Can vihari bowl well enough to keep it tight for a few overs? 

we need to bowl wkt taking balls. Don't mind giving 100 runs of we can pick up 2-3 wkts

Already two dropped catches . Bowling has gone legside a bit but England haven't punished it. It's unforgivable to drop catches like that. Bowlers can only create so many chances.

he is a part timers after a point they loose control

Thats why few of us have been so in favour of pandya or even shankar here.....

In this game, his job is to keep it tight and give little away so that other bowlers get a rest.

Can't afford to burn out Bumrah, who is due to play in Asia cup where he would be our prime bowler 

 

Jadeja is not a 1st inning bowler overseas .... so Sharma and Shami, who tends to huff and puff, will have to bowl more .... Probably missing Pandya already .... have to pick up quick wkts but we dropped catches too .... the pitch is good for batting

Pandya is inconsistent .... since he had a bad last game, he was due for a good performance .... Ind is missing his spell :hitler:

if u want that u dnt need one but atleast 2-3 batsman who can bowl 

10-15 overs cnt be bowled by one part timers most days ......

One is a start, it is better than force feeding Pandya into tests.

His selection is flawed to begin with and they then tried to turn him to something which he is not capable of  becoming yet.

 

Bits and pieces players will not work in tests, if specialists are bad look for better ones , no need to hoist player like Pandya into tests.

how is it flawed ??? 

 

It gave cushion to our bowling

Turned one test on its head with his bowling

Saved us in collapse agianst SA n Afghanistan, yes he can be consistent with bat but no one is scoring apart from kohli. N its to early to judge.......even a specialist like vvs had worse avg then pandya in his 1st 11 test and he played 5 games at home

Gr8 all rounders like kallis n many had poorer numbers in their 1st 11 games ...so u need to give everyone time . When failures like dhawan n rohit can whats the issue with pandya atleast he keeps contributing here and there

 

So dnt tell me its flawed . as we have also won test having these bits n pieces rather specialist

Pandya will be missed here, he used to ad balance to this side, used to provide much needed breather and respite to our  pacers, alredy fast bowling especially genuinely fast bowling is like punishment.

One pace bowler will be over bowled here and eventually burnout 

Hopefully its not bumrah, hopefully its ishant :--D

Apart from Kohli and Pujara with the bat, and pacers as a group, the "specialists" have struggled .... Can't play Akash Chorpa, for e.g., over Pandya just because Chopra is a specialist. Pandya has a much better test record in his first 10 tests than Chopra's

Just becuase noone is scoring they should let Pandya play, Kallis had talent which anyone who followed cricket could understand, it was just matter of time.Pandya even in wildest dreams does not come close to Kallis so stop using stats of Kallis.

 You are still hung up on stats, no one cares about stats of Pandya, it is his basic lack of ability which is very evident.
