Prithvi Shaw has got his maiden Test call and it seems fans want him to replace out-of-form KL Rahul.

 

Rahul has played three Tests and scored merely 94 runs and that seems to be playing against him. Shaw, on the other hand, has impressed for India A in England and it seems fans feel it is the right time to get him to open.

Moeen Ali

Sam Curran

Adil Rashid

Stuart Broad

James Anderson

 

I think it's a stronger batting unit but weakened the bowling with Woakes being injured.

 

Woakes is a much better bowler than Curran and him out is a big blow to England. The latter only swings it one way (inswing) and apart from the 4 wickets in the first innings of the first game has done nothing special. He bowls slower and if played responsibly will pose little threat to the Indian batsman. In the first game most of his wickets were gifted by India. Curran albeit is a very positive batsman.

 

Moeen has actually been much better with the ball than bat this county season. Apart from the double century he's been scratchy this season with the bat and continues the same so-so form to the limited over Indian series. Considering Pope has had little to offer (I think he's a tad unlucky and looked good the few balls he was there) Moeen is a nice trade.

 

India should have a more potent bowling attack in 3 pacers and all rounders in Ashwin and Pandya. Having four quick bowlers will be vital as I expect long spells to be bowled. Spin will have little role till day 4 or 5.

Asian Games is so engrossing that I may miss the test proceedings for 1st 3 days. So much sports going on simultaneously, in fact this whole year has seen so much sporting action.

We are doing very well at athletics,but honestly we could have done much better in other sports.Want to see India getting into the top 3 consistently withing the next decade.

I'd be tempted to get bhuvi in if he is fit.

 

He took 9/1/33/3 today vs Aus A but too late for him to fly and joins team in Ageas bowl ( Rose bowl)

That's a strong team. They still managed to rope-in Curran with this combination. I heard Moeen is in a fine form with the bat. 

India need to remove cook as soon as possible koz he has good record here, I think at least one innings England Lost last 6 wickets in 100 runs in 4th test

England going in with 2 spinners. Will we do the same 

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, people standing and text

they have just included a batsman in Moeen who can bowl spin in place of Pope.  We dont have that extra batsman who can bowl spin. They still have four seamers.  We cant afford to go with just 3 seamers at Ageas Bowl.

The best we could hope for I think. England going in with 6 bowlers while compromising their batting strength. I hope Ash and Ishant are fit enough to run through these 7 left handers . As long as we play moeen Ali well, I think we're good. 

Moeen is batsman first.

An on song Kuldeep can run through line ups within a matter of overs.Good legspin is always better ,and he is a left hander ,the rarest of bowlers you can find.

If only one spinner is to play ,it has to be ash no doubt.

It's kind of embarrassing that we are still behind the likes of Chinese Taipei, Indonesia, North Korea, Iran. It's clear China, Japan and South Korea will be top three for quite some time, but we are still struggling to get to #4 in the medal tally.

Yes but an ineffective batsman with many weaknesses that can be exploited. I suspect that one of the other bowlers (Stokes/Broad/Jimmy) are not fully fit and that England are going for moeen just for the extra bowling option as well. Just a hunch though. Otherwise there was no need to drop pope.

Bahrain and UAE must have stolen atleast 6 gold medals or more from India with Nigerian and Kenyan born and raised athletes representing them.

Moeen is in good batting form so they picked him over Pope

If we are talking about form in county, then pope had a fantastic year as well from what I've heard. I highly doubt Moeen Ali is any better a batsman than when he played in the Ashes and, barring, a shocker from our bowling attack we should dismiss him cheaply.

well indonesia and some others like thailand have no business being in the top 10,they are mostly there due to some random local sports like pancay silat(13 or so golds have been won by indonesia)and a few others.Absurd how this has been allowed,we should include gillidanda and kho kho next time we host the games.

Are India thinking of playing both R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja at the Ageas Bowl?

 

Some might even suggest that thoughts of playing a second spinner might have crept into India's minds after Joe Root revealed that Moeen Ali would play the fourth Test and share spin duties with Adil Rashid.

Moeen, however, is taking the place of a specialist batsman, Ollie Pope, and England view his offspin as a bonus, given the many and varied bowling options they already possess.

I hope we don't play just 2  specialist pacers again.   :wall:      England want us to fall into this trap by playing Moeen  ( who is actually replacing a batsman )

Weather has been pretty cold, pitch will never dry so one spinner will be more than enough.

1-3 coming up. After Ind loses this test, it could win the dead rubber to make it 2-3 :((

 

Anyways, 

  • 2 from: Shaw, Rahul and Dhawan 
  • Pujara
  • Kohli
  • Vihari / Rahane 
  • Pandya
  • Pant
  • 4 Bowlers, some of them could have off-days :dontknow:

Kohli says no change in batsman category but if, track found spin Conductive,jadeja will be includes in the 11 member team, risky, because all 5 days remains cloudy which help pacers.

 

Stokes injured so he will not bowls.England included

Both Rashid and Moeen in 11 member team

YCCC

All 3 Nair, Shaw and Vihari will be in the oval test or two from above list if, India loose series at rose bowl.(4)

 

Kohli most un-likely to drops Rahul after he took 7 catches in previous test.(Cook 60 in 5 innings, so far)

 

If you hits 30/40 for BCCI you are good for next 5 tests.Rahul most likely to open with dhawan on Oct 04-08,'18 First test in India vs westindies

Hopefully ashwin is match fit ,with 7 lefties ashwins and ishant will be kicking their lips .England have played tight into India's hand by weakening their batting but their bowling is damn strong. 

Just bat first
