  1. Proviso being you need a min of 5 from each Gavaskar Hayden Bradman Tendulkar Border (c) Gilchrist Kapil Dev Warne KUmble/Srinath depending on where Zaheer Khan McGrath
  2. Aside from Steyn, Akram, Marshall and Hadlee.... who are the other pacemen with "far superior stats overall"?

    Karthik or Jadhav at number 6 in ODIs?

    KJ is a "better" batsman, but Krunal more suited to no 6
  4. I was one of them, at least calling for Dhawan to be left out of the T20 team. Glad he proved me wrong

    All Rounders do not exist.

    Yes, fortunately. One ball or bad shot away from it being needed. What if it was needed, like on his debut vs WI..?

    How about neither - Krunal Pandya

    I do not think an allrounder has to be good enough to make the XI on one skill - only ATG all rounders were able to do that. The Pandyas are good batsmen. They maybe not as good as some frontline specialist batsmen - but the fact that they can chip in with overs and potentially wickets means that they make up for it.

    That was not his fault, that is the fault of the selectors and management who decided on the final XI and its (im)balance. He is an AR not a bowler, not someone who should be picked to bowl a full quota of overs/ We needed a 6th bowling option. Sadly there arent any apart from Hardik...Shankar and Hooda spring to mind but are they good enough...? Dont know if Sundar is a good enough bat

    We lacked a 6th bowler today; Krunal is not someone who should be bowling full quota of overs. Both Pandya bros should play ODIs and T20Is , that will give us the balance we need. Hardik instead of Pant or Kartik , and that would probably be my ODI XI too. I know Krunal didnt turn up with the bat either but Playing 5 out and out bowlers weakens the batting significantly and its not like specialist bowlers- Khaleel -we exempt from being hammered.

  10. So the person who tweeted this was saj_pakpassion ... was it him who sent the question? If so, he aint Indian anyway. And he got the exact response he was looking for
  11. There is room for 3 openers, if it is a choice between Vijay and Mayank- I would agree with Vijay being picked given his experience in Oz and hopefully he is back in form on the back of his county stint. He should find the pace and bounce there less challenging the movement in England. Harsh on Mayank but hard to disagree
  12. Team for three T20I match series against Windies announced Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar, KL Rahul, DK, Manish, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem Good- Krunal finally Bad Umesh, Manish, Not sure about shabaz in short formats ahead of say Gowtham or Gopal. Already have two slow left armers

  14. I agree with this. GG and Kohli were great at 3 and 4 as a combo, GG gets overlooked a bit but he played some great LOI knocks- key figure in some major wins for India
  15. Ganguly at 4? Wouldn't him at 3 and VK at 4 be better? Or even Azhar or Dravid at 4... Kuldeep is a interesting one; see you gone on Bumrah too. I do think it's a bit early to have him instead of Sri in an all time team

    Perfect background scores

    Alot of the Marvel films have good scores. Alan Silvestris stuff on the first Captain America film is great, Iron Man films have some very good themes,

    Are celebs really role-models?

    If you class sportspeople as celebs, then maybe. The best Sports people are pretty admirable for their work ethic and determination to be the best, maximise their potential. But I dont think anyone classes actors as role models

    Your preferred ODI squad for WI series?

    Rohit Dhawan Rahul Virat Hardik Pant Krunal Bhuvneshwar Kuldeep Jasprit YUzvendra Iyer, Manish, Axar, Khaleel

    In a parallel universe Zaman was out for 3 ct MSD b Bumrah

    Solving India’s Middle Order Crisis

    No 6th bowling option. Drop Dhoni for Krunal Pandya and it would be a good team
  22. Sooda

    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
  23. Sooda

    AHahahahahahaahahahahahaahahahahaahaha

    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?
  25. Sooda

    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.
