    England batters are supposed to be able to handle orthodox swing.

    Much less capable against spin when batting last.

    I told you guys Rahul struggles against swing, he has some shots and sure is a good talent but only talent is not enough to become world class.

    People comparing him with Babar dont realize how Babar has the ability to play the ball late which Rahul at the moment doesnt have and that will make him struggle in swinging conditions more often than not

    This could be the end of Rahul's career! Clearly Vijay Bharadwaj Version.2 from the same state! (Cannot convert potential into performance! For those who don't know Vijay Bharadjwaj... He was the man who instrumentally carried Karnataka in Ranji at least one season all the way almost single-handedly! Before you can bring Wasim Jaffer & others into this, let me tell that the guy had solid footwork to start with & highly appreciated by cricket-connoisseurs all across, but then lost it completely due to temperament/mental issues!) Time is running out and it will be difficult for Rahul to stay in the hunt unless he scores 3 double centuries & makes lot of buddies in the team!

    No actually he dubuted against Pak in 2nd match and did create an impact. None of the posters were rating him because he didnt have that most overrated attribute here called “pace”.

    Pace is good but its only a supporting attribute unless you are 150 kph

    Wasn’t vijay bharadwaj a garbage off spinner who played few matches.. Only thing i remember about him was he took a wicket and when keeper came to celebrate with him the keepers hand hit is groin and mr Bharadwaj was out on all fours for a few minutes..

    Or was there another vijay Bharadwaj who was a batsman?

    Either way Rahul seems to be going the Rohit Sharma path.. Dissapointing in first 5-6 years of cricket and then get few good years..

    Rahul needs to learn how to leave balls you don’t have to play at every ball in test cricket.. Was a very poor shot today and he has himself to blame.

    Rahul has same issues with swinging ball like Kohli! Both prefer to play shots (keep scoreboard moving, an asset which Rahul learnt later on looking at LOI/IPL demands & perhaps inheriting from Kohli... Probably he shouldn't have done that and followed somebody like Gambhir to stay solid being an opener! He messed up everything) Rahul will come good only if he sorts out this & gets out of his mental block (1st block is - His place in the team!) Then he will be too good, but for the moment he is way inferior to Babar or even a rookie club level opener!

    No, the man in your avatar would go on to convert that 20(80) to 100(280)* which will turn somebody like Kohli into Sachin mode - 150(250) and further trigger somebody like Rahane to become Ganguly/Laxman - 80(150). This connection is missing here... The creator (Dravid) is not available to see Preserver & Destroyers in full flow! That's the start of the problem!

    Pujara would have made no difference, Dhawan has already scored those runs (unfortunately he is no Sehwag to make it big!) and at least he has given time for rest of the batting & bowlers to come & attack in the next innings!

    Once again it all depends on Kohli. I don't know how much pressure he can take. And some "taili gully ke bhaijan" thinks that Kohli has to settle around other match winning superstars.

    It would be too hard on youngster to debut in eng. Also I guess he is selected as keeper, if Karthik fails with bat as well as he did with gloves than there is definitely a chance but would be really tough on him.

    Why in the hell would you play Rashid over Moeen or Bess .
    Firstly Moeen and Bess are better batsmen .
    Secondly rashida average of 40 shows he’s rubbish. Out of 6 deliveries Bowles 4 full tosses . I think kohli s expression must have fooled them. Mark my words he will get smashed and let India take the session after lunch . I am predicting India to strike back after lunch. Just like the previous day

    Hopefully you are right. Kohli and Rahane are capable of that. Out of the lower order I only have confidence in Ashwin's batting.

    To give exposure and play if India is on top in the series but thats my thought. Indian would have been expecting that Karthik will be good enough to play the full series.

    I am not sure if I Pant is technically equipped at the moment to handle the swinging ball.

    Or was there another vijay Bharadwaj who was a batsman?

    Either way Rahul seems to be going the Rohit Sharma path.. Dissapointing in first 5-6 years of cricket and then get few good years..

    Rahul needs to learn how to leave balls you don’t have to play at every ball in test cricket.. Was a very poor shot today and he has himself to blame.
    This shows that you didn't follow Vijay Bharadwaj's career fully! Rahul will be the same story after 10 years if he loses his way! Nobody will remember his heroics in T20/IPL (actually Ranji trophies are tougher from Knockout stages onward! Unlike Jaffer, Jadeja, etc who relish against weaker teams/lesser games!)

    Of course I didn’t follow his career I don’t watch Ranji matches I find them boring and frankly I got better things in life to do than watch Ranji matches..

    My question was is he the same vijay Bharadwaj who was off spinner who played for India or some other vijay Bharadwaj you are talking about?

    Whether Rahul flops or hits big will be seen in future but he doesn’t seem to have temperament to survive big in test cricket in testing conditions..

    Him considered as off-spinner itself says the story (He shouldn't have gone that way! Even team should have not looked him in that way!) The reason why I am comparing with him is because of the similarity when it comes to temperament! Even if you ignore, let me tell you that people had huge expectations from Bharadwaj after that Ranji season & the potential he showed to start with (I still remember the comment of Barry Richards on the Comm. Box when he played a back-foot classical drive off hot Shaun Pollock chasing down South Africa's paltry score in Nairobi!) Some people prefer just surface observation, I am one of the guy who goes deep into certain things! I felt even Sunil Joshi, Venkatesh Prasad, would have achieved lot better things had they put their head in right place (Venky was no different than Mc.Grath when it comes to pace!) Also Srinath, Kumble would have made even bigger name. Only Dravid lived up to almost full expectations. I am close follower of Karnataka Cricketers (not a bad thing at all, every guy can do this for their respective states) that doesn't mean that I don't follow national cricketers from other regions once they made there! (But separate observation I make for my region's cricketers)

    Some of these guys lack the temperament to play on English pitches used in test matches. Look at Dhawan he still plays like a noob in England.

    Dhavan always looks shaky outside of Indian pitches in longer format.

    If England start with Rashid , it’s game over . England need to give Anderson another spell when kohli is new . Need pressure from both ends otherwise Rahane and kohli will eat Rashid apart

    Shastri has to look at all set of left handed openers in the country to open in Test Matches (or there any?) if he wants that deadly (his favorite) left-right hand combination going... Should be bring back Abhinav Mukund?

    He knows it too, but nothing better than bashing an IPL hack, so no wonder he can't wait to see Pant face Broad and Anderson.

    There have been lot of players who impress lot of pundits over the years.. Doesn’t mean much..

    No offence but the only similarity between Venky and McGrath was height, venky could have applied all the head in the right direction but he just didn’t have skill set like McGrath. He maybe have become an average bowler from his current status as a below average bowler but that was his ceiling..

    Similarly Sunil Joshi was also mediocre..

    Srinath and Kumble were good and maybe with modern technology we have today they would performed slightly better than what they did but that is about it..
