Once it reaches knockout, pitch will aid spin for sure after so many matches. I am sure spin will be a decisive factor for team win/loss.

Wrist spin will be key this World Cup

Paul, I never said they won’t have any impact.But its between 21-40 over when spinners come in and this is where game could be made or broken depending on how batsman play quality spin.

Paul if you watched yesterday DC vs MI you would know what I meant!

What about lynnsanity.

Lyon should not be a World Cup certainty

Zampa turns at pace .Make no mistake!

It’s a fear of unknown. It won’t come from a recognized player. Perhaps at the end of WC, we would be in a better position to say.

For example, Grant Elliot smoking Dale Steyn out of the park in the last over who would have thought .

The X-Factor who can win India the World Cup

It’s not a regular performer who gives you the X-factor, but it’s the fear of unknown. With Rishabh at the crease, India needing 70 runs in 5 overs, teams will know it’s not out of range for India as long as Pant stays on. With Kedar, MS of now you know it’s not reachable.
I am not saying he will do it always but you know he can do it

It seems you have been clueless about Rishabh Pant career graph in Test Matches.

Not to forget Hazelwood did pretty well in Champions Trophy in 2017 picking up six wickets against NZ. Jhye is still raw. Hazelwood provides control. Just Indians didn’t play him well don’t mean others will follow the suite. I would replace him for Starc but not for Hazelwood.

Jhye Richardson is on the verge of stealing Josh Hazlewood's World Cup spot

It’s not a man to man comparison, but a player should do the job assigned to him. You don’t pick best players in 11 but best 11 as per condition. Clarke admitted error in choosing Starc, Johnson in playing 11 for Ashes 15 instead of Peter Siddle who was perfect for English situation.
Though Hazelwood didn’t have a great tour of the UK in 2015, his Mcgrath like mold gives him edge in a condition which aid swing and seam.
I agree Jhye Richardson is future but for WC, Ashes replacement for Hazelwood? I don’t think so.

Well that’s what happened !

Why either team could win the fourth India vs England Test

True. But purely from cricketing point of view, Ind outclass Pak!

World Cup 2019: India vs Pakistan preview and prediction

Today’s Sri Lanka win precisely the reason, why I believe Lankan are fav over Aus, SA in WC.Too much talent to write them off.

Fair enough!

Analysing your country's World Cup chances (Part 1)

Yes, semi-finals is what will be the most important match for India.It could be a close contest like NZ-SA last time.If India gets through it, they could beat England in finals.Hopefully, they don’t face Eng in semis.

A lot off the field was happening too. Coach -Players disputes.India especially Virat didn’t have the body language like he always does.
I don’t think CT final kinda loss will happen again in big matches for India .

World Cup 2019: India vs Pakistan preview and prediction

Did u forget Bumrah no-ball? Add Kuldeep-Chahal in the mix. MS Dhoni back in form. Pak is never reaching 300 again.
Ind should win contest easily.
If one off day was choke, then Pak has choked n number of times since the 2000s.

World Cup 2019: India vs Pakistan preview and prediction

For God sake,this is 2019.

Shane Warne has named his Ashes team, and it's actually not as ridiculous as we'd have thought

It’s one thing happening one time around and another doing rounds, rounds as with South African team.

Analysing your country's World Cup chances: Part two

Yes, I did miss out Rabada. And under the leadership of Faf, this has done some great things but there is a much better team than SA. I don’t expect them to go beyond semis. They just lack that spark. Faf, the captain, and the batsman will be the key. But even if they do surprisingly well to go till semis. I am not sure if their current players can withstand the pressure of the chokers tag.

Analysing your country's World Cup chances: Part two

Excelled during different points in series at home.Mark Wood had a good series against SA back in 2017, if he stays fit no reason he cannot repeat those performance.Willey, Plunkett as well have done well in when it mattered.
It’s not England of old where ball will do a lot.Times have changed.Average, economy rate isn’t true indication of what they achieved.The fact that they are still in team shows how greatly they are valued by Three Lions.

Analysing your country's World Cup chances: Part two

Don’t expect Indians to be outclassed like they were in Eng,SA.
Australia if they have to win the series have to make tracks which aid swing and that’s death knell for Australia too .
So while all may look glommy for now but change in playing 11 and more practice should help India.
Like all Indian I understand what’s the hue and cry has been. This was best chance for us to beat Eng in their own backyard in generation.

Get ready Australia - an Indian Santa is bringing Christmas early this year

Why is zampa ill treated ? Zampa turns at pace at his best

O'Keefe's Test career looks over

From the top view the restructuring looks fine. Hope it’s user friendly.

The Roar has relaunched! Welcome to a new Roar

Rats-India had enough time and men to make it 2-0.But losing momentum after ODI and wrong choice of team in both test caused our downfall.

At Lords any team could have been bowled out for 100 but when Eng were 124-5 a third seamer could have spelled death knell for England.

Similarly ,7-87 in the second innings R Ashwin who averages 19 against left handers was taken out of the attack and those extra runs were the difference.

Team selection from captain has let us down.

India's likely line-up for the third Test against England

Pandya is he took 3 wickets but when match was out of India’s hand.
