  1. Forget Ashwin. He's an ATG. Pujara needs to step up. He averages under 30 since the 2018 Australian tour.
  2. Maybe he now needs to take a 10fer in each inning to lift his game.
  3. He is an all time great and probably only second to Steyn in the last 15 years.
  4. What about the 1960 team which had Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan, Sher Khan, Kabuliwala, Badshah Khan, Sultan Mirza, Rauf Lala and Malik Bhai? They deserve to be there in the top 5.
  5. So a guy who he thinks doesn't deserve a place in the XI is worthy of a promotion? While the PR slant is apparent, the intended/unintended consequence is diminishing Rahane's role and the ownership of these decisions. If we had lost and Pant made a 0, would this news have come out or would Rahane have been crucified for promoting him?
  6. Pujara played very bravely this series, was a vital cog in the win but at the end of the day, he averaged a mere 34 lower than Gill, Rahane and Pant. Dravid during 2002-2006 used to own series in a way Pujara has done just once back in 2018. Pujara has an away average of 37 - 29 in England, 30 in South Africa, 20 in WI and 20 in NZ. There is no way he can be considered better than Dravid and definitely cannot displace anyone in an all time Indian XI with these numbers.
  7. Maybe he can replace Mayank.
  8. Pack it up boys. This guy’s test career is done. No point investing in an almost 34 year old now. Lyon has owned him. He played the exact same shot in Adelaide last tour and gave away his wicket last test also.
  9. This is Vihari's Joginder moment - long term, he needs to be replaced.
  10. Any comparison between Pujara and Dravid is a joke. Dravid rotated the strike well and played the role of a stroke maker when needed. Pujara killed the momentum yesterday even and today derailed the inning. Aussies know that when he’s around run scoring will never cross 3 rpo even if the other end is blazing away.
  11. Pretty poor timing of this thread given how well he has bowled entire series. He is the leading wicket taker along with Cummins.
  12. And this has been done by excluding other batting positions for others like Dravid. This is some level of creativity to find some permutation/combination to show Tendulkar as inferior. Wonder how Dravid fared in Australia against McGrath and Warne. The andhbhakti is real.
