    Nobody cares about a loss if you fight well, I wasn't even upset after the first test loss but the 2nd test brought back the memories of dhoni era which is absolutely pathetic

    Loss happens, part of the game but problem arises when you are not trying and are taking things for granted.

    Why no practice?

    Sachin didn't give him autograph. He hasn't been able to forgive him for that. Now all of his life is dedicated to these kind of silly&baseless posts.

    The previous captain was more worried about IPL loss than a test loss, he played international matches as practice matches for IPL

    Bollywood Effect, They make shitte selections, keep the deserving players out, shoo out Anil Kumble, do not take away tours seriously, go under prepared, and then come out with emotional statements like these to feed sentiments of millions of emotional buffoons.

    I can understand where Bhajji is coming from. He single handedly won us so many tests in England

    Still a lot better than the previous captain, who would just laugh it off like nothing had happened.

    watched some highlights .. our batsmen might have done better if they tried "kiki challenge" when facing anderson & co instead of playing them

    Pure PR crap. He knows his advertisers will desert him if team does shyte. With his back problem dunno if he will be among runs . It's going to be worse going forward and he knows it. Its like seeking Anticipatory bail. Nobody tried and its for lack of efforts that fans are decrying them. 5 day holidays ,Copenhagen vacation, truncated practice match, zero intent. Public know about it. With indian media remaining shut and English media asking tough questions the fans have also started questioning. Kohli walk the talk on the field and then ask us fans to calm down. When the attitude is like Bollywood heroes expect the brickbats.

    He must have tweeted this in between the shopping sprees or from the night club, bcos surely they were not practising yesterday. Would have rather him posting the pics of team practising than such empty PR words.

    This one has been discussed in WA group earlier. When I asked a friend to return back my money, I got the reply that you must have got your salary by now, why do you need money.

    Why no practice?

    This is essentially the difference between talent and tailunt. Yeah, some might be naturally more gifted at things than others, but at the top level when we speak of Tendulkar’s talent, it mostly refers to the immense hard work and hours in practice that he put in to achieve what he did. There is simply no substitute to practice. There was an interview of Tendulkar by Hussain I happened to watch a couple of days back, where he spoke about playing on uncovered pitches with dew before his first tour to England. His career is replete with such well known examples like his practice before facing Warne and playing on concrete surfaces before Australian tours asking bowlers to bowl from 18 yards. That’s why all this talk about Anderson being unplayable in these conditions is rubbish. Sure, the odds are heavily in his favor, but if you’ve replicated those scenarios as many times as you could, your chances of success increase. Would Tendulkar or Dravid be knocking off centuries every innings here? Probably not, but with the amount of practice and preparation they did, they would not be folding up like this either. Test cricket is replete with great knocks being played in immensely challenging situations, more difficult conditions for batting than India encountered at Lord’s. Those knocks came about because of intense training and practice, where like all great batsmen have said, the muscle memory takes over because you’ve done those things so many times before in preparation.

    This is why I believe it's time to be decisive and allow at least 1 batsman to go after the bowling. These bowlers are bowling too much in their comfort zone and batsmen are battling in that zone only. There is no attempt to bring them out. They are like Abhimanyu caught in that chakravyuh hoping that they will somehow defend and survive this relentless attack. There are 2 aspects to this issue. First one about team strategy - is that causing an issue or is there a lack of strategy which is confusing them. If that's the case then it can be fixed and has to be fixed soon. 2nd in purely from batsman pov that Vijay has certainly lost his defence with age and is unable to compensate that with shots. There isn't much solution for this scenario, he has to call it a day. If Dhawan isn't looking good even in nets, then doubt he will get many chances. So, Rahul is trying to figure out what will work. These are the scenarios which can be fixed by 1. A good batting consultant - which India don't have 2. Ample practice - which they aren't doing He has survived most number of deliveries after Kohli and looks like only one who can spend 2 hours at the crease. Although India need better batting from him, but in current scenario it seems he is the best option we have. A batsman who can actually give them hope of seeing the old ball. He has been worst of all so far imo. So everything could be contributing to it 1. Insecurity 2. Uncertainity/lack of clarity 3. Lack of practice 4. Not enough guidance http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/24363213/sans-virat-kohli-where-india-backbone

    From bragging a lot pre-series to begging for sympathy now. What a transformation! Kohli should pick some new players and keep the same XI for an entire series to gain back some credibility. He deserves blame for the team turning into a bunch of insecure mental midgets led by a control freak.

    One of the sport analyst and anchor of newz chnl aaj tak with 0 cricketing acumen, he is also a passive dhoni chamcha, he sometimes gets hyper and fights with Pakistani experts sitting in the Delhi studio and sometimes offer them sweets, during wt2014 final vs srilanka he came out with group of Punjabi bhangra dancer in the studio he was overconfident of India's victory, said its just a srilanka and we will win it easily only to be looked like a fool after the match. To answer you in short terms he is @Rasgulla the bot of aaj take.

    you know this is all relative. why are others failing because of conditions and in same conditions, he outbatted them and even outbowled main bowlers. You cant ask more than that he is out numbering both specialist bats and bowlers. If others succeed, he will succeed better. Example Afghan test where he played an important innings after the middle order collapsed. what did Stokes and Woakes did in India? Should we remove the alrounder tag from them after their failures in India?

    As opposed to Kohli who set the IPL on fire with his astute captaincy. [emoji846] Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using Tapatalk

    Short term fix for 3rd test

    Why bother? Tell hai hai Shastri and arrogant prick Kohli to just call it a day and go home. Give England a 0-5 whitewash and save everyone the bitterness and humiliation. Go back to India, pose for ads, throw parties, and then score runs on pattas and before Aus tour, just give the Aussies the series and stay home and enzoyyyyy! Phuck de Indian cricket! Every tour is the same old shyt! I would empathize if these phuckers tried. These guys really have no shame, so just stay home and enjoy BCCI's chuski!
