Pakistan dropped Hafeez from the team and here we brought back Rayudu/Jadhav

Recommended Posts

Asia cup squad announced for Pakistan today and they have dropped their experience player Hafeez for youngsters like Shan Masood and U19 WC star Shaheen Shah Afridi. If you recall, Hafeez was instrumental in propelling Pak's score to 300+ in CT finals but their selectors did not gave preference to past performances.

 

And here we are not only sticking with Dhoni but bringing back even more oldies like Karthik, Jadhav, raydu etc. Not a single youngster like Agarwal, Pant, Shaw, Gill, Iyer, Washington, Krunal etc got a chance.

 

What is so wrong with our selectors? How can they be so incompetent and blind?

If this our middle order then I would rather watch some other sport and not cricket.

 

 

Wondering how did we got so bad. If I recall, our selectors are very prompt in removing likes of Ganguly,VVS, Sehwag, Gambhir etc in the past for youngsters. But now we are just going backwards.

Kedar Jadhav's overall figures may look good ... but he has been poor against the big teams barring one series against England.

 

Plus he is a poor fielder.

Rayudu has a strike rate of 76 in this day and age ... and his apparently impressive average dips to 38 if we exclude Zim and Afghanistan.

 

Why would we pick a 76 SR  batsman  ?

Difficult to fathom selection of Rayudu  for the Asia Cup and Raina in England.

 

IPL performances are influencing ODI selections ... but these are 2 separate formats and require different skillsets.

 

Kaul and Umesh got in the ODI squad to England based on IPL performances too.

 

And Jadhav's ODI performances against top teams are being missed.

Not very impressive, but if us novices can see the obvious problems, why can't they ? Its not like any of us played duleep trophy. This goes for many experienced players and commentators who come up with silly ideas like Rohit for tests abroad and Rahane for Odis. 

 

There has to be some other forces at play which we're not privy to, such obvious idiocy can't be happening all the time.

We had people with prestige and stature as selectors back then Vengsarka, More etc. 

Ab aise aise l*nd fakeer selector bante hain jinke gharwale bhi nahi jaante ki ye kabhi cricketer the.

D Vengsarkar, Mohinder Amarnath or Jatin Paranjape 

Who do you think will be brave enough to take tough calls such as axing Dhoni from T20s or sending a team of young players for an ODI tournament ?

The players with better credentials as cricketer will be in better position to make a brave choice than novices who would rather play safe.

One thing is sure, Shaheen Afridi's career will take off from here as he will feast on the 'brittliest 'middle order in the world..The generous gentlemen,the fake ipl heroes,you just name them,they will gift their wickets to this kid and give him the needed confidence to announce his arrival..

Not sure about his international career, he has to prove himself. So far he only performed against some local players in PSL.

Agree, highly likely that the accomplished players turned selectors had a spine besides ethics rather than be yes men.

 

Edit: I just found the following thread and it seems even Vengsarkar can be a weirdo :hmmmm:

Dhoni had the guts to ask that. Kohli doesn't
