    Pitch for Lords

    When Shastri was a player, he was fit....... Infact except Gary all our coaches have had a belly be it Duncan (the one who taught Kohli about Fitness), John, heck even kumble had a belly. I'm not sure how does a coach having a belly impacts his work.
  2. I just want Rahul to play all matches as i know he is gonna come good whereas i know Dhawan will surely fail even if its a flat track but with Kohli i have found out that any day of the week he will consider Dhawan as his first priority pick and then Sharma. Rahul isnt his pick and also Rahul also with not scoring runs is giving this team management chances to drop him.
  3. Rahul is surely gonna get dropped. BUt i also want Dhawan to be dropped. Or i want Dhawan and Vijay to be given 3 tests and if they dont work then both to be dropped or who ever fails in first 3 tests.
  4. Its all about Czech for meeeeeeeeeeee
  5. No from me.. Would have supported if Dhawan was picked in place of Rahul.............. Pujara and Dhawan were both in same place. Happy to give dhawan this test or infact another too as that would mean him either getting finished or getting through difficulties and helping India.
  6. Im not sure on this as have seen multiple experts saying that Tendu had better technique than Dravid and lot of others. Its a myth which gets created around defensive batsmen that they have better techniques. Infact Dravid had gaping holes in his technique.

    Teenagers are no longer making debut for India

    I completely agree about weird nd bad preferences for sure. My above response was only about teenagers nd not about bad selections.

    Over reaction again. It always feel good to have teens debuting but we need to look at other perspective and that is our pool to select players has massively increased. It isnt about kohli not wanting it or some other sinster plans. its about our cricket improving specially domestically.
  9. I just dont know, why suddenly whole of ICF has gotten Pujara as part of the gang. Till last year, whole of ICF was after KOhli as for him Pujara was never a certainty andKohli even dropped him becoz of his strike rate. But at that most of the ICFers supported Pujara as from media it seemed like Kohli's decision and Kumble was supporting Pujara. But now, just becoz Kohli's strike rate comment is looking true day by day. Whole of ICF has decided that Pujara is in team because he is part of the gang. Bhai, aakhir itni jaldi kaise sab badal sakta hai.
  10. So with Jadeja coming in for batting practice and not Pant, its clear he is not even in plan to play in England
  11. So, seems like we have 1st test team already decided. Its Vijay and Dhawan opening... Pujara at 1 down and then Kohli/Rahane.
  12. Good that buddy has failed... Now, upto Rahul to make sure that Buddy doesnt play the tests.

    Team management reduces 4 day practice game to 3 day

    Team management reduces 4 day practice game to 3 day

    Essex is a flat pancake and wont help in any way in terms of getting used to conditions. All teams these days try to provide conditions absolutely different in practice matches to what it will be in real matches. Only, thing which it will help in is that our players will get back into Test matches mode. Somehow, i think we have become a forum of over reaction specially becoz Shastri is involved.

    BCCI Gross Negligence - Wriddhiman Saha

    How can it be termed as BCCI failure only? A player can clearly understand that he is having issues in his shoulder and is surely hiding his injury during IPL. Just because he is not a flamboyant character, everybody thinks that he wont be after IPL riches. If this would have been someone like Iyer or Pant or Kishan or Pandya, everybody would have said that the said player was hiding his injury.
