  1. 1st Test, Sri Lanka tour of India at Kolkata, Nov 16-20 2017

    @Cricketicswill troll us now Hold the press! Kohli has a slip catch!
  2. 1st Test, Sri Lanka tour of India at Kolkata, Nov 16-20 2017

    Even this guy is a better slip fielder than Dropohli and Dhawan
  3. 1st Test, Sri Lanka tour of India at Kolkata, Nov 16-20 2017

    Yes, those 3 are our best bets. Make them practise a lot and get them even better.
  4. 1st Test, Sri Lanka tour of India at Kolkata, Nov 16-20 2017

    You dont need to have six packs for slip catching, un-athletic guys like Warne, Laxman, Dravid, Mark Waugh are the ones who were good at slips. Ashwin again is not great, but decent compared to likes of Dropohli and Dhawan. Vijay is good too (again comparative to others in the team) So my slip cordon for the three slips would be Rahane at 1st, Vijay and Ashwin at 2 and 3.
  5. 1st Test, Sri Lanka tour of India at Kolkata, Nov 16-20 2017

    Ashwin, Rahane and Vijay are decent, they don't drop as many as Dropohli or Dhawan.

    Bhuvi is the man!
  8. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Interesting regarding Shardul - Do you not see him develop like a Shami type bowler in tests?
  9. Kohli pick KL Rahul - so much for ICF conspiracies

    Dhawan and Rohit should not be in test squad let alone XI. Le them please be ODI specialists like we have Vijay and Pujara as Test specialists.
  10. Kohli pick KL Rahul - so much for ICF conspiracies

    Fully agree. To add, if we have Pujara, Ashwin and Jadeja in XI and fill the other 8 spots with random Ranji performers we will still win majority of our subcontinent matches. It is overseas where we are struggling, and we need players who do well overseas in team not just home flat track bullies. Vijay is indispensable to the team in terms of number of balls he faces shielding the middle order. There was a stat that he played the most number of balls in team during our combined SA/Eng/Nz/Aus last tour cycle. That was the main reason the middle order were able to score runs and compete. Today is another example, the openers getting out early without facing much balls meant Kohli was in early facing the new ball and failed.
  11. Look at your career before commenting on Dhoni: Shastri

    Probably Shastri and Kohli are saying the same thing to poor chief selector MSK Prasad- “Look at your career before thinking of dropping Dhoni. You had a batting average of 19.”
  12. Look at your career before commenting on Dhoni: Shastri

    Shastri the PR Bot... Will say whatever has been programmed into it!
  13. Hardik Pandya rested for Sri Lanka Tests

    Well, that's the standards set for getting into our test squad. That's the difference between getting into a no.1 ranked and no.7 ranked test team I guess.
  14. Hardik Pandya rested for Sri Lanka Tests

    Even our benched players like Karun Nair have test 300s, and Azhar Ali is one of your top test bats
  15. Sri Lanka Take on Board President's XI in Warm-up Game

    Well, 60+ are a lot of matches. On what criteria should he be played in ODIs then? If it's on basis of his FC performances then there are so many others still ahead of him performing consistently and way better than Samson. He had a couple of good IPL seasons, barring which has been inconsistent. There are so many other youngsters who deserve a chance before him IMO.
