Pant needs to replace Dhawan as opener & Gill needs to replace Kohli at #3

I rate him but form also matters. Seems out of form. You just can’t play cricketers on name.

 

Pant is obviously a proven performer and established name even though has some way to go.

 

He is? Just had a good IPL including final. Has only played OT Test since that.

Rohit is here to stay. Dhawan and Kohli needs to make way for now. Play guys like Rutu and Gill/Padikkal

Totally forgot about Padikkal! 
 

Is he still in the scheme of things? I knew he was last year and was even picked for the SL tour when all the seniors were in England for the WTC!

Please no

 

You know what they say. If it ain’t broke….

 

he has done so well at no.4/5 and has nailed that spot. Finally we have a quality middle order batter in ODIs, why move Him to a different role?

 

I would say one of Shaw/Kishan/Rutu/Padikkal can replace Dhawan right now at the opening spot

 

as for no.3 I would seriously consider Tilak Varma if I were a selector, kid shows a lot of promise already as a batter and can chip in with a few overs as well if required

Rohit

Shaw/Gill

Gill/kohli

Pant

KLR(wkt)

Pandya

Jadeja

 

Best team! Only problem is Shaw's fitness, when Rohit and Pant came into team, they were pretty fit. Shaw needs to be fit to get a go for a start. Once he becomes an integral part, slight differences can be ignored as form and performance matters more and also there won't be time to work on your fitness as much with so much cricket.

jaiswal and dhull should be in the running too for opening, if tilak varma is under consideration for no. 3. however, all 3 need 1-2 proper seasons under their belt.
