    Nah, these NZ pitches have a nasty habit of easing out after a session or two, we need batting depth. One extra batsman can be the difference between getting bowled out for 150 and out of the match in 2 sessions vs. scraping 300+ and staying in with a chance.

    Im still tempted to go with ashwin over jadeja because hes flat out a better bowler, but agree that vihari should play regardless. He offers an additional troll spin option too.

    He's seriously unlucky not to have got these home tests to pile up some easy runs

    Ashwin's a better bowler due to his variety, but I feel NZ just wouldn't suit his style. He needs the pitch to give him some assistance because he doesn't get as many revs on the ball or overspin as the likes of Lyon.

    Maharaj had great success over there a few years back, it would be interesting to see how he bowled on that tour. Apart from him, I can barely remember a spinner doing anything noteworthy in NZ for years. Harbhajan bowled well when we won over there in 2009.

    Honestly, it would be great to have all 4 pacers and Vihari + Rohit to bowl some spin to give them a break + for the over rate.

    India are primed for the overseas cycle. As ready as they could be imo. Great set of players, a number of them being present when they bottled the previous one. Will have to win both in NZ and Aus to be really remembered as a great team imo.

    Lyon did well on his single tour there (10 wickets @ 22.6) but admittedly 2 Tests is a tiny sample size.

    That's fine, NZ play max 3 match series anyway so it counts.

    I definitely think India have to go in with four bowlers. They will need the batting depth in NZ. Even (gasp!) if it means four pacers. But I think I would still pick Bumrah, Sharma, Shami and Ashwin.

    What's the deal with Prithvi Shaw? Are we going to be able to see his form in domestic cricket prior to the tour now that he is back in the fold? He might be a good pick to take in the squad, even if he doesn't play.

    Jadeja did well in England in the one Test he got as well as in Australia in two games. The way spinners have gone in NZ recently makes me think we just need the spinner to hold one end up, which Jadeja is better at. Athlai posted a ridiculous stat today which said that NZ had taken 100+ wickets in a row from fast bowling at home until Santner broke it today. Those factors, along with Jadeja's batting tilts it in his favour for me.

    If we didn't have a good pace attack I'd be much more tempted to play Ashwin because he's a better bowler, but also more likely to not turn up. No need to run that risk.

    If you're going to do that, I'd rather just play four pacers. Yes, the workload can be an issue, but it's a short series.

    I mean it's not literally bowl over the wicket on leg stump hold one end up, he's just tighter in general, even when he's being attacking.

    Just realized that Bangladesh lost two Tests in less than (or approximately) five days of cricket. This series somehow managed to be even more one-sided than the SA one preceding it.

I just don't see a situation where a skilled spinner will have a chance to bowl us to a win over there, because the pitches just don't break up. We need a defensive spinner who can give the quicks a break and keep the runrate to a minimum.

    Agarwal
    Rohit
    Pujara
    Kohli
    Rahane
    Vihari
    Jadeja
    Saha
    Ishant
    Shami
    Bumrah

    Umesh desperately unlucky to miss out, but what can you do.

    Santner says hello.

    Its actually a very defensive move and something I hope to God they do not do. If we are playing 3 seamers and a spinner, it has to be Ashwin who can at least look like picking wickets. Jadeja, at home, over the last 5 tests, and in the Windies has been abjectly woeful with the ball. No amount of 50s and sword dances should hide that basic fact.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Genuinely surprised to find out that this was a WTC series. Clearly I have not been paying attention enough
