I'd say take young bowlers and even if they fail initially, persist with the promising ones. It's rare to have a bowler bowling at top form from his first test. Exceptions were bowlers like Kumble, Waqar, and Akram.
Correct. And we do will get some good options. Umesh yadav looked good till now. Only problem with the pacers are the injuries. We are not good there.
This anyway happens whenever a very successful persons retire. It looks initially that it will never be same again. But eventually we move and get the replacement. Remember when Gavaskar and Kapil retired we will never be able to recover and it we did.
I disagree. He was well reached to the end. He saw the ball coming at him and he just took an evasive action. If I remember I read or hear somewhere that if is batsman reaches to the crease and is taking an evasive action then he can be declared not out.
I know in today's case he didn't put the bat down so was tecnically out but against the sportsmenship.
I agree, that is what I mentioned, technically he was out but we could have shown some sportsmenship there.
Anyway even though he would have stayed it is not going to change anything in the match outcome.
