    Icon8 Worst batting lineup, India or Pakistan ??

    I can't figure out which one is worse , but they both are certainly very poor, don't think any major test team (not taking into consideration Bang,Zimb) can match the low standard set by these so called Asian powers.Can't imagine the last time 2 wkt keepers were made to play in OD side, one as a pure batsman.

    IF we take out Dravid and YOusuf from the two side, then the 2 respective side would crumble very badly.I can't decide which one is the worst

    McCullum has batted as a pure batsman, as has Parore at times, in ODI's.

    AB de Villiers too, but he's more of a batsman-keeper then keeper-batsman.

    I think Stewart also might've played alongside pure keepers?

    both batting line ups are even
    on fire power i think pakistani lineup is more explosive on their day, but afridi has to play and this only applies to their ODI side

    indian lineup has more exp, probably a better lineup for test matches, but thier odi team is heavily reliant on dhoni

    A few bad matches, and you go off on the line-ups. Sorry to say, but a typical Asian Cricket fan.

    Seriously. This lineup will have a good performance and you'll make a thread saying "Best batting lineup, India or Australia ??". They are struggling, out of form and depleted by the loss of the best batsman (Yuvraj). Chill out.

    Silly thread, but an interesting point - most keepers to play in the same ODI side?

    If we class a wicketkeeper as someone who's started an ODI as a named gloveman, I can find an England side with three - here - playing Prior, Jones and Trescothick.

    Can anyone find a four?

    Yup I think us Indian fans need to chill, yes we should be dissapointed and are just in being so, especially at the work ethic of most of our players. But we also have to realize the fact that we not only sucked in this series but we were also very unlucky. Missing 3 key players, each of them were in form, and losing all the tosses! So I think we need to realize that other than Australia, all other teams are inconsistent, they have their good times and then they have their bad times. Us Indian fans, however, are just so passionate that even one season out of form, and we start criticizing heavily.

    Yes we are crap at the moment, but it won't take long for us to find form again and start playing great cricket.

    umm Inzamam and Younis Khan beats everyone in the Indian batting lineup bar Dravid at the moment. Hafeez isnt half bad either. Nor is Kamal if they actually pick him.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Inzamam !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IMO (Note IMO) (Note, also, that we are talking about Tests)

    Dravid > Mohd. Yousuf
    Tendulkar = Inzi
    Sehwag > Any opener in the Pak team
    Laxman = Younis Khan
    Yuvraj > Razzaq
    Dhoni < Akmal

    So, in other words, Indian line-up, though out of form and currently not playing in the subcontinent (unlike Pakistan), are far better.
