    It wouldn't have mattered if you had 5 Mcgraths or 5 Muralis bowling 50 overs in these pitches.

    I don't disagree completely, but I am quite concerned whether Dhawan's technique and temperament is good enough to be successful in South Africa.

    Jeesh, I just realised if you give up booze for over a month, and this place becomes infinitely worse, I'll try not to do that again.

    I think the best thing that can be said about this series is it's over.

    I agree, but he deserves the chance to find out. If he bats the same in Tests in South Africa as he does ODIs in India then he'll be found out badly, but I think you do have to give highly successful batsmen the benefit of the doubt to change their approaches to suit. Furthermore, I don't think Vijay's technique will hold up in South Africa either.

    If Vijay is terribad in the 1st test, I hope Rahane is given a go. Or Pujara or Sharma will have to open as a stop gap solution.

    I share similar concerns with most Indian batsmen tbh, but I think a dasher might have more luck against the SA pace attack than someone trying to play them out with a poor technique

    Anyone notice the hint of Sidhu about Dhawan's play? Especially on the front foot or the slap.

    I get where you're coming from, tbh. When people make jokes about Tendulkar, Indian cricket, or say things like what Rob did a couple pages back, deep down I do feel like calling them ****s and fiercely defending my country. (It's the same reason why English posters get so touchy when we mention their imports ftr) But I called you a knob because you decided to irrationally defend Dhawan by bringing up an equally dickish yet unrelated incident involving Watson, as if all the posters here were unfairly conspiring against him and India or something.
    Love your work Daemon. Gun post.

    Sidhu the only guy by my recollection to genuinely make Warne change his approach, tbh.

    I'd say Vijay is even less likely to succeed than Dhawan in SA.

    I'll rebut this post as soon as we find a quality spinner.
