  1. Kohli should have sent Washi instead of Ashwin with Pant. Both left armers against southpaw bowling. Easy picks. No phenomenonal Root bowling yet. India could have been 150/5 then instead of 133/8, eventually all out for 145. Nothing matters now, but just thoughts Batsmen most times dismissed by Ashwin (Tests): 11 BEN STOKES 10 David Warner 9 Alastair Cook 7 Ed Cowan/ James Anderson Spinners getting a wicket of the first ball of an innings: Bobby Peel v Aus 1888 Bert Vogler v Eng Oval 1907 R Ashwin v Eng Chennai 2020/21 Axar Patel v Eng Ahmedabad 2020/21 * Lowest totals for England vs India: 81 Ahmedabad 2020/21 * 101 The Oval 1971 102 Mumbai WS 1979/80 102 Leeds 1986 112 Ahmedabad 2020/21 Most wkts by spinners in a D/N Test 27 Ind v Eng Ahmedabad 2020/21 * 24 Pak v SL Dubai 2017/18 22 Pak v WI Dubai 2016/17 08 Aus v NZ Perth 2019/20 Make that 28. Washi got a consolation last wicket Ten-wicket hauls in D/N Tests: 11/70 AXAR PATEL v Eng Ahmedabad 2020/21 * 10/62 Pat Cummins v SL Brisbane 2018/19 10/174 Devendra Bishoo v Pak Dubai 2016/17 Fewest Tests to 400 wickets: 72 M Muralitharan 77 R ASHWIN 80 R Hadlee/ D Steyn 84 R Herath 85 A Kumble Phew. Root was great with the lucky conditions
  2. That sums up this test. If they play till 9:30 / 10, local time, it'll be over today...
  3. Kohli has gone with Ashwin, Axar and Washington and I'd say it's paying dividends... 2 ticked out of three. Bonus from Ishant, Washi with the willow more than the pink ball ig First one wasted a review. The other had a quick fifty before walking back. Not bad overall Beautiful I'll get to Modi later... You haven't. Not much anyway Since your jinxed don't extend to match predictions, I'd agree Captain too And Modi... He is popular but not for much right reasons. A school dropout selling tea (chaiwallah) becoming the Prime Minister of one of the rising superpowers of the world sounds like perfect material for underdog rise story but isn't. Hindus are the majority in India and Modi along with RSS/BJP/VHP etc and other radical Hindutva outfits and political parties have used 'accidental' religious riots and religious jingoism to their benefit Sorry for the political rambling, ranting
  4. Dunno about Leach yet.... But you've gone and jinxed Root!
  5. Double post, but have you guys looked at the absolutely amazing Motera stadium in Ahmedabad!? Biggest in the world. Move over Melbourne, Eden Gardens. 1,10,000 seating capacity, half more than enough for the 3rd pink ball day night test. More facts here,
  6. Shit shit shit... Turns out it was George Bernard Shaw who famously remarked the 11 fools playing, 11,000 fools watching and not Winston Churchill as I wrongly believed. Tho it's more like 22 'fools' playing and 22 million 'fools' watching now, I could tolerate it if it was Churchill, after all, Winston called Gandhi himself an half naked fakir... But Shaw!? Unacceptable
  7. Gee, thanks. I can't believe how I missed the emboldened. Especially the first. Pls do Fair Hell Yeah Roger Roger
  8. Fair enough You have all the resources at your disposal courtesy me, courtesy Google Agreed. Mini auctions tend to be like this. But once in 5 years mega auction where teams can retain only 3, Right to match 2 out of 4,things get interesting. Same 80 crore rupees purse. Plus talks of new teams
  9. Double Post ig Squad list of all teams I'm a diehard CSK fan as some of you might know from last (miserable) season. The only miserable one. Most consistent. I'd be carried away and go on... so here's a list of all records. First whole squad again CHENNAI SUPER KINGS Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, N. Jagadeesan (wk), Robin Uthappa, MS Dhoni (c&wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, R. Sai Kishore, Mitchell Santner, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Lungi Ngidi, Josh Hazlewood, KM Asif, Moeen Ali, K Gowtham, Cheteshwar Pujara, M Harisankar Reddy, K. Bhagath Varma, C Hari Nishanth Emboldened obviously foreign players Italicized are native state of Tamilnadu players. Chennai is in that state as some might know. CSK has had a bad rep of not picking Tamil players in auctions. They let Varun Chakravarty, Ravi Ashwin (ex csk, exception partially), Murugan Ashwin, Washington Sundar, Shah Rukh Khan etc. The ones they pick are mostly wasted underrated talent made to be bench warmers like Baba Aparajit, Abhinav Mukund, Jaggadeesan, Nishant etc with the exception of Subramanyam Badrinath and Ravi Ashwin. Here's my CSK playing XI Openers Ruturaj Gaikwad (4 ipl matches, 3 half centuries, 3 fifties in a row) Faf. Nothing else needs to be said One down Raina. Same 4th Ambati Rayudu or Jaggadeesan 5th MSDhoni obviously 6th Sam Curran or Dwayne Bravo 7th SIR Jadeja or Sai Kishore or Krishnappa Gowtham 8th Mitchell Santner or Karn Sharma or Imran Tahir 9th Shardul Thakur Look at the batting depth potential... 10th Deepak Chahar obviously 11th Lungisani Ngidi or Josh Hazlewood 4 foreign players limitations considered
  10. IPL 2021 AUCTION OVER! Phew Raining money... Chris Morris will be the most surprised as he becomes the highest earner via auction. Whopping 16.25 crore rupees. 162.5 million rupees. How much is that in dollars? Damn. You guys do the math please, yourself. He'll be like "ME!?" Totally not worth it Rajasthan... You let Smith, but this... Kyle Jamieson and Jhye Richardson were signed by Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings respectively for record prices of 15 & 14 crore rupees. Maxwell's potential got him 14.25 crores from RCB. Will he live up to his expectations at least this year...? Meanwhile Krishnappa Gowtham became the highest-earning uncapped player in IPL auction history after Chennai Super Kings signed him for Rs 9.25 crore. Cheteshwar Pujara picked up by a team after 6 years. CSK... Worth noting he was U19 World cup Man of the series... Tasmanian quick Riley Meredith was a surprise pick of sorts when Punjab Kings shelled out Rs 8 crores to acquire his signature Tamil Nadu’s swashbuckling middle-order batsman M Shahrukh Khan for Rs 5.25 crore picked by PBKS. SRK, same as name as the Bollywood Superstar and owner of Kolkata Knight Riders. Memes aplenty about him and Preity Zinta, owner of Punjab. Veer meets Zara lol. Mumbai picked Arjun Tendulkar just for his surname. Nepotism. Sam Billings who went unsold the first time made a timely tweet and got picked the next round... Harbhajan got himself a KKR seat. Smith 2.20 cr Delhi. No 1 Dawid Malan picked cheap by Punjab Oh and Moeen is in CSK... @Paxter Very coincidental, since he was asking Ashwin about a popular Tamil movie star's latest update I could go on.... Here's the full list Lots of notable Unsold Guptill, Hales, Roy, Marsh, C Anderson, Darren Bravo, Cottrell, A Rashid, Sodhi, Aaron, McClenaghan, Abbot, Carey, Wade, Perera etc Oh and SRH picked Kedar Jadav for base price. After CSK, I thought impossible
  11. Call Sundar Pichai. Tell him you have a recommendation from someone from where he is
  12. David Lean's films take place in global scenarios. Asia, Africa, Europe maybe even Americas, if I've missed it. International enough by my standards. Ok. Are you French by any chance? If so, Pardonnez mes péchés monsieur ou madame Jean Renoir Luc Besson Jean-Luc Goddard Francois Truffaut Jean Cocteau Jacques Rivette " Audiard
  13. My favorite International (read: non us/uk/aus/eng speaking) filmmakers... In no particular order, mind you Ingmar Bergman Akiro Kurasawa Satyajit Ray Vittorio De Sica Fedderico Fellini Abbas Kuroistami Jean-Luc Goddard Jean Renoir Sergio Leone (i daresay) Roman Polanski Werner Herzog Pedro Almodovar Alfonso Cuaron Alejandro González Innaritu Guillermo Del Toro Boong Jon Hoo Majid Majidi David Lean LJP Mani Ratnam Anybody else worth mentioning?
