Pant and KL , dream opening for LOIs . Both can use the pps well and on their day we could be 120+/70+  regularly , unlike these days where we crawl to 75/40 if Sharma is playing well 

Many think R Sharma is a clutch player in ODIs but to be honest he is more like a lottery. I can never ever trust him in a crucial match for a crucial innings. For all the talent he is hyped for he has remained a serious disappointment throughout hia career. Rohit is not bad but his habit of consolidating no matter the pitch or conditions hurt the team without many noticing it much. If we get better player than Rohit in ODIs then we should definite replace him. In t20s he should play in middle order with going from the first ball which I doubt he can consistently. If failed, throw him out.

Pant isnt an opener, IMO. He is best utilized in middle order.

kyun bhai shikhar dhawan ne kya paap kiye hia 

Am a big Dhawan fan , especially ODIs he's our second best player . I know it may not happen but I would like to see Virat down at 4 , cos he's just one player who can strengthen the lower middle order , if that happens Dhawan and pant can really go after from word go and KL at other end can drop anchor if we lose early wickets .

He will be fine batting anywhere in T20s , but he plays a lot of aerial shots and most likely will struggle or get out early in middle overs of ODIs so I think it's better if he starts his innings with field restrictions .

Sharma is not the worst player , but my problem is that he's taking an important spot in the LOI lineup . Openers can take the game away from opposition in power plays and we havent don't that since viru retird . Apart from that like you said , very unreliable gets out at the wrong time and every time we chase a big total he disappears . He can bat down the order inT20s , but from ODIs he needs to go .I have said this a few times , with him opening we are not going to win anything major .

why wud u change ur best batsman position , u dnt fix wat aint broken 

ur best batsman shud get max nunmber of balls . Virat is our biggest match winner n most consistent player ...why wud u give him less balls just to be safe. Thats a defensive strategy 

 

At 4 u need someone like Rahul,pant who has a extra gear then kohli

Ideally I wudnt , but with very little time to groom for a finisher  I think we need his experience down the order than at top , if you notice all these great performances in IPL are batting first and am not sure KL is a finisher either , it's a completely different approach and won't b easy for a young opener to change his game that quickly . Virat is proven and probably the only player currently who can play at the top as well as finish off games .

I don't buy the theory that your best player should face maximum balls , he should play is a spot where he can make the most impact . He may make a few less hundreds in the end , but you will see other lesser players playing more match winning knocks .

u hve dhoni and he is not going anywere u like it or u dnt , karthik has also thrown in his hat as a finisher and pandya is doing well

4 is middle order not finisher 

 

Virat wnt be as effective on 4, stats may differ coz the time was different n sample is small . Also he is adjusted to that role for yrs. It wud be the biggest blunder to change the role of ur best player......

 

that theory is correct u buy it or not , tendulkar wasnt the same player at 4 as he was at top, we did try this against SA in 2015 moving kohli to 4 and he looked unhappy. Dnt make ur best batsman unhappy coz he will win u max games

 

Virat has said he likes no.3 coz he can control the game

 

Now can someone do better then virat at 3- No

Will virat score more at 4 then 3- No

 

then why to change,
