    Agarwal Vs Shaw

    What do you keen observers make of the Shaw selection for the remaining tests ahead of Agarwal. And more to the point, who is the better batsman and test prospect- him or Agarwal?

    Agarwal Vs Shaw

    Last season Agarwal scored 5 tons in 8 matches. Before that it was 3 in 34 matches, idk what his average was until 2016/17 it'd be interesting to know. He's been around for a while but was well below average until last season. If he gets picked it will be reward for one spectacular season not consistency over a period of time like say Panchal. There is an element of judgement here too, I don't know what either of these guys are like but I have to trust the selectors judgement that Prithvi is the best option for now. And it's not like Mayank is getting ignored altogether. Long run for the A team and Obviously next in line and he'd be picked for an odi squad if an opener slot was available

    Agarwal Vs Shaw

    Wasnt Thakur top ranji wkt taker a few seasons ago. Or in the top few anyway. If anything his list A performances are less good. So whilst Ankit, Siraj and others are better prospects he deserves at least a few goes in the A team Clearly Shaws performance in England gave him the nod. Can't argue with that. Would like to see Mayank in a ODI squad soon.
  4. Not a fashionable POV but Jalaj Saxena could be a good pick for home series' . He's the wrong side of 30 but from his record and consistency over the seasons is he a better batsman and bowler than Gowtham?

    Agarwal Vs Shaw

    It's precisely that trait that for me would make him a better option for now. Older, knows his game better? Shaw possibly too young and needs a season or two more in FC.

    Fiaz Fazal opening batsman

    He's opening Batsman for Vidhabra has played an odi for India. Think he has turned out for the A team Hes 33, Average of "just" 41 in FC cricket. So he's not an obvious candidate but those pundits whose tweets I've posted clearly rate him.

  8. Shame we are saying under prepared after all the months of planning- A team tour, Virat coming to play county (ok that didnt materalise) The prep was better than the last two tours . Its the inability to not waft outside off, mental discipline required to leave balls that do not need playing. I think the concept of having a camp before a big away tour is a very good one. Work on skills and technique required.
  9. Problem is the batsmen who got out unnecessarily- Dhawan and Rahane especially. We cant change too much in the middle or this series, but KL needs to open and in the next home series we need to groom a new opener, give Mayank a run maybe?
  10. Itook one or two but not much to see in them bro. I actually tried to share from my phone at the ground but it was too big!
  11. :) i should have gone prepared with a placard, feel a bit silly doing it though.
  12. F u ck you Rahane what a d I ck you are . S h it shot
  13. That was a v good ball tbf. KL Couldn't do much about it I'm at edgbaston, it's all happening here. English crowd really getting into it
  14. Everybody who has ever met and interacted with him only has nice things to say. I agree that he comes across like a wanker on the field, but off it he is a gent from all accounts.
  15. Im at Edgbaston tomorrow! Cant wait.

    Engand- India All time dream team XI

    Alan Knott was one of the greatest pure keepers ever. Good to both spin and pace , especially keeping to the Left arm spin of Derek Underwood. Decent but not thay good bat, especially by standards of modern wk-bats

    Engand- India All time dream team XI

    Yes I kinda listed it for a "neutral" pitch I guess. Would pick Zaheer for left arm variety instead of Kumble if in England. Not sure if I'd want to replace Sunny with Viru... That top three could bore the opposition into submission if nothing else. Wonder if a pure keeper like Knott would be better , got two all rounders after all
  20. This is why i come to ICF, to read genuinely insight ful and informative stuff- comes along all too rarely. @express bowling and @rkt.india always worth reading for their insights on pace bowling especially. Express, what are your views on Gurbani and Khejroliya... I know they are bit below the ones you have listed in the pecking order

    Play Pant and Karthik

    Vijay, Rahul, Rahane, Kohli, Kartik, Pant, Ashwin, Kuldeep, Umesh, Ishant, Shami
  22. I agree with both the above posts. Would also add that Id like to see Vijay, Pujara, Ashwin, Rahane and Ishant have great series too, along with the afore mentioned 6 guys.
  23. yes and Shreyas Gopal as rkt said.
