Manish Pandey ahead of KL Rahul in T20s !!!

Recommended Posts

Pandey flopped in IPL, Sunrisers at one point dropped him and he only played because Sunrisers didn’t have decent batting resources

Pandey lacks the power game required at his batting position

 

to finish off at 21 runs off 20 balls vs Ireland, in final 5 overs of the innings is beyond hopeless

 

and yet he is in starting XI of India’s T20

some of these selection boggles the mind

Pandeyji brings stability. Imagine India scoring 250+ and Ireland losing by the highest margin ever. That would be such a low for this upcoming cricket nation and hence world cricket in general. We don't want them to end up like Netherlands after getting smashed by Lankans, do we ?

 

He's thinking on a very high level and beyond this strike rate nonsense. Kudos to Dhoni for inculcating this management culture into the team. 

Dhoni still is an asset compared to Pandey ji

Pandey - what an asshole...He’s the most selfish player I’ve ever seen. On this day and age he’s getting starts of 4 (10) and then ends up with a run a ball 20. He’s the only reason why the Nidahas final was even made interesting.

understand the diff between selfish n lack of skill

Doesnt he dive in field , had he been selfish he wudnt have to save his body

 

He simply lacks skills . If a player plays slow doesnt mean he is selfish

Pandey has never been a good LOI player for Karnataka, he's clutch and has played some good knocks under pressure but never been consistent. It's actually in the longer format he's very good, been oour best player. Plays spin and short ball as good as anyone in the country,weak against the moving ball. It's his unorthodox technique which has gone against his. Case of picking a player for the wrong format. 

Yeah don't agree he's selfish

Simple stat to show difference between the two:

Rahul - 4 dots in his entire innings of 70 (excluding dismissal)

Pandey - 4 dots by the time he got 4 runs (4 runs off 8 balls)

 

And Pandey came in when India was in a brilliant position against a minnow. Now you guys decide how much of an idiot/ego maniac Kohli will be if he decides to go ahead with Pandey over Rahul in Eng series.

Language, dude! Lets not call him selfish here.

 

Imagine if some billionaire invited us to be CxO of one of their companies and gave a truckload of benefits with it. Wouldn't we grab that opportunity and try to make the most of it instead of being truthful about our lack of experience ? That's pretty much every bad selection including Pandey. Its up to the selectors/leadership to make these calls and it sucks that there's recurring problems in very basic decisions.

huge diff between domestic n international

i think he struggles against spin on slow or even half decent pitches ....i find him worse then rahane in that case

Pardon my French, but this guy wouldn't take risks even when there's an opportunity for it and leaves it till the last moment. It's as if he's mainly playing for his place rather than the team. He keeps on getting selected whereas the likes of DK and Rahul are sitting on the bench. At least Raina with all his limitations always plays for the team.

I have my doubts. He doesn't even go for it...If he tries and fails that's a different thing. Against Ireland at a SR of 100 in the last 5 overs... seriously?

He atleast lacks skills to play in the off side, neither does have a powergame.Having him on crease surely puts extra pressure on the other batsman.Why is he getting so many chances is beyond any argument..There is simply no question who should be in , between  Rahul and Pandey..for other cricket Playing nations it wouldn't even be a question,or are we that blind??

He was certainly going for it but couldn't connect at all.

Pandey has to be the most skill-less batsman to play for the national team since Dinesh Mongia. 

 

Has no gears, match awareness or big shots. Plays in the same slow monotone way in every game. 

THE LEGEND HAS LAID THE SMACKDOWN ON MANISH PANDEY WHERE IS THE GIF WHEN YOU NEED IT

It's a wonder how the moronic selectors thought he's actually a t20 player. His batting style is fit more for the longer formats of the game. But he deserved his ODI chances though, and they just dropped him from that format. There is no sense to these selections whatsoever. 

I feel youngsters like Rishabh Pant, or Sanju Samson must be given a long run. Enough of chances given to Manish Pandey and Kedhar Jadhav, both are careless and inconsistent.To be frank, among given chances, He didn't have any remarkable performance except ODI Century in Australia.

pant definately yes, but he has to play more good innings for india-A

Samson has been inconsistent himself

 

Lets not forget manish pandey use to score a lot of runs for India-A

 

Pant n samson has to atleast do that so selector n captain take notice

Manish has been picked for the wrong format he should play the 50 overs format where he can play his sheet anchor role.The guy nearly screwed us in the Nidihas Trophy.

he struggles against spin on slow or subcontinental pitches like rahane does

I doubt he ll do well in odi's to , unless he plays in Sa or Aus where even rahane has scored a few

They are doing what Pakistani selectors did in the past playing T20 player in Test matches and Test players in T20.

Is that you or one of your friends with Shastri trying to explain him the benefits of Dhoni in team :winky:.

@velu makes sure that the PR of Dhoni remains strong as he keeps track of the players getting inspired by him and facing the hostile Anti Dhoni fans on ICF with ease :bandit:.

Manish Pandey is a top athlete, he is nothing like Jadhav, Rayudu. But it's obvious from his batting style that he is not suited for T20s and yet our genius selectors thought otherwise.

Pandey is useless in ODIs too. If not for the century in Australia, his ODI average would've been in the 20s. There's no place for someone like him in the ODI squad. The team needs explosive batsmen in the middle order. That Manish Pandey is not.

Now they are arguing Raina vs. Rahul - http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/23948389/play-england

 

Quote

You can hardly separate Rahul and Raina on current form. This year in the IPL, Rahul was the third highest run-scorer, with a strike rate of 158 and blasted the fastest half-century in the tournament's history, besides looking good for a century every time he got a start. Raina was among the top-15 run-scorers and integral to Chennai Super Kings winning the IPL

 

 

yup totally same performance
