    at least Pujara scores at home.  He is Bradman in Asia.  Without him, we would be losing games at home as well like we could have lost Aus test series at home last year.  You will always have some batsman who wont do well everywhere and that is not a problem.  Problem is others who are not doing well anywhere.

    The question is whether those in the scheme for the WC are the best choices. And what is the back up plan if some of these guys get exposed in Aus and NZ

    With an avg of 62 scored at a SR of 96 in subcon, Pandya is someone who can score big runs quickly to turn a session 
     
    Also is an useful 5th bowler as he bowls at 140+ ..... He is someone who can be used to bowl pacey bouncers effective on grounds such as Perth

    To bring experienced players like Rahane,Raina,Dk or Pandey the ship has sailed for the likes of Iyer,Shaw or Gill to make the squad.

    zen reacted to Suhaan in Sam Curran what an all rounder   
    Bhai team is craving for a seamer allrounder,we cant have four bowlers toiling hard in an off day(when opposition bats are all over us)and get injured,Pandya is not the only problem
    Which genuine batsman would you play in place of him?
    Or which genuine bowler would you play for him?
    I think its matter of time we find his like for like replacement
    But by the time if he improves by leaps and bounds ,we will be the only ones who will be benefitted

    In England.
    4th Test - Average speed 85 mph, top speed 90 mph
    3rd test - Average speed 86 mph, top speed 90 mph
    2nd test - Average speed 84 mph top speed 90 mph
    1st test - Average speed 83 mph, top speed 86 mph
     
    In South Africa
    1st Test - Average speed 84 mph, top speed 89 mph
    2nd Test - Average speed 83 mph, top speed 88 mph
     
    Basically he is a 83-85 mph bowler in Tests and can bowl 90 mph (145+ not just 140+,and no its not a couple of 140+ deliveries, there are a dozen of those or more in each match).
     
    Should he bowl better? Definitely.
     
    With bat, he averages 62 in Asia, 29 away (much like some of our front line batsmen) and picks a couple of wickets each tests bowling 10-12 overs. IMO thats decent enough for now as the 5th bowler but as he plays more, he has to do better with both bat and especially ball, else his career won't be long.

    Which is why Pandya is promoted as he offers balance as he is a better batsman (avg of 62 with a SR of 96 in his strong zone) at #6-7 and can effectively bowl 8-10 overs per inning as the 5th bowler 
     
    PS 
    If he had played most of his games in subcon, he may have been called Sehwag part 2 or something as he has an avg of 62 and SR of 96

    Pandya has performed in SL too. Has a 100 iirc 
     
    If the purpose of this thread is to praise Curran, it is great. If it is to use Curran to bash Pandya, it is not interesting and falls flat
