    He’s not that good anyway . One of those players who bullies domestic bowlers but short of international standards

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


    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

     Imagine guys like Subhman Gill, Shaw, Agarwal getting the similar chances in the last one year ahead of Rayudu. 

    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

    Its so tough to become a cricket fan in this country. First of all they dont show any live cricket in freeview channels (used to do before) and now Sky lost all rights to Hotstar UK app of India matches. And the worst part is, Sky never formally announced anything. Sky signed 5 year IPL contract in 2017 but aparently they wont show it this year but no announcement.


    Hotstar is charging 25£/month subscription. Those of us who already paying Sky, would need to pay additional fee to get digital hotstar. This is non-sense.


    So Indian cricket fans in Britain, gear up...except world cup...no Indian cricket this year on Sky.

    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 


    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

    Has to be Waugh, Laxman and then Inzimam. 


    I wonder how @Harsh Thakor is calling mark Waugh technically beautiful to watch. His batting was ugly but supremely effective. HIs captaincy, his part time bowling adds to his persona. 

    Laxman scored against the best in test cricket. 

    Inzy is a genuine Pakistan great, however not in the same league as Waugh or Laxman

    Are you confusing Waugh brothers?


    Laxman, Inzy, Waugh in tests


    Waugh should have been much better with his ability.

    Squad of 15 based on some undroppable players and my preferred players 


    Shaw / Agarwal (for relatively quick starts) 






    Dhoni / Pant


    Bhuvi / Chahal




    • The 14 above include additional batsman, batsman/WK, and a bowler (pace/spin) 
    • 15th: Shankar (if he can bowl decently vs Aus when it visits Ind) or a back up quick bowler (can be some making his debut) 

    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

  8. 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.



  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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... :)

    spot on w.r.t Shreyas Iyer.... Always feel he has been hard done by selectors.... What has this guy done wrong to be neglected this way? Has done fairly well for a  rookie. He is performing well in the domestic as of now. As far as my thinking goes , he should be given his fair share of chances  in tests too, in dead rubbers , against lower ranked opponents etc. A stretch of 10-12 inns.. W.R.T any rookie ,catch them early   even way before turning 22, then give a stretch of 12-15 inns chances not on a trot, but when ever the oppertunity arrives.Do this just simultaneously for 2-3 rookies at the same  time. And absorb permanently   into the team if any of them meet the required standards... This should be going on  .. This way  it can be ensured that   mentally toughest of them only can get into the team because the chances they get are not continuous, yet when ever get a chance they performs  well.This shows their mental side  of the matters.

    He should have been in the current squad instead of Gill. There is no planning or consistency from selectors.

    I just noticed Manish Pandey's name is missing?

    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
