Recommended Posts

http://www.news18.com/cricketnext/news/suresh-raina-targets-2019-world-cup-says-lot-of-cricket-left-in-him-1662119.html

 

take it in writing. He will be selected in ODIs after the T20 series in which I expect him to do well. 

 

T20+ IPL + English ODIs = World cup 2019 ticket booked.

 

He will deliver in the next world cup if selected. Loves batting on English one day pitches.

if he  stay on the backfoot expecting a short abll eveytime , he wont survive much ..

he can play short balls ( good in airy aliigator pulls ) if he staying in the backfoot  , but bowlers can bowl fuller balls and get him esily..

 

in the last ipl even vinay kumar was testing him with bouncers :rotfl:

Peak Raina if back ( big if) is a better hitter than Jadhav in flat LOI wickets. Peak Raina ( if curent one is back to that fitness and agility) is much better fielder than Jadhav its not even in same league of comparison. So can come back to LOI for sure, playing 11 may be he was a good player in the past.

People are talking like what we have now are incarnations of Yuvraj and Symonds.Even an unfit Raina would be better than the current hacks we have now in the middle order who neither can bat or field.

Totally agreed on this

if only we could have peak Symonds or peak Yuvi. Amazing destructive batsmen and utility bowlers and gun fielders.

Rahane iyer and dhoni out

Rahul raina and pant in

 

India will be boosted with left handers too which they lack. Short ball is not much of an issue at 5/6. Experince matter

Yuvraj and Symonds didn't become what they did overnight. Yuvraj took five years of international cricket to become consistent and here people expect young players to just debut and start thrashing international fast bowlers. Even Kohli too around two-three years before he started blossoming. Dhoni is the only real exception.

Agree with you but we don't have five years/ 2-3 years for world cup 2019. A team needs experience to win World Cup. You can have maximum 2 players with 1-2 years experience.

I think Raina is just included in T20 squad so that Selectors can see whether he is still good enough or not. Selectors are looking for a set of 30 players for probable squad. And it's not right to include/exclude Raina from that squad without giving him any matches.

 

If I am not wrong last time Raina played for India was Asia Cup T20 and World T20 where he failed miserably. If he has improved, then results will show in SA T20 and then he will be included in Odi squad.

Yuvraj came to the party against Australia in champions trophy 2000 with great innings when he was just 19.Yes, he took some time to get consistent but that skill was always there.I see nothing like that in either Iyer or Jadhav. On top of it, they are pretty poor fielders.
