No need to rush back Bhuvi. Let him relax and with the Rhythm Shami is in, let him have a go again. He is bowling brilliantly. 

star sports showing he is fit and ready to go for next match so i think they will pick him if there is bit of swing available or maybe even without looking at conditions.

You don't want to drop a guy who has just taken a hattrick. I will first qualify for semi-final and then make any changes. Bhuvi also bowls shorter hit me balls rather than full balls when not recovered fully.

I would still not drop a bowler who just bowled a brilliant spell. If it was about choosing a batsman who is coming back and someone who score 60, then I might still replace the incoming batsman with someone who scored 60, but someone who bowled as good a spell as Shami did, he deserves to continue to play for next game or two.

 

Shami plays for me. Bhuvi needs to wait now. May be they can rest Bumrah somewhere to play Bhuvi or Shami both, but not right now, let India qualify for semis and then rest Bumrah may be against Toygers.

 

But for now, Bumrah and Shami.

I would rest Shami against Bangladesh and Srianka and bring him for Semi finals and finals. Shami is more prone to injury if we track their career so far. And a genuine wicket taker like him is required for the big games where just containing won't work as shown in CT2019 finals. Wickets are the key to win the game. Bhuvi recently has regressed as a death bowler. So not much degrade in death bowling.

Shami is rhythem bowler the more he plays the better he is. He just rested for many initial games now whats the need for rest. Bang n SL who will be playing at headingly their fav ground shudnt be taken lightly even if qualify

Over the years, I have had massive concerns about Shami's fitness, but he has raised the bar now. He has improved his fitness and managed to play full test series in England and has worked hard on the fitness and is less injury prone now. In fact, Bhuvi is the one who seem to get more injured now or been out due to niggles. 

 

But we do play now the next 3 games with less gaps unlike before where we had gap of 5-6 days between two games. So yes, we can surely rotate our bowlers.

Ideally....tony .

But that won't happen ...so one of the spinner or jadhav.

Dropping Kedar would weaken already non existent middle order. Dropping either of the spinners is also not good idea since Kuldeep has kept it quiet in middle overs and Chahal has been very good picking up wickets. Key to our success.

Bumrah bhuvi Shami would be difficult to score against....why not play them all..

Exactly, the extra batsman may not be needed in most games given our Top 3's safety first approach. Might as well play 5 front line bowlers and restrict teams to low scores.

There's no need for him frankly, even if it aids swing BK ahead of Shams isn't a bright option. The other option isn't one I'd like to see being exercised either!

Sadly there is no Dhawan in top 3 in remaining matches:bawling:...we can do this line-up against Wi or SL though

End of discussion. Don't rush in a recently injured bowler, since Shami is in rhythm give him a run now. Drop Bumrah for Bhuvi after a match or two because then our schedule will be hectic and we don't want any of our quicks to be gassed out.

I would pick Shami but when the Afghanis were trying to hit, Shami went for plenty. The wickets were more due to the pressure created by Bumrah at the other end than him getting them. Expected more from our premium bowler.

Last five overs anybody will get hit,Shami bowled 6 overs straight at death and did well.

Bowled a few deliveries with a stroll of 4-5 steps. Going by his history of slow recovery from injuries and taking good time to get his rhythm back, dropping Shami or Kuldeep for him will be insane.

 

Still think he is not fully match fit. I hope TM does not repeat the mistake of last year Eng tour’s final ODI.

It's not about getting hit, he was bowling right in the slot for hitting.

We should go with Shami,would have liked to go with three proper pacers rather than with just two

I know Kuldeep is blowing hot and cold,a red hot Kuldeep is a different beast altogether,but Shami too is in red hot form,he can add another dimension to our attack,but had it been on me i too would have struggled to keep Kuldeep out

No need to rush him back but against windies, bhuvi is a better bet with his style of bowling .

It's better if we rest bumrah for 1-2 matches later in the tournament after qualifying, we need a fresh bumrah for the KOs

You cant drop a guy who picked a hattrick the previous game. Shami all the way. Bhuvi should be the 5th bowler if at all played which I dont mind but that would be a big gamble. Such gambles can be taken against England who bat deep but has shown vulnerability if early wickets are taken. It comes at a cost of weakening an already weak middle order
