Shardul , the Medium Pace All rounder. Now Competition to Hardik

Recommended Posts

The way he played starc , cummins and Hazel and also lyon, he is definitely one who will be in future India ODI/T20/Test Team.

 

This Innings will be a game changer for his career. HIs batting Talent will be recognized now. 

 

He is a pace all rounder , only genuine pace all rounder after Hardik.

 

I think Virat will keep an eye for him now.

 

Washie will be the spinning all rounder next to Jaddu. I see tough days ahead for yuzi , Kuldeep . good days ahead of washie, Varun chakrawarthy and shadam Nadeem etc...

 

guy like Umesh will not be picked unless he is not at the top of his art and may be Shardul picked ahead of him.

 

Also bad days ahead of strokeless wonders like Pujara who can turn Matches into draw as India will be targeting to win matches more...

Good to have competition. Also, think India's ODI/T20 team is too one dimensional, meaning all the batsmen cant bowl. If one of the bowlers have an off day, dont have any other options to fall back on. Compare this to earlier sides which had Sehwag, Yuvi, Raina, Ganguly etc who could bowl. This is where all rounders will make the difference. But feel like Shardul has to prove a lot more to be reckoned as an all rounder, think Washington Sundar has a better chance as he has already done decently in T20s as a bowler.

I think odi is our weakest format due to selection issue and we are still a top 2 side there too ROFL. That's the funny part.

I seriously doubt Pandya will play any tests from here on..  Either he works on his physical conditioning to add more Muscle mass or his Back issues will keep troubling him.  I think he knows that well & will try to prolong his career by being a LOI specialist & think we need him back there. 

Overall Pandya is a Superior talent but him being injury prone will prove to be his biggest enemy for his Test dreams.

Great effort by Lord Thakur in this test but let's not kid ourself, Thakur averages 16 with the bat in first class. He's a good utility player to have as a back but he's no competition to Pandya. Pandya's ceiling is way higher, he could be India's flintoff

Dear he is a genuine talent with the bat. earlier his batting skills could be less but as of today He is a better bowler than Hardik and a little bit less of a batsman than Hardik.

 

He is way better than a Dubey or Vijay or other "wanna be Pace all rounders". 

 

His bowling was probably even better than Siraj in this Test, he got 7 and siraj got 6 wickets.  He does give away some runs but once he plays fr India regularly , he will improve.

 

best past is he bowls from 130 to 143K range with a lot of balls between 135 to 140K , he balls fuller length and can get little swing.

 

once ishant shammi Umesh Boom are available , Siraj saini and shardul wil compete for back up bowler slot, i dont see Nattu competing in Tests. At his pace , even snicks wont carry to fielders.
