    Which is why he averages nearly 60 in Ranji?

    He has always had a mediocre record in domestic List A and should've probably been dropped from the ODI squad long ago, but he has held his own as an opener when all other Indian batsmen aside from Dhawan have failed (Vijay, Gambhir, Sehwag, Rahane). It's pretty obvious that Rohit isn't that composed and patient when chasing. He's always trying to play a shot that's not there to be played. At least as an opener, he's insulated from some of that pressure.

    But it's not his fault if his opportunities are in the wrong format.

    I too feel that Rahane perhaps would be a better choice. To be honest, however ludicrous it may sound, I prefer Rohit in the team over both Dhawan and Murali Vijay.

    I'd pick both Rohit and Rahane, and just dump Jadeja.

    interesting.......Imran writes an article on Sachin's retirement

    Sachin Tendulkar's passion set him apart: Imran Khan - The Economic Times
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Yes, Jadeja should only be a horses for courses selection in tests, chosen to play in pitches that will aid playing 3 spinners..Rest of the matches should have both Rahane and Rohit..but with Kohli at 4 and them playing after Kohli..

    I'd be looking to play Jadeja whenever I wanted to play two spinners, even if he ended up at 8. Has more value than Ojha, Harbhajan or Mishra IMO.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    You take my pawn, I take your rook. You take my bishop, I take your queen. You take my knight, I buy Mayfair. Because while you were busy playing chess, I've been playing Monopoly the entire time.

    I was constructing an alternate reality where Tendulkar had not departed in the 96 wc semi, and India had gone on to become champions. He would have been a much happier man for all those years..

    Chennai 99 more tragic imo...

    Just saw an interview of his with Arnab Goswami from about a year back where he was asked to name a few moments from his career. He named the 96 semifinal, the 2003 final, 2007 world cup, and finally the Chennai test. He seemed almost in tears just talking about it, quite depressing to watch

    that Chennai 99 was such an awesome innings..........more painful to him would be the fact that the rest of the tail just folded within 3 runs or so

    I am a huge Sachin fan but still have this question. We all know Sachin has a penchant for records though he denies to the outside world that he cares for records. So what if he gets injured in the first test? Will he still retire? Or will he play the SA series to complete 200 tests? Or will BCCI arrange another series at home cancelling the SA series if Sachin recovers soon?

    I do believe he will still retire but was just thinking about this hypothetical scenario.

    As I have seen, the records he seems to be passionate about are winning trophies, and scoring centuries. Hard to believe he was playing for the 200th test mark this whole time, although stranger things have been done by greater minds.

    They'd just play him with an injury.
