  1. My first choice spinnner would be Chahal. He has shown enough guile, spin, consistency, variations, and most of all thinking mind which is needed in conditions that are flatter. Moreover, SA only have 2 left handers in top 7 in Elgar and Dekock, so, better to have a leg spinner or a left arm spinner than a left arm Chinaman or an off spinner. IMHO, Kuldeep needs more FC games to hone his skills to get the consistency and rip he is missing at the moment. You must have at least one of them as a leg spinner, either big turn or accuracy. He is missing both. And if you have both, you are next Shane Warne. Chahal could have been picked for SL series. but our management seems a bit laid back as they are still punting on Jadeja and Ashwin for overseas tests.
  2. Kohli is methodist like his batting and it is very hard for any wild card or rookie make debut under him ahead of seniors. He gives too much importance to experience even it is not up to the mark.
  3. Gabba is always slower on the first day. it gets quicker as the game goes on.
  4. around 145 is enough to be honest in test cricket if you hit right areas. No can bowl more than that day in day out without injury.
  5. In pace we trust

    http://www.thecricketmonthly.com/story/1126665/in-pace-we-trust Long but a very good article.
  6. Still behind Pujara and Rahul. Dhawan has less runs as he played but better average this year.
  7. how? when he was not even in top 3 run getter for this team in test cricket this year.
  8. Kuldeep is Umesh Yadav at this point, flashes of brilliant but largely inconsistent. He is not a big spinner of the ball right now, so, no use playing an erratic spinner when ball will not spin much.
  9. Playing one ranji match does not make you better than any. Playing cricket has nothing to do with cricketing judgement about players.
  10. Playing 11 for Test 2

    i doubt Nagour and Delhi pitches can be as quick or bouncy as Eden. Eden is relaid intentionally to be a quick pitch. Soil was imported for that. Difficult to change inherent nature of Delhi soil. Nagpur was was relaid with mixed soil.

    jaldi jaag gaye miyan!
  12. Why cricket craze declined so much

    indians buying tickets of Wimbledon. i guess only elites do that and cricket is a game of middle and lower middle class.
  13. he id play ranji trophy. he did play some.
  14. Shardul isnt test material. does not have the stamina to last a test match and bowl 40 overs in a match with intensity. Would love to have Bumrah but i doubt team management is only preserving him for LOIs.
