    Kl Rahul is the puppu of this team. They handed the opener slot on platter to him he was busy uploading pics on Instagram and chatting with Nidhi Agarwal and he slipped and dropped it.

    Hatsoff Kohli-Shastri !

    So play rahul and let him fail in next 4 innings as well? I would take risk and play Mayank & even if he fails i won't care much as rahul was already failing.

    If Jadeja can pick up wickets, it's a good combo, however it's a big IF. Wanted Kuldeep in his place.

    Sure Rohit might score the same as Pandya and Pandya has the added advantage of bowling a few overs. Agreed. However Pandya can at best contribute here and there if he doesn’t totally fail but Rohit can be a one man army, A one man swat team/stealth fighter than can win the game on his own on his day. High risk high reward. Anyway time is running out. This should be his last shot.

    Once again Kuldeep has been snubbed.Precisely why the fattu captain doesn't win anything big, so cowardly in actually being agressive.

    Atleast, for now, we should really admire their bold decision. They have resisted the urge to play Pandya straight in, which was almost a given here in ICF. Also, to drop both the openers and move Vihari up the order, I feel will bring rich dividends. I believe he should be given a long rope now. FFS, the other openers got almost a year and still failed. Whatever selection blunders they did, I hope this time around we win MCG and they redeem themselves. I think this is the best team combination at the moment. Also, Jadeja will save atleast 15-20 runs throughout the match with his fielding alone, not to mention we now have batting till no.8. M. Agarwal Vihari (Best decision by mngmt) Pujara Kohli Rahane Rohit Pant Jadeja Shami Ishant Bumrah Now if only our tail can atleast survive and bat with Pant/ Jadeja, I trust our last 3-4 wickets to add around 40 each innings. We have been basically batting with 7 players past 2-3 matches.

    Life has come a complete circle for KL Rahul

    Debut at Melbourne in 2014 and now dropped at the same venue in 2018.And there is no optimism at sight. He doesn't even deserve a place in the LOI side but he has to get back to basics and importantly get back his focus.

    Rohit over Pandya Dropping both openers might look like a good idea to ICF. But trust me it's not a good move. Rahul and Pujara should have opened. Rahul don't deserve much but throwing Mayank in opening in Australia against Pat, Starc, and co is as pointless as Rahul's brainfarts. Don't at all see Mayank succeeding here. He should not be debuted in Australia for his own good.

    Why is Vihari asked to open ? He is a middle order batsman ffs. He was looking solid and composed in some of his innings. If he fails, this is going to completely wreck his confidence. You can trust team management to screw a talented guy's career.

    You make it seem like an odd mistake. It has happened time and again every game. What made it bitter was that was the difference in the end where we could have created history, we ended up as 2nd best yet again. Also the Eng,Aus and SA teams are a shade of what they were in the previous tours. It is inexcusable to lose to them. Infact Aus is piss poor and no way we should have lost to them. Look I like Kohli the test captain in comparison with Dhoni at least visually is charged up and proactive. I mean compare that to Dhoni’s captaincy where he looked like a typical sarakaari manager doing his 9-5 job. Also Kohli the performer is on a different level. However That should not cloud are judgement. Kohli has made some huge blunders.

    now .... going to destroy another promising youngster in Vihari by asking him to open.Don't know what these morons are upto. Preserving the careers of seniors at the cost of youngsters. The ideal thing was Pujara opening along with Mayank.

    Fluke is when you get 1 wicket, or max 2 wickets. not when you get 6 wickets. And nothing in test cricket is fluke. That Aussie team wasnt the kinds which would give you wickets in fluke. If you are talking about catches, then those things are planned, field positioning is planned much in advance. Which just watching on tv, you wouldnt know. Then again, theres no romanticism in sports. No bowler takes 10 wickets in 10 balls. That happens in dreams. When one watches cricket for years and years, one understands the work put in. And that work is never fluke. Give credit where its due.

    Good strategy by team management to open with Vihari & accommodate Rohit Sharma in the squad. Vihari will be dropped from the squad when Prithwi Shaw's return from injury.

    Kuldeep also won India a decider at Dharamshala, thankfully when Kohli was injured and didn't captain. This guy is all talk and no substance in so far as agression goes.

    If you look back at Dhoni's career you will see the great achievements he had for himself and team India. At the same time there is other side of the story too. The kind of things he has gotten away with using unscrupulous, unethical show of power and influence. No captain could have survived after the loss in tests in 2011. Dhoni used Srini. Dhoni lied about Meiyappan. Dhoni has been poor in t20I since the begining and yet he has never been dropped or even doubted. He clearly knows he is past his sale date and still hangs around shamelessly putting him over team's interests. The fact that this is the same guy who was giving gyaan of team interests over personal interests shows his hypocrisy. Clearly brand Dhoni is more important than team India for him. The purpose of above write-up is Kohli has seen the precedent being set. How captain manages or rather runs the Indian cricket like a dictator. He is just following on Dhoni's footsteps.

    Wasn't Jadeja not fit? Forget Rat doesn't like kuldeep much. So has to fit in unfit Jadeja into playing eleven.

    In terms of hostility 2nd best. First will always be Srinath in 96 Johannesburg. A line up of Kirsten,Cullinan,Cronje,Rhodes etc were absolutely scared shitless. That was some hostile and scary bowling. Inswingers at an awkward length hitting you at 150ks. Cullinan who was one of the best pullers/cutters before Ponting and a one of the finest against raw pace rated that as one of the most hostile spells he faced. In terms of translating that to results Shami has to be up there. However the pitch and this piss poor line up bumps it down a little even though as an Indian fan we don’t see this often. Right up there with Srinath. I think Shami and Bhuvi are the only guys in India who pick up wickets in clusters when they are in the zone obviously different types of bowlers.
