Ranji Trophy 22/23

Recommended Posts

Jaded as I am with the seniority culture, I will keep looking for the arrival of new prospects.

 

Top order:

Would be looking to see Jaiswal, Shaw, Dhull, Gaikwad and perhaps even Rohan Kunnummal to start knocking the door down.  While the Easwarans of the world are excellent players, I would like to see a Sehwag-like dominant force emerge in the top order.  At #3, would love to see Gill dominate.  Seems like he has stagnated a bit - would like to see him wrest a spot with some daddy knocks.

 

Middle order:

So many names, so hard to keep up.  Will Sarfaraz fade away after being ignored while showing great form recently? Maybe Patidar is it.  Maybe Tilak Verma can be the new M.O star.  But, my two favorites are Washington Sundar (dude is part of some awesome moments in Indian cricketing history) and Rinku Singh.  RS has not been shining very recently, but has an excellent avg and SR in FC.  Yeah, in FC, SR is not very important, but to me, it indicates the ability to annihilate domestic attacks.  Someone with a SR of 50 in Ranji is unlikely to succeed at the international stage as a M.O. batsman.  I just hope he gets to bat higher for UP and make some noise - there's something about him that screams "team man".

 

Fast bowling:

Will Prasidh, Tyagi, Mohsin re-emerge from injuries?  Can Umran Malik, Kuldeep Sen and Hangargekar take the next step?  Other than that, I am unaware of any new talent.  So, mainly, I wonder how can we keep dibbly-dobblies from getting too many wickets? 

 

Spin:

Will someone with a bit of wrist talent just stand out and take over?  Rahul Chahar?  Bishnoi? 

 

IPL:

Dear selectors, please let IPL not dictate test selections.

Another gem from our commentators "medium pacers bring value as they are accurate and build pressure by keeping the RR down".
That Palkar bowler is another medium pacer, and he's leaking runs heavily at a rapid pace.
 

Feel like slapping the **** out of these commentators. He must have been a trundler himself in his playing days so these kind of gems keep coming out of their mouths.

Hangargekar gets Dhull with a peach. Hit the pitch hard just outside the offstump with a bit of away movement and bounce getting the edge. Feel like this guy can easily get quicker if he works on his runup @express bowling @Suhaan @rkt.india

 

Yes..his run-up is weird. He barely gathers momentum and then the jump just feels a bit awkward.

Yes his strides are too short,glaring problem

Surely can hit more if he rectifies it
