  1. True. His ODI form was amazing. Big contrast to all our legends - SRT, Dravid, Yuvi, etc.

    The ICC Women's World Cup | England & Wales 2017

    Pity Lanning missed out on some easy runs, but Aus top 4 are looking very solid - Mooney, Bolton, Lanning and Perry (2 ATGs in here). Not very convinced by their middle order though.

    Why can't dhoni just be axed

    I want to see Dhoni being given a much longer run. But, since I like Saha (in Test), I should point out that his sample size in ODIs is very small. Until Dhoni scored his wonderful debut 100 against Pakistani, he had a very poor start to ODI career as well. Again, just to reiterate, I am not advocating dropping Dhoni in place of Saha (or anyone else, except perhaps QDK).
  4. Sounds like an interesting story there :) I agree that 6 is a hard position for a youngster to come in and perform right away. For now, Panther at 5 and Jadhav at 6 seems more realistic.
  5. Jaddu should not bat, IMO, anywhere lower than 6 (or 7 at most). He lacks the ball-striking ability of Pandya or the innovative strokeplay of Jadhav. If he plays in the team, he should come it at 6/7.
  6. I hope Pant will prove to be good enough to play at 5 or 6. Seems to me that Jadhav is being wasted at 6; would prefer to see him bat at 5. Dhoni has to play at 4 and no lower.

    A fast bowler India might have had

    I only saw Harvinder's few ODI matches and he was definitely not as quick as Ishant (I'm assuming that you are referring to an Ishant who can bowl 140+ steadily). I agree that he was better at swinging - his main issue was a lack of control. Deserved more opportunities given that his ODI record was still very good when he was discarded.
  8. Jaddu lacks firepower to score at 110-120 SR in closing overs. Given how bad Yuvi is doing, and if they want to retain Jaddu, they should just swap the two. Dhoni at 4, Jadhav at 5, and Jaddu at 6, with Pandya at 7.
  9. SRT also played only 10 matches sporadically. Hence, in my opinion, the biggest two "regular" culprits since 2011 WC are Yuvi and Rahane in that order with Yuvi leading by a big margin; Raina has scored at the required modern SR of 100, but I wish he was a bit more consistent.
  10. Also won in WI in 2006, who was much better than now (although that's not saying much).
  11. One can say this even more for Yuvi.

    Saha's LOI record is very good (even more so than his FC record).

    WTF is this series???

    A totally useless series.

    Your test squad for Sri Lanka tour?

    They will not play Pandya at 6, even if he plays though.
  15. Yes, he has a great record against minnows but some of our current players would probably do poorly even against minnows (like WI)
  16. Since 2011 WC, using Statsguru I found: Kohli: Avg 59 @ SR 95 (outstanding) "Rohit" Sharma: Avg 51 @ SR 88 (excellent stats) Dhawan: Avg 45 @ SR 91 (excellent) Dhoni: Avg 55 @ SR 92 (outstanding, but has been declining since last 2-3 years) Raina: Avg 35 @ SR 98 (his SR is very good, but could be more consistent) Rahane: Avg 34 @ SR 80 (below par, both avg and SR wise) Sir Jaddu: Avg 32 @ SR 89 The worst 2 offenders are: Yuvi: Avg 26 @ SR 90 Tendu: Avg 31 @ SR 81 (but we know that he faded away almost completely once the 2011 WC ended) Clearly shows that one could just swap Jaddu for Yuvi.

    Jadeja/Ashwin In ODI after World Cup 2015 - Poor

    Jaddu is even more useless in T20s since he can't slog (at all) and his containment is average and wkt taking is almost nil. Hence, in T20s he becomes almost exclusively a specialist fielder who bowls 3 tight-ish overs. Would prefer to see Chahal, Kuldeep ahead of him.

    He must be touching 200 kmph now.
  19. It is probably lower than Sir's average during this period.
  20. Would be nice to see him given a chance.
  21. That's true. Mishra is slightly worse (or better?) than Ashwin in terms of fielding/batting (in ODIs) but he is a much more effective bowler. Off the top of my head, he is probably the only Indian bowler in our ODI history with 50+ wickets at an average <24-25.
  22. This is possibly true (apart from Atul Sharma - the only superfast bowler around).
