Where’s Malinga the swinger gone?! What a bowler. I’m sure he quit test cricket in his 20s to play in this nonsense!

Sharma and KL the best opening pair in T20 cricket bar none. KL 50 in 18 balls.

Another contest win toss and a thrashing happens.

Oh do come on, you beat a despondent Scotland who even Namibia beat. Nothing to be proud of and doesn't prove anything re winning the toss or claiming Sharma and KL are the best opening pair. In fact, I'd go as far to suggest that it's easy to be good against Scotland but when the chips were down against the big boys, they failed miserably.

However, your post has more than a hint of :fishing: about it and you know you'd get us all out biting :ROFLMAO:

I fancy an Afghanistan upset against New Zealand. Would open the door for India who have the advantage of knowing what is required when they play Namibia on Monday.

I am hoping that Mujeeb is playing for Afghanistan. A huge talent.

When was the last time Kohli scored a hundred in any format?

Ha f*** me just seen this. You really are obsessed. Can you tell me when was the last time an English cricket player at international level that has over 70 centuries? Actually let me make it easier for you over 50.

Why don't you just answer the man's question? 2019 if you weren't aware. So yes, he's scored more centuries, but his form isn't great, is it?

I am very aware. So is the poster. But he is obsessed. Let’s say the man that is the best worlds batsman in all
formats has had a changed of lifestyle being a father for the first time. His priorities in life MAYBE isn’t the same. Now YOU tell me or answer me when was the last time an English batsmen has scored over (I’m making it easy for you here) 50
International centuries.

Why not just answer the question. Don't attack the player.

They haven't, Root is on 39.

Now tell me, when was the last Indian bowler to take more than 630 wickets?

You're always very aggressive to attack others, I just don't get it. Kohli's form is terrible, surely someone so clued up on the statistics can see that?

f*** me are talking about batsmen and you are w***ing which Indian bowler last got 630 wickets. Let me tell you none now that you asked.

Did you read above - Virat form terrible. How many 50s has he got in the last 2 years in all formats couple with covid and his change in life style.

Just proving that you can ask anything of someone else to try and get the upper hand, as you did as opposed to just answering the original question.

Thanks for your time.

Now I know why I put certain people on ignore.

I was willing to give them a second chance, but until the T20 WC is over it's :wave:

So if @super J wanted to know when Kolhi last scored a century just Google it and as this is a T20 thread my man Kolhi is averaging nearly 75 in T20 in 2021 (a man so out of form right) and I won’t reply further as @Banana not for the first time will note it is past 9pm (actually made me laugh) and I don’t want @TW3Bee ignoring me AGAIN HA HA.

I dont Afghanistan are sh*t. They didnt win a game at the 2019 world cup and have been poor against the big teams here.

Feel for Jason Roy. Not sure what England will do - Bairstow to open and Billings in at 7? Bairstow not in great nick.

Would have thought so. But they might go with Malan.

I think Bairstow would benefit from opening personally.

Fair enough. There’s an unbearable Indian fan that makes everyone hate India (at cricket) on the gpg. Can’t remember his name.
