    He should drop himself for the England tour even if he scores a 100 in each of the two Tests in SA. #Horsesforcourses ftw.

    Why can't Kohli also drop himself on green tops and England? He does sh*t when it swings around, so should be rotated with Rahane who is a good batsman on such pitches. What say @King Tendulkar?

    If Kohli has those seniors he would have been dropping them. Bar is too low with Dhoni. Dhoni did nothing. All Kohli had to do was to be neutral. Just be on 0, but no he wanted to take it further down. In the negative.

    Yesterday only we were having a discussion with a friend when I said that except Kohli everyone is droppable in this team and this friend laughed saying Bhuvi being best bowler isn't droppable. Took just 1 match to drop him. Imo, what's happening here is remarkable, unprecented, unbelievable.

    What's Up With Shami.

    Fitness is embarrassing but probably shouldn't expect much when he is playing cricket at an age when most have already retired.

    Bhuvi was threatening the place of Rohit as batsman, hence was removed...

    Not just pitch. It is a combination of bowler and pitch. Even in first Test, only Bhuvi was getting early wickets. None of the other pacers got any early wickets. You would have even called that pitch flat if Bhuvi was not playing then. At lunch on day 1 of first Test, bowling figures were: Bhuvi 3/39 Shami 0/33 Bumrah 0/31 Substitute Bhuvi with Ishant and it "WOULD" have been: Ishant 0/39 Shami 0/33 Bumrah 0/31 SA - 107/0 Comments on ICF - "Flat Track" "Bowlers can't do anything on such flat tracks" "Barely anything for pacers"

    Why double standards for selection??? Last match kohli said rohit was given pref on current form. Okkk 1. so why was nair dropped after making 300 2. why is bhuvi dropped today after doing so well last match with bat n ball If bowlers are selected acc to conditons 1. how can dhawan n rohit be selected in overseas over rahul n rahane

    Someone should mention it to SG that Dhawan isn't from Mumbai. He probably mixed up and thinks Dhawan is a Mumbaikar and hence he's backing him blindly.

    @King Tendulkar simple question, should Kohli also be dropped in all the test matches in Eng this year?

    Dropping Bhuvi and using the same "Horses for Courses" policy that allows useless hacks like Rohit and Dhawan to play on seaming pitches but doesn't allow Bhuvi to play on what are viewed as flat pitches, Kohli deserves this slap on his face. Day 1 of away Test is best time for pacers to exploit the conditions and get early wickets. Instead what we got was 148/1 at one stage before Ashwin and some generous run-outs from the South Africans pulling things back. When Ashwin is your best bowler on Day 1 of an away Test, you know that your pacers were seriously cr@p. The Kohli-Shastri combo deserves this though. SA never drops Philander, who is even slower than Bhuvi, when they see a flatter pitch and they have got good dividends from that policy with Philander averaging 21 in Test matches after almost 50 Tests. This constant chopping from the team is eventually going to completely degrade Bhuvi's confidence and ultimately that seems to be Kohli's goal to get players like Bhuvi and Rahane, who quietly go about their work out of the team.

    Lol sure he "would" have been tonked. I have to laugh at people who see Bumrah, Shami, Pandya ATCUALLY getting tonked and then speculate that Bhuvi MIGHT have been tonked. Elgar wasn't going to tonk anyone, he was begging for someone to take his wicket, all they had to do was make him play more balls

    Overall great day for India. Take a bow Ash. You weren't at your best but you still delivered for India. And special thanks to Pandya. That one run out is worth more than 50 runs. Kohli did well keeping up the energy.

    New ball will always swing in SA. Bhuvi can pick some wickets with new ball. Ishant can just pray to God for picking wicket with any ball.

    If there is no swing available even bhuvi can crank it up to 145kph this is not old bhuvi who used to depend on conditions, that ishant sharma didn't learn a s**t in all those 10 years don't expect any better performance from him than bhuvi in last game, pure rubbish by kohli destroyed Bhubaneswar here

    I have a small inkling that Kohli threw the match against Pak and put up that giggly schoolgirl pose to increase his brand and also to get one back at Kumble. Most embarassing moment in the history of Indian sports, any other fair and just nation he would be kicked out of captaincy. Even thinking about that F loss makes me cry so hard, 6-7 months after that massacre .

    Kohli is ridiculously bad at sledging LOL Markram plays a bad shot and kohli says "All because of Elgar boys, all because of Elgar"(Pointing out Elgar's very low strike rate which is putting pressure on Markram) The batsmen run just a single and Kohli says "It was an easy two boys". Dude needs to be a bit more selective with his talking. Quality over quantity VIRAT.

    We didn't lose 2010 series. And most importantly proven performers were not dropped for buddies. Those wins are despite Kohli. Pujara performed, but how do you give credit to Kohli for Pujara. Kohli was always looking for a chance to drop Pujara.

    A bowler who averages 54 on such wickets with a strike rate of 92 is our secret weapon

    Bhuvi faced most deliveries as an Indian batsman and took most wickets too in first test. If this is not contribution then I don't understand what is. Very harsh call by Kohli.

    Where did current form policy go Mr. Kohli when dropping Bhuvi? If it is horses for courses policy then why Dhawan in first test and Rohit still in team? Does his policy change depending on which side of the bed he wakes up?

    If Ishant plays in place of Bk today, it will be as dumb and as bizarre as Dhoni's "Fat RP Singh selection" in England.

    KM Asif - 90 mph Kerala Pacer

    Just saw his first 3 overs on hotstar What I really liked was his line ..... almost always between off-stump and 6th stump .... did not bowl many on or down the leg-stump or wide of off stump Combine these lines with consistent 140 k to 145 k speeds and bounce ..... it gets very interesting I would like to see his good length delivery too Jeff Thomson talked about a lot of pace talent in Kerala ..... he is right in a big way. He mentioned Thampi , Warrier , Asif and Tibin Joseph. Where is Joseph ! I don't know why Asif was not played for this long.
