    The problem with Indian Broadcast is they look for marketable sports Icons... marketable icons who appeals to north Indian sports fans mostly.... but there are not too many knowledgable sports commentators in north... you got one Harsha Bhogle but he lacks experiential knowledge of cricket and others who have reasonably good technical knowledge have not played much cricket, besides language is a barrier for most of us Indians.... a couple of guys who can be great commentators such as Ganguly and Dravid are both office bearers of BCCI and cant be commentators.... I am looking forward to Ashwin donning the technical expert commentator role and zi am sure he will be the next big thing in Indian sports commentary +1

    I've been glued to the screen watching the India series down here in Oz, and I have to say that as an England supporter the lads need to be fitter and harder than they have ever been before to cope and win what's ahead of them. They need some young lads and the guys who are in there now need to feel like they have to play for their spot every single match. Test cricket has upped the speed and strength, England will need to play out of the skin to even win a test down here in Oz, I cannot emphasise enough how hard and fit they will need to be. +12

    Surely it is literally impossible for England to even win a single test match in India. Last in 2016 when they toured India, 2 times they won the toss batted 1st scored 400 to 500 runs in the 1st innings and still India thrashed them like anything and won the series 4-0. Currently without a doubt India simply has the world best bowling attack in Test Cricket. Brilliant fast bowlers as we as spinners.Will be interesting to see how Ben Stokes performs this time in India. Also will eager to see how Jofra Archer and Sam Curran perform on their maiden test tour of India. Got to see how James Anderson & Stuart Broad perform as well who are the most experienced bowlers. +20

    After Sri Lanka there's 14 confirmed tests in about the same amount of months - I think for cricket to expand, this is what the game needs. Regular tests, once a month or so, to 1. really show who the best is, 2. to potentially get rotation involved & 3. to have things to always look forward to for cricket fans. It may be tough but footballers are playing sometimes 2 or 3 games a week in some cases. It's a tough adjustment but I think overall it'll be good for the game.

  91. Fed_Express

    I wish I could just have these two as the permanent commentators everywhere. Especially Hussain's point about India playing spin effectively isn't true anymore was so so poignant. Same with Atherton's point about the key difference between how English quicks approach the game vs Aussie quicks. Just some outstanding analysis. There's absolutely nothing like Test cricket. It's a unique sport and if these tests go to a 5th day it would be an absolute feast. England anyways is my favorite team currently. I'd love for England to come to India and give us a solid solid competition.

  92. Aditya Kulkarni

    This presents a really good case for rotation. I am surprised that the boards haven't already jumped on to it. Australia rotated their bowlers in England in the last ashes, now it is time for them to do the same for all of 2021. For India though, it has been happening naturally. Kohli and Ishant were out for a while, Pujara doesn't play white ball and Shami has been out for a while as well. So these guys can come back and relieve some of the others, like Rahane; that way you make sure that no single player has been subject to prolonged life in the bubble. So much talk about skill and adaptability, but I feel that this time, the winner is going to be the team that manages player workload the best. Lets wait and see!

    many touring sides when come to india think that they need more spin bowlers and only they are going to get you the wickets and that leads to their downfall test cricket is all about backing your strengths and touring sides with good pace attack back the spinners more which results in india scoring more than 500 runs most of the time and also dont just think that india will produce spin pitches only, with the fast bowling revolution in india in this kohli era there will always be a uncertainty around the behavior of the pitch the same pitch that generally is made to spin can also be made for fast bowling so touring teams will always be guessing +2

India should go with flat tracks similar to the ones they had back in 2016. India view English, SA always as a threat because they are one of the few teams, have the potential to win games in India unlike Australia or New Zealand as the former are traditionally better players of spin bowling. have the potential to outclass Indian batsmen in playing spin. +2

    @Joel Nicholls The problem is test cricket is dying in countries like WI & SL with no strong national teams. Their respective boards don't have much resources to subsidize test cricket and in some cases it's actually costing them money to host additional test match(es).The only way Test Cricket would be in good health there is by having strong national teams who will then elicit interest of broadcasters in stronger test nations like Ind,Aus & Eng to generate revenues. +1

    Problem is that I'm recent years it almost feels England are too timid when they should be aggressive, but then when they are 2 down for not many they have guys coming out trying to smash the ball and holing out. The best players on the world seen to have a great instinct of when to absorb pressure. Labuschange was in iffy form the one match early in his innings and he realised he wasn't seeing it well so he ground it out instead and still got runs that's the big difference. When you are struggling keep it simple play straight and get your eye in a bit to at least give yourself a fighting chance.

    Despite India just winning in Australia I still don’t see how England can win the ashes in Australia, especially if they choose Anderson, Broad and Woakes in their bowling up without a top class spinner.

    @kalpesh bhavsar it was a generic statement. It does not matter if the video was shot before or after the test. I was talking from the context that some Indian batsmen for sure might have some problem and in some series they might have had a problem. Like the Wankade match with dhoni that he was pointing. Actually, Pujara is the only batsman still playing. And he was the only outstanding player in that match. I am talking about only batsmen. Rest Ghambir, Sehwag, Tendulkar, Yuvraj, Dhoni are not present in the current squad. The other person is Kholi. You can decide if he is good or bad player of spin. That time Monty and Greame Swann had taken most of the wickets. So that is what he is referring to. But if you see most of the Indian batsmen were old and around their retirement time. Not giving excuses but that is the fact. What do you think? Is current Indian team better players of fast bowlers than they are of spinners or are not good at both? I am talking off the majority of them. And also what I meant about Nasser complaing about India and Indian pitches, it's not the first time. Whenever England toured India, he would say the pitch is a spin track. It's unsporting and so on. What do one expect touring to India? DO they produce spin track whenever India tours England. Of course, some tracks might turn more than others. Some even from the first day. So what? Does it start swinging on the last day in Emgland. And regrading India being bad players of spinners than England, then yes, majority of ppl when they think of playing against India, they think that they are bad players of spin. Right! It's like saying Indian fast bowlers took the majority of the Australian wicket so Australia being good players of fast bowlers is a myth. On any given day if you ask anyone if the current team would have problems with a spinner or a fast bowler, you would get an answer. Again there might some players. I would say very few or certain instances where that might be true. Or lets say a very good turning pitch. Maybe it would trouble some Indian batsman. But still, that pitch would favor India, not England. The Gabba pitch on the last day was turning. You can say Lion did not use it to the fullest, but still, I did not see any Indian struggling. Again one two balls here and there on a day 5 pitch with that many cracks. In whichever way you take it, I don't hold it correct. Also, you have to understand why they are saying all this now. Test championship is on the way. Else Vaughan's comment of 4-0 was not out of the blue. I am sure he got a good taste of his prediction. Anyways, there are always such mind games played before a test series. Some English players started to comment, 2018 victory of India was because the main players of Australia were not present and so on. Rest you know. If I typed the entire story here, it would be a very long comment than what it has already been. So I would stop now. And you are right. The current Indian squad cannot play spinners well. Buh bye. And take care.

    @kalpesh bhavsar Ofcourse i know that. I am a 80's kid. I have grown watching all of them. It's no breaking news what you are talking about. I said that for a reason. I have watched him play and commentate as well. There are certain things that as a cricket fan you understand when you watch and hear someone. I said it with some pre context. It's not that i am watching cricket from yesterday and passing a comment. Like there is a difference between Ricky pointing and gilly, there is difference between boycott and Nasser. Again if you watched Sidhu and Boycott's commentary, you might get an hint. If there is a bias or not. So don't think everyone who comments does not articulate his words or don't know what he is speaking about. Opinions can differ No issue. But don't start to educate things, when you don't even know the other person's knowledge on that subject.

    @vinay k I think this video was shooted before Brisbane test. Warner had difficulties on last 2 Ashes series against Broad and now Archer. may be that's why he is saying so. And he is correct to some extent Indian batsman have poor records against spinners as compared to former generation. Sweep, paddle sweep is one of most effective shot against spin but No current player can play sweep and paddle sweep with confidence .

    Well considering Australia lost their 1st test at the Gabba since 1988, and India won the series 2-1, India are the best team in the world. Australia might even have a new test captain when the ashes rolls around. Don’t be surprised if wade and Paine are not in the test team, Alex Carey and kurtis Patterson should be heavily considered and will pucovski will the opener for Australia in the future when fit. Warner? Who knows, when fit, he’ll be determined to get one back on broad and archer, the bowlers, if all fit, they’ll put the fear of god into England, and that’s not including James Pattinson. And Cameron green will be a special player for Australia.
