So, according to the cricbuzz article https://www.cricbuzz.com/live-cricket-scores/38582/ind-vs-nz-1st-test-new-zealand-tour-of-india-2021, only one of Siraj or Umesh will play along with Ishant in the final XI.

I will pick Siraj over Umesh for the sheer strides that Siraj has made in the recent past.

Umesh is good too but we cannot pack three pace bowlers for a test match in India.


Who do you think should play in the Kanpur test match?

Umesh is better than Siraj, no question about that . He is the most underrated fast bowler to play for India in recent times , every test is a trial match for him. 

It is so sad. Dude averages 23 in India. 

He is criminally underrated and criminally unused oversea too. 

 

He barely played in England. Averages 24 there. He only has issues with kookaburra ball which he has worked on.

Umesh should play. 

 

Also why does Ishant needs to play ?? If Umesh played that many tests, he would have taken more wickets than Ishant.  I know Umesh is called spray gun but his strike rate is 50 compared to 61 of Ishant. That is a huge difference. Umesh also averages better than Ishant overall.

 

At this point Siraj should play all our tests when fit.

 

I have no generic issue with Ishant when others are not available but he is definitely a no.5 choice after Bumrah, Siraj/Shami, Umesh.. Hell he should retire gracefully. 311 wickets in 104 tests is nothing to brag about.

Are you related to Ishant or something? The guy's a *ing liability these days, not to mention he was shite in India always!

Agree, had Umesh played that many tests as Ishant did, he would have been one of the best among the current fastmen in the world by now, he had the potential . Ishant started his career at a very young age ,  I remember everyone in India got excited when they say a very tall fast bowler in under 19 team, hence he was fast tracked . Ishant could have done better than 311 wickets in 104 tests . He has everything for a fast bowler, very good height, good runup and action and decent pace, but learnt to put the ball at right spot after many many tests.  Umesh learnt this art much quicker. Being a fast bowler myself during my days of club cricket, I like Umesh's runup and action the most among the Indian fast bowlers of recent time . My other favorites with good action are Saini and young Tyagi .

Oh ok, now I can understand how we won in Aus. 

 

Kohli picks team even when Rahane is the captain (as you said) and that's why we won in Australia. 

Thanks.

The GOAT asian captain for a reason. 

 

Hypocrisy at its best. 

 

Huge difference in Kohli leaving a country compared to taking the first test off.

 

No, I dont give a f**k who any player plays for which IPL.

 

Kohli is finished.
