    You have started this. :finger: What goes around will come around.

    Ghanta. I dont even try to engage with you if you've noticed properly. Sabko pata hai tera motive negativity failana hi hota hai. Cant expect some meaningful discussion with you, which most posters here will agree.

  2. This Mahagathbandhan upon which Congressis were jumping seems to be a joke, at least for now. There are many parties sharing the dais which hate each other, if not more than Modi.
    Will Mamata be comfortable with CPI(M)? Would Akhilesh call Mayawati his Bua when it comes to seat sharing of 80 LS seats in UP?
    Both nalayaks of Lalu have already used choicest of words for Nitish Kumar.

  3. Rahane doesn't deserve the spot in our LOIs team at all. He has been given many chances but he fails to grab it with both his hands. His game doesn't even have a 2nd gear & the 3 hundreds he scored in 90 ODIs is proof of that. 

    Please enough of TTFs, try the younger ones instead who deserve a chance. 

  4. Same old crap from the bunch of jokers. They never learn, do they? Mixing up the different formats, will play a specialist player in a format he isn't particularly known for. He fails, will be thrown out & the passengers continue to hold their places in the team.
    Did it with Krunal who should've played in ODIs.
    Now doing it with Siraj/Saini.
    Honestly Shardul doesnt even warrant a place in our test squad, so lets not even talk about him in our playing test eleven. Already lost Bhuvi, Bumrah if unfortunately someone breaks down again then we'll be watching him trundle against Root, Cook & co.

    3 proper pacers + Ashwin as the allrounder + Kuldeep is a better bowling attack than 2 pacers+pandya+ashwin+kuldeep 

    That's what I wrote, I'm keeping Pandya out. 3 pacers--Ishant, Shami, Umesh & Ashwin, Kuldeep with Ashwin coming at no. 7 to perform his duty as a batter too.

    Rahane and Vijay are playing against England Lions side so they can have a game under their belt.But agree with you that our batting is looking shaky at the moment Dhawan plays like a hack in test matches and Vijay has regressed after his purple patch in 2014.Che and Rahane don’t give enough confidence that they can do well.Dk/Pant/Pandya no idea if they can make it count or not even though I see Dk playing ahead of Pant.With Bhuvi and Bumrah out bit worried about the bowling as well.

    My bad, I forgot about Rahane playing against England Lions.

    In my opinion we have to play 3 proper pacers & 2 spinners. Pandya has to sit out, while Ashwin will come at no.7.

    Ishant-Shami-Umesh-Ashwin-Kuldeep. This would be my bowling line up which gives us somewhat a chance to get 20 wickets. Even I'm unsure about Shami, I would've loved to have Bhuvi in this playing eleven.

    Regarding batting, our test specialists have to click especially the trio of Vijay-Pujara-Rahane. Even if 2 of these flop, we are going to witness a brutal reality check till mid-September. 

  7. According to media reports, Indian players are taking rest at present & are told to report on 23rd before their 4 day practice match against Essex in Chelmsford which is on 25th. 

    Sorry I might sound harsh but they are unnecessarily wasting a week before such an important test series. Even before SA test series, there were talks of team being sent quite early then the plan got changed & eventually leading to our team facing SA on the field with a single net session.

    Ashwin is still playing TNPL & told yesterday in the presentation ceremony that if he is still here then he'll play another match. Pujara, Ishant, Shami haven't reached England. Let's not forget about the form of Pujara, Rahane. Pujara looked out of sorts against county bowlers & he'd be facing Anderson, Broad next.

    The team management is in deep slumber. Our main bowlers injured. Test specialist batters woefully out of form. Selection headaches. It is like making a perfect recipe for disaster.

    Robot Sharma has played two match losing innings in 3 match series. Somehow it goes unnoticed by critics due to his century in first match. This guy is setting the tone for a loss with his ultra defensive batting at the start. Has zero brains. Bats the same way in the beginning no matter pitch, conditions or bowlers. He is one big cause after dhoni and Rat for Indian losses.



    Even in first match he scored his 1st boundary in the end of 6th over, I told at that time if we are chasing a mammoth target it will cost us. Not everytime he's gonna hit a century. Both his innings 15(26) & 2(18) were pure trash.

    While Dhawan throws his wicket away against flow of play when he's in 30s/40s, today's run out was completely unnecessary. He should value his wicket a lot more.
