Whoever the anonymous, If you don't accalerate the Lambo, the car will be a waste. Mathews is just like that. I do not remember when he scored a 50+ score with 100+ SR. After WC 2015, He has only 2 50+ scores with 100+ SR.
Cant we find a bowler who consistantly bowls at least around 140ks? I mean im sick of these park players that get selected who bowl 130ks and below ...... If we find a true speedster i dont even mind if he gets smacked around the park ..... atleast its exciting to watch.
There was news that they changed the schedule again to feature both the tests and a tri-series.
It is mentioned on this more recent espncricinfo report: http://www.espncricinfo.com/zimbabwe/content/story/1057013.html
Though I believe I saw it earlier on another news site.
@Ravi Doha I'm assuming you're an Indian fan who thinks the IPL makes players world beaters. Yeah, a lot of good that did to the Indian team who were beaten by NZ on a spinning pitch and then wiped away by the West Indies. Funny how since the introduction of the IPL India hasn't actually won a single T20 tournament. And I'm sure the IPL helps India not get beaten away from the SC and the Windies. Oh wait, it doesn't because they would get mauled in England, SA, Australia and New Zealand.
@Thilly Looking at his most recent T20 matches, he has one decent knock (48 off 23 with 7 sixes) out of 10 or so matches. If you're looking for someone who can can hit some boundaries, I would say Kulasekara is the guy. He might be down on pace, his inswing is non-threatening and he's not in favour with the selectors, but he has been decent with the bat (I remember on the recent NZ ODI games where he scored a fifty to drag us to a semi-respectable total). And even with his low pace, he can bowl pretty well at the death. I would say Maharoof has been in better form leading up to the England tour, despite his poor showing with both bat and ball on the actual tour.
Better team management make this change soon for odi and test.
@2:47 the factor of runup which has been mentioned by Kasun might be factor you are relating with overstepping issue. All in all, he seems to be an exciting prospect with some kind of an accuracy & ability of moving the ball a bit. I personally feel that if he can rectify that issue of runup and a slight adjustment of arm when he is bowling soon, he might feature in Australia next year. Who knows, time will tell you........
Actually I am looking for a bowler who can bat a bit in depth overs. I will take any promising allrounder apart from Thisara in these days.
Agree with @Gaja ... I don't blame him for defending, but that's not his normal style of play... He is best at 6, i.e, when aggressive...
Do they need a month and a bit to think of new selection criteria? Honestly, why are we having an awards ceremony for 2015 at the end of 2016? Especially when the national team will be away on tour to Africa. Another example of SLC letting down its crickets and the fans, and I hope there is nothing more behind this delay.
