    another complete player who needs to be in team asap is rayadu.. i have been asking form these to be in team for such a long time now...hope we get rid of raina for good
    Yes, Rayadu needs to be given opportunity. As a kid (U19) he was star of Indian team. I think he was in news everywhere when he got that 175+ odd runs against England in England. I dont know why it has taken so long but he had great potential to make it to playing 11.

    In a way Rohit Sharma,Mukund,Pujara,Tewari and Rahane are lucky. They came to the scene when our batting Power House needs new batteries. Am not sure but they are probably younger than Rayadu.

    Honestly, I think Rahane will loose his off stump within first two overs of Pattison. He doent give me confidence. One has to look at the way, consistently Finn cleaned him in the odi series. If selectors and Dhoni think he can now manage to defend those balls he should be brought in. But I still doubt that he would have made that extra improvement within past two months.

    i dont think too much abt that finn dismissal..but there are other things too
    he has kind of risky game (not in sehwag way ) but he can do with some time in county to tighten his game up
    with finn i honestly felt cos of lack of match practice he was not going forward enough.. i have seen him bat before and that is not big problem for him
    im more worried abt playing away from body against good bowlers that can be bad..

    also he looked all right in last domestic match he played much better then others but rayadu played better in 2nd innings

    another good player is bist he didn ot had great season this time around but he is class act..lets hope he does well

    they both are..csk players dont need hype they get into team for no reason
    mumbai batsmen some times i feel for example rohit is over hyped only cos he is from mumbai
    also mumbai play on flat tracks averages are bit high cos of that..rohit sharma is no where close to est level and still many people cos of hype by commie believe he deserves to be in test side and in odis he only struggled cos of pressure (while he does well in t20 and ipl! haha)
    in test matches u go through phases iwth run rate of 1 like in last match too
    and rohit will 9 times out of 10 throw wicket away after 4-5 tight overs

    If I was Steyn I will give up everything and try to bowl that same delivery in the nets and in the game. Atleast one in every 10 attempts i may succeed in bow;ling exactly the same.

    Not only you, but a lot of people are loosing their patience with Rohit. And others are finding it increasingly difficult to justify his selection. I would rather let someone else wear the cap and clearly let Rohit know that he should work harder. If others fail too then after say 1.5-2 years he may be given one more chance.

    You can practice it, and even perfect it. How else do you think bowlers like McGrath could bowl on the same spot (if they wanted) every ball of an over?

    Ball missed outside edge of the bat by half a inch.i.e Pujara was too early in his shot... I am sure Pujara will be adjusted to that next time he plays Steyn.

    Those 5 dots ball that Steyn bowled prior to that may have made Pujara to take the sixth one as opportunity to score a run in legside. He will probably just let the sixth ball go dot as well instead of thinking it as a opportunity on which he must score run.

    @ everyone still discussing about that ball
    it was total beauty u honestly cannot play it
    ball was drifting towards leg stump then cos of late swing of steyn it started swinging from leg stump and would have hit off stump
    u cannot defend these its impossible to play..
    another example is dismissal of clarke at perth..it was shorter ball but it swing from middle stump and got edge of bat of clarke

    also in this series he was swinging ball like this...
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s93XgGOIyUQ

    like i said u will be lucky that it swings so much that it misses the edge and stumps otherwise u cant leave it (as its on stumps ) u have to play at it

    dude,bowling on the same spot is completely different thing to getting the ball swing from leg stump.If one could practice n perfect it,dont think we would have it more often

    lol you want him to leave the ball which is hitting middle?

    Pujara wasnt too early on the shot.when the ball pitches on leg stump,the batsman instinct to close the face of the bat as 99% of time it carries on,still it was just facing mid the swing was too big though which nobody can handle.

    He has prooved that SO FAR he is street head than any other young batsman in the world.

    If you are an indian you should worry more about the likes of Vijay, Rahane, Kholi, Dhawan etc... To me they all look, at best, average.

    Re: Pujara the new ftb?

    Haha what a joke. Ball was spinning, jumping, and staying low and rising up suddenly. This guy made it look like a road. I think OP can show the slightest bit of appreciation rather than this blatant disrespect to a special player.

    Because some of them applied them self despite pitch being tough. Pitch had uneven bounce and it was turning. Opposite of being a flat pitch. Flat pitches don't produce 3 day test match.

    Did you watch the match or simply saw high score by Pujara and came up with this post?

    He may struggle on seaming wickets but that remains to be seen. Give him some credit those pitches were turners not roads.

    Haha. Maybe, but WHAT an ftb though!

    With herbjaan and laxman gone, and tendulkar's powers on the wane, I hope and believe that we have found australia's new nemesis. I love this guy

    He will fail outside the subcontinent just like kohli, dhawan, murli vijay and rahane. They are a product of the ipl and don't have a clue on how to face england, pakistan or south african bowlers outside India. tHey will all fail just like Vinod Kambli did back in the day...Mark my words..

    My world cup squad fpr worldcup 2015 for the indian squad will have sehwag, gautam gambhir, suresh raina, tendulkar, dhoni, yuvraj, harbhajan and zaheer khan who have the maturity and the will to win.

    They also have the maturity and world cup experience. They just need to be fit and slog it out in the gym until then. The Australianas did it with the waugh brothers, warne and ponting back in the day.

    what a pathetic thread. pujara has done well for india a outside the subcontinent. and even though he flopped last time in sa, he still looked impressive

    pujara, dhawan & kohli will all do well outside the sub continent also. vijay might struggle, but if he has improved, even he will do well. they just need to bat like sehwag and score quickly

    Actually, how can you call a batsman FTB if he plays so well on turners with uneven bounce? It doesn't matter if was at home or away.

    FTB should be reserved for batsmen who can bully on flat track but can't play on difficult pitch. Pujara has played few very good knocks on difficult pitch. Even if he can't play well on seaming tracks, he can hardly be called a FTB. Anyway, there are not too many FTB in world to begin with.

    Well he isn't an FTB.
    The pitch was a minefield and where all the other Batsman struggled he scored Runs.
    Has to work on his pull though it may lead to his demise on bouncing pitches, i don't think the moving ball should effect him a lot.

    You know someone's either a certified blind or has no knowledge about cricketing terms when he makes such threads. Last pitch was a rank turner and the ball was keeping low, some deliveries lifting off like rockets lol it was one heck of a touch pitch even for Indian batsmen. Pujara totally conquered it, give credit where due. This guy's quite a fighter.

    You can't overrate him though just by performing on that pitch , these guys grow up playing on these pitches.

    Not true
    This guy grew up on rajkot track...lmao
    And most pitches in India are not turners...intact Delhi pitch has fair amount of bounce in ranji with pacers picking majority of wickets

    Its like south Africa batters grow up on bouncy tracks but not many are 48 all out tracks are they ?
    Performing there even at home is special performance..

    Domestic pitches are of different kinds in India. There are all sorts of pitches here. India use spinner's tracks for international matches as it is their strength. That does not mean all the tracks here favour spin and our lads grow up entirely on these tracks.

    Pujara is a ftb just like Kohli, Rahane, Dhawan and Vijay. THey fail outside the subcontinent. They are just good for domestic matches within India. They are now where near the maturity and skill level of Dhoni, Sehwag, Yuvraj, Gautam Gambhir and Raina...

    Kohli seemed the best of the lot we had but didn't helped our cause on away tours, Pujara did well this series but will have to wait and see whether he is a worthy replacement for Dravid.

    Even if he is an FTB what he is supposed to do? Not score when the track is flat and not win games for his country? 'Hey I am not going to win games for my country cuz some nutcase on a forum will call me FTB'

    I am tired of this FTB thingy. Just because a match is played in subcontinent doesn't automatically mean the pitch is flat.

    Well said. Some.... no most here think 'FTB' is a derogatory remark hence they use it a lot to undermine certain teams/batsmen but for me 'any track bully' is better than pretenders.

    As if the players themselves care about what a random fan on the internet thinks. Any track bully is better than a zombie.

    I don't think that he will remain there for long time he just played 13 matches from which 11 are in india. Sanga, Kallis, Sachin, Lara, Miandad, Ponting, Dravid etc played 100+ Tests everywhere in the world and still managed to have an average of 50+ Pujara is not of that league...Pujara played almost all matches in india on flat pitches and played 2 matches in South Africa and wasn't able to score 20 runs there...If he is given a long run outside asia he will be exposed and his average will be dropped...
