  2. Jadeja-Ashwin aren't just spinners. They are all-rounders. I have more faith in Jadeja's batting than Vihari's. Ashwin isn't far behind either. Jadeja 2.0 can play as a batsman alone in our lower middle order. And Ashwin can be much more useful than a 4th seamer who can't bat.

  3. :) he is from balochistan I think. Yes when it becomes independent from pakistan definitely you can have test status. Dont worry BCCI will make sure of it and also host your team for 3 t20s and 3 odi s…

  6. Rubbish. Kuldeep did well in that one match in Sydney where he was good. In 2021 Sundar averaged 42.25 Ashwin 28.83 and Jadeja 15.00. In 2018 Vihari averaged 47 Ashwin 24.83 and Jadeja 28.57. There is no comparison.

  7. I think the boat has already passed for Rohit. When I think of best test players with less than 20 hundreds in modern era, the names that come to mind are Pujara, Elgar, Latham, Azhar Ali, Matthews etc. None anywhere close to ATG. If I look for great ODI player who have 20+ test hundreds to their name, then there is Kohli, de Villiers, Taylor (almost there) and Warner. I am not sure if Warner and Taylor are even considered as ATG among them. Rohit is comfortably behind them all in tests.

  9. Have big hopes for Siraj in these conditions. This is perfect for his length. Ishant only concern is fitness. Not easy to come back to full match fitness for a fast bowler after a long layoff once you hit 30. Also we need to be wary that all our prime bowlers Ishant,Shami and Umesh are 30+ now. Looks like Bhuvi is done from real cricket. need to start developing a pool. It took us a while to get this dream combo.

  10. @zen whom do you want to remove? Jadeja or Ashwin. Ashwin is best spinner in the world, so he will play. Jadeja is among top 4 batsmen for India, so he has to play: Overall figures Player Span Mat Inns NO Runs HS Avehttp://i.imgci.com/espncricinfo/blackArrowDown.gif BF SR 100 50 0 4s 6s V Kohli 2016-2021 50 81 6

  12. Our bottom 6 should have been 6. Pant 7. Jadeja 8. Ashwin / Shardul 9. Siraj 10. Ishant 11. Bumrah Shardul should have been in the squad of 15. Choose Ashwin if conditions are expected to favour spin for the last 2 or 3 days. Choose Shardul if cloud cover is expected on most days or conditions are really conducive to seam bowling. But with Shardul not in the squad, this is not happening.

  13. so now the goalposts shift from 'overseas', to "selected ones". You are making rando broad generalized claims, false ones at that, to support your personal preference for not playing 2 spinners. Past is past, its relevant, but only up to a certain degree. What is pertinent, is what these players can offer in terms of skill and execution, for the upcoming test, given what we know about Southampton, given what we know about the opponents, and the fact that you should play your best 5 bowlers - as a unit - everything else is noise. This is not to assert that 2 spinners

  14. This is utter nonsense. Ignorance. Jadeja has bowled very well away from home, especially as 4th bowler. And Ashwin bowled extremely well before he got injured during the last England tour. His dismissal of Alistair Cook was quality, and last I checked there were no "rank turners" in that series. Unless you have some special cherry-picking spy glasses on.

  15. Also remember and think of a scenario.. kane williamson comes out and tried to hit ashwin over cover and the ball is in the air.. ball coming down.. heart in mouth.. who do you want to be under it if you have your life to bet on.. sir jadeja.. the fielding itself is worth 20 runs and a wicket.. remember the throw which got steve smith out in sydney or the catch nearly colliding with over enthusiastic Gill.. match turning moments..

  16. No, some of the best teams in the world from past 140+ years had just 4 regular bowlers & only 3 seamers including Oz! You don;t need 4 pacers - you need 4 good bowlers & if the top 4 are pacers then yeah fine.

  19. A bowler playing a test match has the best chance of getting over nerves. Unlike bowlers in limited over matches or batsmen in any format ... bowlers will gèt more chances even if they bowl a few ordinary overs in a test. Moreover, Siraj is a player who thrives on confidence and momentum. His best comes out when the captain is showing faith in him and he is on a roll. We need to capitalize on this.

  20. https://www.bcci.tv/videos/151128/how-siraj-set-up-root-s-dismissal Here is Siraj bowling in a test match in India a few months earlier ... Getting so much movement both ways even in India ... Balls really flying through or skidding through and hurrying Root regularly. ... Such attacking lines and lengths. How can we drop a fast bowler who is in such form and showing such ability even in Indian conditions !!!!

  21. As if we have not seen Shami (my favourite) struggle in swinging conditions before,each past experience is enough to say Siraj should play as 3rd seamer on 18th June Clown should not botch this chance ,its enough ,he has habit of making selection blunders maybe comes naturally to him

  22. In English conditions and based on current form, he might well be.

  23. Siraj is the only fast bowler in India who can move the ball both ways at good pace in most conditions. And bowl in good areas while doing all this. Dropping him would be a big risk in England. ( Bumrah will bowl in good areas at good pace ... but may or may not move the ball Shami will move the ball a bit at good pace ... but he may or may not bowl in good areas Ishant will bowl in good areas and get inswing ... but he may or may not get away movement or bowl at pace )

  24. Its clear that for Siraj to play, Shami would have to be benched. That's not an easy call for any skipper to make. You don't just screw over the horses that brought you to the big dance, for some marginal possible benefit. It has to be a whole lot more tangible than that.

  26. Ashwin is an offspinner, he is not competing against Warne or Murali who were wrist spinners.Murali was freak and chucker but that debate is for another day. The argument is Ashwin has been outbowled by like Ali while true to some extent but is more an indicitment on Indian batsmen. Warne and Murali were outbowled by many spinners Indian spinners in India. Ashwin after 2015 when healthy has been a very very good bowler in all conditions.He gets lefties out for fun on any wicket. So what Manjerkar is saying is utter nonsense, he used Axar Patel's reference to down play Ashwin's a

  32. Had Ishant played the Christchurch game in NZ perhaps we could have made a game out of it. He is that good in Seaming conditions. He is our best simply. Siraj is in red hot form & best Indian pacer in last 4-5 months easily. I hope we utilize his golden run totally.

  33. I think we'll win the series this time around. England are a mess.. Anderson and Broad are clearly over the hill Archer and Wood won't be that big of a threat We will most certainly not lose 5/5 tosses Team should be much more confident in 4th inning chasing after Sydney and Brisbane. Wickets will definitely start turning in late August bringing Ashwin and Jadeja into play.. Sam Curran won't play a single Test (most likely)

  35. If Rohit fails in this match and the next two matches in England he will be thrown out of the test team. That's what his status is. Ghante ka ATG. He is below Murali Vijay in tests.

  37. Play all 4 pacers. Don't repeat the 2019 WC mistake of dropping Shami .Bumrah seems out of form to me since the last year. Niggle out Rahane & play both Ashwin & Jadeja. With 6 bowlers,get the pacers to bowl in short spells with full steam.

  42. Ashwin has to be picked because NZ in all probability will field 2 left arm quicks to make indents where Ashwin would land the ball to RHBs. Takes the weather out of the equation. The presence of as many as 5 LHBs in NZ playing XI including COnway means no debate on Ashwin's place.

  43. They are actually destroying Shaheen by constantly overloading the poor guy. He plays every single game for them non stop. There is a stat where he has bowled most overs by a quick bowler since 2016 & dude made his debut in late 2018 lol. I won't be surprised if he breaks down soon.
