Your preferred squads for the WI test series and the test series in Australia

Recommended Posts

Test series vs WI

 

1. Shaw

2. New opener with good off-stump game

3. Pujara

4. Kohli

5. Vihari

6. Shankar

7. Pant

8. Jadeja

9. Kuldeep

10. Siraj

11. Saini

 

12. Rahul -- needs rest after looong England tour and Asia Cup.  Can play 2nd test.

13. Nair

14. Rajpoot

15. Shami

16. Gopal

 

--  Bumrah, Pandya and Ashwin need rest.  

-- Dhawan, Rahane, Karthick dropped

-- Ishant not good in Asia. There are better prospects than Shardul.

-- Need to try out Shankar as proper batsman who can bowl seam.

-- This series should be used to get ready for the Australia tour ... drop HTBs and TTFs and choose proper test prospects who have the game to succeed in Australia.

-- Will stick with 5 bowling options.

-- Siraj, Saini and Rajpoot should be tried out in actual test matches. Don't waste this chance.

-- New opener should have good off stump game and should be good against the bouncing ball.

 

 

 

 

Test series vs Australia Squad  ( vision as of today ... can be updated later )

 

 

1. Shaw

2. Rahul  

3. Pujara

4. Kohli

5. Vihari

6. Pant

7. Pandya / Shankar / Bhuvi

8. Jadeja

9.  Ishant

10. Siraj / Shami

11. Bumrah

 

 

 

12.New opener with good off-stump game

13. Nair

14. Shankar / Pandya

15. Shami / Siraj

16. Saini 

17. Bhuvi

18. Ashwin

 

--    I will choose 4 pacers and 1 spinner combo.  This is needed so that our fast bowlers can bowl shorter spells with high intensity on the flat Australian tracks.

--    Choice of 4th pacer cum batsman would depend on pitch type. Pandya on flat tracks ... Bhuvi or Shankar on seaming tracks.  Choice of Bhuvi or Shankar would depend on whether a better bowler is needed or a better batsmen.

--   This 11 has batting till 8.

--   Will choose Siraj in playing 11 if he impresses against the WI.   Otherwise Shami.

-- New opener should have good off stump game and should be good against the bouncing ball.

Lets not think about Aus tour as of now- form n fitness is not knwn 

For aus tour we shud mark down players and take them on Nz-A tour. Once we knw the schedule of that ....what player to select for that tour shud be discussed 1st

 

No.

 

Thinking about Australian tour squad should start from now.

 

There should be a clear idea about what is needed. Otherwise we will see HTBs and TTFs playing against WI and blocking the needed players for Australia.

 

Last minute adjustments can always be made.

Thinking yes , marking players yes

but selecting a final squad- No

 

u think KL n Pant will go if they fail against WI and what if Vijay piles on runs in this time ....he will knock the doors

What if rahane finds form in this time , the guy is importnat in overseas

 

Rather squad as of now we shud look at probables for Aus tour 

And a plan shud be made to analyse these players through WI series n NZ-A tour

Dont care about WI series.. should be used to try newbies

 

Team for Aus

 

1)Shaw/Mayank ( Might be a flop show like Pant but we desperately need backup openers

2)Rahul/Vijay ( Yes Vijay, who was unfairly dropped after Lords minefield when players like Rahane Dhawan and Rahul gets million chances)

3)Pujara

4)Kohli

5)Rahane/Rohit/Manish Pandey( Rohit just to put pressure on Rahane)

6)Vihari - No allrounder business. Batting is weak can't carry baggage like Pandya

7) DK/Pant ( Again DK unfairly dropped. Played decently in 1st test 2nd innings)

8) Ashwin ( Yes he *ed up in 4th test but even a half fit Ashwin was better than Jadeja in 5th test. Jadejas bowling was like a part timer

9) Ishant

10) Bumrah

11) Bhuvi/ Shami

the 2 tests vs WI and 4 tests vs Aus are the last two series of the 2010s. Some of the players are fading so it is probably the right time to start introducing players who can take the baton for 2020s .... Ideally, I do not want anyone above age 31 in the squad for these two series

This is our vision of the squad to Australia as of today and not the final squad.   We are not selectors.

This is what I am against.  Piling on runs where  ?   Should have no bearing on the squad selection for Australia as Vijay has shown that he is not mentally strong enough now to put up a fight on tough away tours.

 

43 minutes ago, Ankit_sharma03 said:

Rahane is not out of form. He is middling the ball well when he is batting.   He has lost his spetite for a fight on tough tours. 

 

We need players with fire n their bellies.

That will happen automatically.

 

Just give your vision as of today.  Update it as the actual selection date nears.

He is playing county and made a 50, their is domestic

the problem with him was his poor attitude which can be changed with a kick on back 

If we have to win in Aus we need to have experienced players......

 

SO have vijay on radar provided he keeps making runs in whatever chances

He is short of confidence, 

Also a glitch with him n rahul both who are getting squared up while defending 

 

One thing with vijay n rahane is that they have quality...so ill always have them on radar but now their back is against the wall and it shudnt be easy for them. 

Just now, express bowling said:

Agreed but that alone wnt be enough

Pandya showed fight and application but fell short on experience and more

 

At the end quality n experience is also needed

Experience is overrated.  Both tours to Sena this year were studded with experienced  batsmen.  And we faltered pathetically.  Inexperienced Vihari scored a 50 on debut.

 

Inexperienced Bumrah was the leader of the attack after 4 tests. While senior pacers could not take on that responsibility.

Yes, a few seniors are needed in the mix and in batting we have Kohli and Pujara for that.  And even Rahul.

Vihari and Shaw seem to have quality.  With Kohli, Pujara and Rahul ... it will be a nice mix of experience and youth.

For that i need to knw when is NZ-A tour happening coz i really wanna send some seniors on that tour

 

Assuming its after WI test series- Pujara, Rahane, Pandya, Shankar, Vihari, Nair, Shaw, Mayank, Saini, Siraj, Pant wud be on that flight 

and it shud be used as prep for Aus tour

 

Pujara n Rahane will greately benefit from spending some time with dravid. Dravid has gone through this phase and his company will help them. Also pandya needs to work on his batting in those conditions n shankar bowling effectiveness needs to assesed

 

Assuming It clashes with WI series - Then its a tough one, coz the better prep wud be NZ tour but Selectors will definitely go seniors in WI team . But i Hope we make good Helpful tracks for WI series and they have good pace attack....even though the diff wud be huge but i hope its a bit of test. Also i hope we cud play 3 seamers at home due to those conditions so we can test Siraj n Saini both may be with Umesh .

Pandya or Shankar will also enjoy bowling. 

 

  • Kohli shud be given rest even from Wi series , hopefully he gains some perspective to sitting back in peace. 
  • Bumrah shud be rested from whole series to 
  • Shami, bhuvi, Ishant can also skip Wi series and play a domestic before Aus tour to have some game time. Also their state shud bat them higher up the order in those games
  • Dont bring back ashwin unless he is fully healed 
  • Jadeja post WI test shud go back to domestic n his state shud bat him up the order so he keeps getting runs under his belt
  • In case WI series Clashes with NZ-A tour , will have to drop one of Pujara n Rahane .....may be ill take pujara on NZ-A tour coz m concerned about his game agianst pace n bounce. Rahane can play WI series be captain n bat at 3......him getting runs here might help his confidence as Subcontinet condition is like monkey on his back. 

Rest i hve ideas but it revolves around when BCCI plans NZ-A tour ( that is what wud be idle for Aus tour)

 

For Aus tour here are my probable

 

Openers- Rahul, Shaw, Mayank, Vijay (outside chance)

No. 3- Pujara, rahane or if both fails may be one among openers

No.4 - Kohli 

No. 5 - Rahane, Nair, Pujara, Vihari 

No. 6 - Pandya and shankar

WK- Pant/Saha/KS bharat 

Spinner- Ashwin , Jadeja , kuldeep (outside chance)

Pacers- Bumrah, Siraj, Shami, Bhuvi, Ishant, Saini, Umesh 

 

With time, few games, fitness and form ill keep chopping this down. Im not looking much outside this group as it be unrealistic thought knowing how selectors work. 3 ppl they ll consider -Rohit, karthik n dhawan ...i dnt wanna think about them

Below is the 11 that I would prefer:

 

  • Openers: Shaw and Rahul
  • Batsmen: Pujara, Kohli and Vihari, can bowl off-spin but needs to learn to utilize the rough areas
  • WK: Pant (Saha if available) 
  • AR: Pandya
  • Spinner / Pace Bowler: TBD based on conditions. If spinner, would prefer a mystery one 
  • Pace Bowlers: 3 from Bumrah, Shami, Saini, Ishant, Siraj, Yadav and Bhuvi 

 

Except Saha, everyone is less than 31 years of age. Shami's age is a question mark though .... The 11 has a nice mix of experienced players and new ones who can take up the responsibility in 2020s .... Pandya, who has the ability to bowl at 140+ and hit 100s,  could become a key player for Ind if handled properly. We have players who are consistent. Pandya's role would be to try to give Ind the momentum or snatch the initiative from the opposition, either through a good burst of support pace bowling or quick runs. His fielding is a bonus. Where our players drop catches, he can create chances. He would be more like a Swiss Army Knife  

 

PS Vs. WI, we would play 2 seamers + 2 spinners + AR

Lets not forget vihari had luck going his way and conditions were better (not taking anything away from him) . The way he was hooking i have my doubts about him to in aus , infact even about pant n pandya batting. So ill like to keep every option open

 

I count experience highly , youngster will bring inconsistency but yea we can say so has our senior player but m assuming both at their best who ll give me more benefits 

Now lets see if these seniors strike that max ability

Yes, a few seniors are needed in the mix and in batting we have Kohli and Pujara for that.  And even Rahul.  

Indian seamer do mostly well when they are young an inexp , its when they are filled up with to much info . So Ill hands down take Siraj over someone like Umesh 

 

Batsman n spinner i take expereince in the wings

Quality yes

Weakness to yes 

 

It was not that pujara didnt have quality but he to struggled in his 1st overseas cycle and Rahul also has a lot of quality he to is struggling. 

 

Pujara hasnt been gr8 either, so acc to me his place also shud be under question overseas. 

 

As of now im keeping all options open apart from the disasters ones.

I also wanna Add above

I wanna have Max data which includes games in WI, NZ-A, Aus practice game before deciding the final XI coz if u get ur 1st-11 wrong in 1st test ur 1-0 and then ur chasing. 

1st test is in Adelaide and thats kohli lucky ground , so i wud like if we get the best XI so atleast we can have a good Chance . 

 

So ill prefer waiting to see everything , coz in reallity their isnt much diff in players may be with exception of 2-3 . When the margin isnt that much lets see at time closes by

This will be my pace attack for Australian tour; Bumrah, Ishant, Shami, Umesh, Siraj and Kumar / Saini / Rajpoot

Spinners: Ashwin and Jadeja

WK: Pant and Saha

Openers: KL, Agarwal and Shaw

Middle-order: Pujara, Kohli, Rahane, Vihari, Nair

 

This could be the last tour for some of the players here depending on their performance. Namely; Ishant, Shami, Umesh, Ashwin, Saha, Pujara, Rahane. 

 

I would drop Dhawan, Karthik and Thakur permanently from the squad and send Pandya to play proper domestic cricket before choosing him again for the Test squad.

Shaw

Mayank

Pujara

Rahul

Nair

Vihari

Pant

Kuldeep 

Jadeja

Umesh

Siraj

Saini

Rajpoot

Bharat

Gill maybe?

 

I think Rahul deserves one last chance in the middle order. Between him and Nair whoever performs better can be our number 5 in Australia. Hopefully vihari performs with both bat and ball and can nail the no.6 spot . Pant at 7. Mayank deserves a go considering his Ranji performance last year and for the A team.

It wud be KS bharat not ishan kishen ( his keeping hasnt been gr8 neither he is on radar when it comes to test cricket)

We wnt take only one spinner specialy when 2 test are in Adelaide n Sydney 

 

Going with only four fast bowlers in 1st 11 - means they ll all have to bowl 20-25 overs a day , Nair n vihari are part timers spinner who wnt be of much use . U certainely dnt want that kind of workload on Bhuvi n bumrah who plays every format 

 

Also after a point it affects ur over rate which is not good for ur captain who is also our best batsman

Main thing is to identify gritty young batsmen with good off stump game and short ball game ... and play them against the WI.

 

Not the highest run scored in Ranji or A-team games ...  but the type batsmen above. Batsmen who are known for their grittiness and fighting ability.

Moeen Ali is not a frontline spinner, infact laughable you write his name in same sentence as Lyon. If Aus dont have a quality leggie , its their problem.Ind have a potential match winner in Kuldeep its high time he is played consistently.

Lyon has played 78 tests and Moeen  52 tests.  How many times have they contributed to winning causes with the ball  ... especially Moeen  ?

 

And how can you compare a rookie like Kuldeep ... who has played just 3 tests ... with veterans like Lyon and Moeen  ?

 

In 3 tests, Kuldeep has taken 4 fers  twice ... against Australia in Dharsmsala and in SL to help his team win. That Dharamsala innings was special as it was in the first innings on a green track.

 

And he is not an inaccurate bowler ... inaccurate bowlers don't have ERs of 4.8 in ODIs and 7.3 in T20Is.

 

Kuldeep will do much much better as a test bowler than Moeen Ali.

 

Your theory ...  of low in other skills but reasonably accurate simple spinners doing well in test cricket, is not correct.  Has never happened.

 

We need spinners who are both skilled and sufficiently accurate.

Both Rahul and Pant look good on the backfoot and are fluent cutters and pullers. Both have handled bouncer barrage by Stokes with confidence.

 

And Rahul is very good at defending well directed bouncers, making the ball drop to a stop near his feet by playing with a soft bottom hand.

 

And both Rahul and Pant will get confidence from playing a big innings each ... out of Asia in the 5th test in England.

 

This bodes well for the Australian tour, where tracks maybe flat but bouncy.  And the kookabura ball does not move a lot.

Get Shaw and Gill in.

 

Like Rishabh, both of them have capably handled the attack at FC and 'A' team level. Ideally Gill should have a season under his belt but sometimes it's OK to back a talent to come good.

 

Neither Pujara and Rahane have shown the maturity and consistency required of players with their experience. After Australia in the upcoming winter, we'd have a slew of home series which should prime pant, Shaw and Gill for overseas cycle later. If selectors don't act decisively, expect more hand wringing when we tour non subcontinental sides the next time.

Ishan Kishan is a superior cricketer compared to Bharat. It will be a bad decision if Bharat is selected over him. 

Australia themselves only pick one spinner in their test squads for home series, Nathan Lyon. Neither Ashwin or Jadeja are going to take wickets or score big runs down under. It's better to learn from Australia and select only 1 specialist spinner. 

Vihari can be the batting spin allrounder that the team needs down under. He can give us 10-15 tight overs of spin bowling when our 4 fastmen need a breather. 

We played 3 fast bowlers + Pandya in both South Africa & England. Kohli never got banned even once. I don't know where you are bringing this up from.

Have u seen Bharat ?? bat or keep???

Kishen keeping has been poor in recent domestic games

 

Thats coz they can call a backup anytime ....we have to fly him down from a diff continent

Home team always select one keeper but visiting 2.........coz flying down and settling down issue 

 

Vihari as ur spin bowling all rounder????? haha 

I hve seen sachin n sehwag bowl and they had far more talent with ball then vihari but they didnt become batting all rounder they were jst part timers. 

India men mere samjh men aata.....australia men maar padegi 

 

Coz pandya bowls as breather so he ll bowl around 10 overs....a main bowler will bowl 20 ( diff samjha )

So according to some people here, Mavi will make his Test debut before FC debut.

 

Saw young pacers Porel and Prasidh bowl in a recent FC match.  Both lack FC experience.

 

They became totally exhausted on day 2 and were bowling 10 kph slower than day 1 ,  became less accurate too and lost all intensity.

 

Playing atleast one full FC season if not more and a couple of A-team Unofficial test series is a must for all pace bowlers, if they have to play test cricket.

 

Big difference between bowling 10 overs a day and 16 to 22 overs for two days on the trot while fielding for 12 hours
