    Meh, even against adaptable players there's enough risk in these shots to make throwing the ball to Kohli a reasonable gamble. Buttler has paddled the ball onto his own stumps more than once.

    I said specifically in the context of yesterday's game. Of course, a Butler and Root could have taken toll of him but then again, they might have struggled against Ashwin and Jadeja...

    Depends on the conditions. The last two games India played, there wasn't a lot of turn or bite. Without those, Ashwin and Jadeja are easy pickings.

    Yeah they would struggle more against the spinners (not Root but Buttler can get bogged down by left armers sometimes)

    Yeah Bangalore and Mumbai are known for that though... Eden Gardens would be different.
