Just Preserve Kohli for limited overs
by Jomesh George on Nov 18, 2013 03:59 PM  | Hide replies

VK is arguably the best limited overs batsman during chase.So pls preserve him for ODIs and T20s.He should not be a regular in the test team.S Badrinath is a test prospect and should be included in the test XI.

Total votes- 4642 3080 841 = 8563
While it says- total votes- 7722.. ????

Percentage- 60 39 10 = 109% (More than 100%)
Where is the maths here?

by samudra blr on Nov 18, 2013 10:54 AM

Till India find's a replacement, Dravid can take the slot.

could have played atleast another 20 tests.
He never dropped catches like dravid ,had fitness problem like laxman or was out of form like ganguly just before retirement.Sachin was THE fittest cricketer to call it off.Kudos my Sachin.

i liked ur 5 batsman idea n opener as rahane. but i wud add jadeja in place of ojha not merely as all rounder but purely as a bowler. taking 24 wkts against ausis in 4 tests not an easy task. i consider him purely as bowler n definitely he can bat a bit n improve his batting n it vl b a gr8 achievement for him n for benefit of the country.

You are correct 99% . The case of Ishant Sharma is not right. He is not fit to play any kind of cricket.

May be you are right. But I feel that Ishant Sharma, if counselled a bit, can be a very useful bowler in tests in South Africa and Australia, with his height and pace. I also agree with MSD that players cannot be spoon-fed but when a potentially useful player is lacking something, the coach, manager etc. can come to his help and fine tune him.

51/2 batsmen won't do. Dhoni is only 1/2 batsman in tests. We need one more btasman in place of 1 bowler. MAy be Yuvi/Sehwag/GAmbhir.

HUGE VOID, what's that?
by Mike Teflon on Nov 18, 2013 02:24 AM  | Hide replies

Tendu left a huge void.. No he has been kind enough to vacate it at only 40, when he could easily play for coupla seasons more..

Rohit should now take the no.4 slot as no one else has a better technique against short ball..
