  1. Lost last 5 wickets for 15 runs and the semi-final match against England in 1987 WC. That WC was probably only other genuine chance for Indian team to win one apart from 2011. http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8039/scorecard/65116/india-vs-england-2nd-sf/

    Best ODI match of all time

    Back in 2002, wisden rated 1999 WC semi final as best ODI match of that time. http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8039/scorecard/65233/australia-vs-south-africa-2nd-sf-world-cup-1999 At that time it had everything. SA were probably best team then. Pacers taking wickets, collapse, rebuilding innings, spinners taking wickets and then late blitz by Klusener ending in dramatic tie. They televised it on DD1, so luckily we managed to watch it live. Which match do you think has been the best ever? Aus-SA match at Johannesberg. 400+ scored for first time and chased after time. Something like that has never happened again till now. 12 years from then and it still looks unbelievable. http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/14676/scorecard/238200/south-africa-vs-australia-5th-odi-australia-tour-of-south-africa-2005-06/

    Skillful or not, there’s no escaping the yo-yo

    Because levels required for Indian team are lowest in the world

    It's not that simple though. You can't slow down in the test. You have to start slowly and always accelerate for that distance. But yeah, I won't be surprised if you manage clear the test. Benchmark which Indian team has is not to check if a person is super fit or not. It is just basic minimum level of fitness which board expects from players. It's not a surprise test either. Players are well aware of this and have done it earlier. There is no excuse for failing.

    No I don't know. They might have failed, but most likely they would have passed. Some people here are sure that they would have failed.

    Speed Test in line with YoYO Test.

    138k is too low. You need 90mph bowlers to indimidate opposition. Unless they can bowl minimum at avg of 145k for 2 overs, they shouldn't be allowed.

    Advanced fitness gets you 18-20 score. You don't need advanced fitness to score 16.

    And why is it so? I am sure if Nehra had retired 5 years then ICF would have been openly declaring that Nehra would have never passed yo yo test. Current benchmark isn't some magical number, which only super fit can pass. You have to run 1.1 km in 9.5 mins to cross 16. Sehwag who regularly played long innings in tests without breaking sweat could have passed the test. Same about Laxman.

    Kids score in Freekicks..Men score in Penalties..Legends miss Penalties.
  10. Not giving them status is like not letting any admission in college even after clearing high school.

    India already has lowest level required to pass the test. What's next? Allow players to take players field even if they fall after 100 m just because they have some skill. We played skilled Zak in first test at Lord's in 2011 and saw what happened. How did more important skill help us?

    Umesh Yadav becomes 2nd slowest to 100 test wickets for India

    ICF's favorite Ishant did it in 33 tests (57 innings). Shivlal Yadav 34 tests (60 innings). Venkatraghvan 33 tests (60 innings).
  13. Took his 100th wickets in 37 matches (71 innings) Zak too did it in 37 matches (66 innings) Shastri is slowest with 44 tests (69 innings). Karshan Ghavri (man in my DP) did it in 36 tests (60 innings).

    Manjrekar: Pujara , a proven failure in overseas.

    Dhawan didn't even play that test.
