3rd T20 India Vs West Indies, at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai at 7.00 PM. on November 11.

Recommended Posts

India has rested several key players for the final match. Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav have been left out with an eye on the upcoming tour of Australia. This has opened the door for the return of seamer Siddarth Kaul, who made his T20I debut in June this year against Ireland and has played just two games for India.

 

The Windies continue to miss Andre Russell and Ashley Nurse who pulled out of the T20I series due to injuries.

 

Squads:

 

India: Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Shahbaz Nadeem and Siddarth Kaul

 

West Indies: Carlos Brathwaite (C), Fabian Allen, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Keemo Paul, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Oshane Thomas, Khary Pierre, Obed McCoy, Rovman Powell, Nicholas Pooran

 Khaleel Ahmed convinced his skipper to hand him the new ball in the second Twenty20 against the West Indies, says he thrives on responsibility and never lets pressure affect his performance.

Rohit went ahead of New Zealand’s Colin Munro, who has three tons to his name. Having taken the pole position in terms of three-figure scores, the Indian opener is now looking to get past another Kiwi and jump up to the top of the run-making tree.

The Mumbai batsman has 2203 runs to his name currently and needs to score 69 runs against the Windies in the last match of the series on Sunday at Chennai to get past Martin Guptill and become the leading run-getter in T20 internationals.

If Pant doesn't play as keeper today,then it is confirmed Rohit is out to destroy Pant's chances for  dhoni. 

What is coach, team management or selectors doing? Selectors should tell who will keep? I am sure none have cleared who is gonna keep also i doubt pant will play worldcup the way he is batting these days.

It is crucial that Yuzvendra Chahal gets back to his wicket taking ways. We need 3 consistent wicket taking bowlers in the World Cup in Bumrah,Chahal and Kuldeep. Chahal has looked lacklustre recently and the one difference i spotted is the speed and flight at which he is operating now. Both Chahal and Kuldeep were bowling as low as slow 70's in SA and flighting it up nicely and i remember chahal bowling as slow as 69 kph and tossing it up very high above the eyeline. Kuldeep has largely stuck to the same gameplan whereas Chahal bowls nothing slower than 80 kph these days and flights it less. And you can see the difference in results.

Who will listen to them  ?

That doesn't matter atleast when virat isn't captain they should make it clear or virat/coach should tell rohit who will be keeper. I don't think they have told him about it.

That is just a guess.  We don't know whose decision it is to make DK keep.

ur expecting virat to have clear vision 

ur expecting shastri to have his voice also have clear vision 

 

To much expectation

 

High chances rohit is following guidelines by kohli n selectos or else i cnt beileve jadeja was selected ahead of krunal in asia cup

If virat or shastri have in mind to play pant for 2019 worldcup then they should clear who will be wk? Rohit will go once Virat is back so his decision shouldn't matter.

Then who to expect from? Rohit or Dhoni? let's consider rohit want to finish pant's career so virat and shastri are dumb? if both think pant is backup wk for worldcup then they should make pant play as wk. It clearly don't matter if rohit wants to make or break career of pant. It will be Pant himself or Virat who will decide if he wants to make or break his career.

Why wud i assume rohit wants to finish pant career?

 

dnt expect from kohli

hvent u seen his confused state of mind regd no.4 already or dhawan n rohit in test cricket 

 

My point is why wud u expect from someone who hasnt shown any clarity of vision in their tenure

 

Shastri n kohli doesnt the FCK they are doing, hvent u undserstood till now...they themselves dnt knw what they want 

 

Look no far

Parthiv is backup keeper in SA...dropped from eng tour

DK is main keeper in ENG, after few games it pant

Now parthiv is again a backup keeper

 

 

Do u see any clarity from them............whats the point of expecting now

Anyways Kohli should have started to build team right after 2017 champions trophy loss. He is still unclear about who he wants in side but i expect Raydud to play in world cup now along with few Mandatory Trundlers.

Dhoni will be keeper in WC 19.  That has been made clear time and again.

 

But we don't really know who is behind team selections in this T20 series.

Doesn't really matter alot then. Pant will get his chance in t20s to keep. He already has workload of keeping in Tests. Right now he should focus to score runs and if he fails he should be dropped. I guess england manage bairstow & buttler same way by giving long format to bairstow and short to buttler.

for that u need a clear vision, kohli lacks it....which is very evident with indian team n even RCB

to his bad luck coach n selectors are champion foolish

thats also a clear plan with poor execution , if they have decided he will go 

make him play not sit at home, send him on A-tour or send clear guidelines play ranji 

 

at his age not playing more games is the worst thing u can do

Pant was in the last selected ODI squad and Karthick was dropped.  

 

That means, at this point, Pant is being considered as a backup keeper to Dhoni for WC 19.

 

What happens if Dhoni is injured  ?

 

Pant will have to keep without sufficient keeping practice in LOIs ...  or Karthick will have to be keeper batsman without sufficient batting practice in ODIs in the recent past.

 

Only plausible explanation is ... they want to play Pant as a specialist batsman in WC 19, and want him to get fielding practice as a normal fielder.

 

But he will play in place of whom  ?

Pant has disappointed the way he bats in LOIs. He looks complete hack and maybe that's why the called DK back in t20s to keep? At the moment i don't see pant as backup keeper if he is gonna perform this way. Any good team will work on him in wc. Dk might not be that bad option with all experience he has.

Not possible to make day to day decisions, like playing 11 selection, that way.

 

Also,  if India lose then it goes under the name of the stand-in captain. This is the 4th full LOI series Rohit is captaining and he has made his captaincy ambitions known.   He would try to choose the team that will help him achieve best results.

ODI potential has to be judged based on ODI performances. 

 

Pant has played just 2 innings coming in with only a few overs left.  Difficult to judge that way.

 

He looked unconvincing in his first 5 test innings too ...  then a 100+  and two 90+ scores in succession.

Haven't shown maturity that's required in odis and it's big risk of playing with such players. If he gets himself in great form he is someone who might actually win you wc but chances are very less. It depends i might risk him for Dhoni but if we are stucked with dhoni then pant won't get place in XI.

Consider in the politics too.
He's a guaranteed player in tests and I believe team management has made it Clear that Pant will be the keeper for now.
However ,LoIs are a much higher stake with bigger powerbrokers involved.
And he's propped up against Dhoni who has big influence with him as well as other people who has other agendas and doesn't want Pant to be there

He has to fight all those mental blocks too.. Now it is up-to him who will fight against the system to prove a point

But still it wud have been made clear to stand in captain that these are the players we are looking at and lets play them specially before WC 

Rohit can ask for some changes acc to situation but the key calls like playing rayudu, making DK keep wud have been decided by kohli 

 

We all saw evern during ganguly captaincy phase when dravid use to get games in between their wasnt much of change

but as soon he came captain his choices were extremely diff
