Recommended Posts

Just now, Rasgulla said:

What are dhawan kohli getting from this series other than average 

Dhawan is still understandable as he is coming after being dropped and injury, he is in form and shud be allowed to make full use of it

What are rahane, karthik, yuvi, kohli, jadeja, umesh doing...........some needed rest some have no future

This series is like what I'd imagine sex to be like with the same partner after 60 years of a relationship.

 

You're doing it, you don't know why you're doing it even as you're joylessly doing it, and you, your partner and the rest of the world are thinking - 4 GAWD'S SAKE, Y U DOIN' IT BUB?????

Nailed it man :hysterical: 

 

Hoping for more gems from you. Please don't disappoint :phehe:

I guess before this series started this was the bail the Windies out cause they failed to make the CT thus losing revenue series.

 

But its also now become the rehabilitate players who are not that good enough at the highest level series.

 

Can till be salvaged somewhat if Pant and Kuldeep play remaining matches.

This series could have been so meaningful if we had played

 

Pant

Iyer

Samson

 

Shankar

Krunal

 

Siraj

Nathu

Thampi

 

Kuldeep

Chahal 

 

all together

 

 

Thats a bit too much and unfair to those players. Believe me a loss early in their careers would not be good for moral.

 

But every ODI needs to feature 2-3 of these new players.

You are overestimating this current WI ODI team.

 

We would still have won this series comfortably if say 8 new players and 3 older ones had played.

 

Most of the players I named have played lots of A team games, IPL matches and some have played for India too.

Bail out cause after they backstabbed bcci big time??????

The west Indian board must be shocked seeing a star studded team touring WI.

This is nothing but a series to give oldies a chance to score big agaibst weak team to glue themselves tighter to thr team.

 

Pathetic!!

This is the Rahane series.

 

Exclusively played to ensure he can keep his place till 2019.

 

I am sure we will soon play a series with. Srilanka were MSD will confirm his place for 2019.

 

Just not sure who we can play to help of Yuvi.Maybe Namibia ?

This series was arranged for dhoni and yuvi. But they cannot even pull it off against WI.What to do? :cantstop: Maybe we should play a series with UAE.

I just something call asian premier league, so t20 league of asian team where Nepal was heading the table and India were right at the bottom so you can imagine quality of the tournament. Mind you even that was more interesting than yesterdays WI game.

dude Sandeep Sharma had a good IPL and was part of the team to tour Zim. He was whooped in both T20s.

 

Lets be honest Rohit Shikar Kohli MSD are not going anywhere. Neither is Bhuvi or Bumrah. So your potentially talking about 2-3 slots for the new players to come into the final 11.

 

I think going forward Kuldeep will be in competition with Ashwin. Pant is going to be in the scheme of things for a middle order berth.

Sandeep Sharma got hit because he was too slow against Zimbabwe....but did we not win the series with all newbies ?

 

I am not asking for Kohli and Co.  to go anywhere....they will obviously play against the top teams.

 

But the only way to make these series competitive, when the opposition is fielding a 3rd grade side by ignoring / fighting with the top players.... is to play your A team. Otherwise no one will watch. This has happened twice against Zim, so it is nothing new.

 

Moreover, if we gave chances to 7 or 8 new players together, then the job of scanning the new players would have been done much more quickly than seeing 1 or 2 at a time.  This exercise is only possible against the real weak teams.

Fitness permitting, the squad should have been

 

Rohit, Dhawan (c), Mandeep, Iyer, Manish(guessing he's injured though), Yuvraj, Kartik, Pant, Krunal, Axar, Shami, Kaul, Rajpoot, Siraj, Kuldeep, Samson

 

And XI's in each match should have been:

 

ODIS 1 to 3

 

Dhawan (c), Mandeep, Iyer, Manish, Yuvraj, Pant, Krunal, Axar, Shami, Kaul, Rajpoot

 

ODIS 4 and 5 

 

Rohit (c), Samson, Iyer,  Kartik, Yuvraj, Pant, Krunal, Kuldeep, Kaul, Rajpoot, Siraj

Why Yuvraj?

 

And captain would have been Rohit in that case, he is VC.

Not trying to sound racist but you sound like a Punjabi apologist. I'll give you Kaul but why the f would you want to give chances to Mandeep and Yuvraj? What have they done in IPL or domestic to warrant a place over others?

I was against Yuvraj being picked from the outset, for the England series at home. But now he has cemented his place in the squad and we have to live with it. Him being in my theoretical XI, gives the middle order some experience.

 

I forgot Jadhav actually, he could (should) be there instead.

 

Mandeep Singh has been consistent in domestic ODI tourneys and made a few recent India squads, just for fairness and consistency he needs to be given a chance to prove himself or not. There are not a huge number of good domestic List A openers to choose from.

Cemented his place how......by struggling in every game

There are many many consitent players in domestic..........hooda has been

Mandeep has been openely exposed against good attacks, his short ball problem still exsists. Go check his batting in warmupp game agianst Eng ......the guy looked out of place on a patta 

 

Chances shudnt be given it shud be earned......

 

Kishen , pant both can open .............sachin, rohit, sehwag they were openers 

Manan vohra is way better then this hack

Didn't intend to sound racist. Apologies if offended.

I dont think you are or anyone on this board is rascist but categorizing players based on their zone rather than ability is not cool. We in the end all want Indian cricket to be the best and I dont think anyone on this forum wishes bad. Just honest difference of opinion.

I really did not understand Holder blocking Yuvraj bowling in the end with game out of hand. This just reminded me when Prabhakar and Mongia blocked with RRR was 9-10 or something. You either hit out or get out. 
You feel like making conspiracy theories after watching non sense like this.
