  1. Veteran speedster Ashish Nehra has decided to bid adieu to international cricket after the first Twenty20 match against New Zealand at his home ground, Feroz Shah Kotla on November 1. The 38-year-old was included in the India squad for the Australia series but was not given a chance in the first two T20I matches. According to a senior BCCI official privy to the development, the 38-year-old Nehra has intimated his decision to chief coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Virat Kohli. With ICC not slotting any World T20 in 2018, Nehra apparently told the team management that it is only fair that performing juniors have a longer rope. It is understood that Nehra won't play even in the Indian Premier League's next season. Making his India debut back in 1999 under Mohammed Azharuddin, Nehra has so far played 17 Tests, 120 ODIs and 26 T20 Internationals for the country. He has picked 44 Test wickets, besides 157 ODI and 34 T20 scalps. "Yes, Ashish has told both Ravi and Virat that he does not want to continue beyond November 1 when India plays New Zealand at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Obviously, there is some element of surprise. One thought that he would like to continue till the home season against Sri Lanka. But he feels, it's the right time to move on," the senior official told PTI on Wednesday. Nehra was recently picked for the three-match T20 International series against Australia but everyone was surprised when he did not figure in the playing XI for the first two matches. "Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah are form bowlers and Ashish felt that it's only fair in the interest of the team that they continue. "Bhuvi has improved as a T20 bowler in leaps and bounds and Ashish said that the pair should continue. Had there not been a match at Kotla next month, Ashish would have retired after playing the third T20 International at Hyderabad on October 13," the official said. https://sports.ndtv.com/cricket/ashish-nehra-set-to-retire-from-international-cricket-on-november-1-1761599
  2. Has Karn Sharma made a case for himself in the LOI setup?

  9. Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    Thats ok if they are blocking some good youngsters place . For eg if nehra is played ahead of kulwant or sanghwan But is there any good spinner in punjab's team whose place is blocked by bhajji . Even if there is someone good, ill suggest these player shud change their state but they shud play domestic . Its important good international players play domestic to provide other players challenge and test them . Now if bhajji wud have played last game , he may have tested prashant a bit more may be prashant might have tonked him but thats how we ll figure out whats the quality of these players atleast in some way Yuvraj, bhajji, gambhir despite not having any international career left still holds huge importance to domestic cricket.
  10. Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    Yuvraj had Yo-yo test at nca thats said to be the reason that he skipped the what harbhajan singh's excuse. HE doesnt give any importance to domestic and thats been the case for few yrs. Bishen singh bedi shudnt take a dig but blast them. How will our domestic batsman get better against spin bowling if quality spinners dnt play .
  11. NZ-A From 132/4 to 143 all out Karn sharma gets a fifer
  12. Changes required in the ODI and T20 squad for NZ series

    He takes to much time to get going, not a good solution in t20 .....neither he rotates like a kohli. Already we are not getting rid of dhoni in t20 Why do u need accumlators in t20......thats such a defensive ploy. Rahul has done well at 4 in IPL and has a international 100 at 4 in t20. He has the game for a batsman at 4 Pant - he is not considered as opener by his state side or even India-A so i dnt see him becoming an opener Jadhav and raina- only one shud play among them I agree on making rohit captain
  13. thats to less a chances to judge someone specially a player of KL Rahul's ability
  14. I thought pant wud be playing in this one
  15. that only time will tell but definately he deserves a selection in next series after this innings and the innings in final against SA-A
  16. Can we beat SA in SA in the upcoming test series?

    Saha's keeping is an asset which is something ill highly consider in Eng n Ind due to later movement. I wont worry much in Sa regd keeping. Against SA bowling we need our tail to make runs as thats one bowling line up i will fear about any tail . Specially if we are looking to play an all rounder who wud be pandya who plays with hard hands giving cushion to our batting becomes more important. Our team will only do well if we have runs on board Pappu is really good with bat and he ll provide that left hand batsman to in the order which can help. Yes but Saha obv will deserve the 1st go
  17. Changes required in the ODI and T20 squad for NZ series

    Pant has his opp from Tomm against NZ-A , he has to make it count and if he doesnt he has himself to blame.
  18. Changes required in the ODI and T20 squad for NZ series

    I really hope Krunal gets fit in time and sundar clears his yo-yo test next time .
  19. Changes required in the ODI and T20 squad for NZ series

    YEs kohli has to be rested now some were T20 series against NZ and ODi series vs SL for sure, m not sure he ll be rested in Odi's vs NZ
  20. Changes required in the ODI and T20 squad for NZ series

    Rohit in middle order has been a failed experiment. Lets not go back there No dnt give raina free caps let him atleast score runs in domestic and if yo-yo test is the criteria he shud clear it
  21. Changes required in the ODI and T20 squad for NZ series

    I hope we loose the last game as well and we see some truck loads of changes in t20 format atleast Another thing- Manish pandey has turned his chances in Gold so lets give rahul all games next series and get Iyer in squad as well
  22. Can we beat SA in SA in the upcoming test series?

    1. Make sure we take parthiv as WK n 3rd opener. I have my doubts regd Saha against SA bowling 2. Take a call between Jadeja n kuldeep, no point taking 3 spinners. Call shud also be taken on who will take wkts rather utility as its not LOI. 3. Take pandya n Shankar both . Against Sa bowling batting wud need to be cushioned so ill have shankar as backup 4. Shami fitness wud be of most importance . 5. Keep the horizon of 5th fast bowler a lil more open. As in it wud be mostly between Thakur and aniket but ill suggest keep someone like Navdeep saini in mix as well 6. The whole overseas season another thing that wud be of as gr8 importance as shami's fitness may be even more wud be pujara form overseas. Actually green track wud make someone like ishant n bhuvi lethal and we can throw in shankar as well . His 130k bowling if given assitance from pitch can be helpful.
