AFG Test Debut | Ind v Afg | 14-18 June 2018 | Bangalore

Recommended Posts

i have always supported dhawan and i dont know how can people be blind enuf to consider murli Slow vijay as ahead of dhawan in tests, if dhawan bats for 20 minutes vijay will need to stay at wicket for 2 hours to score as many runs as dhawan scores in 20 minutes.

afghanisthan is already dissappointed...and now all batsman will come and hit their Spinners...and we will score 600 for 4 ..

It just goes to show that T20 is not real cricket,both these IPL superstars have no clue on how to bowl in a test match.

 

This is their first test match !!  You can judge these players after they play 5-10 tests.

 

IMO, they bowled okay. Quite a few boundary balls but also quite a few good balls. Been a bit unlucky too. On another day they could have ended up with 2-3 wickets with same bowling.

It was always going to be a double edge sword for AFG to play us as their first test match. Had they been at a better position, would have given them a lot of confidence. But looking at things, it will only hurt their confidence. Should have played against ZIM/BD for their first test match. They should have been more in control during the game.

their are more chances for vijay standing for 2 hrs in overseas then dhawan staying at crease for 20 min

abit unfair to critisize them from get go. This is their first test match man. Unfair! 

If BD can get 10 years and still play sh*t, atleast give these Afghani lads 1-2 years before talk sh*t.

Poor afgan lads..they should mot loose confidence this is their first ever test and they are playing against India at home..the challenge teams like Aus and Eng fail regularly. Still lots of positives the fast bowler wafadar for instace. And Young Rashid and Mujeeb have to learn to set the field plan during a spell..

Because Dhawan's overseas record is atrocious. The problem is can he even survive for 20 mins out there on a consistent basis? 

 

But yes Vijay is past it, India should drop him for an youngster.

Its a diff game. Getting wickets when batsman has to necessarily score runs it diff from getting the wicket of a batsman who is an expert in not giving his wicket away.

Feeling bad for Afg now.

 

Dhawan toying with their bowling.

 

They desperately need a couple of wickets in the next 20-30 runs.

 

Hope Dhawan gets out after his century and Vijay gets out after his half century. 

 

With football being flavor of the day lets say India today were to take on Germany who are no 1 ranked team what do you think would be the outcome.

How is Vijay looking good? He's looking like a tailender against 18 year old kid from Afghanistan. And how how did he go in SA?

He didn't do jack in SA for being an experienced player. He is past it and we can see that from his lack of intent to play shots. Atleast an youngster will learn from this much needed experience and he will get better for upcoming tours.

even dravid avg 29 in Sa , sooooo 

just becoz one series doesnt go in favour of u , doesnt mean ur past it 

lack of intent to play shots this ....? this is test cricket...u take ur time 

u cnt sacrifice country interest just to give a youngster exp 

 

and he played a knock of 25 in 100 balls in sa, which may look just 25 runs but it was a very important innings coz he saw of new ball and in test cricket these things matters

Does it even take much to out preform Vijay these days?

 

25 in 100 balls :biggrin:? You need to go look up his average from past 1-2 years instead of throwing around useless numbers.

if dhawan plays even 40 minutes , i would select him against a SLOW VJay ..his chances of playing for 40 minutes at least is very HIGH as his defence is also FAIR if not good, i bet that dhawan will be one of the highlights in england and will be our one of our best batsman along with kohli and kl rahul...kl rahul and dhawan are two most talented openers and Vijay is just a Hack...he should be dropped.

really ill see which youngster wud outperform him 

kya karu main avg aur number, we need him in tough conditions as simple as that . 

Rather then giving me useless logic go watch domestic cricket n find me a youngster who can do better then vijay in overseas

 

even if he scores 25, find me youngsters who ll score 20 in those conditions

wnt happen against jimmy n broad , hasnt happened in overseas apart from Nz tour  that shud kill ur argument right their

no chances of playing even 20 min against a moving ball is very low 

 

Vijay has scored runs in ENG n Aus in tough conditions, guys who scores runs their arent hacks

Vijay is not doing better in overseas. He was good some 3-4 years ago, but not anymore. He is easily replaceable with his current form and I don't see him improving much either because of his age.

Brother - u r here and I am here...very soon in england dhawan will score some runs at least and truth will be out.....

 

dhawan, kl rahul and virat are our best batsman even ahead of ROHIT sharma. Virat being the best and KL rahul and Dhawan are the no 2.

Hope Rahul gets hundred and permanently fixed to number 3slot .i want to kick out greatest HTB Pujara.:pray::pray::pray::pray::pray:

rahul will get a Hundred..i am confident but even pujara will come next and score another 100...

Pujara is a Solid defence player and in my books ahead of  Vijay and a must in test team..he has scored heaps of runs in 4 day and 5 day form and he does not want to get out, i feel if he bats Next ,he will remain not out till INDIA declares..he has the capacity to not get out and get stuck n frustrate bowlers giving them no hope to get him out..

how on earth is dhawan among ur best batsman in test cricket

to be honest in test cricket as of now pujara , rahane n vijay are ahead of KL. 

When it comes to overseas rahane is as good as anyone

When it comes to subcontinet pujara is a beast

And now rain ,whose brilliant idea was to play in Bangalore this time of the year.

most parts of India are not playable at this time of the year. south has monsoon and north has 40 plus degrees.  Bangalore is the best place to play cricket at this time of the year. Rain is patchy and temperature is fine.
