    The rest of the team is ok. But playing just 2 specialist fast bowlers in these conditions is a very very poor decision that would make people question the basic cricketing acumen of these guys.

    With the benefit of finishing the Lords match a day ahead of scheduled end, Team India finds themselves at the pleasantly advantageous situation having a week off till the next match at Nottingham. Please help Team India by suggesting various activities they can indulge in to make the most of their time... I suggest a nice relaxing day tomorrow of shopping in Harrods & Oxford Street. Followed by some fine dining at some top restaurants in London... Team India can get some tips from Alex Hales & Ben Stokes to spend the rest of the night pub crawling... London has some nice pubs and night clubs... What are your suggestions?

    First destination: The Shard Our Pace attack Lead should be lead to the 24th floor of the Shard and the team should get Dhoni there as a Surprise. Then get Dhoni to say the magic words to Ishant.

    Many of us have been thinking on exactly this line since last 18 months or so. But how home, none of the Indian journalists felt it and have thought of highlighting it at all? Secondly, as we all know that too much power was invested in even MSD. But at least he was accountable to N. Srinivasan. Who is Kohli accountable to? In Dhoni's time we had a strong BCCI, but right now there is no BCCI. Not saying that a cricket captain should have that much power under any circumstances, but situation right now is much more grim than what it was even under Dhoni. None of the team member are secured and one can feel from outside that they all have lost confidence. And why is the media quiet? That is another mystery! What do you guys think?

    Irrespective of whether that player is needed or not. Tomorrow his wife will say "why fiddle around with these morons like rahane who look like they are just stepped out of poverty, famine or worse even slavery.. I know some solid Pathan fast bowlers and 6 pack muscle lads, you put them in the team and they will play so well even tendulkar will cry". And then... Based on anushka's advice our team for Australia tour - Varun dhawan Arjun Kapoor Ranbir Kapoor Virat kohli (c) Tiger shroff Sushanth Singh Rajput (experienced keeper) Salman khan Amir khan Shahrukh khan Saif Ali khan Akshay Kumar

    I think Karthik missed a wonderful opportunity to replace Saha. Pandya's place should be replaced by proper batsman. I think Jadeja would be prefer. Kuldeep is a wrong selection instead of a seamer, he should be first settle in shorter formats. Rahul is also more like shorter format batsman where he needs to first calm down before play shots. Too many poor shot selections by indian batsmen. I believe Shastri is not the right choice. There should be a foreign coach. It happened to us also when Waqar was coaching. Players are not obedient to desi coaches. Need to correct disciplines first.

    1. Ball is swinging like crazy and we have just 2 full time pacers & Pandya. The bowler whose strength is swing is dropped. 2. Pant was a must but we don't give him chances. 3. DK selection, I won't blame them in the current context but told ya...that guy will not deliver. You just have to wait and watch and he will eventually fail. Disappointment guaranteed.

    You need to have pride for your culture and self respect to drive changes. India has "Chalta Hai" attitude so even though such a performance should incite a change, it probably will not

    I have my theory with Dhonis failure in England. When Indian won world cup in 2011, we had ATGs like Sehwag, Dravid,Laxman,Tendulkar and world cup Hero Gambhir. All of them except Dravid failed miserably in England and then in Australia. Then at home in India too. Now, Any captain with whatever calibre, How could he be able to drop those legends without giving them ample opportunity. Please note, apart from Tendulkar every one retired was equal to dropped. In fact Tendulkar was allmost pushed. People say Laxman and MSD still dont talk to each other. Least we could do is give credit to MSD for that. So OP is right. Dhoni did gave Kohli a team without any baggage of past. And Kohli screwed it with his chopping changing style. There hasnt been a single test series under Kohli, where he has played same team in match 1 and match 2. So first 2 test are whwre he decides what team to play the series with.

    Dhoni was overall a rubbish package but Kohli has proved to be pathetic as far as grooming youngsters is concerned. His tactical shortcomings are compensated by his abilities to lift the energy of the team and lead by example, but his team selection makes no sense. Nor does his insecurity in terms of backing youngsters. What's with his love for has beens and buddies in all formats of the game? Playing Pappu/Karthik (2004 debut, life long failures, no hopers) ahead of a maverick like Pant, seriously? Did Dhoni for example in 2012 pick Venkatapathy Raju/Sarandeep Singh for tests ahead of young Ashwin citing experience? Did Dhoni go back to Kaif/Badrinath in place of young Kohli in 2011? That is exactly what Kohli is doing right now, more visible in shorter formats. I would prefer to see us go down with the kids than the foul smelling leeches we have at present. Kohli deserves all the flak he is getting atm, he is off to a much worse start than 2008-10 Dhoni and Jharkhandi was the textbook example of how not to captain. Scary times ahead. We may well play better in the upcoming matches but that doesn't mean the problem doesn't exist.

    Yea, unfortunately I have to agree here, although dhoni was dumb with no eye for talents he at least was not a coward like kohli in trying out and backing youngsters. And this is me saying it, forum has seen my love for dhoni.

    We know our scorelines in England before this tour: 4-0 [2011], 3-1 [2014]. We want to do much better than that,” he said in an interview to ESPNCricinfo. Did he mean we want it to be 5-0?

    Not a chance. Uncle Shastri is clever, he only wears round neck t-shirts and mandarin collar shirts.
