    I must have missed this:
    Suresh Raina (Ind)
    Surely he needs to be picked for India before he can define cricket
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    odi stats:

    I rest my case.
    by the way, pietersen is gonna carry england really far especially in odis. he goes after every bowler and is a huge hitter. also, bravo looks to be a great all-rounder. hopefully, he does not underachieve like one abdul razzak.
    Well look at the test match averages... Asif hasn't proven much but imho certainly has all the assets to be a really dominating force with the ball for next decade or so if he can stay away from drugs
    As for ODI's Asif hasn't been that great in those but if he goes to NZ soon i'm sure he'll improve his stats very quickly...... not suggesting NZ batsman are crap but pitches there will be very helpful to him

    Raina is the worst bowler. 'Nuff said.

    Only time will tell, but being a great fielder, ok bowler and good batsman can make you an all rounder these days.

    Greg Chappell wanted him to work on his bowling, he was seriously considering becoming a part time bowler.

He managed to score 109 when Mahmood was dropped for Kabir Ali, as well - a worse attack really. Flintoff was not playing.
    That's a genuinely awful bowling attack for a 'non-minnow' team

    As for Suresh Raina, I honestly believe that he should be treated carefully and possibly bridge the massive gap when Dravid, Ganguly and Tendulkar, all 34, retire in the next 5 years. He may be groomed into the next Indian batting talent.

    He is very good. How good he is against real pace isnt known since he never gets to face that. On the wickets he plays on in India and the bowling he faces, he looks superb.

    If his record is anything to go by, then he could be a very good ODI batsman for India. He's only a young guy though, I'd give him a bit more time, just to see how he handles it.

    When we played against him, he was the one whom impressed us most. He had the technique best suited to all conditions of any of the subcontinent batsmen that I've seen in youth cricket.

    A lot of the guys who made runs against us looked as though they were real "home grown products" (Ravikant Shukla, the captain, was a good example of this), and didn't like the ball above knee height. However, Sharma was really organised, and (without wanting to put the mockers on him) reminded me of Dravid in technique.

    He averaged 37 (combined one-day, four-day stats) in the Top End Series in Australia. That's a good sign.

    Based upon what I have seen of Sharma (though not while playing against him), I'd have to agree. He plays the short ball quite well and he seems to have a good attacking game as well as a compact technique. Nevertheless, we have several batting prospects and Sharma should not be rushed. Same goes for Raina, Pujara and Tiwary to an extent. These guys have loads of time to develop into polished cricketers.

    Pujara, Tehlan, Dhiman ... do you remember anything about them?
