Ganguly surprised not to see Gill n Rahane in ODI squad, he also wants to have more players playing all formats

Rahane in ODIs... my gawd.. these idiots have no clue about cricket, do they? They're living in some parallel world.

I wonder how can someone make such idiotic statement about Rahane,whose strike rate(50 over) these days is in 60s/70s.

Lol & some people wanted him as coach.  Ideally Mike Hesson will be good for us & he will get rid of some deadwoods.  But knowing BCCI they will go for decent Tom Moody. 

Hero worshippers, cheerleaders should not be picked as coach. There will be bias obviously. Indian players all of them have some level of bias.

Rahane :phehe:

 

Bechare MSK prasad ko kya gaali deni , saala yaha to Indian cricket ke legends ka dimaag bhi kharab hai 

 

 

 

 

 

 

honestly if Rahane had played, we would have probably won the WC. he would have fitted in the no 4 well, even after Dhawan exit.

I agree , but no one expected the pitches we got to play on during WC . 

As it is, our team is very one-dimensional. They can just bat or bowl. Not both. We cannot look for batsmen who will do well only in certain conditions. That will be even more counter-productive. As an ODI batsman, batsmen have to be adaptable.  There are zero excuses for top-order collapsing against the same NZ bowling attack 4 out of the last 4 encounters (including warm-up). 4 times in a row INdian top order imploded against NZ in such a short span of time. This is much deeper than picking the right team.

wish they had brought him in as cover for no 4 and made rahul move up - definitely we would have made it to finals and the final game as it turned out - India would have routed Eng in that pitch.

Rahane lol, that guy is always the supposed best player for difficult conditions. Rahane doesn't even deserve to be in the test team.

Time has come for us to go more aggressive on format wise specialists. Except Kohli and Bumrah, nobody should play all three formats regularly. 

Maybe Pant, Gill and Shaw in future. 

I'd still like to try Kishan and Samson in limited overs to see how they fare.

      Its  a misconception. Just see his record in one dayers when pitch had something. Never won even 1 match with his batting.!

What is it with former players having their pet projects and always backing certain players for selection?

 

Going back to Rahane who has done nothing of note in limited over cricket is delusional. Rahane, Rayudu, Pandey etc who can tell the difference anymore.

 

Build for the future, it's not difficult.

Dada has lost it completely .   It probably  started with his tussel with Greg. Never really recovered from that episode.  (Both on and off the field). Neither as a player nor as an expert/commentator.

Where are all Ganguly fans lol ? He supports youngsters lol ? He shouldn't be near Indian team. Ganguly is also very negative I remember him belittling jadeja for his 3 triple hundreds. 

Tbf to dada, if he had his way and knowing his style of building the team ,Rahane would have fit in the team as a top order consolidator.

Rahane looks bad in this current Indian batting set up which is top heavy and light in the middle and lower order hitting ,hence we cant afford another slow scorer with the top 3 already going slow .

 

But imagine a team where you have rahane opening or coming at 4 and having a swashbuckling pant as the opener or quick scorers like Rana/pandya/abhishek Sharma in the middle order !

Now rahane doesn't look a misfit in this team tbh .

This is the way i think ganguly thinks about the odi team .during his days also he had a swashbuckling opener in viru ,then an explosive yuvi in the middle ,so it gave a bit of a room for slow players like himself and dravid to nudge around .

 

In this current set up and the way rat builds his side ,rahane is a strict No!!

Gill is a far better talent to trust upon.

When was the last time he made a contribution to win a match ? He had a chance to win a test in England but threw his wicket. Even in South Africa he did same.

agree with Sourav that we need multi format players. Sehwag,Gambhir ,Sourav,SRT,Dravid,Dhoni played both formats with good-great longevity .The formula should to select talents  atleast at around 22  years of age, select a lot of lefties too, select a few grinders, give them  a fair run of  matches  and then select a core 12 batsmen for all conditions,match situations . How ever can't agree with Sourav's choice of Rahane   because he had his chances and instead of improving he regressed a lot by the time he played AUS series.

I am not sure how can Dada Say Rahane in needed in ODI squad. Has not he watched him ODI already?? :facepalm:

When he was Captain, he was pushing for so many new faces and youngsters in the team but not sure he want washed up players again to be tried again now instead of trying out new players??

ganguly must be on something (i.e., weed) to suggest rahane again, but he (along with many others) is absolutely right in pushing for gill. it's not like our cupboard is overflowing with middle order options. would like to see iyer, gill and mayank get extended runs. pant is better suited for top order but for now he will also have to play in middle order.
