    IPL pitches are death beds for fast Bowlers. No one gets spared. Its a purely batsman tournament with some help for spinners.

    Also, the main stays of Indian bowling these days (Shami/Yadav) are not playing.

    Shami/Yadav/BK/Bumrah/Ishant. These are the fast bowlers India relies on.

    Nehra(Too old), Dinda, Vinay, Anikit are there to fill the spots.

    What it does tell is that experience and match sense counts. A guy like Nehra controlled 2011 WC against Pakistan and I'm not even using Munaf patel as an example yet.

    Well Nehra has only played 1 match this IPL and when you were talking about the quality of his bowling I'm sure you were talking based on his past performances not just one game this IPL

    Op is trying to say that Nehra is better now. If you could not handle him when he was bad how can you handle him now.
    You are living in the past. Currently our pace is much superior to yours. We dont rely on our spinneres to take wickets unlike you guys.

    IPL 2017 pushes Sony to top slot in viewership, gets 1,429.5 million impressions in one week

    Riding on the popularity of the ongoing 10th season of the T20 cricket tournament Indian Premiere League (IPL), television broadcaster Sony Max (also the official broadcaster of IPL) became the most-watched television channel across genres during the second week of IPL.

    Sony Max recorded 1,429.5 million impressions between 8 April and 14 April (week 15 of 2017)

    The overall ad expenditure on sports events grew 24.63% to Rs3,510.8 crore in 2016, according to report titled Sporting Nation in the Making IV, jointly published by GroupM ESP, the sports and entertainment arm of GroupM and SportzPower, a sports business news company. Total sports sponsorship saw a growth of 19.33% in 2016.

    Large growth in advert revenues. It means more well paid professional players, and even stronger national teams. Not only is the Indian national team benefiting, but also the Australian and English teams. If the WI board could find a way to work with its players, then the WI team would benefit too. The current weakness of the WI teams also stems from cricket losing out to basketball in capturing the interest of the youth. Well paid WI players are necessary for cricket retaining its popularity.

    Next year with CSK and RR back it should get better. Gujarat has a very good fan following, most of their matches are sold out and seats are packed. It would be a crime to take their franchise away from them. I feel Kerala should also be back. We should play 10 teams in next edition with 2 separate conferences or just pack more games. Baseball players play 162 matches in 180 days. What is the point if having 20 players in the squad if we can't play few more games in the next edition with few more games squeezed in ?

    I read Brendon McCullum grabs the orange batting cap. Who said he may be past it?

    Looks like the best he's looked in the IPL for years, very relaxed. His SR of 150 is as good as I can remember it in this tournament.

    I really don't understand how a team containing AB, Gayle, Kohli, Starc (?) and a decent bunch of Indian domestic players can keep failing year after year. When I read about the RCB, I thought they would dominate the IPL and have at least three-four trophies under their belt by now.

    RCB is like the SAF team in major tournaments. MI always is a pleasure to watch - the management/ coaching aspect of MI sets them apart - Sachin , Ponting , Jayawardene , Jonty.

    Because the level of play is very, very high and the others play even better than RCB.

    Players give it their best when they play in the IPL as they know that if they don't they will not do well at the auction next season.

    Because their strategy is very poor. They waste so many balls early in the innings and use only 3 or 4 wickets. The result is, if it works they end up 213/2, but when it doesn't they either end up 180/1 and lose because the other team uses their brain, or they just collapse and barely have any total.

    Ok, does that make him great lol?

    This thread is not about BD or any country.

    His ODI average is ~40. His average against ENG, Aus, NZ, SA is ~60.

    Mustafiz ODI average is like under 20 from whatever games he played, so yeah you are wrong in that regards too.

    I cant remember the last time I seen him bowl for IND, even though I dont follow cricket as much these days.

    His ODI ave is 40, against top sides it is like 60 lol. Stats don't lie, he is a pure trundler who is ripping IPL at the moment.

    Pune and RCB seems to be making late charges for the playoffs.

    Good question , from what I think , each team plays 14 games each so it's the midway point for most of em

    Ahan, thanks. So it means RCB still have a chance. Will be rooting for them and KKR.


    Pakistan is that kid who never studies for his exams but is surprised when he fails.

    IPL is played by 8 teams in home and away format which means teams play 7x2= 14 matches

    RCB is playing Hyderabad next time - this will be a cracker of a game - ABD , Virat and Gayle are due to fire now and Hyderabad is a top team.

    I really wish DD can sneak into the playoffs but Pune may beast it through.

    Mumbai Indians , KKR and SRH look to be top 3
