    Get used to it guys, this team under Kohli will be the greatest test team of India, heck will go on to say, might match even Steve Waugh's team away from him. I see the new Indian team winning series in South Africa, England and Australia.

    You name your missiles Ghauri, Ghaznavi. Yet Mohammeds of Ghor & Ghanza utterly raped, pillaged, genocided and burnt to hell everything in what is Pakistan today, except for FATA region& Baluchistan. The Pashtuns united with Ghazna to genocide the Kambojas, who lived in the Khyber & Malakand region till then. He then utterly raped, pillaged, killed & plundered vast swathes of Punjab & Sindh, where 90% Pakistanis come from. So basically, you celebrate the ones who killed, raped & enslaved your direct ancestors.

    17-1 India's win-loss record in Tests at home when they have lost the toss since the start of 2006 - by far the best for any team during this period. The next-best in this list are Australia who have a 16-5 record in 26 Tests at home when they have lost the toss. During the same period, India's record when they win the toss at home is 14-4. Impressive

    These points are before the match I guess. The official ICC Rankings has India at 115 and England at 105 points, so 10 points difference http://www.icc-cricket.com/team-rankings/test Rank Team Matches Points Rating 1 India 29 3328 115 2 England 44 4631 105 3 Australia 40 4189 105 4 Pakistan 32 3274 102 5 South Africa 29 2944 102 6 New Zealand 38 3666 96 7 Sri Lanka 35 3370 96 8 West Indies 30 2077 69 9 Bangladesh 15 978 65 10 Zimbabwe 10 48 5

    Kapil unlike Ashwin ( Ashwin has lot less load when Indian teams travel away from subcontinent) was carrying the load of Indian bowling till late 1980s even in India, unlike Srinath who had Kumble , Kapil for most part did not even posses a stable spinner as bowling partner. Those who are comparing Kapil and Ashwin purely based on stats need to understand the mindset of Indian team and India in general in 1970s and 80s. They were meek and submissive team even at home. Kapil Dev provided that X -factor and edge which no other cricketer has provided India .Kapil Dev was the strike and stock bowler of the side at the same time.Stats never complete story about a player. In 1983 world cup there was no telecast/highlights for an Indian world cup match and now we have even practice games being telecast live, Kapil will remain root cause for Indian team's rise to dominance.There is reason why Kapil was voted Indian cricketer of century over Sachin. Anyone who doubts Kapil's ability should go and read the article on Cricinfo about his last test hundred with one hand against a rampaging Allan Donald on a pitch where rest of the Indian top order were looking scared. That said Ashwin will end up as greatest all rounder from Indian once he wins some matches in England/Australia/SA.

    Once injury healed - for Test squad - would you choose Rohit Sharma or Parthiv Patel - as extra batsman? (assume for poll, between the two)

    8 years since the heinous attacks on Mumbai by 10 Pakistani Terrorists that resulted in deaths of 160 plus people. The 10 terrorists may have been killed but the masterminds like Hafeez Saeed,Zakir Ur Rehman Lakhvi,Zarrar Shah etc live freely in Pakistan with full support of Pakistan govt. We must not forget this and must never forgive the perpetrators.We must make sure this never happens again.Every step in our dealings with Pakistan must be taken keeping in mind what they have done. Lets this never be forgotten.

    We have Shami, Umesh, Ishant, Bhuvi and Pandya in our test team now. I would like Shardul Thakur, Nathu Singh, Aniket Choudhary and Varun Aaron to be included in our pool of test fast bowlers as back-ups....and train with our team under Kumble-Kohli to improve their skills. ( We have seen Shami, Umesh etc. improve under this duo ) Shardul is a fast-medium swing bowler with a good bouncer and wicket-taking ability. Nathu is a genuine fast bowler who can be very handy when genuine pace is required and can add value when playing in India. Has a knack of polishing off the tail with quick swinging yorkers at will. Aniket is a very tall, left-armer of lively pace and good FC record. Would give us the left-armer's advantage. Aaron has genuine pace, good bouncers and can reverse the ball.

    Here is what Pakistan and Pakistaniyat is in reality: When Pakistan was formed as a nation for Indian muslims , half of the muslims decided to be a part of secular India. The idea of Pakistan failed then and there for the 1st time. But when Pakistan was formed anyway, Pakistani leadership thought that if they exist just as a South Asian Muslim country, that would not justify their conception as half the muslims were in India. Hence, Pakistan decided to position itself as semi-Arab, semi-Central Asian country to distinguish itself. Hence started the Islamization. Pakistan was happy positioning itself as a second rate Central Asian state or a third rate Arab state than a proud South Asian state. And hence, they started to be in denial about their past and ancestry and made " heroes" out of the Central Asian invaders of current day Pakistan like Abdali, Ghaznavi, Babur and naming their made in China missiles after them..etc. This is the reality of Pakistan. They are brainwashed and lied to about their past. Who can dispute the above ??

    I am stating the obvious, haven't seen such a poor, n defensive captain, who did not understand or value fast bowlers. Do you remember" Do we need fast bowler or good bowlers" what a jerk n Kohli has proved how wrong n poor he was, he should have never been made to capt a test side as he had no idea at all to captain. In longer version n did a lot of damage to the team n our test side

    Very good article. This also shows how much coaching and guidance is required (agreed this was when much younger age but every year there is growth too), NOT JUST mercurial talent. Coaching, guidance and exposure in domestic matches and A-teams is required. Let him get all of that in the next one year or two. Later we can talk Test cricket possibility. "Initially my technique was horrible. He had said that if I learned the basics of the game, I would score very well. It wasn't happening instantly because once I made these changes, I couldn't score properly. He was only teaching me the basics, without which you cannot play. Like driving off the front foot; I didn't know until then how to drive. If I had not come to Sonnet Club, then I don't know where I would have been right now."

    These are people who name their missiles after those who invaded their land and persecuted them. Pakistan has standards only in chori, makkari, selfishness, delusion and ignorance. They know that their land has no value and no takers , so they give it for apparently for less money. China is also happy as it can sustain a bankrupt Pakistani economy so that Pakistan sustain hostility with India as per Chinese'plan' to 'contain' India.

    It is easy to call Dravid a defensive captain then but lets not forget he wanted to win the series for India and did not want England to win that match and level the series. We couldn't have forced follow on with our best bowler Zaheer injured. Yes, Zaheer wasn't the fittest then either and he was having some side strain in the middle of that game and had England come out and scored 500 in 2nd innings, we would have been in deep trouble chasing 200ish and could have surrendered the test match and series too for a draw. Also check this out, he wanted to add 200 quick runs after not forcing follow on and declare but our top order collapsed in that game. We were like 10-3 affer had to bat carefully or we would have been rolled over for 100 runs. He held one end and let others score on other end eincluding Ganguly and Laxman and Dhoni. And as you can see England batted well in the fourth innings as pitch was still good for batting. We could not bowl them out Right decision by Dravid in all aspects.

    Dravid being a defensive captain is a myth... Check the number of low scoring ODI's we have won & defended under Dravid or the fields he had during his test captaincy tenure.

    Shami came up with a hostile spell of genuine fast bowling today, with the 2nd new ball. The first ball was a nasty bouncer which hit Woakes on the helmet and unsettled him badly. The next ball was a similar delivery which had the batter fending in front of his face and an easy catch lobbed to the keeper. Later in the same over, another quick, well directed bouncer had Rashid hook awkwardly for a catch in the deep. He was generating some pace and bowled quite a few other good bouncers in that short spell. But, there was solid planning behind the sequence of deliveries too, which kept in mind the pitch as well the the batsmen that were playing. It is great to see an Indian fast bowler bowl like this on Indian pitches without any grass. He bowled 2 other excellent spells in the last 2 test matches. The first was in the 1st innings of the 3rd test. With wickets not falling, he was introduced and picked up 2 crucial wickets with some high quality swing and seam bowling at pace. The other spell was in the 2nd innings of the 2nd test...when he again bowled with skill and intelligence. A fast, inswinging yorker had Root trapped in front of the stumps after pushing him back with a short one.... and a bouncer took care of Rashid. Shami is now bowling with genuine pace of 135 k to 147 k, getting awkward bounce, bowling excellent bouncers, he is a skiddy customer, swinging the ball both ways with both conventional and reverse swing, seaming the ball and setting up batsmen. I am really, really enjoying his bowling. After return from injury, he is now averaging 26 with a SR of 56 in the 9 completed test matches he has played. Kohli and Kumble's support for fast bowlers have given an edge to their bowling in the last year or so, with Umesh improving his accuracy too.

    @maniacI agree wholeheartedly with your view. He really made gangster genre cool. He was at one time at the very top of his game. But now sadly he has become downright pathetic. Instead of spending time on twitter if he sincerely makes a good movie even now he can regain his lost glory.

    We need to absolutely win 4-0...anything else would be a disappointment. This would neutralize the pain of 2011. still 2012 and 2014 to go....had we won 5-0 2014 would have been ok to some extent as losing 3-2 to England in their home turf would be ok. anyways need 2 more brutal ass kickings after 4-0.... anything less than that I want more BLood
