Performances of Batsmen

Sarfaraz now needs a big IPL season to break the door open. Ironically he was initially seen as a street smart limited overs player initially but has turned out to be a much better FC batsman. 

 

BCCI should look at sending the India A team to England after the Ranji knockouts post IPL. The tour was scheduled last year as well. Even though the TM doesn't value A tour performances, will be good for our younger players to get some more FC cricket.

He should be selected irrespective of IPL season, but stupid selectors don't seem to realize what format players are suited for. And sarfaraz from the beginning (as a boy) was training hard for FC - he scored lots of runs in school and U19 cricket, and used to make big innings. we are finally seeing the fruit of that. at 24, he's at a good age too. needs to be selected in next 12 months IMO.

In ODIs ....

 

Pant 125 not out and Hardik 71 in a series decider under pressure, playing in the middle order.

 

Then Gill with quickfire 58 as an opener.

 

We are getting to see the core of our batting in the near future. 

 

Bodes well  !!

Picking players in right format and not mixing it is extremely important.

 

Rohit, Kohli, Rahul, Pant and Pandya are guaranteed in ODIs and T20s both at the moment.

 

SKY is excellent in T20s and has the game to do well in ODIs in lower middle order role.

 

Gill, Ruturaj and Iyer deserves to be backed in ODIs. Iyer is good in ODIs but not good in T20Is, there are lot of weakness to fix for that format.

 

Kishan and Samson are good in T20Is. 

 

Deepak Hooda has the game and multiple skills for both formats- ODIs and T20s.

 

Jadeja is excellent in tests, good for ODIs and bits and pieces in T20s. 

 

Sundar is an excellent prospect in tests but bits and pieces in LOIs.

 

Axar is a great prospect in home tests but bits and pieces in LOIs.

 

That's for batting and all rounders. Won't go into bowling on this post as this thread is about batsman.

Gill was dropped after two matches in NZ. Dumbo Kohli praised him in all his press conferences and then dumped him at first sight of failure. We could have got a fitter opener, or at least a backup.

toxic kohli era 

Backup ODI opener slot is still avl so these guys shud aim for it

Dravid should invest in both Gill & Project Iyer in ODIs...  Among young players these guys look most suited for ODIs..  And keeping 2023 WC in mind our Top 3 are in slump & perhaps all won't make it by then. 

Hooda is also another player who knows strike rotation & inns building. 

Keeping these players in the mix along with Pant & Hardik will bode well for us. 

 

Kishan Samson look more like T20 players along with SKY (who needs to be used at 5/6 in ODIs for impact.

Somehow, in world cricket, most of the best players turn out to be good to decent test players too and can play atleast 1 white ball format.

 

Yes, there are exceptions  ... but we must look to create a core of 6 or 7 multi format players ... and then fill the rest of the slots with specialists.

 

In batting, if we can get Pant and Gill to form a batting core ... maybe get another such batter too if available ... then we will make our team a lot more solid.
