Almost everything is wrong with Indian T20I team

No risk cricket is their tag line when high risk cricket is the most popular format

And defensive sides have never won WCs,NZ are prime example (look million dollars only in front of us)

This timid mindset defeats the very purpose of T20! It's only 20 overs, and preserving wickets till the start of the 18th over is silly. Only SKY is true to the spirit of T20 and is always busy scoring runs. And even he tightens up in big games as he knows the onus is on him to carry the team. If he had one more free scoring batsman for support, he wouldn't feel as much pressure.

This is what exactly I was worried, a couple of failures and then again the youngsters will be back under scrutiny.
In compariso, the RRK alliance will keep on getting a free pass for the whole tournament just coz they had a glorious past.

Again, we shouldn't fit Pant and Kishan together, only one of them shall play as they both are similar pattern batters (block or bang bang with no middle ground) hence only suitable at the top, plus they both are keepers so one should be suffice. We need a Prithvi Shaw, a Gill type batter with them who is right handed and can score as a brisk pace exploring the other dimensions. We'll know that Kishan and Pant are aggressive batters who like to hit ball in the air, however as constant criticism has led Pant to curb his instincts down, who know maybe the same situation is happening now with Ishan kishan as well, considering our bowling weaknesses is now known by every team.

Hooda is trying from his end but somehow he's finding the fielders, but still he is someone who can be used as a floater, maybe play him for 5-10 matches consistently and see where he fits properly. Unlike Shreyas Iyer he doesn't have any glaring weakness against short ball so can still be used as an spin basher while managing decently against pace. SKY need support from other batters and this constant chopping and changing isn't gonna help here. With Pandya and a susceptible back, you need an additional bowling option who can cover him during the match.

Biggest issues are in our bowling, we are playing with a at best 2 over "spearhead"...Arshdeep will have his off days, while our spin option is lolworthy. The day we will have a strong bowling attack, it will give our batters freedom to play the way they like.

Agree with weak mindset theory bt new gen. Ind players lacks what it needs to be good T20 players thats why they have to pick DK (a semi retired player).

 

Younger player do not have power or innovative game. All these are captains of their IPL teams where they can dictate how they want to play.

So then there has to be something to do with themselves not able to play modern style white ball cricket.

 

Situation of Bowling is brought upon by TM and selectors themselves, there are so many high pace bowler in India right now that they can lent to other teams but TM has their life stuck to Bhuvi. If better senses prevail then bowling can be sorted in seconds. 

 

There seems to be no white ball batter in younger player.

Pant and Iyer have been disappointing in past 1 year in T20s. They have consistently flopped and not shown any improvement.

 

Neither does Deepak Hooda or Ishan Kishan shows enough assurance that they can do well in this format or make a high impact. 

 

Only Suryakumar Yadav seems to be something really extraordinary and Pandya is having good days going in his peak years.

 

Pant has not got a fixed position in continous games. Here he opened after playing in MO in WC. Let him open a few games and then decide.

 

Kishan has done okay in opportunities he got. 

 

There are still guys like Samson,Shaw etc who are still waiting for their chance.

 

These 2 games can't justify continuous backing of seniors

At some point, you have to become a senior. Pant has played 50 T20s, he is not emerging player or anything.

It's not about position. He failed in IPL too. Heart says he should get more chances but I am tired of expecting his comeback.

 

We have lefties like Tilak or Rinku who can play down the order. Better try them.

its not about Pant but current top 3.

 

if Pant doesnt work, sure drop him but replace him with someone new instead of going back to those who already failed.

 

Its just that there's a chance he can find his correct approach at opening if he does it for few games continously. If not we can always try someone else.

 

He was okay in this year's IPL

people have worked him out in t20s, just bowl very wide outside offstump. in tests, he is still fine since he can pick his shots and play dot balls

that can be worked upon. 

 

Also think he needs a break. Plays every game in all formats
