    bowl_out got a reaction from sarcastic in 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??

    bowl_out got a reaction from jalebi_bhai in IND ODI Sqaud for NZ series announced : Rahul Shami and Umesh out   
    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

    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'.
     
    Rahul being dropped is disappointing. Should be there in place of Manish Pandey I feel. 
     
    Dinesh Karthik is our contingency plan for the 2019 WC if Dhoni gets injured so his inclusion is not surprising. Selectors have made up their mind.

    bowl_out got a reaction from Gollum in 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..

    bowl_out got a reaction from OpeningBatsman in Has Karn Sharma made a case for himself in the LOI setup?   
    If he passes the yo-yo test

    Like a 13 off 16 when the top order failed?

    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.

    Can't understand your obsession with Dhoni... i bet you have more posts referencing him than other posts... it's getting irritating beyond a point for neutral fans...

    bowl_out got a reaction from beetle in 2nd ODI IND v AUS | Eden Gardens | 21-Sept-2017 1:30 PM IST   
    Yup. But not when similar stuff is there on almost every post of yours on every thread. It used to be fun when done at relevant times, but now it is almost everywhere all the time. You being a mod yourself should know better.
     
    Anyways, back to the match discussion. 
     
    Is there any chance Rahul is going to come in for Rahane?

    Do people on here actually don't want Rohit to open in ODIs? He's one of the best ODI openers in the world.

    bowl_out reacted to Tibarn in Should Test Cricket be Split Into Two Groups?   
    I think 2 groups of test teams would make a lot of sense. Some of the matches we have played vs Windies, Lanka, Bangladesh, in the last few years have been unbearable. It feels like we haven't been challenged in those tests, and that Chandimal's innings was a legendary one for making a series competitive which otherwise wouldn't have been. 
     
    Now that Ireland and AFG are part of test cricket, the ICC can easily divide up the nations with an emphasis on more competitive cricket.
     
    There are now 12 test teams and rankings wise
    the top 6 are: India, SA, Aus, Eng, NZ, Pak
    the bottom 6 are: SL, WI, Bang, Zim, AFG, Ireland
     
    The ICC can make a cycle where teams in each group of 6 play each other and then the top performer of the bottom 6 and worst performer of the top 6 play a series to determine who gets promoted/relegated. 
     
    The only problem is that the big money making teams Ind, Aus, Eng are all in the top 6. If these teams don't tour the others, especially if India doesn't tour, then Test cricket isn't financially viable in those lower tier countries. The trade-off for keeping Test cricket "alive" and "growing" is to have crappy Test matches with sub-par teams.   If we want a high quality of Test cricket, then we'll have to start chopping teams off. I personally favor cutting out teams which aren't financially viable in Test cricket.

    bowl_out reacted to Tibarn in Experienced players ‘make big difference’ overseas – Pujara   
    You don't think the skeleton of our team is pretty well established?
    1st choice openers are Vijay and KL Rahul 
    Backups: Dhawan, Mukund, Gambhir
     
    Middle order: Pujara, Kohli, Rahane
    Backups: Rohit, Nair
     
    Spinners: Ashwin, Jadeja
    Backups: Kuldeep, Jayant
     
    Pacers: Shami, Ishant, Bhuvi, Umesh
    Backups: Thakur(?)
     
    Keeper: Saha
    Backup: Parthiv
     
    Allrounders to choose from: Ashwin, Jadeja, Pandya, Jayant, Bhuvi(?)
      
    I don't think there will be many changes outside of these players, barring injury. 
     
    Maybe is no fun, we already know we can possibly win any series.
    I just want to see if anyone is confident we will win any particular series overseas.
