Our selectors don't seem to get that bowling in bowler-friendly test cricket is about taking wickets over 20-40 overs, not just "containing" the oppsition with 10 oversof economical bowling in batsman-friendly ODIs.
Off topic: I guess Alok needs to convert to Islam before pleasing some of our more secterian members in this forum. One in particular, who hasn't posted in this thread, just cannot be impressed by Alok, Tapash and Dhima no matter what they do, and takes bizarre pride in being what he is.
As you've pointed out technical limitations of TI,Aloks shuffling across the stumps is another glaring Technical mistake.
Both of them will get their chances,but I'd rather bet my money on Tushar than Alok.
