The Group structure.
Never quite knew this - used to just follow the tournament without bothering about Groups.

Wow!
Faiz Fazal and Wasim Jaffar, fantastic!
Both deserved to play much more for BCCI.
Faiz got just one chance, that too at the age of 33.
Scored 55 on ODI debut, at an SR of 90.
That was it!

Wasim Jaffar was far better than the likes of Abhinav Mukund.
But was dumped after a South Africa tour to India.
Everyone failed -he got the axe.
He was just 30!
He is still playing first-class cricket at the age of 40 - and going strong every season.
Highest run-scorer in the history of Ranji Trophy - only one to get 11000 Ranji runs.

Any idea why these two have not got more chances?

Wasim Jaffer is a Ranji cricketer - not a real FC (like Duleep) or international test cricketer ;-)

He's a grade cricket boss :P

Wasim Jaffer has
- highest all-time aggregate in Ranji Trophy
- highest all-time aggregate in Duleep Trophy (2545 runs @ 55.32)
- highest all-time aggregate in Irani Trophy too, I think. (This is an annual one-match event played between Ranji winners and Rest of India) - in the most recent edition (March 2018), Jaffer scored 286.

Unlike Mark Ramprakash, he did well in Tests too.
In England, South Africa, West Indies.

You know you test batting comparison is tenuous when you compare someone to Ramprakash, Hick, Rohit, Yuvraj, Bevan et al as "did well"...

He has only aggregated because he was not in the international team <insert a GS "duh!" here>.

No, I compared him with Ramps only cos Ramps is considered to be a domestic cricket run machine, but never quite made the step up to international cricket.

Jaffer wasn't like that. He was good at international level too.

Initially Gambhir took his place but later even guys like Abhinav Mukund and Murali Vijay went ahead in the pecking order, not to mention Dhawan.

In Nov 2007, he scored a fluent 212 off 274 balls against Pakistan.
5 months later, he had played his last Test.
He was just 30.
True, he had a poor tour of Australia in 2007-08 but even so, this was harsh.

Kambli had serious disciplinary problems.
His being dropped from the squad, despite his terrific start in Tests, is still understandable.
His situation is not comparable with Jaffer's.

Yeah, I agree. He was a drunkard, had huge alcohol problems. Compulsive drinker. I had a thread on this. He had a problem with the short ball, but that could have been overcome if mind was in the right place. He got into drunken brawls, accidents and what not. I think also dabbled with drugs.

Jaffer was disciplined, he cant be compared to Kambli.

So did Bevan...

It is very common from FC to intl... Suddenly in intl you're facing Wagner who will give you 4 short balls an over...

Ryder who was clearly drinking - no problem with the short ball at all... (add Botham, I Chappell and all WSC players of the 1970's...)

Bevan or Ryder couldnt be compared with Kambli.

Ryder looked more talented.

Kambli was a total gone case. His schoolmate Tendulkar was more disciplined, he knew all this success can vanish one day. Tendulkar was very grounded. Kambli's situation was comparable to a beggar who became a millionaire one sudden day and squandered everything.

That sums up the popular NZC opinion of Ryder as well... tbf. Grew up on friend's couches... became a cricket star and stuffed it all up... I typically go into bat for Ryder - I do not know all the ins and outs (but I have read and heard a lot), but my my heart is on his side...

Tbf - intl cricket fans get the whole Bradman thing - but we really do not get the whole Tendulkar or Dhoni thing... At all...

We just do not get why we're expected to rate them any higher than any regular ATG?

I personally think Gavaskar is the best cricketer out of India myself (Kohli will eclipse him soon I imagine)... Yet Sunil gets no worship it seems...

We talked later about them but you mentions age in beginning.Pakistan's Abid Ali now 31 officially on paper but inzamul haq has doubt of his age, he thinks abid may be 36.he is in great form for number 3. I wish they pick him for southafrica tour of Pakistan soon.

I can tell you when Indian team selects for aus,some new member of BCCI suggest GG and Yuvi but Kohli stands up and say no way.Fazal and Jaf now history.FAZAL had support from MANOHER (vidarbh)otherwise he never play for India,

Its our policy no matter how great you doing presently in domestic you not get second chance once you drops from national team unless you are BIRLAS son.he may makes it in BPXl

Achrekar coached Tendulkar, Kambli, Praveen Amre and Agarkar, all whom played for India.

----------------Excerpts from the interview with Achrekar 20 years ago

At one time, you had three of your wards in the Indian team -- Tendulkar, Amre, and Kambli. Now there is only Tendulkar, what happened to the others?

Actually, now there is Agarkar as well. Kambli is injured, I confidently expect to see him back in the side soon. As for Praveen (Amre), he has been out of form for some time now, it does happen to even the best players.

Of your protegees, who would you rate as the most naturally talented?

Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli, in equal measure. I think the difference between the two is that Vinod does not ahve sachin's knack of studying his own faults and working to erase them.
Vinod for instance has the tendency of getting fully across while batting, which means his leg stump is exposed, this has caused him so much trouble, I have pointed it out so often, but he still does it.

And what about Tendulkar, what are his defects?

Earlier, he used to play across the line, and wave his bat at bouncers outside leg stump to get caught at fine leg. Now, his only defect is a tendency to check his drive, sometimes, especially to a ball of full length, it results in his being caught and bowled. Of late, he has learnt to cut out the cross bat shots and the hooks, though he is still susceptible to the checked drive.

Doesn't he have a slightly suspect defense?

If he did, he wouldn't have scored all those runs at the highest level. His defence is strong, well organised, but he prefers to play his shots and I have always encouraged him to do that. He doesn't like to let any bowler get on top of him.
Another big problem with him is a tendency to overdo things -- he would have batted for hours in a game, and then after close of play, he will promptly be back in the nets, wanting to bat again, or bowl. Someone has to curb his enthusiasm, teach him not to burn himself out.

Speaking of which, Kambli's attitude is believed to be his own worst enemy...

In a sense that is true. He comes from a very poor family, and often does not know how to behave, both on and off the field. He doesn't mean any harm, it is just that his fondness for a flamboyant lifestyle, his swagger, gives him an I-don't-care appearance, which puts people's backs up. I've spoken to him about this, enough times, each time he tells me he will improve, but that determination lasts only for a couple of days, then he reverts to his own former behaviour. It is not that he means any harm, it is just the way he is, unfortunately, this tendency has earned him many enemies.

A word about your latest prodigy, Agarkar?

I am thoroughly impressed with the way Ajit has performed in international cricket. He is an attacking bowler who concentrates on picking up wickets. He may not be as well built as Donald or Ambrose, but he is nippy and can surprise many batsmen with extra pace. He needs to work on his fitness though, and build muscles. Also, he must be handled with caution and not be overused, which which may result in a burnout or injury. He is a brilliant prospect for Indian cricket.

A test average of 53.78 compared to a guy averaging 99.94...

Have you ever wondered why Adam Voges was not a big deal in Australia... let alone Steve Smith was never called their best test cricketer....

Sachin fans seem to have a problem presented to them by the batting gifts of Virat Kohli...

He right now looks on target to smash Tendulkar's performances. Just completely eclipse then... Not just test cricket too (he is scoring ODI centuries twice as a fast as Sachin did...)

Awkward...

I still rate Gavaskar as fantastic in tests because he simply was, but Kohli is possibly taking the Indian mantle of finest ever for himself right now...

But all test batsmen live in Bradman's shadow, rightly or wrongly... He was simply and statistically unreal...

And it really is time to start talking about Kohli... The guy just made runs in SA and England in horrid batting conditions... Absolutely horrid conditions... where the ball dominated... Is his career going to be downgraded because of what the majority population of Indian fans grew up on?

Hmmmm - this is when the neutral starts questioning the zeal of fans. I unabashedly support India vs Australia, but these Tendulkar > Bradman arguments are just a tad too much for my tastes...

Kohli is running down Tendulkar in ODI in second gear... And the rest of the world knows it... He appears also to be running down Tendulkar in tests with his huge scoring in horrible batting conditions... Kohli may even rival Viv or ABdV and eclipse them also...

Record is record

Mohd Yusuf of Pakistan hits 1788 test runs in calender year
( During his career span likes of Ponting,Haydens, G Smith and Others around but record is record I don't think present day cricketer hits that many in calender year in ONLY TEST)

2006 Yusuf ( later known as Youhana) hits 9 scores of century.

Mumbai were in deep trouble against Gujarat, having a slender 16 run lead in the first innings, and being reduced to 121/7 in their second.
Guess who is rescuing them?

Shivam Dubey.

He's 40*.
They're a healthier 157/7 now, overall lead 173.
