Rayudu...is he good enough to play intl cricket?

Recommended Posts

Well..

He is playing best cricket of his life. He seems to be different mode and best batsmen this season after KLR.

But somehow, I get the feeling that he is not good enough at geninue pace.

Is he good enough?

Before anyone jumps on the rayudu bandwagon let me remind you a player called paul valthaty who played for punjab and literally owned the IPL in one of the previous seasons, does anyone even remember him now? IPL form shouldn't be taken seriously unless it is sustained for more than three seasons

IPL is LOI so yes he may be capable for LOI, the problem is do we think he is good enough for #4 or 5 spot, which is the place that has an opening. 1, 2,3 are pretty settled in ODIs, but T20 team needs a whole new restructuring.

An average player in great form. In September he will be 33. And young talent in India is showing a lot of promise. 

He's in consideration for WC.. which is a year away..   34 is not a bad age to be playing a WC..

 

Other 'young talents' will likely be in consideration after 2019 WC

Whether we agree or not, 5 of the top 7 slots are decided for World Cup 2019.

 

1. Rohit

2. Dhawan

3. Kohli

4.

5. Dhoni

6.

7. Hardik

 

This means  4  and  6 are open.  

 

At  6 we need a big hitter cum 6th bowler.  So, Rayudu is not suitable for this slot.

 

That means Rayudu is being tried for 4.  We already have Rahul and Kartik for this.

 

We should have tried a big hitter cum 6th bowler in place of Rayudu ... for the open 6 slot.

We have Pandy and Karthik for number 4 spot. But, Rayudu will make a good case in his current form! He might as well retire after the 2019 WC.

Isn't Hardik Pandya the big hitter + bowler?

He is the 5th bowler.  We need a 6th bowler who can bowl 4 or 5 overs to cover for the inevitable bad day that one of the 5 primary bowlers usually have.

 

Just 1 big hitter is not good enough in modern day ODIs. Atleast 3 or 4 are needed. This is why I want Rahul at 4.  He can hit big when needed.

Pandey has been dropped from the ODI side.

 

Current form in T20 tournament played in Asia may not translate to a good ODI performance in England.  Rahul has a much better allround game.

Rayudu is not a one season wonder. he has done well for MI in most seasons.
