What I said keep saying is that he's not a good enough keeper/batsman to play for India in Tests and that I think his Test batting average vastly inflates his ability; I still think that's true so I'm not going to taste that.

    Enough of that though. I've only just started watching today but it seems like an awesome partnership between Kohli and Dhoni. Full credit to both of them, whether the latter should be playing or not.
    DWTA.

    Well yeah, he has been dire for the past year or so and probably deserved the sack by now, but don't think a average of 37/38 massively inflates his ability tbh.

    He looks even worse than other batsman during a slump, but he is mentally strong and people have been going a bit overblown with the criticism of him and particularly his keeping which has been fine this series tbh considering he captains too.

    Anderson on just before tea, be interesting to see if he bowls straight after or not. Been another great session for India but they know a wicket might cause a collapse and give the initiative back to England. Whatever happens they will only be about level at close at best if they get that far.

    Yes, I am aware that some people disagree with my assessment.

    2+ sessions no wicket. Kohli haters can suck a fat one so hard. Such ridiculous criticism.

    Onions could've probably made the difference IMO. Looks like an England win is unlikely the way these two are going.

    Criticism of his batting this series? Yes.

    Criticism of his test career? No. Saying he should be dropped? Ridiculous.

    it was justified (with respect to this series) and i believe it was more like people venting their frustration after high hopes..

    Suggesting Kohli should be dropped considering how Gambhir, Sehwag and Sachin have batted for the last 12 months was not "justified" whatsoever.

    The bloke scored a ton 4 tests ago ftr.

    Oh and saying irrational **** just because you're frustrated isn't an excuse. I will still call you out on it.

    I was one of the few who defended him, just a good player out of nick. Found some here though and about time.
