India A team's tour of South Africa

Recommended Posts

This tour is being highly anticipated by cricket fans who like to follow young players.  It is due to start on 26th July with the 50-over matches to be played first.

 

The teams selected have been very good and are full of exciting talent.

 

I would personally specially look forward to the performances of

 

Siraj, Thampi, Aniket C, Saini

Pant, Iyer, Kishan

Shankar, Krunal

 

I hope the matches are telecasted. With the drama going on with the senior team, this tour could have good viewership.

 

p.s - Please sticky this thread.

Feeling sad that Nathu Singh missed out due to some reason.

 

Would like to know what it is.

 

He is a very international-type bowler with pace, bounce, swing, seam-movement yorkers, bouncers etc.

 

This video showcases it.

Out of the above guys i feel some of them have the potential of representing INDIA in the ODI/T20 team not all of them. i will Share Yes or NO as per my strong belief.

Mandeep Singh- Over rated opener ..BIG NO.

Shreyas Iyer- Very highly Talented YES.

Sanju Samson- Very highly Talented YES.

Manish- He is already a part of ODI team and he needs to replace UVraj.

Deepak Hooda- Cant be sure of his technique , he could be successful only if he proves as an allrounder. if he focusses on his batting and bowling he will compete with krunnal pandya and Ravinder Jadeja. this is good competition i feel krunnal has best chances to suceed as he is a restrictive bowler and a Good Batsman.

Karun Nair- Cant be Sure about him..i think manish pandey shreyas iyer kedar are better than him ,even samson and rishabh are better than him for ODI..he may be picked in tests if he plays well

vijay shankar is alternate to hardik and Hence he has great Chances as there could be time when Hardik is unfit or is out of form and thats the time vijay shankar could get a look in. actually he should go to africa, australia and england with india team.

axar- i dont like him as he is defensive spinner and he is OK to be picked as a replacement to an all rounder ..his batting is not good enough to be called as an all rounder just like Jadeja and i believe krunnal pandya will beat him and Deepak Hooda in future.

chahal..good Spinner , wrist spinner like our china man so he should get some chances.

jayant yadav..is kinda an all rounder so should compete with krunnal ,ravinder ,deepak ..i feel krunnal has the edge.

Basil- good yorkers..good pace.

Siraj- He is better than Basil thampi and faster too.

Shardul- he knows how to ball with old ball too and reverse swing but i feel Siraj is better than Him.

SID Kaul- He is a bit Slow so may not play for INDIA.

Thats a good news.....

Any replacement announced

Hope Shankar comes in his place. Shankar scored a century and bowled better (according to figures) than Pandya in the practise game against Bangladesh. He should definitely be in the scheme of things for tests.

Good  team..... good fast bowling trio....but Shankar should have played in place of Axar. What is the point of 3 spinners in SA   ?

Why 3 spinners in SA, out of which 2 are SLA? Shankar should have played in place of Axar or Krunal.

Thampi will alone give away many runs of this miniscule total. :nono:

Over to Siraj and Chahal now to win it.

Never understood why is Shreyas Iyer overhyped? He is one of those who seems never be able to adjust to higher levels. Yeah I know he has done good in patches in A tours. 

Thanks god Mandeep Singh is not playing. :phehe:

Manish did fine because he has loads of experience from Domestic and A tours. Moreover, he has played a few ODIs and T20s for India. That helps. I wish he had sealed his spot in ODIs. But due to his own mistakes and injury, chances of that happening are very low.
