    Saw him in Challengers, looked completely out of sorts. I thought that maybe with some ranji games he will get his rhythm back but it seems he hasnt.

    Rasool hits a ton in 101 balls to force a result against Kerala and how many double tons has Pujara already scored in domestic cricket?

    Sehwag out cheaply again. Gambhir trying to hold an end up. Fans wish Gambhir was playing in South Africa- when he couldn't hold up against England at home. This leg of Ranji will be dull. Mumbai missing their top players, Vidarbha missing Umesh, Delhi missing Ishant, but it depends on whom you're following. Rajasthan/MP will be an important game. Jharkhand now as competitive as hosts Mumbai, but a win is still unlikely, and they may drop to the bottom.

    J&K Cricket is in a mess. Now they're at 52/5. Parvez Rassool needs to pack up and leave for a team that doesn't insist on living on oxygen supply. The fresh air of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan or Delhi will do him a lot of good.

    What more does Pankaj Singh have to do to play for India? Move to Saurashtra? Get a CSK contract? Get five wickets in an innings? Wait, he just did, for 30, and MP is bowled out for 115. Get ten wickets in the match?

    Rishi Dhawan fan mail keeps pouring in, and in the light of the twin failure of Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar in the first ODI, calls for his India debut are getting louder. I thought, he can wait, but seeing how underpowered Bucky is and his struggles on something flat and bouncy, a good season should have him coming ahead.

    Saurabh Tiwary close to a hundred, even as Jharkhand's batting fails again. Just how relevant is his innings? I'm not sure, since he hasn't changed the course of any match with his good form, as they're losing game after game, bar one. But batting isn't an issue- those in the Indian team now are better (fair, not Yuvraj Singh or Suresh Raina, but still) and the competition is tight. What we want are tearaway pacers and strike bowler all-rounders.

    Samson out for zero. Yet some fans want him to 'play for India before his talent gets wasted'. Elsewhere, TN are trying to push for a result against problem-ridden Baroda, but will their spin-friendly pitch actually aid Baroda in surviving another relegation scare?

    Even as Pankaj's team is doing well on the back of his five-for, his rival in MP, IC Pandey, has taken four so far. Good to see some rivalry resulting in a wicket haul. Elsewhere, Varun Aaron scalps two early ones, and the few games he's played, have been very productive for him.

    What is happening at Kannur? This is a minefield, worse than what Baroda had laid for their game against MP.

    Wait, what? Weaklings of Group A, Jharkhand and Vidarbha, are on top of their respective games against heavyweights Mumbai and Punjab!

    Rishi Dhawan has a massive fan following- not surprisingly, Irfan Pathan did earlier. Seam bowling all-rounders, doing very well in Indian domestic events. Fans love them. It's a pity there are not too many. In the current scenario, Bhuvneshwar Kumar would be ideally better than Dhawan, since he's done well against top-tier (and later middle-tier) teams, and has maintained good records in ODs as well, and eventually became an ODI regular- but the brazen demolition in Jo'burg has shown him up to be small, slow and limited heavily- and the wrong choice for a strike bowler. I'm not sure he can even play for India after this series. The other option was Ashish Reddy, but both he and his team (Hyderabad) are in such dire straits, it makes no sense backing them. Abhishek Nayar is not an option- he barely bowls. Rajat Bhatia is an option, but he's no strike bowler, and India won't get green-tops all the time. Laxmi Ratan Shukla hits the deck hard and moves the ball well, but poor form in the recent season won't help. And the former fan favourite Irfan Pathan is struggling to stay fit.

    In the spin all-rounder camp, we already have Ashwin, and the people running the team think they have one in Jadeja. This half is a lot more promising, but I'd be wary of giving Parvez Rassool an India cap due to lack of experience. Iqbal Abdulla is a neat OD bowler, but if he can't play for Mumbai, how can he play for India? Bipul Sharma is doing well for HP, ironically, Rishi Dhawan's team, but he's doing a lot less with the ball than needed, in terms of overs. Yusuf Pathan, unfit, out of form and out of favour, has had an upswing only recently, at his home ground, Moti Bagh- where his statistics are massively better than in the rest of India.

    Big fight in Bengal/Railways clash, over Murali Kartik running out Sandipan Das- Mankading. Sandipan given out, Bengal coach Ashok Malhotra gets into argument with Kartik "Is this how you play cricket?" You've got to love Kartik now.

    Pretty stupid of the batsmen to start walking out early especially to someone like Kartik who has a history with this sort of thing. Knowing him he probably gave a warning or two as well.

    Should still be in the Test side. Don't even care* if he hasn't taken any wickets since 2010; I want him in there.

    * NB: This may or may not be because I don't actually care if India do well or not.
