    Indian team for Zim triseries

    Suresh Raina to lead India in Zimbabwe | Cricket News | Zimbabwe Triangular Series | Cricinfo.com


    Squad: M Vijay, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Suresh Raina (capt), Virat Kohli (vice-capt), Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Vinay Kumar, Ashok Dinda, Pankaj Singh, Amit Mishra, Pragyan Ojha, Naman Ojha



    Note: Piyush Chawla will join the squad for the Twenty20s.







    Think it is a pretty awesome squad, tbh... Jono must be mighty pleased about getting to see Rohit, Kohli and Vijay in the same XI...




    Would have thought Piyush was a better option than Ravindra Jadeja, esp. since Ojha has been picked.. But other than that, looks a pretty solid side.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Jadeja's good in ODIs; don't let his T20 ****eness fool you. Wouldn't want Chawla or Harbhajan batting seven.

    Kohli as vc. I think I just lost my stack. Right direction.

    Although seeing Kumble's reactions to Kohli's suggestions during the IPL makes me wonder how left-field his input to decision making is. Heh.

    Awta. But there is a possibility his confidence might have taken a huge dent after this World Cup.

    Not sure Pandey should have got the call ahead of Uthappa.

    So Yuvraj has been dropped or rested? Certainly see no reason for the latter.

    long IPL and then a world T20... Pretty much a single game against SL the only thing gonna happen in this Zim triseries (the final). No point asking all these guys to continue live off their suitcases for this series alone..


    ESp. since the Asia Cup and the SL tour are nearby.. I would want my test squad to be rested before that series, tbh.

    Rohit Sharma makes a comeback to the ODI team on the basis of one knock?

    He averages 25 in 42 matches now at a strike rate of 73 .
    Pretty dire if u ask me.
    There was a period of 20 matches,i think before he was dropped where he averaged around 15 .
    And it was not as if he wasn't given a consistent run.
    Maybe Pandey or Pujara should have been given a run ahead of him this time.

    Well, Panday was even worse in the IPL.. At least Rohit has form going for him..

    There seem to be just 4 real batsmen in the team. Should have included a couple more.

    Squad: M Vijay, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Suresh Raina (capt), Virat Kohli (vice-capt), Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Vinay Kumar, Ashok Dinda, Pankaj Singh, Amit Mishra, Pragyan Ojha, Naman Ojha
    Let's break the team down in to the following:
    Batsmen: Vijay, Karthik, Raina, Kohli, Rohit
    Bits and pieces: Y Pathan, Jadeja, N Ojha (Wk)
    Seamers: Yadav, Vinay, Dinda, Pankaj
    Spinners: Ashwin, Mishra, Ojha

    I am happy with a squad full of youngsters selected but the combination doesn't seem to be right. There appear to be too many bits and pieces players. Would have preferred someone like Panday in place of YP or Jadeja and Uthappa, who keeps wkts too, in place of Ojha. Rayydu, who showed good promise both with the bat and gloves for MI, could have been considered too.

    The selectors should have probably waited for the T20 WC to be over before pulling the trigger. I have Q mark over Vijay, YP, Jadeja and N Ojha. May be Uthappa, Panday, Rayydu and Irfan Pathan would have been better options

    Naman Ojha is hardly a bits and pieces player. He has good List A figures.

    I have seen him play for RR (the team I support). I wouldn't classify him as a specialist batsman or a wk (irrespective of his List A figures)
