    Rohit Sharma's nearing a double hundred against Punjab. Give the boy a chance against Aus.

    good point.

    Open Rahane, bat Rohit in the middle order.

    Honestly if Rohit and Kohli bat together in a test I will cum so much in my pants, even if they both get a golden duck.

    I'm sure you will, but yeah those two need to get their **** together fast. Actually, Sharma needs a ****ing chance first but those two in full cry would be some sight.

    In all seriousness, Rohit was in the Australia squad and then fell behind for dubious reasons. Pujara returned from injury and was ahead of him before that, so fair enough. But you get the feeling he's being written off because of his poor pyjama cricket exploits, when possibly, that's simply not his game. His first class record is supreme. Would be shocked if he's not in the Indian team by the end of the year.

    Probably will walk in once Sachin goes (unless they want to play Rahane at 4).

    Rohit Sharma should've been in the team two years ago. Anyone who has seen him bat can see he's a class act. If they brought him in back then and he failed he could've been dropped and re-introduced as a player who has learned his game.

    On a separate topic:

    England in India 2012-13 : Gautam Gambhir shrugs off his struggles | Cricket Features | India v England | ESPN Cricinfo

    Great article by Monga on Gambhir.

    His recent failings completely correlate with India's issues. He was key to India doing well from 2008-2010. He used to be a player that gave it his all and busted his gut for every run. He really is in denial nowadays, pretending like he doesn't have an issue converting scores and that he doesn't have a ridiculously obvious weakness outside off stump.

    That dumb ****ing poke.

    Seems like it's a flat wicket, tbf.

    Mandeep Singh also double tonned in the first inning.

    Got injured in the morning of the test, when he was supposed to make his debut against South Africa 3 years ago iirc. Saha had to play as a batsman that game and Steyn was in full flow.

    Both Badri and him got dropped/overlooked after that series based on ODI form, and Yuvraj/Raina kept getting selected based on the same.

    He's an Ian Bell IMO. A player who looks a lot better than he really is.

    how did this convo get so far without someone pointing bollinger then went on to break down in his nest match (which just about won the test for india)
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
