    I certainly don't think he is cut out for Test cricket. I mean he will probably manage to have decent numbers in home Tests but will struggle in SENA pitches on most occasions. So it's a blessing in disguise that won't be part of Test team. I, for one, am happy about this.

    I think a player has earned the right to prioritize whether he wants to play IPL or international match.

    Guys, Rohit and Ishant haven't been ruled out of the tour. The release mentioned that they are monitoring their injury.

    I think we should be patient for a while till things clear.

    Where it has always been I guess. :p

    Haven't deleted it as far as I know. Wonder what you think about Chennai's last two games with them rotating the squad?

    I agree with this, but the player in question must also face the heat that will inevitably rise up when he prioritizes club over country. Rohit also pulled out of the last tour early after scoring a decent fifty due to the birth of his newborn which will further fuel any controversy as it did back then when he was unfavourably compared to Dhoni's stance when the latter faced a similar situation.

    I still think he will be a late addition to the squad, makes sense that they are prioritizing confirming and sending over players who are completely fit in the first place. Do not be surprised if Pant makes a late entry into the ODI squad too after he 'miraculously' passes whatever fitness test he was supposedly struggling with.

    Bairstow sitting out seems fair. He hasn't fired at all barring 2 innings if my memory serves me right. Saha is also not an good replacement but we have no other WK option left.

    Appears like SRH is trying to come up with the best possible combination with whatever resource it has in its bank. Not ideal but will have to make do with.

    @LiveLoveABD called out long ago, although I guess he would have wanted Goswami in the XI instead of Saha who is not any good with the bat at the moment.

    I've forgotten how good Warner was when he was fluent from the start. Looks imperious already.

    Bruh, we’re talking about a team which scored 17-7 in the last four overs in the previous match


    It’s far from over
