Is Rahane's form a concern? 'Not at this point,' says batting coach

Considering the rope given to KL Rahul, Pujara, he cannot be removed. Especially when he played a crucial innings two tests back in a winning cause. 

KL Rahul ? He was dropped prior to this series

Pujara won India a tour of Australia & deserved a long rope. Rahane plays one innings & goes awol for rest of the series.

This phoney's rope has gone longer than Lord Hanuman's tail

So he should be in team because he played well in series 3 years back. And the other guy who won a test and lead a series win 7 months back should not be.  Indian fans zindabad. 

Smart aleck, you can quote to get a response

I am in favour of dropping both Pujara & Rahane, it's been long overdue. But Pujara deserved a long rope because he won India a historic series in Aus. 

Rahane OTOH continues his glorious trend of scoring in one match & going missing in others. Such inconsistent performances underpin his mediocre career spanning 75+ tests. A declining Pujara still has the quality of scoring consistently when he got his touch back this series, something Rahane is incapable of doing.

Pujara also played a part in Sydney and Gabba this year. Overall more runs than Rahane that series.

 

Rahane isn't captaining so batting should be only criteria

Pujara won tour of Australia. Say what ? 

 

Twice. First, when he scored 500+ runs and, second (though to a lesser extent than the first), when he hit 3 50s in last 2 tests to help Ind draw and win a test. Also played the new ball well in the first two tests in general. 

 

From one of my posts - below is Pujara in SENA after his 132 not out at Rose Bowl in 2018. Below with players who have played at least 10 tests encompassing 3 countries:

 
Primary team India 
Opposition team Australia  or England  or New Zealand  or South Africa 
Home or away away (home of opposition) 
Start of match date greater than or equal to 30 Aug 2018 
Batting position between 1 and 7 
Qualifications matches played greater than or equal to 10 
Ordered by batting average (descending)

 

Overall figures
Player Span Mat Inns NO Runs HS Ave BF SR 100 50 0 4s 6s  
CA Pujara 2018-2021 16 31 2 1293 193 44.58 3526 36.67 4 7 3 142 2  
RR Pant 2018-2021 15 26 2 963 159* 40.12 1447 66.55 2 3 1 100 16  
V Kohli 2018-2021 13 24 0 769 123 32.04 1708 45.02 1 5 3 93 1  
AM Rahane 2018-2021 16 30 1 784 112 27.03 1903 41.19 1 4 3 71 6

 

11 50+ scores, along with impactful 40s like in this series in Eng, in the last 31 innings in SENA ... 3,500+ balls faced, which is roughly 122 balls per completed innings!

any one of the three will do much better than RAHANE for sure. 

Maybe Vihari or Agarwal, what has the other Yadav done to gain so much invisible cred? This is Eng where even the likes of Pant have had massive issues against the moving ball.

Lolhi will boot rahane for the last game .. will give it to SKY.., hoping that SKY fails

 

… if SKY fails , he will say out bench strength is not good enough and bring hahane back next test match …

 

…if SKY scores, he will say he’s one guy we have been keeping an eye on and he needs to keep continuing to perform because competition is tough and will boot him to india A tours and bring back Hahane the next  test series …

Pujara has double the runs of Rahane even in this series. Pujara and Rahane are just not even comparable. Rahane has barely done anything in last 5 years for someone batting at easier position of 5. Rahane is a one good innings a series player. He is as mediocre as it gets. He has been rubbish in India as well.

At best, you may hear that x players would need to improve on this or that and the coaches (or whoever) is working on that. 

 

 

That would have been much better. The same guy was trigger happy to comment on Pant and his shot selection. 

 

Moron should have just said he is working hard on his game rather than saying stupid things like:

 

technique is the last thing you should be thinking. This is the time you need to be really looking at what the bowlers are doing, how's it coming off the wicket and what your game plans are.
