    I guess I just don't tend to rate those who get such a long rope selection wise without really justifying it. See also: Marsh, S
    In fairness I think a lot of Sharma's long rope was down to a lack of better options, and when the field started improve so did he. Different to Marsh getting multiple recalls when he didn't really deserve it.

    Ishant has improved his accuracy a bit and he always had the stamina to bowl long spells. With Bumrah and Shami taking the new ball, he is good enough to do the holding job. Been pretty good over the last few tours.

    So insecure Kohli doesn't skip the ODI and T20 part of this tour. Ganguly gave his opening position to Sehwag in ODI team for the benefit of team. Tendulkar skipped many ODI series between 2007-11 which helped in development of Gautam Gambhir . But insecure Kohli won't allow any youngster like Gill to develop nor would he
    resign from captaincy

    The thought that Kohli is insecure is quite hilarious. Insecure from what?

And still the game goes on.

    Cricket is slowly digested. Baseball doesn't have a thing on test cricket.

    He earns around 20-25 million dollar annually from brand endorsements. Any promising youngster batsman is a threat to him . Why do you think Dhoni is not retiring ? He also earns annually 10 million dollars from endorsements. The moment he retires , his earnings will take a huge hit.

    Probably some truth to that, as evidenced by when they dragged an old and fat RP Singh over to England mid tour.

    Still not an Ishant fan though
