    NareshK got a reaction from addicted4444 in Why chasing in 4th innings is so difficult in test cricket?   
    This fruitcake thinks scoring a few boundaries will spread the field.  Its not IPL ffs.

    NareshK got a reaction from AuxiliA in Life has come a complete circle for KL Rahul   
    But even if he makes tons of runs in Ranji cricket in India(which he has already done btw), there is no guarantee he will score runs in SENA countries because test cricket over there is a completely different ball game altogether. Best bet for him is to go play county cricket like Pujara did and focus less on limited overs cricket but I doubt he will cut down on IPL or LOIs.

    Talented but unfortunately couldnt make most of his opportunities. Then again, opening in SENA countries is one of the toughest jobs you can have. Perhaps, Gavaskar and to a certain extent Murali Vijay could do it successfully over a period of time. Sehwag is a different beast really, so not counting him.

    Why is Vihari asked to open ? He is a middle order batsman ffs. He was looking solid and composed in some of his innings. If he fails, this is going to completely wreck his confidence. You can trust team management to screw a talented guy's career.

    Batting at 3 in Ranji is completely different than opening in SENA countries. Opening is a specialist job and only those who have played first class games both at home and overseas as a specialist opener should be opening in tests. Jerking someone around the order at a time when he is beginning to find his ground will only unsettle him.

    2 things here. 
     
    Even if he's batted at 3 in domestics, it's an not even close to opening in Aus. 
     
    Secondly, Vihari was settling into a role and now asking him to play arguably the most difficult role in Test cricket is unfair. On the contrary its the seniors who should step up. So even by your own argument of playing at no3 being similar to opening, it should have been Pujara who should have opened not Vihari.

    NareshK got a reaction from King Tendulkar in If India doesn’t win this test series   
    India has won a grand total of 6 tests in their entire history in Australia. Aussies are a good side in their home conditions even without Warner and Smith especially with the bowling attack they have. It was never going to be easy. But having said that, this is the best chance that India has got to win a series in Australia and if they dont win, it will be a disappointment.

    He is economical and bowls decently at the death which is a rare skill nowadays. Other seamers who have played for India in ODIs in the recent past have been much worse.

    lol what ? Without Bumrah and Bhuvi, Indian seam bowling in ODIs is non existent. Shami doesnt seem to be part of ODI setup.

    NareshK got a reaction from Adi BB in Rohit & Shaw opening at MCG ? Thought ?   
    Opening in tests is a specialist's job. If team management is serious about finding a long term Indian opener, they will do better than select Rohit or Parthiv or some other makeshift option. This is not ODI or T20.

    Bumrah is in a different league altogether compared to other Indian bowlers. There is no comparison really.

    His bowling will suit Aus conditions, not sure how well he can bat in these conditions though. He would have been right for the Perth test in place of Ashwin, another seamer has to be dropped if he needs to find a place from next test.

    His atrocious shot in the 1st innings should be reason enough to drop him. He is no rookie to be excused of such blunders and he has blown away lot of good starts in tests in the past just because of his sheer over confidence and arrogance. 
     
    Vihari should come in his place in the next test.

    We have seen it all before especially in foreign conditions. Indian bowlers manage to get into good positions and then allow the tail to wag and lose the advantage.
     
    I believe if India get a lead of 75 runs, India will be in a great position in this test. But Starc, Cummins and the rest can make a huge difference with the bat.

    NareshK got a reaction from Sgattick10 in Manjrekar slams Bhuvneshwar   
    Bhuvi looks so ordinary in flat conditions. He can be economical but he just doesnt have the ability to get you wickets when there is no help for him. Comparing him to Bumrah, the latter looks a way better bowler both with the new ball and at the death while Bhuvi looks another ordinary medium pacer. 
     
    Bumrah, Shami, perhaps Khaleel or Siraj(or some other rookie) and Hardik should be the seamers for ODIs with Bhuvi as backup.
