  • Anyone will do as he is not going to play . The idea is to have cover for injury. But i am pretty sure if that happens , India will go with 2 pacers + HP + 2 spinners rather then an uncertian 4th pacer. Thts is very sure to happen. 

        In fact selectors should gamble here and go for 3 pacers + HP in 15 . 

        Use that vacancy to have one middlle order impact player.

None...

We'll mostly go with three seamers for the WC.. and play only two in the XI most of the times...  they'll rotate Bhuvi, Shami and keep Bumrah as a certainty.

 

If Shankar makes it to the squad, then Pandya and Shankar are the other two fast/medium pace options we'll take

Ankit Rajpoot could have been the right choice after Khaleel regressed faster than Bullet train.

Regressed or wasn't good enough? We love to hype our bowlers based on domestic or A tours. But internationals are a different beast altogether. Maybe he wasn't ready at all just like Siraj.

Umesh or dare I say Thakur. He seems better than the other crap and can also slog a few 

Yeah. Ideally we don't need a fourth seamer. 

To cover for injuries, I still think Thakur is better than the other crappy ones.

    No One is ready in next level for One day stuff.  On flat pitch they just do not have enough skills to withstand when they are attacked. No one has the control to bowl 2 good yorkers in an over. (That applies to seniors too apart from Bhumra & to some extent BK)

One may bowl may be 3 overs well with new ball but later on he is just a bali ka bakra . 

However we may dislike , only kaul has little bit of skill to bowl with old ball among them . But overall he is also not good enough  .

There was stats in some other thread that Umesh gave more than 60 runs in ODIs 27% or more , the highest of any Indian pacers.

 

My best best is they should play Shardul Thakur to see how he shapes up. Also they should play Ishant in Aus ODIs an pick one of these two for WC.

No, he regressed because he changed his bowling style completely after Asia cup.  He is now trying to become a swing bowler following BK's foot steps forgetting what brought him in the team was his pace and hit the deck hard bowling.  The Khaleel we talked about was bowling 145KPH easily, hurrying the batsmen, bowling yorkers and deceptive slower balls in domestic cricket.

Hardik pandya. No point carrying a dead weight bowler for the sake of taking one .. I will take pandya and Vijay Shankar both for the tour. I don't not see how any of the above bowlers add value.

Why no public poll? :( Icf's obsession with Umesh will never end :rofl:

From the poll it is khaleel. 

Umesh is brainless with white ball. 

Siraj is umesh 2.0 

Chahar can't bowl 130 pies in England.

Maul is garbage. 

Shocker 'Naam hi kaafi hai' . :giggle:

But the real deserving bowler is Rajput. Or blood in youngsters like Mavi, nagarkoti etc.

Why not pick a rookie pacer like Nagarkoti or Mavi they have experience of playing in WC (Yea under 19, but still a wc) and will be a surprise package due to their pace and aggression, both are very good fielders and can hold bat. Not like they'll get to play all  matches, maybe one or two, but the experience will be massive.

Nagarkoti is undergoing rehab for a back injury, don't know when he will be back. Mavi has a lot of potential but is still a bit raw. Rajpoot is most promising among younger bowlers and should have been tried instead of Siraj.

Umesh Yadav and Siraj are the only fast bowlers. Otherslisted bowl almost below 140 kph apart from rare one.

 

Sadly Umesh yadav has been a failure in ODI. Siraj too has been pathetic in LOI. He cant even make RCB 11 in IPL in so many matches for RCB in last few years.

 

Saini is a proper fast bowler at this point of time . He is already there in abckup and can be tried.

A total of 11 people people in this forum who think - Sid Kaul (2) , Chahar (2), Shardul (2) , and khaleel (5) , either of them could be the fast bowler.

Going with 3 short fast bowlers has to be one of the dumbest decisions ever taken. Especially considering that shami can be injury prone and not bhuvi is not a reliable wicket taker. Even Ishant would've been acceptable over jadeja. A tall hit the deck seamer is absolutely necessary to somewhat try and stop the flow of runs if the going gets tough. Short , floaty bowlers won't stand a chance.

True. They do not ball fast at all apart from rare delivery.
