  1. Playing 11 for Test 2

    Vijay will come in for Dhawan and Ishant for Bhuvi. No change otherwise.
  2. The way we were scoring it is not unreasonable to think that 200 in 40 overs or something is not a very safe target. In tests you first try to not lose.
  3. Green pitches likely in Nagpur and Delhi too

    IShant getting games ;)
  4. That Shami ball to get Chandimal was magic. Bhuvi was very good and we could have won this if no for lost time due to slow over rates and late starts. http://www.bcci.tv/videos/id/5549/ind-vs-sl-2017-1st-test-fall-of-wickets-sl-2nd-innings I don't think we could have declared earlier. We were losing wickets regularly and at one point we were in match saving mode. Kohli played very well and got us in position to push for win. Great performance to come back after disaster of a start where we were 30-4 and 50-5 in the first innings. Pujara was excellent and Openers hit back well to gain back initiative. Good one from the bowler. Good to see Shami fired up like that hope he stays like that.
  5. Man of the match for first test

    Bhuvi gets it. deservedly though with that effort in the end
  6. SL cricketers first one to resort to negative tactics
  7. Man of the match for first test

  8. Bhuvi accepted that day that they got too over eager looking at the pitch and could have bowled better. This is a tailor made pitch for him and he could have shot these guys out much earlier.
  9. It is idiotic to start matches in Eatern India at same time. They should start as early as possible (830?). We are losing overs just like that.
  10. Kohli will not declare on 100. Will keep going for big shots and may declare 9 down
  11. Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    Prithvi Shaw adds another 100. We have had these kind of breakout season coming in from Nair, Rahul, Iyer, Pant, Jadhav in last few years. Current approach seems to be getting them in some A tours and test them out if they sustain this quality at higher level. Lets see how fast Shaw moves up the ladder.
  12. Here is a question for the knowledgeable folks out here. Please name top 20 pacers in India right now in the order they should be selected for tests. Tough one but I am hoping selectors have some kind of ranking /visibility. I will try to give mine 1. Shami 2. Umesh 3. Bhuvi 4. Bumrah 5. Siraj 6. Aniket 7. Lalit Yadav 8. Nagarkoti 9. Avesh Khan 10. Shardul 11. Ishant 12. Ankit Rajpoot 13. Khejroliya 14. Pankaj Singh 15. Khaleel Ahmed 16. Porel 17. Mavi 18. Aaron 19. Dinda 20. Kaul Very difficult task but atleast we should know our top 5/10/20
  13. The Ashes 2017/18 | 23rd Nov onwards.

    Tired of this build up. Get on with the match. It is still week away and constant coverage is tiring.
  14. Pujara's is applying himself. His weakness is against short of length deliveries and real pacy in coming balls.
  15. Rahul probably got a peach first up but Dhawan showed bad technique.
