  1. KL Rahul must play as opner in LOI

    Move your best player from his most successful batting position, so you can fit an inconsistent ever-injured guy in a spot where 2 other guys have done so well?? Thread ends right there.
  2. I even wonder if there is merit in playing Sundar in the ODI XI along with Chahal and Kuldeep. Pandya and Sundar can get 10 overs between them, and Sundar can be the No.6 / No. 7 bat... But for a start, I'd like to see him break into the T20 side, where he has proved his mettle.. IPL may not be the best place to judge a player for the national side, but for T20s it does to a good extent
  3. Yeah... such a great feat.. who cares that we lost the game... none of those trivial stuff matter..
  4. Maybe they'll rest him for SL
  5. Exactly what I said too.. Shami is too brittle to do multiple formats.. He is our best bowler for Tests.. Let's preserve him for that.. Bhuvi, Bumrah are the first choice for LOIs anyway
  6. Why is there so much surprise over Shami and Umesh being dropped. They have been identified as Test bowlers. They were just given a brief exposure to ODIs again.. Bhuvi, Bumrah, Pandya are the first choice ODI bowlers.. Thakur is a backup.. Rahul being dropped is shocking.. would have liked to see him get a few opportunities before being sidelined.. maybe he'll be back for SL
  7. Is Murali Vijay's form a matter of concern?

    If I remember correctly, he has never been a good Ranji player. Even during the times he did well in Internationals, his Ranji scores were bad... So likely not the correct yardstick to use..
  8. If he passes the yo-yo test
  9. So, Bumrah or Bhuvi will be dropped so Nehra can get a farewell game... Hmm
  10. Why is Dhoni still playing T20s for India?

    Like a 13 off 16 when the top order failed?
  11. Dhawan has been a consistent aggressive opener in ODIs. I wouldn't lose him for an inconsistent ever-injured Rahul. In T20s, I agree we should get young blood
  12. What a piss poor team. Probably the worst Aus team I've seen touring in a while. Is this their first choice batting line up (except for Smith)?
  13. Sunil Gavaskar Lashes Out At Selectors For Not Including Ajinkya Rahane In T20I Team Gavaskar playing the Mumbai card https://sports.ndtv.com/india-vs-australia-2017-18/india-vs-australia-sunil-gavaskar-lashes-out-at-selectors-for-not-including-ajinkya-rahane-in-t20i-t-1758597?pfrom=home-cricket
  14. For all the Pant hype, he doesn't seem to have an off-side game. He surely needs to work on that in domestic games before he is given an international run, else he'll be found out soon. It only works to his advantage that he is given more time in the domestic circuit.
  15. Your T20 squad to face Australia?

    ^^ That's the first choice ODI side for now. No Dhawan, Jadhav in T20s pls. And it's time for Pant over Dhoni, at least in T20s
  16. Lovely Run-out Saga Ro-h-li

    Rohit got run out this time, so no 200
  17. INDIA vs AUSTRALIA | 4th ODI | Bengaluru | Sep 28 2017

    Zampa gets whacked when he bowls full. He should bowl short to good length without too much width, and a full length ball occasionally. That really worked for him in his second spell.
  18. In T20 last year in Aus, India won 3-0
  19. Two more here and three against NZ. We'll get to 14. Then there's SA. They need to prove their mettle overseas to get the world record.
  20. Pattinson is not an ODI regular.. Starc, Hazelwood, Cummins/Coulter Nile are the core pace bowlers for the Aus ODI side
  21. Why Jadhav? Pandey shouldn't be batting so low at 6/7
  22. Kohli throws it away. Now the middle order will be tested
