Dinesh Karthik as a T20 finisher

  1. 1. Is DK the best T20I finisher that India got?

    • Yes, he is and should be in playing XI
    • No, there are much better alternatives
    • He is good but he does not add up to the team composition

Especially when one of the NSW player is Moises henriques lol

Think he meant noughties nsw team. Don't disagree there but they are being wildly overrated tbh. They were successful at a time when lot of Asian teams were below par in fitness and technology etc.

He seems to be so reliable when the target is set and he knows what needs to do with clarity.

Don't make him build an innings like in WC 2019 semi-finals (that anyways is ODIs). Allow him to finish games in T20I format like he did in Nidahas finals.
He will not disappoint the team and bring it out of rut in tight situations such as in today's IPL match vs RR.

Mind you, RR is not  a simple IPL team. They have Boult, Prasid Krishna, Saini, Ashwin and Chahal: five international calibre bowlers in their ranks and DK still pulls it off.

 

The problem with DK is, when India bats first or if he has to come in with around 8 + overs to spare, he hardly has made any noteworthy contribution in last 10 years.

Problem with having DK in Indian T20 team is who you drop and then who is your all rounder?

 

In T20s, you need 6 bowling options. Hardik and Jadeja are there currently at 6 and 7 and backups are V Iyer and Axar/Sundar. So, if you pick DK at 6 or 7, how you figure the sixth bowling option?

 

Hardik is already your 6th bowler, so that is not the problem..

The issue is if DK plays, you cannot play any of Shreyas/SKY/Venky Iyer.

 

Rohit

Rahul

Rat

Pant

DK/SKY/Shreyas/Venky

Hardik

Jadeja

4 bowlers

 

That's the likely XI.. 

Purely, on merit though, Rat should be dropped and Shreyas or SKY should play at 3 and DK/Venky at 5.

I see DK as more of a no.6. Hardik can bat at 5. His batting is good vs spinners but he struggles vs quality pacers in terms of hitting ability in death overs.

 

Best team would be :

 

Rohit (c)

KL

SKY

Pant

Pandya

Dk

Jadeja

 

But Kohli isn't getting dropped. So,no place for Surya at 3 and DK in the team.

Imagine DK batting against Pakistan in t20 World cup in Aus :hysterical:

 

Shaheen will love that. 

 

Dk is an IPL level player at best, he has no talent. 

 

 

DK would be facing Shaheen at the death not with the new ball. And we all know how tatti shaheen is at the death. 

 

If Matthew wade can, then DK certainly can.

I love how suddenly paxtan are some kind of benchmark for Loliturds just because he scored a useless soft fifty against them.. :giggle:

 

They're a nothing special side who managed to fluke a toss lottery against panoti loli. See how they'll get smashed by all the decent sides in Australia.

I dislike DK the test player and the odi player. He is a decent t20 player I will say for sure. Could he spank shaheen in death overs? Possibly. 

Should he be picked now for india? Resounding he'll no.

he is very inconsistent in ODIs. could be good in T20s but only for specific roles.

Sadly  it is hard to select players only for one role. When he fails it will look really silly. Only way he can play for India is by being a keeper not as a pure batsman. We already have plethora of keeper batsmen.

He won't bat tuk tuk so doesnt matter if he fails. Approach needs to be right

Others can a lead out of his book. Sadly KKD is never going to be an idol even in T20. People would rather try to imitate Dhoni (poor role model in t20).

 

we don't have many players who can hit from ball 1. KKD and maybe SKY can. SDP,Pant,Kishan all take time these days

we need to develop more such players. shaw is both inconsistent and unfit, but he is another who can score fast from the get go

development will help by backing when they fail

 

Currently they like 'reliable' but low SR players. And these reliable guys get out cheaply in big games

That is against new ball. But in the end overs with fielders on the fence it is harder. Raina(old one)/KKD are exceptions.

I disagree, those who can play have gotten chances.Who has missed out?
