One-Day Woes!

The selectors have done an excellent job in picking up the test side and the T20 team. Although the “one-day” matches win loss record on paper looks impressive, the key concern of structuring the middle order batting must take shape soon. There are signs of right steps being taken in this direction, still as a cricket enthusiast, I am tempted to add my “two-bit”. KL Rahul is our natural opening batsman whose innate style is to score fast. In both, the test matches and the T20s, he has shown his flair and penchant for scoring quick runs. He has lost his position...

South Africa sojourn – Could India have done better in the first test match!

May be, maybe not. But certainly, they should do a few things better. Never embark on such tours as the present South African one, or to England, New Zealand without a few practice games under your belt. KL Rahul must replace Shikhar Dhawan.

That too when Yuvraj Singh and Kedar Jadhav were there to bowl a few overs of spin. Ravichandran Ashwin did not...

IPL 2017 ponderable Issues!

How ironical for RCB to get it all wrong, despite having one of the most successful captains in Virat Kohli and an accomplished back end think tank. What could have been the reason – arrogance of having Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers to do the job every time? Even this they didn’t do correctly as Chris Gayle was time and again dropped and therefore it did not do his rhythm any good. He is a match winner with 10000 plus T20 runs with an average of over 41 at a staggering strike rate of 175%!!! However,...
