Shastri to continue to be head coach till 2021 WC to be held in India.

I think its a good decision, he has been decent as coach, ya sometime speaks more then required, but overall he has been decent. Plus it's always good that captain and coach share  good healthy working relation. On top of that the one shortlisted were not that great either.

Mike Heason is a good coach dude.

Considering we are playing 2 T20 wcs in next 2 years, would have preferred Hesson actually.

Lots of inside stuff in today's episode. 

 

-  Kohli got Sehwag to apply for the post of head coach before CT 2017 and then used him to remove Kumble and get Shastri at the last moment. Virat literally pissed off viru, kumble, dravid, zaheer, and the cac (sachin, Saurav and vvs)

 

- stuff like if you don't follow orders (like a certain diet or something else) you're dropped from the playing 11

 

- after the test series win in Australia someone in the dressing room (vk or bewda) said don't show respect to senior players and say we did the impossible. 

 

- lots of other stuff which they didn't say openly like someone in the team saying  "15 catch, 5 century i" which i think is directed towards rohit. Etc etc. 

 

Lets just hope virat doesn't destroy the team with his confrontational attitude.

The umpiring in Ashes has been disgraceful.

Aleem Dar just gave Head not out for a lbw appeal.

on review, the ball was hitting middle of middle stump. How the fk can anyone miss that :doh: 

There was one more howler after that, I think with DRS umpires have started to take things too lightly.

This Ashes test might end with a lame draw. Shame. I was enjoying the limited action till now.

Btw, Steve Smith is an enigma. The way he shuffles all the time he should be a prime candidate for lbw or bowled, especially when ball pitches on off and middle. But, every damn time he manages to put bat on it. Truly fascinating to watch. And as a Right handed batsman myself let me say, it's a freak thing to do and I dont think anyone else can manage this kind of technique with so much success. Truly enjoyable though.
