Hola people, Time for cricket fans to get back to some discussions :mg: Here we kick off the season after a short break post IPL. :mg: Indian team starts it off with the short tour to Sri Lanka. Use this thread for all ...
Page 1 of 5

Finally after a long time .... found the thread... to pour my cricket feelings,,,,

Irfan pathan with new ball looks better than zaheer/yadav... he just need to increase his pace by 8-10 kms/hr... got dilshan out with trademark late inswinger.... BEAUTY

Post MURLI --- lankan pitches have become sporty with descent aid to fast bowlers,, its strange that currently SRI LANKA has the worst bowling attack amongst the top TEST

TEAMS...

PS: Rahi bhai/Vision bhai/naga bhai & other puys... great to see u puys keeping cricket threads alive & kicking... some respite for cricket freaks like me...

LIFE is all about choices u make & so is CAT !!

Gambhir and Kohli carrying on with their super, consistent form .. Irfan has showed again the value of a bowling all rounder to this Indian side, his performance in the last ODI (5 wickets) and during the chase with Raina (3rd ODI) was notable ..

Concerns for India:
- Middle order - Time for Raina to be promoted to no.4? What happens to Rohit
- Rahane in place of Sehwag
- Zaheer's form has somewhat slackened since the last 12-15 months

@rahicecream said: Lots at stake in this dead rubber. 1) India can displace Aussies from no-1 rank after a long long time. 2) Time for my 4-1 prediction to get right 3)Will No-hit sharma get another game?
2) We can surely count on this today..

3) I cant see sharma anymore....He bats badly..just because he fields well dosent make any good....

Rahane should pitch in place of Sehwag probably for next ODI
BTW..What is the Squad for T20 against SL ?
Squad remains the same as far as i remember 😃

India wins the series convincingly :thumbsup:


Major credit to some good show put up by Kohli, Gambhir, Raina and some good bowling except at death overs.


Rohit Sharma continues to be a flop, good to see Tiwari encashing the opportunity, Pathan having a decent series so far ( much needed for India from all rounder perspective ).


Still wondering to see Rohit continuing and Rahane not getting a chance.


Anyways, good start for the season and much needed booster before India returns for World Cup T20 !!

Is the balance of the team less important than accommodating an individual in the team ? Seriously baffling

Yesterday again showed the frailty of the current batting line up in conditions even slightly conducive to bowling.

The problem is not in number of batsmen in the line up, 6 batsmen is a good way forward. The problem is in the composition.

Sehwag has been very inconsistent in the last 3-4 years, and the middle order apart from Kohli does not have a mature, patient approach. Rohit Sharma and Raina have not delivered that well. Unless the track is a belter, Rahane should get to play. With him, at least 3 players (Gambhir and Kolhi the other two) can be relied upon to play a patient, mature kind of innings.
