  1. Would keep all 3 , DK should not have been dropped in the first place was coming into his own as a finisher. Could argue about jadeja spot but he's back up all rounder too, and Shankar has played himself in as batsman who can bowl a bit.

    Rejects XI

    Strong team... Id probably get Krunal in for Ashwin. I know people here dont like Manish Pandey but he is one of the best List A batsmen and IMO was not given a long and fair enough run- although he didnt grab his chances too. Agarwal Gill Vihari (instead of Shaw because he can bowl) Manish (c) Iyer Rishab Krunal Gopal Rajpoot Saini Krishna

    Shreyas Gopal

    Should be in the next T20I squad
  4. Rohit should be on the list, should be averaging high 40's in tests

    Ideal squad for the WC19

    Cant send two debutant openers to the WC man, not least because Rohit and Dhawan are world class.

    Ideal squad for the WC19

    Rohit Sharma Shikar Dhawan KL Rahul Virat Kohli Vijay Shankar Hardik Pandya Rishab Pant Bhuvneshwar Kumar Kuldeep Yadav M Shami J Bumrah Dinesh Kartik, Ankit Rajpoot, Yuz Chahal, K Jadhav

    Shreyas Iyer: "I am just waiting for my chance."

    How do you know, he has only played 6 ODIs. Should at least be givena run has earned it

    Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2019

    Suryakumar Yadav should be playing T20is . Especially if he has a good IPL as he did last season. Nice to see Iyer up his SR too. Next T20I XV: Rahul, Rohit, Suryakumar, Virat, Hardik, Rishabh, Krunal, Gopal, B Kumar, Kuldeep, Jasprit Ankit, Iyer, Kishan, Gowtham

    Team for World Cup 2019

    11 : Rohit, Shikar, Virat, MSD, Shankar, Kedar, Hardik, Kuldeep, Shami, Jasprit, Chahal Bench : Bhuvneshwar, Jadeja, Rahul, DK I wouldnt mind a 5 to 7 of... Shankar, Hardik, Dinesh... that gives it muscle in the closing stages of an innings. But not sure we can trust Shankar and Hardik with 10 ovs between them
  10. Sooda

    Team is sabotaged by bad selections.

    Cant because those guys are openers or top order bats, Rayudu was got in to solve the no 4 issue Iyer, Pandey and Rahul should have all bee tried instead of AR in the middle order. Given a long run at 4 each
  11. Sooda

    With 5 ODIs to go before the WC

    Rohit, Shikar, KL, Virat, Shankar, Hardik, Dinesh, Bhuvneshwar, Kuldeep, Chahal, Jasprit
  12. REally? Its increasingly become pointless to have Sky Sports. A lot of EPL football is on BT Sport as is rights to Ashes in Australia, and tennis is on Amazon prime
  13. Sooda

    KL is striking the ball well

    Have said for months that India's top 4 should be Rohit, Shikar, Rahul, Virat

    2nd T20. Ind vs Aus at B'luru

    Yep. We need 220+ with the paper thin bowling lineup we have today. What is the point of Krunal as low as 8 . terrible selection s
  15. K Gowtham T20 bowling ave 28, econ 7.3 and batting sr of 168 with two T20 half centuries. Shreyas Gopal t20 bowling average : 18, econ: 7.5 Gopal is a more than useful bat. Markande T20 bowling ave 26, econ: 8 Given they're much better bats and probably just as good if not better bowlers (more experience too) I would have preferred Gowtham or Gopal in the team
  16. Are you confusing Waugh brothers? Laxman, Inzy, Waugh in tests Waugh should have been much better with his ability.

    WC slots - DK vs Pant (2nd keeper slot)

    That's interesting line up, but Rohit at 4 will not accumulate briskly enough and if he opens starts well and hangs around till the end it works well for us
  18. Sooda

    WC slots - DK vs Pant (2nd keeper slot)

    Jadeja, Umesh, Kaul, Khaleel, are all battling for one spot. Do we need a 4th seamer or 3rd spinner/ 2nd all rounder I'd like to think Krunal would go, but unfortunately it's not happening Sirajand Khaleel have been disappointing, Umesh is one with experience and did well last WC why not give him ODI series, why play T20 where he is even worse than ODIs? Kaul and Umesh should have swapped spots in the squads.

    Hanuma Vihari

    Great Ranji season and now having a good VH tournament too. Should be drafted in the next A teams , average of close to 60 in FC cricket been a consistent scorer over the years What do people know of him - Is he potentially test class? Middle order ODI option?
  20. Rayudu is in the squad, so should not be in the poll Kartik SHOULD be in the squad, done juussst about enough and it's too late to try Pant now, instead DK should have been given a long run to hone his finishing skills until the WC Of the rest, I'd choose Rahul because he can open, again it's form depending and he needs to be given all matches to find some... I don't think he should have played T20 let him play ODIs only and bat himself into form rather than have to go hammer at everything
  21. His picks: Sachin Rohit Ganguly Virat Yuvraj MSD Kapil (c) Kumble Harbhajan Zaheer Bumrah What do you guys make of the team generally and Bumrah selection particularly...

    Duleep trophy dream teams

    AT XI's for the Zonal sides to mark the return of the competition Struggling a bit with a CZ and EZ and there may be some relatively obvious omissions... but here is a go anyway. Might be more domestic stalwarts who could feature, Ive gone for more obvious-ish names that have represented India. Bearing in mind the tourno only started in the early 60s a lot of the really oldie legends do not qualify...

  24. Id open with Merchant for West and drop Vengsarkar, tricky one though. Hard to see past them winning it Also, SS Karim should keep for RoI.

  25. Can the South side be tweaked, open with Ramesh or Rahul instead of Kunderan . WOuldnt want Budhi facing a pace attack of Kapil and Ishant say Get Kirmani to keep wicket drop Tiger and Kumble to captain. I dont like there being one paceman, but dont know how to fix it...interestingly Im pretty sure Buhdi Kunderan bowled a bit too in his time... :) Murali Vijay Ramesh Dravid GR Vishwanath Azharuddin Laxman Kirmani Ashwin Kumble Srinath Chandra
