Ashwin as captain (KXIP fans only)

  1. 1. Ashwin as captain (KXIP fans only)

    • Sack him immediately
    • Give him until end of the season and reasses
    • Definitely keep him long term

If Ashwin wants to create a legacy he needs to forget his IPL dream and sign a 5 year contract with a county team. He has already delivered good performances in 2 WCs, 1 CT and 2 WT20s...nothing else to prove in shorter formats. Besides he is never coming back in these 2 formats with so many prospects ahead in line. If Ash can have a few good overseas matches (in SA he bowled very well btw, plain unlucky that 6 catches were dropped off his bowling in Cape Town) and another good home cycle he is a legit Hall of Famer IMO. If only he can put his legacy above $$$, he will retire as a legend. Right now he's going nowhere. 

 

I would very much like it if Jaddu can also do the same but highly doubt it because there are some debts to be paid to the CSK crooks, besides I believe Dhoni is bisexual so even his needs need to be fulfilled and unless a better alternate pops up Dhoni isn't letting his lover go. 

 

P.S. Last para j/k, Dhoni chamchas shanti se baithe raho

Building a team around retirement home escapees is asking for trouble.

 

There's a reason the old man is known as Chris Fayle.

 

Yuvraj Singh has been Yuseless since circa 2014.

 

Add that to a dire middle order, mediocre oversees players & trundlers who regularly get smashed and its a surprise they are not near the bottom of the table. It's a horribly constructed team. 

What a post :hatsoff:he failed when they had to deliver got out for a duck today.

Didn't do justice to the start they got.

1) He didn't thrive as a player with captaincy. He was holding himself back lot of times. Not in great bowling rythm. One thing Mohali is one of the least suited ground for him. 

2) Inexplicable batting order

3) HOpeless fielding right through the tournament. He himself is a lousy fielder. Didn't exactly set an example

 

He has not even captained his state side enough i think. I wouldn't say because of him they lost as it was basically Rahul or bust team.

no have a better team culture and thats what ashwin pointed it out in the end and he wud be knowing it since he has played for CSK knwn for gr8 team culture

 

U cnt have a mentor like sehwag who wants to plays his buddy throughout

Owner who gets impatient with few looses 

 

Then give him chances n if he fails well try someone else, cnt give up on him so soon. Their are no good captains avl easily

Ashwin is a smart guy. But their squad selection is horrible this season. Should have gone for guys like Lendl simmons. Couple of young talents.

KXIP needs to buy a good WK-batsman next season so that Rahul can play freely as a pure batsman. 
Jitesh Sharma will be a very good addition to the side.
