  1. Last time I checked he gave 8 runs in 2 balls out of 11. He got 2 wickets with half volleys...so he bowled 1 good ball? MSD and Yuvi are not a part of my fantasy team in 2017 if you have been following my posts but they are there because of no other alternative....just because they are washed up playing pandya is not an option to strengthen batting order....it is what it is...rather have a stronger bowling
  2. You really think that Bangladesh game was because of his talent or one of the greatest choke jobs of all time?
  3. This is my team Rohit Dhawan Virat Yuvi MSD Jadhav Jadeja Ashwin Bhuvi Shami Bumrah adding Pandya weakens the bowling line up more than it strengthens it. Bhuvi is a must in England and also add to his form with the ball...the other 2 pacers pick themselves pandya can come in for Jadeja/Ash in one of the games or in place of one of the pacers if we already qualified
  4. Allrounder has to be good in one department and no fielding doesn't count.
  5. Throwing around stats can be done to prove any player is greater than any player...not comparing Pandya to either Bhuvi nor Ashwin nor Jadeja. just asking what he brings purely as a player right now. forget player a b or c...do you think Pandya is a reliable bat at a 80/5 situation? Or do you think he has proven himself to come off every time during slog overs? Do you think pandya can save anything <15 runs in the last over? Yes he he is a brilliant fielder but still not reliable or responsible enough in other areas can't go with him in crucial games yet till he earns it period. i will be honest I like what Pandya brings in terms of his natural abilites but do I trust and have faith in him-absolutely NOT
  6. The problem is selectors do try giving someone else a go like Pandey,Jadhav etc but when they fail or get injured they don't move ahead they again go back to players they have already tried
  7. From what I saw in IPL and I know it's not a benchmark ...pant even though he is a dasher didn't look comfortable in the slog overs when he had to hit from ball 1 but looked a million bucks in the top 3 again surprisingly trying to attack from ball 1.
  8. Can Krunal Pandya be tried as a middle order bat who can bowl? Has shown great temperament in tough situations with the bat.
  9. Sad that our middle order options have to be Karthik or Raina
  10. If that was a benchmark so did Pant and he clearly has a lot more upside than Karthik. to be fair Uthappa deserved more of a shot as he has got comparatively less opportunities than Karthik.but neither uthappa nor Karthik should be picked any more as we have some exciting emerging talent out there.
  11. Karthik is the greatest con man in Indian cricket...how the hell this guy convinces selectors for one more shot is beyond me and that too a batsman when there is enough talent pool out there...if he was a fast bowler atleast that would have had some logic but how does he keep coming back
  12. Pandya has done nothing to deserve a spot in crucial games...right now at best he can be played in dead rubbers and bilaterals till he gets confident enough to start firing in either batting/bowling. There is a good chance he will leave us a 10 man team...good striker,can bowl 140k doesn't automatically translate to great performer
