The "Rahul" we deserve: The Rahul Tripathi thread

Recommended Posts

Scored 35 off 16 balls today against Sri Lanka. What are your thoughts on his innings?

 

It was a short innings but he made his intent very clear. Very different innings compared to what we've been used to.

 

I've been advocating for this guy for years and made fun of. @Ankit_sharma03 even said this guy wouldn't play for India. But he has played and he's the kind of player we need to have in T20Is.

 

Even scoring 30s or 40s at the top is okay as long as one scores at a strike rate of 150+ and make full use of the powerplay.

Tripathi at no 3 means we don't have to depend on SKY to do all the heavy lifting in middle overs.

 

He is a genuine hardworker, not very blessed or talented but he is unselfish and had shown multiple times in IPL how quickly he can turn the match around.

 

We need players like him and Shaw in our T20 setup specially on the flatter tracks. He will fail and we have to keep in mind that we can't expect consistency (SKY is just on another planet atm), but he is going to give his 100% in every encounters, that's a surety.

 

Add to that his medium pace bowling can give you 1-3 overs and he's a amazing fielder, you have a proper T20 package.

Far better than 65 ball 80 kind of innings on belter of surfaces ,these type of innings (cant say cameo in t20s)help team's cause

It doesn't hurts as balls conumed are quite less,no selfish batsmanship

More endorsements for such approach should come from every corner of Indian cricket,but 70s,80s and even the few of 2000s cricketers pay emphasis on stats building ,very very defeatist approach for lois infact not at all feasible in this t20 era that is(template)refleting on odis too

Was massively impressed since his KKR days, was one of their best players. Deservedly gets his opportunity and looked as he does usually. Brisk and unselfish. 

 

Unfortunately that such innings are called cameos by the commies, that was a great innings bringing momentum to an otherwise awful PP.

Full sapot, i like what i saw which was no different to what we have been seeing in the ipl the past few seasons. We need more players with his fearlessness and temperament in the white ball team even if they are on the wrong side of 30 like him and Sky. 

another such guy is Mayank Aggarwal who weirdly has not even debuted in T20Is

 

He's also fearless and spin hitter.
