  1. Another year. Same $hit Ind cricket refuses to move forwards
  2. Would rather have David than imposter Dravid
  3. Couple of buffoons with empty trophy cabinets. Toxic environment. Both need to F off.
  4. Similar to football, u19 level is a poor guide as to who will transition to full international level. History shows very few make it. "Most Under-19 World Cup players fail to make a mark in senior cricket" https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/class-of-2020-a-look-at-the-players-from-the-last-under-19-world-cup-who-are-making-a-mark-1296725
  5. Jaydev Unadkat is ready to break speed barriers for his country. Could always drag back Yuvraj Singh & Suresh Raina?
  6. Not much. Having to watch an ageing team lacking in basic skills and fitness is going to sap any enjoyment. Unless heads roll and fresh talent is given a chance watching this team will be a complete bore/waste of time.
  7. Will never find new talent if operating as retirement home. Young players are hardly given any opportunities and if by luck they get a game due to an injury they are back rotting on the bench when the old fart returns.
  8. You value your wicket more and play with more responsibility if you know there is competition breathing down your neck to take your place. When there is none and you operate as a retirement home any discipline or responsibility is non-existent as its all cosy.
  9. "Rathour was also an automatic choice given that he has had good reviews from the Indian team"
  10. If you thought the test team was a mess the ODI team is arguably even worse. Horrible squad of thirtysomehings selected. Shikhar F Dhawan again. Sickening. Trundler Kumar Ageing past it spinners Mediocrity recycled Shikhar Dhawan, Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jayant Yadav, Navdeep Saini.
  11. Ajinkya Rahane(1) and Cheteshwar Pujara (9) fell in quick succession on day three again of the final SA Test to leave India in trouble as their long rope of inconsistency continued. Both the batters have felt the heat after going through a rough patch and are on the verge of losing their spots on the Indian side. Hanuma Vihari and Shreyas Iyer are expected to replace them for the Sri Lanka series unless the management wants to give the experienced duo another chance. Rahane after the prolific century in Melbourne has been found wanting for runs while Pujara has not scored a century
