Worst part is expert fans all were behind him. Keeping aside conspiracy theories floated on this forum even ex players used to feel surprised on his non selection. Huge let down rahul.

As if rahul has given money to all the fans and experts to support him. When he debut he has more than 50 avg in ranji and has hit century in sf and final to win ranji fir his state just after debut he made century in aus. He has 7 back to back 50 in test cricket , show me any other player who has such a fine start of his international test career. Stop making nonsense accusations. When he was in form he was dropped for dhawan and vijay time and again. He is not in form now and he should be sent back to domestic to improve  his basic.

A player averaging 35.77 is in no way a good specialist test batsman, forget being a ATG or legend. At the end of the day it is proved he was a hyped average batsman who could not even perform like an average batsman.

 

Now is the time for him to go back to domestic cricket. Play proper long innings unlike the hack shots he plays and gets out to. Learn to be patient in FC matches.  Come back as a better test more likely to prove he can be atleast an average test class batsman. He is 26 so there are many domestic seasons he can use to make comebacks.

Back in 2014 IPL he used to be test batsman and i remember finding many similarities between him & Kane Williamson. Both were same type of player that time. Rahul since then looks like worked more on his t20 batting than test cricket. He should have made his one spot permanent then focus on other formats.

Talented but unfortunately couldnt make most of his opportunities. Then again, opening in SENA countries is one of the toughest jobs you can have. Perhaps, Gavaskar and to a certain extent Murali Vijay could do it successfully over a period of time. Sehwag is a different beast really, so not counting him.

People do get exposed when most international teams have had the opportunity to study you and work out your weakness. There is a certain someone who had a tough time in england, he worked on it and next time around did well. Rahul has been getting out in similar fashion the entire year, its not about form its about technique. Sooner people accept it better and stop blaming anything and everything under sun for Rahuls downfall.

Yes he has this issue with incoming delivery eve. Pukara had this same issue last year and he has to work on it by playing domestic. But it doesn't mean hd can't sort it out. Problem is he is getting all chances when he is in middle of back to back abroad tour , he needs to be given a break to work on his issue.

On a serious note Rahul cannot learn the trades by just being in the team,he needs to sweat it out in Domestics make his case again,he is one hell of a talent,deeply gutted by his recent form story

He was given a decent run off late can't deny that,if we as his fans can question others for their poor form and demand kl's inclusion then it will be quite unfair on our part  if we remain silent on his mediocre run when there are others who are waiting for their chance after toiling hard in domestics and A tours

But even if he makes tons of runs in Ranji cricket in India(which he has already done btw), there is no guarantee he will score runs in SENA countries because test cricket over there is a completely different ball game altogether. Best bet for him is to go play county cricket like Pujara did and focus less on limited overs cricket but I doubt he will cut down on IPL or LOIs.

Reminds of Robin Uthappa's downfall.

Serious talent but cluttered mind. Test cricket is serious cricket. If you are not totally committed to the game, you will be found out in no time.

 

People get carried away looking at Kohli's glamorous life but the amount of efforts he puts in towards his game is just mind-boggling.

This thread is unduly harsh.  Yes, he has slumped and slumped badly.  The weakness to that in-coming ball has completely messed up his mental approach to the ball.  Needs to improve.  

 

But let's not get carried away and bash him unfairly.  waitamint that's the ICF specialty - yesterday's golden boy quickly becomes today's pinata.  Rinse repeat. 

 

Mark my words, a few months down the road, the same crowd will have its pitchforks for Rishabh.

My worry is ppl here are so technically Jhand that they are blaming his Insta Life n all 

Saalo ko ye samajh nhin aadmi na 24 ghanta INSTA pe hota hai na INSTA 24 ghanta leta hai , lagta hai inhone ne kabhi Instagram use nhin kia jo pura din uspe baithe hote hai

 

Pata nhin Inko Technical problem men nidhi aggerwal aur instagram kaha se dikhta hai

  • The combined average of the openers is 18

As for KL, just 1 50+ score in 18 inning. Now take 149 out and his avg would be similar to Vijay's :dontknow:

Do you think Agarwal or Vihari would average better in test cricket than Vijay and Rahul who have bad test averages.  How do you rate Agarwal and Vihari technically. From what I watched at least these two newbies play the format than playing hack shots. Good to see new comers are doing better than sacked seniors. What's your view on this opening pair.

 

No  wicket after 17 overs. Awesome, isn't it.  The benchmarks are low. So feel these two new comers should up the opening standards significantly. Look to bat whole session i.e. another 45 minutes.
