Should Kohli rest for the last Test?

Recommended Posts

Kohli needs a well deserved rest. Now that the series is lost, I think management should not play him in the next test as it's a dead rubber. It would be better to have another youngster gain the experience. Also if he rests now, they can play him in the Asia cup knockout stage. He can save India the embarrassment if they don't make it to the final

If there is no Kohli, we will either unearth some great batting due to responsibilities or bundled out in two days and the get the torture over in two days. For me, both are fine under current  circumstances  :lol:

No.

 

Big difference between 2 - 3  and  1- 4  in a test series.

 

I will play full strength team and go for a big win.

 

Finishing on a high would be good for the morale of the team.

Dont care about Asia cup. Would rather watch IPL. A win even in last match of the series will be satisfying. Will take 3-2 instead of  4-1 instead of  winning some shitty Asia Cup

You say that now but a win/loss against Pakistan > any ipl game for most members here.

Nahi yaar. Asia cup has been forced by ICC . Which other continent is playing a cup. Its Sharjah in disguise.

No Mishraji, nothing is more gratifying than thrashing Pakistan.

So we should start bilateral just to satisfy Indian fans. I dont want a game with Pakistan unless its absolutely mandatory.

If it was upto me, I would convince ICC to drop Pakistan and replace it with Nepal

Well, which other continent has more than 1-2 premium team playing for it? Asia has 5 test playing nations. So makes sense why this tournament is still around.

Australiasia Cup.

SENA Cup

Africa Cup (Zimbabwe,Kenya, South Africa + Invite Windies)

European Cup (SCOTLAND ENGLAND IRELAND,HOLLAND)

You can keep on doing it. Problem is India

 

ICC is not interested if India is not playing, There is no ICC cup without India. So why include Pakistan in a ICC Cup to belittle Indian fans, Indian people and India as a Nation.

Thats why I say. BCCI can bargain exclusion of Pakistan

^ that makes no sense man. That becomes a political issue rather than cricketing issue. If you're going to participate in any cup, might aswell include best of the best. Why exclude pakistan? I'm not really understanding your point here.

There is absolute guarantee that Pakistan will become no good good team, if someone like Srini Mama @velu  was incharge. He brought them to a level where they were struggling to compete with Zimbabwe and Ireland while build Bangladesh a competetive side.

 

And thats called real victory. :hatsoff:

Definitely. Kohli did hell of lot of batting to the team single handedly where non of the batsmen were able to support him consistently to build partnerships. He should be rested and lets see the potential of so called young talents how far they have matured to play a patient inning like Kohli. Since this is a dead rubber, Kohli should be saved for Asia Cup without risk of being injured. Lets give DK one last chance forever in his history of test cricket. :cantstop:
