So Raina gets a nod above Yuvi for Vice-Captain post , Interesting!! Why would they want to choose 3 spinners, 2 WK ?? Seriously stupid selection . I would have gone for Rahul Sharma over Mishra . Bhajji should be rested for good ! Rayudu and Uthappa surely deserved a chance !
Wriddhiman Saha WHY HE?? Man somethings are just so difficult to understand. Poor Rayadu.
Rayudu is not a full time wicket keeper, hence maybe the reason. But Rayudu should have been included in the team atleast. Its been known that the selectors do such stupid moves from time to time and waste the talent available.
The Indian team will be quite different from the one that played the WC, right? I'm sure Sehwag won't play since he has to undergo a shoulder surgery. Hope he gets better and picks up the bat as soon as the doctors give him the green signal.
I would really like to see Kohli captain the side, at least once, in the next one year. I think he has plenty of potential and he could consult the more experienced campaigners in the side if he needs to.
On a different note, I'm sure the West Indies selectors are hitting their heads on the walls while watching Gayle absolutely annihilate every bowler in the IPL. What a treat he is, to watch!
The pitches in the West Indies aren't the same as they were in the 80's. Now they are low and slow and aid spin too. I think 3 spinners is correct and the Windies cant play spin well enough.
Maybe you got a point. But i dont think Bhajji and Mishra deserved a spot ! Mishra has been given to many oppurtunities and has disappointed. Ashwin is easily the best spinner in our side. Though we cant judge performance from IPL but Rahul Sharma was extremely impressive. But 2 WK was purely stupid. Rayudu (some call him part time WK)and Parthiv would have been a better option IMO.
Just wondering, how many of us bhpians play cricket? Now I have started a habit of playing cricket in office, (1) to improve the team's fitness and (2) as a team-building activity. Trust me it does wonders for the team bonding, and feels good too!
The funny thing is, I've never played cricket till now (not even in childhood, college years) and it feels good to learn basics at this age . As they say, "it's never too late".
One of my friends uploaded this video on YT. After watching, I feel Kohli over-reacted a bit but the crowd was also wrong on their part by making senseless comments (especially when you are returning back to the pavilion after a lost match). What's your take?
