A series is not always defined by the scorecard - Virat Kohli

Rahane has hell lot of issues with spin. Barring the last test vs Saffers at our home where he scored 2 centuries in a test, he didn't do anything of note in our grand home season except a test innings against NZ. 

Pujara with all his experience in his 9th year of international cricket, has to spend almost half a year in England but wakes up from slumber to perform only when our backs are up to the wall in do or die situation. In SENA, he has scored in only flat Joburg, 2013 & this one at Rose Bowl. 

Kohli,for all his tactical & strategic mistakes, at least scores in all situations & is a top scorer from either of the sides. It is natural to have him lead the team. Everybody will favor him only & I don't blame them for it. Had Ashwin not been oversmart & put down his head, did his duty honestly then who knows.

First of all, he doesn't deserve a place in any of the shorter formats. Him being kept forcibly in t20s & that too in opening slot has hurt us big time in not even one but two t20 WCs. He should focus on tests, also he doesn't have the ability to rotate strike fluently or has the power game to clear boundary with ease. Rahane of 2011 which went on England tour for limited over series was much better than Rahane of 2016.

Has Bhuvi captained before? As far as I know he hasn't.

Sharma for all his deficiencies has a knack for captaincy & I wouldn't have mind if he had been the skipper but I've never seen a player who struggles so much when the color of the ball changes. 

Fine butthe point I am trying to make is that there is too much power concentrated in too few hands. It needs to be divided equally.

Not really. Sachin Dravid >>> everywhere as bat than Ganguli.

Ganguli >>> captain than 2.

captain doesnt need to be best bat. 

He should not go blank and should back right players

What do you want them to say before the series ? hum se nahi hopayega bhaijaan ? :cantstop: England are pretty strong at home. We are the weak team here not them. 

I don't care what they say. They should just win the matches in overseas if they are really #1 side else there is no difference between eng and india.

Kohli is content with this situation. 

He is the captain and the batting lynchpin and will keep getting accolades. 

Losses will be blamed on others. 

We need to unearth more star players whether its Shaw or Gill or whoever. Whether the selectors and Kohli are ready to that is the question. 

Looking at the squad for Asia Cup,Its pretty certain we are in for more hurt while Kohli and Shastri laugh all the way to the bank
