    putrevus got a reaction from Cricketics in Not sure if Kohli is a long-term captaincy option - Graeme Smith   
    Oh really Mr. Smith how many world cups did your team under you stunk up even though you had strongest teams. Why didn’t you resign, Kohli lost a series in which his batting flopped and yet they competed fine.

    Kohli is the greatest test captain from India and it won’t change just because of this series loss so please take your yap somewhere else.

    putrevus got a reaction from AuxiliA in Shastri - another ten days of practice here would have made a difference.   
    BCCI is to greatly be blamed for this fiasco, they cannot expect team to turn up in SA without any practice matches and expect them to win.
     
    Bowling has kept them in both matches but batting has been shambolic and Shastri is right, Rahane would not have made any difference in the results.
     
    Other than Kohli (one innings) and Pandya batting has been awful, you cannot expect to win matches with that kind  of batting performances.
     
    On bowling they have let South Africa off the hook  twice in first innings of first test they have never let them score 330 plus and in second test second innings again they let South Africa off the hook after early two wickets. You need to keep the intensity on for full innings.
     
    Shami and Ashwin two leading bowlers have let this team down also..
     
    They have not been blown away in both tests like they had been in many overseas match in past where there was only one winner after first day.

    I stopped reading your post at this.... Shashtri is totally a 'Yes' boss.. he is all about talking big but doesnt put any hard yards.. is is happy with his big fat checks.. and he knows they will keep on coming as long as he stays on Kohli's good side.

    Hopefully  no patta. Don’t want any of our bats to find cheap easy runs and secure their place forever. Hope they are tested big time and that they are made to earn every run.

    Why can't Ishant do this to the opposition instead  !
     
    He is the " same-side goal guy "  in the team

    We are at each others throat some of the time. We get into heated dscussions so many time. But let this thread be about our appreciation for @goose for keeping things fun and interesting. He is keeping scores, updating excel sheets and making it fun. 
    If I an in your neighborhood I will buy you lunch.
    Thanks for your effort.

    putrevus got a reaction from velu in Jos Butler vs MS Dhoni   
    They both are different players, Butler has more shots in his repertoire where as Dhoni is more stable.At moment Butler might be the best WK is shorter formats.He is just devastating and that is their loss to Pakistan in CT is more surprising. They bat so deep and bowling is more than adequate.

    Australia series was played in India, Dhawan did not play there , it was not anybody's fault that Rahul got injured and Dhawan who was out of the team was made to play in SL and he won MOS there and again scored two hundred in the return series where rahul failed.
     
    So they choose Dhawan who is a leftie over Rahul  and it is not a big crime as people have made it out to be and that is my point.
     
    Same thing goes for Rahane too, he was in terrible form and Rohit scored two hundreds who would you pick if you have to pick without any practice matches.So they went with man who scored runs recently.You cannot drop a player after one match so they gave Rohit another chance.
     
    I am not asking KL to be dropped but don't make him into a player which he is not.

    I don't think any selection mistakes were made for which people were making such a big deal either this test or last test.All were 50-50 calls and they have right to choose the player they want as win or loss is going on their names.
     
    Rahul for some reason is answer for lot of india problems in many people's eyes it does not matter what format it is, he is the answer for all the woes.

    Another match another disappointing result, Don't know if this 5 batsmen option is going to work, there are too many passengers in this team. We are seeing the virtue of attacking stumps on this wicket , our bowlers kept bowling on sixth stumps and they kept adding runs, 287 is looking like 587.

    Dhawan must be fuming, did I miss the test for this hack.Dhawan knows he is a hack and he does not pretend to be anyone else, if he comes off then he will score runs.

    one can accept low scores from Vijay provided he scores big when he is set but he rarely score big and there is a reason why he is averaging so low.
     
    First innings shot of Maharaj was a nothing shot, when he and Kohli were doing well, there was no need to play that shot.

    Vijay is done and dusted, he has become a liability on the field and if he can't score runs then they should look for someone young.

    All the whining I have done against bowlers but they have done reasonably well, they took 40 wickets in two tests and gave batting a chance to win both matches.You cannot expect more than this from bowlers.

    All bowlers have done well times in this game. Shami did same before lunch. Bumrah last evening. Ishant with two wickets.  But have done just enough to save their places but not enough to win the game.

    This is last Ashwin should play as leading spinner, he should play only when two spinners are playing, he simply has to do better than what he has done.

    Rohit is suffering from same thing which ailed Yuvraj in tests. They somehow think it is needed to change their natural game in tests and become defensive which is not their strength. Rohit should just go for it and if he gets out just keep walking to airport.

    What is MSK smoking, how can Pant or Ishan be any worse. What is point of playing this TTF, Rohit and PP should never play again for India.
     
    Ishant sharma should come in only when there is an injury. Unless these things happen India is not winning overseas these timid selection are ruining the team.

    What a performance by AB , this guy is a genius, he can bat for a day and score 30 and also score 30 ball hundred .If needed he can score century in fourth innings.
     
    We always end up with a great player stopping us in SA, last series it was Kallis and now this guy.
