    This guy was part of all our overseas tour from 2012 to 2014.. You name it. Australia, England, South Africa and New Zealand.. We played on greenest pitches in all those overseas tours... we had all the legends get out to opposition fast bowlers but this dud of a pathetic bowler who was leading attack in all those attacks, didn't do a jack aside from that Lords test where he just got lucky when all the pulls and hooks went to fielders... and people starting calling him a unlucky matchwinner.. this guy is the most useless bowler to ever play for India... but our fans and selectors don't see that... atleast IPL teams have realized that this pathetic guy was part of 7 of 8 ipl teams that was in bottom 2 for 8 ipl seasons... and finally IPL teams stopped selecting this guy.. but this unlucky tag will stick with the selectors and he will continue to play for india... sad part is, before every series, he calls himself 'leader of the pace attack' and says how he will groom other bowler..I find that so funny

    @cricketaakash FollowFollow @cricketaakash More The state of Zimbabwe cricket is, once again, forcing us to ask the question--why and how runs/wickets against seriously weak teams are given equal weightage as International runs/wickets vs must stronger teams?? Shouldn't there be a system to differentiate both... 3:29 AM - 22 Jul 2018 This is what I have been saying for a year that cricket averages done the way they are done now mean nothing. You get no valuable information from them. So those of you who flash that stuff in front of me now you understand why I dont value your opinion.

    This is single most pathetic record. I don't know how any team can expect to win matches with catch drop rate higher than 50%. What's worse we have seen was Dhawan (another serial dropper) fielding at slips even when Rahane was in team. Only thing that can explain that farce is that Kohli wants to talk to his buddy.

    It's sole criterion of fitness atm. And moreover passing score is way too low. Should be higher.

    It doesn't get equal weightage in ranking. If he is talking about the overall stats, then isn't it how all sports work. You don't count goals against weak opposition as 0.5 goals, it's 1 against everyone. What is he talking about?

    Select the right team and not just Kohli's friends.

    Its not a sole selection criterion. Is it ? However with players like Chahal clearing it, seems to be a farce.

    Deepak Chahar Shardul Thakur KM Asif Can all bat and bowl. Can hit down the order. Ok not sure of Asif but other two are proven match winners with bowl and bat and won the most recent major trophy

    @Gollum you were talking about match ka mujrim while Bedi used to be relentless on Ganguly or even on other players do you remember how Kirmani used to defend them Dekhie paji ye ek aisa mahan khiadi hai jisne desh k lie bahut kuch kia hai . Bedi used to reply him with something like to ab kya kar raha wo ye dekho present ki bat karo ab batao na kya kia hai he should be kicked out.

    Is sacred games... Hinduphobic?

    Hindu phobic or not, I'm not a big fan of Anurag Kashyap movies/series. He sells violence in the name of realism, way too much focussed on negatives of the society. Having said that, I'm not questioning his skills, he is very good at what he does.

    For Sachin to make a statement as illinformed as this in 2018 shows how the game has passed him by. Yo-Yo should not be the sole criteria but there has to be a minimum yo-yo standard they have to achieve. The standard they have set is not so high either. I always bring baseball but that is to show level of professionalism. Allmost all of the baseball batters can run 60 yards in less than 7 seconds and base fielders pretty much can throw the balls at 90 + mph. Sachin needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

    Sachin has been possessed recently. Saying all the right things without being his usual diplomatic non confronting self.

    Yoyo is the minimum they should be able to pass...but they should have other skill test too like catching and fielding .The result should be based on the average score of all. What is the use of passing yoyo but dropping every second catch or fielding like jadhav.

    Template for good overseas tour is fixed for Indian team. Batsman need to score big. 300-350 won't work unless it's too much bowling friendly conditions. Scoring big doesn't mean one batsman scoring 110 and rest just chipping in with 30-40s. Batsmen have to get real big 100s with big partnerships and ensure that game doesn't go out of control. Saving at least 2 tests. Spinners taking wickets consistently. Can't have figures of 120-1. A bowling figure of 90-2 or 50-1 is still good. Can't go wicketless, no matter what have to pick 1-2 wickets each even on tough day. Pacers need to have at least 1 lucky test, can't remain just good whole series. No matter if they go for 500 in some tests, 2-3 days good days are enough to define the series score as long as batsmen save the games. Need 5-fers from pacers on those days. Tailender can't go out for paltry totals. 30-5 is way too dangerous, there is huge difference between 2 runs by a tailender and 20 runs by some lucky slogging. Like if team is 320-6, ensure they cross 400 and not get bowled out for 350. Need to hold all catches and if possible take some blinders at crucial moments.
