India vs Windies
« on: October 01, 2018, 09:06:24 PM »

Windies touring India for a full series, disappointingly their gun players once again not interested/selected for the Test matches.

India Test squad: Virat Kohli (C), KL Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur

Windies Test squad: Jason Holder (C), Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich (wk), Shannon Gabriel, Jahmar Hamilton (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Sherman Lewis, Keemo Paul, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Jomel Warrican

India with at least one new opener with Dhawan axed. No Kumar, Ishant or Bumrah. Nair dropped despite being drinks boy for the last six matches

Gavaskar was righfully mad about the way they treated Nair. Definitely pathetic. If you don't have confidence in him, don't pick him.

And now telling him that he needs to score heavily in domestic (which he couldn't as he was carrying drinks btw). And those that did (Mayank Agarwal, Shaw and Vihari) have overtaken him.

Dowrich must be the worst keeper/batsmen doing the rounds in test or even international cricket

India should walk this

India's 18 year old boy wonder Prithvi Shaw to debut. I don't understand how they go about their selection policies. Mayank Agarwal the other uncapped opener missed out despite reportedly averaging over 60 over the last two years. Vihari also chopped after one match. Kohli also tried avoiding questions about Nair. Be a man and tell everyone you don't like him.

So India will probably beat the Windies and Shastri will come out boasting about how great a side this one is.

Team selection is quite baffling. As an Indian supporter, I really want Windies to run them close so that people seriously pay heed to the huge chinks in the bloody armor.

Tbh,  Nair hasn't performed well ever since that triple century either in domestic cricket or in the A tours while Shaw/Mayank and Vihari have scored a lot. So I don't think it is a surprise the team management/selectors don't have confidence in him based on current form. Going back to domestic cricket and scoring runs is best advice for him right now and taking in form batsmen is a good decision by the selectors.

Should scrap the toss and allow away teams to decide what they want to do.

Shaw smashes a run a ball century on debut. Pujara right at home on these northern Indian pitches

This Prithvi Shaw looks like the real deal! Scary that he seems to be right at home at such a young age!
If he can play the swinging ball too, then they may have found a very special batsman! With opening batsmen in short supply in Test cricket, I am rather envious!

Why pick him in the first place? Here the issue is that he was not given the chance to play the domestic matches and score the runs which the others did.

Fair play to him scoring a century on debut at such a young age but it has to be said it is at home against a woeful WI side. Lets see how he gets on against the Aussies away from home before we start saying he's special etc...

I'd say that Shaw is closer to Sehwag than Tendulkar tbh. Footwork is less fluid and he plays with his hands more. Anyone that watched the u19 World Cup, Gill was the better batsman.

Spot on.  Those lads who have been discarded after the England tour would have killed for the chance to open the batting on a nothing wicket against an attack of barely first class standard.  He is a young lad so plenty of time to work on his game, but right now his limited footwork and chasing the ball way from his body would make him a dream to bowl to with a moving ball
