There's a reason why it's called 'PooPindia'. I mean one could easily write an article, make an arguable case for Virat being a better cricketer. The numbers are there for the article to be a good one. But when you're obsessed with tagging your countrymen, this is the best effort
There's a reason why I said this. There is hardly any data to even say who voted for who. Any Indian could have also voted for ABD, and I am sure there would have been some. What would that make them, pro SA? This one publication can only & only label
Indians in the name of nationalism. How sick your definition of nationalism could be when you label your own countrymen everyday. Pathetic & disgusting.

Think adjusting for OS spinners in Asia on their first tour is very similar to how Asian pacers adjust outside Asia. Mostly, the first tour is a struggle regardless of quality because they are not able to judge the right kind of line & length to bowl. Sharing the numbers for Lyon
Swann & Panesar to add some weight to what I want to say.

Swann avged 39.5 & took 8 wkts at a SR of 75.3 in his first tour to Ind (& Asia) (08-09). In 2012, he avged 24.75 & took 20 wkts at . Massive improvement which was also due to one tour each in BAN, UAE & SL. Image
Panesar took 5 wkts from 6 inns at an avg of 62.4 & SR of 141 in his first tour to IND (2006). In 2008/09, he avged 50.5 & took a wkt every 101 deliveries for his 6 wkts. Those numbers came down to 26.82 (avg) & 64.5 (SR) with him taking 17 wkts. Again, constant improvement. Image

Thank you @cricvidya team for inviting me. It was a pleasure to talk about the SCG test & discuss the issues around it. Posting the clip where I speak about the issue of racism & how we all must collectively work towards eradicating it by some individual steps by being more aware
of what we say. We must take a leaf out of @Eoin16's book & appreciate diversity and embrace it fully like he did when he spoke of @englandcricket's success in #CWC19 & how diversity was a pillar for it. (2)
Lastly, we must look within ourselves and call out the racism at home first (have spoken of Hardik Pandya & the jokes he keeps receiving on his skin colour) while we are standing with our people who are being subject to racism abroad. We shouldn't be selective in anyway and

Mostly I am never in favour of an unfit player or a less than 100% player to be play a game. But considering how this tour has gone by, don't think anyone is 100% fit. Considering India will be okay with Bumrah in India, I feel the call to play him should be left with him only.
If he feels to confident to take the load and is 60-70% percent fit, think the Team Management should back him. But this is such a tough call really. The team has done all the hard work to reach here despite all the injuries and whatever call they take, they will face criticism
If Bumrah plays and aggravates his injury, which will also mean that India don't win, the criticism will be huge, and T20 fanatics will lose it too. But if he doesn't play and lose by a fan margin, the questions will still be asked that should the team have risked playing him?

You can, because 3 bowlers carrying an attack makes other even more injury prone. Not only that, but the potency is lost as well.

Lords 2011- Zaheer out, Harbhajan, Ishant & Praveen Kumar had to bowl in both innings the majority of the overs.
Bhajji got ruled out after the 2nd Test. Ishant got ruled out for the last one which meant that an unfit RP was bowling at the oval. Similarly Ishant got injured again in Lords 2014 after his 7 fer & a part of that was him bowling a lot of overs because Binny wasn't good enough
to be a 5th bowler that day. In fact, I'd even say this that a lot of tests IND couldn't even overseas was because they didn't have a 5th bowler. Wellington 2014, Joburg 2013, Cape Town 2011 are the most recent examples that come to mind. A 5th bowler isn't just necessary to keep

Have been hearing a lot about the limit of OS players increasing in the IPL if teams are increased because there isn't enough quality in the domestic talent. I am not sure how I feel about that because almost every team in IPL misuses local talent & create problems for them (1/n)
Starting with RR. They could have easily played Manan Vohra in place of Uthappa, and an Akash Singh in place of Unadkat. It took them time to play Tyagi as well. They didn't play a Markande too in place of Shreyas. RR had good options, they didn't use them. (2/n)
Until CSK got eliminated, they didn't play their bench. KM Asif still didn't get a game. And we all saw what Ruturaj did. CSK's stubbornness to play a Kedar, Piyush hurt them. Who knows what could have been the results if they would have nurtured the talent well. (3/n)
