He can score runs in abundance rest of the time and that's precisely what this indian team set for a new journey under kohli needs. Couldn't start so much hatred towards dhawan. It could be probably to the fact that he frequently squanders his wicket after a good start way too easily
    Dhawan has been terrible outside Asia. After 13 tests, he averages 35 over all. Even in first class cricket his average is just 44. Dhawan has actually improved a lot since when he was a batsman in his early 20s but till he proves himself outside the subcontinent, boundaries might be lurking but the balls will reach the fielders rather than the boundary more often than not.

    Re Rohit Sharma playing ahead of Pujara, ffs, this is bull****. I remember how Raina played a test recently. These things shouldn't happen. The argument that Rohit Sharma may score runs is a flawed one. He is a poorer test player than Pujara, even in Asia.

    If it comes to be revealed that Kohli thinks Dhawan>KL and Rohit>Pujara, then I will haunt Jono for 6 months straight, every day.

    Wow, really? Rahul has proven himself at the domestic level, showed he can bat in difficult conditions abroad. Now you want them to snub him?

    Agree and he was rightly dropped too.Ignoring him for test in Asia where he averages more than 100 is not such a bad decision (Mind you ,kohli wouldn't have selected him if Rahul was fit, which is again a wise decision). All i am saying is it surprising to see a player who was the top scorer in the last biggest tournament team the team played, who averages more than 100 in Asia(where the current match is played) need to justify so much of his selection.

    For all the ridicule that Dhawan gets for being poor overseas, it is ironic he is actually the leading run scorer for india in ODI's overseas last two years.Shame on him for not being disciplined enough in the longer version
    "Flight was his secret, flight and the curving line, now higher, now lower, tempting, inimical; every ball like every other ball, yet somehow unlike; each over in collusion with the others, part of a plot. Every ball a decoy, a spy sent out to get the lie of the land; some balls simple, some complex, some easy, some difficult; and one of them—ah, which?—the master ball"
    - Neville Cardus, in his Autobiography, writing of Wilfred Rhodes

    tomorrow is the worst. Rain forecast in the next days too. I think its going to be one of those on and off several times during a day kind of match. Threatening clouds moving away though for today

    Oh, so it's ok for Sangakkara and Tendulkar to inflate their averages by bashing Bangladesh but it shouldn't count when Dhawan does the same? That's fair

    Dhawan should undoubtedly continue as opener in the SC for as long as he shows this form. There's no need to rush Rahul into the team for test matches in the SC even if he's ready, until there's a genuine need.
