India’s squad for Paytm T20I series against England announced.

Recommended Posts

Why were SKY, Pant and Kishen not picked for Aus T20Is? Now that they have been picked, will they be thrown out after a couple of failures like Samson has been?

Will Pant/Kishen play as specialist batsmen as KL Rahul was the preferred WK-batsman in LOIs?

How has Axar Patel suddenly become good enough for LOIs? Will he be dropped like Rahul Chahar without giving him an opportunity?

How is a 35 yr old Dhawan, after repeated failures in last 2-3 years, still the preferred opener?

 

Lots of questions on the chosen squad.

 

As we get closer to the T20 WC, totally expect this joke of a TM to again muddle up things like they did before the 2019 WC. 

 

BTW there preferred 11 will be

Rohit, Dhawan, Kohli, Rahul, Iyer, Hardik, Sundar, , Bhuvi, Chahar, Chahal, Nattu

Virat

SKY

SDP (Hardik)

Pant

Tewatia

Kohli has done well in recent t20is. 

Avgd 37 at 142 in 2020 and 78 at 148 in 2019. No reason for him to give up t20s

 

We need one player like him with a bunch of young hacks(the skys and kishans and samsons) and Pant. 

Sharma should give up on t20is he was never a great t20 batsman and he starts too slowly which only pays off when he goes big and that's quite rare. 

 

He has fastest T20 100, along with 3 T20 100. Kohli was great one time but now he can bash only kesrick Williams type in T20. Sharma in loi recently has performed better than Kohli. Kohli, Dhawan, Iyer type player shouldn't be in T20. It's 20 over games you don't need accumulator. Kohli should only focus on 50 over and test it ll prolong his career leave T20 to youngsters and dasher.

Why was Rahul Chahar dropped? 5 T20Is is a lot, we could have played him and Varun C in alternate games, likewise Axar/Tewatia rotated and Sundar in all 5 encounters hopefully testing his batting in a couple of games by pushing him up the order. 

Because he is a threat to the collar chewing mental midget. Chahar gets into the squad, doesn't play a game, then gets dropped. This must be the third time this is happening.

Good squad. 

Dhawan should soon be booted out and Samson brought back. That will be the combination for 2021 and 2022 WC

I think Samson missed out due to Kishan getting in. They must have thought 2 keeper batsmen (3 including Rahul) is enough. But Samson is also an excellent fielder and should have been picked. He, or any other batsman, has to be given 8-10 games to develop match changing level of batting. You can't expect rookies to come in and become match winners right away.

sanju played 7 matches and has highest score of 23. 6 of those 7 matches were all played in last year as well, so you cannot say one off chances. a good player should have grabbed those chances. He is way too inconsistent even in ipl. He don't have a single 500 run season even though he is playing full seasons since 8 years. I would rather see Ishan kishan and SKY in this series

6-7 chances are not enough for a talent like him . He  is a special talent for whom ill say 40-50 games is minimum
