    well done India, this is a top class international ODI team and to have your second string turn them over says something about our bench strength

    Pant failing isn’t a big deal. Lot of ATP level tennis players who are in top 75 in the world  go back to challenger level tennis which is one level below ATP pro circuit and they also get beaten there not some times but most times in first or second round. So a batsman in cricket getting out early in a domestic or first class game has a higher probability of failing since it takes just one bad shot or one good ball.
    Pant is the future.

    how did he not rake up numbers? He raked numbers so was picked for India, now seems out of form. Doesn't mean he did not score runs before. yes, he is not scoring now but he should have been played regularly when he was in form. Shaw will be more of a test player. Even Pant scored a 50 against touring England side last year that too just in 35 balls.    Did you say the same thing about him then.  Shaw too failed in one days against NZ A.

    Well track and field will be a problem he will wait for the last lap to accelerate...usually that's the way it works but he will be so far behind lunging in the other laps that it will be too late.100m is like T20 format he will suck at it anyways

    Shami takes care of himself. He is injured most of the times to reduce his workload.

    maniac reacted to express bowling in Indian all-rounders nowadays - playing for India and upcoming ones   
    Most teams nowadays are trying to play multiple allrounders.  This policy is effective if such players deserve to be in the team based purely on atleast one of the disciplines, batting, bowling or keeping .... and the other discipline is additive. Ashwin and Jadeja are good examples of this ... they would be in our test team while playing in Asia, even if they could not bat.  Mitchell Marsh in test matches is an ideal example of someone who can neither bat nor bowl and should not have played 21 tests, but has done so as a " potential all-rounder ". This is the type which should be discouraged and Ashwin-type allrounders encouraged.
     
    We have quite a few all-rounders already playing for India or doing well in FC and List A.
     
     
    TESTs
     
    Batting-allrounders for tests
     
    Hardik Pandya - pacer /  big-hitter
     
    New -
     
    Vijay Shankar - pacer /  big-hitter
    Washington Sundar - spinner
     
     
    Bowling-allrounders for tests
     
    Ashwin - spinner
    Jadeja - spinner /  big-hitter
    Jayant Yadav - spinner
     
    New -
     
    Axar - spinner
    Gowtham - spinner /  big-hitter
    Karn - spinner
    Nagarkoti - pacer
     
    Bowlers who can bat somewhat - tests
     
    Bhuvi - pacer
     
     
    LOIs
     
    Batting-allrounders for LOIs
     
    Hardik Pandya - pacer /  big-hitter
     
    New -
     
    Shankar - pacer /  big-hitter
    Krunal - spinner /  big-hitter
    Washington Sundar - spinner /  big-hitter
    Gowtham - spinner /  big-hitter
     
     
    Bowling-allrounders for LOIs
     
    Axar - spinner /  big-hitter
    Jadeja - spinner
     
    New -
     
    Karn - spinner
    Nagarkoti - pacer
     
     
    Bowlers who can bat somewhat - LOIs
     
    Bhuvi - pacer
    Shardul - pacer  /  big-hitter
     
     
    Batsman who can bowl somewhat - LOIs
     
    Kedar - spinner
     
     
    Getting a couple of new batting-allrounders in our LOI teams, like Shankar, Krunal, Gowtham ..... would lend a lot of balance to our team.
     
    Please discuss what you know about the new all-rounders.

    maniac got a reaction from Laaloo in India A vs New Zealand A, 5th unofficial ODI   
    Let me ask you this-Do you think Dhoni is done and over the hill ?
    if you think he is not than welcome to the ICF Delusuonal Dhoni fangirl club but if you think he is done then.....
     
    There is no alternative or a certain player is not ready is a lame excuse....how can one ever say if a player is ready or not unless you try them? Saying there is no alternative is unfair and an insult to all the other domestic hopefuls and cricketers who toil hard and all the young cricketers out there.
     
    If Indian cricket can move on with Kapil,Gavaskar,Sachin,Fab 5, Zak,Kumble,Srinath's retirement pretty sure it can Handle Dhoni too.

    maniac got a reaction from Gollum in IND ODI Sqaud for NZ series announced : Rahul Shami and Umesh out   
    Whatta joke...you drop a guy who has a huge upside to be your next Kohli for Dinesh fkin Karthik
     
    Shami dropped,so one of Bumrah or Bhuvi are injured you go with Thakur(I am ok with a new guy being given a shot) .....Umesh I am ok if he is dropped from LOIs.
     
    This selection committee is terrible
     
    I have a feeling Gambhir etc are going to get farewells as well a la Nehra.
     
    Kohli is looking like a rubber stamp captain by the day...he is being bullied by Shastri,Dhoni,selectors and everyone under the sun.

    Agenda....seriously....some people laughing and enjoying the failure of a 19 year old who was deemed to have a huge potential doesn't count for Agenda? well I think I need to re look up the definition of agenda. It is not about Dhoni because at this point I am ok with one of these guys replacing Dhoni
