  1. Mayank outstanding against spin. Have always thought this, one of the best i have seen.
  2. Rest of Asia XI, not even close. Good chance Pakistan beat India on their own. Fakar Rizwan Babar Sakib Asalanka Mushfiqur Shadab Rashid Khan Hasan Ali Shaheen Mujeeb/Faheem Ashraf/Hasaranga
  3. Still time for Sarfaraz to get fit and make the team. He has a lot of talent from what i have seen.
  4. Looks a great prospect. Bowls 135-140 - gets bounce, accurate and can bat. At worst he can be in the XI as a bowling all-rounder and Australia can play a 6+5 combination.
  5. Irfan Pathan. More a question to others as i did not have access to India matches when he came through. Could he have had a better test career, did he do his talent justice?
  6. Bad performances but India do not have a good T20 team have not done so for years. Lack of power hitters (cannot have Virat, Rohit and KL in the same XI). Lack of penetration in the bowling attack. Incredible Siraj was not selected. Think a leg-spinner is needed, Bishnoi should be given a go. Avesh Khan perhaps deserves a go. Shami is not a T20 bowler and gets hit at the death. Bhuvi is just a run-saving option at international level.
  7. Lords 11km (Southgate - 3 km but assuming we are talking about test venues)
  8. He'll be back, just needs a break. Lost his father after a long battle with cancer. Had to deal with some negative media regarding his fathers illness and the way he plays the game, it is bound to take a toll mentally and physically. Has been missed a lot in this series. Not sure he will be at the Ashes, not an expert but Australia's quarantine and lockdown measures seem quite dranconian from what i have read on twitter.
  9. Agreed with the superior application. However, Root's captaincy and England's bowling plans in the Lord's test was a definite error on England's part rather than the application and skill of Bumrah and Shami. In this test, England were cruising and Moeen threw his wicket away, England definitely failed to capitalise on favourable batting conditions. India have shown great application but England have blown some big chances. India have done similar things at times as well.
  10. Superior catching. Slightly more balanced batting line-up. Root’s bad captaincy. Both teams have played loose shots but India have had slightly more application. Really think England have thrown away this series: - bowled in more favourable conditions. - threw away the Lord’s test with awful bowling to tailenders. - missed a chance to bat India out of the game here on day 2.
  11. Should England not just play Root at 3, Pope at 4, Bairstow at 5, possibly Woakes at 6. Best chance of winning and assuming they aren't overly aggressive and lose wickets going for quick runs, can play for a draw.
  12. Chahar Siraj Bumrah Bhuvi Jadeja as the spinner Tail might be too long. Would not have Shami in the squad
  13. Always thought the same when Yusuf Pathan was in the team (Hardik obviously levels above him). Would be a good weapon, especially when India have started well
  14. Shami is not a good T20 bowler if he has to bowl at the death. Not sure how India can get him in the XI and avoid bowling him at the death without having a weak tail.
