  1. kl Rahul must play as opner in LOI

    It seems that shameless Gavaskar has got some agenda running against him and to make it even more worst, our gutless selectors took a U turn and even listened to this so-called expert.
  2. If the team wants Rahul to bat at 4, he should've been given more time to settle down in that unfiliar order.. Someone need to kick out that old Gavaskar from commentary panel as he's trying to fool people with his biased views for Rahane.
  3. What an utter load of c this is and the selectors are bending backwards to whims and wishes of that Mumbaikar Gavaskar. LOL. Hope when we tour SA, they smash these overrated players.
  4. Let's use this thread to identify which players are best suited to play particular formats. There seems to be a inability on part of the selectors to identify the skillsets required by each format of the game. Batsmen: Kohli - Test, ODI and T20 KL Rahul - Test, ODI and T20 Dhawan - Test and ODI Rahane - Test and ODI Pandey - Test and ODI Vijay - Test Pujara - Test Rohit - ODI and T20 Jadhav - ODI and T20 Dhoni - ODI All-rounders: Pandya - Test, ODI and T20 Ashwin - Test Jadeja - Test Bowlers: Shami - Test, ODI and T20 Bumrah - Test, ODI and T20 Kuldeep - Test, ODI and T20 Kumar - Test and T20 Yadav - Test Feel free to add any left out players, IPL and even uncapped players.
  5. Can we beat SA in SA in the upcoming test series?

    It all depends on which bowlers that we are going to take there. If it's an attack of Kumar, Ishant, Ashwin and Jadeja, they should just stay back home and hand over the trophy.
  6. Why is Dhoni still playing T20s for India?

    To make sure India never wins another T20 Worldcup.
  7. Kuldeep Yadav vs Ashwin Ravichandran in ODIs

    The one thing I noticed with Ashwin is his lack of ability to extract bounce when there is no turn in the pitch and he bowls way slower than he did before. That's a recipe for disaster in LOIs and add to his fitness issues. He's done for as for limited overs are concerned.
  8. Its not just about youngsters, most of them won't even make it into Indian team considering the amount of players we have participating and not to mention the selector's reluctance to give youngsters a chance. Kohli selected the same set of players even in dead rubbers, so how will these guys ever hope to receive caps.
  9. Only grade-A crooks in BCCI can come up with this strategy and this guy is even taking a dig at Kumble. Kohli is only supporting this idea cuz for seniors to have some monopoly over the youngsters, that much is obvious.
  10. Wait a minute. If suppose an uncapped player, say, Thampi gets picked up for 5 crores and he need to share his money with Pujara? But where will all the broadcast money in BCCI goes? Shouldn't they be channeling that money to fund Ranji players?
  11. The current bunch of selectors are utter joke, just like that Sunil Gavaskar. They lack the basic understanding how the game works in this age, especially that old guy Gavaskar who's not fit to be in the commentary panel.
  12. Is this selection committee best India had?

    Not good enough. Their flawed approach is keeping us back, we will never be a truly dominant team even after having the right ingredients.
  13. We are blessed

    Only thing left now is for selectors to select the oldies over youngsters. What a tough job to do.
  14. Select your best T20 XI for India

    Rohit Pant Kohli Rahul Pandya Krunal Rana Kuldeep Chahal Kumar Bumrah
  15. Cheteswar Pujara's overseas form

    Rahane is a different case in Test Cricket as he's a champion bat. Do we even have someone matching his skillsets? I'd be more than happy if we get one more player like him in our batting unit.
  16. I was looking forward to seeing youngsters for T20 series. The selectors need to be booted out for not getting even basics right.
  17. Pick your player and state your reasons for it. Given a chance, I am sure the both of them won't make into teams like SA, ENG or AUS.
  18. Cheteswar Pujara's overseas form

    Its tough to expect anything from them if their debut match is in overseas conditions.
  19. Cheteswar Pujara's overseas form

    He will be our weak link in the batting and we don't have a suitable back-up option for him. Just great.
  20. How to Make ODI cricket more relevant ?

    They should divide teams into 2 tiers according to their rankings and organize only trilaterals for ODIs and T20s. One team from your group and one from the other.
  21. The no.4 conundrum

    We need to make use of Pandya's ability to hit sixes at will against the spinners. But playing him at 4 will only increase his workload and seeing he's the only power hitter down the order, it will be unfair on other players who are not used to that role. For me, he's best to bat at #5. 4 will go to either KL Rahul or Manish Pandey. If only Manish could bat at high strike rates, he could've been easily tried at 6. For now, I would play him ahead of KL considering the current form and would stick to the same top 4 with out constant chops or change in batting orders at least for 15-20 matches. As for KLR goes, he's someone special who have the ability to match even Kohli. So I'd rather see him warm the bench than waste his talent on #5 or #6 positions. I think he needs to wait a little longer until a spot opens up in top 4. That leaves us at #6 spot opened, with no potential candidates to fill. I think this where our management failed spectacularly in the last couple of years, giving too much emphasis on just the top order. For me, #4 and #6 are the most important positions for a team to succeed. For now this will be my middle order, Pandey at 4 Pandya (batting-allrounder) Kedhar / Krunal (batting-allrounder) Pant (W)
  22. What do you think is more important in today's more batting friendly wickets? OR at least from team India's point of view, considering the plus and minuses of our combined bowling attack.
  23. If required rate is >4 then dhoni should bat at #11

    Ah leave it, someone merged the threads. Anyways, the bottom line is Dhoni succks.
  24. You must be quoting to a wrong person then. I don't create threads based on single matches or judge players for that matter.
  25. If required rate is >4 then dhoni should bat at #11

    Most overrated player of the century? Close your eyes, pray for it and hack it hard.
