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.

 

yes coz pandya contributes in 2 dept

A batsman who once fails with bat is of no use

So if atalent like kallis took so much time why wudnt have half a talent like pandya wont in such tough condition, atleast he has shown some perfomance

Why to keep stats asie arent those perfomances, whe u wanna prove how kohli is the most successful captain dnt u use stats when it is evident that he is a foolish captain

"Jadeja to Cook, FOUR runs, over-pitched from Jadeja, and once again, Cook's eye for the opportunity is faultless. A stride to meet the pitch, a punch through the line, and there's no cutting that off at long-on!"

Pandya does not contribute in two depts , if he did he would be playing today . Kallis once he got his bearings right , he just took off which Pandya will never be able to do that is the difference, Pandya if he plays 150 tests also he will be the same bits and pieces player.

 

I rate Kohli as best captain not becuase of his stats but becuase of his ability to motivate his team to fight.He might be a worst tactician but those tactics are overrated.

so who took a fifer in 6 overs in 3rd test and made 93 in SA 

Kallis reached avg of 35 in his 24 test and his bowling stats werent gr8 till long and he played a lot at his homw

So pateince, pandya has only played 11 and yet top play a few at home 

 

 

Motivate team but news are coming team is not happy with him, infact rahane, vijay has regressed under him

Jadeja would have been better suited for last test and Ashwin with his variations would have suited more for this test. Ashwin has shown he is incapable to sticking to basics.

And if Ashwin were playing here, Jadeja would have been better :whack:

That 5fer was fluke which he proved the very next test much like his 93.I have all patience for youngsters but not for bits and pieces players who will never get better.

 

Vijay is done thats why he regressed, captaincy has got nothing with it.

"Jadeja to Cook, FOUR runs, crunched through point! This is what Cook does so well, Jadeja could be heard cursing before the ball had even reached him. He knew he'd dragged it down, and he paid the price"

yea let ur batsman 1st get those fluke of 93 and then ill see coz other were even struggling to make 50 runs 

oh so u expect him to take 5fer every game or he cnt have an off game 

Pandya bowled well in 2nd n 3rd test so dnt tell me he was fluke

Even ishant was offcolor in 2nd test

ofcourse it is when u keep players like vijay , rahane on edge for player like rohit n dhawan after minnow bashing it plays a role and yes they themselves are also resposible 

no wonder now complains are coming

Jadeja is doing just fine here.Jadeja is doing what  he does best and he has done all thru his career.He becomes redudant on unhelpful pitch not that Ashwin would have done wonders here.Ashwin has more variety that was my point and that variety hurt him last test.

3-1 ahead .... Eng araam se khelo :nod:

 

When we needed to pick 20 wkts, we went with :hysterical:

Yes, if 3 main seamers can't pick wickets, 4th one will be useless. With a specialist bat, we can bat big and at least keep it at 3-1.

We should look to play with Bumrah, Ishant & Shami along with Bhuvi as all rounder for aus tour. One spinner Jaddu or Ashwin. 

to much bowling, 5th bowler will be underused

better take shankar or pandya , Take them on NZ-A tour before and see who does better at what

thats to give ur bowlers rest 

now bumrah is bowling long spells and in few days he has to go for asia cup 

in 2013-14 we have done the same mistake n broke down Zak for ever and shami pace dropped down in 4 test

We need to give proper rest to bowler. Aus pitches will be good for batsman so have bowlers who can bowl 18 - 20 overs in day or just go with 4 pacers + one part timer.

Let's play 7 batsmen in that case :lol:

 

And Eng can bat for 2 1/2 days .... Curren ki bhi 100 karwe de .... Chances of a draw will increase

No wickets but horrible run rate this

Does Eng cares about run rate? Would not be better off by batting for 2 or more days when a draw is still a good result for them? .... It is Ind that needs to win to salvage something
