    Krunal Pandya’s knock today is a breath of fresh air

    When i wrote about having him 50 overs match too as the 6th bowler soem time back , many here commented that he is not a SPINNER . We should not forget the value of a restrictive bowler also who is a good AR package in the eleven in a t20 or 50 overs match. These one day matches throw up situations so many times that a restricve spell of couple of overs makes a big impact in a tight game and then batsmen underr pressure make mistakes . The restrictive bowler may/may not take that wicket but will help in some one getting it . My punt is this pandya will also shine in 50 overs . Feels good we are very near to the T20 team we all wanted here at ICF.

    Khaleel Ahmed progression watch.

    But still a pretty good bowler for his age . There is no shame in admitting talent even if he is a Pakistani .

    Khaleel if does swing the ball both ways with control even at 135K is a far better option that khaleel with no swing even if he bowls 140k . But the moot point is will he reach that level quickly ? Mumbai was good but nothing much to note today though it was cloudy.

    Ranji trophy 2018-19

    Am still not convinced. Quality of opposition with so many 4 th grade teams is appalling in Ranji level. At international level , he will be really tested and his weak points will be magnified . Better to face that now and then work upon.

    Ranji trophy 2018-19

    No we need to look at Short term of WC requirements. Khaleel is a serious contender for WC if he progresses a bit more . If he can swing and bend it back even a bit, along with away going ball he will be good . Last match very hearteniung . Let him do it consistently then he can increase the pace by atleast 5-6 K , that should be fine . Plan b type bowling he already has , hit the deck , slower ball , cutter . So he will become not so easy to predict if he can use both types of bowling. And playing in T20 now , should also tell him about his defensive bowling skills and where he shouls he improve to avoid thrashing at death. So he will another 3 months after Aus t20 to work on improvements . Yes After this year , he should a regular fixture in domestic.

    Not sure what is happening . May be coach wants to him to bring the ball back to be more effective , may be TM must have made their expectations known to him. . Except for yesterday 1 st spell , i have not seen him bring it back much. Even in 2nd spell he did not do anything. His basic action his very hign arm which will get bounce . So he must be changing his action , release in trying to get swing. Zak was yesterday poiting out some flaws which have creeped up in his action esp. non-bowling arm. Problem is , he is in the middle of matches and some changes being done. He must be very nervous about getting smacked in this phase. Second issue could be some niggle.
  11. Some thing looks not OK in these stats . I can't remember more than 1 -2 innings if any substance since last 7-9-monrhs. How many innings helped to win and how many we lost ? What was the RRR when he came in and when he got out? One reason could be most of the time made 15 ball 20 , 10 ball 20 , 30 ball 40 but impact in winning the match just Zilch ... I think one should really go match by match to see the impact of his innings in the last 8-9-months. .

    Looks like he may not go too far and one of the reasons would be me know all attitude .
  15. Give me one indian name who you think better than Hardik so that we can replace him right now. If you do not have , then you have to go by what you have .

    The Indian pace bowling depth.

    I would add the role of State team selectors also in this . You will see some young talents being given chance in A, B C teams like in deodhar as well as in India A teams So may be Dravid with junior selectors are identifying and trying to give chances to them but not supported by states . You see number of matches played by them for states its very poor. Rajastan :- Rahul chahar included in Deodhar trophy but has played 1 FC game so far since debuting in 2016 , Khaleel hadly any exposure, Nathu - played 1-2 game after injury , but not heard after that. UP - Shivam Mavi plays in one game but droped for the rest. Karnataka - Prasidh K - reaches upto India A level teams but has played 1 FC game. MP - Avesh Khan , since his debut in 2014 has played 8 FC games !!! but was palying vs WI team recently. Only exception seems to be Shaw & this year - Gill . I think this year is very crucial and state teams & Junior selection team must ensure those in the radar should be given as many chances in state teams . We seem to be building our replacements in batting in Shaw, Gill , Vihari but there seems to be no vision re: spinners and pacers. By now there is clear indication of potential replacement candidates but selectors need to do follow up act. Pace bowling - Need replacements for Bhuvi, Shami , Umesh WC u-19, IPL & recent A level matches have shown that Mavi, Nagarkoti, Prasidh, Rajpoot , Avesh are the ones to be consistently groomed and played for next set of pace bowlers . Excluding here Saini, Siraj as they are atleast getting regular chances upto A level teams, so should be in team soon . Spin Bowling:- Need replacements for ODI team - Alternative to Chahal needed . Markande, Rahul Chahar & Shreyas Gopal should be in contention . Spin Bowling Allrounder :- Need replacements for Jadeja & Axar Anukul Roy , W. Sundar, Krulnal Pandya to be consistetently played . Need to also look for Pace bowler with some batting ability.
  17. At the same time by giving chance to Kohli, we have got a world beater now. When that selection was made the choice was between a talented teenager with vast scope for improvement vs well established player at almost peak with not much further room for improvement. Thats why a good selection is one where you punt on a player with high scope for improvement over someone who has very limited space for further improvement. Your punt may not come good sometimes but thats the way to go

    If TM wants that MSD should be part of WC , then include him in 15 and give a match in knock out stage vs minnows and ignore for all other tough matches . This can be the workaround to come out of this mess.

    Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    I think selectors should be clear what issues we have and who can fix that in pace bowling? Death bowling issue :- At present apart from Bhumra , only Bhuvi has ready made skills and he can always recover back. But then he is not taking wickets in initial spell. So it means select bhuvi - may be give him 3-4 over initial spell and then rest of the overs he should be bowling in death overs bowling mode . Opening Spell: Now while seleting the third pacer - selectors should go for someone who can bowl upfront, who can pick up wickets and who is also little decent at death to cover any injury to Bhuvi/Bhumra. Out of the 3 - Umesh, Shami & Khaleel - Umesh & Shami can bowl opening spells but Umesh sligtly ahead of Shami re: death bowling skills . The last over to Hope in tied match - First 5 balls were really good , which gives an indication that he can be a cover up death bowler . ( Someone seem to have advised about 6th ball to him ..) But for that Umesh need to more consistent and improve further and selectors should tell him upfront he has 6 games at a strech to show his skill . At present form - Khaleel cannot make 3 rd seamer spot . I think they should try 3 of these for 3rd seamer spot till WC and see who performs better .

    And that little swipe at Holder without moving an inch .....? The ball was supposed to go to cover fence like a tracer bullet ... That too was out of this world ...? Is it not .. ? Only thing sad was it just went to keeper's gloves ...

    I am glad India lost

    Even now India can stich together a decent team for WC. ( AM looking at players who have been getting selected on & off as of now as there is very little chance many more new guys getting considered till WC) . Top 3 No- 4 :- Rahul/Raydu/Iyer /Gill /DK at 4 ( Should be decent against pace & spin- Raydu & Iyer - Better vs spin but not decent vs Pace . KLR - Decent vs pace but suspect against mystery spinners ). 2 out of 5 should be selected. KLR will also give you third opener option , if one Shikar. Rohit gets injured /fails . Raydu/DK - also provide 2 nd WK option , though do not like both of them personally. Best option should be play KLR at 4 vs teams like AUs, Eng etc, and against teams heavy with spinners you can consider - one of Raydu, DK /Gill ( Gill may not get chance before WC , though i would play right away)- whoever plays better upto WC. No.5 :- Pant No.6 - Jadhav - with an option of 6th bowling option. No.7 - Hardik . No.8 - Krunal . No.9 - Kuldeep No.10 - Bhuvi No.11 - Bhumra Here the strategy is to score big and then try to restrict them under score board pressure and if batting second chase down with these 8 batters . - A strategy similar to England. Out of the 8 batters , atleast 2 will have licence to go for the kill . ( May be Pant & Kedar or Hardik todo this) and they will often come up the order based on match situations to up the score. Krunal plays the restrictive role ( have seen him to be intelligent , could be a better option than chahal at present form). A good restrictive bowler is as good as frontline bowler in an ODI team. They can also try a second strategy where they can bring in a pure bowler in place of Krunal at No.8 - Could be Chahal for Sena teams and Umesh/ Shami/Khaleel if pitch is bit helpful. From now till WC , try these 2 startegies with above team and see which one looks to be working.

    Deodhar Trophy 2018

    I think proper assessment should be- he is not a ODI player . PERIOD. After looking at his play in ODI for the last so many years , any selector worth his salt , should be able to make this out . No point in looking data 144 in XXX balls etc. I think we should not even discuss his ODI scores , as no one here consider him as ODI candidate

    Rishab Pant will be dropped next match

    Because MSD would have tuk- tukoed for 20 ball 10-11 runs and run rate would have gone betond chase for all others to chase . I think even TM now knows what will happen when MSD goes to bat when run rate around 6 or 6+. Bit of a bad luck for Pant , had he scored 45-50 , there was every chance for the rest to close game as run rate would have come down to 5.5 per over kinda range to chase . For me logic of sending Pant at 5 at that time looked right.
