Good to see Rahul finally getting to bat for sometime. Hope this is the much needed turning point in his form. Outside the top 3, he is still our best bet for LOIs.

Unless he scored a 500, there is no way smacking FC teams in the next 2 months will get him back into WC mix. His ship has sailed. His best hope is to cash every chance he gets from now to IPL and then have a stellar FC season next season.Only way for him.

 

Other option is if god forbid one  of Dhawan or Rohit get injured but even then I think someone like Shaw or Aggarwal should get a chance next instead of going back to Rahul.

I get the feeling that selectors will consult Dravid for his opinion. If he gives the green signal with some runs behind him, he will surely get back into contention.

Rahane hogged a spot in the A team on the A tour to NZ, Rahane hogged the slot of a younger batsman in the LOI A series vs Eng Lions and now this. How much practice does he need before the selectors decide he is not good enough for the WC. Imagine scoring 900+ runs and not even getting to play for ROI.

Watched first session. Mayank looked so much in control from ball one. He is going to be a boss in Indian conditions.

 

If Rahane belonged to a smaller less influential state, he'd probably by in some sort of low level management position at a local bank by now. Here he is, guaranteed pick in test XI and almost on the verge of making the world cup squad.

Really? He hasn’t reached the highs he was expected to but this is outrageous.

 

Before making his India debut, Rahane had almost 5000 runs@65+. Was an outstanding talent, couldn’t have scored those runs, majority of them at home, without being good vs spinners. That he has had a steep downfall in last two years has been most painful to watch. A guy who should have been in top 3 batsmen globally performing like an average batsman and unable to work out the technical deficiencies.

He is going thru a bad phase...

Pls remember that his avg outside Asia is better than sub-continent (at one point in his career)

He is one the better batsmen i have seen who played for India...

Pls show some respect.

He will bounce back....

But he should limited to test matches and should be allowed to play ODI's

Making him play all formats messed up his mind and technique

You sir are a retard, Rahane averaged 60 n was the most prolific batsmen before he made debut.yes he is not an ideal T20 or Odi bat , the same people who were sprouting **** about Pujara. Yes selections were biased and based on regions , caste n religion before.Also because on higher class people n people in bigger cities could afford n excel in cricket those days among other things.

 

Selections have been more on merit these days as selectors can't hide their bias clearly now.What is scary these days is Management firms like Rhiti owned by Dhoni in the past n Sajdehs firm.Also undeservingly Dhoni being in the team for last 4 years is pathetic

Stop calling me your daddy you f-cking idiot. 

 

Career average of 40 for someone who plays half of his innings in sub-continent is pretty dismal.

Complete sh!t-stain in 2017 and 2018. That's not a poor patch, that's 1/3rd of his career. 2019 Sydney test - Same story.

 

Average 35 home and 45 away. Take out WI and BD and that away average also starts to look very average. Although can't see him doing much against present WI bowling attack either.

 

One meaningful inning per test series to hold onto his place in the side that's pretty much the story of his career. He has been shockingly poor as supposedly's team second best batsman.

 

Dhoni pretty much told the world that he has no place in limited over set-up 4 years ago and yet the chairman of selectors think he is good enough to be considered amongst top 15 limited overs players in the country.

Are you serious? You really think he should be allowed to play ODI's? There are 20 better batsmen available to selectors than him in limited overs format of the game.
