    Pant has passed first test with flying colors

    seems to have great reflexes and anticipation for a kepeer..... 5 catches, of which 2 or 3 were brilliant. This lad seems to be the answer in post Dhoni era
  2. Pujara for once in a blue moon contributing something to the team .

    Time is running out for KL Rahul

    again wasted a start. only 4 more inns to prove his worth.

    First 5-fer for Pandya

    so glad to see him well with the ball. Now he should turn it on with the bat by playing aggressively.That's where his real strength lies
  5. just can't understand the logic of some of you posters..... Here the topic is about Pandya and you are dragging the discussion to other batsmen... Did I say that other batsmen all are doing well????????? I only said that Pandya would be better off playing an aggressive game rather than the waiting game of accumulating.
  6. ' unfortunately ' does not count in cricket...... a batsman needs to get runs .... simple .... Pandya is not getting enough runs expected of him.

    Time is running out for KL Rahul

    seems it is time to move on from him
  8. 'players have the power to decide whether to remain not out' is not the important point , they need to get adequate runs for the team before they get out. And Pandya is not getting enough runs for the team by any yardstick

    3000 test runs for Rahane

    He along with Kohli are 2 two assured components of this 'top six'. His only sub par performance in SENA has been in ENG. If he maintains his avg: of 33+ in ENG by the end of this tour he would have done his part. Another really surprising element is as to why he keeps on failing in subcontinent to spinners despite avg:ing 50+ in domestic on turning tracks.That is a real mystery.
  10. 'as per the situation' is valid if he would have remained not out and continued tomorrow to get at least a 50 by batting in the same vein.Other wise there is no point in even continuing in the team.He is supposed to get runs and I think he do not have the technique to play a waiting game.

    Let Pujara play the way he can

    the batsman who played the most no: of practice matches in the form of county games before the tests started, yet getting emphatically proven as the disaster batsman that he actually is. Now that Kuldeep who is a useful batsman at home too can play in India, this hack needs to be dropped at the earliest.

    Rishabh Pant performance watch thread

    the effect of catching them very young. He is not even 21 and hence can play with an uncluttered mind. The talent seems to be there and playing at such a young age can really help him to establish
  13. Seems accumulating is not the strength of Hardik. He should start playing the attacking game right from the word go, like hitting that 22 runs off one over in SL. That's where his strength lies and that is where he can be useful to the team.Otherwise, if he continues like this; his chances of excelling in test cricket is grim.
  14. Hardik has done better than most in this tour so far. So from that view point he is the least of the problems.That is the matter that counts at the moment. Whether he justifies his position in the long run is another matter altogether

    Does Shastri play the scapegoat's role too?

    Shastri doesn't even take the initiative to try promising youngsters to replace proven mediocres. That is his basic fault
  16. first they have to try youngsters at the first place to find out if there are Dravids or not & they are not doing even that. If there can be SRT,Dravid, Laxman,Ganguly,Sehwag,Kohli & Rahane(i rate him very highly because he has been a failure only in ENG) whom this system could provide , then it can provide more such players too if the basic exercise of providing chances to talented younsters is done.

    Sans Virat Kohli, where is India's backbone?

    the most important fault liies with this data. On one end there is Kohli who is such an all round player who is built for almost all conditions and for each format and for every match situation. On the other side there are 5 non multi dimensional wastes ,who each are not even 1/5th of Kohli in every sense. Definitely the problem is not with the first class system because it could create a batsman of Kohli's calibre, But the problem is with the team management (selectors,captain & coach) who does not even bother to try the trial and error method to find out multidimensional batsmen who are atleast close to Kohli in calibre. Instead they got satisfied with Dhawan,Pujara,Rohit,Vijay etc who are just one dimensional hacks( Pujara & Vijay are not even that, they are way lower than that ).
  18. both Rohit & Dhawan need to be replaced by 2 batsmen who is skilled enough to find places in test eleven too. With SRT-Sourav-Sehwag that was the case.
  19. the earlier this shameless mediocre selfish hack gets caught by the collar and get kicked out of the team , the better it is for the team and there by for the millions of cricket lovers across the country. We need a solid player at no:3 some one like Dravid & preferably a left hander.

    Does India need a foreign coach?

    Sachin-Dravid-Sourav-Laxman this quartet was far far higher in skill levels when combined to Kohli-Rahane-Pujara-Vijay(current experienced senior quartet).If you go thru series wise avg:s of 'Sachin group' we can observe this difference. They were such all round skilled players for a start.No wonder 3 of them went on to become ODI greats too. Such was their class .They complimented one another very effectively. If Sachin, Laxman were great in AUS, Sourav & Rahul assisted as best as they can. Sourav,Sachin,Rahul adapted like duck into water in ENG. Laxman cashed in on their performances to provide what ever he could in ENG. Dravid was always brilliant in NZL. SRT,Sourav & Laxman very effectively complimented him in more than one seires there.Similar is the case with SAF & WI too. And when Sehwag joined in that became the GOAT batting unit for India. No wonder all of them scored above 7000 runs,avg:ed 42+ with being highly successful in atleast 2 of SENAW. The fact is we need to trace out batsmen who can form a group which is atleast close to that group in calibre.Baring Kohli, no one is fit enough to belong in that group so much so that not even a single player from the current lot avg:s 40+ in ENG . For a start ,one dimensional mediocres like Pujara can do only that much how ever harder any effective coach works with them..

    Why no practice?

    that means Kohli is so eager & desperate for the team to do well & at the same time does not allow even the simplest of matters needed for the same. Isn't it????? well my reasoning for this thing hasn't been happening is just this, that parasite & moron Shastri doesn't even have time to be in normal mood to even start thinking about such matters.He more often than not is always in the state as seen in the photo.
  22. rtmohanlal

    Why no practice?

    There are 16 or more players in the team itself. And it requires only 22 to form 2 teams . Can't they get a few more promising local players especially bowlers , then make 2 teams each and play against each other some '3 or 4 day' practice games for them selves?????? The BCCI is so rich that they can even give a handsome pay check to those locals for their services..... So even this cry of lack of practice games is not a genuine reason. All these to disappoint millions of cricket fans and fill the pockets of some unworthy parasites likes Pujara, Sastri, Kartik etc etc . THat's all
  23. Hussain is right. This team needs severe criticism for the better. Kick away the hacks & past by sell date players like Pujara,Vijay, Dhawan,Kartick etc etc & bring in talented youngsters at very young age, give them time to settle in both formats and make a combination of left-right batsmen in equal numbers with Kohli guiding them. That's the only solution,
  24. BobWillis, Fred Trueman & Dereck Underwood were better bowlers

    Both Pak and WI recently won Test in england

    Shai hope had nothing to lose.That is one benefit when expectations are so low.Here these hacks are made superstars , being paid crores etc etc.It is a basic requirement that what ever be the skill level, a team needs to be 100% confident when they steps on the field. But with this team, the concerned people make sure that when ever they step on the field in alien conditions, they are at their lowest wrt confidence.
