Since both players are on their way home and won’t be in India’s ODI squad for now, who should be their replacements?

These are my choices: 

 

OUT - KL Rahul & Hardik Pandya 

IN - Mayank Agarwal & Vijay Shankar

not shankar. anyone but him. maybe krunal. dubey has zero "A" team experience.

Shankar was really impressive vs NZ in A series and Pant surely.

Mayank who is an opener will replace Rahul who was a backup opener.  Pandya will either be replaced by a seamer alrounder which we dont have, i don't count Shankar as a seam alrounder, as he is a batsman who can bowl part-time, or by a fast bowler as we only have 4 seamers in the squad.  I would like them to develop former U19 Darshan Nalkande as a fast bowling alrounder who is known for his big hitting and can bowl quite quick for a 20 year old.

how? Chahal averages 25 in ODIs, Kuldeep 20.  together, they are as good as any.

Chahal has not been in a good form recently, having averaged 60+ in England. I think his better days are behind him as batsmen have started to pick him better.

For Rahul - Agarwal or Gill

For Hardik - not a lot of seam all-round options, but can select Shivam Dube, you never know might turn out be an inspiring selection, there is always an opportunity in adversity

 

But to take such decisions you gotta have gumption, which clearly nobody has in the selection process, so expect the likes of Pandey for Rahul and may be Chahar for Pandya

I would fly in Avesh Khan for Hardik Pandya as Shankar is rubbish as a Seam all rounder and I am not sure how good dubey is as a  seam all rounder. Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer are the best batsman around for KL Rahul.

But chances of Chahar ,Axar are more considering the selection committee

why axar...do you think we need an army of spinners when jaddu,chahal and Kuldeep are there and that small dwarf batsman spinner is also there..

yes, shankar is a part-time bowler. his List A bowling stats flatter him. saw him recently as well - his bowling is nausea-inducing.

Last time I saw Vijay shankar's bowling ..I was convinced that stuart fatty bunny would be a better bowler at least...hardik is at a much higher level to shankar.

Not sure he will be played as he is not exactly an all rounder so a wrong selection..bhuvi is a better bowling all rounder than him.

 

Let's see.

Chahar should have been selected atleast he is a trundler who can bat a bit.

This guy is not even a trundler.
