Truthful Tuesday | Stop the outrage - the ECB are right in resting players for the India tour

England have plenty going right for them heading into the India Tests. They are on a five-match winning streak away from home, their captain is in the form of his life and they have at their disposal two veteran bowlers - two all-time greats, you could say - at the absolute peak of their powers.

Truthful Tuesday | Why picking Washington Sundar for England Tests will set a bad precedent

It's difficult to gauge what's more rare. A net bowler making his Test debut in a high profile series, or him going to take big scalps of Warner and Smith among four wickets in the game and a crucial half-century to keep the team alive. Whatever it may be, it has fallen alright for India.

Truthful Tuesday | More than ever, Indian management and fans need to trust Navdeep Saini now

2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 - four years where Indian cricket was all over the place when it came to giving debuts to pace bowlers from the domestic circuit. Varun Aaron, Jaydev Unadkat, Abhimanyu Mithun, Pankaj Singh, and Vinay Kumar - five bowlers who were discarded before reconsidered.

Truthful Tuesday | Ditching Arjun Tendulkar by calling him a nepotism product is a sign of our own ignorance

When your surname is Tendulkar, an often-riveted discussion is bound to take place. Arjun wouldn’t have wanted any of this, but when you born with a silver spoon in your mouth, this is sure to make your life and every little incident attached to it - a tragicomedy of sorts.

Truthful Tuesday | It is time for India to move on from Wriddhiman Saha - altogether

Even if that tame chip to Marnus Labuschagne at short mid-wicket turns out to be Wriddhiman Saha’s last ever contribution to Indian cricket, he can leave with his head held high.

Truthful Tuesday | India should risk four pacers instead of taking safe Ashwin route to go 1-0 up against Australia

Ahead of India’s first day-night Test against Australia, in Adelaide, the popular opinion seems to suggest that Ravichandran Ashwin should be part of the playing XI purely on the basis of his performance against the Kangaroos at the venue last year. That’s where we almost get it wrong.

Truthful Tuesday | Why Ishant Sharma's absence is a bigger blow than Virat Kohli in Tests Down Under

If a battalion is going on a war, Ishant would be the king's most trusted aide. If you ask him to walk on water, he might not hesitate. You want him to be aggressive, bowl workhorse spells, dry up an end, break partnerships? He wouldn't utter a word and do everything till the last ounce he can.

Truthful Tuesday | Jurgen Klopp is right; but implementing the five substitutes rule could save careers

'Sky and BT have to talk. If we keep playing on Wednesday and Saturday 12:30 I am not sure if we will finish the season with 11 players,' Jurgen Klopp told Sky's Geoff Shreeves.

Truthful Tuesday | ICC’s desire of adding more flaws to an already-flawed product clutters WTC

Nothing in the ICC boardroom encapsulates the drama better than a classic Indian movie. It is both the drama and the story, it is mythic storytelling yet a fulcrum to a double-edged world that thrives on its narrative. The beneficiary of the entire idea is, however, left to interpretation.
