    Umesh, Manish, Not sure about shabaz in short formats ahead of say Gowtham or Gopal. Already have two slow left armers

    1 Tendulkar

    2. Rohit

    3. Kohli

    4. Ganguly

    5. Yuvraj

    6. Dhoni

    7. Kapil

    8. Kumble

    9. Zaheer

    10. Kuldeep

    11. Bumrah

     

     

    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

    Many of you are underestimating the synergies that would come by playing metronomical Jadeja as a fifth bowler instead of the idiot Hardik Pandya. You would have 6 specialist batsmen, 1 allrounde plus insanely economical bowler, plus 4 insanely economical bowlers. It's a pity that none of you understand the principles of Cruyjffism. 

    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?

    Chahal cannot be dropped. Pandya can be dropped. Pandya is dispensable, Chahal is not.

     

    IF you choose to play Bumrah-Bhuvneshwar-Kuldeep-Chahal-Jadeja, you have 5 consistent threats who each economy rate under 5. I can assure that IF we play these 5 bowlers, the combined synergy will be such that it will be IMPOSSIBLE for the opposition to score over 240 in 50 overs.

     

    Play attacking cricket.

    Drop hardik pandya.

    Play Rohit-Dhawan-Rahul-Kohli-Jadhav-Dhoni-Jadeja-Bhuv-Kul-Cha-Bum.

     

    As much as I support Pant, I would play Pant ahead of Jadhav only. Dhoni in a final, has increased threat of effecting crucial stumpings of specialist batsmen to spinners that Pant may not be capable of.

    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.

    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?

    Tho tbf to RJ it was his first ltd overs match in a while

    We have 4 batsmen who can't bowl and a keeper. So rest 6 will need to bowl. So 4 bowlers and 2 all rounders. 

     

    All rounders

    Pandya Bros,Jadhav

     

    Bowlers

    Bumrah, Khaleel,Kuldeep . 

    The last spot if spinner should be krunal. Else go with bhuvi. 

     

    Ideal team would be

     

    Dhawan

    Rohit

    Kohli

    KL

    Jadhav

    Pant

    Hardik

    Krunal

    Kuldeep

    Khaleel

    Bumrah

     

    Can't have more than 3 strike bowlers. Else need to drop Pandya Bros and have saini and siraj . Makes batting super weak.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    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. 


  8. 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

    @wanted_desi @bowl_out @SUMO 

    KL Rahul is not a middle order batsman, he bats in the top order. The lowest he can bat is #3! 

    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)

    UAE pitches are not flat or unresponsive. 

     

     

    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

    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.

    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.

    Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat first on a Dubai track expected to contain plenty of runs.
