Yes, Bumrah has actually lasted multiple tests at a time and put in more than 2 performances against top teams so should get in.
Gillespie got it together in the end. Hopefully Bumrah does the same. Hazelwood is a big disappointment. It's sad. He would be top dog if his body allowed.We haven’t really produced bowlers good enough to leave someone like Bumrah out tbh. If we had bowlers like Hazlewood and Gillespie, then they would probably be better options.
India 2nd Innings (Following on)Nah, if there's one thing I can guarantee you it's that Laxman at 3 and Dravid down the order will never work...

Never mind the writers when May’s cricketing contemporaries raved about him.…No. May is overrated by writers of the period. And Denis Compton is about the most overrated HTB ever (and never gets called out on it)
Pant for Dhoni. Otherwise looks good. Harsh on Kumble but someone has to miss out.What the general consensus on the Indian ATG xi these days?
Others I consider are Chardra, Kumble, Engineer, Merchant, Hazare, Laxman and Srinath, but I think the above combo would be winners
