  1. ICC WC 5th Match at Kennington Oval,London World Cup Head to Head SA 2 Ban 1 Weather - Mostly Sunny
  2. All cricketing eyes are now on the World Cup and the nerves are starting to fray. Over the course of the next several weeks, many questions will be answered by the teams and their players. One of those big questions is the composition of the Indian squad. This is the team that plays the most cricket and for whom the most data are available. Over the last year or two, many questions have been raised about age, floor, ceiling, all-round skills, ability to hold fort at #4, finishing ability, team balance, wicket-keeping, wrist vs finger spin, suitability for ODI vs T20 format, and of course, recent form. We've had everybody and their uncle chime in on why they are best suited for #4 (from Rayudu to Pujara to Rahane) or for #4 seamer slot (Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav), spinner (Ashwin). Now that all possible data are in, let's line-up the suspects and see who does not belong. I hope that every one of these guys makes me eat crow with stellar performances and bring the WC back to India, but for now, let's vote. After you vote, reply to the thread with your reasoning and who should be the replacement. In no particular order: (1) Vijay Shankar: Most recent entrant to the all-rounder and #4 sweepstakes, VS has been impressive in flashes. Some days, he looks like a million bucks with bat and on others, like a cat on a hot tin roof. Seems technically compact enough, has a little bit of power and most times, a calm head (but Nidahas ...?). He is a decent fielder, too. Now, his bowling - is it really worth discussing? Not too many opportunities to showcase it and there is no argument to be made for English conditions, because the pitches are roads and the weather will be hot and trundlers are fodder. Current form looks spotty. This selection is very interesting. (2) Dinesh Karthik: 15 years of DK. 1 big moment. In a T20 match. Against Bangladesh. The man has a lot of skills, but somehow they have not come together consistently. Should he get another chance in a big tourney like this? (3) Ravindra Jadeja: I am admittedly a huge fan of Sir, mainly because of how electric he is on the field and his ever-high effort levels. If we had to pick a specialist fielder, he is the guy. Or a test bowler. But bowling 10 overs of finger spin on flat English pitches is suspect and he is not really a finisher with a bat. What is his role? (4) K L Rahul: I have been watching cricket for 40 years and can't remember anyone as enigmatic as KLR. A prodigal son. He was oft-injured early in his career and thus never established himself, and when he got a chance in 2018-19, has not impressed consistently. But, on his day, he can be completely dominant and make batting look like a cakewalk. And he had some of those days in the IPL. But those days are few and far between, and often his technical weaknesses against the incoming ball rear their ugly head before he settles.. Moreover, what is his role in an LOI context? Is he an opener? A #4? (5) Kedar Jadhav: Again, I am a huge fan of this guy, because he is one of the grittiest over-achievers. He was selected because of his domination of domestic cricket and made a big impact early on. His batting, while not pretty, is great to watch. He works the field, keeps things moving and can hit when needed. And not to forget his horizontal off-spin. But a few things work against him: he often disappears on the batting front; he is at-best a mediocre fielder; he is often injured. If he recovers from his most recent injury, how much longer before the next one? (6) M S Dhoni: Now, for some controversy. This man is an undisputed legend of the ODI game. The best keeper to ever don the gloves in ODIs. One of the most astute ODI minds. And on an on we can go. Also add IPL 2019 superstar. But, is his IPL form deceptive? Can he keep it up against the best attacks in the world? Will his body hold up in a 50-over setting over several weeks? Should we have picked a younger 'keeper instead? (7) Rohit Sharma: Another legend of the ODI game. But his recent form has been K L Rahul-esque. He is a good catcher, but his overall fitness seems suspect. He takes a long time to settle in and if he gets out like he has recently after facing 40-50 balls, it puts pressure on the guys coming later. Should we have picked a more in-form young bat instead? (8) Yuz Chahal: Wristspinners are all the rage these days and his recent form (yeah, it's the IPL, but still ..) has been decent. But he is a liability on the field and can't bat too well. Would we have been better off picking a younger wristie like Gopal or is Yuz's experience too valuable? (9) Other: Kuldeep? Bhuvneshwar? Other?
  3. Who has got out side chance to get selected for the world cup squad
  4. India captain Virat Kohli will not play the last two ODIs of the New Zealand series, and the T20s that follow; he has been rested for those games, the BCCI said on Wednesday. Rohit Sharma will captain India in his absence. No replacement player has been named for Kohli. https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/25831098/virat-kohli-rested-last-two-new-zealand-odis Good move. Hope Gill gets to play now.
  5. Who has got outside chance to get selected for world cup
  6. India play their first T20I at the Gabba on November 21, after which the series moves on to Melbourne and Sydney. Then comes a four-Test series before the tour finally winds down with three ODIs starting January 12.
  7. Team for 4th odi Rohit Dhawan Kohli Rahul Jadhav Pant Jadeja Kuldeep Bumrah Khaleel Umesh.
  8. India odi team is too dependent on their top three.Most of the time they sail the team through. India' s middle order consists of Raina, Dhoni, Karthik, pandey, Rahane, Rayuddu etc. The team management is averse to blood youngsters so Iyer, Pant,Hooda,Rana are not going to get selected. Also as per team management, Dhoni is not going to retire uptill he enjoys the game. So the contenders for the no 4 spot are Raina, Rahane, Pandey, Rayuddu,. The team management is not considering Rahul for the no 4 spot as for them the batsman at no 4 should be able to roll his arm over for 2,3 overs. Jadhav had a decent outing as he was able to play at a good average & was also a handy bowlers.His injury has highlighted the middle order problem The selectors also complicated it by selecting Raina in his spot. Considering the players in the recogning for the no 4 spot,if he is full fit, Jadhav could solve the middle order problem of our odi side.
  9. With the series nicely poised at 1-1, the focus now shifts for the decider. The Indian team will be looking forward to getting back to their winning ways while completing a yet another ODI series win on English soil. Thehe Englishmen will look to continue their stupendous form and the seal the ODI series with a win in the final match. England ODI Squad: Eoin Morgan (C), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Jos Buttler (WK), Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Jake Ball, and James Vince. India ODI Squad: Virat Kohli (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, MS Dhoni (WK), Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Hardik Pandya, Siddarth Kaul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Suresh Raina, Umesh Yadav, and Axar Patel
  10. Riding on an impressive Twenty20 International series win, an upbeat India will eye another dominant performance against hosts England in the three-match One-day International series, which begins at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday. With the 50-over World Cup scheduled to be held in the UK next year, the ODI series will give Virat Kohli an ideal opportunity to get a fair idea of the conditions that his team are expected to encounter around the same time next year. Squads: India: Virat Kohli (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shreyas Iyer, Siddarth Kaul, Axar Patel, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. England: Eoin Morgan (capt), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Joe Root, Jake Ball, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Mark Wood.
  11. Controversial topic but I have felt this about Rohit for a while (haven't run a statistical check), I don't think he has the technique to be an effective opener overseas against good quality seam attacks. He is overly defensive and saps momentum away from the rest of the lineup. He struggles with the moving ball (e.g. Amir in CT Final) when conditions suit and struggles to hit back of a length deliveries. Already in the game during the first over to More Morkel, two half volleys were bowled but because he's camping on back foot he didn't have the confidence to go on the front foot and punish the loose deliveries. I know its sad to think this because our middle order is really poor at the moment and our opening 3 are our main strength, but I think compared to other countries e.g. England, Rohit weakens the attacking potential of our top 3. As I type he hits a beautiful six...lol! Don't feel he does that often enough though...I hope he continues to prove me wrong today
  12. Now that we know that the springboks are clueless with the wristies, isnt it time to bring in another spinner and close out all exits for them. Axar can do what Pandya can do with the bat, and I don't think he will have to do much either, with the way things are shaping up . Will Kohli bring Axar in place of Pandya?
