Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

And in walks MS Dhoni, at No. 4. He's not been the old Dhoni though. His strike-rate of 87.14 is the worst among all batsmen having faced 50 deliveries this season

Re: Indian Badminton Thread ...

Rankings are not reflective at all for players outside the top 30 or so.

And Nihal Sarin with his first GM norm

He will likely be the second fastest to reach GM status.

Re: Indian Badminton Thread ...

sameer, I was thinking more on the lines of Siril Verma and Lakshya Sen on the boy's side and Aakarshi Kashyap and Gayatri on the girls' side. As well as Satwik who has shown a lot of promise in the junior ranks. All our men have been ranked in the top 50 (even top 30 for some of them) for years now...

Re: Singapore Open Super Series 2017

Bit disappointing to see Srikanth lose to Sai Praneeth again (1-5 record now).

Sai is yet to show that he can beat 2 top 10-15 players in succession.

Re: P. V. Sindhu thread - Rio Olympics Silver medal winner

Agree with sameer. There is a clear top 2 in Tai-tzu Ying who is a dominant #1 and won her 5th successive tournament in Singapore (she skipped India SS) and Carolina Marin who is the current World and Olympic champion. Sindhu is in the next group with Sung-ji Hyun, Akane Yamaguchi and Ratchanok Inat...

Re: Indian Badminton Thread ...

We have a steady stream of young talent coming through in singles for both sexes.

It would be good to have some doubles players coming through as well.

Re: Singapore Open Super Series 2017

That said, for full disclosure, this did come in the absence of the big 3 in Lee Chong Wei, Lin Dan and Chen Long. True, also the top 2 Danes- Victor Axelsen and Jan O Jorgensen too were not there. So, top 5 players were not there here. Still, a wonderful achievement particularly considering our me...

Re: Singapore Open Super Series 2017

Excellent achievement this. That said, for full disclosure, this did come in the absence of the big 3 in Lee Chong Wei, Lin Dan and Chen Long. Srikanth of course has excellent previous pedigree with 2 super series wins and hopefully he can add a third tomorrow and start back on his path to a top 5 r...
