KKD hatsoff

Recommended Posts

He is wayyyyyyyyyyyy better than Rahane, kl Rahul, Pandey etc. DK needs to be permanent part of short formats. Should be our #4 in ODIs just for his batting. But really dhoni needs to go and allow Karthik to take his spot in ODIs. #5-6 in T20. 

 

DK is our lucky charm in most tournament wins.

DK always had the talent but kept underachieving. Also had a choker tag on him.

 

What a way to comeback into the Indian team. 

 

One of the best ever T20 knocks.

 

That too in finals.

 

Don't think he will last long in Indian team due to his inconsistency but i don't mind him in place of Dhoni.

DK was brilliant today. Hats off. Games are some times won or some times lost. But yet, it is annoying to see the chest thumping of these Bangladeshis. Thanks to DK for avoiding that to happen.

Which other Indian cricketers does @Khota support for short formats and long formats?

Except for the pace bowlers/ and so called all rounders rest of them are all worth keeping on the team. This is a good batting unit and Washington is a revelation. He should put pressure on all spinners. Dhoni is not as good as Karthick as was evident today.

Interesting. I don't think Rahane should be in short format at all. What say?

He has been for me one of biggest wasted talent of Indian cricket,is he finally coming ito his own?? 

Still has few years left in him and can play a part in the next world cup.

 

He is closest we have to an abdv with his 360 play,what a player.

Rahane has his shortcomings but he is not as bad as people make him out to be. Let us wait till IPL is over to find out the good players. The nucleus of Indian team is great and if there is one and only one change I want I would love to see three formats and three captains. Kohli being captain of all three formats is wrong. That is one change I would like to see.

This Indian team is for ages if handled properly. This is the golden era of Indian cricket.

This second coming of karthik has been a revelation. I was skeptical looking at his past record, but he seems to be a much more confident player now. Has not put a foot wrong since coming back in ODIs - he is the best bet at number 4 till the world cup. 

I am converted :hatsoff:

Maybe his 2nd wind will be great. I can see him amassing 3000 odi runs and 1000+ T20 runs if given permanent spot in both short formats. 

Hell he can win us the world cup next year as a finisher. I would pick him in the squad as he has experience playing big tournaments and especially England.

Brilliant innings.

 

He should get an extended run in LOIs based on how he batted in this tournament.

after this 29 runs of 8 balls not out , if he is not given a steady run in limited overs or t20 or even in Test matches, it would not be justice.

when he came he hit rubel's first ball for a SIX, he was fully confident of winning the match when he came, he was asking shankar to score a single and give him chance to bat and shankar was not even managing to do that...Shankar had lost his cool and temperament, he was not relaxed enough to play properly.

 

i would be tempted to play karthik in tests,odi and t20 as he is batting beautifully , even in previous matches when ever he batted he batted as well as manish pandey so he is doing what a batsman would do and he has been selected even when we had dhoni , so it is clear that the selectors know that Karthik is a genuinely good batsman.

 

he should have been sent ahead of vijay shankar for sure.
