  1. Really hope Karthik does well this series.. And the selectors decide time is up for Dhoni and get Iyer/KLR to play in the middle order.

     

    I am not a big fan of Pant in ODIs yet.. He is raw, doesn't have a good off-side game, poor domestic performances recently... Get him into the T20I side, but for ODIs he'll have to wait till after Wc'19

    Thought it was sachin back in 2012... doubt anyone could come close to that.

    I was a big critic of Sachin overstaying, but I doubt that he was this bad.. I was once a Dhoni fan, but wonder what he contributes to the team now.. He can't slog, he can't rotate the strike..

    He is probably better off playing a quick 20 off 15 trying to go for his shots than playing a painful 25 off 42 thinking he's going to play the long innings.... or even better, retire and take a coach/mentor/commentator role 

     


  3. 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

    I might be in the minority here, but I'm fine with Shami and Umesh being dropped. They are our first choice pacers in Tests so I'd rather they rest and prepare for the upcoming Test series'.

    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


  5. 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

    4 players from current squad of Top 6 actually dont deserve a place in 

    Dhoni, Jadhav, Dhawan, pandey in order.. 

     

    We need a dasher at the top to take advantage of the top.. ALSO rahul is too gud player to sit out.. Best place for him to bat is to open...

    NOW ROHit sharma has to bat at 4 and play the role of finisher as he does for Mi. That will solve our no.  4 prob atleast in t-20s

     

    We need a fast bowling all rounder, ideally a left armer so that we can play 6 bowlers and 2 wrist spinners regularly without compromising in batting.. 

    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


  7. Sunil Gavaskar Lashes Out At Selectors For Not Including Ajinkya Rahane In T20I Team

    Quote

    Cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar on Wednesday lashed out at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) selectors for not including batsman Ajinkya Rahane in the Twenty20 squad against Australia starting October 7. The former India captain was furious at Rahane's exclusion who scored four consecutive fifties in the recently concluded ODI series against Aussies. He also raised questions on KL Rahul's inclusion in the T20I squad and said that the selectors need to give a valid reason for the same
