    Ganguly is the new BCCI president. Big news. Excited to see how he does. And how he and Kohli will get along.

    Credit to Kohli for the sheer desire to excel and win. This is different from past heroes who when not getting result tended to be content with personal records.

    I'd say one out of 5 should be rotational tbh.

    1st Test Delhi - Variable bounce

    2nd Test Chennai - Classic red soil spin friendly track or a road depending on who we play

    3rd Test at Dharamshala (or a random venue that changes every time) - Bounce, pace and cracks on day 4

    4th Test Kolkata - Green track for the lolz

    5th Test Mumbai - Spin friendly or a normal Indian track that starts out being friendly to batsmen before deteriorating or becoming a road
    I am proud of this post.

    Well Motera definitely has to be one of the 5, considering they have splurged on it to be the world's biggest stadium.

    Would remove Mumbai. Mohali and Bangalore are better.

    5 is too few. About 8 would be right. As I said in other thread, traditionally the venues that got tests were limited to – Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Kanpur, Nagpur, Mohali. Limit to these venues. No point taking tests to Ranchi, Vizag or Indore.

    They should play a few tests at Afghanistan's home ground as well. That should be done twice a year.

    Kohli essentially wants to emulate Australia and England where teams who come to play a 4 or 5 test series know where they are going to play beforehand and there are some expectations built in with each venue and that creates a legacy in due course of time.

    Not a bad idea.

    Tough to see Prithvi Shaw getting a look in after this series. No one to blame but himself

    Pretty sure Dharamshala has had just 1-2 tests. Do they get much crowds there? I doubt.

    Dharamshala is the weird one which makes this so difficult. Delhi and Mumbai should definitely be out of the fray imo.

    Ahmedabad (Motera), Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Mohali the top 5 probably.

    Yeah frustrating how he seems to have screwed himself out of a chance for a few years. Pretty amazing how everything seemed to come together at the right time for Rohit.
