  1. Good riddance. Both are not needed for the world cup and definitely not for the test team. Try Vijay Shankar asap to replace pandya

    Are we missing Pandya already?

    So ur no 5 is bad so u should have a bits and pieces batsman at no 6? So that he can come and hit 20 runs?? What a stupid logic. If your no 5 is bad you should have a proper batsman at 6. Like Vihari. And Kohli has realised that now.

    Jeez are u still trying to fool people with the same crap. That was no way an exceptional innings. That was throwing his bat at everything after 8 wickets with no pressure whatsoever. He has never soaked the pressure and played a long innings. Even the 50 in England was a declaration innings. Why don't u post his other scores in Eng and SA. He didn't even cross 30 once .. This Aus series win is a proof that pandya is not needed and infact the main reason for series loss in SA and Eng
  4. I would rate Ashwin's 25 in the 1st test higher than Jaddu's knock today
  5. Openers - Don't stop with Shaw and Mayank. Include 2 backups and rotate the openers in home series so that we have 4 good openers for next overseas season. Maybe Mukund and Rahul?? 3,4 - Fixed 5 - Same logic. Try Rahane Gill and other domestic performers. Have 4 players ready for this position 6 - Stop looking for seam bowling all-rounder. We don't have any now. Maybe try Vijay shanker for some time. No 6 should be a specialist batsman who can bowl a bit of spin. We can get lots of batting all-rounders like these in India. Seamers - Rotate the current lot. They won't have much work in India anyways Spinners. Put Ashwin on a diet FFS. Very important for the home season. Ashwin Kaddi Kuldeep Vihari can clean up any side in India Keeper - Pant with samson and Dk in mix

    I hope kohli picks pandya so that you can stop creating 10 threads everyday on why Pandya is important
  7. Nope. Just go through the 1st test match thread and see the majority of day 4 comments . People were claiming that if Jadeja had got the same rough he would have cleaned up the batting order. Fact is people expect a lot from Ashwin because he talks a lot and shows off whereas Jadeja always flies under the radar . Again go to the 1st test match thread. Every time Ashwin bowls a short ball there would be 3 4 comments. Jadeja hardly gets mentioned in the match threads. Anyway guess even the team management agrees that Jadeja has not done anything special. Practice session video shows Ashwin bowling in the nets
  8. That is not how it works. This is the 3rd test and our batsmen have just got better at playing lyon. Just because We played Lyon better doesn't mean Jadeja outbowled him. Compare the pitches. 1st innings in MCG had more rough than Adelaide. And Jaddu didn't exactly run through the side as predicted
  9. Ashwin took 6 wickets with better economy. Jadeja took 5. I don't think Jadeja did anything extraordinary to become the first choice spinner
  10. None. 6 specialist batsmen 4 bowlers should be the ideal team. Kohli has realised it now. No need to spoil the balance by adding bits and pieces cricketers

    India retains Border/Gavaskar Trophy 2018-19

    Frustrating thing is if they had got the team selection right they would have won in SA and Eng too. Carrying a passenger like pandya in the team, dropping rahane and Bhuvi at crucial junctures , misreading pitch and selecting 2 spinners at Lords.. Finally finally virat got the team right for the 1st and 3rd test and see the result

    Playing 11 for Sydney Test

    Mayank Pappu/Rohit Che Kohli Rahane Vihari Pant Ashwin Ishant/ Bhuvi Shami Bumrah
  13. Difficult choice tbh. If the pitch is not doing anything I still prefer Ashwin. Remember the 1st innings in 1st test. Took 3 top order wickets with no help from pitch. If the pitch has rough like today Jaddu is better cause Ashwin who bowls with such patience when there is no help from the pitch somehow loses it when the pitch is doing something. never hits the rough and tries too much Batting Ashwin is slightly better especially to build partnerships. Fielding anyday Jadeja. It is a good headache to have
  14. Now that ICC has banned chucking ( Aka Doosra ) finger spinners have to put more effort to get more revs. I consider only Swann Lyon and Ashwin as classical off spinners in the last 20 years or so. Swanns shoulder forced him to retire early.. He used to put a lot in his runup.. Is Ashwin heading to the same route. He is not playing white ball cricket but still facing abdomen strain. This has been bothering him since the 2016 Eng series. Is he heading for a early retirement??? Such a shame. He was much better this abroad season and is on his peak.

    Not playing a spinner was huge mistake

    Very clear that team management has no trust in Jaddu . Ashwin is still the No1 spinner. And terribly missed
