What was Karthik thinking?

Recommended Posts

Actuay Rohit cost us the game with his tuk tuk today. Too much Vada Pav in his belly is eventually going to huffing and puffingly make us lose more games in f20s. 50 overs he has time and can make up. For t20, vada pavs can cost us big time. He better cut on Vada Pavs.

Even in ODI he has to utilize the PP better, anyone still remember the WC semi against Aus? This guy just has one way to play & can't adapt when the ball is moving too much or the total is daunting!

Ya Vada Pav can’t be captaining India. We must look for a younger t20 captain and hand it over to may be Pant or someone in t20 after this 50 over world cup.

 

Let Kohli and Rohit play as regular players in t20.

WTF was he thinking, samne tail ender nhin tha 

Even after so many yrs he lacks match awareness n reliability 

16 ball 33. Clearly had Thala, Dhawan and Vada Pav contributed a bit we would have been all right and not needing to bat under crazy pressure.

DK played well but the discussion is about that call. I didnt say he played bad

 

those who failed failed

here the question is that call 

 

We are being harsh on even rohit- happens on days when u cnt get going.......doesnt make him less of a t20 batsman

Their is no better option for LOI captaincy then rohit as of now

Let others 1st even captain n show something

 

Every captain shud be given time to build his side, rohit is captaining a side trying some new ideas before Wc

I don't think it's as ridiculous as it seems.

 

Whether Karthik or Krunal, it was about hitting 2 sixes in the last 3 balls. Karthik may have felt he had slightly better chance than Krunal to do it. That single wouldn't have made a difference. It was more about taking a call about who has to face the last 3 deliveries. IMO it was the right call. Karthik is more capable to hit 6s than Krunal and even in this innings he was timing it better and more in control than Krunal.

Rohit is good, but he shouldn’t captain India in t20. He thinks too much or over thinks. Take it away from Kohli also who is not regularly playing t20 for India.

 

Just give to some you guy or once Rahul is back, we can give it to him too. 

 

Too early to worry about t20s and its really not a big deal for now but post 2019 wc, we must prepare for t20 wc and look to have a younger captain.

captaincy aint a joke that u give it to anyone. It worked with dhoni doesnt work every day and he was also a VC for a while and had a fixed spot in side

Rohit is a damn good LOI captain and shud be allowed to run team his way

That 2nd ball of the 20th over was crucial, a bit of error from Karthik. He shouldn't even have a thought of leaving the ball after making such a big move in the crease. That miss kind of broke the momentum of Karthik.

T20 is a joke format untill world cup comes anyway, no harm in trying others. Let Rohit play as best top order player in the world. . And slowly the younger captainc an transition into 50 over captian too for India and take it over from Virat.

Rohit is fine captain just that we are testing players for worldcup and key players are rested then it might look difficult. He did fine job in past when ever he got chance because he was able to play as he wanted. Kohli should better continue and let him manage team the way he wants for worldcup. I would actually be happy if we drop rohit (drop not rest) and tell him to be fit before worldcup.

Rohit has earned his captaincy 

Let these others even earn a spot , a captain needs to earn respect as well

Yes he should have attempted a shot. Krunal played and missed a few hence DK thought of taking the strike. Anyways lots of hitters. We still need 5/6 hitters to be ready after Kohli is back.  Sanju Samson. Kl Rahul. Mayank Agarwal ( he murders spin). Also K Gowtham. Ishan Kishan.

I thought it was pretty much deliberate half way through, he was just looking for singles. And once he decided to move on he couldn't and when you don't convert such ordinary starts, teams seldom wins.

You don’t earn anythin in t20 like I said, its still seen as joke of format and money making scheme ourside ipl and world t20. When world t20 comes we can get serious but for now series losses shouldn’t hurt fans. We should just look to find changes and one change is ee is that let younger guy takenover captaincy be so we can help that captain transition intonour 50 over captaincy down the line. 

 

Also, there is no consistency ever with the t20 squads if you notice like 50 over squds before,  every time some new dude might impress and make his way while also some top 50 over performer miht get into t20 squad even though he doesn’t fit.

 

For example, they kept picking Manish Pandey earlier for T20 :) while were dropping him for 50 where he fits better.

 

T20 seriously isn’t worth worrying about.

My answer about not worth worrying about comes from the way we are treatinf which is written in the same para above.

 

Its not worth worrying untill we fix and start picking a consistent squad.  This drama of randomly dropping and picking won’t work.

 

Pick guys and give them proper run. You see them for one game and throw them away even though you know t20s are rarely played. It even ends up costing them their place in 50 overs. Its almost like becomes a burden on their resume. Vijay Shankar was actually remembered by many posterss just for that innings uptill he played that gutsy knock the other day. People forgot he was picked for wrong format and is still a decent 50 over prospect. 

 

People make too much out of nothing from t20s and think failing their once means you can’t play at all. That mentality needs to change. Back the players properly in t20s just like you try to back them for 50 overs and t20s.

As much as you hate his denial of single i find something positive. HE designates himself as a finisher, backs himself to do the job. How many really can do that job with such self-confidence.  You gotta appreciate that.  

Exacy, the guy has done it before and he is senior and so wanted to take the pressure instead of throwing it on youngster. No big deal really.

Karthik's strike rate today was 206 and Krunal Pandya 200. Karthik also hit 4 sixers and Krunal Pandya 2. Sixers is what we needed at that point and as Karthik was hitting them more, it's not a bad move. Singles or 4's were not goign to win it.

Karthik has wider range of shots. HE can ramp, he can hook , pull , loft , play inside out. Whole gamut of shots. Tony wasted 4 precious balls

Without any doubt Karthik is a better batsman than Krunal Pandya. He also has a wide range of shots as compared to Krunal Pandya.

We are just not using the power play well. While chasing 212 we cant score 57 from 6 overs of power play. More runs should be scored there considering the restrictions in place as well as the target. The strike rate of Dhoni (5), Dahwan (125) and Sharma (118) are way below par in todays context.

Replace Dhoni with Kohli and we have a monster batting line up and Khaleel with Bumrah. Also remember t20 wc is in Australia. Big grounds.

Rohit shouldn't play t20I. He plays only one way though he is very much capable of playing at high SR from ball one. No one needs his hundreds in T20s. A quickfire 30 is much more worth. Selfish batsman. If he is to be played, play him in middle order where he would be forced to go after since ball one.
