    I think his reasons have been extremely explicable from his posts, TBH.

    Anyway, I doubt any logical arguments are likely to change his opinion of India all that much.
    Also factually incorrect as well. Only Bhuvi averages iver 35 but has an economy below 5. Others all are below 35. Shami/Bumrah below 25.

    In such a short tournament, it's hardly about which team is strong and which team is not.

    As always it boils down to who can perform better on the day! Therefore any team can win. Even England can be beaten if their opposition have a great day or they themselves have an ordinary day.

    The strength of the teams is less of a factor.

    Don't you ever, EVER say "Even England can be beaten" as though they're good at anything. Ever.

    Seriously, ranked number 5 in the world and fans talk like they are Australia 2007.

    No way Dhawan is better than Hales. Kohli being in top 3 makes their top 3 better than anyone's probably (although I'd very seriously considering SA) but lets not go over board.

    I think on current form Hales is better. Hard to use numbers here because Dhawan's only played 10 ODIs in the last year and a half, but Hales has played a lot of matchwinning knocks.

    Dhawan is a good player but he isn't as destructive as Hales and Hales is still pretty consistent. Sharma/Dhawan is a better opening pairing though, for sure.

    Well I wasn't thinking of a player by player comparison but more as a combined top 3.

    If we look at the top 3 of the top 4 teams today

    South Africa QDK Amla Faf
    Australia Warner Finch/Head/Khawaja (?) Smith
    India Rohit Dhawan Kohli
    England Roy Hales Root


    Warner is the best ODI opener in the world today but as a combined top 3, I would pick India based on their credentials and record over a period of time.

    As a player v player assessment, I think Dhawan just edges Hales (even after giving weight to current form)

    See the more I look at it the more QdK, Amla and Faf just looks so strong to me.
