I don't know why Kohli was looking pleased with that performance. Indian middle order again could not capitalize on the good start provided by openers.Even if one of the top three plays for 50 overs , they have no chance of setting up 350 plus totals .We can forget chasing bigger totals. What was appalling yesterday that Indians could not find one boundary in 4 overs from 42nd to 46th.Dhoni it is very clear has no ability to find boundaries on a regular basis.Rayudu has to go. With Dhoni shamelessly hanging on and hell bent of ruining India's chances of winning world cup. Is India better off playing five frontline bowlers along with Jadhav and hope to restrict other team from scoring. Pity is other than these two bozos along with Karthik India has very good team.It has all the bases covered.I really hope Gill is given a chance and is good enough to replace Rayudu.
I think we need a thread to track the performances of our batsmen, just like we do with pacers. Indian batters had put up a spirited fight on a minefield in Johannesburg 2018 against Rabada, Philander, Morkel and Ngidi and we won. Kohli 54 and 41 Rahane 48 Pujara 50 Vijay batted for 127 balls in the 2nd innings Bhuvi 30 and 33 Shami 27 Where has that fight gone now ? No one is fighting apart from Kohli. We should think back about this test ... develop belief ... and fight really really hard. The game is not lost till it is actually lost !
Between Rahane's continuous struggles in LOI Cricket and the slow starts by Dhawan/Rohit, should we try Pandya as an opener? This would be my X1 against Pak, Pandya Dhawan/Rohit Kohli Yuvi/Karthik Jadhav Dhoni Jadeja Yadav Shami Bhuvi and Bumrah.
