Ok this is the bottom line 

 

Out of 65 ODIs he played, Pandya has 1 50 chasing successfully in Indore against Aus. None outside India. If Jadeja is useless in ODIs, Pandya for 6 years has returned zilch on investment. we need a reliable MO. Tuk tuk Rohit is not a solution in retort. He has been winning more than the unreliable MO in last 5 years.
 

And people here compare him to Kapil Dev, Ben Stokes.. Even Chaminda Vaas was a better matchwinner


This thread is not on SDP but on the “top order” where some players have been playing since years. SDP is just one out of 4 MO slots (25%) and there too he has batted at #6-7, while those two form 2 out of the top 3 (66%).
 

Note that Tuk Tuk Sharma who debuted in 2007 was himself called Maggi noodles or whatever in his first 5-7 years (Not sure if you supported him at that time). He only found his space once sent to open (so relatively a failure in middle order). 2-3 good years in a career spanning 15-16 years (that too after playing years of international cricket) doesn't make anything worthwhile (if criticizing players who have played far less and that too when someone started out mostly as a bowler and contributes through multiple skills) :winky:

India  backed cameo kings instead of innings builders who can finish in the middle order. 

 

This match is from the 90s. India was 58/0 suddenly reduced 64/4.  Lost 4 wickets for 6 runs.  Then Azharuddin exhibited the art of singles/twos taking.  He hit a grand total of 5 fours. But strike rate in the end was 94.  India came extremely close before they imploded.  3 early wickets should absolutely mean nothing. Rest should be able to develop a partnership and resurrect the innings.

Many world cup winning sides have suffered collapses in their journey. They managed to come back into the game. Australia in 1996 in the semis were 15/4 ,   In 2003 world cup they were 84/7 against NZ.  India was 17/5 in 1983 world cup against zimbabwe.  Teams who have the ability to overcome adverse situations win world cups.  Not completely depending on the top order.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BTw who can forget 24 yo Raina playing first match in wc11 india were already 6 down at 185 against aus chasing 265 and he build partnership with yuvi and won that crunch match against rampging 

 Lee and Tait. Not only that he went ahead and played an all important knock against pak in sf some 50 runs which took us india past 250 and we won 2 back to back crunch games which were our nemesis for long time. Now that is what you call remarkable performance at crunch time. Rains still mocked and laughed around by people of being dhoni stooge and a short ball failure. Inspite of having all those limitations he played selflessly and help us win wc and now you see this hopeless mo where a chapri player has already announced as GOAT and better than Kapil and Stokes. Looks like some people have no shame though they shipped to self annointed first world but still post third class junk on ICF .:laugh:

Not people only some first world junk analyst.:phehe:. I am surprise that we have die hard fans for chapri player like Pandya. This is the lowest one can stoop to player worshipping.

I see that you attempt to write against me on various threads but I have zero interest in you  ... If all you do is copy other people's words and use them back, along with making stuff up, waste your time ... There are tons of folks like you on social media

IMO we need deepak chahar and/or thakur in our lower order. both Thakur and chahar have proven that they can score in pressure situations as evident from Sa odi series and eng test series.

besides Shami no one else can bat. If we replace chahal with another bowiling alrounder like Krunal we will have a good batting unit . only bumrah will be the one that cannot bat.

But I know this will not be the case as they will always prefer the traditional 4 bowlers win which one can hoick some runs (like shami but not a proper batsmen) and 5 batsmen and 2 AR. we can have 2 proper bowlers+ 4 AR and 5 bastmen

Question should be like can the middle order actually bat?. Today was a good opportunity for the middle order to stand up and chase this relatively 250 odd score?. What is sky, pant and jaddu doing?

 

Hardik Bondiya is a regular failure with the bat in int'l cricket!! The less said the better

No whenever top 3 fail its crunch situation and mo lead by chapri Bhai and superuseless Jadega is not responsible to chase or clear the mess created by top order. If we win due to top order performance it's due to their stat padding and when we loose, it's just that top order can't handle pressure.

familiar top order failings when the pitch has something in it for the bowlers. this same trio are bound to run away once they face boult, shaheen, any left-arm pacer. and middle order can't soak up the pressure either

You must kidding, or you have no idea what you are talking about. Do you think those top three have scored  more than 80 odi tons on just flat wickets.

Instead of running away with their tail between their legs, its their bat.


Absolute cowards of Indian Cricket. Im ashamed of them. In particular Kohli and Dhawan, useless, irrelevant and too old.

 

Disgusting strike rate, disgusting effort when the team needs them.


Can only perform on dead pitches.

Well The top 3 have actually scored against the likes of Amir, Shaheen, Starc in World cup, Asia cup, wt20. 

 

You only remember the failures, that's your problem and not their inability.

Mukesh Chaudary, the upcoming left arm CSK seamer, can create panic in this top order :lol:

 

For Boult, Shaeen, etc., these would be seen as easy pickings

I don't think mine was a dig at Pandya. Your nickname SDP is more of a dig comparing him to Sir Don. It seems very sarcastic given his numbers. He started out as an allrounder as  late order hitter in T20s. Just like Jadeja, his batting skills are overrated in ODIs and Jadeja has better performance numbers. Mine was a lament of Indian  cricket since 2011. We have never found somebody of the calibre of Yuvraj, Raina, Dhoni in ODIs. All replacements have failed and we are reaching SFs in WCs based on Top order blitzs alone. I guess India missed the boat to nurture MO bats like Ambati, Jadhav, Pandey, etc all didn't get enough chances. We have given Pandya and Jadeja enough chances to criticize they didn't get enough. But still, even today, we have to win matches based on Top 3 batting only. Pant has some good batting in India recently. But he is very unreliable. Other teams have good MOs and explosive open batters. We have careful openers who believe in bat through the innings , maybe it was Dhoni philosophy after 2011. Lambe race ke ghode ODIs mein haarte hain.

Great point, he put his hand up during crunch situations, played another gem batting at three against SA in 2010 t20 world cup, hit a fine partnership with vvs against sl in 2010 on a fifth day pitch. Yusuf won a few games to with the bat.

ARs batting at #6-8 are in to provide balance to the side, while those batting in the top order (#1-3) are usually specialist batsmen. AR's contribute in multi areas, while specialist have to focus on one discipline. If specialist bat like ARs and that too in the top order, the preferred batting slot for most batsmen in LOIs, it may be time to bring in those who can bat like specialist batsmen: 

 

Below are the stats in ODIs at #6-7:

 
Primary team India 
Opposition team Australia  or England  or India  or New Zealand  or Pakistan  or South Africa  or Sri Lanka  or West Indies 
Batting position between 6 and 7 
Qualifications runs scored greater than or equal to 250  and matches played greater than or equal to 20 
Ordered by batting average (descending)

SDP, since you are focused on him, is among the best, while bringing in pace bowling, which India struggles to produce, and excellent fielding to the mix. He has a better 50+/innings ratio than Raina and Yuvi in the lower middle order (#6-7). Yuvi hit a 50+ score in 1 out of 6 innings and Raina in 1 out of 8 innings, while SDP in only 28 innings so far goes at 1 in 5 innings and expected to get better! ... For reference, Dhoni hit 1 50+ score in 4 innings, Jadhav roughly 1 in 11, Azhar 1 in 13, and Kapil 1 in 14. 

 

Only a handful of players have averaged 40+ in the lower middle order and that too helped by a relatively large # of not outs. Even those who bat in top order (#1-3) have not done well in the lower middle order (#6-7), for e.g. Tuk Tuk only averages 24 and has 1 50+ score in 18 innings. 

 

 

Quote

I guess India missed the boat to nurture MO bats like Ambati, Jadhav, Pandey, etc all didn't get enough chances.

 

Since cricket has evolved, those you listed  are not going to be batting at #6-7 unless they can bowl. Jadhav had a good run as he may have played during his purple patch but he is not an option now. Even IPL teams don't play him. 

 

 

I understand that KL-Rohit-etc may be your favorite players but they are specialist batsmen assigned to do a role. Can't hide by blaming #6-7.  If they want to bat like #6-8 (and ARs), while batting in the top of the order, better to bring in other batsmen ... Among the key reasons that the thread focuses on those slotted in the premier batting positions (#1-3), based on the "current abilities".

Yusuf almost single handedly won us a match in SA smashing 10 sixes.
