    Yes because there's hundreds of Dravids waiting in domestic cricket. 

    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.

    How can we expect to win when the rest of the top order are not doing anything?


    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 ).

    There are anecdotes of how hard John Wright pushed the team during training and players have acknowledged his contributions in their growth. Heck, even Anjali Tendulkar apparently thanked him once for his role in SRT's performance.

    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..

    You think a rahane or pujara or dk can ask everyone to get together and play and practice even if the captain and management don't think it is required. 

    It is not so easy to do things that show the higher ups in bad light....or go against the non activity of management.

    This team is not so secure.


    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.

    Can we blame players if no practice is planned by management?


    If guys like Rahane or Pujara or anyone else wants to practice...how will they if no one has planned any.


    Or if the management defers going to the next city and instead choose to stay back in london.Players don't get to choose...or do they?


    Only captain and management can be blamed.

    If practice is planned and then the players skip it, then we can blame them.


    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

  6. 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,

    No need to bring Pak in discussion. They are better team in these conditions. Always have been since 80s. 


    What's shocking is even WI was able to do better. Shai Hope's performance in 3rd test can't be matched by Indian batsman, let alone his match winning performance in 2nd test.

    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.

    If someone has a doubt he should watch Lord’s test against pak and than compare what they gave us .that pitch against pak was totally subcontinent type pitch .the problem today’s cricket experts that they never watched live match just follow cricket on Cricinfo. I have watched all matches  against eng for both team ,England natoriously always gave us bowling friendly condition and flat pitches to pak.

    No excuses...because Pakistan is able to win on those flat pitches...That is the important thing.

    We had wicket taking options unlike India who are having half all rounders. Thats how we won. simple logic :cantstop:

    Where this wicket taking options hide when  you tour AUS?????? So accept the fact...... Just like Ind performs badly in ENG, PAK performs even worser in AUS.  Atleast with IND , they won in 2007 & drew in 2003 in ENG. In  AUS , IND drew  1-1 in 2004 and has far better record  than PAK  there.So why this unnecessary  dig when IND  losses , considering that your team is much worser???????

  10. get lost .......shameless  creature........... ' you were picked in the team ' itself  showed   Virat & co has been better prepared  than 2014.

    Such a shameless fraud  who earns crores at the cost of  extreme disappointments of millions of cricket fans across the country.

    If the team need to show any improvement  in SENA this hack needs to be kicked out of the team for ever. Kills the entire momentum coming at no:3 position. 

  11. To be frank this is one match where I do not blame at all the team for loosing because  of the playing conditions which were tailor a made for a home country. And that is where the loss in the first test become even more vital.A great team like  2000 Aussies would never have allowed to slip that match from 87-7 in the 2nd inns. Out batters instead collectively lost the match.

    His main job is to get wickets. He got 0, batting is mostly inconsequential if top order fails collectively.

    there are times when others need to step up for your inefficiency because of unfavourable conditions.That is called team work.yes Ashwin was ineffective with the ball .But he made up for that by averaging  62 with the bat.In the first test he took  7 wkts and avg:ed

    a mere 20+ . He has played his role as an all rounder to perfection. He can't be blamed for the performance of other pedestrians in the team.

    Because the openers are not good enough to survive these conditions. If they hit, they increase the risk of getting out even sooner. Many of the dismissals have been through bad shots (showing unnecessary aggression) .... As Gavaskar is said to have said - give the first hours to the bowlers

    means they are neither good at defense  nor playing good shots.
