This is where you reflect that used its RTM card for Ojha. Not Maxwell, not Smith, not Johnson, not D Karthik but Pragyan Ojha.
Ladies and Gentleman, here is the spinner version of Lord Ishant Sharma - Pragyan Ojha.
George Bailey wins the toss and decides to bat first. Punjab are playing an unchanged squad from their last game. Mumbai replace Pragyan Ojha with Jasprit Bumrah in the side. Pitch: There is a little grass cover on the wicket but it is on the drier side. It is a good pitch to bat on as well. Having won all their 8 games, Mumbai were unbeaten at their home ground last year in the Indian T20 League.
105 - The most runs scored by a batsman off a bowler in the tournament - Virat Kohli holds the record against Umesh Yadav, scoring 105 off 53 balls, and being dismissed once. Adam Gilchrist is the only other batsman to hit three-figures or more against a bowler - he has taken exactly 100 off Ashish Nehra, also off 53 balls. 40 - The number of dot balls Pragyan Ojha has bowled to MS Dhoni, the most by any bowler against a batsman in the competition. Ojha has dismissed Dhoni six times - also a record in the tournament - in 96 balls, conceding 98 runs. The next in the dot-ball list is Praveen Kumar against Sachin Tendulkar (34 dots). 3 - The least runs defended successfully in the 20th over by any team in the competition's history, by Rajasthan against Mumbai in 2009. Mumbai needed four to win in the last over - which was bowled by Munaf Patel - with three wickets in hand, but managed only one run and lost all three remaining wickets. 21 - The most runs that teams have failed to defend in the last over. It h ...
Sachin Tendulkar, who has announced his retirement at the end of the ongoing Test match in Mumbai against the West Indies, still figures on the Board of Control for Cricket in India's list of contracted players for 2013-2014. Tendulkar, who is playing his 200th Test, figures in the elite Grade A alongside Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina and Ravichandran Ashwin. A Grade A contract ensures a player gets a retainer fee of Rs 1 crore each for the season. Interestingly, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh have not been given contracts. Grade B, worth 50 lakhs each, has Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Ishant Sharma, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Umesh Yadav, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rohit Sharma. The Grade C list -- 25 lakh each - has Dinesh Karthik, Amit Mishra, Wriddhiman Saha, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Vinay Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Jaydev Unadkat and Mohit Sharma. Any player who turns out for India in a Test/ODI ...

Meet our new squad members: Mike Hussey, Zaheer Khan & Pragyan Ojha!
Indian Cricket Team for Asia Cup and World T20 is announced. It is a mixed feeling for me. First I am happy to see Ishant Sharma is not there in both ODI and T20 squad. Feeling sad not to see one of my favorite player Suresh Raina in the ODI team, although I don't have any complain. What Suresh Raina lacking now is self confidence. Now he can go back to domestic cricket, perform well in domestic ODI competition and bounce back into the ODI team. Also it is good to see Pujara being given chance to prove himself as an ODI player, he may be a better bet in next world cup with his superb technique. But the selection which baffles me is the selection of R Ashwin in the ODI team as his recent performances with the ball is very poor. Instead I would like to see Pragyan Ojha in the team as he is an attacking spinner. Somebody may argue that Ashwin is better in batting than Ojha, it may be correct. If that is the case then it is better to give either Parvez Rasool or Jalaj Saxena the chance as both of them are bet ...

IPL 7 auction: Top base price for Sehwag, Yuvraj, Aussie Ashes heroes Cricketnext Staff | 30-Jan-2014 11:18 AM After missing out on retention from their respective franchises, India veterans Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh - along with Australia's Ashes super star Mitchell Johnson - have attracted the top base price of Rs. 20 million for the IPL players' auction to be held in Bangalore on Feburay 12 and 13. In the list of 233 capped players - which includes 46 Indians - from ten countries finalised by the IPL, only 31 are in the top price bracket. The other prominent Indian names part of the 31 top-grossers are Dinesh Karthik, Pragyan Ojha, Yusuf Pathan, Amit Mishra, Prveeen Kumar and Murali Vijay.

The notable expatriates absent from the full list are Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara and Dinesh Chandimal, Australia skipper Michael Clarke and team-mate Mitchell Marsh, England fast bowlers Stuart Broad and Ben Stokes and wicketke ...
Impressed with their ability to save their place in the Indian team even after consistent non-performance, a group of disgruntled IT employees from the city have decided to approach some members of the Indian cricket team, currently in New Zealand, to get some professional tips. Sources tell that players like Ishant Sharma, Rohit Sharma, Ashwin, and Raina are the most sought after by these employees frustrated with their professional careers. “I work my *** off, achieve all my targets, complete all the projects before assigned deadlines, yet I have still not been chosen for a single on-site tour so far. And look, these guys are touring New Zealand!” said 29-year-old software engineer Miteshwar Pujara. “I too yearn for a boss who blames the RAM of the office PC instead of my coding skills if there are any errors,” he added, “Maybe these guys know a trick or two in which even normal bosses are influenced to think that way.” There were rumors that cricketers like Pragyan Ojha too had decided to j ...
Cheteshwar Pujara moves to career-best fifth in ICC Test rankings, Virat Kohli remains static at No. 11! In the all-rounder's ranking, Ashwin continued to rule the roost at the top. South Africa's AB de Villiers leads the Test batsmen table with 912 points followed by Shivnarine Chanderpaul(876) of West Indies and Ross Taylor (871) from New Zealand. Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha fell one spot to ninth position in the bowlers' table, led by South Africa's Vernon Philander. Ojha lost his place to Australian speedster Mitchell Johnson, who had a sensational Ashes series gained three points to jump to 8th in the bowling list. Johnson's teammate Ryan Harris, jumped to a career-best third. Philander was followed by his teammate Dale Steyn.

DURBAN: Kallis remained on course for a farewell hundred, and with the help of AB de Villiers, who conjured a 50-plus score for the 10th Test in a row, took South Africa to a solid position before rain and bad light stopped play an hour after tea. India took three early wickets, before Kallis and de Villiers got together and stopped the rot with a 127-run stand. De Villiers was the more fluent of the two as Kallis, took his time to settle down. He played a sluggish innings getting to 78 off 224 balls before play came to a halt. The one bright spot in the Indian attack was Ravindra Jadeja who, in his first Test as the lead spinner, put an end to discussions over whether he should have been picked ahead of R Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha. He finished the day 4-87 off 37 tight overs. Progress had been more brisk in the morning from South Africa, before Jadeja's bounce provided the first wicket of the morning. Graeme Smith looked to smash the ball over the leg side, but it hit high on the bat and swirled to midwick ...
India retain 2nd spot in ICC Test rankings Sun, 1 Dec 4:30 pm The Indian cricket team continued to be second in the ICC Test rankings with R Ashwin topping the all-rounders' chart in the latest list issued today. India are placed behind South Africa with 119 points, which is just 12 less than the Proteas' tally. The teams are set to clash in a two-Test and thee ODI series starting December 5 in South Africa. Cheteshwar Pujara is the best-placed Indian batsman at sixth with Virat Kohli following him at a distant 20th spot. In the bowlers' list, R Ashwin is fifth, followed by Pragyan Ojha at ninth. Meanwhile, New Zealand and the West Indies will begin their contest in a three-Test series from December 3 in Dunedin with an aim to improve their ratings points in the team standings, the ICC said in a statement. West Indies enter the series in sixth position on 95 ratings points, while New Zealand start off in eighth place with 75 ratings points. If New Zealand was to win the series by a margin of 2-0, they can ...

Debut and man of the match: INDIA Test = Praveen Amre, R Ashwin and RP Singh. ODI = Sandeep Patil. T20 = Subramaniam Badrinath, Dinesh Karthik and Pragyan Ojha.
Ravichandran Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha's spin bowling combination bodes well for India -
Via: BHAK SALA Please don’t say I won’t watch cricket anymore Had Ishant played the SRT 200, he would have been the third most experienced player in the team, without him it was Pragyan Ojha with 24 tests. The seniors in the team have played 18 to 24 tests. The young guns have played two to six. This is likely to be the squad that goes to South Africa. I was 11 years when India went to South Africa in 96-97. It had been only about six months since I had cried and cursed the Eden Garden crowd for not letting the match finish which I was sure India would have won with Kambli and Kumble scoring remaining 120 odd runs (with assistance from V. Raju - one might say over optimistic but didn’t Laxman score 120 with Ishant and Ojha later.) Coming back to the South Africa tour our of ’96. Ganguly after a wait of long wait since his ODI debut had had a blazing start to Test career with centuries in first two innings, Dravid had made into team got out a couple of times near hundreds yet to score one. Laxman w ...

End of an excellent day for India. First they got a massive first innings lead and then restricted West Indies to 43/3. They are still 270 runs behind. Ravichandran Ashwin picked up 2 wickets while Pragyan Ojha took 1.
Do U think Pragyan Ojha is the best left arm spinner in the world sir ? Or Ravindra Jadeja ?
MS Dhoni should declare now. And in WI 2nd Innings Ravichandran Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shammi should not bowl.

WI chase leather after folding for 182 Two wickets for Shane Shillingford failed to ease the pressure on West Indies, after they were bowled out before tea and India got within sight of a first innings lead in the momentous second Test on Thursday here. Shillingford continued to be the Windies’ most effective bowler on this trip, grabbing 2-46 from 12 overs, as India reached 157 for two, replying to West Indies’ first innings total of 182, at the close on the opening day at the Wankhede Stadium with retiring batting great Sachin Tendulkar, playing 200th and final Test, not out on 38 and rookie Cheteshwar Pujara not out on 34. This followed another batting collapse – this time triggered by left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha – that saw the visitors lose their last seven wickets for 42 runs in the space of 89 deliveries between lunch and tea. Kieran Powell hit the top score of 48 and all of the West Indies’ top seven batsmen reached double figures, but none of them carried on, as the visitors, sent in t ...

Ind vs WI: Sachin Tendulkar walks in amid guard of honour - Times of India NEW DELHI: West Indies's spinner Shane Shillingford gave India double jolt by dismissing Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay in one over on the first day of Sachin Tendulkar's farewell Test at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Scorecard | Sachin Tendulkar Timeline Dhawan and Vijay started off well for India and went on to add 77-run for the first wicket to put India on course for the big first innings lead. Earlier, Pragyan Ojha took five wickets as India bundled out the West Indies for 182 runs. Indian captain MS Dhoni took his 250th catch to dismiss Tino Best off Ojha. Ojha took his third wicket when he trapped Shane Shillingford plumb in front of the wicket. R Ashwin dismissed Narsingh Deonarine and Darren Sammy in one over to pin down the West Indies. Playing an irresponsible shot, Sammy looked to pull a delivery over mid-wicket but the ball went high up in the air for Rohit Sharma to take the catch. Murali Vijay took a good catch at ...
CARIBBEAN COLLAPSE Chris Gayle became strongly, scoring all the 33 runs made for the opening wicket. But he got set up by Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. The seamer let loose one bouncer that went to Dhoni on the second bounce. The second bouncer was quicker and Gayle tried to fetch it from outside the off-stump, only to sky it to midwicket. Bhuvaneshwar erred by dropping Darren Bravo at deep square leg, the third catch missed off Pragyan Ojha in the game. Bravo and Kieron Powell took the score to 101-1, after which the collapse started. Marlon Samuels probably wasn’t out. Shami struck him with an in-swinging in-front of leg-stump and the ball would have probably missed the stumps. Nigel Llong didn’t think so. Tendulkar then nearly had a wicket, hitting Powell in front of leg and middle. But Llong misread that as well, giving it as runs to the batsman. Then started the Shami show. He took nine wickets in the game, six of them bowled. In this game, he had perfected the in-swinging ball that cuts back sharply into ...
This Mohammed Shami looks good. An Indian attack with Shami, Umesh Yadav, Pragyan Ojha and Ravi Ashwin would be a formidable one.
West Indies captain Darren Sammy won the toss and elected to bat first in the opening cricket Test against India starting in Kolkata on Wednesday, which is also the 199th and penultimate Test of Sachin Tendulkar's illustrious career. India has fielded two debutants in the playing eleven in the form of Rohit Sharma and fast bowler Mohammed Shami. For West Indies, pacer Sheldon Cottrell will make his debut in place of Kemar Roach, who is yet to recover from a shoulder problem. Teams: India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Pragyan Ojha. West Indies: Darren Sammy (capt), Chris Gayle, Kieran Powell, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Dinesh Ramdin, Shane Shillingford, Veerasammy Permaul, Sheldon Cottrell, Tino Best.
FINAL DUEL BETWEEN TWO POLES - NORTH AND SOUTH Sehwag, Gambhir add heft to Duleep title clash for North zone under the leadership of Harbhajan, who won the all-important toss to take his team into the final. The presence of Test players like Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir has added value to the Duleep Trophy final. Pragyan Ojha and South Zone captain Abhinav Mukund as Test players in the final of the zonal competition too. Gambhir's last Duleep Trophy match came in 2006-07. Sehwag last played in the inter-zonal first-class competition in 2004-05, opening the innings with Gambhir. This time, though, Sehwag is likely to bat in the middle order, a decision he made earlier in the season as he tries to make his way back into the Indian team. The players and subplots are all there, but the Kochi weather remains the big factor after persistent rain and wet outfield allowed only 208 overs in the semi-final. Scattered thunderstorms are predicted between October 17 and 21, with chances of precipitation hovering ...
Not sure why Ashwin plays everyday , he is being thrashed everyday for last six months. Why Bhajji can't get a recall? Amit Mishra , Pragyan Ojha deserve to get chances.
In Mr. Dhoni's case, the conflict of interest arises due to his share holding in Rhiti Sports Management Pvt. Ltd. However, the same company also represents other players that play for India including Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and Pragyan Ojha. Given that as captain of the Indian team, Dhoni also has a say in which players are picked for the team, it would indicate a conflict of interest since he is part owner of the firm that represents them. Naturally there is no evidence to prove that this has ever played a role in team selection, but VVS Laxman makes a fairly simple point: "When such a problem arises, the stakeholder should come out by selling off his shares. I think that can solve all the problems at one go. I am not sure if Dhoni has any share in Rhiti Sports, but if it is true, he should sell off shares as it can put him in a compromising situation". At a time when Indian cricket is reeling from loss of integrity, it is important that our top players do everything possible to ensure that not ev ...
Rhiti Sports Management and its main promoter, Arun Pandey, might deny that Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni holds any share in the company, but what they cannot deny is that Pandey and Dhoni have been and continue to be business partners, spelling a high probability of conflict of interest for the Indian captain. TOI accessed documents filed by at least two other firms with the ministry of corporate affairs which show that Dhoni and his family held shares in firms where the only other partners were Pandey and Rhiti Sports. Given this, Dhoni's financial interests coincide with those of Pandey and hence there is a conflict of interest between Rhiti Sports managing Team India players ( Ravindra Jadeja, Suresh Raina and Pragyan Ojha) and Dhoni having a role in their selection irrespective of whether or not Dhoni has any direct share in Rhiti Sports. A detailed questionnaire sent to Arun Pandey early on Tuesday went unanswered. One of these firms, Rhiti MSD Alamode Pvt Ltd, was floated under a reso ...
Dhoni faces charge for holding shares in Rhiti Sports, a firm that manages three players Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and Pragyan Ojha, besides the skipper himself.
Dhoni owns 15% stake in 'Rhiti Sports' firm that manages him, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Pragyan Ojha and RP Singh..(and also manages Chennai Super kings team) Now we know why Jadeja & Raina are always in the team whether they perform or not. and not to forget that last ball 'No-ball' by RP Singh against Chennai.
Both Rohit Sharma and Pragyan Ojha were also a part of the IPL winning XI in 2009 with Deccan Chargers

even if they let Pragyan Ojha play the next match that would be breaking the stereotype.
Following Ravi Jadeja's show in Hyderabad Test, am convinced that he play in Tests, but not so with Ishant, who can give way to Pragyan Ojha
MSDS SUCCESS FORMULA MS Dhoni has surpassed Sourav Ganguly as Indias most successful skipper with 22 Test wins.TOI takes a look at what makes the Indian captain tick CALM AND COMPOSED Both VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid have mentioned during their commentary stints that the one quality that serves MS Dhoni well is his equanimity.Even after the World Cup win,he didnt get too delirious.One also didnt find him flustered or depressed after humiliating defeats in England and Australia.His phlegmatic nature has helped him keep things in perspective in a country where emotions can be extreme. HANDS-ON,BUT NOT TOO OVER-BEARING Its no secret that Dhoni enjoys leading a young group and prefers to empower them with confidence and promise of a long run.As skipper,he also likes to give the players a free hand.Players like Virat Kohli,Suresh Raina,Praveen Kumar,Bhuvneshwar Kumar,Ravindra Jadeja,R Ashwin and Cheteshwar Pujara have all revelled under him.

Jadeja sends Australia crashing down : The name of Ravindra Jadeja does not ring too many positive resonances across the households of India. Quite unfairly, he is always known as the villain of the piece, one who has caused innumerable sufferings to the nation. His inclusion into the Test side ahead of Pragyan Ojha was followed by loud lamenting amongst the purists of Test cricket. How could a bits and pieces player sneak into the XI ahead of someone who was the only saving grace amongst the bowlers against England was the common question. Today’s performance has cleared quite a few doubts hovering over the youngster’s career. Jadeja’s strength is his accuracy. A brief look at any pitch map of Jadeja shows that he makes the batsmen play almost every time. On a crumbling 4th day’s track, his accuracy combined with little spin from the surface can make it a deadly connotation. Michael Clarke was to testify that, having looked extremely solid right from the first ball he faced, the Aussie skipper wa ...
Can we lend Pragyan Ojha to aussies , just to make this series interesting !
Pragyan Ojha is currently a better bowler than Harbhajan. Bhajji was covered by the success of Jadeja & Ashwin in last two tests.
Ravichandran Ashwin is the top ranked Indian bowler in the ICC test rankings at No.8 Pragyan Ojha is next at No.9 Zaheer Khan is at No.16
CA to ask BCCI if Pragyan Ojha can play for Australia in the third test match.
Yes MS DHONI is the most successful captain india has ever produced. 22 test wins & most of them are convincing wins. Take a bow MSD \o/ - Ravinder Jadeja proved his value. Not a big turner of the cricket ball but yes he is a great strike bowler. Jadeja keep calm and perform well :)
This was 1st instance in Test cricket history that team declared in first inning faced inning defeat. Previously, on 10 occasion team lost after declaring in first inning on first day. Jadega is improving day by day as a bowler, he need to improve his batting. Vijay & Pujara partnership was the game changer. Bhubneshwer is showing a class to be in team. Pragyan Ojha should be given an opportunity to play in next match in place of Harbhajan or Ishant. Mission revenge should continue.
Pragyan Ojha last seen on a flight to Sydney. Told that he's going there in search of greener pastures & an Aussie passport

INdia 2-0 up in 4 Test match series against australia. India has more important job at hand, in 8 days time india will play 3rd test match against australia, can India make clean sweep of australia and can INdia further improve winning margin in 3rd test match against australia.go india go for whitewash of australia.very sambolic and pathetic performance by clark and australia. will india bring back pragyan ojha in 3rd test match in place of Harbhajan Singh.it will be important to see Team India management's decision. waiting for that sweet revange when india wins 4-0 test series against australia.india took australia bluff of declaring on day one of this test match, dorothy and maxwell in place of nathan lyon, do you see some smoke of match fixing by aus.michael clark captain of aus team under microscope for his out of the blue decisions to rest lyon and bring dorothy/maxwell.icc should probe.thank you australia very much for india has now crushed aus and taken 2-0 lead in 4 test match series
With the success of R.Jadeja in the 2 Tests, Pragyan Ojha must be feeling left out. Technically, he is a better bowler than Jadeja.
Pragyan Ojha must be taken ahead of Harbhajan Singh in next test.
Fantastic win for India! Beat Australia by an innings and 135 runs, India take an unassailable 2-0 lead. Let's make some noise for Team India!
a docile Harbhajan or a consistent and an ever dependable Pragyan ojha ?! Your take for the rest of the series ?!
Congratulation to Team India for winning this test..!! :-) But foolish CSK morons are saying that Dhobi has become the best Indian captain after winning 22 tests breaking Dada's record of winning 21 tests! It sounds like the joke of the century! Lols :-P We can never forget the results 4-0, 4-0, 2-1, 3-2, 1-1 etc. God bless you suckers. Don't dare to compare God (DADA) with Dog (DHONI).
Let's give back-in-form Gambhir, Wasim Jaffer, Pragyan Ojha & Sai Badrinath to Aussies on loan for 3rd Test.
Bhajji's presence in the team is making Jadeja look devastating , too many left handers theory or too many spinners , dunno how u adjust but Mr Dhoni , Pragyan Ojha has to be in this team !!!
Did we just see Sehwag and Harbhajan play their farewell test match? ;) Hope to see Shikhar Dhawan and Pragyan Ojha in the side.
India wins the second match, but do they need to carry the burden of Ishant Sharma and Harbhajan Singh, when Sreesanth, Shami Ahmed, Pragyan Ojha and Parvez Rasool are in fine form. Country before friendship or lobby power , so these players should be kept out as soon as possible
Pragyan Ojha must be pleading to Dhoni to play him in the next 2 tests
“Why Ojha loves all colours, but respects only blue.” Pragyan Ojha isn’t just a top cricketer, he’s a big fan of...
yes- I agree- Jadeja as a batsman is waste n anyday, pragyan ojha is a better bowler..
happens to Pragyan Ojha,now he is d only IND bowler under 10 top Test bowler 8thRank 732P,who sud scrifice nw
but i still think Pragyan Ojha shud have been playin instead of him.
After Sir Ravindra Jadeja's performance, poor Pragyan Ojha may not get to play in the entire series
Pragyan Ojha can forget Test cricket for a while. Jadeja bowls a beauty to get the wicket of M Clarke. Aus 108-4
Don't you think that Pragyan Ojha had performed well enough against England that he should get a chance for the recent series ?
Is it the end of the road for Shewag & Harbachan Singh ? Why can't they get Jaffer to open in next 2 tests? What worse can we get then what is happening at present, lossing opener in first few runs ?
It is quite a shame that talented and hungry youngsters like Ajinkya Rahane, Manoj Tiwary, Unmukt Chand, Harmeet Singh, Shami Ahmed and Pragyan Ojha continue to wait in the wings while the likes of Virender Sehwag, Ishant Sharma and Harbhajan Singh continue to be given opportunities despite repeated failures. One must admit that it would be a good thing if one of these three worthies were to get injured. At least then they would make way for someone more worthy.
Harbhajan Singh is clearly over the hills. Bowling long hops is not furthering his cause either. Pragyan Ojha is sitting out for no reason !
2nd Test: Oz 74/2 at stumps on Day 3, trail by 192 Should get those 8 wickets fast tomorrow, or lets home Clarke will declare and lose :D
Will add Pragyan Ojha to that list but only marginally ;)
You can't compare a spinner and a pacer no. We've a thousand times better spinner than Bhajji on the bench, Pragyan Ojha.
Pragyan ojha must replace Jaddu in next match. **K*A*S*H**

Won't you think Pragyan ojha will be better option than Harbhajan Singh.?
Pragyan Ojha.Almost 6 wickets per test.still not in playing XI.bahut na insaffi hai.LETS root for PO
Pragyan Ojha is beginning to look like that unclaimed suspicious looking bag at the airport.
does australia think that this match will end in 3 days or are they fooling india.wicket is excellent and india will give themselves chance to score big 1st inning lead and then wrap aus LBW- i mean 'Leg before wisdom' of australian daring india with a declaration.harbhajan came good and competition of spinner slot is bringing best of theree indian spinners and pragyan ojha can do net practice for dozen of days more to see his chances...mouthwatering spinning trio for india.
I feel for pragyan ojha. He was brilliant against England. What more to get the team?
Overheard in the newsroom: Pragyan Ojha's Test career is over
Pragyan ojha should hv been played in place of Bhajji, he looks so stale and tired.
Quick Question: Do you think Pragyan Ojha should have played the Hyderabad Test? Yes or No.
but Pragyan Ojha and Shikhar should have definitely replaced Jadeja n M Vijay resp..but guess CSK compulsions ruling here :-)
India vs Aus. 2nd test. Just bcoz u hit a double century and won the test (with more contribution from ashwin) as a captain, doesn't mean that u can take any decision. The decision of dhoni to continue with the same team for 2nd test is a very, very bad decision. Not giving pragyan ojha, the in-form spinner, the credit and the place in the playing eleven which he deserves, may well prove detrimental to the team's prospects. Moreover, hyderabad is ojha's home ground.. Thumbs down, dhoni...
What are your views on selection of Harbhajan Singh ahead of Pragyan Ojha who bowled really well against NewZeeland here.
Pragyan Ojha who took most wickets in India's last test series is out of the team. A player can b rewarded this way only in Indian cricket.
*** is Harbhajan Singh doing in playing 11 ? Why is Pragyan Ojha warming benches ? fascintation to play wid non-perfomers
Lunch Australia 83 for 4 (Clarke 20*, Wade 2*) v India Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details Bhuvneshwar Kumar made his debut on a dustbowl in Chennai, the worst sort of surface for a quick bowler. He didn't even get to bowl in the second innings, and the speculation was that he could make way for Pragyan Ojha in this Test. Not only did he play, his skiddy bowling accounted for three top-order batsmen in the first session in Hyderabad. Those strikes were his first wickets in Test cricket, and the first for an Indian seamer in this series, putting the home side on top though they lost the toss.
: how much Pragyan Ojha could be effective with R ashwin and Harbhajan Singh rather than Ishant Sharma?
Wouldn't it have been a good option to have a leg spinner as pragyan ojha play this series with R.Ashwin. Ashwin
Well omitting PRAGYAN OJHA from the match today a bit unfair to him?
Harbhajan is in to bowl. Time for him to justify his selection over Pragyan Ojha.
If you were the Captain,would U replace Ishant Sharma,with Pragyan Ojha,for this match?
Considering the fact that he was born in Orissa, Pragyan Ojha is the bona fide Bhubaneswar Kumar in my book.
Pragyan Ojha misses out on his home ground. India have given Harbhajan one more chance.

I have two Non performing Assets in my Team. Mitchell Starc & Pragyan Ojha.
Dhoni didnt include pragyan Ojha? Though Bhajji paji didnt do well in Chennai
Dhoni could have picked up pragyan ojha instead bhajji or ishant ??
Do you think Pragyan Ojha would have been a better option than Ishant Sharma considering Hyderabad is his home ground?
I believe India will regret not playing Pragyan Ojha on this pitch at Uppal...This pitch is much better for batting than the one at Chennai.
Do you think it was a wise decision not to take Pragyan Ojha for this match?
After the Chennai Test, MS Dhoni provided ample hints that he will not tamper with the winning team combination in the second Test. That means local boy Pragyan Ojha will miss out on playing in Hyderabad despite his recent exploits in Test cricket as one half of the spin pair with R Ashwin. Dhoni insisted on persisting with Ravindra Jadeja as the left-arm spinner because of his superior batting skills to Ojha. To live up to his captain’s faith, Jadeja will have to work *** knowing where his off-stump is.
Shikhar Dhawan and Pragyan Ojha…my condolences. This is absurd selection politics! Dead weight is dead weight even in a winning team!
Australia win the toss and will have a bat Michael Clarke: "It feels harder than Chennai. Still spin will play a big part. Might see a bit up-and-down from the fast bowlers, as it will deteriorate as the game goes on." Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Starc are out. Xavier Doherty and Glen Maxwell are in. So Wade plays, with a broken cheekbone MS Dhoni: "Looks like a different track, quite different from Chennai. Important we start well with the new ball. Will be a bit more pace and bounce. Reverse swing will play a role, as it looks on the drier side." India are unchanged, Pragyan Ojha, India's best current spinner for many, sits out again, this time on his home ground. If you are MS Dhoni, one way you could justify this is - Ojha gives you control, so does Jadeja, who can bat and field better. With Ashwin and Harbhajan in the side already, I might not exactly need Ojha to run through sides. As an aside, I fail to understand how Harbhajan still makes it to the side, barring the fact that Australia have so many l ...
Pragyan Ojha, the inform bowler for Team India who played really well in the recent times has been dropped in Hyderabad test at his home ground for the cost of out of form Bhajji ? Totally unfair decision by the team management...!!!
Hard luck again with the toss. However, team selection remains unjustified. The same non-performers by the names of Vijay and Harbhajan retained despite failing miserably. Firstly, Shikhar Dhawan richly deserved a test debut. Secondly, when Ashwin being a Chennai boy can be successful in Chepauk, why can't Pragyan Ojha be picked when the venue of the test is Hyderabad, that too when he has been India's best test bowler in the last one year. Seriously, a trick has been missed. And looks like that it is going to be a hard time for the bowling, unless the other bowlers come up with improved show.
Harbhajan over Ojha is plain unfair. Ojha was the highest wicket taker in the last series! And Harbhajan is so ineffective We will never be a No.1 team with this kind of selection attitude where you keep playing an incompetent 'senior' player. I wonder what Pragyan Ojha must be thinking. What hashe done wrong?
Confirmation from India. Maxwell and Doherty in for Starc and Lyon. So a new spinning combination. Wade is ok to play, so Hughes won't be wearing the gloves. India haven't changed their team, despite their best spinner of late, Pragyan Ojha, still sitting out. Australia will bat first after winning the toss. If they can make a similar 380 to the first innings of the opening test, they will need to bowl well and not let a batsman dominate their attack. Looks better with two spinners in the side. TEAMS: AUSTRALIA - DA Warner, EJM Cowan, PJ Hughes, SR Watson, MJ Clarke*, MS Wade†, GJ Maxwell, MC Henriques, PM Siddle, JL Pattinson, XJ Doherty INDIA - V Sehwag, M Vijay, CA Pujara, SR Tendulkar, V Kohli, RA Jadeja, MS Dhoni*†, R Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, B Kumar, I Sharma
Why needs the Winning combination? MSD stuck with same squad. Why need Bhajji again? Local boy and spinning sensation Pragyan Ojha should be in the squad. Murali Vijay also wants rest.
Dhoni faces 3 problems before the Hyderabad test? 3)Should India stick with the same opening combination? 2)Who should open the bowling? 3) What about Pragyan Ojha? ( should he be taken in the team ) What do u guys think comment fast?
In his first column for Cricbuzz, noted cricket expert Boria Majumdar writes about Ravichandran Ashwin and why he thinks the wily off-spinner will be vital for Dhoni's team if he continues to play the way he is doing.

Pragyan Ojha should come in Indian cricket team..
Ojha not given a fair deal, feels ex-India spinner While R Ashwin was the star performer, his spin partner from the previous home series against England, Pragyan Ojha, was left to longingly watch his team mates perform the victory dance on the "dirty" pitch, as the MA Chidambaram surface was dubbed.
India could miss a trick by not playing Pragyan Ojha at Hyderabad
Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Pragyan Ojha, Harbhajan Singh and Murali Vijay were out in the streets of...
The hindsight to India's comprehensive win in the Chennai Test last week is that just one bowler and two batsmen touched the international performance bar, and had R Ashwin not recorded his career best match haul of 12 wickets, India could have struggled to bowl out Australia twice. Spinners bowled 193 of the 226 overs India sent down in the two Australian innings in Chennai - 103 out of 133 in the first innings and a staggering 90 out of 93 in the second, when Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh opened bowling on the MA Chidambaram dust bowl. But while Ashwin's 74 overs in the match returned him figures of 12 for 198, Harbhajan continued to struggle to impress on his Test comeback with meagre earnings of 3 for 142 off 52 overs. Ravindra Jadeja - the third spinner who played in Chennai - did little better than Harbhajan with returns of 5 for 143 in 67 overs he bowled in the match. That certainly rings a bell, suggesting Ashwin saved the day for MS Dhoni and India after they decided to drop Pragyan Ojha. Ojha was t ...

Last time India played a Test in Hyderabad against Kiwis and beat them by an innings and 115 runs.R Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha shared 18 wickets, Zaheer Khan and Umesh Yadav, bowled 42 overs for two wickets in that match. Should Pragyan Ojha replace Harbhajan Singh for 2nd Test against Ozi? Cricwaves
Former India batsman VVS Laxman has criticised MS Dhoni's use of offspinner Harbhajan Singh in the Chennai Test. Making a comeback to the side and playing his 100th Test, Harbhajan bowled 25 overs - 11 fewer than Ravindra Jadeja - and took one wicket. Jadeja went for 71 in 36 overs, 16 runs fewer than Harbhajan conceded, and took two wickets. There was a time on the second morning when Harbhajan had not bowled for about 200 minutes; his last over had been about 20 minutes before tea on day one. When he did get to bowl, 51 overs after he had last operated, Harbhajan picked up his first wicket - that of Peter Siddle - but was removed an over after that. Even in his previous Test, in Mumbai against England, Harbhajan bowled about half the number of overs that R Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha did. Laxman said he was surprised Harbhajan was not utilised properly. "I am really surprised with the tactics of MS Dhoni," Laxman said on air in Star Cricket's commentary on the Test. "You want your spinners to take the major ...

And to think that Harbhajan came in place of India's most productive bowler - Pragyan Ojha! Is there any accountability in Indian cricket? It the same Test in which another off-spinner got seven wickets in an innings. How long will this brazen protectionism go on? Are the selectors picking a private team or the national team?

Pragyan Ojha, start attending Page3 parties -you will earn a place in the TEAM
India will loose this Test Match because of MSD's obesession with favouring his Chamchas from North India. The Indian cricket team under the Captaincy of Srinivasan Chamcha MSD has gone from bad to worse. I think very soon India will be Number 7 or Number 8 in Test Cricket Ranking. If MSD is not removed as Indian Test Captain ASAP then India will keep on loosing as MSD doesn't have the Test Match temparament both as a batsman and as a Captain. MSD is not a startegic thinker and wilts under pressure and seems lost. I saw his Captaincy in the Test match at Sydney and a Cricketing Novice would have rotated his bowlers better than what he did. MSD lacks, guts, courage, conviction and intuition which are essential traits if you have to be a successful Test Captain. Over and above these frailities his selection of players leaves a lot of unanswered questions. His choice of Bhajji and Jadeja will result in India loosing this Test Math and perhaps the entire series. Pragyan Ojha is a much better quality bowler t ...

Indian selectors decision based in emotional basis hurting India. Why the most wicket takers Pragyan Ojha out of playing eleven?
Yet again, India let sentiments trump common sense. They probably shouldn't have picked Harbhajan Singh over the consistent and disciplined Pragyan Ojha. Day 1 of the Chennai Test was a very poor one for Bhajji. Let's see what Day 2 has in store for combative Sikh, and India.

Ashwin gained spin, dip and bounce while harvesting six wickets, but the rest tended to pitch too short and gave the Australians room to manoeuvre the ball around the MA Chidambaram Stadium. Ishant Sharma and the debutant Bhuvneshwar Kumar appeared peripheral members of the attack; the omitted Pragyan Ojha can feel justly aggrieved.
Ashwin rattles Aus with 5 wicket haul : Cool flizzers Australia's weakness against spin was well exposed in the 2 warm-up games they played, but the lack of performance there not only added to their pressure but also on the likes of R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Harbhajan Singh and Ravindra Jadeja to deliver the goods. Among the aforementioned, it was Ashwin who would have felt the bulk of the pressure. Home Ground. Lead Spinner. And as his skipper's go-to man. The right-armer however lived upto the billing by picking up the top 5 wickets and leaving the Aussie top order reeling. With the openers off to a solid start, Ashwin was introduced into the attack early, he created an immediate impact by getting David Warner to edge to slip, but Virender Sehwag put down an easy chance. The Tamil Nadu man did not let that affect his bowling as he soon had Ed Cowan out stumped. He went one better soon enough, getting Phil Hughes to drag one back onto the stumps and restore parity for India. If the morning session was a g ...

I'm surprised how they dropped Pragyan Ojha: Kris Srikkanth
why & has choosen instead of Pragyan ojha:-):-)

No fireworks for Harbhajan..!! Harbhajan Singh completes his Century, selected merely cos of his past records & not cos of his current form.. And a deserving player like Pragyan Ojha left Out.. !! Hope it doesn't cost much to Team India..
India made a big blunder by selecting Harbhajan ahead of Ojha. Do you agree?
Seven wickets to India.Six wickets for Ravichandran Ashwin.Ashwinmustbe desperately missing Pragyan Ojha.
The team selection of the Aussies displayed intent - Mathew Wade at no.6 and Henriques at no.7 - Message: we trust the skill sets and therefore are ready to push for a result; India invariably love their insurance. For the sake of an extra batsmen, they sacrificed a more genuine left arm spinner. Message: doesn't matter the skill sets, we always like a bit of a cushion.
Dropping of India's No. 1 test Bowler Pragyan Ojha is defying any logic.rightly said "Indian cricket team management is group of Jokers".
Dhoni kindly don't allow bhajji to play next tym! Two off spinners? Try Pragyan Ojha!
Harbhajan should not be in team.Why is he in eleven when Pragyan Ojha was best spinner against England.He is out ,Bhajji in.Amazing India .
Poor chap, Pragyan Ojha after putting an excellent show against England he was made a scapegoat to accomodate Harbhajan Singh.
So, its time for Team India to congras on plying 100 test and bring back Pragyan Ojha for the next test match
Day 1 of 1st Test between India and Australia: The Aussies will feel a lot happier than the Indians. They batted first on a pitch that will take a lot of turn on the last day and have put on 300-plus on the board with 3 wickets standing. The bonus is that Clarke is still out there. India can only rue missed opportunities in the form of Pragyan Ojha. Instead of a known performer, India chose to go with the useless Harbhajan Singh and the bits-and-peices player Jadeja and have only themselves to blame. Hope Dhoni and Fletcher show more sense in the next test else Ashwin will be overbowled and eventually injured...
Any Idea why was Pragyan Ojha [ The Only Indian Bowler in ICC Top10 Test Ranking] was dropped out of the team and replaced by Harbhajan Singh who had an average Ranji Season.. Where are we heading??
Bhajji *** and BCCI please sack him soon...Pls let him start his own business... He his wasting Pragyan Ojha's chances. indVsAus
Pragyan Ojha's exclusion from the team has made Ashwin a hero today
Was it a correct decision to include Harbhajan Singh instead of Pragyan Ojha ???
How does Pragyan Ojha feel when he watches Ravi Jadeja bowling with the new ball? a) Suicidal or b) Murderous

Will India feel the lack of Pragyan Ojha as a second supportive spinner to ashwin?
Its becoming more of Harbhajan's test than India v/s austrailia :) :)
