[Match Threads]: 2018 Tri-Series Matches 3 & 5 | Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka

We can have a single thread for both of the BD vs SL league games. Mashrafee and the boys were at the ground for the ZIM/SL game. Hathu and Samarweera will be able to provide the scoop on most of the BD players. SL will be coming hard in what is essentially a must win game. The pitch is expected to ...

Re: South Africa v India 2nd Test Match

Kohli might deny it, but even Indian fans aren't buying his constantly shifting lineups. He's been captain a little over 2 years and has dropped every player on his team at least once. That is shocking. You can get away with it on doctored pitches at home, but overseas you need to figure out your be...

Re: ICC CWC Qualifiers announced

It all comes down to maximizing matches between the top 8 which has always been the ICC's top priority since the 2006 Champions Trophy was limited to 8 teams. If you recall, the bottom 4 teams (#7-10) had a prelim qualifyer round to join the top 6 who had automatic berths. The 2015 World Cup was sup...

Re: [Match Thread]: 2018 Tri-Series Match 2 | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka

Maybe we were watching different matches with different speed-guns. We never had the bowling speeds for home matches then, and yes I seem to remember that his pace was lower than expected when we toured NZ (which I didn't watch due to the time difference), but what I think I remember very well is t...

Re: Bangladesh Watch 2015-2019

The U-19s just got embarassed by England. Completely outclassed. They are going to get the thrashing of their lifetime vs India in the Quarters. That being said, I just saw 18 yo Hasan Mahmud for the first time. He's 6 feet tall, possibly a bit taller and was bowling around the 132-135 mark but got ...

Re: [Match Thread]: 2018 Tri-Series Match 2 | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka

Ervine is class. Taylor is class. Raza is proving that he's right up there with them. Hamilton should he keep up this form through to the end of Qualifiers will make a case for being up there with those 3 as well. Ervine will come good and so will Taylor. The only question is will it be at the right...

Cricket is so weird sometimes. In what other sport would you have two nations play an international fixture that isn't really an international fixture?
Its to keep the integrity of the records as Jay has pointed out above. Nothing wrong with that.

Re: [Match Thread]: 2018 Tri-Series Match 2 | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=232&v=lbyUizZaMmc Raza is becoming my fave ZIM player now. I didn't rate him when he first came on, but now I think he has amongst the highest averages of the current bunch in both formats. Also has a decent technique as well. I admire his fighting spirit ...

Re: ZIM-BD-SL Tri Series 2018: Pre-series Discussion

Ervine definitely has a weakness to pace and edges behind frequently especially early on in his innings. They were showing stats yesterday and surprisingly, Taylor averages 44 vs spin and 33 vs pace. I don't know what the figures would be for other players, but I would hazard a guess that BT's 44 is...

Re: [Match Thread]: 2018 Tri-Series Match 2 | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka

This was a very important win. 2018 is important for teams to build form (which --> confidence) ahead of the 2019 WC and also to find your best combination and the unique style by which you will go about playing your cricket. Even more so for the sides that will be playing the WCQ in a few weeks tim...
