    That knock probably won the series here. Indians don't need to hit out here. Just need to keep batting.

    @Zakaz Bhai , before you celebrate too much please remember this. If India win this test , we would have won 3 tests in Australia in the last 40 days or so which Pakistan have managed in the last 40 years or so. An eye opener for you brother.

    Lol what are you saying? They didn't even play Cummins and Hazlewood in UAE. That was an Australia 'D' team and PAK still needed to win both tosses and a once in a blue moon performance from Sarfraz to beat them 1-0.

    Saha's wicketkeeping has served India well. Not sure if Pant's wicketkeeping is good enough at this point to not bring Saha back in the team.

    What lol Pant is ever improving. Not like Saha didn't make mistakes. Pant brings lot of energy. Provides excellent balance. Saha is over-rated. He had couple of a good series. That's it.

    Pant is as good against the quicks. Only way to develop against the spinners is by keeping against them. He is the long term keeper and needs to be given those opportunities.

    Saha has also been broken for a long time now.

    It's already a weak batting lineup. Pant is a silver lining and that is shocking to me. The way he is batting with maturity is at odds with what I saw in LOIs. Saha is done and dusted. Pant had a hundred in Eng, couple of 90s and now close to another hundred in AUS. He scored close to 260 runs without breaking a sweat in this series so far. Hos keeping was good too. He's here to stay and after the WC, will be India's no.1 keeper in all formats.

    Against spin. Ever seen is a bit of a stretch but certainly in the modern era.

    Most subcontinental keepers from the 70s and 80s were very good against spin.

    Difference between saha the keeper and pant the keeper can be measured in kilometers my friend. Pant is a batsman who can keep, saha is a keeper who could bat.

    But not so good with the bat. Mediocre infact. With no.6 spot still in the air and Rahane very inconsistent, Keeper needs to bat well. Saha can't fit that role anymore.

    Can we afford to play a keeper who can barely bat outside India?

    At this point, the difference in their batting skills can be measured in miles

    Vihari/Pandya
    Pant
    That's what the logic says but Rahane will be in the team to fill the Mumbai quota. Shastri will make sure Rahane and probably Rohit are around

    Pant is at this moment well on his way to become India's greatest ever keeper-batsman.

    Shaw and Hardik(ish) are enough for Mumbai quota.

    That is bit of a stretch lol. He is poor man's mushfiqur rahim. Clueless batsman. He missed easy stumping in Srilanka.

    He certainly dropped his fair share of catches against the quicks.

    He is not a very good keeper against faster bowling. His long absence has made people forget all his drops.

    Don't get carried away. Pant's Test average is 38, Saha's is 31, that's a difference of only 7. However, a dropped catch can cost a team 20 runs on average. I am not implying Pant drops one more catch per match, but dropped catches need to be considered when making a comparison.

    Yup. I have seen the so called best ever missing atleast 5 chances during last home stretch. It is a common practice to hail someone the best ever if he is good at one aspect compared to other aspect. I have seen Sarfaraz hailed best ever player of spin just because he is good at spin and incompetent against pace.

    Yes 1 missed chance clearly proves he was a mediocre keeper, kohli must be poor man's Chris Martin by that standard what with his 8 ducks in test cricket.

    Most subcontinental keepers from the 70s and 80s were very good against spin.
    Against pace too.

    Couple of drops in Raipur doesn't make him a poor keeper.

    The flying catch of Umesh was incredible.

    Has been consistently good against pacers too.

    Saha does not have the X-factor in him and is a very timid player, I still remember the way he got out(bowled) to Lyon in the Adelaide test last time around, when only 60+ runs were required to win the test match. I hope, he wont make a come back to the Test team again!

    Scores less but scores important runs.

    Saved India's *** on the Kolkata seamer friendly track.

    Would hav come good in SENA. Not statistically but impact wise.

    And i love Pant.

    Agree. He may be a good wicket keeper but his batting was always rank ordinary.

    Pant's average is almost 45 (though of course a wicket will bring it down) and these are in much more challenging conditions. He is India's 3rd best bat.

    I get what you are saying but that is a bad example, how many times has pant thrown away his wicket needlessly when India required him to bat well.

    I have seen definite improvement in Pant's keeping this series. But it's his batting that has been a revelation. The headless chicken in T20s is not the guy I saw in tests. The way he negotiated Lyon and pacers all series shows he's got time and dare I say, temperment. He's still a work in progress but this series has cemented his place I'm sure.
