T20 World Cup, 2020

Post by prasen9 »

Chances are that this will not be held. But, hey, why not talk about the team. It is never too early to talk about selection. Here is my team:

Rohit, Rahul, Kohli, Karthik, Raina, Iyer, Kuldeep, Chahal, Hardik, Bumrah, Saini.

Krunal, Vijay S., Chahar are the backups. I put in two all-rounders one pace-bowling and one spinner. Of course, I brought back two proven oldies Raina and Karthik. Chances are Manish will replace one of them in reality and the other perhaps will go to Jadeja. Neither has really proved himself in T20s though. Manish will give you solidity and Jadeja will keep the runs down but they seem one-dimensional for this format at this point in their careers. Both are very good fielders though.

We think that there are no chances that this world cup will be held during 2020

Don't worry. We have very good moderators here who can just change the title of this thread to 2021 and we can go on discussing. I have faith that the moderators will save the day and not cause a catastrophic breakdown here. It won't be a big issue. Easy man. Sorry, I mean, easy keeda.

Not gonna happen this year.

By the way, what is "keeda"? In Malayalam, it means "bug" or "insect". Actually "kITam" in Malayalam. Not sure, but it may be from Sanskrit. Because a cricket is like an insect? ... Wouldn't "kreeda" make more sense? I think "kreeda"means playing. Isn't that what "kreerangan" comes from, in Bengali?... like at the "Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Kreerangan" in Kolkata? ... Which was Salt Lake stadium before... That begs multiple questions - Why was it called salt lake before? Was there a lake there? ... and was it like at Salt Lake city, which actually has a lake that is made of salt that is actually salty? ... But what did Vivekananda have to do with football anyway?.... And then, why I am asking questions on football in a cricket thread?

keeda is literally insect or bug so cricketkeeda would be a cricket-bug (like goldbugs who like to buy gold for example).

In Bangla, "kreeda" where the d is the form of "r" means sports. I think it comes from "kreed" which means sports/passtime. I will check that out and if I can find more about the etymology. This is one area where I think we were done a disservice by not being taught Sanskrit and instead taught Hindi in school. Hindi people could pick up from movies, etc. and I really learned Hindi when I was in college.

To the extent I know, Salt Lake City was built in the marshy lands. These can be best called Wetlands. There were many small lakes and marshy lands and those got filled and buildings built. And the water was a bit salty there. It was Yuba Bharati Krirangan before Vivekananda's name was added. When we have to rename bland things, we just add a celebrity's name to it. So, the Howrah Bridge is Rabindra Setu. And the Second Hoogly Bridge is Bidyasagor Setu (named after Ishwor Chondro Bidyasagor). And the airport is Netaji Subhas Chandra Airport. Eden Uddan is still Eden Uddan. We should change that name though.
