What does selectors see in Axar patel that he is always in reckoning for Indian team or playing these A games. They have left Washington Sundar today to accomodate him. 

Both are average ... doesn't matter...

Washington Sundar isn't average. He has talent to succeed at the top but for that he has to work hard and get regular opportunities. He is far better hitter than Axar who can't seem to even clear the in field. Moreover an offie and a leggie in the team would have made more sense.

He is so called alrounder. Sundar should have played. Has more potential.

This Gaikwad boy looks enetrprising . Superb play vs spin so far.

Definitely looks more confident than Gill ATM... Seems to be very confident playing away from his body..

how does kishen go in XI and pant on bench 

I feel Kishan is a better keeper and better suited for 50 overs, as a batsman, than Pant. Pant is a better test/T20 batsman.

No kishen is not a better keeper....seen him a lot in domestic in last 2 yrs....his keeping is not gr8

Pant is a better batsman all together then kishen .......

I trust you, as I am just going by list A batting stats and what others have said about Kishan's keeping. Never watched him play.

Gaikwad a confident player... MSD never gave him a shot at CSK.... wonder what aould have happened if he had opened instead of Biriyani...

They selected Gaikwad this season only , biryani didnt open for Csk for all games...he failed n faf opened

Looks like the senior team score card... Openers set it up... Middle and late order fail...  Similarities in selection kinda throws a spot light on the overall selection process.... 

 

Out national selection committee should reflect the intended team composition ( in a ideal world). 

1. An Opener

2. Wiki

3. Spinner

4. All rounder. 

5. Pacer. 

 

So if the captain of the team in wiki, the chief selection should be wiki selector. 

 

They look at the player pool by function rather than region...

Watched Saini nd khaleel bowling... very encouraging signs with bhuvi being innocuous nd trundling nd with shami's deplorable death bowling credentials.. good to have two pacers in reckoning who were making west Indian batsmen hog nd hop around.  Saini's pace is intimidating..good bounce.. nd he seems to have worked on his yorker as well.. sans a good yorker he was being carted around in ipl.. khaleel off late was giving signs that he has slowed down... Now he is getting into his mattel.. he is more about seam than swing.. he beats both edge of the bat... Needs to do this on regular basis..with express pace...  nd this will bode well for indian cricket going into future.

We need to lower our expectation. They will get hammered in death overs along the way. Let's just take it in our chin and hope they will tighten up their death bowling further. 

Real test is against better power hitters.

Saini's yorker to Dowrich is one for the ages. To make a good batsman look like a tailender is something to be proud about. Khaleel and Sainai are surely the finds of this tour. The hostility in their bowling is really awesome to watch for a viewer. But we can be sure they won't be given chances as Indian team management will be looking to give more overs to Bhuvi and Shami as they 'need confidence back' after the world cup :facepalm::whack3:

 

India A's batting has been thoroughly deplorable though. Apart from Gaekwad and Gill, none of the other batsmen look the part to step up to Indian team. Watching Manish Pandey can be made an official punishment for the most heinous crimes. Vihari looks alright. Iyer will not come good even if chances are given to him. But I can safely bet both Iyer and Pandey will be selected in the Indian squad so that Ravi Bombay Shastri and Virat Basket case Kohli can be satisfied. :wall:
