Don’t think so .Maybe he will replace Bhogle but in the initial list I only saw Hussain and Artheron as neutral commentators . Might be misremembering though.

That can happen because plenty of players retire after a big tournament. However the question is whether that XI had previously played together as well?

Maybe if we had included Thakur in the 15. Now it’s very unlikely.

Because you need 5 bowling options and in the words of curator himself the wicket won’t be a seaming one .

If it was then Thakur would have been on the 15 man squad

We will definitely go with 5 bowing options. Only was would go with 4 bowlers is if Saha was keeper and needed batting depth.

But with Rishab there is no such concern and allows us the flexibility of 5 bowlers. Particularly with the form Jadeja has been with the bat recent years.

Mayank doesn’t make the cut means Gill will open for certain .

Think the team pretty much picks itself apart from one fast bowler slot

Rohit / Gill / Pujara / Kohli / Pant / Rahane / Jadeja / Ashwin / Shami or Siraj / Ishant / Bumrah

Certain to be left out : Vihari , Saha and Umesh . Will probably go with Shami ahead of Siraj for the experience.

This bit surprised me

At home in the past four summers, according to Wisden, Root has averaged 32. Yes, the Dukes ball makes batting tricky. But England’s best batsman has actually been England’s seventh-best batsman, behind Ben Stokes (average 44), Zak Crawley (43), Jos Buttler (40), Cook (37), Rory Burns (35) and Dom Sibley (35).

Not sure why he struggles so badly in home conditions

Social Media A ndy Robertson created 6 chances vs Czech Republic , the most by any player in a EURO2020 game so far.

10 of our XI are settled and certain to start barring any injuries .

Only question is between Shami and Siraj . I would go with Siraj personally as Shami hasn’t played much red ball cricket recently but can team going with the experience of Shami in such a big game .

Rohit

Gill

Pujara

Kohli

Pant

Rahane

Jadeja

Ashwin

Shami

Ishant

Bumrah

Pace bounce and carry would really suit us because that will bring both Ashwin and Jadeja into the game .

10

COMMENT 2d ago

If there is pace bounce and carry it doesn’t just suit fats bowlers but also spinners significantly.

COMMENT 2d ago

We collapsed in the day session . So it was really seam movement that did us in not swing movement .

COMMENT 2d ago

Should add Pant as well.

Can we ban Anderson for 6 tests . That should do the trick and make him learn his lessons.

I am not watching the match but uneven bounce on day 1 is a sign of poor wicket.

Santer is a left arm spinner not a leg spinner.

We went big for Gowtham because we lacked an Indian off spinner not a backup for Jadeja. Santer is kinda the Jadeja backup. Jadeja was always expected to be fit for IPL so that was never a plan. Infact everyone thought he would be fit for the England odi series but got delayed.

Dhoni has always played Jadeja alongside an off spinner. So if Moeen isnt available Gowtham will play alongside Jadeja.

COMMENT 13d ago

It Moeen Ali isn’t available then Gowtham will definitely play. Dhoni loves playing off spinners

COMMENT 13d ago

Pretty sure Beherendoff will also be available as he doesn’t get picked for Aus national team .

Hindus of Southern India marry father’s sister’s daughter/son. What exactly is your point ?

COMMENT 14d ago

Marrying Father’s sister’s daughter is pretty common in Souther India too. Not every culture is the same .
