    Looked outside the line, where it'd hit him. Saha didn't help him much either!

    Indian commies overanalyzing Kohli not taking the review.

    Relax. Doesn't matter.

    And it did look close so you can see Kohli's point with India in such a good position.

    Geez, listening to Indian commies is such a torture.

    It does matter when you're looking to get to 600 quickly, how do you suppose we'll do that without Kohli at the crease. We might get there with ease but it'll cost us 5~10 overs more than it should have.

    It looked super close so you can see Kohli's point.

    There is way too much time in this test considering we scored so fast. Plus we have Jaddu who can slog a bit.

    That's not being selfish, not even close, with Kohli at the crease we could get to 600 rather quickly. That's called using your brain, admittedly though it looked marginal where it'd hit him. I thought it'd be umpire's call at best, for impact with the pad. He was definitely not struck in line when the ball was going to hit the outer half of off stump, also it didn't look like the ball was hitting any part of middle even in realtime so a review was well worth it.

    Yes but the decision looked out in real time.

    You won't generally review it unless the team is in dire situation and the batsman in question is the best one. Remember, out means umpires calls go against you so all the more reason to not review.

    Kohli could have reviewed it considering we were in super good position and it wouldn't have mattered even if we lost. He may have reviewed it if he was in 190s.

    Saha nudged, see the replays again where Kohli shakes his head after looking in his direction.

    Mental midget is him being too timid with the bat, also he didn't help Kohli much (with DRS) even in the tests he played when India were fielding. So yeah he is a mental midget, I've seen him debut against Steyn in Nagpur & he hasn't shaken that feeling ever since, especially against tough opposition like Aus in Aus.

    Mental midget to be precise, his demeanor while batting or keeping does give you that feeling. Haven't seen such a lifeless keeper anywhere in the world for quite a while, perhaps Nevill comes close.

    I don't think he is, a few good innings against WI or NZ, with the latter being at home doesn't make him clutch. He has a full year at his disposal, we'll see how good he really is after the Aus series & then SA in SA. I wouldn't mind him coming good, but won't hold my breath for it.

    2 run out chances missed, first that of VJ and then its that of Saha.

    On a very flat wicket you need to atleast get those chances in your favor.

    Now the cracks have opened up, batting will be difficult when we come out to bat today. India have already scored a 200 run too many for us to handle. FGS we have Soumya, Riad, Sabbir, none who have the temparement for test cricket and Miraz who was a genuine batsman in U-19 averages 2.5, yes 2.5 with the bat after 8 innings Chris Martin would be proud

    We really need a wicket keeper with good gloves here. Saha and PArthiv both are pretty mediocre. Haven't seen Pant keep. All 3 seem to be decent batsmen for keepers, but for a keeper your primary role is keeping.

    I'll take a(ny) decent bat of the three, so long as he performs in testing conditions especially away from home. Right now we don't have good glovemen anyway, so the better bat wins it IMO, Pant or Kishan would be a welcome change.

    A wicket keeper scoring runs at number 6 or 7 miht help u win or survive a test once every 10 or so, in true sense. But a keeper who drops catches and misses stumps will simply lose you games single handedly. We are talking about test matches here.

    This outfield is very slow for Indian grounds. Bangladesh will have to keep this in mind too!

    That's not necessarily true, for instance just take Haddin in 2013 Ashes or De Kock last year vs Aus. We need a safe keeper first, a good bat is obviously a bonus, there aren't (m)any safe wk in India right now IMO.

    Saha and Parthiv are liability as keepers. At home India can survive their blunders (I think there was an average of 4 misses in England series per match). You can't afford that away. A keeper scoring a few runs will not turn the game on his head but dropped catches do.

    Case in point : Mushfiqur Rahim, has already cost his team more than a 100 runs by his poor glove work.

    600+ in three tests on trot. Is that a record?

    the lad was the the captain of U-19 side in 14 and 16 WC, even that MOTT last year with average of 60 with the bat including 50s in the crunch games.

    The odd are it will go down from 2.5 to 2.0 at the end of this test match.

    We don't even play tests, also management didnt render him fit for Tests against England.

    If taskin remains fit overtime we can develop a good bowling unit.

    We are in agreement with that, but really apart from Pant or Kishan do you any other alternatives keeping one eye on the future?

    This debate on Wicket-keepers is proving the point how much we are missing MSD even in Tests He is miles ahead of the rest in Wicket-keeping alone and just his name on the lineup (as a batsman) makes opposition take it seriously (though I agree he was not that great in Test batting!) This is been happening since he quit the Test Arena (still we haven't sorted it out & found a proper replacement). When MSD was playing in Test Matches, we were concentrating too much on his defensive captaincy, but forgot his value as a player!

    Yes he is & he should've continued as a wk/bat under Kohli, taking a break from LO games perhaps? Alternatively he could've chosen the important LO games he'd like to feature in, like SRT at one point in time, so that he could play the 2017 CT or even 2019 WC but alas he decided to quit.

    Just imagine if you are missing him in dhoni's weakest format what will happen when he is going to retire from LOI's? But few fans already want Pant to replace dhoni.

    I love the arm chair critics. Saha is one of the best keepers in India and waaayy better than Dhoni at this stage, particularly against pacers. Dhoni used to drop catches and not even go for many. But Dhoni love makes them blind of course.

    Your post is the perfect example of how little knowledge is dangerous. Someone who has toiled himself fir years in domestic is clearly the best keeper by miles is technique is attacked because nerves caused him to drop a couple. Of course completely ignoring the fact that every single keeper we ever had, including Dhoni did the same in their earlier days

    LMAO Saha is miles ahead of Dhoni in keeping particualrly against pace and takes catches which Dhoni does not even dream of going after. There is No debatre, just a couple of Dhoni lovers and other ignorant people debating a non-existant point and trying to put Saha down. But dont let me stop you

    LOL I am a Saha fan but you are trying to show as if Dhoni was a terrible keeper. Those occasional blips that you talked about, has that not happened with Saha? He's also missed number of catches, stumpings. Can pull out the data from CI commentary needed.

    Saha is more agile vs Dhoni so looks more stylish but Dhoni was a better keeper vs spin and had faster hands than Saha.

    A guy 'disinterested' in test cricket went onto play 90 tests (missing just 9 tests we played during his career span)? Wonder how many he would have played if he was 'interested' in tests.

    They're looking at 700 perhaps #team milestones more important than results? Off topic but interestingly Aus haven't scored a 600 against India, never in India ~

    Kohli likes to give the seamers a go so we may not get 15 in.

    Yeah that's the thing but with two lefties(?) Ashwin should be given a few overs early as the ball will skid on.

    Virat Kohli has the wrong impression that Bangladeshi batsman are good against spin. 3 spinners on this wicket would have been lethal
