This Dube fella any good?
He looks a promising batsman but would be probably behind a few others on batting alone; he seems to have grabbed the selectors' attention by also bowling some seam up stuff, but it's pus and shouldn't really be a factor internationally IMO.

So Vijay Shankar, more or less. His pus bowling does seem to have been a bit more successful domestically than Shankar's so maybe I'm being harsh but it looks just as pus.

We've got a world class pace attack and yet the selectors want to force a rubbish medium pace all-rounder into the attack

Just pick 4 quicks and let Jaddu open the batting IMO

Dhawan should be dropped for a while. Pant will come good eventually.

Rahul, Rohit, Kohli, Iyer, Pant, Pandya brothers, Jadeja/Chahal/Kuldeep, Bhuvi, Deepak Chahar, Bumrah should be our best team.
Chahar can bowl all his overs upfront while Bumrah can bowl all his overs at the death while Bhuvi supports them both times.

I'd definitely consider playing two spinners ahead of Chahar at full strength, especially if Hardik is fully fit. I don't mind him as a player but your spinners are definitely better players.

Yes, in the team I had suggested, there are already 2 spinners, Krunal Pandya with any one of them. Not sure if we will need more than 2 spinners in Australia.

axar > krunal
True if you just want a straight breaker but he's batting 6/7 in that lineup and is the sixth bowler so you really need more of a batting focus. Axar's batting has been a complete meme internationally; he looks absolutely terrible against good bowlers.

krunal has played 3 fc games and he's 28

not long before he gets worked out as a bat

Why not open with Pant in t20i? Just let the dude tee off from ball one? My concern about those two openers, is they start slow generally. If they can get over that then it's no doubt your best opening combo, but sometimes they get stuck in a rut a bit at the beginning

he will prob maintain those battng stats, its hit and giggle .

That’s 10 I’m looking for one more hitter and basing my team on conditions and past performance. Pant is told to strike at 200 (hit out or get out license - will come off once or twice)
and if he can’t or doesn’t those 3 to follow will bat most of the overs with HP and J after plus 1 I need to find. I think as a neutral that team looks v hard to beat in aus

Prithvi Shaw is the batsman. 5.

1. Pant (pinch 180+ s/r target from b1 ideally 200)
2. Sharma (attack)
3. Rahul (anchor, time to play himself in if wanted)
4. Kohli (attack/anchor if Rahul goes cheap)
5. Pritvi Shaw (pinch/attack, anchor only in disaster otherwise strike above 130)
6. HPandya (slog)
7. Jadeja (attack)
8. Sundar
9. Kuldeep
10. Kumar B
11. Bumrah

I like this team it feels rigged it is so good on paper. The good thing is it has so much quality in Sharma, Kohli and Rahul how's it ever really going to get in trouble? In that sense as a neutral I don't see the point in Iyer and Dhawan, especially not both.
So I am Surprised so many of you like Iyer and Dhawan tbh. I'm not scared at all of getting bowled out , everyone down to 8 can bat. If 9 comes in then hardly any balls will be left. I moved Kuldeep to 9. I like to maximise the score in limited overs every time, I feel ideally you want to lose all your best batters before/at the last ball, otherwise you aren't maximising the score.

I do feel India have more depth than everyone else, but possibly are afraid to push too hard for strike rate when they select teams which is hindering them from maximising potential as a team. They should be looking at strike rate on fringe batsman above all else in limited overs considering they have Sharma, Rahul and Kohli

I do realise India has a culture of average caring so to speak. If the coaches goes in hard on new players and the group, saying it's all about winning and that a winning team will never be changed (injury dependant) then you get everyone to play hard in their role every game
