    Perhaps. If this series is 0-5 or 1-4, it might have a psychological impact. But that tour is also a long way off and India will have plenty of time to regroup. 

    The results of this series will leave no impact on players.. There seems to be little remorse..

    And given how poor the performances have been, I think most fans will gladly take a 1-4 result.

    Let Ashwin first show he is undroppable. He went wicket less this match and his effectiveness in places like Australia are yet to be seen.


    A spinner should never be captain, imo, because they never have a guaranteed spot in the XI. There will be pitches where we don't need even 1 spinner, so Ash would be there as a specialist captain in the side?

    When was the last time we played a Test without a spinner? The only occasion that comes to mind is Perth 2012, which we lost by an innings

    Hypothetically If Kohli were to resign as captain , who would be your your choice for test captain?


    My choice would be Ashwin.

    The best allrounder we have.

    More consistant as a batsman than some other specialist batsmen.

    Best spinner we have who should be able to be in the 11 in most places.


    Ashwin it should be.. but the problem is the “if not Kohli” question  will never be allowed to come up

    India are desperate to get wickets here and they need to get England all out before end of 3rd day with England having a maximum lead of 180. That is at most 50 more runs and no more. Then Indian batsmen including Rahul, Pujara, Kohli and Rahane have to bat out of their skins to get a good score like 300-350 runs in second innings. 

    If England are made to chase 150+ in their fourth innings, they will go for it and will NOT settle for a draw. It will be a box-office if above scenario works out and Indian bowlers may get the English men out for a paltry 100+ and win this test match. 

    And then you wake up thinking it was an awesome dream


    Good morning :couch2:

    But Ashwin can't become one cos that would seal a single spinner slot.

    For almost a decade, the captain stole the (obviously) sole wicketkeeping spot...  What's the harm in blocking a spinner's spot for maybe 1-2 years particularly when he is the first choice spinner 9/10 times?
