  1. Likely XI: 1. Murali Vijay 2. KL Rahul 3. Cheteshwar Pujara 4. Virat Kohli (C) 5. Ajinkya Rahane 6. Wriddhiman Saha (WK) 7. Ravi Ashwin 8. Ravi Jadeja 9. Kuldeep Yadav 10. Mohammad Shami 11. Umesh Yadav
  2. Had Shastri been the CAC's choice they would have announced the coach on Monday itself, considering Virat is well versed with Shastri and his working style. The fact that the CAC wants to brief Virat about the new coach and his plans for the team makes it clear that Ravi Shastri is out of the race.
  3. Drop Yuvraj from the team and promote Dhoni to #4. See how he does in the upcoming ODI series in SL and the home ODI series against Australia then make a call. Should retire immediately from T20 cricket though.
  4. BCCI to give Virat Kohli two options to pick the Indian head coach Looks like Shastri is out of the race
  5. Krunal should not be a back up option, but should be in the first XI at #6. He is a like-for-like replacement of Yuvraj, a big hitting left handed batsman that can pitch in with his left arm spin as 5th bowler combined with his brother Hardik. Having Krunal at 6 & Hardik at 7 will balance out Team India so much in the ODI format. Both can provide the much needed firepower we need in the lower order and both can contribute together as the 5th bowler. Hardik & Krunal should be used just as England use Stokes and Moeen; 2 big hitting batting all rounders batting in the top 7.
  6. Want Dhoni to bat at #4 for a few series before writing him off completely.
  7. I don't understand why Jadeja is always in the T20 team. This guy never bowls properly and can't hit big either. Single handedly knocked us out from both 2009 and 2010 T20 World Cup
  8. How did Pant struggle on this pitch?
  9. Jadeja's bowling is so harmless in LOI's. Never looks like threatening the batsman at any stage
  10. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed our fielding going downwards ever since this guy got hired? How does he never come under the scanner?
  11. Our fielding has gone to the dogs ever since R. Sridhar became our fielding coach
  12. Oh great! Another redemption series for under-performers like Rahane, Yuvraj, Karthik & Jadeja to perform here and screw the deserving youngsters even more
  13. Wrong. Yuvraj Singh To Give Fitness Test, Has A Shot At ODI Comeback After Three Long Years Gambhir returning to the test team & Yuvraj returning to the ODI team were purely because of Anil Kumble.
  14. @express bowling How do you rate Bhuvi as ODI bowler? Right now his bowling average is 37, do you think he has it in him to lower it and maintain that low average for a long period of time?
  15. A specialist spinner that averages 36 is a joke
