Saini also has test match potential in the long term

 

I haven't see Saini bowl in a FC match in the last 2 years .... so, won't be able to comment.

 

Have you seen him bowl in a FC match in the last 2 years ?

 

I have seen Siraj, Shardul and Rajpoot bowl in FC  in the last 1 year .... and Aniket C , 20 months back in FC.

From a " test match potential "  point of view, Siraj should have played both matches and other pacers rotated.

True. he's the most complete of the bunch.

Backups need to be created for all players.... to cover for injuries

But some of the selections have been baffling... Gambhir , that TN opener, Yuvraj and Raina. Not sure if they will pick actual new talent

true. there are still some open positions both in odis and tests (and esp in t20s)

     Seems like below is almost  what selectors & Team management have zeroed in for WC 2019 :    

   

 I think openers slot is sealed till WC 2019 - Dhawan, Rohit & Jinks( even though not liked by ICFERS including me) .

     No 3  - VK . 

     No.4  -  Pandey, KL & Hardik

     No.5  - Dhone & ( ?)

     No.6  - Kedar & ( ?) 

     No. 7  -  Jadeja & Axar & (?)

     No.8  -  Kuldeep & Chahal  & (?)

     No.9 -   Bhuvi 

     No.10 -  Bumhra 

     No.11  -  Shami & Shardul 

 

     Selectors should also try before WC19  -

       No. 5 - second keeper  between Pant & DK  to finalise 1 of them .

       No. 6  -  Try out Shresyas Iyer . His  batting position can be interchanged .

       No. 7  -   Try out Krunal .

       No. 8  -    Check out karn Sharma - is he better than Chahal ? ( Guy bats a bit ). I think he has improved . Looked good in this year's IPL and now doing well.

 

I think most of the rotation will happen among these only,  till WC 19.

 

      AND  MSD  & HAHANE will be in WC 2019 squad . KITNA BHI RONA DHONA KARNA HAI , KAR LE . NO USE

Axar or Jadeja are being played at 8 and not 7.

 

In WC 19 .... we will most probably play another quick in that slot

 

Hardik is a surety in the 11 if fit.

 

Need to try Krunal in place of Jadhav in some matches

That is not a like-for-like swap though. Krunal < Jadhav as a batsman; for that matter, I think Krunal < Hardik as a batsman as well. And I'm not really sold on Krunal's bowling. Seems a reasonably accurate and smart bowler, but very unpenetrative - I don't think there will be much diff between his bowling returns and Jadhav. I think neither of them is the answer.

 

What we need is a proper batsman (who can also mount recovery) and bowl 5-6 overs (at most). Although I'm not very convinced by Shankar either, I think he is more suitable.

Krunal is a proper batsman. He missed out on two ranji seasons in a row due to injury but he has done better than jadhav in IPL. We need a hitter at 6-7 which he fits very well.
