  1. Our bowling have serious issues. Bhuvi, Chahal and Pandya are avg bowlers. Only Bumrah and Kuldeep are reliable with ball.
  2. Bhuvneshwar Kumar's Stats (87 matches) He has played 87 matches and has 90 odi wickets to his name at avg of 38.85 & strike rate of 46.5 Avg vs Top 4 countries. Australia (12 matches) - 64.37 England (14 matches) - 53.50 South Africa (13 matches) - 52.92 New Zealand (8 matches) - 48.00 Okay most people will ignore or oppose this but the truth is he is massively overrated bowler and is very very lucky to represent indian team even after this poor performance for soo long. He can win you match with bat against lankans but surely can't do at worldcup stage. Yes he can pick 2 or 3 wickets against pakistan in asia cup but that doesn't hide his inconsistency for such a long period of time. There have been bowlers who have won us worldcup (Munaf patel, Sreesanth, RP singh) who had better avg than this trundler bhuvi but they were never given this long rope? I don't have issue with bhuvi but if you are playing hardik pandya then you need strike bowler not bowler who will try to bowl his overs at less runs. In Tests his stats will look great cause he only plays on green tops. In t20 he is as good bowler as bumrah is but other two formats he is surely overrated. @beetle No this is not a troll so don't react that way. This is real stats of him and there is nothing i faked.

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar is Overrated in ODIs?

    Okay i am not here being anti-bhuvi. As a person i really like him but i fear that he won't be wicket taker when we need wickets from him. Yes he can still improve till worldcup but looking at his bowling today idk if he is gonna have impact in worldcup. We don't even have good backup bowler. Will have to look at Shami or Umesh for worldcup soon.
  4. just kick him then? Not england. Not here then play in ipl? His avg is almost 40 and bowling rubbish when he should have leaded the attack in absence of bumrah.
  5. I have no faith in bhuvi, thakur vs pakistan. Bumrah and Kuldeep are only wicket takers we have for worldcup.
  6. Shardul Trundler Thakur is another useless fielder. Will leak runs with his bowling too.
  7. These dk, rayudu and jadhav are all pathetic fielders. Should look for youngsters who can score and save as well.
  8. Khaleel's action looks similar to barinder sran's action imo. Hopefully he can swing/seam at good pace.
  9. Looks pretty decent considering his overall strike rate.
  10. Well better not take risk against hong kong in such heat. If it was not back to back then there was chance for him to play it.
  11. Well bhuvi is coming back from injury so i won't be too critical of his batting. His bowling has serious issues in odis though.
  12. This bhubi looks good player. Should be backed for few years.
  13. Dhoni chaha made sure youngster jadhav gets his proper chance. That's why he is selfless captain cool.
  14. Give DK,Kedar & Dhoni a chance to bat. Tomorrow they might not get alot balls to bat.
  15. Rohit has scored 91 inning where he was ran out in ct 2017. Dhawan is best in icc events. Rohit has done well in icc tournaments too.
  16. I though atleast on cricket forum people will think and ask logical question. They are still asking why rahul/pandya not playing? really? even a dumb youtuber will know they are back from long season and need to play pakistan tomorrow. Made no sense to play two back to back matches after such long england tour.
  17. Nah better let him rest as he will be needed tomorrow around same time.
  18. which youngster is left now in squad? He already picked who ever was available. LOL
  19. No he was resting all england tour doing nothing. If Dhawan plays first match directly tomorrow then he has been out of form and not much practice in these conditions. For Rahul he played good knock in last innings. Pandya and Bumrah will have to bowl so twice in two day is not possible after long england tour. I feel selections are totally right.
  20. What's use of yo-yo test? These jadhav's and rayudu are passed now and still won't field good? Is it to measure how long you can bat/bowl? I feel then rayudu can do that without passing. Is it about fielding? Well nothing changed much with yo-yo tests too? Then where is difference? Maybe make standards high for yo-yo tests but we need to also see if player has ability to bat long innings and have skills & talent then he should be picked doesn't matter result of yo-yo tests.
  21. Guess you are talking about tri series before worldcup where our every batsman failed so that doesn't mean whole team can't bat against fast bowlers? But yeah he isn't very good against pace. I would say decent against pace.
  22. Dhawan should retire hurt after scoring 60 - 70. He is needed tomorrow and in this heat and humidity it's better for him to score asap and get 70 odd and get out.
