2023.03.25 05:19 LikeToBreed 27 M4F #Germany / Europe / Anywhere - Looking for a woman to breed and impregnate her as many times as possible

Wanting to impregnate a woman for real so badly, the breeding kink has been driving me crazy and all i want is to make it happen for real and just please this urge to become a breeding bull.
No drama, no roleplay, no nonsense or wasting time. All want is to find someone like minded and enjoy the breeding and lactation kink together.
I am not able to travel long distances at the moment but can host if needed. I would be willing to help by splitting up costs or covering things when you would travel to me.
No Age or location preference either. It doesn't matter where you are from or how old you are as long as you could travel in the foreseeable future. Bonus points if you are also working out.
My three most dominant kinks are: impregnation, sex during the pregnancy, lactation Other kinks/fantasies i have are: hucow, anr, abf, mommy stuff, breastfeeding, milking, incest and inbreeding (in porn)
When thinking about the breeding kink i see myself as a breeding bull making sure the fertile womb of my breeding mare is always full of my fertile sperm. I absolutely love everything around the breeding kink and don't have any limits when it comes down to that. I love embracing the primal instincts and the urge to procreate and impregnate a woman. Ideally you would see yourself like a broodmare and embrace the breeding kink just like me and want to have passionate impregnation sex as much as possible.
I am tall, have blue eyes, blonde hair, wear glasses and a beard together with a dad bod but very fit and healthy, workout 5-6 times a week and eat clean. My sperm fertility is above the average and i can easily cum multiple times a day. I also have a crazy high libido. Can also provide health certificates to proof my great fertility.
Please introduce yourself properly and tell me more about you as a person, your kinks and limits as well as your plans with the breeding kink and what the breeding kink entails from your point of view.

2023.03.25 05:18 DeathTaxesnMoreDeath 25 [M4F] EST/Anywhere - Seeking Serious Relationship, Mindmates > Soulmates?

Life is short, why not suffer through it together?
I'll admit, I'm a bit of an odd one. I enjoy deep conversations more than anything, well, except maybe competition. I care way more about how someone thinks rather than how they look. Clear, honest communication is also very important. Why cover up your actual meaning and create an infinite web of assumptions?
As far as hobbies go, I play a decent of games and read quite a bit. (What are your top 3 books?) I also enjoy movies, YouTube/Twitch and music. (Favorite band currently is The Warning)
I'm a Christian but I don't buy into the organized religion side of things very much. A lot of denominations or specific leaders seem to misinterpret the bible, even if well intentioned, causing a lot of the bad PR Christianity has gotten recently. Politics wise, I'm mostly libertarian and generally think the both main parties in the US are going a bit crazy.
That brings me to why I'm giving this subreddit a try. For a long time I was never really been interested in dating but I'm realizing the joys are probably worth the potential pains. I figured, why not give it a shot and maybe the right person will come along? I should also make it clear that I'm not looking for anything causal. What's the point in investing trust in someone if it's not for the long haul?
This post is purposely a bit vague with the intent of providing lots of good conversation starters. Any and all questions are welcome! I enjoy debating/discussing topics from all sides so fire away.

To save us both time, here are a few general things I'm looking for: (Not necessarily deal breakers)
-Introverted or comfortable with not being around people all the time.
-Same core moral beliefs.
-Not overly sensitive or emotional. (I can be blunt at times)
-Intelligent and open minded.

Extra bonuses:
-The Wandering Inn
-Into Fitness

Who knows what the future holds but looking forward to hearing from you!

2023.03.25 05:18 realitybites1456 The girl I truly liked rejected me. I feel so hopeless.

Throwaway. We are both 22 (I'm the male).
I am frequently told I am physically attractive. I'm tall, I work out and always work on myself. I try to always be the life of the party when possible, yet also have a genuine side to me. I care about others and I'm extremely loyal. I always talk to the guy who is in the corner by himself or to the person who looks shy because I like to involve everyone. It's just who I am and what I've strived to become. I only say this stuff because I'm confused about what I do wrong in life.
I met this girl a couple of months ago. We are both classmates and are in the same major; we also graduate in May. She is amazing, and I have not liked anyone like this in a long time. She was in a LTR when I first met her, but she eventually broke up with her boyfriend. We always hit it off when we talk and it seems like we have everything in common. That "spark" you feel when you click with someone was there completely. I played everything extremely slow because she had just gotten out of a relationship. I always saw her out at bars, parties, etc., and we would always have a great time together. Everything about her felt right; she is beautiful, we will be doing the same job, and our personalities are mirrors of each other.
One night while out, we were all out at a bar having a good time when it happened - we hooked up. I felt like that was the turning point. I could feel romance on both ends and I, for the first time in a while, had hope for someone and something to exist. She basically expressed how much she liked me and the vibe we had with each other. I was super excited for the future.
Soon after, she becomes distant. I could feel that something was wrong. I eventually just confess that I like her and want to take her on a date, and she responds that she "thinks [I'm] awesome" but "doesn't think [she's] in a good mental state right now." It was so depressing and I've been gutted.
I'm just so tired of not knowing what to look for in my love life. I find someone who is objectively for me and also likes me (at least physically), yet I still get rejected. I don't even know how its possible anymore. This has been a recurring theme, where a girl seems to like me, I like her, yet I get rejected and get the whole "you're such a great guy" schtick. I can't do it anymore.
I'm just really getting tired of this feeling. I feel so hopeless and I don't feel like myself anymore. I don't even know how she wouldn't want to give it a shot, how can she move on so fast? Just brutal.

2023.03.25 05:17 DriverDriver6699 With Spring here be on the lookout for 40 packs !

If this is your first Spring/Summer driving for Spark just a word of warning : People order silly amounts of water, juice, pop, and just about any other liquid. I'm talking sometimes 1000 lbs. worth of liquid. Check each order carefully before accepting!
Also, don't be a fool. Don't sell yourself short. Don't hurt yourself or destroy your vehicles suspension . I personally don't do over (3) 40 packs unless there is a BIG tip. All it takes is one misstep to destroy a ligament so be careful!

2023.03.25 05:16 Dr_Piano_Hands I miss you...

I know we said our goodbyes. I know we had our closure. I know that what we had is gone. But I wish more than anything that this wasn't the case. I wish I could have fixed all the problems that I had hidden from view. That I hadn't noticed. That ate away at you until it was too late. I wish I could wake up from this dream to have you wrapped in my arms, your face a mere inch from mine, those beautiful eyes of yours staring back at me.
I thought I was ok. That I'd accepted what was. But I can't keep lying to myself. I'm struggling. Everything I do leads back to you. Remembering what we had. Imagining what could have been. There's so much.
I tried to move on. I tried to understand. But I can't. I would give anything to have you here even for 1 second more. There was so much I had planned. So much we had planned. So many dreams I had about what was to come. I thought I'd finally made it. I thought I was on the way to achieving the lift I'd always dreamed of. The slightest glimpse of us.
I miss your smile. I miss lying next to you. I miss your craziness. I miss your weird superstitions. I miss your body. I miss your touch. I miss how strong I felt whenever you were in the room. I miss the dreams I had of our future. I miss the love I had for you. The love that I can't let go of. The love that had blinded me from how you felt. I miss having you there at the end of each day. I miss every little moment. I miss you so much.
I hope you find the person you deserve. A better one than me. I hope you achieve the life that is out there waiting for you. You will always be a part of me. Everything you did for me. I will always be grateful for the time you gave me. The love you had that I didn't think I deserved. The love that I pushed away without realising.
The moments I wasted will always be lost. I just wish you'd given me the chance to get a few of them back. I wish I could hold you in my arms one last time. I wish I'd known how far you'd fallen so I could have pulled you back up. But now you can rise. Reach the heights I know you can. The life I wish we could have shared.

But I'll miss you.

2023.03.25 05:16 Toxic_Gerbil951 Tyler1 in EUW is amazing

To clarify I've been on NA server since 2019, and I haven't played on any other server but from the looks of it EUW is much worse from how others say it is.
That being said, it is completely understandable how LOLTYLER1 - also know as T1, BIG TONKA T, or TT - got through EUW with such yawning ease cruising at 200 LP masters right now, which is supposed to be when the "EU Talent" start to shine.
Watching his streams everyone seems to speak perfect English which makes since because English is THE BEST LANGUAGE and even if they don't speak English they know the insults, which is a given for any language let's be honest. However, the insults are kinda dull and they can only default to calling him short (which has been disproven multiple times) and bald (which they are coping because they can't grow a handsome head of hair and a girthy beard like his).
After dissing EUW for about a week now, more and more players are inting his games cuz they never wanna see a brotha succeed. Barely a week into the challenge, he already had players right-click enemy nexus all game TWICE, with a syndra and a yi both solely having about 50 DEATHS in a single game. Now, in "Master tier elo," players are soft inting him by pretending to have no macro, refusing to play correctly (like just auto), or doing something stupid like locking in champs for the first time in ranked... but from the looks of their match history, they probably aren't pretending.
My question pretty much comes down to: is this really a fair challenge? I mean the way he constantly has to edge out a win by carrying nearly ever game he pours his heart into and the fact that half of the server is queueing up to make sure he won't hit challenger? To any other League streamer, it would be a death wish to degrade your competition the moment you go into their turf, but for T1, this is just another Monday.
LOLTYLER1 is a 5 role challenger player on NA, ALL ON STREAM. He is THE FACE of League of Legends. It was a no brainer that Tyler1 of all players would DOMINATE THE RIFT the moment he dropped in EUW, hitting nearly 300 lp in damn near a week. People who sleep on T1 are complete fools, as they wish they can fathom his vast ocean of knowledge for this game. T1's champion pool is barely near meta (according to as of 13.6), but the greatest of all time knows his limits, and he knows when he can break them.
Right now, if you think you can even reach masters "playing like him," then go ahead, make a brand new account, and see if you can even get past platinum. discount code: alpha

2023.03.25 05:15 Own-Aerie-8743 Spoiler Lucifer's humour hits so differently I can't laugh

Everytime he makes a joke it brings up memories of his non consensual pet play with Crowley. Why? I don't really know? Maybe it's because it is Lucifer's sense of humour and it triggers his other "sense of humour" like hallucination with Sam and that disturbing moment with Crowley and I just can't laugh
I wince like it's not a trigger trigger. Like it's not PTSD or anything like that. But I have no idea what it's called? What is the word where everytime a character opens their mouth or shows up on screen it triggers a memory of something else they did, even though it might be unrelated to what they said in the present moment that makes you feel bad about the character being on the screen? For me I feel genuinely disturbed whenever Crowley is in the same room as Lucifer. Yup even when Lucifer was trapped in chains like my heart is screaming Crowley run! Don't let your trauma be your downfall
I get it though. Trauma of the nature Lucifer gave Crowley especially for someone with Crowley's childhood meant Crowley was thinking emotionally and so my opinion of Crowley never diminished. In real life many who went through such a thing would be understandably traumatized from the experience
8x23 is also evidence that when Crowley gets desperate he gets careless. Any kind of negative emotion from anger to fear is a huge weak spot for him. Like in 8x23 his rush to hurry up and get the demon tablet from Dean and Sam because of his fear meant he forgot to have leverage in case of emergency, such as get his demons ready to kill Jody if Dean and Sam tried anything that isn't part of the deal. With extra failsafes like voice only, non descript location to account for Castiel's teleportation ability
Season 5 Crowley was less scared. Yes he yelled about how such and such ate his tailor. But his over dramatization of his life being in danger meant Crowley still had his sense of humour in tact. He's dramatized it so much that he doesn't really take it seriously and that's why in season 5 he is more clearheaded
Same with season 7 he is clear headed
Season 6 sometimes as well. It did fluctuate from Crowley being calm to Crowley being agitated
Season 9 he was pretty clearheaded when he wasn't drunk on human blood
I haven't seen season 10 and 11 that recently but he was agitated from his mother and then later the disturbing non consensual pet play
Sorry to any Lucifer fans

2023.03.25 05:15 appleparkfive I feel like the "zombie chords" mentality is harming a lot of young musicians

So if you look online, from Youtube to TikTok, you'll see people talking about "zombie chords". Basically when people say that songs are boring because it's just G, C, D, Em, and basic chords. I think it stemmed from one video, but then spread around as a weird mentality over the past few years.
I've seen people say that these chords "topped out" in the 60s with people like The Beatles and the folk scene. These very, very essential and universal tools to all of songwriting.
And these videos have the same remedy: Use maj7 chords and more exotic chords.
I think this is where things get weird. Because they never really say "Add in a maj7 or a more unusual chord to make an interesting dynamic". Because that's great advice. It's more the ones that suggest using a majority of more elaborate chords for your works in general.
I've noticed a lot of music with more elaborate chords the past couple of years, and I wonder if this is part of that mentality. But I feel like it's a very flawed way of looking at music in general.
You can use two very basic chords and make great songs. I mean take 505 by Arctic Monkeys. That's just two chords over and over, with repeating and changing things going around them.
And I mean you can do plenty with just a 5th and an octave. Power chords have worked wonders for plenty of people, last time I checked.
I'm all for throwing in a curveball, of course. Plenty of artists do that to make a good idea into a great idea. But the notion of these chords being "zombie" chords, some walking dead zombie chords, is pretty ridiculous. There's a similar issue with those "chord packs" that get plenty of ridicule as well. They kind of work with a similar premise that these are the real, professional chords.
To anyone in here making music, use those basic chords! Don't shy away from them. Use the A, D, Bm, and have a blast making great distinct music. Don't let some youtube tutorials and theory essay videos tell you otherwise. Your songs won't sound boring if you can offer something interesting to lay on top of them.
I just think it's such a weird way to look at it. I can't be the only one, right?

2023.03.25 05:15 drowning35789 ZEFs do have right to life

PL constantly claim that ZEFs don't have right to life and say that they deserve that right when in reality they do. Even in pro choice states they do have right to life.
They have right to life as no third party is allowed to kill. If a random person stabs a pregnant woman and ends up killing the ZEF, that person will still be charged for murder.
What PL don't realise is that having the right to life dosen't include right to use another person's body just like any born person. Everyone has right to life but not at the expense of your bodily autonomy. If the pregnant woman aborts, it's only self defence. If any born person attaches to your body and sucks on your nutrition and causes you many health problems that could even last for life, you do have the right to kill them for it.
Death dosen't have to be a threat for self defence even for severe harm it can be considered self defence. A ZEF attaches to the body of the woman and sucks out her nutrition and causes many health problems and rips her genitals out. If a born person did this, killing them is only self defence.

2023.03.25 05:15 Educational-Tea-6572 I'm glad Din... (s3 spoilers)

... rejoined the Tribe.
Of course, while I'm writing this, War's "Why Can't We Be Friends?" is stuck in my head - which should give some indication where I'm going with this.
Din has always been uniquely poised to be one of the crucial factors in convincing all Mandalorians to reunite with a common goal, and his adherence to his personal beliefs and desire to rejoin the Tribe while still being tolerant of others may be the key to bringing the (Children of) the Watch back from their generations-long exile.
From as early on as season 1, Din was established as the kind of guy who approaches everyone - including those of differing beliefs - with a "you do you" attitude. As long as you're not attacking him, you're just fine in Din's book. (Even bounties are guaranteed being taken in alive if they don't fight back - the bounty part is just business.)
Come season 2, Din encounters not only people of widely different cultures and backgrounds such as he has had dealings with for years, but also people who claim to be Mandalorian yet have different beliefs. Not only does he eventually accept them as fellow Mandalorians (after an initial period of shock), he aids them in several missions.
His acceptance of others hasn't changed. In season 3, his goal is to reunite with his Tribe yet he still goes to Bo Katan with the initial offer of joining her in retaking Mandalore. He primarily wanted to get to the Living Waters, true, but he was still willing to fight alongside her in return.
I still hope Din eventually decides for himself that he can remove his helmet and still follow the Creed, but I also hope the show doesn't make the Children of the Watch members who still believe in the helmet rule suddenly have to conform to an expectation of removing their helmet in order to be accepted as part of Mandalorian society again. I think both those who are part of the Watch and those who are not will have to learn to work together and accept each other without slinging insults/labels of "cult" or "apostate," or either group expecting the other to conform to their way.
After decades (if not centuries) of Mandalorians fighting each other, which is what led to Mandalore being ripped apart even before the Empire took over, the people NEED someone like Din, who is part of an "other" group while still being tolerant and accepting of others, to emerge in some kind of leadership capacity - even if only to set an example for Bo Katan.
Looking forward to seeing where this storyline goes!

2023.03.25 05:14 milkev Should the enemies in my game have armor or damage mitigation?

I started thinking about this while working on what stats some of my enemies might have, and haven't been able to find much online about this particular question. Many games give enemies armor, many games don't, but a lot of the time its not particularly obvious that they have any form of armor or damage mitigation, or it is so ineffective that it mine as well not be there.
For my game in particular, the player can see their damage numbers when they hit the enemy, but cannot see the enemies max hp or remaining hp. So players would instantly have feedback if the enemy has high defense, or is simply a much higher level than they can currently handle. The power level feedback would be of great use to the player, however if overused, an enemy that is weak but has extraordinarily high defense might be ignored and seen as 'too strong' after only being attacked once or twice. This is one particular trope with armor that I enjoy, so I would need another way to display this but have no idea on how I would. Or maybe its just not something that would be possible with an armor system in this context.
If I do add armor... how would I even choose how it should work? I see two main categories; Flat reduction (Ex: enemy has 10% DR) and Comparative Reduction (Reduction amount takes difference between damage and armor into account). The flat reduction is simple and used a fair bit, but comparative reduction can be interesting and would make more sense for an rpg-like game. However with my game, I plan to have different 'styles' of weapons, such as fast hitting low damage, and slow shooting high damage weapons. A comparative reduction could impact fast hitting weapons far more than slow hitting ones. On the surface it seems hard to keep a balance with that, especially when levels come into play. One of the big things I wanted in particular from comparative armor is stat gaps, for instance if you were to fight something high above your level, you might do low damage, or none at all, but if you were to fight something below your level, armor might barely be a consideration anymore. I'm personally thinking a mix of flat DR based on a stat, and comparative DR based on difference in stats, would be the most effective solution for this? So when armor and damage are around similar levels, comparative wouldn't matter as much/if at all and the flat DR would be the most important, but when a stat gap comes into play, comparative could override the flat DR.
What is the difference between just adding more hp instead of adding defense to an enemy? For instance instead of an enemy having a 50% DR, they could just have 2x the amount of hp for the same difficulty. The player would also get the bonus satisfaction of dealing '2x' aka normal damage, instead of getting their damage numbers cut in half. Base max HP would be easier to scale with levels than scaling both max HP and armor. I could just apply the comparative DR separately based on general levels or stat values. That could be more complicated on its own though, so I don't know if that would even save any effort on my part. The more important part is what the player feels in response to having their damage reduced though.
I know I've 'answered' a lot of my own questions here (why I'm marking this as discussion), but I am curious on what other peoples opinions are on this, and if there is anything I've missed. I'm also aware this is highly targeted towards my own game, but I am also curious what what people think about enemies having armor in their own games, or games that they play.

i feel diablo immortal was made as a test for this live service bullshit to see other assholes run around in my game and murder things around me, and hell, even for me because he got to the enemy half a second sooner. thats not diablo. youre supposed to be this lone hero saving the world, not a lone hero that matchmaked with god know how many others that drop my fps when i load into fucking town because i HAVE to be online like fucking diablo 3. thats WoW. thats diablo immortal. this isnt diablo. this is a contrived version of the best pc rpg game ever made. did they make d2r to keep the actual fans of the name "happy" when this pile of shit came out because they knew we would see through the veil of the beta? compare the combat of this, to immortal. compare the "open world" to immortal. compare the loot to d3/immortal. diablo died after LoD came out. fuck you blizzard, dont know why i expected more, shame on me, im going back to d2r to wash this taste of shemgma out my fucking mouth.

2023.03.25 05:13 amanev95 Amex needs a Co-Working Space Partner 4 business

Hey fellow travelers and Amex users!
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the complimentary snacks, drinks, and comfortable seating that come with the lounge access, but I can't help but feel that Amex could do even more for us frequent business travellers. As someone who is constantly on the move for work, I appreciate the escape that airport lounges provide from the hustle and bustle of the airport terminals. But, I can't help but notice that these lounges often lack the dedicated workspace that we, as business travelers, need to remain productive between flights or short term city stays.
This brings me to my main point: Amex should partner with a co-working space provider to offer cardholders access to professional workspaces while on the go. This collaboration would be a game-changer for business travelers like us. Imagine being able to walk into a fully-equipped office space with reliable Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, and all the necessary amenities to get some serious work done while waiting for your next flight or visiting another city. Not only would this add even more value to Amex's current offerings, but it would also elevate the brand as a leader in catering to the needs of the modern business traveler. It's a win-win situation: cardholders get a much-needed professional workspace, and Amex further solidifies its reputation as a go-to brand for those who travel for work.
Let's get a discussion going and see if we can make our collective voice heard!
Safe travels and productive work sessions to all!

2023.03.25 05:13 NattyGannStann RHOM Peacock

I have searched the sub because I am embarrassed to ask...but are the Peacock episode edits different than the ones the boys are recapping?? I recently put it together that even though I don't have cable I can watch Peacock for free (broke as a joke) with my Xfinity *you'll always be Comcast to me internet account. I'm trying to listen to the recaps as I go through the current RHOM season and the guys will talk about stuff that hasn't happened yet as they do scene by scene recaps and I am already easily confused. Is this a thing - and why - or should I call my neurologist and book her next appointment? Lmk, depending on your answer this may be time sensitive

Recap of 2022

Finishing Position: 8th
Played: 14, Won: 6, Lost: 8
2022 was a topsy-turvy ride for SRH, to say the least, and it began way before the actual tournament started. They were so gung-ho about building a team around Captain Williamson that they eventually let go off Rashid Khan: one of the best T20 players in the world. Then they allegedly ignored their pre-auction plans at the time of actual bidding. In the tournament, they started with two embarrassing losses but went on to win the next 5 matches convincingly. Next, they were delivered a finisher by Rashid Khan which kickstarted a 5-match losing streak. Though his picks (Abhishek, Markram, Tripathi) did well, Williamson himself struggled for form the entire season weighing the team down.

Top Wicket Taker Umran Malik 22 wickets

Preface to 2023

  • Talk of the Town
To Hyderabad fans, the upcoming season feels like a new sunrise. After five consecutive seasons of playoffs finish, the last two years felt like a nightmare to them. This time though, the chatter in the build up to the tournament is not of mismanagement, but of new beginnings. While it is - in many ways - a new look team altogether, there are three protagonists that are being talked about the most. First is Aiden Markram: the new captain who recently led SRH's sister team to triumph in the SA20. Second is the West Indies all time great Brain Lara: team's head coach this year and the mastermind under whose direction the new look side was assembled. Third is the much talked about English prodigy Harry Brook: for whom SRH broke a bank at the auctions. Them supported by a plethora of fresh domestic faces give the Orange ArmyTM the hopes of sunshine this season.

  • Jersey/Kit for the Season
Enthusiasts of cricket fashion breathed a collective sigh of relief as they saw that SRH are reverting to black trousers and won't be wearing the eyesore of orange pants they wore last year.

Having said that, the word on the street is that their training jersey looks better than their playing kit.

These two are also probably talking about how good this training shirt looks

  • Fixtures for the Season
The Orange ArmyTM kicks off their season with an afternoon game against RR on Sunday, April 2nd. They play RR, MI, KKR, DC and LSG twice this season. Their only games against GT and CSK are away matches, while their only fixtures against the two "red and gold" teams - PBKS and RCB - are home games.

  • Expected Conditions at Home Ground
The Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket stadium has always given memorable matches. From Sachin's 175 while chasing 350 against Australia in an ODI to Kohli giving it back to poor Kesrick Williams. From IPL's best bowling figures ever (Alzarri Joseph's 6-12) to the famous MI vs CSK final in 2019. This ground has a knack of producing memorable moments.
Though, conditions very much depends on what kind of wicket is offered on a given day, generally you'd find batting belters here. The pitches do tend to slow down towards the back of the season assisting a little bit spin. In the 7 home games SRH played here in 2019, they breached 200 three times. Funny enough, that's the same number of times teams were skittled out for a sub 120 score here that season.

  • Updated Squad
Aiden Markram✈️ (captain), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Agarwal, Washington Sundar, Rahul Tripathi, Harry Brook✈️, Umran Malik, Heinrich Klaasen✈️, Anmolpreet Singh, Adil Rashid✈️, Akeal Hosein✈️, Upendra Yadav, Sanvir Singh, Samarth Vyas, Vivrant Sharma, Mayank Markande, Abdul Samad, Glenn Phillips✈️, Abhishek Sharma, Marco Jansen✈️, Fazalhaq Farooqi✈️, Kartik Tyagi, T Natarajan, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Mayank Dagar.

Likely First Choice XI: 1. Abhishek Sharma 2. Mayank Agrawal 3. Rahul Tripathi 4. Aiden Markram✈️ (c) 5. Harry Brook✈️ 6. Heinrich Klassen✈️ (wk) 7.Washington Sundar 8. Adil Rashid✈️ 9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar 10. Umran Malik 11. Kartik Tyagi/T Natarajan IP Options: Sanvir Singh, Abdul Samad, Vivrant Sharma(Note: Impact player cannot be an overseas player if there are already 4 overseas players in the playing XI)

  • Major Strengths
(i) A well-balanced squad: On paper, SRH seem to have all bases covered. A decent set of openers, a drool-worthy middle order, able finishers and a formidable bowling attack - they seem to check all boxes. Moreover, the crop they've garnered this year has good mix of youth and experience. They seemed to have made prudent bids for each role rather than splurging their purse on a couple of names with big reputation.
(ii) Variety and experience in bowling: A certified IPL legend (Bhuvneshwar Kumar); An express pace speedster (Umran), A 2-metre left armer who can swing it (Jansen), miserly finger spinners (Sundar & Akeal), wily ol' leggie (Rashid) and a more than decent support cast (Tyagi, Farooqi, Natarajan, Markande and others). What more do you want?

(iii)The engine in the middle: The stand out feature that the fans are, perhaps, most thrilled about is the middle order. Tripathi, Markram, Brook and Klassen form a very potent line up and each of those men have individually grown leaps and bounds in stature in the last one year. Furthermore, SRH have Philips, Samad and couple other impressive local cricketers as backups. And in case you feel the lack of a left hander among these is an issue, remember Sundar can be floated in the order as per convenience.

  • Weaknesses
(i) The Injury Chronicles: Mayank Markande missed the Irani Cup due to a finger injury, while Natarajan has been out of action since October 2022. Although, there are no other major reports of injuries from the camp, the dubious track record of Tyagi, Bhuvneshwar, Philips and Sundar is well known. Fans would hope that the players can stay fit and last the season so that SRH's chances stay ripe.
(ii) Undersupply of characters proven in the IPL: As impressive as Umran, Abhishek and Markram were last year, in all fairness, they've all had just one good season in the IPL. Klassen, Rashid and Philips have a combined IPL experience of only 11 matches in which their numbers are appalling. While Brook has been setting the world on fire, he's yet to play a match in India. Adjusting to conditions is one thing, coping with the cutthroat pressure the IPL brings is another challenge these blokes will have to overcome.

Game Plan: Possible Punts

  • Starting Stutters
The upcoming ODIs against Netherlands are a must win for South Africa with regards to qualifications for the 2023 World Cup. Having already been shocked by Netherlands last year, SA don't want to take any chances and have hence decided to go with a full strength squad. This means Jansen, Klassen and captain Markram won't be available for the Orange ArmyTM's opening fixture. While it's just one game, a bad start can put you in a bit of rut. In a tournament where everybody talks of "momentum", SRH would want other players to stand up and get them off to a winning start. Upendra Yadav and Glenn Philips would be likely to take the place of the absentees while the toss up for captaincy could be between Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mayank Agarwal.

  • Mayank and other local lads
By this time last year, Mayank Agarwal was on the top of the world. He was a regular in the Test side and was being paid ₹14 crore to captain an IPL team. But he has come tumbling down a few steps. No more in the Indian team, his franchise released him and though SRH picked him up, he's getting less than 60% of his last year's salary. He'd have a point to prove.
So would Anmolpreet Singh who was with the Mumbai Indians since 2019 but got only 3 matches in 4 years. Other than them, the franchise also picked a bunch of rookie domestic players whom they would want to put their long term investment in. Vivrant Sharma: their latest acquisition from J&K; Sanvir Singh: Punjab finisher who strikes at 186 in T20s and Samarth Vyas, who this season became just the fifth batter to score a double century in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, would be the favourites.

  • The Klassen Question
Wicketkeeper-batter Heinrich Klassen has been in red hot form. Whilst his brisk, match-winning hundred against WI made headlines, it didn't come out of the blue. Before this, Klassen had a stellar season of SA20 amassing 350+ runs at an average of 60 and strike rate of 164. In his last match of the season Klassen scored a 43-ball century and helped his team post a score of 254 in 20 overs.
With Tripathi, Markram and Brook/Philips in the side, Klassen is likely to be given the finisher's role batting at 6: which he has been successful with on a few occasions in the past. However, Klassen was regularly batting at 3 in the SA20. Given the kind of impact he can have and Markram and Brook's credibility in playing the finisher's role, SRH could - at some point in the tournament - promote Klassen up the order and ask him to have a whack. Last time a franchise promoted a keeper-batter-finisher up top, it became a milestone moment.

Share this with SRH fans you know and feel free to express your thoughts in the comments. Stay Tuned for Part 5: Rajasthan Royals (RCB Preview has been pushed back since their jersey launch is happening on 26th March)
