Rahane can be our floater for 2019WC in middle order- Kohli

Recommended Posts

"If he keeps performing like this, he (Rahane) is someone who has done the middle order job as well in the past, so he can very well be the floater for you in the middle order and he is someone that might allow you to take an extra bowler, in a big tournament like the 2019 World Cup, a big series before that as well,"

"It all depends on who are the guys who can do two jobs in the team, there are very few guys who can open and play in the middle order and I think Ajinkya is one of them. In the future, we see him providing more balance to us as a side in terms of taking an extra bowling option maybe."
-- Kohli

 

 

 

  • So they want to add another bowler rather looking for an all rounder like Krunal or shankar 
  • Rahane n floater:giggle:, he has to be hidden in batting order half the time when slogging is needed
  • If scoring runs against a side whose captain deserve a place in 11, is the criteria no wonder people wanted him to fail

 

 

Someone plzz give kohli a whack on his head

Captain clueless. Has no idea what he is talking about. He is actually not good against spin which is evident from his record in India and also struggles to rotate the strike or hit the boundaries because his career strike rate is below 80 and he is not even consistent averaging 33 after 75 ODIs. He is a poor ODI batsman. Period.

 

KL Rahul should be our No.4 or someone like Pant or Manish Pandey could be given a chance.

LOL.

 

Rahane is an ODI floater and Rohit is our test match floater.

 

God save Indian cricket from this path of "legal" corruption we are going down.

Yup just when u thought rohit at 3 in test was the biggest joke , he comes up with another gem

No please no!! Playing him at 4 in the last WC hurt us already.

Last wc? If i am not mistaken he did fairly decently..75+ against SA off 60 balls 

Against Australia he tried hard by scoring 40+ off 60+ balls but barring dhawan all were **** in that match.

We lost that world cup because of virat and rohit failing at a crucial point and mediocre captaincy.

he ruined the chase in wc15 SF... 

what were other chutiyas doing? Rohit and Virat? I am the biggest hahane hater but to say we lost that match because of him and the world cup is frankly nonsense. I would say we lost world t20 semi final because of him..not the world cup. Indians fans are such chutiyas sometimes.

Try Pant Mr skipper.

Give him confidence and he can be your 2 in 1 floater + wicket keeper....that is,three in one .

Clearly tells you that the defeat against windies at Mumbai T20 sf is still being thought as windies coming really good on their day or bowlers having an off day.  Whole cricketing world knows that we lost because of rahane but the board and captain have no clue.

Rahane plays 2019 WC i will support the WI team.

Traitor. :protest:

Common Rahane is not even so bad.

Remember Amla wasn't so good initially. And then was Amla 2.0 reborn never to look back. Rahane is still young and at least have some future. What are Yuvraj and dhoni doing in the team?Not sure if they could maintain even bare minimum standards by 2019.

If yuvi + dhoni plays 2019WC maybe then you can think about not supporting India.

Amla? His average was 50 by his 10th ODI. A couple of dips below 50 for a small number of games after that. But from his 25th game his average never fell below 50. Rahane is no Amla.

1) Who would Rahane replace in the middle order  ?

 

2) What would happen to Rahane's weakness against spin...and the fact that spinners often bowl more overs in the middle ?  Is Kohli not aware of this or deliberately overlooking it ?

 

3)  How would a person who is likely to replace another batsman, allow the team to include an extra bowler ?

Of course Rahane is a quality 'name' batsman to have in the ODI as reserve, easy to jusify his selection on paper at least.  And let's not speak out loud the fact that younger batsmen like Manish Pandey etc who can genuinely put pressure on the current 'stars' and contend for that #3/4 slot. are never given the opportunity to establish themselves, thus ensuring the maximum brand value for Team Wrogn.

Virat was the part of this team when dhoni openely said that rahane struggles in middle specially against spinners 

Well if team learned that why are we going through that whole process again, we have been trying to make rahane a floater ever since and nothing gr8 has happened

 

The most important question is With like of Rahul, pandey, pant, iyer, hooda, rana emerging middle order contenders how long do we keep trying on rahane n keep these youngsters away from chances. We have so much to try and we arent passed over a failed experiment

Rahane is best when the ball comes onto the bat. Will not work out (not that he works out as opener) in the middle order.

 

I think Rahane at best can be a good back up to Rohit and Dhawan. 

 

Rahul is a better LOI player than Rahane. But the problem with him is injury.

Look at the arrogance of Kohli. Who is he to determine the order. He should be sacked as the captain because of the loss. He is smiling and carrying on. Shameful.

Who is he to determine to determine the order? He is captain, bhai. A right to determine the batting order doesn't mean a batting order done right.

Not necessarily giving example of ODI or tests. Way to miss the point.He was regarded as a top talent but he had a horrid start to his career in tests. His technique was severely criticised and he was dropped. He went back and had a complete transformation. Made a strong comeback. People now doubted him adjusting to shorter format and he proved them wrong again. The example was meant to show that some class players can have 360 degree transformation if they have right attitude. Rahane seems to have those qualities. He is hard working and willing to learn. I am all in favour of dropping him but the way ICFers here percieve of Rahane is like he is a tailender in ODIs. He is still good but not good enough. Don't mix format. He has no business being in t20s in any capacity.But as an opener in ODIs Rahane is not bad at all.

 

    Having said that he needs a kick in the bum so that he brings much needed changes in his game to adjust to current ODIs demand. He needs to work harder on his efficiency to find gaps. In tests its much easier. Not so in LOIs. Strike rotation can be worked on.

yes I agree, some Indian fans are such chutiyas that if anyone says "X ruined a chase", they will immediately convert that statement to a "you said X is the reason we lost that match". Lots of difference between both the statements. there are quite a few reasons why we lost that match... as you mentioned kohli, Rohit...  and also like I said Rahane, who did his part to ruin the chase..

Rahane is a pathetic ODI batsman .End of story.

Are you high or what lol

 

Against SA played a blinder.

 

Struggled against Aus. 

 

And please explain how exactly was captaincy mediocre and where did it cost us? Apart from playing Rahane at 4..

In the middle order (excluding Zimbabwe)

 

 

 

 

Rahane averages 31 at a strike rate of 82 .Beyond comical.

 

 

 

 

Yeah floter :hysterical:

 

 

Need to look beyond stats. He has been tried in t20s and his struggle in t20I has skewed perception of not able to accelerate. In ODIs as an opener even dhawan after playing positively ends up with 110 strike rate or around. Rahane has capability to do that though he has failed until now. Statisticall, yes he has been bad. But he is very much capable.But no need to over exaggerate his failure and pass judgement that he is pathetic.

Out of specialist batsmen who hqve played 70+ ODIs for India, has there ever been anyone worse?

Why blame him for wanting to be part of ODIs.  Even Dravid played so many ODIs at 60 SR before he was forced to be keeper.   Blame the captain for questionable decisions.
