Yes, Vettori for Harbhajan is a good thought. Some may even put Saqlain Mushtaq before Harbhajan. Anderson misses out simply as Waqar, Wasim, Imran are there

The all time best teenage Test XI

No. The editor made no changes. However, you are right. That would have been a better Title

Accepted. The Headline could have been best Under 18 Eleven to play Test cricket. Cummins is super and I have updated my blogged article mentioning him. Thanks

Cut-off of 18 was taken. Hence Ranatunga got lucky.

Javed Miandad was 19. Otherwise certainly in. I kept cut off at 18

The all time best teenage Test XI

Absolutely. Vettori a master-class

I got data for 14 to 18-year-old cricketers. At 19, the number increased a lot. Hence instead of making guesses, I kept cut-off at 18. Ideally it should have been 19 i agree. and the Greatest of them all, the Don would have missed by a couple of months

2018 Boxing Day Test preview

Wonderful points Kopa. well said, indeed the team has to step up and try to get 30-40 each. and hope that one among Virat, Pujara and Ajinkya hit a ton

A look at cricket's 100 Test men

as of now i would simply say he is an exciting prospect. Too early to say next sachin or sunny. After all it was on a flat track with even Jadeja getting a ton ( full credit to both of course), apart from King Kohli as well .
i would remember the names of Shikhar ( 187 vs Australia on bedut, and the fastest ton by a debutant), Rohit Sharma, debut 100 as well, and Karun Nair , 300 in 3rd test innings, before labelling Pithvi the next tendulkar or Gavaskar

In Prithvi Shaw, have India unearthed the next Gavaskar or Tendulkar?

Exactly . I have no issues with Hanuma. If they were to play him they should have taken him in original squad itself

The inexplicable dropping of Karun Nair

excellent points
