India A vs Bangaldesh- Squad

Recommended Posts

The selection panel of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced a 14-member squad India A squad led by Abhinav Mukund to take on Bangladesh in the two-day warm-up game ahead of Bangladesh's historic one-off Test match against India.

The squad features some of the top players from the recently-concluded Ranji Trophy season and fringe Indian cricketers. The 27-year old Mukund, who was part of the Indian team for the tour to West Indies and England in 2011, has been out of favour of the national selectors for more than five years. However, he scored 849 runs in 14 innings this season, including four tons and three half centuries, to make a strong statement for himself.

While the likes of Shreyas Iyer, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, Jayant Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav and Shahbaz Nadeem have been regulars in the India A side lately, the likes of Priyank Panchal, CV Milind, Nitin Saini, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan and Ishank Jaggi have been picked on the basis of their good form in domestic cricket.

Nadeem has collected over 100 wickets across the last two seasons of Ranji Trophy, finishing as the highest wicket-taker on both occasions. However, he hasn't received a national call-up as yet. Kuldeep Yadav, on the other hand, was a rare exception of a player who went on to play in the Indian Premier League before making his first-class debut. The chinaman has remained one of the most prolific wicket-takers in the last three seasons. He had a superb run in the Duleep trophy late last year, but couldn't do much playing on flat tracks during the Ranji Trophy season. He returned with an average of close of 30 with the ball, but played a couple of good knocks with the bat lower down the order.

Hardik Pandya and Jayant Yadav have made a smooth transition to international cricket and have contributed well with both bat and ball. While Pandya has only managed to play limited-overs cricket at the highest level so far, Jayant has also proved his mettle in the Test series against England.

The two-day warm-up tie is set to be played at the Gymkhana Ground in Secunderabad on February 5-6, 2017.

 

India A Squad: Abhinav Mukund, Priyank Panchal, Shreyas Iyer, Ishank Jaggi, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan (wk), Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Aniket Choudhary, CV Milind, Nitin Saini.

:cheer:finally a good team. clear indication that team management is looking for a left armer.

would have liked to see prasanth chopra, nathu and ankit rajput but selectors can only pick that much players.

is jaggi a test match quality batsman?

Yes, finally selectors have picked up a good team alas but it's just a two day game so, Aniket, Chama, Vijay, Chama good look to bowling, looks like they might have been instructed by Dravid or else would not expect them to pick a decent team, all tours after Australia shall be overseas test so we need to work to find right combo, among batters think Mukund, Pant should be in test squad regardless.

I hope Mukund and Pant score tons of runs in this game. If these two score, they will create lot of problems for Kumble and Kohli and selectors. I want that problem to happen. Vijay-Rahul need to be kept aware that they can not let it go lose. Vijay came back well against England but post all the away tours, he has gone into a shell, and Rahul too does the same and often gets injured too.

 

Mukund scoring runs will just raise the bar and make it more competitive for players fighting for the opening spot. It will be a good headache to have.

 

Also, Pant scoring a good ton will help him a lot in this time of his career where he could potentially get picked in the champions trophy, even though it is a totally different format. Also he might become the first choice replacement if Saha gets injured or if he looks like getting dropped in the middle of Australian series.

Here is a Youtube video of  Chama Milind  bowling 3 years ago in the U-19 World Cup when he impressed us.  He is on the taller side and looks sharp.  Good aggressive run-up, action and very good speeds for a 19 year old.  Lots of deliveries between 135 k and 140 k.  I hope that he has added pace instead of slowing down.

Why is Kishan the keeper, and not R. Pant ?

Because when a team is listed you can have any number of bowlers, batters or allrounders but only one keeper.

On a serious note Pant will be batting for his place in India side and both might keep, but Pant will be bowling seam, he is a decent pacer, started as a bowler then took up batting , he knows only way to dislodge Dhoni will be to bat, bowl and keep and maybe then the selectors will not be blindsided by a has been who cannot play the modern ODI or T20 format with any success

Saw Chama Milind bowl in the SMA trophy today.

 

He could not touch 131 k even in a T20 game where he had to bowl just 4 overs a day.

 

He has slowed down a lot  from the pacer we saw 2 years back

 

Disappointing !

I agree about Chama Milind but also want to share that a lot of times 2020 isn't where some of the pacers can bowl fast because every decent pace bowler starts bowling faster in his 2nd over as by the end of his first over, he is fully sweating and is in the rhythm and warmed up a bit. In twenty20, for strategic reasons, pacers, by the time they are fully warmed up, they end up being take off by the captain. It sometimes sucks but their remaining 3 overs are used in 2 different spells. This is the worst part of 2020 as bowlers, when they start to find pace and rhythmn, are taken off. Sometimes you got to let some bowlers bowl full spell, or 3 overs on trot or keep their one over for later, especially when you have decent back up bowlers to bowl in the death.

That happens with some pacers.   I often wonder why it does not happen with more.

 

In case of Chama, I think someone from ICF, perhaps Rkt, reported  some time back that he was bowling around 127 k  in a Ranji match last season too.

So is that good a squad . Yes we know have loads of batsman and spinners 

 

but where the strategy on picking faster bowlers . To develop and look at?

 

That has been the biggest weak area of this new selection committee.

 

Aniket Chaudhary is a good pick though.    He was bowling with pace, bounce and movement last season.  Hopefully, he has not slowed down.

So the perennial Indian attitude and cultural problem with importance of fast bowlers and how to develop and groom continues ?

If Nathu Singh and Basil Thampi were Pakistani pacers, they would be playing for their A team by now and maybe Nathu would have played a couple of ODIs even.

But atleast he is tall and will get good bounce as opposed to short trundlers like Vinay Kumar.

Hopefully Nathu singh and Thampi top the bowling charts because thats what the selectors generally look at.

They sure do.....and it is not the ideal way to pick good fast bowlers.

 

As far as I know, lots of top fast bowlers in the world have not topped the wicket-takers' list in their respective domestic cricket circuits before getting selected for their countries.

But he was trying to bowl fast, bending his back, putting a lot of effort. Something isn't going right with his action. He will again bowl quicker if he can get that right.

He looked to me a bowler who could bowl 138 to 142 k earlier, lets hope he regains his bowling form, as he has potential.

Warrier to me also with a bit of progress be good, has good runup, action and pace wise I have seen him bowl 140.

R Kiran reminded me of young Srinath, he has a lot of potential, needs to put some muscles, gain a bit more pace and rest is good.

Was still generating good bounce yesterday. However, he did not look like trying too hard yesterday, could be some back pain, may be. If you see his previous videos, his run up from yesterday and action looked like he was not running hard as before. May be some pain or niggle.

Yep his action seems completely different from 3 years ago not as smooth.
