With due respect to Yuvraj, who certainly helped Ind win matches in the past, no one should have a right of passage to team based on past performances alone. In today's world, it should be horses for courses. Best XI for a given match, nothing less, nothing more.

I agree with this, videos are highly inconvenient because they take much longer, apart from the fact that you can't watch them unless you are alone, because they will disturb others.

Its true I am in a college and most of the times the videos are blocked so its good to have the transcripts

Strongly agrees with Bubul. It is not convenient most of the times to listen to audio /video. As a matter of fact, I am skipping all audio/videos not providing transcripts.

Please consider having transcripts, so we can read and keep it to our selves, without disturbing our co-workers, friends or family. Thanks!!!

Totally agree with pranesh Chaudhary. At least have a transcript please.

Hey, Can you please continue having these pieces as written articles - I am sure there are a lot of people like me who would rather read than listen, not least because we are in office at times.

It is the wonderfully written articles/previews/reports/commentary which got me hooked to the site 6-7 years back and would love if it retained that bit even if becoming contemporary demands you to switch to other media modes.
