Re: Kuldeep & Hardik are still the integral part of Team India

They are not because of form and fitness issues. If they can perform, that will boost the team tremendously.

Re: Best Captain

Just to add to this. Dravid and SRT were not good captains. I think Shastri and Rahane were decent ones although they did not get much of a chance.

Re: India in South Africa, 2021-22

Which shows the lack of depth at that time. And, the bad communication skills of Gavaskar in that he did not take the pains to explain clearly why Kapil had been dropped. Even if he did, there may have been a riot. It is also a reflection of Gavaskar being a poor captain largely and the populace's e...

Here are the numbers: V KOHLI 68 40 17 11 58.82 16 MS DHONI 60 27 18 15 45.00 6 S GANGULY 49 21 13 15 42.85 11 M AZHARUDDIN 47 14 14 19 29.78 3 N PATAUDI 40 9 19 12 22.50 2 S GAVASKAR 47 9 8 30 19.14 3 Kohli is clearly on top. But, as we see, there is a clear ...

Re: India in South Africa, 2021-22

I do not mind captaincy changing every game or every series. I know it creates a bit of an uncertainty at the top. But, I want the plan of the team to be run by Dravid and I do not want a strong playing captain. Sort of like the coach of a football team and its captain. On the field, Pant is capable...

Yes, bumping this up so that he sees it and drops a line. Hope he is doing fine.

Which is better than getting injured. But, he has to use this experience to improve his fitness and long-term stamina so that he can go multiple weeks when big tournaments happen back to back.

Re: India in South Africa, 2021-22

Pant can be made the captain now. Making Rohit the captain will be Kohli deja Vu all over again. Jadeja is older and also not always a certainty in the team. A wicket-keeper captain is good to have. Jadeja is not a certainty in the test team? In which country? In the limited overs, he is not. I am ...

Re: India in South Africa, 2021-22

Ashwin does not come in automatically in the XI when we are playing in places where spin is useless. Which unfortunately is perhaps England, South Africa, and maybe New Zealand. Also, Australia. Two spinners are a luxury and Jadeja is a better bat. I like the idea of making Jadeja as the captain. Ot...

Re: India in South Africa, 2021-22

So, are we an old team or a young one? Are we transitioning or polishing a set XI in ODIs? Looking at the age distribution. Old: Dhawan (36), Ashwin (35), Kohli (33), Jayant, Bhuvi (33) Young: Kishan (23), Pant, Ruturaj (24), PK (25), VI (27) So, we have two old off-spinning allrounders. I guess Sun...

Re: Indian Badminton Thread ...

She always underperforms except at the big stage. So, let's see. Anyway, Sindhu and Saina will be done very soon. We need new blood. Lakshya is coming up on the men's side. What about the next woman?

Re: General Cricket Thread ...

I think Gavaskar is wrong. I give a lot of latitude to people to speak their mind. I would not call it utter rubbish. My take is that Kohli would not have been sacked right away but his power would have diminished because of the loss. He would most possibly argue to save his chums Pujara and Rahane ...
