    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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!
  6. :) i should have gone prepared with a placard, feel a bit silly doing it though.
  7. F u ck you Rahane what a d I ck you are . S h it shot
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  15. 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
  17. 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.
  18. yes and Shreyas Gopal as rkt said.
  19. Is there no leg spin option for 4 day matches apart from Yuzvendra?. How about Narendra Hirwanis son?
  20. I have never actually watched him play but I think Jalaj Saxena should be in the 4 day matches A team too. he's the wrong side of 30 but - going by record and recent stats alone- seems better than J Yadav. For a home series I think he can be a good option. I'd play him , Shabaz and 3 pacemen
  21. Panchal should be in the A team

    Does this test series has 2011 written all over it?

    In 2011 we came to England really poorly prepared. A lot of players past their prime and unfit. Cant say we have not planned/prepared ok with time round. With the A team matches etc.
