  1. 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

    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?
  5. 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
  6. 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... WZ Gavaskar ©, Jaffer, Vengsarkar, Tendulkar, Manjrekar, Shastri, Engineer (wk), Agarkar, R Powar, Z Khan, P Shivalkar SZ S Ramesh, K Srikkanth, R Dravid, G Vishwanath, M Azharuddin, V Laxman, S Kirmani (wk), A Kumble ©, J Srinath, V Prasad, B Chandrashekar NZ Sehwag, Gambhir, Chopra, Sidhu, Amarnath, Kapil Dev ©, M Prabhakar, Vijay Yadav (wk), Harbhajan Singh, Bishan Bedi, R Goel CZ S Bangar, Vijay Manjrekar, M Kaif ©, P Amre, Raina, N Ojha (wk), Durani, P Kumar, N Hirwani, S Gupte, R P Singh EZ Arun Lal, Pankaj Roy, SS Das, S Ganguly ©, A Malhotra, Dhoni (wk), Laxmi R Shukla, Utpal Chatterjee, Dilip Doshi, R Bose, D Mohanty
  9. 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. From my 2012 thread: Central Zone: S Bangar, Vijay Manjrekar, M Kaif ©, P Amre, Raina, N Ojha (wk), Durani, P Kumar, N Hirwani, S Gupte, R P Singh East Zone: Arun Lal, Pankaj Roy, SS Das, S Ganguly ©, A Malhotra, Dhoni (wk), Laxmi R Shukla, Utpal Chatterjee, Dilip Doshi, R Bose, D Mohanty
  10. 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
  11. @Gollum Great thread, btw I did something similar 7 (SEVEN!!!) Years ago right here
  12. Sooda

    T20 revamp should start right now

    Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit, Rahul, Virat, Hardik, Pant, Krunal, Shreyas Gopal, Bhuvneshwar, Kuldeep, Jasprit Chahal, Rajpoot, Rana, Kishan
  13. He should have been in the current squad instead of Gill. There is no planning or consistency from selectors.

    The Never Ending Thread

    :) Im really out of touch with Bolly scene for a few years now. I didnt do a list last year either, I genuinly used to put a lot of effort into it as well! Other priorities taken over now I guess!! Thanks for remembering though hehe. Hope youre well

    Worst batsmen to play for India

    See my post above :)

    Worst batsmen to play for India

    Devang Gandhi
  17. I know MS is listed at 6... but it should not be. Neither Rayudu nor KJ are no 6 bats. Kartik however is, so why drop him ? If it is to give Rayudu batting time he should come in 3 or at 4 Problem would be worse if we were batting first and had a good start
  18. I know he's not fashionable but in light of the absentees Abhinav Mukund would be worth considering too , top scorer in last VH , list A average of 50 +
  19. Also playing Ranji Semis Bawnes List A strike rate is 71 Rahane is not an ODI player Nitesh Rana was good in the Emerging players tourno few weeks ago, and should be in this squad. Maybe Indrajith- had a good VH trophy last year and been in form for TN in FC cricket too. Surya Kumar would be another possibility, good limited overs player

    Good starting 11

    From the current squad and if we accept MS ain't going nowhere... Got 6 bowlers which is critical Got Batting depth If MSD and not KJ comes in at 4 it'd be ideal Get Hardik in for Shankar and Jasprit , Kuldeep for Jadeja, Chahal in England and that is our WC xi . Weakened batting on paper with no Jadeja but not sure that he adds much value in ODI, especially as no 8 bat

    Team for World Cup 2019

    From the current squad and if we accept MS ain't going nowhere... today's 11 is good Got 6 bowlers which is critical Got Batting depth If MSD and not KJ comes in at 4 it'd be ideal Get Hardik, Jasprit , Kuldeep in for Shankar, Jadeja, Chahal in England and that is our WC xi . Weakened batting on paper with no Jadeja but not sure that he adds much value in ODI, especially as no 8 bat

    Get Dhonified !!!

    MSD still has a problem with really ramping up the SR . I have doubts about his accumulation ability Which have some what been allayed today. But he maybe needs to come even higher in the line up. With Virat and MSD together that is two "anchor" type bats and the RR isn't high enough
  23. Sooda

    What are ur replacement for middle order junk

    I would love to see an inform KL at 3 and Virat at 4 ... followed by Hardik, Dinesh, Krunal . Following his IPL it was right that MSD got a few more ODIs but the England series should have been the nail in his ODI career.
  24. Sooda

    Preferred ODI WC19 11 / Squad

    Shikar Dhawan Rohit Sharma KL Rahul Virat Kohli Hardik Pandya Dinesh Kartik Krunal Pandya Bhuvneshwar Kumar Kuldeep Yadav Jasprit Bumrah MOhammed Shami YUzvendra Chahal, Ankit Rajpoot, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Rishab Pant

    India A team to face england in unoffical tests

    Good point, re: Siraj. I know he's not a T20 bowler, and he was top VH trophy wkt taker few seasons ago, but i do wonder how good he is in one day matches compared to say Rajpoot
