Recommended Posts

What has Sakaria done?Guy bowls in 120s

how is even ahead of Arshdeep Singh as left armer,let alone guys like Tyagi,Porel,Mavi etc

 

as a leggie Chahal has had a long rope,time to try Bishnoi and Chahar

 

Surprised no Harshal Patel too.Could  have slotted in at 8 

 

batting is mostly good but too many openers.Could have rewarded lower order hitters like Samad,Abhishek Sharma,Hooda etc

2 weak players selected who may never play for India and may not get into the final 11 of this team too but still are in team.

Rituraj is a waste specifically when shekhar prithvi devdatt Samson ishan are 5 opening options better than him. All 5 are definitely better than Rituraj who was the first covid hit cricketer and possibly a bit of a physically weak player. Shivam dubey or tewatia are all rounders and would have been  a better fit in t20 and 50 over matches.

 

Sakariya...I want to pad up and hit him all over..he is not Nattu (as skilled as nattu). Sandeep warrier or many other Pacers would be better picks. He will not be played in 11. Bad pick.

 

Pacers...Deepak chahar bhuvi navdeep are good selections but sakariya is not a pacer , not even a trundler. Will Hardik bowl?

 

Why a battery of 6 spinners? 5 would be enough in 20.

Spin sardar and  trundler sardar are in net bowlers...dont know much about them. Sandeep warrier should have been ahead of Sakariya.

Selections that wasnt needed

 

  • Manish - he aint a match winner, even in ODI he struggles on slow pitches in middle overs
  • Rana- wont last long in international cricket
  • Ruturaj- good player but to many openers
  • K gowtham- Must have been selected as replacement of Sundar 

Gowtham is good...correct  pick.

Manish and Rana are average picks.

Ruturaj is not a good pick..he wont get to play.

Here is how they shud divide games

 

ODI

 

  1. Dhawan
  2. Shaw
  3. Devdutt (even though im sure Manish will play ahead of him)
  4. Hardik
  5. Kishen
  6. SKY
  7. Krunal 
  8. Bhuvi
  9. Saini
  10. Kuldeep
  11. Chahal 

 

  • Give them all 3 games , although im sure they will rotate and Manish wud definitely be in ODI XI .instead of Devdutt
  • Kuldeep shud play all 3 games and bowl his full quote unless he is absolutely smoked. 
  • hope they make pandya bat at 4

 

T20

 

  1. Dhawan (even though i dnt want it )
  2. Shaw
  3. Samson
  4. SKY
  5. Kishen
  6. Hardik
  7. Krunal 
  8. Varun.C 
  9. Rahul Chahar
  10. Deepak Chahar
  11. Sakaria 

 

If bhuvi , kuldeep, Chahal doesnt play t20 it wont matter much as they played enough. Give these guys all 3 games. 

 

3 continuous games in each format will atleast be a fair chance.

I still can't see the logic of appointing a 36 year old as the captain of this young side. He was a terrible captain for SRH and was replaced midway in the 2014 season. Even DC went for a younger Pant. 

 

Is this because a younger player as captain leading the team well and winning both the series could mean more competition for our current captain?

Could have given Mavi a go.  Surprised that he is not even a net bowler.

Surprising why Mavi and Nagerkotti have been deemed not to be good enough to be among the top 15 pacers in the country

 

In England - Bumrah, Shami, Ishant, Siraj, Prasidh, Avesh Khan, Arzan Nagashwala

In SL - Bhuvi, Chahar, Saini, Sakariya, Ishan Porel, Sandeep Warrier, Arshdeep, Simarjeet

 

Both of them deserved to be in SL purely on potential.

some of these guys should be in the WTC and england tour.Bhuvi is fit so he should atleast be in the squad and not wasted on this tour.

Fit for tests? Not sure. Covid rules permitting, they may add him to the England test squad later if he can last the SL tour especially ODIs
