    The swashbuckling openers

    These swashbuckling openers like jayasurya bullied poor indian trundlers and avg spinners many times. They played like hack munro & guptill does in current era. Would stand no chance against current indian attack. Jayasurya: Sehwag: See sehwag's attacking cricket against Australia with avg of 21. That's what we need from our current openers. Quick fire 20s.

    The swashbuckling openers

    This op picks so many random stats to prove his point. I can make any great player look avg if i have to do by using random stats. Failed in this % of innings and that crap. Players are not going to make like 70%+ of 50+ scores in their odi career.

    Sehwag in odis is overrated. Just because he gives you quick start that doesn't mean work is done. How many matches he won all alone? In seaming conditions idk when he scored hundreds? tell me few pls.

    The swashbuckling openers

    wait they scored 10 ball 15 runs when they failed so how can you say they are useless?

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    You are taking as if he only struggles when ball swings. Tell anyone to open and if it swings they will struggle. Sehwag and gambhir have struggled too. Gambhir wasn't attacking he played more like rohit and dhawan plays like sehwag (big slower than sehwag)

    Doesn't matter if he scores 5000 runs or becomes bradman. He fails in 58% of matches and scores at strike rate of 65 when he fails to convert big.
  7. Dude would be better if you create new thread than editing title of thread every time there is new series/match being played.

    Come on you have stretched it too far now. There is impact which is seen in a player. See recent west indies series where even virat's ton didn't help us win match. It was Rohit's two century and 1 not out 60 odd run which helped to win. In Aus 1st odi it wasn't his fault that all failed together. Stats don't tell everything.

    I can understand rohit starting slow in t20s and rahul/pant or other batsman being better opener than him but in t20s even with slow starts and being most inconsistent i would keep him in my side.
  10. True i prefer them because of statsguru atm.

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    Dude for real what's point of this stat? you want rohit to fail with better strike rate? that will mean he scores 10 (9 balls) or 18 (13 balls) type of innings? He is going to fail like everybody else. His avg when he scores less than 50 is 13. He scores 13 with strike rate of 65 that means like 21 ball 13 runs when he fails to convert into big score. Do you really think out of 300 balls those 8 ball are that big issue? Everybody has pros and cons. Rohit can't play quick in power play. Dhawan can't convert his quick fire knocks & goes hiding in whole series many times. Kohli can't score big sixes in 1st innings in end overs. Dhoni bats like rohit does in powerplay.

    Also tell me how many times we need to chase 300+ score since 2017? I am sure it's very rare since bumrah & kulcha started playing together. Batsman don't have to take alot risk as well so they go safe like 45 - 50 runs in 10 overs which isn't as bad as you are making it out to be. If Rohit gets out playing quick in 1st 10 overs & kohli has bad day do you really think dhawan can save us with his quick fire knocks?

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    Idk why are we even wasting time on discussing this. Rohit & Dhawan are going no where till 2023. Dhoni is going no where till 2020 t20 wc. We can keep making dream 11 but in end you know who is gonna play.

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    Stop being delusional. I know pant has ability and all but in LOIs he hasn't show his other abilities than slogging. I would love to see pant opening in t20 worldcup next year but for now with just 5 odis to go we can't change what's already worked good for us in past. In this way Australia should start opening with Maxwell, India should have opened with Yuvi or Raina ahead of Tendulkar & Sehwag/Gambhir.

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    Rohit has impact on his days. Your expectations is too high from him. If you see openers all around world they might be more attacking but when they face quality bowlers all go hiding. It's fact. In case of bhuvi he might have impact but his days are rare (atleast in odis) but it's great he has changed since Aus odi series and if he performs same way then i have no issue for him playing in XI of worldcup but if he fails in Aus series then shami surely deserves chance ahead of him.

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    Okay so you are telling me that he fails badly in 55% of game. Let's consider his partner for now who hasn't scored century since asia cup. How many matches has Dhawan won due to his quick fire starts? I remember 1 hundred & few starts in SA. Went hiding in whole england & ireland tour. Came back strong in Asia cup. Went hiding in West indies tour (5 odis, 2 t20s). Went hiding again in Aus odi series. Scored similar like Rohit in NZ series. For Rohit i know his struggle in SA where he scored 1 odi century in SA, 1 odi & 1 t20 hundred in england (in decider). Asia cup was great like dhawan had + scored imp runs in final. West indies he had more impact than even kohli whose 2 centuries came in draw & loss. In Aus tour scored century when team's top & middle order collapsed. Dhoni choked badly. Gave good start in 2nd odi. NZ tour he had avg like dhawan.

    Ganguly & Dravid played with strike rate of 70-71 when tendulkar was having 90+ strike rate in 90s. Lara many times played such innings.
  18. Nikola

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    I know he will score big or get out early but that doesn't mean you start blaming him for all these looses. Many times he & kohli bats such way to save from middle order collapse. His strike rate wasn't high in asia cup as well but he was playing safe.
  19. Nikola

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    In this way lara, dravid, tendulkar, ganguly type of players should have never played odi cricket. We need only sehwag, gilly, pant, dhawan kind of batsman who will score consistent 20s and 30s.

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    ^^ His highest innings of 48* which is considered as slow helped us to win asia cup final. http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8532/scorecard/1153255/bangladesh-vs-india-final-asia-cup-2018 Everyone knows he takes like 15 - 20 balls and scores 5 - 10 runs and most of time he either gets out of scores big. So chances are when he gets out early his stats will show his strike rate is low. You want him to fail by scoring 5 ball 10 runs?

    Where were england's quick fire openers during india series? All went hiding and we were without main bowler. If not root's hundred they would have lost even odi series like they lost t20 series. Attacking trundlers or poor bowlers which guptill, finch, roy, hales and other batsman are master at & when they are to face best bowlers they go on hiding. Why don't you go deep and put all stats together of them? Even Kane williamson who is considered as underrated batsman is most overhyped player in world cricket right now.
  22. Nikola

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    Dude you want someone like roy or guptill who will fluke boundaries against trundlers and score quick fire fifties. Rohit is 2nd ranked odi batsman for reason. You can discredit him in t20 for his method but in odis he is perfectly fine. Don't tell me you want pant to replace him who has done nothing than slogging every single ball. Rohit & Dhawan both have scored more runs than kohli in 2013 ct, 2015 worldcup, 2017 ct & both were top scorer in asia cup too. Better shut up now.
  23. Should force ICC to not play in league matches atleast.
  24. Won without their 2 best batsman. Chandimal & Matthews.
