    I struggle to because no one can do that. Not possible.

    But then there is a classic definition: Batting Avg > Bowling Avg.

    How would you define an all-rounder? 

    I do not think an allrounder has to be good enough to make the XI on one skill - only ATG all rounders were able to do that. The Pandyas are good batsmen. They maybe not as good as some frontline specialist batsmen - but the fact that they can chip in with overs and potentially wickets means that they make up for it.

    One team did bad because someone was masquerading as a bowler who had no place on the team.

    That was not his fault, that is the fault of the selectors and management who decided on the final XI and its (im)balance.

     

    He is an AR not a bowler, not someone who should be picked to bowl a full quota of overs/ We needed a 6th bowling option. Sadly there arent any apart from Hardik...Shankar and Hooda spring to mind but are they good enough...? Dont know if Sundar is a good enough bat


  3. We lacked a 6th bowler today; Krunal is not someone who should be bowling full quota of overs. Both Pandya bros should play ODIs and T20Is , that will give us the balance we need. Hardik instead of Pant or Kartik , and that would probably be my ODI XI too.

     

    I know Krunal didnt turn up with the bat either but Playing 5 out and out bowlers weakens the batting significantly and its not like specialist bowlers- Khaleel -we exempt from being hammered.

  4. Team for three T20I match series against Windies announced

    Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar, KL Rahul, DK, Manish, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem

     

    Good-

     

    Krunal finally

     

    Bad

     

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

    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
