Good old familiar LOI scorecard!

Recommended Posts

If chapri Pandya has not exposed enough in 7 years he will keep getting exposed gng forward as well. He is the most experience guy after top 3 along with Jadeja. People who watch cricket live and doesn't read stats to judge players already know what Pandya and Jadega(loi) brings to the table. They are the 2 most superuseless players played loi on the name of AR for so long. If Pandya is so called ar why don't he bowl even 5 overs in every match. Very soon these oldies would go out than this so called fake AR can't hide in the guise of top order failure. Maxwell and many other team has lower order batter who bowl enough overs and win matches time and again for their teams.

How are they missing too many games? 

 

CT 2017 final, WC 2019 semi,WC 2021 two games, recent series v WI

 

Thats just from top of my head where they failed. I'm sure there are more.

 

Its the easiest batting position where everyone lines up to bat still they keep playing without success

Yes everyone knows  they flopped in big matches but they took the team to those big matches.Let these bozos do something in regular matches first. How long do we have to wait for these bozos to perform even in regular matches.

If it is easiest position and these bozos like Pandya and Jadeja  want to play as openers let them do in IPL and other matches first and show the selectors they are capable of playing as openers.

 

One more thing we are not asking these guys to win any world cups.  We are not even asking them to win bilateral matches consistently. Performing once in while after 8 odd years is not too  much to ask.

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

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, and Azhar 1 in 13. 

 

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.

 

 

 

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). 

 

In keeping the OP in mind, my argument was in the matches where India has chased and won. Pandya has one 50 in 6 years. Everyone fares well when setting a score playing first. India cannot chase well when top 3 fails. Period. Or even set a score batting first when top 3 fail. MO value can be assessed only when chips are down.

With IPL win, he is considered captaincy material. Even now, after IPL win, we can see him yelling expletives at all players and also at fielders who are not paying attention. He yelled at a player who was at the boundary line drinking water when he was setting the field before the start of the over.  Perfect role for him to be in the 11 as a non-performer (eg set by Tony)

While it may have the scorecard of the recent match, OP does not focus on chasing only. It covers scenarios like the recent matches in the T20 WC against Pak & NZ where Ind batted first.

 

The MO has some cool performances. For e.g. SDP only recently delivered the best performance for Ind in T20s by scoring a 50 and picking up 4 wkts. The series against SA, where DK, SDP, etc. played crucial knocks. And versus Ireland too ... SKY recently scored a 100 too in the 3rd T20s (Ind rested SDP in that game). 

 

In the last ODI discussed in the OP, where no player from both sides scored a 50, Ind's #5-8 scored 100 runs with most getting out in trying to go for a win (keep up with RR) and not play for an individual 50 or a not out. 

 

Sorry buddy, the specialist batsmen in top order cannot hide. They have already failed in 2 out of last 3 games, which is rinse and repeat of their performances in many key games: 

 

 

BATTING   R B 4s 6s SR
Rohit Sharma (c) lbw b Topley 0 10 0 0 0.00
Shikhar Dhawan  c †Buttler b Topley 9 26 1 0 34.61
Virat Kohli  c †Buttler b Willey 16 25 3 0 64.00
Rishabh Pant  c sub (PD Salt) b Carse 0 5 0 0 0.00

 

 

 

INDIA INNINGS (Target: 216 runs from 20 overs)
BATTING   R B M 4s 6s SR
Rohit Sharma (c) c Salt b Topley 11 12 26 2 0 91.66
Rishabh Pant  c †Buttler b Topley 1 5 7 0 0 20.00
Virat Kohli  c Roy b Willey 11 6 8 1 1 183.33

 

 

PS Add to that the  poor performances against a left-arm pacer.

Nothing wrong in Pandya yelling at Kohli ,Rohit or any other player who is not paying attention.

I have not questioned Pandya in T20s since his resurrection in IPL. You bring up T20s to this discussion. I question his value in ODIs just like Jadeja’s . Keep the topic to ODIs when chips are down.

The topic focuses on LOIs which includes both ODIs & T20s ... The scorecard in the OP was posted after Ind's top order repeated its performance of the 3rd T20 in the 2nd ODI, w/ a left-arm pacer calling the shots. 

 

PS in ODIs too, I showed that SDP scores 1 50+ score in 5 innings (and getting better), which is only next to Dhoni's, who has played in tons of games. If you are judging #6-7 from how those in #1-3 bat, Tendulkar falls short too. 
 

If you are taking the resurrection in the recent IPL as the starting point, SDP has only batted once in ODIs so far!

They do perform.Don't forget they contribute in all 3 facets. And usually have good game in atleast one. Like Pandya yesterday.Both of them did relatively well in 2019 semi  too after the start,specially Jadeja. 

 

They arent going to make 100s or take 5fers simple because they arent specialist. Their biggest job is to balance the side.

The top 3-4 have the best opportunity to score 100s ... Among those who have played at least 20 matches against major teams at #6-7, Ind has only 8 100s in roughly 963 ODI innings, which is 0.0084% ... Unlike the top #1-3, guys lower down do not even get to bat in all the games. Despite such challenges, we still have guys scoring a couple of 90s in Aus, 70 odd in CT final, 70 odd in 2019 WC SF, ...

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. 

 

yes, when they win trophies, I will remember them. not some sh**ty bilaterals. that's my choice.

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.

yes, the vast majority of those tons were on flat wickets. pulling up a handful of counterexamples is easy, but most were on flat wickets and typically in bilaterals.

 

I have not seen this trio score 100s in KOs of world tournaments on tough pitches (with 1-2 exceptions)

Show me one odi 100 by any Indian batsman on tough wicket in knock out matches in last  30  years?

if there is a KO in a world tournament, this trio will go missing. as simple as that.

 

middle order will then have to bail them out, which they also fail at admittedly.

 

A mediocre team that is content with, and revels in, this mediocrity.
