Pant was never competing with Dhoni for a spot .I have argued here few times , he's an LOI opener and won't do well in the middle order .

But team management consider him for middle order. So he is/was competing with dhoni. Even if not if he gets to the team as an opener and does well dhoni's spot would still be in danger . Better to be safe than sorry. :laugh:

Have been saying the best thing for india and pant is that hes let to open . His game is more suited for that with the number of aerial shots he plays he needs the help of powerplays .He may develop into a more versatile batsmen in few years , but at this point the mgmt should look at easing him into a role where he can succeed ...unfortunately the priority is make life comfortable for seniors like rohit and dhawan .

 

Dhoni should not be in T20 side , no doubt ..but his replacement should probably be hooda or sarfraz , not pant .

The mgmt is stupid and have no intention of developing any youngster .

You know very well Dhonis spot is assured even if pant does well in the middle order , pant can still continue to play as a batsmen and no one will question that .

Good to see him back in form. Seriously, selectors have screwed up big time with this guy. Unnecessarily dropped him from T20 team.

Because he has no offside game. Slogs everything towards cow corner. :phehe:

 

He can get away with that while facing trash Indian domestic trundlers. In the international scene, he'll be eaten alive by bowlers with half a brain. 

If he is bowled outside off stump he will play accordingly. Since he is always looking for runs and big hits, he will pick cow corner since it's a natural slog spot for deliveries on stumps or down leg.

It is great to see him back in form.  It will be great for his confidence!  They should've given him more chances when he was first dominating, but did not.  He went through a crisis (father's death, drop in form) and is working his way back.  Kudos to him, but let us not forget that this is the Himachal Pradesh attack.  If he keeps playing like this against better bowlers, he will get his place.

Why do you he doesn't have off side game? I have seen score off side last IPL.

+1. First sign of every good batsman is runs on onside. Every one is weak on offstump. Thats why coaches tell to bowl offstump line. As long as he is having a decent S/R, who cares if runs are commong off legside or off side.

Dada played offside game all his life and he was very successfull at that.

Well so would Shahid Afridi, except bowlers at the international level aren't as stupid as he is to keep bowling to his strengths. :giggle:

A player with real X-factor @maniac

 

A player with his talent should be one of the first names in a T20 team but instead we are forced to watch turgid, stale, ageing batsmen knocking the ball around for singles or play out dot balls :facepalm: 

 

Why on earth is the T20 team so damn OLD?

Because they have to play because of their 'brand value'.

Have you seen AB's slogging when on song? He is not supposed to replace Bradman, just Dhoni and his increasingly rare, under maintenance helicopters

Not saying he shouldn't be picked. Just that he's going to be found out pretty quick with his limited skill set.

So which 20 year old have great skill sets? Your comment is a classic argument of Dhoni bhakts who forget that Dhoni is the biggest example of being successful having very limited skill sets, even more limited than Pant.

Similar Hack like Maxwell couldn't even make into ODI team anymore.. Pretty much same situation. Atleast he doesn't slog everything to cowcorner.

pant is a keeper/bat, maxwell isn't. If maxwell was a keeper, he would be preferred ahead of Paine and Wade any day in ODIs. i think you dont even have this basic understanding of cricket.

 

also pant has played one less match and just 12 runs behind BHui.

Ricky Bhui is not a keeper.

So what ? batting spot Still up for grabs in LOI team :flute: and that keeping spot in LOIs will be there for Dhoni till 2019.. Its bit obvious he won't be played in Overseas Tests.. They are will go back to some experienced cricketers like Patel, DK or whoever.. Unless you are living in your own dilutional world where pant is everything..

There is only spot up for grabs in LOIs and that is keepers. No other slot is open.

This... poor agenda makers trying to target someone else for Kohli not backing hacks..

We need a cowlasher down the order. Batting position doesn't matter. Even Sachin started his career in the middle order. Dhoni's cowlashing has become weak. Not saying Pant is better at the moment (in ODIs), just saying it's not gonna make a big difference. Pant and Dhoni are a like for like comparison IMO, however there's a DK in between :P

 Where in your dilutional world ? They have already confirmed Dhoni ll play till 2019 minimum. So what exactly are you preparing for ? 

 

Rohit

Dhawan

Kohli

Dhoni

Pandya

Bhuvi

Bumrah

2 spinners 

 

4/6 Batsmens I listed will defo play in 2019 WC.. So basically we have 2 spots players are playing for.

Pant is competing for Keeper slot with Dhoni and should replace him at least in T20s.

Dhoni has to to from T20s .

Pant can still play in ODI's as a batsmen , when DK can play I see no reason why Pant cant . My point was , hes better off in the top order . I can see him play the role of Sehwag for us .

So let them bowl offside. :giggle:

Where's the issue? Who says bowlers at any level would bowl only one side. If you read my post carefully I am not even saying he has no offside game. He has. You are having delusion of his weak offside because he goes for big shots(aerial not drives) for scoring and naturally he will pick leg side.Almost all yuvi's sixes are on leg side. And this kid looks to hit everything so legside will be more prominent.

Almost every 20-year-old that rises to the top in India has a solid skill set based on the simple fact that they're not a hack like Pant. Our system produces much better batsmen than him.

If you think I'm delusional, I think you've not even watched him bat outside of highlights. The kid can barely score singles on the off side, let alone boundaries. He is a bonafide hack and not only is that going to be exposed, but he's going to look very stupid doing it.

Actually wanted to use word illusion. No idea how end up writing delusion. :laugh:

yeah like Dhoni with amazing skill sets. :giggle:  Even Kohli did not have great skill sets at 20 nor Yuvraj.  Tendulkar was the only batsman with a great skill set at 20 and Pant a is keeper batsman, not just a batsman.  When we talk about Dhoni, people give this same argument that he is a keeper batsman and not a specialist batsman and I agree with this.  I wont expect a keeper batsman to bat like a specialist batsman in test cricket.  it is just rare, very few have done that especially in overseas conditions. You have not even seen Pant much and already formed an opinion. these are still still formative years.

Both Kohli and Yuvraj were solid players at 20 even if not great. They had a brain, could adapt according to the situation and were not severely limited in their strokeplay. That's expecting too much from a hack who just swings at everything.
