    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.

    Why is everyone blaming this on Kohli lol It's because the broadcaster demanded it .Nothing to do with Kohli. BCCI is phasing out test cricket slowly because there isn't much interest and hence broadcasters don't want it.And they are not the only board doing it either.

    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.

    Kohli loves test cricket. Cant blame Kohli here. The players wanted lesser playing days and better workload management, so the board went after the least profitable form of cricket. This is what Kohli said recently "“My favourite obviously is Test cricket, we are making sure from every angle that this should be the most important format because as batsman or as bowlers also we know how pleasing it is to score in Test matches, especially when conditions are tough,” Kohli said." http://www.thehindu.com/sport/cricket/virat-kohli-speaks-about-his-fitness-and-diet-change-on-his-stupendous-success/article21258591.ece https://sports.ndtv.com/cricket/virat-kohli-wants-youngsters-to-focus-more-on-test-cricket-1781606

    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.

    Its not easy to find out that this guy get time to date a Bollywood Superstar who too has busy schedule. He has all the time in world to make all them video adverts and photo shoots for various corporates and meets When it comes to cricket he says, I am not a Robot in the same sentence you can see he has all time in world to briefed and debriefed by his PR machinery. He is a solid bat and MC /BC guy but that bolded bit has litterateur skill and definitely coming from PR machinery.

    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.

    We re so starved for a medium pace allrounder that we have elevated a guy with no bowling talent to super stardom.

    Reducing 20 playing days per year for the Indian team - but stay tuned for an IPL expansion in the same 4 year timeframe.

    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.

    look at the guy behind them..how proud he is of them. I am sure he thinks they are the fastest bowlers in the planet...he will go to his friends and say 'eanu sakkdhagi bowling madthare gothhaa magaaa? super phasttuuu stumpu kartu wheelingu maadathe" and then he will proceed to his home to his wife named lakshmi call out..." lakshmiiiii anna sambhar thogondubaa maa" ..for sure thats the guy.
