  1. 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 +
  2. 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

    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

    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.

    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
  9. Last T20I vs NZ is on the 10th of Feb This series starts on the 24th, ends on March the 13th Then IPL starts on 23rd March Kohli should sit out the T20s vs NZ and Aus

    India A team to face england in unoffical tests

    Shaw, Agarwal, Panchal, Vihari, Nair (c), Pant, Gopal, Gowtham, Aniket, Siraj, Nadeem Chahar, Rajpoot, Easwaran, Gill .. Easwaran and Gill should open in 2nd match

  12. Easwaran was bit unfairly picked ahead of him for the last few A team squad. Think Panchal played one or two A team matches Vs NZ A? Could be wrong.
  13. Some current (and obvious) ones, some oldies
  14. I don't have the last one , must be MJ though part of me thought Bishen bedi
  15. Very good! 4, 7, 9 and 11 were incorrect 4 is Marshall as kooljatt said. 7 , 9 and 11 are Styen , Kallis and Joel Garner
  16. I would not say that, there have been ATG all rounder whose primary skill has been bowling. Bhuvneshwar is not a good enough bat to be called an AR he's. A bowler who can bat

    Viv Richards: I'd pick Sachin over Lara

    Lara has more special great innings than SRT but SRT was more consistent over longer period. I'd say it's a close one between the two. Could make a good case for Lara>SRT
  18. I watched this clip recently of Steve Waugh talking about Indias 1999 tour of Aus, must have been the first test and Aus were struggling at not much on the board for 4 at lunch, Waugh was new to the crease and Sachin got on Gangulys part time medium pace for a few overs. Waugh settled in, and went on to score a ton. No, Virat is not that bad a captain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQBCt9H0gnA
  19. Of course not but once you start off on such a bat note it's kinda all down hill The point is this is where warm up matches come in handy. Not a shortened match against borderline novices, actual FC matches where the mindset is honed for an intense test series. Those matches should be preceded by a camp focussing on skills like bowling the right length and judgment outside off stump. That's what Pak did right before their England tours. One innings of a 3 day match is not enough after a long run of short format matches.
  20. 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
