  1. Disclaimer: I really like Ashwin and think he's a good guy and excellent cricketer. I am also against ex-cricketers undermining current cricketers. Although, purely on an academic point, the fact that the likes of Joe Root, Jack Leach and Akshar Patel can rock up on bag five-fors willy nilly lends huge weight to the argument that Ashwin/Jadeja's amazing home record has been significantly enhanced by helpful bowling wickets c.f. 2010 test series at home vs NZ where Kane Williamson (debutant who later struggled in India when it started to turn) and Bhaji himself were getting hundreds.
  2. What would be the best XI to overturn the might of India at home? My thoughts: Azhar Ali Kane Williamson (c) Joe Root Steve Smith Barbar Azam Shakib Al Hasan Mushfiqur Rahim (wk) Pat Cummins Nathan Lyon KG Rabada James Anderson
  3. Agreed best batsmen on current form. Playing multiple clutch knocks recently under a lot of pressure in difficult batting conditions
  4. Give insecure haters an inferiority complex XI (would need to draft in VK as captain)
  5. Funny how Indian bowlers started reviving their own careers all under Virat’s captaincy. Wonder if Virat got anything to do with it.
  6. Errr yeah. No other captain in Indian history done the same, so “any other captain would do the same” is a ridiculous statement
  7. Kohli also helped revive the career of Ishant, enabled Shami and Umesh to ascend to new heights. Introduced Bumrah to test cricket. As a bowlers captain he has a great record, maybe even the greatest record in India test history. But yet it has to be acknowledged that he hasn’t contributed to the development of a single test batsmen.
  8. His early career was ruined by over bowling him in ODIs, t20s early on and placing too much expectation on him followed WACA spell to Ponting. Then there was MSD’s test captaincy. Had he walked into a today type set up from day 1 I’m sure he’d be closely player to McGrath India ever produced (although not as good as that guy)

  10. In the universe where the word attack = all of the bowlers combined and not individual players. Let me know which one you’re living in.
  11. Imran Nazir KL Rahul Ravi Bopara Rohit Sharma Marlon Samuels Vinod Kamble Dinesh Karthik (wk) J Pattinson Wahab Riaz Shoaib Akhtar Sreesanth All of these guys could have been amazing players but were all too inconsistent.
  12. Barbar Azam is a special talent, he’d make into the current Indian test lineup. He has the quality that many of the greats had of being able to punish even the good balls, like Sachin, VVS and Lara had.
