    I think Gill would be wasted at no 4 in our current ODI line up. Our top 3 usually bat till 35 overs, not much he can do. Might as well get a big hitter in his place.

    Just scored a hundred in his last innings. Let’s not get swayed away. He needs to be given full 1-2 series more.

    Got to feel for KL. A great talent laid to waste by a bunch of crazy selectors. But he partly has himself to blame for not working on his consistency. I hope he bounces back.

    There were news that indian team management wanted fast and bouncy pitch to prepare for Aus series but you cant change the nature of the pitch at such a short notice.

    They have had 2 months to prepare this pitch, and we have known the Australian tour itinerary for at least 6 months, so lack of preparation time is a droll excuse.

    It's not even that, there's a lack of will from everyone involved to make test cricket exciting. Who the hell wants to waste time watching India pummel a weak West Indies team into the dirt on flat pitches ? Even the players would be bored out of their minds.

    Considering that there are only few test playing nations and we dont play with Pakistan, WI were the only option left. But yeah i would have preferred a rank turner than the current pitch. Match would have lasted only two days but would be more fun to watch.

    My point isn't that India shouldn't be playing the West Indies at all, far from it. However, the administrators should do everything possible to make the series a competitive contest, and good pitches are the easiest fix in that respect.

    There needs to be a directive from the ICC on pitch preparation for test matches, otherwise, the sport is being deliberately left to rot.

    You're kidding right? He just scored a century! In the previous innings!

    He had a bad tour of SA and ENG. That's all. It was his first tour. Most Asian batsmen struggle on their first tour. Look what happened to Kohli on his first English tour.

    You're being so over-the-top!

    That's a big egotistical, don't you think?

    How do think the Aussies feel every time Pakistan tours there? I bet they think that's a total snoozefest too!

    That's not a nice way to look at this. If this was another SL series I would understand. But WI is touring after 5 years. You have to play everyone.

    Shaw is 18. So, he has time to cope with his technical deficiency but his biggest test, like most Asian batsmen will be in non-Asian countries.

    Even if India invests a good 4-5 years on him, he can establish himself by age 23-24 and can be a great servant for India for many more years. The question will be though if results come out after a good period of investment in him.

    I have no time for your tedious brand of unimaginative jingoism. What does Pakistan playing Australia have anything to do with this ? See my next post for clarification, I was talking about the pitches.

    Haha finally someone who has spoken the truth. All your other countrymen want us to forget that his century came when his side lost.

    Yeah buddy, current Australian pitches are just as much a bowler's graveyard as Rajkot has always been.

    So I don't know what you are complaining about. Not every pitch is gonna be a Turner or a green mamba. Get real.

    Definitely was useful because it took us very close to a draw.

    I don't know why you're always so cynical about every other player.

    You're being so over-the-top!
    Lol at 'He had a bad tour of SA and Eng. That's all.' You are the one with over the top reaction here. I didn't even talk about Eng and South Africa here.

    I am talking about his failure in the first inning. He has got enough chances for now. Time for Mayank to get his chance in the next match.

    Kohli and Rahane might themselves fall asleep the way they are batting. What a sharp contrast to the way Shaw played.

    Close to a draw? Another moral victory? We lost that match in the end.

    Also I am not someone who dislike Rahul here. Infact I have always supported his inclusion and criticised team management for not giving enough chances but when he got his chances he didn't do anything special. So it is time to try someone else. Sorry I can't worship players like some of you do. Have to say what I feel without worrying about intolerant trolls here.

    450 will be a good total here. Chase and Bishoo getting good turn and stroke making isn't easy.

    Kohli and Rahane look at ease and well set for big scores. Too early, but I feel India will declare at around 600 and the Spin trioka will dismiss the Windies batters twice under 250.

    After the India-England series, this one might be a yawn-fest.... for neutrals.

    Yes but that is how test matches plays in India.Ash batting average is 55.66 vs wI.Pant,Jadeja with Triple here in Ranji and tails without much we still can gets 500 because virat will be key.

    New ball due in 9 overs.might be 366 for 3 by close but if we loose 2 by close we might dismiss at lunch time on day 2

    Rahane 93 and 148 in domestic looks solid but one can not trust him who plays odd stroke once and while
    310 / 3 Rahane on 33*, Virat on 47*

    90 ball need to be bowls in the day.bishoo 29/0/109/1

    With the sort of new-age "instant satisfaction" attitude you have, I'm surprised you're so anti-IPL. One would think you would love it.

    Thankfully, the team management doesn't believe in your "live by the sword, die by the sword" philosophy.

    This same KL Rahul scored 7 back-to-back half centuries throughout a very tough series against Australia. He scored a century on his only tour outside Asia before this (Australia) and even scored big runs against Eng in 2016.
    First tour of SA and ENG is very difficult for most batsmen. Even someone of the calibre of Kohli failed to get a single 50, even in dead rubbers.

    I shudder to think how much talent we would have thrown away if the BCCI thought like you.

    What a boring day wow. No wonder tests are dying. Do purists really believe kids whose eyes are glued to Instagram on their smartphones will enjoy this tripe?

    I don't think a score of 41 should be considered a "failure". But yes, he should have gone on to score more.

    Against WI on this track and after that start it certainly should be considered a failure.

    Failure is too harsh. Test runs are test runs.

    He underperformed today. For sure. But 41 test runs should not be considered a failure.

    Another failure for Rahane. Averaging 22 in last 13 tests India since his last Test 100 2 years ago. Proper tailenender stats.

    Not sure why he should be starting in the next test. Better to give Vihari a chance
