    WHere is tics/ cricketics: I think India has a good chance to win the last 3 tests. we miss this kind of optimism

    Can Kejriwal become the prime minister?
  5. Usually a clown. But his points about opening partnership is very important. That is where you break the back of an opposition. Either with ball or bat. shami and ishant should open the batting lol Atleast they will be good enough not to touch the ball

    Stokes found not guilty, added to 3rd Test squad

    1000 for 7 declared 85/55 all out.
  7. Yes he wasted the opportunity. You need a core unit that back you to the hilt. Sounds like no players is willing to step up for Kohli. He has to do the job himself.

    Short term fix for 3rd test

    Artifician rain for 5 days.

    Is Ashwin the best choice for captain in Tests?

    Vice-captain would be a good choice. He is good in that role rather than Captain. The captain shouldn't have the capacity to think too much lol Sometimes it works against you.
  10. He had an opportunity to build a nucleus that will go the extra distance. There is a clear lack of vision. He should have just adopted Dhoni's method "Yes we are aware we can't play swing. It is what it is" lol

    Flashback to Leeds test 16 years ago - This Happened

    why go that far. Most recent tour when Dravid was on his last legs scored 3 centuries and put up an exhibition on how to play swing bowling. These frontfoot plonkers have no clue against swinging balls in the channel even if it comes at 78 mph.
  12. He deserves a look with our oh so fragile bowlers. India needs a solid bench. This pissant like a pest continues to be part of our XI.

    Time to relegate Vijay and Karthik to TNPL

    Both should retire. DK's consistent performances in the domestic made me wonder if he turned a corner. But Rubel Hossein has done more damage than we can imagine.
  14. Pathetic. Kohli is the only one who does something in these parts. Rest are all crap.

    Ashwin - Top scorer in both the innings !!!

    Ishant as an opening bowler is such a travesty. We don't have bankable seamers anyway. Not like Bumrah/Bhuvi are bankable. We mostly depend on one guy clicking in an innings and others chipping in. There is no one bowler that consistently threaten a team in a series. Having said that they have done a commendable job over the last few years.

    Ashwin - Top scorer in both the innings !!!

    They played 2 spinners. Could have played just Ashwin. Besides Ashwin was the highest wicket-taker in the last match. A match where England hardly used a spinner. What if suddenly Lords start offering some turn and you don't have a spinner. If you are going to kick Ashwin out for not taking wickets you should kick the entire batting line up bar Kohli for not scoring runs. He was the only one who scored runs.

    Ashwin - Top scorer in both the innings !!!

    I don't think there was a dramatic shift in weather condition. I bet Anderson would have done well. We are talking about Ishant sharma, pandya who cannot exploit the conditions even if you have millions of clouds. No disrespect to Shami. Shami is not the traditional swing bowler we are talking about. It is more the style bowling rather than conditions. Someone like Deepak chahar would have been more effective. That is where we are. We don't have reasonably complete bowlers. Broad is an accurate seam bowler. Woakes can be a handful as well. They did not even have Stokes.

    Pick your team for 3rd test

    These are far from bouncy conditions. Atleast in bouncy conditions you can leave the ball on length. Here you have no chance. Too many lbws and bowleds.

    Pick your team for 3rd test

    so that he can drop a few, hack a few runs and end up with a net contribution of -50 .
  20. vvvslaxman

    Pick your team for 3rd test

    But we had conditions no one to exploit. With Duke ball going to England without swing bowlers put us at a great disadvantage.
  21. Ruble hossein KKR all played some role in that- I expected little fight. This is mother of all eff ups by KKD. Couple of 50 here he would have cemented his place for a while. On the bright side now we can fast track Pant or any other keeper without reservation.

    England will come harder at us

    Don't expect another lightning where Ishant gets 3 gun wickets in one over. Imagine those folks clicking. They have a long brutish batting line up. Running through them will be one hell of a task without helpful conditions. Our Indian batsmen morons just had to step up big for 2 sessions. That was all they needed. Nothing could get easier than this. If the conditions are batsmen friendly they are more powerful than us. With psychological scars we could fold even on flat decks. Lots and lots of character is needed for the rest of the series.

    Does India need a foreign coach?

    Probably is Shastri not being a foreign coach. Problem is him not being a Coach.
  24. Better prepared for shopping lol Instead of playing 2 extra days they can use it for shopping
  25. Agreed. If not for anything India should send a strong message to the players. Not like they get out because of bad luck. THeir core skill is suspect.
