Dinesh Karthik scored 21 runs (0,20 & 1,0)  in 4 innings this series.

 

Rishabh Pant is unbeaten on 13 in his first innings. :cheer:Hope he will cross Karthik's 21 runs in this innings itself.

 

 

 

 

Already surpassed KKD. Batting on 22.

Pant is a leg side hack, won't stand chance against top class bowling.

Average player who hacks everything on leg side.. Long way to 2 go, might just disappear like many hyped players before him lol. Don't even bother

Pros : He can hack it in IPL quite a lot. Cons : He cant hack it outside where it swings.

And Kedar,Iyer and Manish can handle 140s how? Raina even with his tummy can bat and field better than these three.

Pant couldn't put his bat against lallu A team bowlers and was batting like a deer infront of headlights against England in the same match when a pot-bellied Raina smoked them.Sure that leg-side slogger will bat better than Raina.First let him score some good runs against a decent A team lineup and then we will take about whether he is good enough for international cricket.

Pant is a hack. I want him to be successful but his few appearances in international matches gives no confidence. He was struggling against mighty SL bowlers in Nidahas trophy. Him succeeding in England will be close to a miracle and world cup is no place for trial and error. Pandey, though selfish has shown the best temperament among all youngsters. I might also consider Rayudu at no. 5

We will know soon.

Rkt was joking when he made that comment during Ipl but today so far he looked good during his stay hopefully he makes a good score and helps India to reach 400 along with Ravi Ashwin.

Fearless batting today but he looked a bit loose outside off. Hope he does well tomorrow when batting conditions will be tougher with the dark clouds around. Seriously why is Dhoni still playing white ball cricket?

A batsman would usually get off the mark in Test cricket with a quick single, but in Rishabh Pant’s case, it was slightly different. On the wicketkeeper-batsman’s second delivery on Test debut against England, Pant came dancing down the track and struck the ball over the straight boundary off Adil Rashid’s bowling.

Not expecting any miracles from him,it's not even certain whether he ll play the next test,I am happy he is trying to play his game,which I think Pandya can take a cue from.Pandya has played some top on drives in the series so far but somehow I feel he has also started believing in this madness he is a premier batsman in this side,which he can never be.

 

One thing is for sure 1st class stats do tell us something about a player,Pandya has no experience of building an innings or playing a big innings and here he is trying to learn all that playing test cricket.The joke is on us.

 

Pant if he gets a consistent run,I am pretty sure will be more fruitful because he actually knows a thing or two about scoring tons.

Can only imagine the hate he would have had it gone horribly wrong. Selectors would declare him to be not fit for internationals as of now based on just one innings. Dhoni's fboys would be cheerful more than dhoni doing lunges for them.

It's funny how since it came off its brave.

It seemed pretty risk free.

If not six, it would have been four.

This is closer to his natural game.

Broad or andu pe nahi risk liya...

 

But you are right in general.

Chal gaya to taaliyan.:congrats:

Nahi chala to gaalian!!!:motz:

And most important thing was that he read googly early.

 

If you don't read the ball, then doesn't matter what shot you play.

yes, Pandya batted to defensively. He needs to play his normal game and lunging forward every ball, not premeditate, rather play the ball.  In England, batting on backfoot and late is the mantra.

But he has already done that in internationals though against srl and bd, still they are better than first class performance.

Looked more at ease batting. Don’t know why he was sent behind Panduboy...

India desperately needs atleast one more left hand batsman in the order. Someone like Gill...

The left right combo does disturbs the bowlers line & length...

England bowlers have been rewarded by sticking to the set line & length.

Whereas our bowlers bowl all over the place...

Playing back is premeditated 

In England you try to play forward as much as you can , why do you think Kohli was batting outside his crease ?

Surpassed Karthik's score as he is batting unbeaten on 23(25). Think that's curtains for Dinesh Karthik with Rishabh Pant and Saha being the preferred choices henceforth.

it does not work like that for everyone.  none of the English batsmen do that. They are all mostly backfoot players.  Pandya had too much premediated front food forward, even got hit on the shoulder and got out to a delivery, he should not have lunged like that.  it was premeditated.  you need to react to the length and then play according to it and not preoccupied about just step forward on every delivery. it limits your scoring range as well.

You said playing on the backfoit and late is the mantra 

I am saying you play as much as you can on the front foot not every ball . Look how Rahul was out

Got out inside edging by throwing his hands without moving feet - can work in India but not in SENA. He needs to keep improving his off stump game and footwork for longer format.

 

But good to see him show restraint against good balls most times. Already seems to have improved a lot over last 2 years.
