Ishant ****ing Sharma?
Stupid ****ers never learn.
hate the Binny selection as much as anyone; it's the selectors dreaming of what he could be, not what he is. But I can't fault them for the attitude, because presumably he fits in at 6 as part of an attacking test lineup. Of course, that doesn't make sense when Ashwin could do a much better job there, but whatever.
Like that Pankaj Singh and Pandey are getting gigs.
My team would be
11. Pankaj Singh.
Binny's only there because of his father being part of the selection panel. There is simply no other legitimate reason.
Dhoni needs to **** off from tests and stick to limited overs ****.
I don't understand why Rishi Dhawan is being ignored, his FC performances have been really good. India can use him as a 4th bowler to exploit the good pace bowling conditions or maybe go with 5 bowlers(4 pacers+1spinner) since he is a decent batsmen. Binny's selection is an interesting one, but he has been doing well in the 4 day games as an all rounder.

Looking forward to this one..and all kinds of questions to be answered..
1. Can India shake off their back to back defeats in SA and NZ and actually win this series?
2. have England fully recovered from the drumming they got in Australia?
3. Can Kohli and Pujara continue to impress in these kind of conditions?
4. What will the England spin option be now Swann is gone?
Should be fun to watch.

MY NAME IS WW, AND I'M A BORN AGAIN WINDIAN!!
I still believe India's best chance is to play 5 bowlers somehow, 3 seamers + 1 spinner hasn't worked so far, and we've seen 2 potential test match wins turned into draws because we ran out of stream way too early bowling wise (Not trying to take anything away from some of the innings the opposition players played). I think Rohit Sharma is talented and does deserve a place in the side, but for the sake of balance we have to drop him and play with Jadeja + Ashwin and 3 seamers. Both Jadeja and Ashwin together can more than equal Rohit Sharma batting wise.
I Sharma/Pankaj Singh
That would be my line up for the England series.
The problem with that is that I don't think Jadeja is likely to be better than any of the pace bowlers with the ball in English conditions. Hence why I take Pandey over him.
How the **** can any of you even consider Ishant for a spot in the XI? Has bowled one good spell in 5 years.
There'll be calls for Dravid and Tendulkar to be brought into the squad by the third day of the second Test
