    DK > Pant

    because of his incredible pace (or lack thereof). should have had dhawal kulkarni, unadcutter, vinny kumar and s aravind.
  2. he picks some wkts up, but he doesn't have the versatility of SRT who never took his bowling seriously. I recall him turning the ball as much as some of the big spinners of his time.
  3. sensational form. hopefully, he will sustain it for some more time.

    Risabh Pant - Second Impression

    to stroke their fragile egos and make them feel like kings of the universe while they are scoring runs against Sri Lankas and Bangladeshs.

    Risabh Pant - Second Impression

    Just goes on to prove that sample size is too small for making any statements either way. SRT started ODI career with 2 consecutive ducks.

    Deodhar Trophy 2018

    but I recall him being completely clueless against off spin - dunno whether it was this match or an earlier one. it was surprising since I've seen him tonk left-arm spinners quite well.

    Deodhar Trophy 2018

    he just needs to regulate (but not eliminate) that exaggerated trigger movement, and his tendency to back away against every bowler. I think shaw is finding his groove as a List A player - he was quite ordinary last season, but has looked much better this season (regd List A matches).

    samarth also looked good, apart from that dropped catch. shami had a terrible off-day.
  9. it was quite strange IMO. In T20s, I regard Root as a slightly better all-round player than KW or Smith.

    Justice for Rahul Campaign (JFRC)

    he ought to, but will he?

    X1 for the next match

    I doubt if even Rohit can score fast from ball 1. Coming in at 4 could mean that there are about 10 overs left, and instant acceleration will be important. otherwise seems like a good lineup.

    X1 for the next match

    Dhawan, Rohit, Rahul (wk), Raina, Shankar, Pant, Hooda, Sundar, Axar (or Chahal depending on conditions), Unadcutter, Siraj Team bats till 9 (Axar) and has 7 bowling options (Raina, Shankar, Hooda, Sundar, Axar, Cutter, Siraj). Siraj had 2 bad games, but I feel it was more due to nervousness than lack of talent. DK has not done anything wrong but we need to look beyond him for future players (who'll be around for a long time span). Although Pant has looked unconvincing he needs a longer rope IMO.

    Vijay Shankar performance watch

    From the current squad: Dhawan, Rohit, Rahul, Raina, Shankar, Pant (wk), Hooda, Sundar, Axar/Chahal, Unadcutter, Siraj Team bats till 9 (Axar) and has 7 bowling options (Raina, Shankar, Hooda, Sundar, Axar/Chahal, Cutter, Siraj). Siraj had 2 bad games, but I feel it was more due to nervousness than lack of talent. DK has not done anything wrong but we need to look beyond him for future players (who'll be around for a long time span). Although Pant has looked unconvincing he needs a longer rope IMO.

    Time to get Jadeja back in the ODI mix

    N-O. He is struggling to pick wkts even in List A matches. His batting seems to have improved but he is not a 100+ SR batsman which is what Ind needs in the lower order. Moreover, fielding restrictions have made it very difficult for finger spinners. We should persist with Kul-Cha with other wrist spinners like Gopal (doing well) and the rookie Chahar as backups.
  15. it's not that they are increasing them per se, but more about enforcing them strictly.
  16. Australia, Scandinavia (preferably Norway) would be good. Canada is okay too. Ireland would have been a nice choice but it's not what it used to be.
  17. Naturally, home wins in SC usually involve spinners (ash-jaddu, kumble-bhajji, murali). however, it's not always true that spinners are more effective match winners than pacers. murali had 19 MOMs in 133 tests (1 MOM every 7 tests). Warne had 1 MOM every 8.5 Tests. Ambrose (pace bowler) had 1 MOM every 7 Tests and Akram had 1 MOM every 6.1 Tests. Hadlee, Imran Khan, Akram, Amby and Marshall also have very good stats in terms of Player-of-Series although all of them are pacers. In terms of consistency, spinners may be more effective (in terms of wkts per match) but genuine match-winning performances are distributed between pacers and spinners.

    Vijay Shankar performance watch

    in this series, hooda should have played a lot more games. and it was strange that krunal p was not even in consideration.
  19. root's ODI batting has improved a great deal (perhaps at the expense of his Test batting, esp conversion to 100s). He is now fulfilling Trott's role in ODIs, except that he is more versatile and scores faster.
  20. Lol... of course you're right. To answer your original question, I think Sundar has been selected as a specialist bowler which is a pity since he can bat (although perhaps too slow by T20 standards).

    hooda should also play. our bowling was so ordinary that even selecting a part-timer like hooda in place of unadcutter would make sense.
  22. wickets per match is just indicative of the fact that the bowler contributed a lot of overs. pace bowlers usually bowl lesser overs than spinners and hence typically have lower wkts per match (Murali, Warne, Kumble, Ashwin, Yasir Shah, Jaddu all have over 4.5 wkts per match). better metric is to look at SR and avg in Tests. Akram was deadly between 90 to 97 (7 years). Prior to that, he didn't bowl many overs and was quite raw. Afterwards, his diabetes kicked in big time and performance dropped. During these 7 yrs, he picked up 5 wkts per match at an avg of 20. If we consider only wkts per match, people like Mehidy Hasan (Bangladeshs), MDK Perera (SL) and Abdur Rehman (Pak) would be considered high quality since they have 4 wkts per match (or very close to it) even though their averages range between 30 to 35+ approximately.

    DK > Pant

    Yes, that was a good knock. there was some chance of the tail being rolled over quickly but he and dravid played well.

    NZ's allrounders are all power hitters, not just Corey Anderson. There's Anderson, Neesham, Grandhomme and Munro. Shankar seems to be more of a "proper" batsman (whatever that means).
