  1. bowl_out

    Jaddu vs Pandya

    Hardik at 6 means 6 bowlers - which has never happened in Indian cricket history as far as I can remember. It looks like Jadhav will play at 6 The combinations for 7-11 are : Hardik, Kuldeep, Chahal, Bhuvi, Bumrah (our combination for the last few months) Jadeja, Kuldeep, Chahal, Bhuvi Bumrah (unlikely. 4 spinners including Jadhav) Jadeja, Kuldeep, Khaleel, Bhuvi, Bumrah Hardik, Jadeja, Kuldeep, Bhuvi, Bumrah Third and fourth are exciting combinations.. 3 gives bowling depth, 4 gives batting depth.. We should use one of these two based on conditions. You suggestion is probably to use option 3 + Hardik at 6.. which is looks impressive too, but is way too aggressive for our team management

    People said that about Rahane, not Rayudu
  3. bowl_out

    Dropping Chahal would be idiocy.

    Can't have four spinners in your XI when playing in England (Kul-cha-jadeja-jadhav) Instead, have the same team.. But Bring Pandya back.. and rotate Jadeja and Chahal. You get batting till 8 (although there are middle order passengers) You get 5 bowlers + jadhav Jadeja in the field is always useful
  4. Easy runs available. Guess who comes in - MS Thalaivali
  5. Wow. That’s an improvement. He normally deals in dot balls
  6. A good chance that Dhoni, Jadeja, Rayudu, Jadhav, Chahar will play the next ODI.. Throw in Harbhajan and Raina.. that was CSK's starting 7 Indian players in their opening match against MI http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8048/scorecard/1136561/mumbai-indians-vs-chennai-super-kings-1st-match-indian-premier-league-2018
  7. sucking up to get into the squad - check sucking up to get into the XI - in progress
  8. Useless match Wish Rashid played this important knock in a match that mattered to the tour results
  9. Was hoping to see Saini or Siraj. Kaul’s selection is a big disappointment. One can only hope that Jadeja’s selection is just for this series and not beyond. Pant should get his due in the WI series?

    Pathetic middle order is an understatement

    Wishful thinking that Karthik will take the gloves.. MS Dadu will play even against UAE and Bermuda if they were still playing

    Krunal should replace Hardik in the Asia Cup squad

    With Jadhav coming in, Krunal is going to find it tough to get a spot as the third spinner. Pant should get a look in, and hopefully replace DK after this tour. Wish I said replace MSD, but Dadu aint going anywhere

    Pathetic middle order is an understatement

    Top 3 are settled Pandya will play at 7 Jadhav seems to have sealed his spot for 6. And provides the sixth bowling option. Also the primary role of No. 6 is batting and Jadhav is a batsman who bowls part time. So no Krunal or Sundar till 2019. Only 4 and 5 left. MSD will surely take one of them. The other spot is left for Rayudu, Rahul, Pandey, DK, Iyer to fight it out. Probably 2 or 3 of these 5 will be picked in the squad. Jadhav seems to have some value add. Hope he gains some form with the bat too, he can play the role as finisher. Hope Rahul seals the No. 4 spot. The only problem is the keeper bat at 5 (which we’ll unfortunately have to live with)
