    Too much negative comments here ,kohli might be poor as a captain in team selections but on field ,in tests ,he has an aura of not giving up and you can sense something's gonna work .kohli is a pretty shrewd on field captain and works his bowlers ,field setting well .we ain't gonna see much 400+ scores from England,be assured

    Kohli was 20 when he played for India, Yuvraj was 19. And Pant is absolutely ready.  Being ready has nothing to do with age. You pick players when they are doing well.  He might not be doing well in two years, might be out of form and then selectors will not pick him because he is out of form. Top run getter in IPL, runs on A tour in both formats. How much ready can someone be?  There is nothing fan pressure.  He performed he got picked. Neither it is irrational as T20 and tests are two completely different formats.
     
    I know your Dhoni bias is coming in the way of your judgement.

    Even though pant may be overrated a bit on this forum, you can't deny the talent he has. We will have to endure some growing pains with pant and hope the selectors give him a proper run to prove himself. It's been a while since we had such a great talent. He does need to improve his list A numbers but as you can see his recent innings and through IPL, the guy has matured a lot. He's already a damn good wicket keeper. Saha obviously is the best. Then pant and then daylight....prove the haters wrong pant

    Pant definitely deserves to get a chance in tests based on his domestic records,he should be a permanent member of the loi team as well but he won't get to play until dhoni retires because with pant performing well in lois there'll be too much pressure to remove dhoni

    All these surgeries and rehabilitation’s etc could’ve been done during IPL so that these players be ready for important series in England?
     
    Shoulda Coulda Woulda... Whom I’m kidding...
     
    This is where IPL hurts Indian Cricket...

    He should now relax on his favourite bed for 30 days and get himself treated and do a bit of run only.
     
    he should come back when he is in peak fitness and not hurry up...probably not play against england.

    Bumrah is then going to kick Dhoni out of ODIs and T20s. Only Bumrah can.

    We desperately need a fit Bumrah in this test series.
     
    In SA test matches, he bowled with great intensity in most sessions,  maintained high speeds of 138 k to 148 k throughout,  hit the deck hard and extracted a lot of life out of the pitches and bowled to a plan.  
     
    He looked hungry to win the tests and never looked like going through the motions.
     
    This is what we need ... and not pacers who drop intensity or pace or don't have any plans.

    Good knock but still an average batsman, dont think thrashing some nagarava, muzubni, chisoro will change that, walking wicket against genuine pace and seam.

    Any idea why Pakistan plays Zimbabwe so many times? They can easily schedule some games with their neighbors Afg or even with BD. Those teams will provide more competition to Pak than a hapless Zimbos resting all its main players.

    When was Rahane ever considered a top player in LOIs?
