Re: Is the Blues SR win legit?

Re: WORLD TEST CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL- New Zealand vs India, The Rose Bowl, Southampton(moved from Lords because of COVID)

Just a tune up for the 5 wickets he's about to take. One thing I've always said about Kane Williamson. When he has an ordinary series against the likes of, say, England, he never does well in the next series. He tends to go out cheaply in his next at bat as well. Agreed... and usually the rest of t...

One thing I've always said about Ishant Sharma. Whenever he scores 2, he gets a 50. Never nicks out, gets caught on the boundary, runs someone out or any other myriad ways of losing his wicket.

One thing I will say about Ashwin is that he is not the sort of player to nick off / be caught / get LWB / caught on the boundary / get run out early.
