As of now..we are back to same old method...top 3 scoring bulk of the runs..again preparing same recipe for failure in ICC events..

 

With a huge change though - Rohit's SR used to be in the 70s in the powerplay in the name of 'getting set' for that big platform.  Now its 92.  I don't care if it turns out that top 3 are scoring the bulk or not, as long as the team run-rate in the first 30 overs is 7 or so.   Indian batting has the quality and depth to consistently aim at 200 in 30 overs or even sooner on 'good' days.  In earlier days, we used to aim for 160-170 in 30 overs.  Targeting those extra 40-50 runs in the first 30 overs, on a regular basis, will mean that instead of putting up a chaseable 340, we will put up 380-400 more often.  

 

But as we saw today, even a great start is no guarantor of 400.  Team has to work out the kinks and figure out the momentum, risk vs consolidation methods in the 25-50 over phase.  Which they will.  At least now the middle order has the opportunity to do so, without always being saddled with the job of dragging sub-par team totals to par or slightly par+.

Thats welcome change..we need to test the middle order more and more..so it gets battle hardened for icc events..

also if KL Rahul they are making certainty..we need him to play explosive game at his number..even Pandya as well..

if more often we are going to get solid platform from top order/MO..the lower middle order should be prepared to bat at 200+ SR..may be learn some shots from SKY lol..infact they shud use coming ipl  to develop some more hitting ability and scoring at high SR in order to prep for WCup role..

but both of them are captains of their franchise and may play the accumulator role..

With all due respect, that is your personal opinion, a subjective one, and one you are entitled to.  Others can agree or disagree.  Similarly, the team management is also allowed to have a perspective and make their choices based on what they believe is best.  And they are hired to do that job.  So one should be gracious and mature enough when discussing such subjective judgement calls, that there can be more than one "right" answer, instead of hurling random insults and bad language at legends like Dravid.  I'm not saying you did that - but plenty on this forum did.  

 

And I'm not saying that just because Dravid is who he is, he should be above criticism or disagreement.  By all means, go for it and express your opinions and criticisms, rant away - but there should be some sort of red lines that are self-imposed when it comes to that. 

 

In the name of "freedom of expression" there are plenty of posters who really vent toxic garbage.  I neither have the desire nor the time to police such crap.  I wish more folks followed your lead in posting criticism instead of the silly nonsense that litters the forum - a little too frequently for me. 

 

 

We were discussing the validity of personal opinions only.

 

If a person thinks that Kishan should have played after his 200+ but Gill is a better choice now because he has played multiple top knocks, I don't see any logical weakness there.

 

They are relative newbies with  small bodies of work, and no one can say that X should be preferred over Y with certainty.

 

But dropping a double centurion in the next match is something different and does not go down well with most people. And if it happens, strong criticism will come.
