Hi, this guy bowled wonderfully in his debut odi, scalping 3 wickets. He could have been a perfect test spinner choice for this bangladesh tests, considering his confidence level which should have been high by now and the pitch conditions in bangladesh, which will assist his type of bowling. What do you think?

Indian Cricket team a great team who plays very well consistently. It is no more less than Australian team. The Only difference is the confidence level and the problems we have internally. The major change that should be done is the leadership. The leader should lead but not request. The Captain should have the command over the team players. At the same time the captain should maintain good friendly relation with the team members. The coaches should not effect the team members' selection process much

Yes i agree with u but u compare him with anil kumble and he is no where near him but considering if he had bowled alongside anil kumble he would have gained a lot of experience or atleast they could have allowed him to stay so whatever time he spent with the maestro he would definately have gained from it so over all yes it was a bad idea sending him back but i am sure there has to be some reasons and he will definately get a lot more chances India plays a lot of cricket so my friend do not worry he will be there and will play for india for a long long time as long as he performs consistantly

I think he is one of the upcoming spinners for India. With Anil Kumble's retirement is due anytime and Harbhajan Singh being sidelined by the selectors, it is an ideal situation for a new player to take centre stage. He did just that in the ODI match he played. I hope he will come back strongly for the next series. All the Best Piyush Chawla!

I think he should have been experimented with in the test series against bangladesh. He bowled very well in the second ODI against Bangladesh. He was very aggressive. He was hugely helped with the fact that there was a huge total to defend. Considering his performance he should have played in the tests. But he has plenty of time in his hands. He is still a budding youngster. He needs to be groomed properly. I am sure that he will be an asset to the team in the future.

Yes he did bowl well on his first outing for India in One day Internationals against Bangladesh, who play spinners comaratively well. But you can not judge a player on the basis of just one performance. In the past we saw so many players performing on their first outings, but later they failed badly. It is said that a spinner gets better with age. So Anil kumble is still around doing well. I admit Chawla should have been kept in the team so as to groom him but in kumble's presence he do not stand a chance of playing in test side unless pitch is so much helping to spinners. Happy Discussions

I dont think it is the right decision.Because he has got the talent.Another thing Anil kimble is becoming old and he has come to end of his career.So India should look for young talent.
