    I hope and pray that now that Pujara has shown his class and the fact that Kohli has done well at times means they dispense with Yuvraj and give Badrinath/AN Other a chance. I can understand them not wanting to pick so many kids in the same line up but at home in a series they should comfortably win is the time to blood them instead of regurgitating past failures.

    What's happened to Sharma recently? Surely he's better than Yujrav...

    I find it really frustrating that the age card is played with regards to Bardrinath when 30 year old Yuvraj Singh is at 6 in the current test side.

    Badrinath/Rahane should be next in line but Yuvraj//Raina keep getting chances.

    After Badri/Rahane it should be Rohit Sharma/Abhinav Mukund, but it'll probably be Tiwary which won't be that bad at least in home conditions.

    Don't like Rahane being a backup opener either. He is more suited to the middle order probably, and Mukund should be the long term backup opener. (Not Vijay, imo).

    He's been ODI'd like Badri was.

    Has been unlucky in tests tbh. First time got injured day of the match against SA , and then was dropped based on ODI form.

    Second time didn't get a chance in Australia when he should have and then again despite dominating FC was dropped based on ODI form.

    The strange thing in this is that he keeps getting ODI chances which he probably doesn't deserve.

    India v England, 4th Test, Nagpur, 2nd day : Hello, Ajinkya Rahane here, anyone listening? | Cricket Features | India v England | ESPN Cricinfo

    Brilliant piece by Sid Monga on the travails of Ajinkya Rahane.

    Seriously worried he could become another Badri. Though, i guess he has done better in ODI's/IPL.

    His FC average has dropped from a crazy 69/70 to 63 now due to being inconsistently in and out and will probably be overtaken by Rohit Sharma come the next series now, as things stand and due to no fault of his own really.

    Though, having said that could write a somewhat similar piece about Rohit vis a vis tests too (Though Rahane has been consistently gunning from before). ****ing Yuvraj and Raina.

    Calm down the bloke is still younger than 25 and he's in the selectors eyes. Their fetish with Yuvi and Raina has been annoying but he's not a Badrinath yet.

    Yeah, but once they go past 27/28 the argument against them is that they are too old and we should now give someone young like Unmukt Chand/Mandeep Singh or someone else who will come up a go.

    Or even some other bloke who may be equally old but is performing in ODI's.

    Think his best route to the test side will be the ODI side now or the opener's slot even though he isn't a FC opener.

    Gambhir (only picking him because my knowledge of Indian openers is **** all, and he's better than Mukund and Murali Vijay)
    Rahane
    Pujara
    Sharma
    Kohli

    Is that really a terrible top 5?

    Also, is one of the Tiwarys not meant to be quite good?

    Who was the batsman who came over to England a couple of years ago on an A tour and gunned it? (or was that Pujara?)

    I voted Rahane, not letting stupid test match runs get in the way of my decision.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Manoj Tiwary is absolute beast in domestic cricket; in fact it's fair to say he's outperformed many of those selected ahead of him. He's done okay in the few ODIs he's played too. He's not rated as highly as the others though because he's technically pretty poor. I saw you make a post in the other thread about how you don't rate Mukund; you'd definitely not be a Tiwary fan in that case.

    Saurabh Tiwary is technically just as limited as Manoj from what I've seen and doesn't have a record anywhere near as outstanding, but he's only 22 (Manoj is 27) and has had a pretty decent start to his domestic career overall given that.

    I'm not sure what which you would've heard with "quite good" - probably Manoj because of his domestic exploits I'd say.
