He can be a floater. He can open and also play in the middle. Roll his arm over in case if someone pulls up something or having a terrible day.

Has a strike rate of 162 in the limited matches he played. Basically averaging 20(12). excluding not out 33(20) including not out every innings. Pandya has more like a stabilizer these days.  

There is no place for him as opener in Indian team today.

this will pretty much be the squad


  • Hooda vs Iyer vs Backup all rounder - Iyer failure hasnt helped his case despite so much backing
  • Kuldeep vs Ash vs Bishnoi- This will mostly be gut call from captain n Rohit loves both Ash n Kuldeep 
  • Deepak chahar vs Fitness (if not fit then many have a chance)


These are the remaining battles , these last spots go till last minute unless someone has done well for quite a period .

I dont see Siraj making it since they havent backed him in t20 at all 



Axar might also make it as backup AR

The series should make few things pretty obvious.


Openers(3) - Rohit, Rahul, Kishan

Middle order(5) - Kohli, SKY, Pant, D Hooda, Pandya( Pant has to fit in MO now)

Lower middle order(2)- Jadeja, DK

Spinner(2) - Yuzi, Kuldeep

Fast bowlers(5) - Bumrah, Bhuvi, Harshal, Arshdeep, Deepak Chahar 


That's 17 and add 1 more for reserves ( Bishnoi). Not really keen on picking Umran or Avesh for the 18 man squad.

@Lord, can't you see Kohli here? Kaise padhta hai re tu? :phehe:

Who bats at #3 would depend on how the rest of the 11 looks … For me, playing someone like Hooda, if he can bowl, allows the team to play a better batsman to handle pressure at #7. 

Also I am not looking for the #3 to anchor but to play an impactful knock or get out to get someone else like a SKY in early!

Question is not about who is better.  Question is who is worse between these 2. Obvious answer is S Iyer. 


Neither of them are good. Shreyas Iyer is probably bad for T20. He is still cut above Hooda in other formats. Hooda's utility hinges on his ability to bowl a few overs here and there. Honestly Venky Iyer would have been a much better choice than these 2.
