  1. Lol.. why not T20s also?? Trying to sneak in Rahane while fighting Rahul’s case

    Ajinkya rahane is not a number 6 in tests!

    Was Vijay Shankar any good in the A matches recently? Ideally the fifth bowler should be a strong bat who can bowl a few overs while the quicks get a breather.. Vijay Shankar could fill in that role if his batting is worth something.. Yes, he sucked against Mustafizur in the T20 final.. but I wouldn’t judge him by 1 match that too in a different format.

    Karthik doesn’t even have a place in the Test side now.. And we suddenly want him to play as a specialist batsman? Play one of Karthik/Pant, probably DK to start off,. Get Vijay to open with Dhawan with Rahul at 3 and Rahane at 5 and DK at 6.

    Speculation about Dhoni 's retirement

    Many are still wondering when will be the end of the end
  5. Good squad.. if players were picked on conditions, Chahar should have been picked ahead of Shardul.. particularly when Bhuvi is unavailable
  6. Dhoni, Raina, Karthik at 5,,6,7?? Who’s Your 5th bowler? Raina?

    Epic Humiliation

    All the fretting is only because our middle order is piss-poor and there is no change in sight with the World cup less than a year away. WC win >= Test series win in England.

    Epic Humiliation

    With the ODI series done, nobody is going to remember this two months later. BCCI will squeeze in a SL series somewhere.. Rohit and Dhawan will be world beaters again... Middle order will remain untouched. Nothing will change!!

    The logic behind dropping KL Rahul ..

    Bowled exactly two overs

    MSD will score a ton today

    The sun will rise in the west tomorrow - higher chance of this happening than what the OP states

    The logic behind dropping KL Rahul ..

    Rahul can’t bowl the two crucial overs that Raina can bowl. It’s a no-brainer. Raina has to play even if he can’t put bat to ball these days. Those 2 overs from a part timer are extremely important

    Lords ODI should be investigated

    What needs to be probed is the continued selection of Raina and Dhoni
  13. one of the most lousy innings you’ll ever see
  14. 22 runs per over required. Only Thalaiva can win it from here
  15. Top 4 looks stable. Need to figure Rahul vs Kohli at 3 and 4 Spinners have been impressive. Bhuvi and Bumrah will be back to lead the bowling. Pandya will stay our fifth bowler. 5/6 and reserve spots are very concerning. With the form that Rayudu was in, I was excited to see how he’d do in England.. he’s been made to sit out.. Was also waiting to see how Krunal or Sundar perform when given a chance in England. One got injured, the other dropped in favor of the useless Axar. Also wanted to see how Karthik does give his pre-IPL and IPL form. Sadly, Kohli doesn’t want to look beyond Dhoni claus and Raina Karthik and Krunal at 5 and 6 and Pandya at 7 should have been the line up for England
  16. Now, Kuldeep will hang in with Dhoni... I mean Dhoni will hang in with Kuldeep. Hit a few fours, stay 50 not out off 60.. will be hailed for his high batting average, S/R of 80+ and being the highest scorer in the XI
  17. Yadav at 8. What a batting line up we have. Tail starts at 5
  18. Yup. T20 and Test specialist, but they won’t give him a place in the ODI side
  19. Hopefully he gets it and gets out forever
  20. Has Raina’s batting worsened with time? He sucked against short pitched balls, but was decent against length deliveries.. He’s worsened with time

    Our seam bowling reserves

    Didn’t follow the match. What happened to Bhuvi? Why is he not playing?
