    Kedhar Jadhav :player without X factor

    Hope he comes in at 3 or 4 against Afg give him a decent amount of time to bat

    I'd wait until India win the tournament before celebrating too much. We all know what happened in the CT

    Dropping Chahal would be idiocy.

    Lets wait and see, he has been economical in one match against Bang where the pitch helped. Can he do it on a cold, wet Tuesday night at Stoke?

    Dropping Chahal would be idiocy.

    In the Asia cup the pitches being what they are, that bowling lineup can work, even with only two seamers. But we are building for England WC. Where Hardik has to play tbh, as 3rd or 4th seamer. Bhuvneshwar, Jasprit , Khaleel and Kuldeep can make up the rest Its not a choice between Pandya and Chahal, if anything its Jadeja and Chahal. I wish that had picked Krunal this was a great opportunity wasted.
  5. Tho tbf to RJ it was his first ltd overs match in a while
  6. Krunal took 1/34 in 6 ovs and scored 85 Vs Mumbai two days ago Jadeja took 0/62 and scored 14 Vs UP What has RJ done in ltd overs cricket to earn a recall? Even if his bowling proves effective in this tournament, what does it tell us about how / if India are planning for the future?
  7. Manjrekar only saying that because he wants his fellow Mumbaiite Iyer in . He didn't want Manish either
  8. I agree. I wish he was in the squad in the first place ( I would have had him instead of Kedar) It'll mean the 11 has only two pace bowlers but pitches being what they are it may not matter; we could play four different types of spin options
  9. I think that will leave the bowling a bit light. Kedar is useful in Asia but in England the pitches will not be slow and low and he could get hammered.
  10. Shikar, Rohit, KL, Virat, Dinesh, Hardik, Krunal, Bhuv, Kuldeep, Yuz, Jasprit KL at 3 and VK at 4 would be my first choice. My 2nd choice is VK at 3 and Manish at 4 - i still think Manish can come good if invested in; he hasnt grabbed the oppos that have come his way but has been shuffled around a bit too. 3rd choice is Iyer at 4 Agree with that, maybe he can adapt to no 4 but for that he needed to have been given a long enough run of chances. The problem is none of the options - KL, Manish, Dinesh, Iyer - have been given a long consistent run. I think Rahane should not even be on consideration (but im sure he will be)

    Rank MI films

    3, simply because of the menace that Seymour Hoffman got to the villain role. Puts other baddies into shade. Hunt seems to be in genuine jeopardy in that film, unlike the others.
  12. Nothing quite tells you a side values the art of fast bowling more than picking six seamers for a series on the traditionally placid pitches of the UAE http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/24670336/10-things-watch-asia-cup Khaleel's strength lies in extracting bounce even on docile surfaces - which could come in handy in the Asia Cup in Dubai and Abu Dhabi - and he's got pace too. http://www.espn.co.uk/cricket/story/_/id/24542109/khaleel-ahmed-rapid-rise-tennis-ball-tonk-india-odi-squad Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the two venues for the 2018 edition and it's a given we will see runs. A lot of them. https://www.firstpost.com/firstcricket/sports-news/asia-cup-2018-from-rohit-sharma-to-imam-ul-haq-five-batsmen-to-look-forward-to-in-upcoming-tournament-5172161.html Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat first on a Dubai track expected to contain plenty of runs. http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8532/report/1153243/bangladesh-vs-sri-lanka-1st-match-group-b-asia-cup-2018-19
  13. So far, the bowling has been good and the batting underperforming, the batting needed strenghtening. I get that Vihari could have replaced some body- but who? He can not open and Rahane is coming off a half century.

    Former India pacer R P Singh retires

    I was at Trent bridge in 2007 when him and Zaheer had the England batsmen in knots. He got KP with a Jaffa. Vaughan scored a good century that day. At his best he was a very good bowler. He should have made more of it . For a brief period it looked like he had good pace bowling stocks in that time with him, Sree Santh, Zaheer, Munaf I think even Irfan was still going in ODIs. Didn't last long
