Just can't wrap my head around - still - the XI that @ImRo45 & #RahulDravid have gone with. How the hell did they leave out R Ashwin?
Btw, the bloke we are talking about is our most incisive Test bowler ever (if you look at wickets taken, bowling average & strike rate)
..& arguably among the top 2 spinners of all time (only Murali has a better record than him in terms of bowling avg among all spinners who have played a minimum of 50 Tests & have taken a min. of 200 Test wickets), and Ashwin has a far better strike rate than Murali did.
Among all spinners, only Jadeja has a comparable bowling avg., but then Ashwin has a far better strike rate.

Stats don't lie. Ashwin has been far & away our best bowler ever - not just our best spinner. Why then does the team mgmt regularly bench him? Had he been born in Eng

We all know how legendary #RahulDravid was as a test batsman, but what all of us probably fail to appreciate is how accomplished he was in the coloured clothing & the 50-over format...Dravid right through his career as an ODI player, had to fight against the image (1/n)
Of him being a test batsman & thus unsuitable to playing the shorter formats...that meant that since his ODI debut in ‘96 against Sri Lanka in the Singapore Challenge Cup till the ‘99 tour of New Zealand, he found himself constantly being shuttled in or out of the squad (2/n)
Because for every time he looked like getting into the groove of things in ODI cricket like in the ‘97 Standard Bank ODI Tri-Series final against South Africa, he’d have that one game where he would just stall & not be able to move up the gears...the ‘99 tour (3/n)

#RahulDravid's traits and long term investing are so analogous. Here's a small thread on how they are relatable.

Keep on playing dot balls till you find the right one to smash.
Ignore all the noise. The ups, the downs, the tips and recommendations. Stick to the plan and invest in selected companies like dravid selects the deliveries. (1/3)
Stay on the pitch. The more you stay, the chances of scoring increases. Keep invested in the stock. Stocks of good businesses do not multiply every year. They may multiply in few weeks. You just need to wait. (2/3)
