Recommended Posts

11 who played here minus shardull = 10

 

Add Vijay, vihari, bumrah, ishant, bhuvi, shami

 

Ideally rahane and Rahul will be dropped for another middle order bat and mayank Agarwal but I don't see that happening 

I understand that Vijay had a good series in Aus last time. But I am not aware of his recent form. Has he done well recently in county/domestics?  .... Ideally, you want to take players based on current form

rohit sharma is our best best for us in non-swinging , fast and bouncy surface , sadly :(( 

If we rotate/play batsmen as per conditions (like we do for the bowlers), Rohit can be back in contention :dontknow:

Combination: 5 batmen + 1 WK + 1 AR + 1 Spinner + 3 Pace Bowlers ....

 

la mia squadra perferita: 

  • Openers: Shaw and Agarwal
  • Batsmen and WKs: Pujara (can open if required), Kohli, Gill, Pant and Vihari .... and a WK - Saha if fit 
  • Pace Bowlers: Bumrah, Shami, Siraj, Yadav, Ishant .... and Pandya (AR)
  • Spinners, 2 from: Ashwin, Jadeja and Kuldeep (chances of playing 2 spinners would probably be at Sydney) 

 

fielding in a few youngsters in this series  .... youngsters (less than 10 tests or under 25) = orange

The squad picks itself. India will likely pick 17 players like they did against England.

 

Batsmen: Shaw, Rahul, Kohli, Pujara, Rahane

 

Reserves: Vihari, Mayank*

 

Spin: Ashwin, Jadeja, Kuldeep

 

All-rounder:  Pandya, Bhuvi

 

Fast bowlers: Shami, Bumrah, Ishant, Umesh.

 

Keeper: Pant

 

*Mayank may get edged out by Vijay of selectors prefer bit of experience in Australian playing conditions.

1.  Shaw  

2.  Rahul

 

3.  Pujara

4.  Kohli

5.  Rahane /  Vihari

6.  Pant   (  batsman keeper  )

 

7.  Pandya /  Bhuvi  (  pacer allrounder )

8.  Jadeja / Ashwin ( spinner allrounder )

 

9.  Shami  /  Umesh  ( skiddy 2nd pacer )

10. Ishant  ( bouncy 3rd pacer )

11. Bumrah   (  Wicket taking and bouncy pacer )

 

 

Reserves --

 

12. Mayank  (  opener  )

13. Vihari  /  Rahane   ( middle order )

 

14. Kuldeep   (  wrist spinner )

15. Ashwin / Jadeja  ( spinner allrounder )

 

16. Bhuvi  /  Pandya   ( pacer allrounder )

17. Umesh  /  Shami ( skiddy 2nd pacer )

18. Siraj  (  Wicket taking pacer  )

 

 

 

--   This team has batting till 8.

--   There are 4 pace bowling options in the 11 which is needed in Australia.

--   6 specialist batsmen are there in the 11 ...  which people want.

--   There is a spinner in the 11.

--   I  will pick a 18 member squad.

--   I will take Siraj as the extra pacer and give him a game later if we have issues with taking wickets  ... as he is a genuine wicket taker.

--  This pace attack has variety. Combination of bouncy and skiddy pacers.

--  If Bhuvi plays, I will bat him at 8 ... and Jadeja at 7.

 

--  Ultimately, we have to include a genuine wicket taker like Siraj in the playing 11.  Bumrah and Siraj in tandem can be a great wicket taking force.

Bumrah and Siraj in tandem is a mouth watering prospect atm.

We need wicket taking pacers in all conditions.

 

Lost a great opportunity to get Siraj's feet wet in this series against WI.

I will also pick the same squad but will add a backup keeper for pant
