    The benchmark must be very low if this selection committee is regarded as the best. The test/odi teams are a couple of injuries away from being exposed for their dependency on a few players. Batting depth in particular is nonexistent. The T20 team is a joke, a veterans XI that recycles has-beens and ignores young players. What vision has this committee shown? What is their strategy? All their selections are safe easy picks that a computer could do instead. There is no out of the box thinking or identifying young talent and backing them.

    If we don't try youngsters in t 20 in silly bilaterals, then when? I seriously think ipl auctions this year have a role to play in these selections. Hope we see some changes after the auctions are done and dusted.

    How many of the players in the team were really picked by these selectors? MSK Prasad became chief selector in Sept 2016. Pandya made his international debut in Jan 2016. I believe Sandeep Patil was the chief selector then. This selection commitee continues to pick Umesh Yadav in ODIs despite him having a horrendous record in ODIs and even some of his diehard fans don't support picking this guy in ODIs. They picked a veteran's team for T20 matches. No big strikers. They have no guts to drop Dhoni from T20s. They gave a rough deal to Pant. This is by far the worst selection commitee in recent memory. The successes are thanks to some picks from previous commitees.

    I am all for raising the bar for fitness so that unfit cricketers don't make it to the team. But there needs to be some study around how relevant this yo yo test is to cricket skills. Also, what about general catching ability? How come fitness that would help general ground fielding is given so much importance but taking catches, which is probably even more important than running hard to stop a boundary or running a quick single is not given any importance at all. The captain himself drops catches by the dozen. He might be a topper in fitness levels but he is also the worst catcher in the team. How come being a poor catcher doesn't incur any minus points?

    This selection committee has been the best in a long time regarding test matches, ODIs and A-team selections. Below average regarding T20 team selections.

    London: English cricket chiefs are exploring deploying "giant tents" to ensure rain no longer stops play, a report said on Wednesday.Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper said research was being carried out into placing mesh netting over grounds after a US company approached the England and Wales Cricket Board.The ECB has spoken to the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), which owns Lord's in northwest London, about the issue, the report said.A fine, transparent mesh would be held up by wires suspended from floodlights with a hot air balloon in the centre to lift it up and create a tent-like effect. "We would look at any new technology and ways to get games on and more people playing cricket," a spokesman for the ECB told the Telegraph."There is some interesting technology around trying to create protection from rain and keep the game on in wet weather," Guy Lavender, the new MCC chief executive, was quoted as saying."It is an enormous issue for cricket. When you think about the impact of the weather on cricket in the UK we have a part to play, as a leading club in the game, in thinking about how those new technologies develop and are tested."The report said there are issues to address such as how to handle the run-off water and safety in high winds The technology is believed to be at least two years away from becoming a reality.A damp August meant a large number of Twenty20 matches were wrecked and cricket authorities will be keen to avoid disruption to a new city-based T20 competition that starts in 2020. http://www.news18.com/cricketnext/amp/news/rain-interruptions-could-soon-be-things-of-past-in-cricket-1536187.html bcci should be thinking something lime this . Get the DL out of the game .

    if this idea becomes a reality, it could end up being one of the biggest advances in the history of the game (similar to WSC) and allow it to compete with rival sports. It could also mean the ECB ends up becoming an even bigger force in the world game as they could hold a world class domestic t20 competition.

    One thing that we suffered largely because is Dhoni, and if he still was captain we would have had an attack of BK, PK ,Unadkunt. Let's hope Aaron comes into the picture soon enough as he has unfulfilled potential n should've been more successful then Umesh

    One guy who I feel sorry for and could be better then Umesh was Aaron, he hasn't got selectors backng ,has pace , skills and could be India's fastest yet.

    What I like about Nagarkoti is that he is showing the ability to run through sides or take wickets in bunches and is a pacy bowler too.

    Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif has been approached by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) for the post of the team's head coach. Kaif is a top contender for the job and will become the second Indian to coach Afghan team, if he takes it up. This comes a month after ACB decided not to renew the contract of the current coach Lalchand Rajput. Source : inshorts

    Noida or Greater Noida is their home ground I think. That is in UP and kaif is from UP too.

    Not good enough. Their flawed approach is keeping us back, we will never be a truly dominant team even after having the right ingredients.

    But our test team is pretty much stable so they actually pick themselves. Ashwin and Jadeja have been very good albeit in SC but most of the players pretty much pick themselves. Only Kuldeep was the main pick but I guess even that was warranted. Their real test now is with Rohit Sharma healthy and how much 'leeway' he gets in test cricket where he has been largely underwhelming.

    I hope you watched the second match as well . A much easier situation compared to 85/5 in the first , why was Pandya doing tuk-tuk in the second ? How did we score 280+ in the first , while only managing 250 scoring only 40 runs in the last 10 ? http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/17974/scorecard/1119496/India-vs-Australia-1st-ODI-australia-tour-of-india/ http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/17974/scorecard/1119497/India-vs-Australia-2nd-ODI-australia-tour-of-india/

    It is surprising when people cannot see the difference in bending arm n Hyper extension which is arm bending past the straight position in the other direction, like Akhtars

    Srinath 1995-97, Umesh 2012-16 and Aaron 2012-15 were express bowlers too. Average speeds very often 140 k to 145 k .... fastest almost 150 k and occasionally more.

    Rahane opened and opening is the best spot on such pitches, the reason all openers did well Rahane, Rohit, Warner, Finch and middle order from both teams except Pandya struggled.

    Pakistan fast bowling factory

    lol applology not accepted..hehe..stop telling yourself that you care dude, come on you know you dont. Some scum cheated their way and got caught with their pants down, the ball can reverse with natural and wear & tear and some legal aid ( no pun intended), the illegal aid in terms of bottle caps and mud made it prodigious which is what fetched them wickets, this went missing after increased scrutiny. Some of them were legit fine bowlers, Wasim was definitely a great and Waqar could swing at pace but you can tell that they are not the messiahs that they are made out to be , they would not have needed bottle caps if they were.

    what has county cricket to do with reverse swing. Regarding batsman's knowledge, you can actually see that no bowler these days reverse the ball as much as Wasim-Waqar used to do in those days. It is apparently visible to know that those guys used to reverse the ball much earlier, much more and there can be only one reason for that, ball tampering.

    One thing I fail to understand is why is it everytime you guys bowl a side out cheaply you start praising your bowling but when other team bowls Pakistan out cheaply statements like these come out.Other teams have bowlers too they can bowl better than your bowlers.

    Agree with the list and now it is the selectors job to nurture and help bowlers from this pool and not keep on picking up, Dinda, Unadkunt, Dhawal coz it's counter productive.

    Should have had 4 wickets. Just the slightest bit of help for pace bowling, and Bhuvi rips apart batsmen. Not the worst on flat tracks either for ODIs. * his stats. The guy is quality.
