    If that happens it will be a tragedy.

    One of those horrible scenarios when you actually consider cheering against your team for fear that a win is actually bad for your team in the long-run.

    Not that I'm blaming Duncan Fletcher since you can't obviously fault him for India's crap performances since he became coach, but I was never keen on him to begin with (hadn't even heard of him in all honestly). So I think he also needs to get the boot whenever his term ends.

    With a whole bunch of youngsters in the side over the coming years we need someone young who can bond with the players well.

    I wonder what the most # of new debuts have been in a single test match for an established Test nation? India should go for that record. It's the only record they're likely to get anytime soon.

    Sehwag. Another drop. Go away. Please.

    Dharmasena. Looked most likely out of anyone to create a wicket out of nowhere.

    Realistically, Trott isn't getting out today and will end about 160*.

    bell and trott mainly.

    i'd give bell 2.5
    trott 6.5 or maybe 7 ( after his 100 today)

    the runs they have scored today don't mean that much especially considering that the series ended last night and the pitch condition, although i'll give credit to trott for his long innings and his positivity.

    So if you're an Indian fan, and you really aren't happy with your team, how many guys do you drop?

    Well 2 were dropped before this test, GG needs to get the boot, Ishant as well and Chawla. I'd stick with the rest, at least until the Aussie series is over.

    Had Trott got out early in his innings, India were right in the game. Sure, it's been easier to go on with it than it often will be, but it has been a key innings IMO.

    His eyes are finished & his footwork is a mess probably as a result of his that.

    As mentioned earlier, I'm selfish when it comes to him, so no I wouldn't, although I won't complain if he does get dropped, or chooses to retire.

    I would drop Sehwag, Gambhir, Sachin, Dhoni, Sharma, Ashwin, Ohja.


    That's like 500 Tests worth of experience.

    Not like it's doing any good. For replacements: no ****ty fielders should be picked regardless of their other skills. And I can't believe this has to be said, how about not picking bowlers who've been averaging 50 in domestic cricket?
