Three Indian Teams for three different formats
by Balakrishna (View MyPage) on Sep 15, 2018 06:20 PM

India cannot have same team for the three different formats of cricket.Considering the demands each format make on the individual cricketers and team India cannot play same team for all the three different formats. India should pick test team based on individual players performance on Ranji Trophy but not on their performance in T20s.

Even if Ravi Shastri and BCCI together join forces and Buy Land and Property in Australia - Then also The Australian Cricket Team will ensure that they will Outclass any Indian Team or Playing XI that opposes them in their Home conditions.

So Mr. Ravi, don't mislead Indian Public and Die hard Cricket Indian fans

he was a gutsy player and was very successful overseas. He has scored centuries in England, Australia, West Indies.

Why are you raking up his numbers,point is his blunders in team selection and pigheadedness in not accepting warm up games cost us 2 away series.
If you are so much interested in the stats itself,he replaced a guy who is 3rd highest wicket taker in history of cricket and also has a hundred in ENG.So,to justify his selection over Kumble, he needs to show some good results.

shastri does not chose team...the final eleven is chosen by captain...kohli chose the eleven always...dont blame shastri for it...

shastri is our best away coach till date...under his coach era we won 8 away tests...bettered only by aussie greg chappell who during his time as indian coach presided over 9 away test wins...

Shastri was a great player during his days, No doubts. But, the way he coaches the team was not that great.. Many feel that Kumble could be a better coach. Unfortunately, Kohli is not interested with Kumble :-(

Out of the 8 away wins,only 2 (1 in SA & 1 in ENG) count the rest came in SL & WI ,which are no way competitive and their standards in Test cricket have come down absymally.

do you know when indians talk about the glorious ganguly era where we used to win away tests regularly...

dhoni has 10 away test wins...

ganguly has 11 away test wins...

dhoni has played only 1 away test match against BD/zim winning that...

while ganguly who captained 7 away tests in BD and zim won 5 tests in BD won a test in Zim and lost a test at harare ...zim

I think you need to put things into perspective. That one win against Australia in Australia resulted in the series getting drawn, which is massive because in recent times we have been battered every time we went to Australia. That includes the 4-0 whitewash under Dhoni. That one win in England again resulted in India drawing the series, which is better than losing the series.

So called best team in last 15-20 years
by Guru RamRahimDsuza (View MyPage) on Sep 14, 2018 01:58 PM

Can't even play Broad, Anderson, Moeen Ali and Shastri thinks they would have scored against Wasim, Waqar, McGrath, Warne, Murali!! Height of hypocrisy. Only fools like Sunil/shilpa supports this mindless coach

Why Shastri ?
by THANGAVELU (View MyPage) on Sep 14, 2018 01:39 PM

Is Mr Shastri, only Coach available to 1-4 result ?
Anyone could do this favour? Shelflife of Shastri, is already gone? What else is there to offer? Let BCCI considers ?
