    BeautifulGame reacted to Gollum in Shastri - another ten days of practice here would have made a difference.   
     
    1. BCCI offered to send the test specialists to SA around December 20, they refused because they wanted to attend Virushka's reception and get selfies clicked with Bollywood stars.
     
    2. Rahane would have done better than Rohit Sharma simply because he has better tools to succeed in these conditions, moreover Maharaj wouldn't have bothered him on these pitches.  
     
    3. How can you expect batting performances when you make every batsman feel insecure about his spot and shove 'intent' down the throats of players who have a different way of approaching things?
     
    4. Bowlers let them off the hook or fielders? 11 dropped catches don't ring a bell? A bowling attack of Marshall/Mcgrath/Hadlee/Akram/Warne will lose its head after 11 dropped catches !!!!
     
    5. Shami is the leading wicket taker from our side and is by no means a letdown.
     
    6. Ashwin had 6 catches dropped of his bowling in the 2nd test. He comprehensively outbowled Maharaj who himself destroyed Lyon in SA's tour to Aus in 2016 end. Ashwin delivered an ATG spell in the 1st innings of Centurion and had the fielders co operated it would have been a matchwinning 7fer. If fielders drop catches, bowler gets the blame. So applying your logic every time a batsman gets a howler should the blame fall upon the batsman?

    BeautifulGame got a reaction from Pollack in Shastri - another ten days of practice here would have made a difference.   
    He is the one (Along with Kohli) who turned down practice matches when BCCi offered them.And now complaining that he didn't have practice matches .
     
    Compared that with Dravid who went early to Nzl to get good preparations for U-19 when BCCI offered similar option.
     
    He is nothing but a fraud and PR manager for this team.

    No they turned down the çhance to skip Srilanka limited overs leg and come early to South Africa for practice.
     
    Same was how Aussies did earlier in their India tour

    The only thing Shastri is being sharpest is being loudmouth and PR guy in front of cameras.
     
    Comparing Shastri and Dravid is like comparing a B Grade Movie with Satyajit Ray movie.

    The discussion is not whether Kumble was selected fair or not. Kohli obviously never wanted Kumble. So, unceremonious exit of kumble. Why have all the trash talks? Leaks from dressing room like headmaster kumble. He made Kumble look like the culprit while it was him who even before Kumble's appointment has disliked it and most probably had a lot of prejudice against him. He most probably never tried and yearned for his pet Shastri.Is there anything lately that shows Kohli is a mature individual.
    Also where are idiots who were sure Mumbai lobby behind Shastri. No fools it was Kohli lobby.
