    Thank god Pandya is not playing this match, we can atleast hope for decent batting from Vihari.

    Feel sorry for Nair

    Dhawan would then say what has Rahul done and why does he get selected over me.You can argue for anything and everything.

    Dhawan is an opener.

    Then they must have liked what he was doing in nets.

    In place of whom he should have been given a chance. Vihari has been selected for his bowling too.

    Jadeja is doing just fine here.Jadeja is doing what he does best and he has done all thru his career.He becomes redudant on unhelpful pitch not that Ashwin would have done wonders here.Ashwin has more variety that was my point and that variety hurt him last test.

    That 5fer was fluke which he proved the very next test much like his 93.I have all patience for youngsters but not for bits and pieces players who will never get better. Vijay is done thats why he regressed, captaincy has got nothing with it.

    Jadeja would have been better suited for last test and Ashwin with his variations would have suited more for this test. Ashwin has shown he is incapable to sticking to basics.

    This has been a brilliant spell from Shami, he has been unlucky not to get a wicket.

    Pandya does not contribute in two depts , if he did he would be playing today . Kallis once he got his bearings right , he just took off which Pandya will never be able to do that is the difference, Pandya if he plays 150 tests also he will be the same bits and pieces player. I rate Kohli as best captain not becuase of his stats but becuase of his ability to motivate his team to fight.He might be a worst tactician but those tactics are overrated.

    Would Kuldeep have done worse than Ashwin in last test or Jadeja in this test.

    Just becuase noone is scoring they should let Pandya play, Kallis had talent which anyone who followed cricket could understand, it was just matter of time.Pandya even in wildest dreams does not come close to Kallis so stop using stats of Kallis. You are still hung up on stats, no one cares about stats of Pandya, it is his basic lack of ability which is very evident.

    His selection is flawed to begin with and they then tried to turn him to something which he is not capable of becoming yet. Bits and pieces players will not work in tests, if specialists are bad look for better ones , no need to hoist player like Pandya into tests.

    no need for bits and pieces player like him at all.He is not that great that he will be missed.

    One is a start, it is better than force feeding Pandya into tests.

    I am glad Pandya is not playing, we need to start incorporating batsmen who can bowl and fill his overs.

    Rahane's catch was easier, Kohli's would have had to stick but Kohli has no technique to catch those types of catches.

    Rahane cannot bat and cannot catch either but gives big statements.
  19. Does this Asia cup matter.Who cares about it, they lost two of the most important series.
  20. Sorry but Sunny does not make any sense.Captain is to be blamed but not coach. I don't blame coach or captain for this at all, it is the players especially batsmen who are just so inept.Guy like Rahul who is so overhyped that people are coming up conspiracy theories on how Kohli is paranoid about Rahul.
  21. They picked up two wickets thats how well they were bowling, I am not here to undermine Pandya but he is simply not consistent enough with bat or ball. I just don't see the ability to bat well against fast bowlers in him.I hope he proves me wrong. I don't see how he is a big upgrade over Stuart Binny,who will also say he scored 78 in England and if he was given enough chances he would have established himself.
  22. He is not doing well, same is the case with Dhawan who has scored 2 100s and averaging 72 in wins .Pandya's basic ability is not good enough to in tests , unless he somehow transforms himself in good batsman or a bowler he will not have long career.
  23. So how do these stats justify Pandya as allrounder, his one hundred scored was when SL was bowling just spinners and scoreboard pressure was zero. In the same stats you showed Dhawan is averaging 72 with same hundreds as Kohli in wins, do you want Dhawan to open for India ever? Shami and Yadav were averaging better than Anderson and Broad when England played in India, did you think they were better bowler than them???
  24. There is nothing unidimensional about my views, teams have pick 20 wickets and score more than other team to win that is the basic premise of Test cricket which has not changed since it was invented. Pandya is not just good enough in either deperatment. You think Pandya has ability to score 100s.Bhuvi will be consistent with ball and bat , he will add more value as an allrounder than Pandya.
  25. Just becuase someone has opinion which is different from yours, he/they are not haters. Bowlers along with Kohli have done their jobs that is why this has been a close series unlike 2014 where they were blown out. If you think Pandya and Stokes have same ability then we are watching different game and we better not discuss this further.Stokes is fundamentally very organized batsmen, he will walk into his team as batsman alone. Don't bring other players performances to justify Pandya's position.Lot of players will not play again after this series.
