India played some really good cricket in their last 4 games and they are already leading 2-0 in this series. Chances are they are going to win but anything can happen in cricket, Who knows Kiwis might beat the shit out of opposition team in the next game  Grin. I would love to see Kiwis winning this game otherwise consider this dead series.  Undecided
You!
I was hoping to get all the winnings alone as I was expecting rest of the members to bet for India :-P
Tough luck for both of us in here and so far akhjob seems to get all if deadly does not want to take a share from him by betting on India :-D

Lol and was expecting you to bet on India this time, you losing majority of bets when going against Indian Team. Why don't you change your bet and put money on Indian team? Tongue forget about odd and save your sats.  Wink

Off topic-  Odds are not juicy for Kiwis team right now. I might put some money on them if odds improves.

I don't want Rohit for the next 3 T20s as he is not in good form and just getting single digits and is the first one to lose his wicket. Prithvi is also in the squad so they can try him instead and take a chance. I don't even like Dube's performance as he is eager to hit 6s and 4s from the start.

Shaw is not with the T-20 squad, he already playing unofficial ODI series (India A vs New Zealand A) in New Zealand.

Yeah, Dube is not playing long inning but as of now he's playing according to his domestic reputation, which is big hitting so give it a some time.

I would suggest everyone to leave their comments on this:
Would you join the pool  and how much entry fee you are okay with?

Royse777: Yes and minimum 0.002BTC.

I am on same boat as @akhjob as i only watched PSL couple of times and didn't had good vibe watching any game except few spell of bowling but its rare nowadays everywhere. Having said that if our community really interested so count me in as well, free or paid i am ready for both type of pools. Although i would not suggest any free pool as it only attracts spam.

Rahul is not playing too many games to be rested. If they want to rest someone, then they should do that to the senior players such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Mohammad Shami (I am not adding Jasprit Bumrah here, because he just came back from a lengthy injury break). If India wins today's match, then the outcome of the 3rd match will be insignificant. The team management can ask 2-3 senior players to take rest for the third match and can give opportunity to some of the younger players who are warming the bench now.

Rahul is not playing from where did you get this information? Can you submit the source!

Yes, the management should rest all the senior players and let them test the new batch. This will give a clear picture of those who can be part of the worldcup team.

I guess @Sithara meant to say that he's not playing all 3 formats for quite some time similar to Virat, Rohit and Shami (Rahul is technically out from the Test Squad) and India just finished 2 back to back Test series in their home season.

The straight boundary is just around 50 meter lol. A bouncer from bowler went to one bounce four above the wicket keeper without even touching the bat. We here have bigger boundaries in our tennis ball cricket.

Lol Yeah, minimum boundaries needs to be at least 65 meter. otherwise its joke for batsmen and nightmare for Bowlers.

Considering the short boundaries situation in this ground, we must admire the Indian bowlers and give them full credit that they restricted Kiwis batsmen easily, Twice.

NewZealand and Indians playing at same Auckland ground, which is batsmen friendly but scorecard showing very different picture. did they changed the pitch? if not then Indian bowlers must be doing their job perfectly.

Edit : Damn Sir Jadeja bowling spell looking sweet. Manjrekar hiding his face again  Grin

Edit : Solid bowling from Indian side.

Poor South Africa, nothing went in their favor when bowling tailenders. Must be a nightmare if No 10 and 11 making runs against you. You gotta feel for them no matter what, 80+ runs partnership for 10th wicket is brutal for any team.

This series is almost done for Protea fans, they must be crossing their fingers for another home series.
South Africa needs to travel to Zimbabwe for a series or Bangladesh should visit South Africa for the batsman to regain some confidence, touring Bangladesh will be difficult as they will stack with spinners which will be a struggle again for South Africa, they need to find some easy tours rather than taking on top level teams and hamper their confidence further.

Don't know if they are planning to visit or host Zimbabwe and they have one series against Bangladesh, not sure when.

But before that South Africa has bigger fish (Aus) to fry in next couple of months. let's hope England put them out of their misery first.  Tongue

Some might say that despite being successful captain and best wicketkeeper, he must earn his place in Indian squad by competing with young guys. he set the same example when he refused to include Sehwag, Ganguly and Dravid in the team by stating " they are slow in the field" and "want to give youngsters chance".

The only person in your list that I felt sorry about was Ganguly. Sehwag was slow and so was Dravid on the field, the only exception for Dravid was that he also was a partime wicketkeeper. Both were non reliable batsmen. Creating records and not playing for the team was there biggest problem. If you change their batting order they would collapse. That was the biggest problem. Dhoni is far better than those.

I wouldn't say better, Sehwag was explosive opener in Test and Dhoni was good at middle order as Anchor and finisher in the limited overs cricket (not in Test). Everyone has their own strength and weakness and everyone fades out as time passes by or when they gets old, so changes are good that's how new blood gets into the picture. in the end selection should be based on merit and performance, no matter who play or not.

For argument, if someone creates All time World or Indian Test XI. Then Dhoni is not going to make out even in 30 or 15 men squad. In limited over cricket? Sure he can, easily and rightly so, his record speaks for him. On the other hand Sehwag is all time great opener in Test cricket history and there is a resaon Dravid's nick name is "The Wall"

Since there is no clarity from Dhoni nor the selectors whether he will be selected for the World Cup, IPL is the only platform where we will see Dhoni perform and i am sure he will be performing really well so that all the critics will be silent for a long time as he usually performs really well during the IPL as a captain and as a finisher.

What a dilema the most successful captain and one of the best wicketkeeper in the world has to prove himself once again to be part of the worldcup team. I sometimes ask myself those so called cricket critics and some of the selectors how well did they perform when they were part of the team.

His being part of the team is moral booster for the youngsters.

With KL Rahul coming as a n opener I do not think Shaw will get the chance to open. I think he will come after Virat as that where the Indian team is struggling. After Virat the batting oder is very shaky. There is a need for a stong and stable bats man after him.
In this match KL Rahul opened the innings and is Prithvi Shaw in the T20 scheme of things, i have not seen him play in a match but he is a talent for the future, they have 3 ODI and hopefully he will get a chance there and i expect Sanju Samson and Shaw getting some opportunity to prove their talents to perform in the international stage. In T20 today the middle order young players performed well than i expected and India does have the bench strength, they just need to give opportunities to these youngsters to showcase their talent.

Guess, you are mixing T-20 and ODI squad. Prithvi is Dhawan's replacement for ODI not T-20 and Prithvi Shaw is not good for T-20 as he's competing for Opening slot with likes of Rohit-Rahul-Dhawan. In ODI he can get chance if KL Rahul comes at middle order as Batsman-WK.

Quote
ODI squad: Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma, Prithvi Shaw, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shivam Dube, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur, Kedar Jadhav.

T20I squad:Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma, Sanju Samson, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shivam Dube, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Washington Sundar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur
Shikhar Dhawan out of NZ tour and team again, this time shoulder injury. dude is getting old and body saying no more stunt in the field. In T-20 Sanju Samson is his replacement and for ODI Prithvi Shaw.

Iyer managed to bring back the match and kept the runs going. Now just 19 runs from 13 balls and I don't think we need Jadeja or this partnership broken as then it may go till the last ball. Now with 2 fours each over, we can get the score easily.
Shreyas Iyer took the game away from New Zealand and India won the match with one over remaining and Tim Southee was taken apart by Shreyas Iyer and won the match with a 6 which is incredible, i knew he had the potential but Shreyas Iyer proved why the selectors had faith in him and he played the innings of his lifetime and gave India a very good start for the series .  

India always looks very strong team when middle order steps up and takes responsibility. Good to see Iyer finished the game and didn't threw away his wicket. Kiwis must be kicking themselves for missing the run-out opportunity of Kohli-KL Rahul, after all they cemented the base for India.

Kiwis were 15-20 runs short here. all credit goes to Bumrah for death overs, as this ground is bad for bowlers no matter you bat first or second.


I still don't understand why they continue to provide Thakur so many chances even after his disappointing bowling efforts these days. There are much better options available and I feel like the selectors could have chosen better in this case.

Heard from commentators that Navdeep Saini is suffering from Jet Leg as this is his first tour in NZ. he's might replace thakur soon.

Match is about to kick in, Kiwis going to bat first.

Interestingly no Sanju Samson for 1st match. really feel bad for this guy. he debuted in international T-20 back in 2015 and played only 2 match in last 4-5 years, most of the times he sits at the bench.

In case of Pant, he got jump-start because he's talented but to keep his place in the team performance is the key and majority here agree that he needs some time off as his performance is below average for quite some time, young guy so he shouldn't worry much. Rahul looked good so far but it doesn't mean he's exceptional WK (Part time WK as @Sithara mentioned). he's looking good only because Pant failed to capitalize and we didn't see much of Sanju Samson. Everything is open for discussion, it would be interesting to see what kohli & Co decides. i am favoring Sanju in T-20 and Rahul in ODI.

KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma are the best combination if they are not looking for left hand right hand combination and with the inclusion of Prithvi Shaw in the team i am not sure where he is going to play, as you said if the team wants Prithvi Shaw to open the batting then KL Rahul will come in the middle order to strengthen the team composition.

Shaw is pure opener. and opens in Ranji, Did open in u19 World cup, Open the inning in the Test Match against Windies.
