Yes, Thakare isn't the quickest. I am going to guess late 120s in longer formats. But he has certain other strengths making him a bowler to watch out for.

Yes, he is good for domestic cricket. Porel is 5-7 kph faster than him in similar mould.

Porel was the best quick from either side in the India-Saffer A series...probably with the exception of Jansen. Porel is also not as accurate for someone with his speed should be. I feel bowlers like Porel/Thakare - tall, accurate and excellent at seam - can be potent threats in certain conditions like South Africa, ENG, and even the 3rd pacer in AUS, NZ.

 

Meanwhile, left arm trash Yash Dayal of UP struggling to make an impact so far. How he conned his way to India squad is a mystery - no other explanation other than the bizarre fondness for left arm spuds.

Saw the news that BCCI may not send team to Asian games in September. .  Bunch of morons really. 

So many players & they still are reluctant to send even a B or C team. 

It's the power game and politics associated with it. Sending a team to Asian Games, CWG or Olympics will mean agreeing to the Indian Olympic Association charter which then means more government control. BCCI has always been opposed to IOA (and rightly so as it will bring them under the direct control of sports ministry. Essentially nationalisation of BCCI. The IOA (govt) and BCCI have never come to a middle ground.

No he doesnt. Moronic selections really disappointing 

They lll do same with him as they did with sky. We need hitters in T20. He can easily replace Iyer. 7 out of 10 times he will come at no 6 with 4 overs to go. And what we need is a quickfire 22 of 9 balls not laboured 22 of 17 which iyer does.

Rohit

Rahul

Kohli

Pant

SKY/ S. Iyer

Jadeja

Sundar/ V. Iyer

Chahar/ Shardul

Chahal

Bhuvi

Bumrah

 

With Shami, Siraj, Kuldeep/ Bishnoi as the bench. 

 

This looks to be the probable T20 WC squad Rohit-Dravid are building

Chahal can't bat for ****. He shouldn't be in any loi team. We will regret it if it happens. Also Rahul should never ever open in any format. He sucks as opener. He is better at 4 or 5. 

 

Rohit isn't a good opener either in loi anymore. But it is in australia. Maybe he will do ok. 

 

Hopefully it's rohit and Pant or ruturaj and Pant.

With the teams divided into so many groups, the teams would end up playing lesser games than usual isnt it?

Feel the same.. Hopefully they sort out the squad at least before Asia Cup. 

Samson Iyer SKY Pant should get as much gametime as they can have.  Samson is good against pace & has the game to excel on fast tracks in Aus like MCG & clear long ropes.

These guys need productive IPl as well

I am sure Sharukh has a role to play in T20 if not ODI.  Can they not ease him into T20 set up by playing him in inconsequential bilaterals?

Can he play bounce? Do t care for swing.. that can be trained for. Can he play vs bounce and pace? If so he should be in the team.

 Only proven players against bounce are Rohit, Kohli, Rahul. Rest are all inconsistent against bouncers. So we cannot use that criteria to select players. Raina was never good against bouncers. Made a 100 against SA in 69 balls
