He's turning very unreliable these days and not looking as solid as he was during his initial phase of Test career. May it be his mental thing or his technical flaws, he needs to fix them right now or better let other youngsters take over his spot. We can't keep giving him chances just because he's TALENTED, and he's not the only TALENTED one. Period.
    Another good post. It seems I wasn't the only one who thought he has got enough chances for now. He shouldn't be dropped forever but others should also get their chances especially those who are in good form. May be Rahul is out of form? May be he needs a kick on his backside? May be a season or two in county can revive his career? It's better to give him a break from test team and try some other options.

    Rahane has also got too many chances. His place is also in danger. Has an average of 40 after 50 test matches and he was supposed to be our next wall. He is more like a 'curtain' than 'The Wall'.

    Funny how we once debated whether Rahane was a better Test batsman than Kohli. How times change. Frustrating to see so many of our talented players not live up to the promise they showed initially.


    If there is a better batsman than Sachin then he hasnít arrived yet: Viv Richards

    That was when Rahane scored that century against England at Lords. I also really liked his inning against South Africa in the 2015 World Cup. I have never seen him like that again. He was in a AB D mode in that match.

    Rahane needs to be dropped now.I will give rahul another test and the 1st test vs australia.Then drop him.For australia if rahul fails we have mayank and rohit as backup options.

    Rahane has become a liability and needs to go now.Give mayank or hanuma a chance there.

    I never really expected a lot from him in ODI cricket back then, although he was capable of doing well in that format as well. But I honestly expected a lot from him in Tests. Has been a real let down since then. Playing isolated good innings does not do it, any tom, dick, & harry can play such isolated innings. To average 41 odd after 86 innings is not what was expected from him.

    Ashwin is now averaging less than Jadeja! His batting in tests has really gone to the pits, not even 500 runs in last 20 tests, just 1 50.

    Has a good opportunity here to score some runs.

    I agree here. At one point of his career, he was averaging 40. Has really done downhill since then with his batting. Not like we fans care much for his batting as long as he does his job as a bowler. But still it's nice to see bowlers score runs when they have the ability to do so.

    Oh bhai, watch the match. Pitch has enough turn and bounce for spinners. Let WI bat at least once, before calling this one a flat pancake.

    How exactly do you know it's not a sporting pitch? Has the West Indies batted yet? It's not like the West Indies have some gun bowlers and yet India has piled on the runs.

    And yes, we were humiliated in England, a fact.

    When hacks who couldn't buy a run in England score like there's no tomorrow, you know it is a flat pitch. And Rajkot I believe is one of the flattest pitches in the world. Has Rohit Sharma scored a 200 here yet?

    Don't get all sentimental with me BVB. Your opinion is wrong not because of your dislike of the IPL.

    Your opinion is wrong because it's wrong!

    I told you how dropping KL is not an option right now because he won't get to play Ranji. You obviously side-stepped that post because even you know you didn't have any response to it. You probably didn't even know about it.

    Shaw playing his first series.
    Kohli scored twice as many as the second best bat.
    Jadeja averaged 99 in England, with bat.
    Pujara scored a century too.

    All of them have scored here. Now stop trolling and stick to your minnow Cricket.

    On uae flat track,you lost 2-0 to srilanka
    And in England you drew becoz you played only three test matches and one got washed out
    Otherwise we know how your batsmen did in second and third test

    Not sure you have the authority to decide whose opinion is right or wrong here?

    And I think you should read this page again from the top and actually see I am not the only one who wants KL Rahul to be dropped from the test team. Good luck explaining your right opinion to all of them.

    Tell me your plan of action to bring KL back once he is dropped.

    Tell me how you have planned for him to play the Ranji in India while he is in Australia & NZ.

    You've made a suggestion about dropping him. You should see the plan through, right? A half-baked plan is worthless.

    I think it has something to do with bowlers getting taught to use maximum depth of the pitch and as we already saw tthis is becomig negative for indian cricket ,why cant they just bowl half meter inside the crease , pitching isnt really something that makes that much different than lineand lenght

    Again you are not making any sense. Once he is dropped its his job to make a comeback just like other batsmen in the country do. Also how do you know that he will be in Aus? Have they selected the team already?

    The team that beat Pakistan in UAE was a lot weaker than this and didn't have those players too. The current squad is way superior and cannot be taken lightly.

    - Shai Hope is one of the highest rated West Indians in Pakpassion - http://www.pakpassion.net/ppforum/sh...he-West-Indies

    - While Shimron Hitmeyer was the next Brian Lara - http://www.pakpassion.net/ppforum/sh...ext-Brian-Lara

    But of course, now that they are playing India, they are worse than Ireland and Hong Kong.

    Dear god..

    Are you intentionally pretending not to understand?

    KL Rahul is part of the Indian LOI squads. Even if he is dropped from the test squad he will be in Australia and NZ when the Ranji season starts. Ranji is from Nov 2018 to Feb 2019. India will be playing LOIs through Nov, Jan and Feb. He won't be available to play the Ranji which means he won't be able to score FC runs to be eligible for selection again, once he is dropped.

    How difficult is that to understand?

    Lol so is it my probelm if he won't be able to play ranji? Other players also get dropped do you show the same concern for them also? He has got enough chances. It is time to try others. You can cry all you want.

    If it's not "your problem" to find solutions, then perhaps it's also not your place to offer suggestions.

    I know KL won't be dropped because thankfully, at least the selectors aren't that daft and actually have some foresight.

    So you can keep complaining about how KL is still in the team. While I'll just sit back and enjoy the cricket.

    Haha so if indian doesnt make runs in eng the so called away tours which are hardest for asian teams ,he is unworthy and eng batsmen are gr8 for scoring runs at home? Inds can score better at home but some ppls double standards never change

    Talking about pitch it has stuff for bowlers its just 2nd day and as we saw earlier from bishu ball was spinning and pacers geeting little seam movement , u can clearly see how indian bowlers beat those wi batsmen for 29-3
    But i know ur next excuse will be its WI ,so for that u just need to know same bowlers bowled better than pak and batted well on ur own UAE pitches

    About rakot yes its known for its flat pitch but for sake of practise they did make it green top,although its nit as gr8 but still not flat at all even commentators were saying same at start of the match ,ppl judt take it for flat coz indians batted well haha

    While i am glad Indian team is finding form after poor England series.
    I do hope West Indies players score some runs on this belter of a pitch. This is just sad for the sake of test cricket.

    No. That's too much. They are still a better test team than Bangladesh.

    They are still fairly decent at home and they win an odd match here and there away from home.

    Associates have improved
    The gap between them & FMs have reduced
    Test cricket was never going to be global,it's just too time taking
    Even Odis lasts for 7-8 hours
    T20 is the the future
    It attracts more people as it provides more entertainment in lesser time
    And considering the fact that this format started just 15 years back,it's growing at a good pace
    The Subcontinent origin people living in other nations have played a big part in improving Cricketing standards of non cricketing countries

    T20 is definitely the future

    The fact is simple (or rather complicated perhaps!)... A match/series/pitch/opponent which Pakistan wins is highly competitive & challenging affair. Match/tournament/pitch/opponent which India wins is a mediocre/flat/doctor-ordered/minnow-level-opponent, and what not! Certainly Pakistan were playing Clive Loyd led WI team when they lost a test match to them recently, while India were playing the weakest ever England team on BCCI-sponsored pitches last time but still lost! Asia cup holds no significance because it is dead UAE pitch (it was alive when Younis, Misbah were around!) whereas last CT was a case of best-ever-sportive pitch hosted by ICC! In next world cup if India progresses and Pakistan regresses, you know what has to be said & understood

    While your readiness to defend all Hyderabad players is admirable , stats aren't everything . Vihari deserves his chances but it's clear that shubman gill is a couple of levels of above in terms of ability. Thank god you aren't one of the selectors
