Do you like Ind’s T20 World Cup 11?

Recommended Posts

If no, what is your preferred 11?

 

While I hope that the team “competes” with whoever is chosen, my preferred 11 is something like below: 

 

Gill

Pant/Samson/KL/…

Hooda or Sundar, if batting well (to bowl too)

SKY

Sir Don (c)

DK

Tewatia (esp. Hooda  or Sundar to bowl)

Axar/Jadeja/Bishnoi/Chahal/Kuldeep/…

Moshin

Bumrah

Unfortunately we don't know how good a lot of those people are in t20is; agree that some should have been given chances a long time ago.

 

But others: Tewatia is a unique talent but has not offered enough consistency, similar with Mohsin , what have they done beyond the one IPL? (Genuinely don't know, maybe a good domestic t20er?)

 

And why drop Rohit? He's won IPLs as captain, more experienced than SDP, remains a very good t20 bat of course and has overhauled our approach to batting.

 

Don't change for changes sake

 

My only real qualms are with Virat, would like Hooda instead and would like Pant opening.

I have picked players based on watching their talent, technique, and temperament. 

 

Tewatia has improved his game - has near 360 degrees abilities and can hit both pace and spin. For #7, it is less about consistency (if you are talking about scoring big runs) and more about ability to get big shots and close games under pressure. Talking about pressure, he is a good fielder under pressure as well!  ... Similarly, Moshin is in for his skills to use bounce (can create awkward bounce), pace (can touch 150+ with effort balls for e.g., while also cleverly varying pace), & accuracy well. He can bat a bit too. 

 

In future, form/situation could change, but right now in 2022, these guys are in good shape.

Rather invest in T20 openers with better potential whose games are equally suited to Aus, have the hunger to perform and win, and take the experience of playing in world cup to help Ind win in future too (if not now).

 

At the moment, would not like to keep out an upcoming force like Gill for a player that could have been phased out in T20Is after last year' T20 WC (Already got his fair share of chances)!

Rohit, Kohli, KL, DK have to be placed in a microscope.

 

Pandya, SKY are okay for now and are X factor players at least.

 

Both those 4 positions if replaced with Pant, Gill, and 2 other X factor match winning players like Samson/Tewatia/Sundar/Kishan or who ever is in form like Patidar, Gaikwad etc. will help us select better bowlers like Mohsin etc.

 

Issue comes when you have senior culture in batting, there is no way not to carry it forward in bowling also.

 

Pathetic team, pathetic fans and pathetic coaching. What do you expect?

After the first round exits in WT20 and Asia Cup, I thought Team India' Quota of early exits in multi nations tournament is exhausted for this FY.  But No...  This is only the beginning of a new Era of Early Exits.   Our WT20 campaign kicks off from Oct 23.   I m sure our team would hv completed 'Ghar Wapsi' by Nov 5th. Always a wonderful feeling to be at home early. :cantstop:'Home is where the HURT is'.

Your team has flaws too. KL looks the worst at the moment among the top 3 and you have picked him but dropped the other two. 

 

Hooda and Sundar at 3 is again not a viable option in Australia, Sundar can end up with scores of 8(14) which will kill the momentum if we are one down after a good start. Middle order is good but no.8 is not clear here. Bowling wise, I think with those three pacers, I might look for another new bowl option in Deepak Chahar or Bhuvi Kumar instead of one of the spinners. 

 

If we keep the base of your team same and tweek a few more changes, that would be an effective team.

Absolutely not ,the spin and pace bowling concerns me ,the top 3 concerns me ,the inconsistent hitting by the lower middle order,fielding  also concerns me .

 

Tbh ,this team is a "Thakela" team with no X factor and to top that they don't show any passion or desire on field.

There are at least 4 more better teams than us who have stacked the team with t20 specialists and play the game as it is meant to be I.e entertaining!

We on the other hand are still playing players who are playing this format for 12 -13 years and other TTFs , having won nothing major in this format in intl arena .

It's a shame that the richest board with The largest resources and the biggest league is assembling such a mediocre team ,when the the field is already so weak with hardly 7-8 serious nations.

Team can always be tweaked.
 

For the 2nd opener, it is among Pant, Samson, & KL, along with any other viable option. I like KL’s talent (and his back foot game too) so if he is batting like he did in the last T20, I would consider him too. 
 

#3 pick is there to drive things (get going or get out to let SKY in) and also bowl. Hooda would be the key pick as he has that game. Sundar would come in if batting well (can be moved to #7 too with others moving a slot up). He has opened for his local teams, played some good knocks in recent IPL, & did well in Aus too (though in a different format).

 

 D Chahar can be played too at #8, however the 11 already has 4 seamers (3 specialists + the AR), so would start with a wkt taking spinner or someone like Axar who can keep it tight (that would give the team 3 spin options in 1 specialist spinner + Hooda/Sundar + Tewatia).
