    Can Pandya average >37 with bat and <32 with ball?

    I love how loosely <32 has been thrown in the OP and the title.
  2. About time someone put Shastri in his place... and he's the coach of our glorious test team

    Management must stick with Shikhar Dhawan: VVS Laxman

    Feel Shikhar adds more value than Pujara. Drop Pujara and play Rahul.

    Engand- India All time dream team XI

    English history is too huge. I'll pick the players that I watched- Cook Sehwag Dravid Sachin KP Stewart Flintoff Swann Broad Kumble Jimmy Reserves - Matt Prior, Harmison, Laxman, Ashwin
  5. Last I checked this English side was defeated by even Sri Lanka and Pakistan (drew last 2 times). Only we played too well the last time we toured and lost 1-7. Dont know if these guys follow cricket or just speak mindlessly..

    Time to Avenge the 2011 and 2014 defeats.

    Somehow feel Moeen, Buttler, and Bairstow will bang India this series. India can do well against England's top order but good lower orders always troubled us. Not to forget Moeen's bowling.
  7. It's not always about balls. It's about where a batsman can maximize his potential. Kohli can't survive if a wicket falls early. If Kohli can come up against an older ball, say 20 overs old, he can improve India's chances drastically. There is a weakness in Kohli's batting, but how he minimizes and makes most out of it determines his impact and India's fortunes. It will be foolish if he goes for glory. There is no such thing in sport.
  8. Win toss and bowl first. Vijay Dhawan Rahul Kohli (C) Rahane Pandya Karthik (K) Kuldeep Umesh Shami Ishant/Bumrah (depending on latter's fitness)

    Play Pant and Karthik

    Vijay Dhawan Rahul Kohli (C) Rahane Pandya Pant (K) Bhuvi/Ashwin Kuldeep Umesh Ishant/Bumrah
  10. Rohit Dhawan Rahul Kohli (C) Pandya Pant (WK) Ashwin/Jadeja Bhuvi Kuldeep Umesh Bumrah Reserves - Jadeja/Ashwin, Shami, Shreyas, Samson
  11. It will better if India go with Rahul at no. 3
  12. This is a myth. Look, on a rank turner or a green mamba the win becomes a lottery. If you win the toss, you're at an advantage and more or less win it most of the times. But the green pitches England prepares do not behave that way. Good batsmen with sufficient technique will find a way to score runs. Technically deficient guys, like Kohli 2014, will not lay bat on ball. Just look at the results of 2011 and 2014 where Ian Bell, Cook, Root, Matt Prior, Gary Ballance, KP all piled on runs. But our champions couldn't score much. On a cold morning at Old Trafford I still remember the horror when Broad and Anderson left India reeling at 8-4. Before you classify that as a green picth, England piled on 367 before India were bowled out inside 160 runs again in the 2nd innings.
  13. This Indian team will be shot down regardless of the pitch and conditions. If practice matches (county, A team matches et al) are anything to go by, we're in for some bloody tough times.
  14. I never rated Ganguly as a batsman even during my childhood but the guy knows what he's talking about. It's understandable that he can't openly condemn Dhoni's (non-)performance. I'm just fed up and want to quit Indian cricket given that the batting coach Sanjay Bangar (srsly that guy, and for batting) is considering Manish Pandey, Jadhav, and Rayudu as middle order players. Mediocrity breeds mediocrity.
