Farce selection

Test cricket is a different cup of tea altogether and the selectors have lost their vision in selecting weak side against English professionals. The top order is shaky with both Murali Vijay and Gautam Gambhir are weak against moving ball.  And the man to folow, Virat Kohli has a weakness against bouncing deliveries and a test call up for Hardik Pandya is too early as we require a batsman who can face second new ball very well.  Again Jayant Yadav and Karun Nair are good at domestic level and need some exposure to play against a clever fast bowling attack.  Our spinners are the main hope and if they fail in certain wickets, then the English team will take advantage and go on an offensive as they did in the last tour of India with left and right spin combination. Last time we won at Ahmedabad but went on to lose the series 1-2. Indian test team selection is totally farce and some outstanding cricketers are sitting outside and the less talented are included in the team.
