Despite being a huge fan (don't support any one team though), somehow not feeling excited about IPL this time. Perhaps will take me some time to warm up to watch a league with two new teams.

Overall will keenly watch how the younger batsmen perform

Amount batsmen - Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Pandya, Shreyas Iyer, Unmukt Chand, Mayank Agarwal, Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan, Risabh Pant
Bowlers - Bumrah, a more muscular version of Unadkat, Yajuvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and the likes of Umesh Yadav, Aaron, Shami

Buttler down to open on the team sheets at the moment. Given be explicitly said on interview the other day that he doesn't particularly enjoy coming in to bat in the first 6 and the Indian international opener is down to come in at 3 there would be a more sensible batting order available (if the scorecards are right)?

Doesn't flight the ball, meaning he won't get much dip, might get little bit of drift. Don't see him beating the batsmen with flight. Action doesn't matter too much as long as it is rhythmic and his action does seem rhythmic. I'd like to see his arm deliver the ball from a bit higher position. His other variation delivery that I saw seem very easy to pick. In terms of international quality, he is 2 years away from being 2 years away. Yuzvendra Chahal is a better leg spinning prospect than Murugan. His accuracy is something that can't be taught. We have to see him bowl before deciding if he is in accurate in general or he is just nervous now.

He has good turn, he rather be full than short. SPin bowling quality has declined big time through out the world. The leggies you are seeing right now were the ones that had been bowling even when no leggies were rare and none were playing all 3 format at once. Everyone pretty much now knows that Doosra and "mystery bowlers" are just chuckers or will be found out sooner or later. They all know Leg Spin is the art that has the most demand. Everyone knows that Leggies are pretty much rare and don't excel or get give up leg spin bowling due to discouragements. Ashwin Murugan, Chahal, Jubair Hossain are pretty raw and should be playing club cricket really. Due to demand and the rarity of the art, they are here. Not a fan of Shreyas Gopal. He might go for less run but won't grow.

Dernbach has pace.

Equally useless dude.

He is an INSANE bowler.

Around the 2012-2014 period was his peak. Used to get carted around so much that it infuriated you EVEN as an opponent.

Vinay = Dernbach = :bow:

IPL has no logic.

Some players just start performing in IPL and some forget batting.

Now watch choke kings Gayle, Kohli and ABD screw up yet another IPL. :))

Gayle and ABD, who flopped in World T20, will plunder attacks. Kohli, who was easily the best batsman at WT20, will struggle to score!

Dernbach was carted around yes. However, I don't think I'm embarrassed when watching him. Vinay has the attitude of someone bowling at 145, his pace according to him is 135, his actual pace in the game is 125. His line is all over the place and length is just ridiculous.

Mumbai pitch always has good bounce. So if it seams/turns, it will be a tough challenge for batsmen..

Pune bowling is wokay wokay only.

RP Singh - Meh
Mitch Marshall - Flukey bowler who keeps it tight
Ashwin - wokay only
Murugan Ashwin - Leggie unknown
Bhatia - Pure class (legend in IPL)

No genuine pacer really.

How is it that no matter which team Dhoni captains, they end up with trundlers?

No matter which team he captains, he gets people to say "oh look poor guy...he has no bowlers".

Its a magical ability I must say.

Rahane couldn't buy a boundary on a much flatter pitch against West Indies last week :facepalm:

It's his first game for India in a while. It was his home ground and his role was to play sheet anchor and release pressure off Kohli. I don't think Rahane can match Dhawan in boundary hitting so that was the only logical explanation.

The question is if it was a good strategy on a belter vs WI. Rahane didn't fail the Indian team. It's the team management that failed by picking him over Dhawan.

As far as his mental strength goes, he's got time in tests and is a very good bat. In LOI's however, I always thought he panicks easy because his SR is not that good.

Sadly,that's why this IPL should be interesting to see the likes of Shreyas Iyer and Sarfaraz whether they capable to replace.Also Pandya?He just came into the team bro will not be a part of 50 overs with that garbage bowling.

Chennai had Bravo who won us countless games with his slow balls when others flopped.

The IPLs which Chennai won were because of a strong good pacer.

The first 2 seasons we couldn't go all the way.

IPL 3 which we won, Bollinger played a huge role along with a well rounded spin attack (Ashwin, Murali, Jakati and Raina). Then you had a few trundlers. IPL 4 which we won, Bollinger was there too.

Once he faded and wasn't replaced, we started losing more and more.

Someone like Raina adds a lot of balance to the bowling on spin tracks or flatties that spin a bit.

Pune has no one like him. If Murugan Ashwin flops (he is a wild card - no one knows how he will turn out) then Pune is left with 1 spinner. Can get carted on flatties and turners if that happens.

My boys got off to a good start :msd :msd. One thing though is that faf and rahanne worries me as an opening partnership sometimes they both do not accelerant quickly enough so in a big run chase it could be a worry. Would like too see KP open with rahanne. The bowling looked ishant bowling well surprised me though but he a good bowler who can be inconsistent at times. Onwards and upwards though :kakmal

Idiots. :)))


WE get used to it 5 mins later,but when in the start i saw the 1 looked like 7 absolute crap.But its ok the eyes now.

Also the score in the middle is kinda annoying.

Looks like some graphics you'd see in Endhiran 2. Too many confusing jerseys. This IPL might flop so bad that they might bring back Chennai and Kochi next year. Pune is still Chennai to me.

Yup:(

I guess they wanted to keep the brand value of CSK at the cost of 2 years.

If this season doesn't go well, Chennai will be back next year.

I didnt think he would be a role model some day.

Its a great achievement for anyone to lose 108 kgs, he used to be a object of fun and eyesore in MI matches

Don't think no it's easy for common people...they had special wait loss trainings in US which many cannot afford.

But any way hats off for him to transform completely. (I used to make fun of him)
