You can't treat India A games for such. Point of India A tours is to test next batch, likes of Iyer, Gill, Rajpoot etc.

In regds to 4 day games 

 

I wud have loved if rahul was made to play these games but i think he ll be on national duty 

Mayank, Shaw, Gill, Nair, vihari, Shankar shud play these games for sure..........do not for the love of god play pujara n rahane . 

Pant is playing these games as told by selectors

Rajpoot, Aniket, Avesh shud be rewarded for their ranji perfomances

Hope the squad is like this 

 

Mayank , Shaw, gill, Nair, vihari, shankar, pant , Gowtham, gopal, siraj , Rajpoot, Aniket, Avesh , Iyer, (some back up opener), dube

Should prepare a greentop for 4-day games. Siraj, Rajpoot, Avesh/Mavi should play. Dravid should really look at developing defensive game of Mavi, Avesh etc with the bat. 15-20 runs from the bowlers has more or less become the standard now. Especially Mavi, as he has the potential to average 25-30 with the bat.

 

I was really keen on seeing Shreyas Gopal in ODIs as a back up of Chahal as he can bat as well. David Willey really contributed with the bat for England at no.8. Our tail in ODIs seems a bit too long. If Gopal bowls well, he will be an upgrade on Chahal in terms of batting.

None of the experienced Test players should be playing this. No chance to Rahane please.

 

Pick only those youngsters who have played few internationals, else purely non-India players.

 

My 15 for 4 day matches will be - Mayank, Priyank Panchal, Shreyas Iyer, Shubman Gill, Karun Nair, Rinku Singh, Vijay Shankar, Pant (wk), Rajpoot, Avesh Khan, Aniket Choudhary, Shivam Mavi, Mayank Markande, K Gowtham, Shahbaz Nadeem

 

Have added the name of 21 year middle order batsman from UP Rinku Singh bats at 6-7 for UP and has in last two seasons scored close to 1400 runs@68.

Easwaran's 180  not out, chasing 322 runs in the 4th innings,  speaks volumes about his temperament.  And he has been a consistent performer too.

 

I would love to have temperamentally strong batters in the team.

 

Saini is match fit ...  but returning from injury and not looking a 100% yet.  Not in great form either.  He needs to play a couple of more FC and pick wickets.

Even chief selector is talking about Easwaran ...

So, he is in contention

Ishan Kishan (C & wk), Rituraj Gaekwad, Anmolpreet Singh, Deepak Hooda, Rajat Pattidar, Ricky Bhui, Himmat Singh, Mayank Markande, Jayant Yadav, Pappu Roy, Pankaj Jaiswal, Tushar Deshpande, Navdeep Saini.

poor selection IMO. not sure why patidar, hooda, himmat are there. would rather have seen likes of rinku singh, jonty sidhu, and priyam garg.

Probably they are local to where the game is being played?  Usually BP XI doesn't necessarily have the best players, spreads the opportunity to face touring sides a bit.

perhaps you're right - I didn't look up the location. in the past, BP XI was quite strong, sometimes even stronger than a proper "A" team. this one feels more uneven. bowling is also iffy with deshpande (who breaks down often) and jaiswal (trundler). since the priority is not high, maybe they just threw together a random collection of players.

Keep in mind that Eng Lions will play a bunch of games.  Its BCCI's job to spread the opportunity around a bit, especially when hosting such games that don't matter as much.  Sometimes a young guy who doesn't necessarily deserve a game at that point plays against quality tourists and has a wake-up call about what he needs to do.  And besides, when India "A" goes on tour, or even our national team, host boards often give us warm-up games with really soft club level teams.  No need to do Eng a favor by giving them best in class opposition for all the games.  Doubt they did that when India "A" toured England.

Good to see the name of Tushar Deshpande. He is a very good upcoming talent and needs to be groomed properly. Thank god they didn't pick Dhawal Kulkarni.

Now hope Avesh and Deshapande makes it to India A team as well along with Nathu Singh. These three bowling together in a match will be a some sight.

UP is playing QF's, so, Rinku and Priyam wont be available.  Sidhu, it was first season, so isnt there.  Patidar has a list A average of 44 with an SR of 103.  Himmat has a list A average of 63

wont call Jaiswal a trundler. He bowls at a zippy pace.

    Rinku & Garg playing QF for UP. How they can be in BP X1.  ? Only those not playing QF were to be selected for BP

After watching Shivam Mavi bowl yesterday in Ranji QF,  it is clear that he is ready for the  India-A team for the Unofficial tests.

 

The temperament and ability that he showed while setting up a top international batsman like Pujara, and dismissing him eventually,  was awesome.

 

In the olden days,  express bowlers of all countries usually used to be wayward during their early years. But Mavi was putting such a high percentage of deliveries in the right areas while moving the ball at high pace.  This is so commendable.  Perhaps a result of playing quite a few U19 tests under the guidance of Dravid and Mhambrey.

 

He maybe a young bowler but not a rookie.

 

Special talents need to fast tracked ... the selectors have done a good job regarding this aspect as far as Pant, Shaw and Gill are concerned.   Now, it is their time to do the same regarding Mavi   (  and Nagarkoti when fit  ).

Well Nagarkoti when fit has to prove himself all over again. This seems to be a career threatening injury for Nagarkoti spanning a really long long time. He has to build himself up to the right skills and match fitness all over again. Good wishes to Mavi and Nagarkoti.

maybe rahul chahar is not on the same level as far as being a special talent is concerned (I think he may be just as good), but given our lack of test leggies, he should be playing in the A-team.

Yes.  He is in my preferred team in an earlier post in this thread.

@Vijy... we need to include only those bowlers who have a realistic chance of representing India in the near future in that particular format ... and are preferrably in form.

 

For tests --

 

Rahul Chahar can definitely be the backup wrist spinner.  Probably has some batting ability too.

 

Nadeem the backup left arm orthodox.

 

Gowtham,  a decent backup for Ashwin.  An off spinner in form who can bat somewhat.

 

Rajpoot, the tall, accurate fast medium backup for Ishant.

 

Avesh and Mavi ... genuine fast bowlers in great wicket taking form ... backups for genuine fast bowlers Bumrah and Shami.

 

And Warrier ... a bouncy fast medium bowler who is in top form too.

 

There is no point wasting spots on dibbly dobblies like Deepak Chahar  (  was picked for the Unofficial test series in NZ   ).   Will he or should he play for India in tests in the near future  ?

all of them are good choices. however we need to identify a better offie for the future - gowtham is the best of the meagre pickings in this category (e.g. rasool & saxena are too old).

Ricky bhui is in every squad... 

Does he know influential people?

 

Not sure, if his domestic performances are good enough to warrant a place consistently in every squad...

 

Happy to see new faces ... himmat Singh, gaiwad, R Chahar etc

 

Seriously, we need to get over likes of Kaul, Takur, D. Chahar ....
