    ffs BCCI, there is no way this would be able to happen if it was Australia or England they were playing, who the **** are SA gonna play on boxing day as well? Most countries will be booked out by the sounds of it, way to **** over a cricket board.

    Meanwhile the SL tour to Zim is doubtful now, and SL are trying to find another opponent, Australia, NZ, WI and England have all been approached.

    I see Kohli has been awarded something called the Arjuna award.

    I assume this is awarded annually to the biggest **** to captain an international cricket time in the preceding 12 months?

    Cricinfo reporting that they'll be two tests against the Windies before the SA tour.

    Which is pretty worrying for India, as I think Tendy might call it quits right before their biggest possible challenge....

    Will be happy with a couple of tests squeezed in before the tour.

    I nearly predicted this in April as you might remember, but I thought the two test series would be with SL. I guess India-WI is the new India-SL. Be happy for the bcci. This means fewer useless Odis and t20s v SA before the SA test series.

    This is actually great news for India. Tendulkar does not warrant a place in the side and if it takes this series to ease him out, then I'd take it. I'd rather take a talented debutant who has earned a spot in the xi through ranji & india A over an experienced non-performer. Even if the newcomer fails, it serves as a valuable learning experience and gives the selectors a better idea of the quality of the talent coming up through the ranks.

    It's not clear to me what experience brings to the table if not backed by performance. Experience is nice to have because it helps us know what a player is capable of, but watching tendulkar get dismissed in recent times, it's obvious that he's not capable of what he once could do

    I think there could be a time when India line up for a test with this XI in batting order..


    Dhawan
    Pujara
    Kohli (vc)
    Rohit
    Raina
    Dhoni (wk) (c)
    Jadeja
    Ashwin
    Bhuvi
    Ishant
    Umesh



    Honestly, not the worst side we can put out on the park, if Raina can somehow get decent against short pitched bowling..

    Experience is not just about a player's own performance, but what he can add to the side outside of just batting/bowling, like giving tips to youngsters etc.

    Anyways this a bit of a shock in some ways, I really hope that this is just to have Sachin's 200th test @ home rather than a signal of his retirement
    I also hope the SA tour still goes through with at least 3 tests, idc about the ODI's and T20.

    There's no way Raina should even smell the test squad given his bad/mediocre Ranji performances. Tons of players more qualified then him. Rahane, Saha, DK, Badri, Manoj (if he can stay healthy), even Rayudu, and more than a few others I'm failing to mention
    Raina has other problems aside from the short ball
    And the sooner Ishant is gone, the better.
