    Is he talented with the bat ?

    Excellent bowler, will go a long way no doubt

    He has the turn and the variety. Also has a good height and release.

    Only thing is he doesn't get much drift and dip.

    I think he is more suited to shorter formats. It would be better if the selectors ask Bhajji to concentrate more in Test and give spinners like Ashwin, Mishra and Ojha a go in shorter formats.

    I've always maintained that Ashwin is way too overrated on this forum.

    He isn't that good, for heaven's sake. Give him some time instead of putting so much pressure on him by putting him on such a high pedestal at such an early stage of his career.

    Ashwin has good variations and control. Also, is ready to bowl even in powerplays and shows right temperament. We need to give him an extended run at the highest level to see, if he can succeed at the highest level. Spinners need more time to mature, in my view Ashwin has what it takes to succeed at the highest level.

    I'm a fan ,like his attitude and the way balls I just worry though what if he gets decoded. In some Cl 2010 game, david hussey got the measure of him in his innings, and when the super over came he took 28 runs off ashwin, but then again he might have had a bad day

    Great performance from Ashwin.

    But still think it's too early to judge him as a test bowler. If Hafeez can dominate the WI lineup, they're not exactly the strongest of players against spin.

    Also, we have to remember the way Mendis started out and how he has progressed. In many ways Mendis is similar to Ashwin.

    But that doesn't mean Ashwin can't prove me wrong. Good luck to him.

    you had any idea regarding hirwani history,,apart from that match...have any idea regarding who was the captain during his days....that **** system is no more in place.I am telling this because i have read his biography & entire history..

    Missed a pun chance there. Should have used "headstrong" instead.

    Proven donkey in the field.
    Need to improve his running between the wickets and his fielding.
    Ball watching batsmen tend to be poor fielders.



    Always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job Because he will find an easy way to do it.

    This guy is a Liablity as a fielder and an extremely extremely poor runner...Cost us an entire test match , i may sound a bit harsh, but his running between the wickets over shadowed his 5fer and a century.

    Totally agree, he had the perfect chance & an opportunity like that will never come back ! You can't be excused if you've flunked in one department(batting/fielding) of the game just cause you've done better in others, the commitment(perhaps focus as well) from him was certainly lacking in that last hour of the test match.

    He is a decent fielder but a bad runner I agree, needs to work on it. But some really OTT reactions here.

    Did you see the last ball of the match ? Some members on PP have pointed out that he defended the second last ball of the day in order to save us from losing, if thats the case then surely he must have realized that we couldn't lose the game off the last ball provided both of them aren't run out !
    Now if he didn't have a blood clot somewhere in that brain of his(btw I hate that stupid brain f*** acronym) then he should have run for the second no matter what, but he didn't that could imply alot of other insinuating things(like those numerous conspiracy theories going around) so least of all that shows his lack of commitment/focus in not running hard(especially the first run) & mostly common sense missing in the heat of the moment.

    ^

    He doesn't run, but walks when batting.
    Last ball of the drawn test match , ball crossed him before he could turn for the second run.

    It'd definitely help him & the team if he'd look at his batting partner instead of turning his back on them(like yesterday) then reluctantly turning back to save face !

    I don't think even Usain Bolt could have taken two runs there. Only chance was wk missing the through, but then he would completed it anyway.

    Yeah but the point is he didn't run thereby negating any chance the keeper might have messed up like the PAK/SL T20 nor did he put any pressure on the fielder, anyone defending him on this is a devoted ****** !

    india would have been in a deeper mess without his century.

    Some times, a mistake can be forgiven for greater goods. It was stupidity, but for gods sake, he isn't a batsman. If you watched cricket in 90s, these tail enders bat way better than srinath and kumble ("yes! No! Yes! The last thing you'll see, they are both on the same end"). Give credit where its due. Its the batsmans fault that situation became like that. Yesterday and in that test, only the lower middle order and tail enders taking the role of anchoring in more occasions than they are capable of.

    exactly,it was such a confusing situation that even a specialist bat could have messed it up, n he is a tailender playing his 3rd test

    yeah he messed it up, no justification for that.

    but it happens in the heat of the moment.even top batsmen flunk.to say he lacks commitment just bcoz of one incident is unfair

    That's his only saving grace but if we are to move forward from wannabe world champs to an indomitable force in cricket this change will have to come sooner rather than later, just look at Oz last test against SA(even though they're on a downslide) where MJ & Robert pull them through an even tougher scenario the only difference being they had more than enough time left on their side !

    I'd like to clarify this -
    its not the execution part but his unwillingness to run that tight second(similar to last night) that makes me wonder if he's giving that 110% which is required in such conditions ?

    he messed it up,he was waiting for Aaron to completing the run.I'm sure he thought that the throw would be at bowlers end.

    it was a tactical error than unwillingness as u r saying.it happens.

    & last night it was Rohit's fault.Ashwin clearly said no early enough,but Rohit didnt look at him n just kept running.still it was good thinking from Ashwin to sacrifice his own wicket.if he lacked commitment,he could've easily stayed in his crease n got Rohit out
