    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    Jadeja does get more of a pass than do other bowlers imo. Esp since he does little with the bat.

    Does save 10 runs in fielding and usually gets an extra run out.

    Jaddu is definitely worth his place but question is, is he a better all rounder than Pandya or is he a better spinner than Ashwin? Ideally we will play with Umesh there but I think they wont change the winning combination much. Which is a shame coz with Yuvi there to provide the left arm variety, we wont be losing THAT much in case we leave out Jaddu.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    There is something wrong with Yuvi's bowling though. Has to be since Jadhav and Kohli bowled ahead of him in the SL game.

    Therefore same set of bowlers will not be your top 4 in each game. My point is top 4 in given conditions should get a game even if the 4th ranked bowler is only marginally better than 5th ranked bowler and latter is vastly better batsman. Use the 5th bowler spot to make all-rounder tradeoffs.

    Nah.. Jadhav offered variation of turning the ball the other way, at least in theory, to Jaddu. I am sure if Ash was the lone spinner, Yuvi would get a few overs.

    well.. he was bowling his leg break type rollers... And I am pretty sure he was at least bowling only because BOTH Pandya and Jaddu were being hit around, forcing the 7th bowling option.

    It's odd how the big 4 are all so good they are all reasonable bowling options and good fielders to go along with the batting.

    Yeah, but why Kohli when Yuvi was available?

    he's pretty good anywhere that isn't the slips tbf

    I'd say it's more generous to call what Kohli does 'bowling'
