    Yes, I don't think Umesh or even shardul would have bowled better than what he did in this test. Regarding mediocre FC, he hasn't played much so how do you conclude he is a mediocre FC. Also can you tell me what were the fc records of Viv richards, wasim Akram or Michael Clarke when they debuted?

    He barely bowled 60 balls in first game. Was not given bowling in second innings. Because he is a fifth bowling option. When your main bowlers do well, you don't bowl with bowler much. Here he is used as third seamer and he showed his worth when others taken apart. Don't think Jadeja too would have gotten many overs last game very much like Pandya when your four bowlers are doing well.

    In ODIs, you have protection on boundaries. Not in tests where bad deliveries go for boundaries more often than not.

    Fake alrounder has bowled better than Han your two spinners and this pitch is less helpful than the last game.

    But we don't have a spinning alrounder.

    To be honest, one out of 100 tests in sena, you will get a pitch to play two spinners. If team wants an extra bowler, always go for an extra pacer in these conditions, rather than an extra spinner.

    I don't think any player would know. You remember when Rahul was dropped in ODI series, some commie asked him why he was dropped, he said I don't knw.

    But when they picked Kuldeep, they knew the weather.

    I believe Kuldeep should have played India A games. He is still very raw and needs as many games as possible. Rather we played Nadeem there. He can't land balls properly on length.
  11. Whenever I have seen Saini, he usually bowls tight lines and attacks stumps but him not able to pick more wickets is puzzling to me. We will never know how he is bowling unless we could watch these games. He did same in the first game too.
  12. Rajpoot has picked two. He has outbowled Siraj this game till now but I loved Saini's ability to bowl maidens even when others have gone for runs. 18 overs 8 maidens 35 runs. Need to pick some wickets too. This trip can be better than our current trio.

    Point is Umesh isn't even a certainty in indian team and he outbowled them. Taking 17 wickets in that series. It's not fifers. Not many bowlers have done it in India as they barely bowl many overs. Example Dharamshala test. Umesh just bowled 10 overs in second innings and picked 3 wickets.

    You can go by history at least.

    Please drop Pandya to maintain Test cricket’s sanctity.

    They are playing at home and not facing anderson and broad. When England were in India, our bowling alrounder Jayant Yadav scored a 100 against them. Their alrounder Stokes did zilch. And you are forgetting conditions. India batted in completely different conditions.

    And that would have been because of poor batting. Same thing happens when teams tour India. Remember Jayant Yadav scored 100 in India. England experts and fans must have the same feeling as we have now after woakes 100.

    He played one test in India on a pitch where Umesh and BK ran through Australia batting so that pitch was not docile. Hazlewood, Starc all were outbowled by Umesh on last tour.

    Woakes and Curran are bowling alrounders like BK.

    What did they do in SL?

    Who can run through opposition on decent batting wickets.

    Yadav could easily have picked 1-2 wickets especially he troubles woakes. 130/5 to 350 is criminal. This seemed like NZ 2013-14 redux.

  23. Yes it was absolute patta. No turn as well. Historically lords doesn't spinners anyway.

    It's not even really a seaming track. In England, you don't, just don't play two spinners irrespective of the track. Because no track will be subcontinental.
