I'm like a Ninja, swift :ninja
lol he has only played one test match and that too against a weak Aussie side ..let him smack Steyn for fours then we will see
yup like saeed ajmal
even technique wise he's > sehwag bystander would agree.
no way ..Sehwag played his first test in SA and scored a century , I doubt dhawan will ever able to do that .
in SA he avgs 25 :shh but in india against SA he avgs 50
anyway lets stick to the OP.
Kohli and pujara are going to be the key against SA.
Yasir Hameed also had legendary stats when he started his career, Atleast in tests, but he never improved his game plus they messed up his batting position
Some of Our new players somehow think that they're perfect hence they rarely improve :Hafeez
Tbh Yasir was quite talented and should have been persisted and removed his weaknesses. Instead they changed his batting position and then dropped.. Recalled, played few games and then dropped again.
Yeah thats a factor too.
Axing youngsters after 2-3 bad performance and persisting with seniors because of the same have also played in the destruction of many talented players. ..
What about this man?
Averaging 50+ in Both tests and ODIs.
Virat Kholi one of the best batsmen on the earth! - Pakistani
15 of his 16 ODI centuries have come in wins.
Best ODI batsman in the world at present.
Umar Akmal is better, all his tons have come in wins #ATG
10 of them whilst chasing. All wins.
Almost every young player has once been compared to Umar Akmal.. #Standard #Pakpassion
was reading first page of this thread,it's fun :lol
I agree Kohli is very good ODI batsman but come on he is not the best batsman present on earth. He is not even the best batsman in ODIs let alone on earth. Hashim Amla Ameer saab says Salaam.
Hashim Amla 100's/innings in ODIs- 6.64
Kohli 100's/innings in ODIs - 6.94
Hashim Amla's S/R in ODIs - 91.19
Kohli's S/R in ODIs - 87.50
And on top of this Amla is a far superior batsman in Tests to Kohli.
So for me the current best batsman in the World is Hashim Amla the Cricketer with zero haters, what a man and what a player. :clap
Hashim Amla averaging 53.16 outside Asia against the top 8 teams with 6 100s .
Kohli averaging 47.75 outside Asia against top 8 teams with only 3 100s.
If you exclude just Srilanka then Kohli average drops even further even in Asia too to 46.90 with 9 100s.
AB Deviliers is better than both.
Please dont compare Kohli with Sachin. No Doubt He is the best ODI player , No doubt he will be legendary but its too early to decide to compare him with Sachin . we need to understanding that nowadays most of the pitches are batting friendly pitches, ODI rules have changed, for ex : Powerplay, new ball rule etc. Its favors mostly batsmen. So therefore I still feel that Sachin was playing at the time when he had to face legendary bowlers from Pakistan, Aus, SA and WI in gritty bouncy pitches.
lol yeah just because he is a good Muslim .
kohli in ODIs >>> amla
while in tests amla is clearly better
How he is better than Amla in ODIs can you prove it?
He doesn't succumb to pressure while amla is a born choker . you can't expect it from amla to play the innings like kohli played , 183 against pak, that 133 runs against Lanka chasing 320 in 40 overs 52 ball century . Besides amla like most of the saffer batsmen (except devilliers) lacks X factor and is plain boring. now I know the reason why do you like him but please keep that to yourselves and don't shove your opinion down to our throats.
Off topic : junior jamals were looking awesome in those pics
Amla is no choker. Kohli IMO is the better ODI batsmen while Amla is the better Test Batsmen. But none of this makes Amla a choker, and you probably think he's boring because you don't like Tests. IPL has corrupted your mind
You are very wrong if you are thinking that I like Amla because he is a good Muslim. Keeping religion aside he is a very very good batsman too. Currently the best batsman in World of Cricket and his stats is showing this. What do you mean by boring? Because he don't show emotions or he don't swear like the big mouth Kohli does not mean that he is boring. Just look at his strike rate better than Kohli, so how is he boring? I am not at all undermining Kohli but Amla is better than him in both ODIs & Tests.
Kohli is only 24.
Pakistanis use age factor only for fixer like Aamir..
Azharuddin , jadeja, Sreesanth rings any bells ?
He is a choker . I do like tests , was trolling on pp the other day
In my opinion Virat is a far more better player than Amla, No doubt Amla is class. the statement that Amla is " Boring " was a silly reason to explain his attributes. the way kohli is going, Im sure he will break sachin's record of most 100s in ODIs but than again Sachin being a great cricketer is also a very humble human being and Kohli needs to tone down his attitude.
I already said that he is better in tests but in ODIs its different ,.as I mentioned earlier you can't expect amla to play a innings like kohli did against a thrilling high tension match against arch rivals Pakistan. He bats good when his team is batting first and there s no extra pressure but kohli is a different beast altogether . just look at the record, 15 centuries out of 16 in win. and yes I like the aggression in him ,maybe its because I m not a parent
So ... Amir should not be labelled as " Fixer "
its all about winning , gaaliyaan makes match more exciting
TOP SPINNER is a Pakistani himself
my point was about age Yaar
I know dude He is and by the way Galliaan baar baar achi nahi lagthi ek limit par .. im sure when he constipates he swears teri ma , BC @(*@#(@! .... regardless getting out on duck or scoring 100 he's always swearing. Once gavaskar said that he is very talented but he needs to control his foul language if he wants to reach greatness and that my friend is Sachin tendulker ..... take a bow
Age .. lol ... I have no clue where are they getting these world class players .... jesay koi factory outlet khol de hai India mei batsmen ki !
but no bowler...
