Constant chopping & changing affecting confidence of players Like Rahul, Rahane, Bhuvi - Harsha Bhogle

Recommended Posts

Of course it has to. Horses for corses is fine but this is something else on the lines of madness!

 

When the vice captain who has the best away average, a promising youngster who was in the top 10 test rankings recently and a bowler who got you wickets and runs in the first game can be dropped for non-performers like rohit, dhawan and ishant, then you have a big problem.

In other news Harsha hurt his knees against the desk while settling  down in the commentary box.

 

This has impacted his brain and ability to commentate so he has been “niggled” out.

 

 

His brain was impacted because he was sitting down. You have the location of his brain wrong :biggrin:

I have no respect for Bhogle. As a matter of fact I have quit reading him as he is as useless as they come.

These players are professionals. If they are asked to sit out for a test and it messes their confidence then they are in the wrong profession. Why dont we give them a tenue so that they can be their for life. I have seen the best players benched if they bad few minutes. Bhogle is clueless.

Clearly works for your favorite Dinesh Karthik :phehe:

 

every time he is in after being out the pattern seems to be a couple of ducks followed by an attractive 30, a stunning catch followed by dropping a couple of absolute dollies/stumping

 

Clearly every time he is out,he plays like he has never left and learnt anything :cantstop:

I have two choces here. Either to explain how the sitting out period works or ignore you for your ignorance. I will take the easy way out and ignore.

And what's affecting the confidence of a regular player like pujara?

Pujara to me doesnt have what it takes to score overseas, at least not in his current approach. He's on his 3rd SA tour and he still gets in a shell.

Can’t entirely blame Kohli about dropping Rahane because of his recent loss of form. Rahane was the best bat overseas on last tour, however since he is working hard to evolve into an Odi/T20 bat it is no surprise that he is into his shot early in the tests matches and hence his tame dismissals. Didn’t help his case when spinners are around. When players like iyer, kl rahul, mayank agarwal around, selectors should not consider Rahane in the short formats and ask him to concentrate on the tests.

Vise versa, selectors should stop selecting players like Dhawan and Rohit in tests format.

Thanks I guess

I am sorry. I was in a rush. let us say a player named "A" is out to a yorker. Make him sit out for a match and let the batting analyst go over his shot selection/defense technique against this particular delivery over and over again. Work on his weakness to correct it. take him to the nets for hours to rectify it. Next time he comes he will be fine. Coaches will bench Lebron without hesitation if he is doing something wrong. There is no shame in that. Baseball player who dont perform are sent to minor leagues to work on their games. Nothing wrong is sitting out.

 

Bhogle is clueless.

 

Karthick is a prime example of someone who has improved his game.
