1) I have only seen players getting worse -especially the batsmen under Kohli-Shastri regime

2) I know these past player Dudes very well.
Give them a little bit of power, and they will go crazy.
Dravid is okay for U19-A team coaching where power play is not in works.

3)Compare KL'S photoshoots and Showboating and his performance with the bat.
Another wasted talent.
This team is full of Vinod Kamblis.


4)He was good in 3rd Test but In 4th Test, not so.
Honestly an upgrade over Dinu but I don't think he can Take Saha's position RN.
Pant reminds me a lot of Choreographer Ganesh Acharya.
Fat dude who can jump around a lot.

Yes his photoshoot is responsible for his technical issues......he has to stand still in a photograph so many times that his feet have stopped moving

This Ashwin situation is a possible controversy. He has received a lot of flak for not taking wickets in the third innings of the last Test. Moeen took nine in the game, and there was a lot of rough to work with. Ashwin just couldn't land the ball there consistently. TV split-screen replays of his action from Edgbaston and from Southampton suggested strongly that he was not 100% fit. He was not putting the same energy into the action, the left leg didn't go high, the pivot was missing, all classic signs of a niggle. But the Indian team management has been insisting he was fully fit. If he is left alone now, and if he is not seen training even, the obvious question is, what did he do between that Test and now to put himself out of training even?

Why no Shaw yaar????

Yeah Shaw might not be ready but they should atleast try him because Dhawan is a gone case.

I will say Vihari Was the one we didn't need today.
Should as well push Shardul instead

Pandya, though I don't like him-was a handy bowling option.

Kohli: "Ashwin aggravated his niggle." :cantstop:

 

Virat Kohli has hit back at criticism of the lack of tour games. The gist of it, in his interview with Uncle Tom Holding on Sky, is that you don't get good oppositions for tour games these days, and that is why they are actually worse preparation for a Test series than nets among themselves. :facepalm:

Never understood this ready business. If he is not ready why he is in the squad? If by not ready means Shaw would have failed, thats fine. Its not as if Dhawan and Rahooooool is setting world on fire.

sunny g is furious over not selecting nair

saying team mngmt doesnt like nair

Sunil Gavaskar is fuming on Sony Six. "He is not your favourite player. The selectors seem to have brought him. Don't think the team management likes him. Karun Nair has every right to ask the team management why he is not in the team. He deserves an answer. You didn't pick an extra specialist batsman earlier, but now that you have, Karun Nair deserves an answer."

 

Cheerleader snubbing Dravid's son?

Just 4 specialist bowlers? One extra batsman is not going to much of a difference. Who come up with these decisions. 


Kohli and his idiotic Brain.
There were some mediawalas who were calling for Dropping Pandya for Vihari!!
Bam!
Now this!
I don't understand why can't Virat give full backing to useful players and let the media influence.. I understand Dropping Kartik for Pant, but why Pandya got dropped?
I don't even like him much and I'm saying this.

Exactly.
I think Dhawan should've been dropped at least to give Shaw a chance. He's young and fresh - eager to learn too.
A much bigger upgrade from that thigh slapping Ullu.
I will never understand people who wanted Vihari for Pandya.
We need an opener(possibly 2-but KL rahul needs to be dropped soon though I don't see it because now Bunty money has got involved )- and not an all-rounder.

I don't know is it true or not - not really gossip but this is one inference I gathered... Kohli doesn't like players who are quiet and keeps to his own.
He always prefers players with tattoos, weird obnoxious attitude and streaked hair.
Amiright?

I rate Gill and Vihari over him. 

Shaw is not overrated ffs I have closely followed him in u19 WC, and this is a dead rubber, he should have played in place of dhawan or Rahul at least we would have had a better look of his technique n temperament, both dhawan and Rahul has done pathetic job in this series.

Even I rate gill over shaw but this is not the way to groom a youngster.

To each your own.
But I really want to know which idiot wanted Vihari in the team.
They couldn't send Siraj who is in great form but sent Vijay back home and send this Vihari.
If anything, we need openers.
Shaw should've been debuted today instead of Vihari

Our cricket is in crisis lol. No transparency at all. Firstly Ashwin should not have played with a niggle. Just like his bhuvi played without being fully unfit. Squads not picked fully on merit. Apparently , there is no need for practice matches since the opposition is poor and net sessions are better. Just seems to get better. Either Kohli is just a puppet in the hands of the powers that be or he is incredibly dumb and has no idea what is needed to prepare for such tours. Or maybe, they just don't care enough about it enough. Just too many things wrong with our cricket nowadays.
