you are not too far...ishant...

shared by straight point on Saturday, June 27, 2009


the journey from being the leader of the pack to becoming buffet bowler has been strikingly quick...and if you won't stop to ponder...nobody can stop you from becoming another irfan pathan...

sp,
Ishant is getting his line and length all wrong,
but with Irfan it was more of a case of his technique gone wrong.
i think we all know the rise and fall of Irfan very well.
Ishant could change his line n length in the net match itself, but irfan's problems with his action, grip, his curly hair just don't seem to go away

prafs...you don't have to have exact problems to meet the same fate... :)

Prafs said...

right sp,
but one's problems are a lot easier than the other.

straight point said...

i hope so prafs...coz he is bowling buffet for quite a while now without apparent improvement...

i wonder why we are still carrying passengers like venkatesh and robing singh...

Superunknown said...

perfectly said. He is trying to ball a lot of short sstuff which isnt working well for him. and he is more of uni-dimensional now...

warning bells are out for him

straight point said...

indeed sam...warning bells are ringing very loud for him...if only he listen it in the heat of things...

A case of too much cricket spoiling what could have been

scorpicity said...

The cute part is that he has not even reached the heights of Irfan Pathan's "peak time", so far!!

His place in tests is well and good and it is time that somebody cracks the whip on his limited overs performances. He is young after all and there is time. Back to the drawing board.

cool welcome on this hot weather krish... :)

but this is gonna be norm as matches wont go less...one has to be smart enough to know when to play when to not...coz whenever you play not being at the top of the game you hurt your career more than when not playing...

this is the thing need to be understood by 'insecure' players...

straight point said...

yes...scorpy...that's why i said the decline has been strikingly quick...

lets see he utilises the break after this series till champions trophy for good use...

Ottayan said...

He is more concerned about the length of his hair than the length he should bowl.

straight point said...

hahaha ott...nice one...

funny but...true...

Naked Cricket said...

I was just glad to see him not play in the 2nd ODI. PK has more brains than the whole lotta them put together. Pick him over Ishant any day.

nc...somewhere i all this exercise i am not able to pick the line of thinking of selectors...i mean how they are looking to rotate bowlers...as we move on to match a day times...this is the issue they will have to address first...and foremost...
