  1. TBH they all warrant selection to some degree as batsmen but probably from this IPL you’re looking at dhoni or pant as the keeper mainly because Samson hasn’t been as consistent as the others so probably doesn’t get a look in atm and is much more used to fielding anyway than the other keepers are, same with Rahul (fielding wise, he’s been immense with the bat this IPL). DK probably misses out because if you want experience it’s dhoni, if you want youth it’s pant...
  2. Narine never really focused on tests much plus he’s been called for chucking how many times now? He’s still a good t20 bowler but he doesn’t get the turn he used to since changing his action so even if he wanted to play tests (I don’t think he wants to tbh) and even if he then gets selected I don’t think he’d be nearly as lethal as he would’ve been early in his career when he got a lot more turn more often. rashid is very good, he’s been playing for awhile now and is still getting very good results, test matches will be a new test for him but in combination with mujeeb I think Afghanistan are going to have a formidable bowling unit.

    KL Rahul's batting is absolute treat to watch

    Yeah Rahul is terrific, would like vohra to get more chances, he’s also a treat to watch and Gill and Samson play proper cricketing shots to.

    Who is Jofra Archer?

    Terrific allround prospect who dreams of playing for England. I’m sure if he wanted to play for WI he’d probably already be playing international cricket.

    KL Rahul is the next batting superstar from Asia

    Kohli is one of the most talented of all time, so is an de villiers. KL is exceptionally talented, sad that he hasn't got more opportunities than he's already had but hopefully from here on he can prove himself and secure a spot in all 3 formats.
  6. Tendulkar, Gilchrist, amla...

    The Players of West-Indies T-20

    Could be even better if jofra archer wanted to play for the windies, also got Rovman Powell on the sidelines.
  8. Kohli, abdv, sangakkara, gilly, Lara, Viv, sobers, pollock, Barry Richards, Procter, Miller, Hussey.
  9. pretty happy with this squad, do wish gill would've been there though.

    The great Nidahas Trophy 2018-Pre Tournament Discussion

    Prithvi isn't ready for the short format stuff yet, can get a go in tests. Gill needs some short format experience, if they can get him ready in time for the WC then the team will be a lot stronger (same with Rahul), I wouldn't play gill in t20s too much though, maybe against the weaker teams first and see how he goes, needs to play the 50 over stuff.
  11. 1 dhawan 2 rohit 3 kohli 4 rahul 5 gill 6 pant (wk) 7 hooda 8 pandya want to see a combination of these 8 in most XI’s moving towards the WC. Need to see if pandya can bat consistently enough to have a top 7 spot and if he can do the lower order hitting role well enough in which case take the top 6 from above as the team with pandya at 7. Hooda and Gill then fight for a spot, if these two excel then they put pressure on Rahul, Rohit and dhawan for a spot.
  12. Pant, hardik, hooda, tripathi, vohra, players who are more t20 suites are generally going to be the ones who can get going earlier in their innings so these would be the guys you need to give experience in preparation for the next WC if you’re needing or wanting players that can hit earlier in their innings. Trick is to find the t20 batsmen who are capable of playing the longer innings so if they come in earlier they can still make a proper game of it. i think 3-5 need to be versatile and need to be able to change gears almost at will at anytime so ideal guys for 3-5 would be kohli, Rahul and Gill. Vohra has potential but he’s not consistent enough, imo to bat higher up just yet.

    India's over reliance on top 3

    Got to prepare the young guys so they are ready for the World Cup, means giving Rahul, Gill, pant and hooda consistent games. If tripathi and vohra can become more consistent then they can start to be introduced.

    The great Nidahas Trophy 2018-Pre Tournament Discussion

    LK Rahul, Gill, vohra, tripathi and pant should be a part of this tournament.

    Indian Test openers for ENG tour ?

    Rahul, shaw, pujara, kohli, gill, rahane. If they can guide Rahul, Shaw and Gill properly then this would be a terrific top 6 though probably too early to play all of Rahul, Shaw and Gill in the same xi at this stage.
