Lot of Buzz about who is the better batsmen between @DJBravo47 and #Santner and who should CSK play in Dubai. ⬇️ is my analysis. IMO, considering the iota of LHB options @ChennaiIPL has in their team, Santner can play a crucial role as a floater where as Bravo.. 1⃣
can fulfill the role of finisher. However, with Jadeja in the team, it is less likely that @ChennaiIPL think tank would like to play Santner and block one OS spot. Anyway, while comparing with @DJBravo47, Santner did have some impressive nos. -> 2⃣
He had better SR against Orthodox spin, and Legbreak bowlers when compared to that of Bravo. He also had an effective MO strike rate, and dot % to that of Bravo. Santner also had lesser dot % while facing fast bowlers. However, he had poor returns against MPs surprisingly.⬇️ 3⃣
Santner was better than Bravo in the MO phase where as the latter clearly light years ahead of Santner in the death overs as shown below. I have also compared Bravo's and Santner's stat to that Jadeja. While there is clear distinction between Jadeja and Bravo, ... 4⃣
Santner and Jadeja were neck to neck. Jadeja actually compliments Santner when it comes to countering bowling type. He has a better SR against MPs and offies when compared to that of Santner as shown ⬇️. he has better dot % against faster bowlers. However, Jadeja... 5⃣
is no way ahead of Bravo atm when we compare attacking against the various bowling type. Jadeja SR even-though less to Santner, has a good dot % in the MO. So, considering the various combinations and analysis as shown in this thread, CSK should start with DJ-RJ combo 6⃣
with RJ batting at no. 4, DJ at 5-6. If one fails, they have able replacement in Santner. 7⃣

Ind vs Eng, 2nd Test, Wankhade, Mumbai-2012.
England had given 4-0 drubbing to Ind back in 2011 at home that had spicy seaming wickets. Therefore, in response, Ind decided to prepare..1️⃣

💥The Forgotten Warriors EP: 4💥
Dec 29, 2010: Day 4: 8th over of the day. SA off to a cautious start. Kallis looks settled on 17(55). He hasn't let his guard down as yet since he knows that he is up against uncanny Indian pacer with "give it back" attitude. 1️⃣ ImageImage
After negotiating the first ball of the over, Kallis gears up for the next. The pacer completes his ritual of praying and with eyes filled with aggression, he charges in and as soon as he reaches closer to the crease, the dancer in him takes over his hands and... 2️⃣ ImageImageImage
With an undulating motion, and perfect seam position, he pitches it just short of a length. The ball bounces off as if it is assigned to a mission of taking @jacqueskallis75's head on its way. Kallis fends at it, ball smacks his gloves and off it goes to gully who holds it.⬇️3️⃣

In 2003 final, many experts said "India just did not arrive that day". 120 crore people in India were nervous. Can Zak redeem himself? Well, he did it in style by bamboozling Tharanga with the help of Sehwag's stunner. Zak first spell read as 4-3-2-1 3/n
