  1. Deep down I don’t have confidence in Sami’s fitness
  2. Umesh did well in that test against Windies. He was reasonably full.
  3. https://www.smh.com.au/sport/cricket/starc-workout-contradicts-calm-over-concerns-for-australian-spearhead-20181212-p50lvn.html Key take away. Should we back spray gun Umesh? "At his best, Starc would be a handful on an Optus Stadium deck that has been tipped to be fast and bouncy like the WACA pitches of old."
  4. Drop Rohit include Vihari as 5th bowler. Include Umesh in place of Ashwin. If they think pitch will offer spin include Kuldeep and ashwin.

    Pant's sledging behind the stumps

    He is making a name for himself. lol

    Please no Ashwin for the rest of this series

    Yes. You don't see Ashwin bowl like a conventoinal off spinner. There is a bit of wrist involved as well in their bowling in an attempt to impart overspin. Ashwin's action is never going to allow him to bowl balls that will be fizzing across the batsmen. Hope Indian think tank realize this shortcoming.

    Difference is Ashwin has high arm action. He just floats. Did you see that guy Sommerville NZ bowler. He is a tall guy as well. But his balls gripped a lot better than Ashwin's balls. Almost all offies look similar other than Ashwin. He is not able to get the ball to grip on the surface. Only then you can fizz across the batsmen. On helpful pitch like this you cannot go and float the ball from 7 ft and expect the batsmen to start panicking. In India surfaces are a lot more abrasive. So it will do all kind of unexpected things. Your variations will be more effective. These pitches will behave in a certain fahsion consistently. So it is upto you to make use of it.

    The real unsung hero of the team

    There are matches which we lost, where his contributions could have been a major difference. HE let us down as well equally.

    Take a bow Shami and Bumrah

    I have had doubts about Shami's fitness. I never question his wicket taking ability. They both toiled manfully in crucial phases of the game. When all the options were exhausted Kohli kept turning to them. They kept justifying the faith. Accurate, penetrative bowling. Gilly handsomely paid complements to our attack. "This is a world class pace bowling attack". IT certainly was today and yesterday. These two were primarily responsible. Bending their back and extracting something out of the pitch. Pace + Accuracy you cannot beat this combination. Salute Gentlemen.

    Lessons from the first test

    1) Put a price on your wicket ( be it is tail or top order) We miserably failed in this. There was no heart to stick around. 2) If you are going to pick only 4 bowlers make sure atleast 3 of them are game changers. India had just 2 game changers. If they get overbowled India has nowhere to hide 3) Field placing is a science, art whatever you call. You cannot randomly have fielders. Part of the blame goes to think tank as well. It was appalling field set right through. I should also include placing the right fielder at right place. Ishant at point? seriously? Then we saw 1st slip, 3rd slip and 4.5th slip what the heck was that. 4) When you bat together and build a partnership, talk to each other and if you see your partner is playing recklessly just have a word with them. Also remind them about lunch time team time. There are so many little things that our players don't do.
  11. This is like umpteenth time tail was ready to change course of the match. Today they almost pulled off a miracle thanks to a so-called "spinner" .
  12. Toothless Ashwin has to earn his place by touring with India A side overseas and getting wickets. This is ridiculous. Even an ordinary off spinner from India could have gotten one of this guy out.
  13. I am done. I'll watch the score tomorrow morning.
  14. WTF 50 overs . Two wickets. One is not out. Other one pakistani slogging and getting out.
