    For the love of God, Pant has to perform in LOIs

    It's because ICF has hyped him so much that now they want him to perform in every match to find a permanent place in the team, and get disappointed when he doesn't because he didn't live up to their lofted expectations.

    Give Jadhav a chance to bat in the middle overs

    You don't need to take quick singles to build a long innings. You need to stay at the crease to build a long innings. Taking quick singles isn't the only way to score runs. And Kedar Jadhav's strike rate proves that his way of scoring runs is effective, even if it is different from the way Virat Kohli scores runs. The guy has scored over 1000 runs in a Ranji Trophy season at a strike rate of over 80, which again must be unprecedented.

    Give Jadhav a chance to bat in the middle overs

    Before he debuted for India, he had an average of 50 in List A cricket and a strike rate of over 100 batting not at 6 where you say his batting style is most suited for, but 4 or 5. How many No. 4 or No. 5 batsman in Indian domestic cricket have had an average of 50 and strike rate of 100+ over 40+ matches?

    Give Jadhav a chance to bat in the middle overs

    I never said I think he's a long-term option. I just said that right now he's more valuable to the team batting at 4 or 5.

    Give Jadhav a chance to bat in the middle overs

    That's cool but I'm not sure how you can say he's failed every time. He's played innings like that 120 and 90 and good strike rates when the team was 4 down, imagine if he played with the luxury of more batsmen after him. He hasn't particularly failed at 6 but his game isn't really suited to hitting big sixes to finish the innings, it's to build the score in the middle overs, and he's proven to do that really well in domestic cricket. Not many players at 4 or 5 in our domestic system have played at a strike rate of more than 100. That is extremely valuable for the Indian batting line-up right now.

    Give Jadhav a chance to bat in the middle overs

    He scored 90 off 75 in another ODI in that same series, albeit in a losing cause.

    Give Jadhav a chance to bat in the middle overs

    He had a 200 run partnership with Kohli in a ODI against England last year where he scored 120 off 76 balls.

    Give Jadhav a chance to bat in the middle overs

    He's scored big runs in both List A and first-class cricket batting at 4 and 5 while striking at better than run a ball. Whether or not he stays till the end, he puts the team in a good position going into the last few overs.

    Countdown to another 370+ score for India

    You know it's coming.

    Exactly. They want him to play like a finisher but he's more suited in the middle overs and India needs that too right now.

    So a talent like Rahul has been sidelined for these players?

    Would/should be according to who? The fans? Just because fans think Pant should be the 2nd wicketkeeper doesn't mean the team management and selectors feels the same way. These are the same people who want Rayudu as our No. 4.

    So a talent like Rahul has been sidelined for these players?

    No. The message is that they're using the T20I format to decide which one of Pant or Karthik is going to accompany Dhoni to England. Basically, the message is that Pant can be dropped too before the World Cup.

    The message being that Dhoni is still being considered for T20I and they're looking for a 2nd wicketkeeper?

    I am glad India lost

    They can lose every match in Australia but the only change that will happen in the ODI team is after the World Cup. Australia tour will be too late to make changes to their plans.
  16. Shreyas Iyer hit the most sixes in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

    I am glad India lost

    The way you worded it confused me. Having a batting line-up up till No. 7 is not a big deal. Thing is with Dhoni and Pandya at 5 and 7, you have a spot for just one player at 6, and that's going to be Kedar Jadhav because he also gives the option with his off-spin.

    So drop both Kuldeep and Chahal?

    IND v WI | 3rd ODI | Pune | 27th October 1.30 PM |

    Axe will fall on Pant who will be replaced by Kedar Jadhav in the next match.
  20. Kedar's bowling gives him the edge.
  21. Shubman Gill's stats this season in both first-class and List A cricket were good but there were others who performed even better than him. Do you take that punt on him because of his potential ahead of other older players who performed better? The hope being that he would improve exponentially playing at the international level, the same way that Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli among others improved.

    Lower order hitting solution

    I hope they keep a close eye on Ishan Kishan. He has big potential but can be inconsistent. He can be a Raina-ish player for India.

    T20 squad Vs windies - EARLY DIWALI GIFT - NO DHONI

    Manish Pandey. What a waste of a spot. I hope they're not stupid enough to pick him in the XI.
