Unless we start promoting those multidimensional players, how is the culture going to develop.

 

Is there any justification for Sundar warming the benches and us having to rely on someone who was declared as not fit to bowl just 24 hours back 

Hardik is a better ODI bat than Sundar, Kurnal’s inclusion is more confusing not withstanding his 50 on debut.  
 

Sundar might have played better with the tail, it’s criminal we couldn’t play 50 overs today.

 

how much batting does our tail do in nets? Does the batting coach even work on their batting?

In this day & age absolutely no excuse for not being able to at least defend and block. Most other teams now have negligible tails but Ind seem to promote one dimensional players.

 

Unless the bowler is a game changer they should be told that have to be able to bat. Play only those who can and the message will soon get through.

Why not reverse argument of not one batsman having ability to contribute with ball. Even someone like Sachin was such a useful bowler. Virat used to bowl but has stopped. Rohit I can understand. What about others? 

 

If bowlers should know how to bat then batsmen should know how to pitch in with few overs. 

I mean our bowlers cant even put the bat on the ball. I would say kohli/rohit's bowling is still better than prasidh/nattu's batting

3 bowlers should be picked based on their bowling skills only.

 

We need wicket taking bowlers.

 

If top 8 batsmen cannot do the job then we are not picking the right batsmen ... And putting the blame of their ineptitude on the specialist bowlers.

 

5. Batsman-keeper

6. Batting all-rounder 

7. Batting all-rounder 

8. Bowling all-rounder 

9. Bowler

10. Bowler

11. Bowler

 

No.8 should be a good bowler too.

8. Shardul Thakur

9. Ravichandran Ashwin

The thing is in this era of batting wickets, Tendulkar or Sehwag or Raina will still go for plenty of runs. So, part time bowlers don't work in this era but part time batsman are required because part time batters can stay at crease and score 15-20 useful runs and give support to the better batsman who is staying at crease.

 

Part time bowlers may go for 20 runs in a over and the whole momentum will be shifted by that.

In current era I believe to win you need specialist. Bowler has to be picked because of his bowling skills and not because he can bat a bit.
