The more I look at this team, the more I feel like Hasan Ali and Amir will knock them stumps out. 

Amir is lethal only in the first 3 to 4 overs. He can be handled well if we see off these overs ,by scoring ones and twos initially and the odd boundary.                      Hasan is better in the death overs. He seems to be the real threat.

Those 3-4 overs are enough to get out of form dahwan and couple of middle order batsmen out me thinks. Death over is a no worry for them cause our lower order sucks lol

How fast is this Khaleel fellow ?

 

Khaleel bowls 135 k to 148 k range in T20s.  

 

But don't know whether he can bowl at this pace in ODIs ... as he very young and still learning to bowl longer spells.

 

But he is a very bouncy bowler with a hostile bouncer... and keeps hitting the splice of the bat with good length balls.

 

He has been a genuine wicket taker and a good death bowler in A-team and domestic 50 over games.

Don't think you guys should be playing Pandya in the desert ... his bowling gonna get smashed ... BK too if there ain't no swing.

 

Pandya is the only lower-middle order big hitter we have got.

Chahal is a physical midget as well :cantstop:

Chahal has no place in odi this idiot should be restricted till t20. You don't like to have 2 bowlers who are prone to ball no balls at crucial juncture and we already have bumrah for that. Besides bumrah is taller faster and stronger than this scrony chusela thakela tharki batla.

Watching Aisa Cup 2018 is one of the things I am searching for last few weeks as I m in Laos and no channel is offering the live coverage. Thanks to an Edwin who guided me well with a simple article where guide how to watch Asia Cup 2018 live online anywhere. I feel it's my responsibility to share the same with you guys.

You are damn lucky. Most Indians wouldn't want to watch atleast 2 smashings against Pakistan.

It's really sad that we are stucked with trundlers like bhuvi and pandya. 

Pandya is not a trundler as he bowls at 140+ and plays as an AR, a middle to lower order big hitter :winky:

Yeah actually i agree he isn't trundler right now but trundlers can be more effective than him with ball. I really hope he improves and then he can be very important player for team but sadly it doesn't look he is much interested in cricket.

Our middle order is useless,hardly any guy who can accelerate in the middle order .best way is to send pandya at 4 against Pakistan and let him bat as many deliveries as possible,a set pandya is dangerous than any of our jokers in the middle order. 

Best Playing 11 

Dhawan 

Maggi 

Raul 

Pandya

Rayudu 

Kedar

Msd 

Bhuvi

Kuly

Khaleel 

Bums 

Kedar can bowl some spin

Since India loves throwback teams, I suggest:

 

Shastri (genunie A/R)

Srikkanth

Azharuddin (everyone loves a redemption story)

Viswanath 

Amarnath (A/R)

Dhoni (wk and pinch hitter)

Prabhakar (inspirational captain and A/R)

Undakat (infusion of youth and completes the spin quartet)

Bedi

Chandra

Shivlal Yadav (influence quota)

Well, There is more than just pace to his bowling. What I saw today,  He has ability to bowl different line, length, angle and from either side of stumps. He looked completely ready for Internationals. Someone should take him under his wings and train the skill like how to control seam and swing and also how to avoid injury.

We must improve him. This boy is complete package

His current pace and ability is just good enough to make it to playing 11.Too early to make call, but still, I will pick khaleel with a pace of 140k+ ahead of any other Indian bowler apart from Bhumrah.

It will be a failure on part of Team management if we screw the arms of this boy.

And they selected thakur for tests in England ahead of siraj . Bravo!

Based on yesterday I'd pick

 

Dhawan

Rohit

Rahul

Pandey

Jadhav(useless but the others are DK and Rayudu and he can bowl a bit someone does a shardul)

Pandya

Greybeard

Bumrah

Khaleel

Yadav

Chahal

 

Bhuvi doesn't seem to be good enough at the moment.

We should always try to include pacers who combine pace and bounce with skills.  That seems like an obvious course of action ( if such pacers are available )  but does not always happen.  

 

Support for known names, support for players playing for stronger IPL franchises from various sides,  confusing formats and choosing IPL performers in ODIs etc. keep messing up choice of pacers.

 

Pacers like Khaleel, Saini, Rajpoot and Prasidh should be picked in ODIs ahead of Kaul, Thakur, Umesh etc.  But we keep seeing these known names again and again.

 

Similarly, in test matches, Siraj, Saini and Rajpoot combine pace and bounce with skills but Shardul still getting picked ahead of them.

 

It is good to see Khaleel getting selected atleast ... he combines pace and bounce with a lot of skills and seems to have a good temperament ...  but will he be backed or thrown away if he fails a couple of times  ?  He needs to be backed to the hilt ...  Bumrah and Khaleel bowling in ODIs, will be a very dangerous pace attack for us.
