Chennai Super Kings need a new monarch

If the 2000s was a decade when we Indians felt we had arrived as a nation on the world stage, the Indian Premier League was the latest show of that stature – and if there was a team that represented this modern India, it was the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Mission 2020: How does the Indian team look today?

The month of January saw India play some great cricket in the limited-overs internationals against Australia and New Zealand. The comeback series win against the Aussies gave cricket fans a short but sweet three ODI series to remember. A big loss in Mumbai followed by two great games by India to win the series briefly […]

I would agree with your selection..Saini is a better bet over Siraj..

India vs Australia Test series 2020-21: How does the Indian squad look?

They are smart and always play smart cricket. However, they are many times out matched by teams like Australia who are way superior in skills and are also smart

Strategy versus brute force is the tale of New Zealand versus India

Being clever is not often enough to win. Australia and India are quite strong and will beat NZ most of the times in their home conditions. Australia have a huge edge over NZ even in NZ. But that doesn’t take away the smartness of NZ’s planning which definitely adds a lot to their game. If they come up against unwary teams like this Indian team, they will topple them.
The management i mean is the coaches and the captain. They need to practice these ‘set pieces’ of how to bowl to lower order batters. Kohli gets impatient on the field because he goes in and plans or changes.

Strategy versus brute force is the tale of New Zealand versus India

Just like the Australian series last year, this could be battle of the bowlers..both sides seem to possess matchwinning bowlers..tough job for batters

After ODI failure, how are India shaping up for their Tests against New Zealand?

Openers look very shaky..Vihari looked good in the tour game..I hope they don’t send him to open

After ODI failure, how are India shaping up for their Tests against New Zealand?

Hi Paul, The Indian test team looked a solid bet in NZ and now look at bit shaky..In Australia, Mayank made two 50+ scores in Melbourne and Sydney..India’s overseas performances have been in trouble in the past when Sachin and Dravid would invariably be batting with score 10/2.. India has done well, not necessarily win, only when one of the openers has made some decent score..
About the bowling, I am questioning, is the attack fearsome? Now with the injury and lack of form of key personnel..
With respect to pitches, NZ have greeted India with seaming pitches, in most of the series of the past..they don’t take that risk with England and other such team..I would expect them to prepare a seam bowler friendly pitch..

After ODI failure, how are India shaping up for their Tests against New Zealand?

Dube and Sundar are not good options at all..Neither of them are great in any aspect of their game..Dube is one dimensional batter and unimpressive bowler..Sundar, i have no idea what he is..

Mission 2020: How does the Indian team look today?

I agree with your comment that NZ bowling is their second string..Iyer did play well against the Aussies in the ODIs..we will have to track progress to see how this team shapes up

Mission 2020: How does the Indian team look today?

Yep, if this team played the World cup today, they may just win it..If I were opposition captain, I will look to take KL Rahul out..he is the key..

Mission 2020: How does the Indian team look today?

I am totally with you..Five day cricket the way it is played today is just perfect..we don’t need to tinker with something that is working well from the game’s point of view..If audiences in some markets are on interested in tests, the way to get them to like this form is not to reduce its duration. 👍

Hi,
