Potential Jaiswal ODI debut on the cards.

Maybe Tukuraj will also get a chance.

Gill or Iyer captain maybe.

Rutrajaa

Jaiswal

Giĺly

Pant

Rinku

Pandya

Venky iyer

Axar

Arshdeep

Bumrah

Mayank

 

That would be some team

Wish they're retired from shorter formats altogether. They would be too old for the next WC in 2027 so let the youngsters have their chance...

 

Jaiswal

Gill (VC)

Sai Sudarshan (perfect for a no. 3 in odis)

Shreyas Iyer (he was our best bat after Rohit in Wc 2023 and batted with intent)

Pant (wk)

Rinku (List A average of 50 and temperament to boot)

Pandya (C)

Axar or Venkatesh Iyer (if we need added batting depth)

Harshit Rana (or a spinner if it's a turning pitch)

Arshdeep/Kuldeep Sen/Mayank Yadav

Bumrah

Would like to see Parag given a chance as well.

Won't mind Sudarshan at 3 too though.

Parag is more of a T20 player at the moment. Sai Sudarshan has the game for ODIs at no. 3. He's the sort of player who'll strike around 90-100 like Kohli, and others can bat around him. He's not an ideal player for T20s and wish our selectors see that.

 

IMO Indian selectors can't differentiate between formats and have a hard time selecting the right players for the right format.

Wasn't KL captain SA ODIs? 

Has long been groomed I think.  Don't think BCCI is sold on Pant as keeper bat too.

Kela is a safe bet for them.. as Pandua's fitness is iffy

Kela and Pandu potential captaincy candidates:hysterical:

Kela must be front runner 

 

 

I thought we would have enough sense to move away from likes of KL. He's the embodiment of the phrase "An army of sheep, led by a lion, is better than an army of lions, led by a sheep"

 

He's a mental midget and we don't need to go back to him in any format. There're enough batsmen and talent around for us to not go back to him. Make Shreyas Iyer the captain if you've to but no need to bring in KL Rahul.

Pandya likely. KL will play vice.  His stock is down after the WC. Pandya bas chaa gya hain ab . 

 

Don't think so.  He captained SA ODIs after the World Cup. 

 

Batted well in that Test in SA before getting injured 

 

I don't think KL stocks are down at all.  After his comeback from injury , he did well in the Asia Cup vs Pakistan and except the final he did well in the World Cup as well 

 

Hes not seen as a pure batter in this format.

Ditto. I don't think they are comfortable giving Pant 50 overs to keep yet 

 

KL is the only option for keeper bat unless they back Sanju.

I hope we don't go with all three of Ruturaj, Gill and Iyer. Only one of them should play, preferably Gill. 

 

Don't mind Iyer. He has the game to accelerate and bats with intent. He won't potter around like KL Rahul. In ODIs Gill & Iyer are pretty good IMO along with likes of Jaiswal, Sai Sudarshan, Rinku, Pant and Pandya. That's a pretty decent batting lineup.
