  1. bhuvi is totally unsuited for these pitches as a bowler (might be worth playing as a batsman instead). umesh is also pretty bad. there are no real alternatives to him.
  2. it's because of the troglodytes we have for coach and captain.

    Will India fall short by 40 runs?

    however, that is not the point of the thread. the point, IMO, is that we could have batted more smartly and easily got to a target of 370-380. nearly all the wkts lost were due to shoddy and incompetent batting that reflected a lack of cricketing awareness and intelligence (i.e. our captain & coach combo).

    says enough about our middle and lower order, i.e. we lack them for the most part.
  5. but we can count on our bowling to go missing in crucial moments. this happened in SA and Eng, even if the overall stats were good.
  6. last 7 wkts gone for 73 runs. very poor batting from the middle and lower order.
  7. we can count on ashwin to go missing, as he usually does.

    ask the captain and coach. apparently, aggro is everything. aggro is life. aggro is love.
  9. because of moronic desire to show "aggression" by playing like headless chickens.
  10. yes, all one needs is a 100 from the inconsistent shaun marsh and measured 50s from khawaja and handscomb
  11. not that huge. aus chased around 370 against a very good pak attack around 20 yrs ago. target of 370-380 would have been safe.

    if pant had batted more judiciously, and ashwin & rahane not thrown away their wkts a target of 370-380 was very settable.
  13. all 3 played pretty rash shots. and rohit scored 1 more run than I expected - gritty knock from him.
  14. 6 wkts gone for 69 runs. thank god for our 3-5.
  15. it could be lower too - e.g. 320
  16. last 5 wkts gone for 69 runs. almost a collapse.
  17. we have lost last 4 wkts for 69 runs. reflective of our weak middle order and lower order (6-8).
  18. and starc and cummins will have him for tea and dinner. 4 bowlers = 4 meals. maybe travis head can have him for a snack or something.
  19. His strategy of going at every ball was miscalculated (heavily), but I don't think he was this rash during his bumper Ranji season. I don't think he is (yet) suited to be a No. 6, but he is better than our current No. 6 even now.
  20. Are you sure? This is Kohli and Shastri we are talking about.
  21. Paine is giving away a lot of beys - I wonder if he is in the team because of his batting.
  22. outside India, Ashwin was definitely a better batsman before his decline in batting. Ashwin comfortably out-batted Rohit in both WI and Aus, off the top of my head.
