Only 5 bowlers though.  To be on the safe side, you need an all-rounder who can bowl. One of Rayudu / Dhoni can be replaced with one of Pandya bros for example

Exclude Dhoni and include Kohli? So that even this team fails to reach play offs?

Why add kohli he will ask Shashtri to open batting and bowling, we can include andre russel instead to provide late order thrust.

pandya over one of karthik and dhoni as it makes no sense to have 3 keepers and both of them do same job with bat so pick one you prefer.

 

i think current karthik is better player than current dhoni so i will pick him otherwise very good side.

Pandya is good for what it's worth in T20's or even in ODI's. He gets hate because some fans hype him like he is the greatest thing since slice bread...chalo even that is acceptable but his over the top attitude without even doing jack at the international level is what cringeworthy.

 

On one hand Pollard gets so much hate for behaving like a superstar(obviously deserved) but even he has won his teams matches where as Pandya is getting a golden boy treatment...there is nothing wrong in backing his potential but he needs to perform instead of focusing on styles....right now I will quote number again,he looks like a future big boss contestant than a future genuine superstar of the game.

but he is performing and has almost scored 300 runs and got 18 wickets.

even for india imo his bowling won 2 odis in south africa and he already performed before on flatter tracks..i dont know what more people expect from number6 or 7 in batting line up but he does his job well enough and for mumbai was most important player overall.

 

more consistency will come with age but he is already a matchwinner and he is so valuable cos of that.

Pollard did well in one match this IPL. While scoring 260 runs and 18 Wickets isn't a performance.

I meant Pollard has won matches here and there in IPL and probably even for Westindies

And that's why he was retained and was one of the biggest draw in IPL.

All these players deserve the selection. One change I would make is replace Rayudu at #4 with ABD. Rayudu had a fantastic season but most of his runs came while opening and also slightly less pressure runs (winning team, batting at top) compared to ABD. ABD was sublime this season and most of his runs were under pressure (losing team, middle order, AB out game over kinda situations).

 

4 WKs in that team ... Rahul, Pant, Karthik, Dhoni !!

 

Edit: Just realised that only 4 foreigners are allowed in this team too. So yeah AB can't make the team in place of Rayudu.

Pandya has stats. Don't think he had any impact. His economy rate is very poor. Close to 9. Also his tuk tuk innings. REmember. I have gone through MI page. They are extremely mad at both Pandya brothers. Stats don't tell the whole story.

From an impact perspective Andre Russell was more impactful with a strike rate of 189 with bat. But for injury he would have been lot more useful. Still picked more than 13 wickets.

but you can only pick 4 overseas

Russel's ER is close to 10.
