    India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd T20I

    So Dhoni is an indecent batsman??

    No logic there.. but Dhawan too averages close to 44 in test, almost similar to Rahul.. Rahul is definitely a much better test batsman than Dhawan, n hopefully in future, Rahul will take over from Dhawan as regular opener. But given Dhawan's performance this year, he should get at least two tests abroad to prove his worth before being discarded forever.

    In place of whom? Vijay Dhawan Pujara Kohli Rahane Pandya Saha Where to accommodate Rahul? Yes, I don't expect Dhawan to b successful abroad. But given his recent form in test, cricket, I agree those were on indian pitches, he walks into any indian test XI. Only way to include Rahul in first test is by dropping Pandya n playing a bowler less.

    Don't write off Kedar from ODIs.. his explosive batting, and near perfect part time spin, albeit with below standard fielding, will still be needed in ODIs
  5. That's exactly why ashwin should never play limited overs cricket again. Gives overthrows, lets the ball through. Looks so unfit in field.
  6. Don't read too much into Indian batsmen's failure in this innings. Don't predict about India's abilities on seaming wicket based on this innings. It's an old story with Indians to fail in first innings of a test series after a long limited overs season. We saw it against NZ in 1999 when Simon Doul's 7 wkts haul got India all out for 83, we saw it against Srilanka in 2009 when India got reduced to 32/4. It has been very common with Indians.

  8. Dravid was 27n.o. out of those 66 runs in Durban
  9. I guess he thought if by any means this comes out to b a no ball, he would b able to get strike for at least a ball.
  10. Any thoughts on the 4 byes conceded in a 8 over game? The blind fans never miss a chance to overglorify the person for his every move, but no one realises how crucial blunder it could be to to give away 4 extra runs which should have been dot balls or run outs.
  11. Must say, both the deciders, ODIs as well as T20, has been totally nail-biting in this entertaining series. And in both formats, it was the kiwi captain, almost solely responsible for the defeat...b it 64 off 84 chasing ~340 or tonight less than run a ball chasing 8+
  12. Do u think India has any fast bowler who can bowl better than Bhuvi in T20Is? And repeated makeover will never give a stable side. First of all we have to get out of this expectation that players r completely groomed in domestic cricket and only the ready products r upgraded to national side. No player can b totally groomed in domestic cricket. Pandya, for example, must not have seen too many so well bowled googlies in domestic cricket as he is getting in international cricket. So u can't expect him to read n learn to play googlies immediately. Let him n other youngsters b groomed in national side rather than in domestic cricket for a long years. Don't expect Shreyas, Pandya, Kuldeep, Pandey, Rahul to b consistent immediately. Give them enough matches to learn and get groomed. Otherwise we will keep changing players throughout the year without a stable playing XI
  13. So did Philips, missed Dhoni's stumping just to let Dhoni step out on the next ball again to hit 6
  14. Surprised to see Santner holding on to everything he got today. And idiot dropped Dhoni in the last game to give the blind fans chance to defend his 49.
