    Your thoughts on Krunal Pandya?

    Krunal Pandya has been very consistent performer in this IPL season for MI.

    Today also he smashed 86 off 37 and took 2 wickets. Batting wise he possesses better technic than Hardik Pandya. Even though he is a left arm spinner agaisnt Hardik who is a medium pacer(who can be handy in seaming conditions) , In this IPL he has outperformed Hardik hands down.

    I know many dont rate t20 especially IPL here but still whatever we have seen of Krunal Pandya, Can he replace Hardik from Indian team or any chance of playing both of them?

    Krunal will find tough as he would have to replace Jadeja as both are left arm spinners. India can go with Hardik and Jadeja both but not with two similar types of bowlers.

    I'd give this credit to IPL(One of very fews). Players these days start playing and interacting with International stars. Gives them lots of confidence by the time they get the call for Indian team.

    We are lacking so much in power hitting that its not even funny.

    Teams like Eng, NZ, Aus, SA and WI are filled with power hitters.

    So any power hitter if he can maintain consistency is welcome.

    But long way to go.

    One IPL doesn't mean much if the guy doesn't have any domestic (List A) performances yet.

    The best thing about him is he is more consistent than what Hooda was last year also he gets frustrated when he mistimes a ball or plays a bad shot which is an improvement unlike his brother.

    I liked his confidence. He seems to be a fighter and never gives up. He can replace Jadeja in LOIs. We badly need a hard hitting batsman in death overs. Jadeja has been useless with the bat. I thought his yonger brother, Hardik, would replace Jadeja, but I was not impressed with his bowling. He seemes to be very one dimensional with his length and doesn't have any variations at all. No, his bowling would be effective on any kind of pitch. I rate Binny's bowling higher than Hardik's.

    Rohit definitely got the amount of chances he got cos of his IPL , Raina's case it did help but till recently he was a consistent performer for India .

    I mentioned only Dhawan , cos if not for IPL he was never going to play for India .

    Most players play for U-19 or or domestics before coming to IPL but they usually pick up its a league,Kohli picked up after playing in IPL,Ashwin,Raina all similar.

    Following the Under-19 World Cup, Kohli was bought by the Indian Premier League franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore for $30,000 on a youth contract.

    If anyone wants to pick up he will use the services accordingly and bring the best.

    Its very difficult to call somebody a find of IPL. You name a player and somebody will tell you that he has been playing in U-19 or domestic.

    Atleast IPL gives them a chance to be in limelight, to play with the stars they idiolize. If nothing more it gives them the confidence.
    We have countless players in the past who had been scoring tons of runs in Ranjis but didn't get deserved chances or didn't get highlighted.

    Very few players like Krunal Pandya who have not played domestic games featured directly in IPL and succeeded till now.
    He could be a great find if he continues like this atleast in T20s.

    Problem with these type of players are that they never give you confidence. They will do well for one or two years at max and then become liability in the team.

    True.

    Look at that Binny character now.

    I can't believe he SAVED us a test match (Trent Bridge) on Day 5 when it suddenly started swinging.

    If not for him, we would have lost that match.

    But can't prejudice everyone to be fair. What if they turn out to be good.

    Domestics and consistency are the way to go.

    Batsmen to watch out for- Manish Pandey, Surya Kumar Yadav, Sarfaraz Khan, L.Rahul, S. Iyer, Deepak Hooda(still think he can come good) Karun Nair. Some of them are regulars in IPL and domestic matches.

    A bit disappointed with the progress of Sanju Samson, M.Agrawal, Unmukt Chand ,Manan Vohra and couple of others. Looked excellent in bits and pieces but couldn't make it to the big league. One positive thing about them is that Age is on their side. They still have lots of time to improve.


    As far as bowlers are concerned- Murugan Ashwin and Barinder Sran have caught my attention whatever I have seen of them. One player I wanted to see is MI pacer Nathu Singh, young lad from Jaipur. Heard a lot about him from my local friends. Shame he couldn't get a game till now.

    T20s are batsmen slog fest anyway with smaller boundaries, flat decks etc. So its very tough to judge the bowlers.

    Hardik is the better hack though.

    Whenever I've seen Krunal play, though he probably clears the boundary much more than Hardik, he gets totally out of shape while playing his shots. I saw him yesterday and many of his shots were played with the batsman out of position.

    Hardik meets the ball sweetly in the middle and doesn't lose his shape while playing shots unlike his older brother which is why I feel Hardik has the better future eventhough he has been a garbage bowler till now.

    Good observation. All India needs is a 10-0-55-1 and 25 (20) from Hardik in ODIs. He is capable of delivering that and his exceptional fielding is a bonus. Krunal looks a slogger while Hardik is a relatively clean hitter

    I agree. Though I don't think he is good enough to go at 5.5 in ODIs, I feel he is more of a confidence player and think he is a good enough to stake a claim in the team purely due to his versatility.

    If he is average then I think we can find a better all rounder than him.

    One would think so but believe me Binny is the 2nd best at this point. Most of the all rounders are spinners. Hardik is still very young. If he works hard, he can be a good player in 3 to 4 years time.

    krunal pandya Discussion Thread.

    His all-around contribution in today's match shows that he has a caliber to represent India in upcoming matches.
    He bowls well and hit some great shots to finish the match.
    In post-match talks, he says that he always like to play and contribute to India in the tough situation and train hard for that purppose( not easy one).

    I like his confidence and mentality of contributing in the tough situation. I know it's too early but if he can deliver what he thinks ,than he can be a great asset to India as a all-rounder.

    Fine debut. He needs to perform well in all 3 matches, if he gets going he can be a good addition to our world cup squad. Much better batsman than jadeja.

    He is a quality player but he has competitions from Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja.

    The thing is junior Pandya has an added advantage that he is a fast bowler and not a spinner. India, haven't found it hard having spinners who bat but a batsmen who bowls fast gives him that added advantage.

    Ravindra Jadeja is fantastic as well and he also has the added advantage that he is a better bowler than batsmen unlike the other two.

    Krunal is impressive too and I believe depending on conditions and team role and requirements, these three will keep getting rotating.

    If he performs well we may get a solid player for no. 6 spot in odis.
    He is surely a better batsman than the hack jadeja.
    He needs to perform well in all 5 upcoming matches (vs wi and aus) in order to ensure his spot in the team.

    Hardik pandya has a permanent spot in odis and rightly so.

    Krunal can replace kedar jadhav for no. 6spot, jadeja is a dud with the bat, zero big hitting ability.

    Good Post . Definetly hardik has an advantage of being a fast bowler all rounder.

    Jadeja edges Krunal in bowling, fielding. They are playing him instead of Chahal. Don't think they will go to an inferior bowling of Krunal for a couple of runs he might add.

    Why test? He doesnt even play First Class.

    The hatred for Jadeja is ridiculous. If Krunal Pandya performs, then he can take over Jadeja's or Jhadav's LOI position, but not test. Jadeja has actually gotten better in tests than LOIs.

    Taking into account that he despises anyone who goes by the name of Pandya, it is pretty safe to assume that he was being sarcastic.

    If he does, it will strengthen our batting.

    Am I forcing anyone to have conversation with me? I don't even mind if I don't get a single reply from anyone here. I will post whatever I will like. Keep crying and keep overhyping anyone whose last name is Pandya.

    Jadeja's bowling avg in odis is 35 and if we take overseas conditions inyo consideration it will get even worse. Its not tough to be as good as jadeja in bowling ( odis) .
    Jadeja is a better fielder but krunal is no slouch either, he is also an athletic fielder, so difference in fielding capabilities isn't a big issue.
    Jadeja has limited potential with the bat, he isn't a good hitter and usually plays 30(35)innings which isn't good enough to compensate for our weak middle order, krunal has that ability. Krunal can hit big sixes(seen him in ipl), also he was highest run scorer and highest wicket taker for baroda in 2017 so his domestic report card is also pretty decent.

    Keep your IPL performances to IPL please. We don't even have a proper finisher. What has IPL done in that regard?

    Let KL Rahul who was in great form(according to Manjrekar) in IPL and went out of form in internationals hit big sixes first. Also let Pant cement his place in the team because at the moment DK has performed better than him.

    Definitely can easily replace jadeja in the squad who is very poor with the bat. In fact he is a better player than his brother Hardik. Definitely a better bowler and also as a batsman looks much more organized than Hardik.

    Krunal is a better batsman than Jadeja but no way is he a better bowler. There's a big difference between bowling 4 overs and 10 overs.

    Krunal is certainly not good enough to be the 5th bowler in ODIs. Once Hardik is back in the ODI XI, the only person Krunal can replace is Kedar Jadhav. Question is - is he as good a bat as Kedar?

    Anyway, realistically I don't see any of that happening. It's too late to bring Krunal into the picture for 2019 WC. But he should certainly look to book his place for the 2020 WT20. If in 2020 we can field

    R Sharma
    S Dhawan
    KL Rahul
    V Kohli
    R Pant
    H Pandya
    K Pandya
    B Kumar
    K Yadav
    Y Chahal/K Ahmed
    J Bumrah

    then we'll be good to win the tournament. The kind of balance 2 ARs provide is priceless. 7 batsmen and 6 bowlers in this team. All bases covered. 4 right-handed and 3 left-handed batsmen. 3/4 pacers and 3 different kinds of spinners. Every single base covered.

    Krunal has the ability to be the Raina of this Indian LOI team.

    Rohit
    Dhawan
    Kohli
    DK*
    Kedar
    Krunal
    Hardik
    Bhuvi**
    Kuldeep
    Chahal/Shami/Khaleel
    Bumrah

    is India's best hope of winning the WC next year.

    * would like Pant but he needs to prove he can construct big innings in the shorter format. At this moment, a better test/FC player than LOI/List A.
    ** bhuvi will do well in England and too late in the cycle to find a replacement for him. Need to get him and Shami fit.

    I think Indian fans need to stop shoehorning Rahul and Pant into the 50-over teams.

    At this point, both are better test players.

    K Pandya will be a good addition to the LOI side. He is a good hitter and also is a decent LO bowler. He is far better option than Jaddu in ODI & T20. I feel it is too late for the WC though, there isn't much time for India to experiment as people who are already in the team need more games. He can be a fixture for the T20 WC and post WC ODI teams.

    Krunal, as far as I can see is the quintessential LOI bowler. Varies pace and angle drastically. Jadeja varies pace, but only faster. Krunal also looks more a confident batsman. Having said all these, early days yet. Need to give him chances. In my view, Jadeja will be a cannon fodder in Eng. Nothing has changed from CT 2017.

    I know it's probably too late for krunal for cwc 19. But it he keeps giving stellar performances in the next 5 t20's then, why can't we go with a xi like this?
    Rohit
    Dhawan
    Kohli
    Rayudu
    Dhoni
    Kedar
    Hardik
    Krunal
    Kuldeep
    Bumrah
    Khaleel
    We have 3 proper bowlers in khaleel, bumrah and Kuldeep. 3 AR's in Jhadav and the Pandya brothers who can bowl 20 overs between them. This gives us flexibility also as if one guy is having a bad day the others can cover for him. Then we have
    5 batsmen and the lower order power of Kedar and Pandya brothers. I really think this is the best we can do right now and this xi is much better than the xi we played against windies(personally don't feel Dhoni should be in the team but that debate is over).
