    Yeah, sucks that he only turns up for important ODIs.

    One of the worst ground (in terms of drainage ) in the Caribbean.

    Good, no free wickets for Ashwin. No doubt he'll clean up in this tournament and then get hammered again when it matters.

    The real question is why did anyone schedule this series in the West Indies at this time of year. Complete lack of physic powers being employed has really let down the fans.
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    It was good planning tbh, check out the interest it's generated. The players get a nice break and we don't need to watch WI embarrass themselves.

    India's opening partnership is having one hell of a run right now.

    Too bad they couldn't deliver last Sunday when it really mattered.

    Long term, I think we will do better if we get Rohit at 4 and Rahane at the top, over all conditions. As long as we can ensure one of Rahane or Dhawan realize the need to go for quick runs at the top of the order. The more I think of it, a side like this would make me feel so much more confident of our chances in ODIs.

    Dhawan
    Rahane/Rahul Jr.
    Kohli (c)
    Rohit (vc)
    Pant (wk)
    Jadhav/Raina
    Pandya
    Kuldeep
    Piyush / Umesh
    Bhuvi
    Bumrah/Shami


    Jaddu can be in the squad for the fielding but he needs to be told in no uncertain terms that he needs to contribute with the bat and be more consistent with the ball to be a regular.

    I get that he's a 34 and a woman beater but it's not fair to ignore Mishra.

    36 games and 64(!) wickets. Averages 23.9. SR of 29. Economy of 4.7. It's just miles ahead of any other spinner we've tried.

    Just because he was incorrectly picked in tests doesn't mean we should bin him.

    He is a bottler. And I dont think he would be around for the WC. Also, and I cant stress this enough, he is a negative with the bat and in the field in ODIs. Piyush will actually be an improvement in all aspects.

    He doesn't do that in ODIs.

    His batting and fielding are equal to Ashwin

    Piyush is dire

    I hate you all

    Knew this was coming ever since you wrote that post saying you like Pratters these days.


    And no Ash is bad in the field but Mishy is worse. Ash was good at least in the slips. And with the bat, Mishy is strokeless whereas Ash has actually improved his big hitting from the 20% it used to be to about 40-50% of the international standard expected from #8 or 9. And Piyush was in the WC winning squad.
