He still has to find an answer to regulation off spin. I still can't fathom how he completely misses the most basic off spin delivery. Worst case you edge it to close in fielder. How can you completely miss the line.

I reckon it's his eyesight, he does were glasses when not playing, he would milk spinners around with ease pre 2019, hardly plays the sweep now, could take a offstump guard maybe, his front foot press gets him into trouble, sachin was a genius man, came back with a new technique and playing style after 2005 scored another 25 centuries.

Those discussions can be more like putting a lipstick on a pig … More or less a useless cricketer outside Asia (unless he improves or has improved his game) 

has there ever been a case where a player has drastically improved his ability to play short pitch bowling in the late 20s from being a total newb vs bounce? cant think of any.

doesn't matter much which combo plays. I don't see any of our squad standing up to Andie and Barbie in swinging conditions

i think nether will play. barbie is washed up has been. andy trundles after 6 odd overs. just need to patient with that idiot. 

potts is average as phuck.

ollie is a trundler 

overton is good but i dont think he will play and lacks experience

but we seem to struggle vs trundlers. maybe stokes trundler will make it hard for us this time. curran did it in 2018. we owned him the next time we faced him. hopefully we can stand up to average bowlers like potts etc. 

fake shami wannabe lol.

GR Viswanath was not even patch on this guy, let us pump breaks. You don't have to avg 50 every year.Kohli's problems are his last three years.The fall has been so dramatic.


He needs to go from all formats, But it does not mean he was not a great player.

And given his fitness, he may be able to regain his touch.  But, he needs to be given a long break to work things out in domestics and train with some batting experts who can dissect and correct his flaws.  Then, one stellar domestic season and he can be back.   But, hamare yahaan, dropping a longtime player is construed as complete bayzddi for the player.  Not going to happen.
