    Too early to call. Hate it when people start assuming that a new player can be the next Sehwag or Tendu.

    naah his defence is way better than that of a slogger. I have seen him bat in domestic . What he needs is good shot selection ala sehwag.

    we have batsmen anyways would be a long time before he gets even close to reckoning

    No I am not talking about technique ... Likes of Sehwag , Gayle dont have technique but they still look at ease against any kind of bowling ... Agarwal was looking un-easy against average bowlers

    He didnt look good to me though that is only a personal opinion....

    I dont think he has played any First-class or even list-A matches so i dont know where have u seen him bat in domestic cricket ??

    From what i saw he was troubled by all the pace bowlers .... he was slogging all the time

    i didn't c him playing any domestic match... i just saw him play in the last year u-19 world cup and he looked quite confident to me....
    u r also right dat he was luking awkward at the crease to mediocre bowlers... but didn't u notice the spice in the deck??? dat spice made low quality bowlers like sreesanth and rp singh luk great seam bowlers.... dats my take mate

    so what??? if some one has da talent y not adore him??? talent doesn't mean u have all the gud shots in ur book... talent can be in the form of confidence... confidence to go after any great bowler... like he did today by spanking first ball of murali's spell over square leg boundary for a six...

    he looked good against spin like all Indians do ... but he looked awkward against average Pacers ...

    I dont consider him as exceptional talent ...

    i saw him in the cooch behar trophy when i was visting karnataka and had time to kill

    the problem with him is he is far too aggressive but has the ability to defend the good ball. He wont be near the indian team for the next 3 years unless something drastic happens.

    Another bloke to watch out for ashok meneria (good leggie apart from a solid left hand bat). Varun aaron and nechim should be in limelight consideing our dwindling fast bowling stocks

    Sehwag in his very short innings also give us exceptional view of his talent. But Mayank wasn't able pick RP Singh. lol. He was reading the length very late.

    so u r saying dat sehwag has been playing the same as he does now since he played his first game??? if u r... den u must be kidding... have a luk at start of sehwag's career, he never got those big hundreds or even a fluent 30 odd as he does now.... it was just his first game n u cannot count anyone out in a single shot..... technicaly pandey miles ahead of him

    He is know Sehwag, but he swings it like him to anything pitches outside off

    Sehwag is an absolute original, no one can mimic him. Even Dilshan

    Oh my frd, who said that? Sehwag didn't look that much uneasy against the seamers whether he didn't scored a century or quick fire 30. But Mayank was clearly struggling. He was reading the length so late.

    The comparison between Sehwag and Mayank makes mayank look more rubbish. And they both should not be compared. As for the 1st match, India has better players than Mayank and RCB also.

    Very Dodgy technique against pacers, don't seems to having different gears (always tries to play airy shots). So far whatever I have seen of Mayank does not boost any sort of confidence in me to say he is a future star for India.

    Looks more like India's version of Shehzaib or Shehzad

    Yeap he looks to attack every ball and his feet movements are minimal.

    On other side KKR's Iqbal Abdullah will definitely play for India.

    Besides Bowling, Iqbal is live wire in the field and that's a pretty big bonus for him ahead of Ojha (who is good spinner but average fielder)

    And also he is a decent batsman, this guy averages 34.5 in domestic with a high score of 150 not out.

    Looks more like India's version of Shehzaib or Shehzad
    Agarwal is worse. Both Shahzaib and Shehzad play pacers well. While Agarwal look like a sitting duck against pacers. Edging the ball here and there.

    You are right, what I meant was this boy does not know to construct innings with regular singles. All he tries to do in the middle is playing cross batted shots and slashing outside off stump ball after ball. I just hope he continues his poor form against our bowlers as well (CSK)

    I dont understand what you are trying to say with those dots.

    If you take test matches, yes Pakistan's overall record is better than India but I am talking about the current team and current players like Zaheer, and other bowlers. What does, having a better overall test record, have to do with current team's performance. India are a number 1 test team now. If you compare test records between India and Pakistan in the last 5 yrs are so, as most of the players in both teams have been playing in the past 5 yrs, India have a far better test record.

    So you are ignoring the overall facts and figures. Accept that PAK has a better record. Then try to convince others. Don't act blind.

    Mayank Agarwal scored a record 2141 across formats in Indian domestic season

    Mayank Agarwal has definitely got himself in queue for Indian team, says chief selector MSK Prasad

    After a successful tour of South Africa where India beat the Proteas 5-1 in the ODIs and 2-1 in the T20s, the team will shift its focus to the Nidhas Trophy. The tri-series is being hosted by Sri Lanka and also includes Bangladesh as a special contests to celebrate Lanka’s Independence. Following the short trip to the island nation, players would shift attention to IPL before the series in Ireland and England in the middle of the year. Keeping the tight schedule in mind, it was imperative for the selectors to try the bench strength. Mayank Agarwal with 2141 runs across formats in the domestic season ticked all boxes but still failed to find a spot in the 15-man squad. Agarwal scored 90 runs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy final to take Karnataka to the title.

    “No player should be confused about where he stands. Our committee speaks to every player — even those who are to selected and try to give them a fair picture. Accordingly, I spoke to Mayank and told him that with his brilliant performances in domestic cricket, he has now definitely got himself in the mix (national team reckoning). I told him that he is now in the queue,” said national selection committee chairman MSK Prasad in a chat with PTI. “We have followed a pattern in our selection process. Each and every national contender is in the queue and we don’t believe that anyone can jump the queue. Mayank is a wonderful kid and he completely understood what I explained to him. He told me ‘Sir, you are spot on and ‘I am not in a hurry at all’.”

    Jasprit Bumrah – an asset in the limited overs already – added Test matches to his list of suitable formats. He bowled 162.1 overs across formats including 112.1 overs in the three-match Test series. Keeping the workload in mind, Prasad said it is important that he is not over-used. “I am delighted with Jasprit’s performance. We always had confidence in his abilities as he had done well for Gujarat in Ranji Trophy. But now our primary goal is to monitor his workload very carefully with so much international cricket ahead. We need to be careful that he is not over-used,” said Prasad.

    He further stressed on using Bumrah only for important series also considering his unusual bowling action. “If you look at his action, it is a rare one and he can be prone to injuries. We need to use him for the important Test series coming ahead. For each and every fast bowler, the balance of workload is very important and the high performance team will be monitoring it closely,” said the former India wicketkeeper.

    Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Chahal were the other two bowlers who had South Africa’s measure during the tour. The two wrist spinners shared 33 wickets between them in India’s ODI series. “We always believed that wrist spinners are wicket-taking investments that we had to make. Both Chahal and Kuldeep have really lived up to our expectations. The most heartening aspect has been the pool that we have managed to create. We now have five quality spinners for three formats — Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel,” Prasad said.

    MSK, that journeyman cricketer, is sounding a little too pleased with himself above. He has made some truly baffling selection calls by preferring Parthiv and DK ahead of future investments like Pant. There's also a feeling that MSK allows himself to be bullied by the Kohli-Shastri duo.

    As for Mayank, he should be in a hurry, he's what 27 now? Would be good if he can hit the ground running for India as he enters his peak batting years.

    Scored runs on A tours and even big hundreds aginst visiting teams in practice matches...but never consistent in IPL only quick 20' and 30's

    Another problem as an opener no place in Top order of Indian team.. even Rahul struggling to find a place in 11

    Both Rahul and Mayank need to target middle order in Ipl

    Rishabh Pant is not what I call world class wicket keeper. He is OK for domestic level keeping. I can't imagine him keeping well against likes of Kuldeep Yadav. He'll be a huge liability as a wicket keeper.

    As far as his batting is concerned, he's more suited for flat tracks. If there's something in the pitch for the bowlers or pitch is a bit sluggish, his batting just collapses.

    So you can use him purely as a lower order batsman on a good batting wicket in T20s. He's not even selectable in ODIs.

    Sanju Samson is decent. Anyways , apart from stumping capabilities , Dhoni is below average in keeping and atrocious while batting.
    It is been said that Ishan Kishan , of whom I am a big fan , has improved his keeping.

    Let's agree to disagree.. not because of media, in my opinion MSD is still the best keeper in India for ODI and T20 (Tests Saha is Best).

    MSD the batsman is liability in T20 atleast !

    Instead of giving young prospects a chance (Mayank isn't even that young anymore) the Indian selectors would rather recall OAPs like Yuvraj as they did last year, continue picking failures like Dinesh Karthik (guy still averages in the 20s after 13 years of odi cricket), or go for complete crazy selections like Faiz Fazal.
