    RAZPOR reacted to GautiMaan in Indian Middle Order vs Pak Middle Order(2011)   
    Having followed a few matches in the Asia Cup and enduring some painful batting by our middle order,it occured to me that this brand of batting was eerily similar to something I had seen before and then it struck me,it was Pak of 2011.
    Rayudu vs Younis Khan(Tie,Younis the ODI player was that bad)
    Karthik vs Asad Shafiq(Asad who?I remembered the guy but not his stats,checked cricinfo and my suspicions were confirmed-Tie)
    MS Dhoni vs Misbah(Tie,my greatest fear is MS will play a Misbah at Mohali type innings next World Cup) 
    Jhadav vs Akmal(Tie)
     
    Kudos to MSK Prasad and co for picking a team that matches a poor batting side from almost a decade earlier

    I seriously hope Rayudu and DK fail miserably in this tourney even if it comes at the cost of India being knocked out. Not gonna happen for the leech that they are. Both Rayudu and DK have already shown that they just want to hold on to their places by trying to remain not out. Playing minnows and low scoring matches is not helping either.

    And out of those 4 ODIs in Sri Lanka,  Rahul batted in only 3.
     
    In England, he played just 2 ODIs and was not out in one of them.
     
    Iyer got to bat in 5 ODIs, most probably consecutive ones.  Averaged 42 with a SR of 96 batting at 4.  But is out of the squad now, not just the playing 11.

    Just read an astonishing stat that KL Rahul hasn't got a run of more than 4 ODIs so far in his career. How insane is this?
     
    Is there a similar stat for Pandey, Kedar, DK, Rayudu?

    Selecting correct types of players for each format is necessary for maximizing the probability of consistent success of the selected players and the team.
     
    1 )   Pacers for tests and to a large extent even ODIs --   Pacers who combine pace, zip and bounce with skills including sufficuent accuracy and thinking ability.
     
    2 )  Batsmen for tests -- Batsmen with good off stump game, who are ok against bounce too and are decent against spinners.
     
    3 )  All condition spinners -- Spinners who give the ball lots of revs and can turn the ball on most surfaces,  who get some zip and bounce off the deck, are sufficiently accurate and have the googly / carrom ball / flipper / arm ball.
     
    4 )   Lower middle order batters for LOIs  ( 5 to 7  ) -- High SR batters who can start scoring from ball one, can hit big shots off pacers (  because pacers usually bowl the end overs ), are reasonably consistent and can bowl or keep wickets.
     
    So on and so forth  ...
     
    Just picking a few players because they have performed in domestic cricket or even A-team ... although they are not the correct type of player ... them failing as a result ... then drop them and pick new ones ... rinse and repeat ... makes no sense.
     
    P.s -- Wrong types of players can be chosen occasionally if they are superlative performers whereever they play,  seem very intelligent and seem to have great temperament.

    worst part is forget having an eye for talent , they dnt even learn after poor results
    When dhawan n rohit failed badly in 1st cycle of overseas- they didnt learn When raina was selected again did someone check has he solved his bouncer issue?? No. All they saw was he cleared yo-yo so he must have improved Kaul bowling in england looked very ordinary, how hard was it to judge. Rayudu keep coming back again n again, has anyone checked that his games has improved agianst pace n bounce overseas. Or are they dumb that they dnt understand that IPL is diff from international cricket. The logic of his IPL is beyond me coz when was he bad in IPL.  Karthik - 14 yrs and yet we dnt learn. He pilled on runs in domestic so what happened in england how did his feet frooze....he never had format issues   
    So players are being selected back in team after being dropped without checking if they have improved
    N same mistakes are being repeated again n again

    A teams are Thier to serve selections for the national team ,what's the point of getting teams right there if you fail so spectacularly in choosing right players for where it matters ,which is national squad.
    And whatever selections they do get right are nullified by bone headed captain's and management.Prime example is Rahul.

    I have lost all hope with this management and selectors.
    Rahul ,krunal,Siraj,khaleel,pant and others were unfortunately born in the wrong era where all the selectors and management was high on bewda stuff....
    The amount of great players coming up now ,we can only imagine what could have been with a captain like Ganguly,we would have been unbeatable

    Don't be surprised if we play with a lineup with 5 spinners ,two fast bowlers and Rayudu and Raina in the middle order in the WC in England.
    This team management and selectors are capable of anything.

    Yes ... and it could mean a few things.
     
    Dravid is positively influencing the correct selection of A-teams.
     
    And  /   Or
     
    Indian team management's influence is ruining senior national team selection.
     
    Probably a bit of both.
     
    But this difference in quality of selections of the Senior Teams and the A-teams need to be observed to get an idea of what is actually going on.

    This shows lack of ability to identify format specific players and lack of thinking ability to some extent.
     
    How will batters with poor off-stump games, like Dhawan and Rohit, succeed in test matches where the ball moves  !
     
    This team mananagement thinking that getting batting practice against the white ball  in LOIs in England will prepare them for test cricket with the red Dukes ball  ... amazing lack of vision.
     
    There is no one with thinking ability in this team management ...  something which Kumble had.

    All Indian players are mediocre before they were chosen to national side. Baat yai hai, some are still being mediocre

    Selectors themselves have been mediocre players all through their life so they don't want their chosen players to do well

    Not a fan, but Axar still is young and has time to develop. Not a poor 5th bowler he can do the containing job but for that he has to improve his batting by leaps n bounds coz at the moment Krunal is way ahead of him and much more valuable as a lower order hitter and containing bowler.

    I dnt wanna blame them also as much
    They are doing a good job with A-team , yes in areas like fast bowling their eye for talent is 0
    but they are giving the kind of player that this team mngmt is asking

    That is the problem with team mngmt they dnt have the eye
    Take test cricket , they didnt understand dhawan n rohit are not meant for test so they keep giving them chances during home games or subcontinet games 
     
    The minute the went to overseas the cycle begin again, they jst arent learning from their mistakes
     
    Yes they are not bad players, they are above avg. But if we have to be a champion side we need match winners that were an eye for talent comes which doesnt look the case right now 
     
    Sometimes i feel they dnt knw how good they are or they still living under old kind of cricket style
    Once i did write about this we play safe n conservative 
    So they feel safe with these knwn faces
     
    This is a cycle thats being repeated again n again. 
    They dnt have faith in them
    They associate inconsistency with young players...........the concept of investing in a player is not understood by current setup
