Re: India in Australia Test series 2020-21

I'll be honest, I did not expect this level of grit from India. Specially after that 36 all out. Rahane has now captained India in 4 tests (3 of them against Aus, 2 away from home) - 3 wins and a draw. Yet to lose. Incidentally, his name "Ajinkya" in Marathi, his mother tongue, means invincible / un...

Re: State of SA

The ICC would have to move on from rigidity on this issue and try to accommodate substitutes in cases like this. The whole thing became completely one-sided. Of course some teams can take advantage of this and let low performers during a match to fake injuries, or sub someone after their designated ...

Re: State of SA

Sri Lanka have lost 3 players to injury during this match That’s incredible Bangladesh lost a similar # last year vs India. Nayeem, A batsman and I think Abu Jayed all got bounced to injury. On top of that Shakib was banned, and Tamim asked to be rested. That is nowhere near the misery the Lankans ...

The shots and the best Zimbabweans to play them

Which Zimbabwean comes to mind first for each of these type of shots - who is the best exponent / most elegant exponent (when it comes off) in your opinion? Here's what I could think of. If I have missed any specific shots, please add too... Straight drive - Vusi Sibanda Reverse sweep - Andy Flower ...

Re: What the next scheduled series for Zimbabwe?

I would be shocked if all those 8 tests actually happened in 2021. Even the star studded team of the Flower-Streak era did not get so many matches in a year that easily.

So, it would be better to tone down the expectations so that we are less disappointed when some cancellations happen.

Re: U-19 trial tournament,2020

I personally think Chatara has been a huge beneficiary of playing against weaker teams than the old guard. That is true for all the folks who played post 2004. So, that would apply to Jarvis as well. Tests, yes--even though Jarvis' record is on par with Chatara and Panyangara; but I rate Jarvis hig...

Re: India in Australia Test series 2020-21

Yeah, NZ really murdered WI in that series too. Did not expect that in the second test at least, with KW missing.

Re: Rocks vs Tuskers & Eagles vs Rhinos

Thanks as always for the update John, and it is disheartening to know Ervine went for a reverse sweep and perished. He is not as compulsive a reverse sweeper from what we have seen in the international arena at least - not as compulsive as Taylor, Williams, Taibu and Hammy - but well... Taylor, Wil...
