I am fed up with such statement and headlines. Its second time Kohli has made this 10% and half the player stuff.

 

You appreciate the youngster like Pant, Shaw,Gill.

But when it comes to playing them, they are not even warming the bench.

he is trying to say he is a young player. i was not 10% of him now i am something you know, Shubam is in that time of his career - he needs time etc. They would knowing something that we do not.

Well This might be a conspiracy theory but anybody with a functional cornea can see Shubman has better talent than that Rayudu.

There is still some ODIs left for WC , and if he gets chances in every game he will be much better than stop gap option rayudu.

When 2023 comes he will already be a good player with experience.

 

I am not saying this as a psycho fanbot but Kohli does have reasons to keep Gill hidden/benched.

That's why I made that good looking conment

He is the only new cricketer in recent times having rabid female fanbase(Also SRK/Arguably KJo backing ) .

Now if he debuts and does well , he will steal Kohli's thunder and get all those ads.

His Bollywood backing is also firm and the way KKR is promoting him, looks like he is part of the larger SRK branding.

 

This is why Pant gets in and out of the squads.

Because he threatens Dhoni.

Now he is getting chances because BCCI needs a credible replacement for Dhoni profitwise after retirement and also Because Kohli needs a boogeyman to threat Dadu.

I know Gill will evenyually find backers and Kohli will be forced to play him , but right now it is profitable to keep him back.

Kohli wants to be the spearhead of his brand and nothing else.

That's why he kinda sidelined KL when he was truly good.

He didn't want people to steal his thunder directly .

Good chance that Gill might replace Kohli at 3 for the remaining two ODIs.. If he does well, he'll get a chance to be the back up middle order batsman.. or probably even end up doing the role Kohli did in the 2011 WC..

 

Gill's WC chances are better than Pant's IMO.. With Dhoni and DK almost sure selections, they might go with Gill (if he does well) than a third wicketkeeper

I will believe it when it happens but this sounds like a consolation price for warming the bench thru out the tour.

 

When fossil returns for next match, India will most likely revert to Dhawan-Rohit-Raydudu-Fossil-DK-Jadhav-Hardik line up.

Kohli is lucky he played in an era where young talents got chance to play even though we had superstars filled in the batting unit .he certainly wouldn't have even made his debut by now had he been playing under himself and the current TM lol

The thread is up their with most pathetic in terms of repsonses from ICF

 

Kohli drafts and picks a tennager in to india squad.  Lavishes praise on him bascially saying he better then me.  And gets slaughtered by ICF for not backing him and not giving him a debut to him when he was 9 years old.  This forum has lost it

But Gill isn't even 5 % as lucky as kohli once was(when it comes to debut)

WTF.. how many 19-year-olds have made their debut for India in the last 10 years? Heck, even Kohli was older than Gill (albeit by a few months) when he made his debut..

Gill is on bench for 3 matches and there is so much wrist-slitting on icf..

This is such a usual comment.

 

Why can't he spice it up: Dhoni isn't even 10% the batsmen he was 

 

Or 

 

Rayudu will never be even 10% of what I currently am :biggrin:

Spice it up even more..

 

All the ICF'ers are not even 1% of what I am but pretend to know more than 1000% of what I know

The fact that kohli understood about Gill this late.. that too seeing him in nets.. speaks about how the system is.. so the onus is completely on the selectors while the TM just manages the players who get selected ?

We cant be so sure....

 

Kohli would have known this boy but never choose to spoke about him..

 

May be, he is the one who pushed for his inclusion.....We never know

Thanks for the gem icfers keep missing. I guess Kohli flew from England to select Hanuma Vihari in nets after seeing Karun Nair in English nets.

Also, Poor Kohli is left with no alternatives but to choose on yester years failures like DK, Rayudhu. Selectors specifically select players for bench purpose ony

You mean to say before Pant makes a odi debut to pressurize Thala, MSD will most likely select Gill to put Kohli in his place.

     Here you can't blame Kohli. I do not think they ever played together even in nets till this tour. VK might have only seen some highlights of some matches at the most of Gill. 

What i heard was in a WI test match recently , Gill was to meet india team on 4th day it seems but the match ended on 3rd day itself perhaps , so just met some support staff and had to return back. i saw that interview of his.

But in nets , they will be checking how  he plays for different kinds of bowling . 

They would have seen how he plays vs players like Shami , Bhuvi , Kulcha . Also he must have been given targets to get say 20 runs in 10-12 balls  etc.

Thats when you judge how the guy can cope up . And fitness and agility could be another thing VK would have checked .

Gill is not a competitor for Kohli's spot - rather what Kohli likely fears is that he will steal his fame endorsement wise.
I am not saying this as a fan -but someone who has insights in marketing industry

Cricketers aren't really selling well compared to o actors- Virat might have the most endorsements but his approval rating is lower than Ranbir's

Hardik -Rahul are not also doing as well as you thought - and I don't think they will ever recover from their negative image endorsement wise.

Gill is secretly backed up by Red Chillies who want to make him as their mascot in order to consolidate their fanbase .

lt is rumoured that SRK and Venky mysore have hired top Bollywood marketing gurus like Anirban Blah and Prabhat to brand his career.
Gill really doesn't have the negative image/dislikeability factor that currently plagues Kohli and his gang.
Only downside is he seems to have a bland personality - and time will tell if the initial hype goes straight to his marketing team's head and they go overboard on their duty .

People like Hardik , Pant doesn't threaten Kohli's image -rather they complement it.
But Gill might as well threaten his position - only because of his more solid bollywood backing and good looks (this kind of matters in endorsement world)

^ Thanks for media/corporate/fanbase view. My problem with Kohli is, He himself seem to be having too many fights.

RCB kid Sarfaraz: Kohli screwed him.

Kumble: Kohli screwed him

Gambhir: Kohli had a public spat

Rohit and Dhawan: Clearly ignore him

Current Indian team: No one seems to be talking to him

Many Ex-Players: Openly wait for a opportunity to criicise Kohli or wait for him to fail. Else they keep mum/neutral.

Chris Gayle: It was rumored that they werent best of buddies in RCB

 

Either Kohli is only person correct in the dressing room or he is simply not a person to be around. Some may say that he doesnt need to be nice person as his job is batting and captaincy, but clearly, cricket is a team sport. Team needs to respond to the call.
