    India's new FTP may have more T20 games https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/cricket/news/indias-new-ftp-may-have-more-t20-games/articleshow/62015824.cms What's the fuss about number of playing days? There are so many young players ready to play for those 84 extra days. If reducing workload is required, then it can be done without reducing matches. Just rotate players and give chances to those who are waiting eagerly for it or warming benches.

    I see a very sinister pattern here. He has finally realized that he has no chance of surpassing SRT's test tally. But if he can get more ODIs, 19000 ODI runs is reachable considering the prevailing balance between bat and ball. In Kohli's mind if he finishes as top ODI and T20 run scorer of all time, he will be regarded by the chewtiya public as the GOAT batsman. True, moronic Indian fans (majority) with no knowledge about the history of the game will buy that line of argument but in the eyes of proper knowledgeable Indian fans, Indian cricket will suffer, our overall standing in the game will be sacrificed at the altar of one man's unlimited greed and selfishness. Make no mistake, his firing of Kumble (Dumbledore) was not because of cricketing reasons, it is a well thought out long term strategy. Kumble was an honest selfless servant of Indian cricket who had a vision for team India, Kohli (Lord Voldemort) wanted chamchas (think of Shastribot as Pius Thicknesse) in that post. He wanted to become the undisputed dictator and block potential bright prospects. Eg: KL Rahul (Harry Potter), who has the potential to become a superior version of Kohli has been shunted away to accommodate guys like Dhawan, Rohit (test) and Pandey/Karthik/Jadhav (shorter formats). Kohli is scared of Rahul because he knows Rahul is a potential super star. Takes me back to Lord Voldemort, why did he want to control the wizarding world? It was not just his hate for muggles, he wanted a surveillance over the schools of the entire wizarding world (esp Hogwarts). By doing this he wanted to weed out potential threats, all wizards have to hone their skills in a schooling system....by identifying potential future Dumbledore's in their young age and killing them the immortal Voldemort would remain undisputed no 1. I see a similar trait between Kohli and the Dark Lord, hope the brat's wings are cut off before he does irreparable damage to Indian Cricket, at least unlike Voldemort he has no Horcruxes.

    Agarkar the voice of reason. Pandya needs to concentrate on cricket rather than his hairstyles. He hasn't achieved anything yet.

    the ball moved more than an inch. Come on now. Did you watch the match yesterday? It was crazy movement. And most of those players wont play in the test team anyways. Now you're just being pessimistic like fineleg. Sorry if I offended you.

    Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    Loved the phainty Kar gave to traditional rivals Mumbai. We always had a domestic rivalry Kar is #2 to Mumbai in RT history. One of the weakest Mumbai teams, Kar was also missing Pandey and Rahul. If they are not playing in ODIs, they should be released to play in Semi-finals at least, no point in benching on non-consequential SL ODI/T20 series. It's a huge morale boost for the state team esp if they reach finals! Jai Ambe! Jai Karnataka! Now, go beat Vidarbha just like Mumbai.. This is a fight for Belguam!

    Had talent-check got extended chances and a fair run - check This was by 2012-2013 No business getting chances in 2017. Also too many players playing for their spot in the team- Kuldeep, Iyer,Pandya all got atleast some runs because they were looking to score but Karthik was clearly playing to survive. Same with a Dhoni who showed more intent because he knows that is his only chance surviving on this pitch. We don’t need players playing for their spots...bring in the fearless youngsters.

    Well the argument that is being made here is that if the table wobbles,put a piece of paper under it...that exactly what a Pandya is the piece of paper,a patchwork as they say....however only for testmatches though....in the IPL generation it is a shame we don’t have a lower middle order power hitter and Pandya definetely is the only one in the current scenario who fits the bill best. however like it or not he will still be considered bits and pieces because his batting hasn’t been toporder material and bowling is definetely not good enough to be the 3rd seamer....there is a place for such players in limited overs though but he hasn’t evolved to a point of us starting him in the X1 in overseas tests.

    King Tendulkar

    upcoming batting talent

    Guys seriously . For odi /t20 you don’t need guys who can combat bowlers on tough tracks . You needs guys who explode in to action on flat tracks made for runs . all icc tournaments are run festivals . And most other game too . Yes you got odd once a year track like last game but don’t pick team based on that I actually want to see a run of games on 300 par tracks and then we can judge iyer . Maybe he is man to take us to 350 on these tracks we got excellent odi batting . What we need in middle order is not a guy who negate lethal swing on green mamba . But a guy who can go big last 15 overs . This is why dhoni is useless now as can’t up it and takes 30 balls to get going

    Why do greenbros love pretending to be Afghans? Maybe all the pillaging left some sort of memory in their DNA. Wannabe Pukhtoonism is strong in the naPaakistan.

    Yesterday, he WAS treated as a third seamer. India did not have a 6th bowler option in the lineup. It is as if we are expecting Hardik Pandya to bowl full quota of 10 overs and not a part-time bowler who will share overs with someone else (like Kedar for example). Agarkar was saying that Hardik does not deserve to play as a third seamer alone which means do not consider him a full time bowler giving you 8-10 overs but may be 5-6 overs with another 5th bowling option finishing the remaining quota of overs. Yesterday it did not matter because India scored very less. If India had nearly 200 runs on board and the match would have gone into 50th over, Pandya's overs are going to be crucial determinant in deciding the result of the match.

    This is farce from BCCI. They have got wrong solution for the problem.

    Pandya's cricketing career and treatment gives a feeling that he has already hit multiple 100s and taken many 5-fers. When actually he has done nothing so far at any level of cricket. 1 century and 17 fifties in 160 (FC, List A, T20s) games, to go with 1 5-fer and 0 4 wicket haul at any level.

    give me all those IPL stats/metrics and I will flush it in my toilet, this guy is a proven choker not only in batting but also in his wkeeping too, remember how he missed a crucial stumping at crucial time of sohaib masood off ashwin in Asia cup 2014 vs Pakistan??? hell, he didn't learn a s**t in all those 10+ years of in internationals.
