I know, I want Kishan too.

 

But he's not big enough star to replace Rahul. Pant is.

 

 Rahul was preferred over Pant as wk batsman.

Inspite of 200 by Kishan Rahul was made wk the very next match.Rahul can just take a break for personal reason and walk in the playing 11 .

Pant hasnt scored 200.

 

Pant scored ton in England and has big star power to push him out. Kishan has to take every chance to reach that level

The team is more or less settled for the world cup.

 

Assuming Pant will not recover sufficiently in time, Dhawan permanently dropped and Samson a wildcard, these are the 7 batsman going forward

Rohit
Gill
Kohli
Iyer
KL  ( wk)
Sky

Kishan  (wk)

For the allrounders, it is pretty straightforward that only these 5 will be considered since Deepak Chahar is injury prone.

Jadeja

Axar
Washington
Pandya
Shardul


Spinners are the easiest since we didn't develop anybody besides these 2.

Kuldeep
Yuzi


The 4 fast bowlers are more or less finalized assuming Prasidh is not able to recover and Arshdeep a T20 specialist.

Bumrah
Siraj
Shami
Umran

 


So, above are the 18 players from which the final squad will be selected.
 

Add Bishnoi to the two spinners list. He got a few chances, it's just that he was benched after Asia Cup.

In Indian conditions, most combinations would look good esp. in bilaterals (BD in BD is good too for e.g.). 
 

India has a set of players who specialize in bilaterals esp. in favourable conditions, and only a few players (like Sir Don for e.g.) that lift their game versus full strength strong teams (Aus, Eng, etc.) and in key games.

Why Thakur is being preferred in team ahead of Umran..Thakur hasnt been consistent with his batting that much..plus I find Umran more penetrative than him in middle overs..more he pkays..better he gets..

 

The team management  have finalised some players and Thakur is among them alongwith  Rahul,Chahal and maybe Harshal.

Indian selectors have an unparalleled knack of appointing players as captain who are fading in their abilities.

 

Pandu the dud is the latest in T20s. His appointment as skipper in that format also sort of secures his place in ODI XI, such are the machinations of Indian cricket. Pandu's batting is not going to deliver what we expect of a late middle order batsman in LOIs. His bowling is ok but offers more bang in SENA conditions. In India-like conditions, Sundar over the chapri.

You start off well, making a point that many miss....

And then you ruin it with the OTT fluff.

The inexperience of the middle order shown again.Rahul and Iyer will be back for Ishan and Surya.

If Surya Kumar is to be in the 18-19 squad for the WC he must play more overs! What the * was there any need to send in Brat at 3 today? It was the prefect stage for him, & he's been picked for tests over guys like Sarfaraz - do our TM & selectors have c**** for brains :facepalm:
