    You and Tendulkar are similar. Gun early on, peaked and then carried on for too long and have been putting out junk for the last couple of years. Time you retire too.

    You sure you want that? It'll just invite more Bradman comparisons.
    Indian cricket fan : "Bradman got one duck in his final match. Tendulkar got two. So he's twice as good"

    Now i think about it, I agree with you.
    Greatest. Moment. Ever

    I've never been accused of ball tampering, at least.

    You've tampered with plenty of male balls

Rohit's not a test opener, but this will be one more case of looking to ODIs rather than FC to make decisions on test cricket
    Well Jadeja's been rested to get over his phantom injury so unless Ashwin bats 7 (possible I suppose) then Rohit could just come into the side at six.

    I'm actually quite scared they'll continue with Ishant + Bhuvneshwar and forget about Yadav.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if they actually picked the complete opposite to that and went with Yadav + Shami.

    Haha. Actually both scenarios feel like they're more likely to occur as opposed to what I would pick (Yadav + Bhuvneshwar).

    It would be the only thing he'll have in common with Bradman.

    That's not to say his ODI form hasn't hurt his chances of course
    He's actually going to play this time though.

    Unless Ashwin bats 7

    Shilly won't get the same pitches Lyon had to bowl on. And Lyon is at least as good as shilly. Did nearly as well as shilly in that same series where shilly picked ten. These two matches are likely to be flat track draws

    Given all of the selection blunders India has committed recently, I expect Ishant to be the 'spearhead' again

    So it took 16 posts for a hate post to show up. Hmm, much better than I expected.

    Would have said the exact same thing I said to Sledger to you ftr, i.e. similar to Tendulkar - past your prime and posting junk. However I could have gone even further and commented how your'e both old ****s.
