Rohit would have been an ideal foil

“I feel India made a big mistake of not having Rohit Sharma for the Test series. I presume Rohit was left out of the squad because he has been inconsistent at the Test match level but having stroke players whose defensive technique is found wanting, followed by batsmen who believe in only defending, Rohit would have been an ideal foil for captain Virat Kohli,” Mumbai Mirror quoted the ‘Colonel’ as saying.

 

Taking a dig at the selectors, Vengsarkar also said: “By discarding him (Rohit), the selectors, it seemed, didn’t apply their minds as to who would succeed in the English conditions and to create a backup plan.”

Sharma had a poor Test outing in South Africa earlier this year and was also ignored for the one-off Test versus Afghanistan in June.

Vengsarkar, who has a batting average of 48 in England with three centuries at Lord’s, said India should start preparing for the future challenges. The 62-year-old said Prithvi Shaw, who has been picked for the final two Tests, should be made to play ahead of one of the openers at The Oval to kick off that preparatory phase.

He is right about it.

Also as Gavaskar mentioned. Add a bat more into side by sacrificing a bowler. Now a days most teams dont last for even a day. Whats point of having a idle 5th bowler

Depends upon what set of questionnaire, Tailunt(PR team) had paid for journo to ask Vengsarakar. He seemed to have tried to tell that tailunt "could have been a backup".

Mishra bhai Rohit as backup in SENA is a guaranteed failure why not have Vihari or maybe some one who deserves it we have Gavaskar crying for Rahane Vengsarkar did the same ab Rohit bhai Mumbai k alawa bhi to baki players hai.

This was the best squad selected and best 11 played in every match except Lords. These players are just not good enough and it is time to move on from guys like Dhawan, Ashwin. Rahane and Pujara also should be done, they have shown no ability to sustain form and carry a team.

 

Rahul is not an opener and I would replace him too.

These Mumbai guys are smoking some good stuff. The guy who can't lay his bat on moving ball, hence proven every time, is being asked to play in such conditions. Big LOL! 

 

Ask him to be included in India A, and prove he is better than those guys to get into Test team. You have to start all over again, if you get dropped, which doesn't apply in Indian cricket. Thats why we never end up selecting guys who are in form.

Typic mentality of people. Whenever team loses, any guy sitting out of the team becomes a hero or the game changer which the team missed, forgetting that same player was miserable and gave the team too much trouble and not much runs after playing for India for almost a decade.

Amazing  !

 

Rohit's biggest problem in his career has been the moving ball and channel deliveries.

 

Test matches in England test a batsman primarily in these aspects.

 

Yet ..  dropping him is supposed to be a wrong decision just because he isn't playing and no one can prove that he would have failed.

 

The agendas never stop.

I would still drop Rohit for an old, retired and now commenyating VVS in the test team any day.

Thats what pisses me a lot, he wanted Kohli to fail just to prove his credentials as an 'EXPERT'. But still after more than 2 decades of his retirement everybody takes a mickey out of him. Disgusting man.

Regarding that Manju tweet,although Manju is a clown most of the times,that tweet during Aus tour was the general view of fans at that time

They were fed up with collective disaster of fab 4 and changes were imminent and Rohit at that time was always this cricketer "who would succeed in tests".People didn't know about Rohit incompetency till about 2014-15 when he was consistent failure overseas.

And regarding Virat,he was actually favouring Virat because till the Perth test happened,there were clamours about Virat being a test failure as well.Infact backing of Dhoni helped him during the tour.

Manju should be spared for this one :giggle:

These Mumbai players are an embarrassment. This joker calls himself a cricket analyst and we are forced to hear their non-stop cringe on TV.
