I think India will send a second string team for this tournament but who you guys think will make the cut?

 

I think the squad will be like this:

 

Rohit 

Raina

Dhawan

KL

Pandey

Pant

Karthik

K Pandya

Chahal 

Dhoni

Sundar

Siraj

K Yadav

Thakur

Chahar

 

Still good enough squad to win the tournament

agree with resting but the prospect India v Pak match, I think none of the big players will want to miss out both in terms of factor playing Pak and the obvious PR value

Don't think that's an issue yes the prospect is high but the thing is we have a much important Australia tour coming up so you need players fit and fresh, I wouldn't risk these players

I believe India is going to send a second string squad as main players are supposed to be rested according to sportskeeda.

     There will be pressure  to send full strength team. Unless Kohli himself wansts to rest , he will be leading.

Very unfortunate how it is scheduled this is big tournament and would be good to send full squad.

 

What is the next series after Asia Cup? Home series in October?

 

Perhaps that can be used for resting players. 

 

Shikar

Rohit

Rahul

Virat

Pant

Hardik

Krunal

Bhuvneswar

Kuldeep

Jasprit

Yuzvendra

 

Manish, Dinesh, Shami, Gowtham

--  Kohli needs rest as he is having back issues.

-- Need to try new pacers in ODIs.

-- Gopal is a very good leg spinner who can bat too.

-- Big hitters from 3 to 7 in this team.

-- 6 bowling options too.

     Since Sundar has not played , he may not be picked .

     Looking at  current performance - Pandey may push  Iyer out. 

      6th bowling option big headache -Management is still looking for pure batsmen who can give 3-4 overs. So Kedar may sneak           in.    

       Me thinks only 1 new pacer may get selected , probably Khalil. Second spot may still go to Umeash.

Krunal should be our 6th bowler.

Tbh a lot depends on the next Test because if Ind loses they can send full strength but they wont if they win the next match.

 

Even scheduling of Asia Cup is really bad. India plays Qualifier and the next day they face Pakistan which could lead to fatigue and exhaustion.

That was the team that I want.

 

The team that I expect is far different.

 

Pacers may include Shardul and Kaul or Umesh.  

 

Dhoni will be there.

 

Rayudu maybe there and one of Kedar or Raina.

Krunal should be our 6th bowler.

     India  for me seems to be still hanging on to tactics used when there were 5 fielders outside the circle between 20-40 overs .

     Due to more cover on boundary line , part timers were successful. Hence one could get away with pure batsmen who could

     bowl 3-4 overs .But now as only 4 are allowed outside the circle , it is much more diffcult for part timers.

      So need little bit out of the box thinking from management . What if we go for bowling all rounders at no.6  than  pure

     batsmen who bowl 3-4 overs ? 

     Test this out for some 10-15  matches and see the result .  

      They should also check:

      1.In the last 3-4 years india has won when top 3-4 have fired , if top 3 are gone early , rarely they have

     won. So did pure batsmen at 6 helped in winning matches  ?

      2. Generally 6th bowling option will be used when big score is building up and regular bowler/s get hammered .

  Check in such matches how much part timers have leaked runs.

      3.  How many times the no.6 batsmen gets chance to play decent amount of deliveries ? In Top heavy india batting this stat

          will be very revealing. 

     4.  Which is good option to win a match - restrict the opposition to less score or allow them score more and then try to chase

          with a pure bat at 6 ?

     5.  Pressure creates wickets in One day  matches - A bowling all rounder will  put more pressure than part timer.  

          Hence they should really be looking at players who are more of  bowling all rounders  who are big hitters as generally

         number of balls they play is much less .   

           Players like Krunal, Gowtham, an improved Sundar  should be our top priority for no.6 as per this new changed approach. 

          Alas we do not have a big hitting leg spinner who would have been the best choice.

           Even in batting we need to consider some 7-8 overs as  power play overs during 11-35 over period rather than waiting to               hit out only at the end after 40 overs as there are only 4 fielders outside the circle while on last 10 overs there are 5 .  Also

          you will have best bowlers at the death. Target weaker bowlers of the opposition for those 7-8 overs in 11-35 period.

          This could be 1-2 overs at a time . go bang .. bang  then again normal .. again bang .. bang .

           But bowlers to be hit to be noted early.

           Find one aggressive batsmen to open so that first 10 you make impact herever possible.

No point in playing Bumrah and Kohli in Asia cup. Bumrah has just returned back from injury and Kohli has been having bad back. These two are crucial for India's chances in Australia. Bhuvi has returned, so I am assuming he will be part of the squad.

We are playing Pakistan twice....hope selectors remember this and decide the squad. Dont want to get embarrassed again. Kohli and co rest during WI home series. This Asia cup is not a tournament for trial and error.

Asia cup is not world cup. Kohli is playing through bad back now and in the heat of UAE, he might worsen it and might be out for couple of months. The last thing we want two months before the Australian tour. Bumrah just came back from injury and has shouldered heavy work load in the third test. He might do the same in Southampton as well. No need to play him in the heat as well. Rohit and Dhoni are sure starters, Kuldeep and Chahal will be there as well. India has a chance to try out young pace bowlers for this series. I will not play Yadav or Shami as well. Rahul or Dhawan can be part of the team as well. Kohli and Bumrah are our top Test players at the moment and we should not play them in Asia cup right after as 2 month tour in UK. Kohli would have played all the games (3 T20s, 3 ODIs and 5Tests) and it will be stupid to make him play Asia cup which in large scheme of things matters for nothing. India won the last edition, not sure how many people even remember that now.

How BCCI has fallen !!!! We are the hosts, it was shifted away from India at PCB's behest and now we don't have the balls to correct the stupid schedule? If ACC and PCB are going to bully us all the time what remains of BCCI? Spineless servile morons, miss Srini Mama.

Pretty sure that selectors won't send Kohli or Bumrah. Both of them are absolutely invaluable right now. Bhuvi might play as he's not playing the English series anyway.

Why do u want to rest him isn't  he resting enough while doing stunt on cycle. Let's see what he is made up off in absence of main players. As there won't be any hiding if kohli, dhwan and Rahul are rested as he has to come, up the order. Also there won't be any execus that he is not getting enough batting. BTW I agree to if he shall be permanently rested.

Why not bumrah, he didnt played the odi neither the t20s nor the first two tests.

Bowlers: Bhuvi, Chahal, and Kuldeep locked-in. Umesh will make the cut as I don't see him playing 2 more test matches in England so should be well rested. Pandya will be rested. Vijay Shankar will come in. If Bumrah plays two more test matches, he may be rested given how vital he will be in Australia.

 

Batsmen: Rohit is a locked in. Manish Pandey and Rayudu will most probably sneak in due to good showings in recent tournament. Although I strongly disagree with picking either one of them in ODI side. Kaarthik and Dhoni will be in. Dhawan/KL Rahul selection will be tricky. I suspect one of them will be named in ODI squad. Kohli should be rested.

 

Wild-cards: Wouldn't be surprised if selectors decide to include Krunal, Shubnam, and one of the younger pacers in the squad.
