    It's cute you expect anyone here to take your opinions seriously, when you come with gems like "India is as dominant as the Australian team of the 2000s". What happens to this 'dominant' India in ICC tournaments, where it proceeds to soil its pants at the first sign of pressure?

    P.S. Watch Joshila bhai bring in Pakistan and a few expletives in his reply

    Both look in control and play some beautiful shots and then throw it all away!!!

    Are you spokesperson of the entire PP?

    And you think your opinion is taken seriously by me? Lol.

    That was a big LOL though. The claim that this Indian side is as dominant as Australia ATG side who won 3 WCs in a row with minimum fuss.

    On what basis in ODIs?

    Akmal was already doing better than Pant at his age with a 50 on debut and century in his 2nd match.

    Yes in tests Pant has been doing pretty well. Akmal also scored a brilliant century in NZ 129(160) on his debut. I think Umar was unfairly treated in tests.

    On talent alone I have seen Umar Akmal in his earlier days play some outrageous shots against quality pacers which I am yet to see from Pant. Sure Pant is a talent but needs to work really hard.

    Rishabh Pant is the next AB de Villiers/Jos Buttler for India

    A brilliant hitter of the bowl, an exceptional talent with the bat and a guy who can take the game completely away from the opposition after coming to bat after 20 overs.

    India have found the Indian AB de Villiers or Jos Buttler. It's the 21 year old Rishabh Pant for us. He is India's new no.5/no.6 with the bat and he completely suits that position more than anyone. Add to the fact that he is a glovesman just like the former two.

    The only thing that is seperating him is lack of experience and lesser backing by the Indian team management. This guy is picture-perfect made for the no. 5 position in Indian lineup in future. You can play him a few games at 6 early on but with more experience, he will seal the no. 5 spot for himself. That solves one position for India in the middle.

    Pant is better than Umar Akmal in every way and if you just look at game understanding then they are not even in same league

    back in 2000s teams dint rig the pitches. And that aussie team never won a world cup in the subcontinent. only on bouncy pitches in South Africa similar to home. England also sported bouncy pitches at the time and so did west indies. 1999-2007.

    post 2007 host nations started doctoring the pitch.

    That's a bit much!! He can nail down the no.6 position with Pandya at 7. India needs proper hundred hitting capable batsmen at 4, 5. Time for Shaw, Gill, Rahul, Mayank to own these spots.

    Pant will likely bat at 5. Not 4. But highly unlikely he will bat at 6.

    If he can score 150s in tests and 200s and 300s in FC, he surely can bat.

    You are judging his ability by his innings in what 8-9 ODIs played over 18 months?

    Comparing any batsmen to young potential Umar Akmal is a good sign because at young age, it is the potential that is seen and Pant is just 21.

    He will be India's no. 5. If India can have Rahul and Gill in the middle, then he will have to satisfy with no. 6 or else after some matches and some experience, he will take the no. 5 spot for India.

    Rahul has competition from Gill,Shaw and may be even Mayank.

    Right now 4,5,6 are all open slots. Pant has a secured place as he is the wk.

    Even Dhawan at 33 is not assured of a place in 2023 and selectors may try out Mayank and Rahul.

    Whatever you say, that Aus ATG side was better and won with minimum fuss. Last 3 WCs have been won by host nations which is not a coincidence so you have a point. But that ATG side was the best team ever to play the game by some distance.

    not really. 1999 one was definitely not a great team.

    2003 yes. Even then the pitches suited them.

    2007 was a great team too but I have no doubt pakistan, india would have beaten them in subcontinent conditions.

    In fact a year later india beat them lel a tri series comfortably.

    The issue is not with ability. Yes he scored test hundreds. I am judging his ability asked in IPl and oDIs. He thinks he doesn't have time and hence those ridiculous shots unlike in tests. It's an issue with attitude. Indian youngsters at more exposure compared to kids in other countries. They play a lot of pressure games through IPl or A tours. Hope he proves me wrong but I think somebody with a calm mind should be 5. Somebody that can take the game deep like Dhoni but with a better SR than Dhoni. India needs a replacement for Yuvraj at 5 not Raina.

    Lol next ABD is hard to say. He averaged over 50 at a strike rate over a 100 for a number of years, also scored in most countries. Pant should not aim to be AB. He should aim to keep working at his game and back himself. He has the talent.

    He doesn’t want to go down the KL Rahul road. It would be a travesty for India if that happened.

    KL Rahul is a mental midget. Pant is not. This is why Dhoni was more successful as a batsman over a technically more proficient Karthik. Dhoni's technique is very dodgy. But he knows how to survive and scores runs. (Not the new DHoni though. He is more harmful)

    This is the problem with fans like you. First you guys will overhype these noobs and compare them with ATGs and then when they don't deliver according to your expectations you will start abusing them. KL Rahul is a perfect example too. You guys will attack anyone who doesn't want to jump on this overhype bandwagon too.

    Pant should spend a season or two in county cricket. He is a half baked product and will have the same fate like KL Rahul.

    There are other guys waiting in the queue. He can go back to domestic cricket and gain his confidence. Have been saying this for the past one year he should be kicked. Mayank should get as many chances as KL Rahul now.

    You nailed it. The top order has been the boon and the curse. How can you give exposure to these newbies in the middle order with top 3 batting for 35 to 40 overs in almost every game? Kohli needs to bat at 4. The middle order is undercooked for the entire tournament until the SF where they are expected to chase 300+ or bat in swinging conditions. That's the story in every ICC tournament for the past 5 years. India needs to go gung ho like England. Enough of 150/1 in 30 overs. Go for 180/3. Target 350+ scores. Get good Batsmen as middle order players instead of hitters and give them exposure by challenging them to buy into the new philosophy.

    He's got mental issues in LOIs like Rahane. Infact KL was a Rahane type player initially before he revamped into an aggressive player. However, under pressure you see him going back into his shell as that's his natural instinct. He is an absolute mental midget for two reasons. One, a stupid shot always follows a good start and two, he goes into panic mode under pressure. The same reason why he doesn't like batting at 4. If he was mentally strong, it would solve India's no.4 problem. Here's a guy capable of playing pace and spin with a straight bat but also has 360 strokes at death. What a waste

    India should have batted him at 4 instead of wasting time with the rubbish players they did. If he got a consistent run and didn't perform he could have dropped. But India have not given him in a run of games. Now they are giving him a run of games , he has lost his confidence.

    I never abused any youngster that I backed unless he keeps on failing way too much after given a lot of chances.

    During this whole WC, I clearly expressed the unfair planning and backing of Pant. He will need some time but he is destined to become one of India's future greats.

    Nope all their top players were still there. ponting, Clarke, Watson, haydos. 2007 team wouldn't beat india imo.

    2003 yes that was a great side. However lot of the Indian players were at their peak. They would certainly perform better in home conditions. Not sure about pakistan. it's a 50 50 game in 2003 had the world cup been hosted by a subcontinent nation.

    Lots of talent coming through. India's future is in safe hands as far as batting goes. Kohli is the only roadblock for them. He kept going back to his old buddies both in Tests and ODIs.

    2003 yes that was a great side. However lot of the Indian players were at their peak. They would certainly perform better in home conditions. Not sure about pakistan. it's a 50 50 game in 2003 had the world cup been hosted by a subcontinent nation.
    Wow what revision of history. Talking about a tri series win in 2008 against the Aussies and strangly forgetting a certain series that happened in India after India's t-20 victory. What was that series result again?🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Australia beaten India in ODIs in 2001(3-2), won Tri series in India in 2003( head to head was 3-1 to Australia), beaten India in champions trophy(held in India), beaten India again in 2007(4-2).
    So Australi's record in India from 99-07 was 11-5 and yet by some magic they would've lost to India in sub-continent 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    P.S. A past it Australia also Won in India in 2009(4-2)

    no guarantee brother. champion trophy is not the world cup. india will lift their performance in the world cup in the sub continent. They are difficult to beat at home conditions particularly when their players were at their optimal peak condition. one off game they can definitely beat australia in sub continent conditions.

    Australia in 2003 - 2007 was a world class team. no doubt at all but they were untested in subcontinent conditions at a world cup event. Don't forget lot of the sand paper boys learnt their art from there. They also cheated to draw a test series in 08 due to a series a bad calls from bucknor.
    I am certain lot of calls went in their favour back in the 2000 era.

    They cheated to win not draw. India weren't winning at sydney.
    Bad umpiring affected every team in that era.Anil kumble wouldn't have gotten all those LBWs in his 10 fer with DRS. Harbhajan took his famous hattrick with two lbws(one of which pitched half a foot outside leg) and one caught(a clear bump ball). So all the teams more or less were affected by bad umpiring

    No, you are just a glory hunter who only comes out of his cave when his favorite boy scores some runs. However fans like you are nowhere to be seen when your favorite boy is busy collecting eggs on the field. Have seen plastic fans like you all my life.

    Early days for Pant. There will be hits-and-misses. But he is a quality player and with time will come good.

    I expect him to become an important part of Indian team by the time he ages 25.

    india were definitely winning that one in Sydney. 11 decisions against them vs 2 lol. Nope the harbhajan wicket was legit and the pitch was turning. india would have finished them. India had world class players who can bat on the last day. Had it not been for some rubbish decisions they would have definitely won.

    You will start crying if I start mentioning the size of your brain here. You are a joke of a poster with no knowledge about cricket.

    Are you Yograj Singh in disguise?

    Do you think Pant will follow the career graph of MS Dhoni? There will be no other wicketkeeper batsman like Dhoni in Indian cricket. I am not Dhoni's die hard fan but fans like you who have just started watching cricket should atleast show some respect and not try to bring Dhoni down whenever your Pimple Boy gets criticised for his poor performances.

    Also you should come back online once Pant scores another 20 balls 25 runs within next couple of innings.

    He is a Tullaybaz. Good for only No.7. But luck is with him. He has not much younger competition.Samson is inconsistent and I believe has knee problems which prevents him from keeping. Ishan Kishan is even greater Tullaybaz with poorer keeping skills.

    What dhoni did or did not do doesn't matter, he wasn't trying to replace a legendary player. Pant isn't taking his chances thus basically keeping dhoni's seat warm for him.

    In the chances Pant has got so far, he clearly demonstrates why he is not ready for ODI yet. His List A record does not portray anything different.

    Your comment is very apt. As much as Dhoni has declined and does not make cricketing sense for him to continue further, the onus is on Pant and others to prove that they can do better than the regressing Dhoni. So far , Pant is not up to the mark and it won't change overnight.

    Iyer should bat at 4 and Pant at 5. If we would have played Yuvraj at 4 during early years of his career,he would have found things hard too.

    Players are suited as per their position. Pant is a no.5, hence that should be his position. Or if they can bring in Gill, Pant can be moved down to 6 as well.

    Rohit
    Shawn
    Kohli
    Gill
    Iyer
    Pant
    Pandya

    Remove Jadhav from the lineup. It's a waste. You didn't backed him in WC 2019 after wasting 3 years on him and now that WC is over, you are again moving on with him, that's hypocrisy!

    Though his aggressiveness suits opening, his shot selection may result in disaster for India. He is been playing the same way since u19 worldcup he was an opener then and thrown his wicket away and got out to a single digit score in U19 WC FINAL. And he did the same in WC SEMI FINAL. Still he didn't change his game. Failing is not wrong but failing in the same way every time by not correcting your mistakes is definitely wrong. Hope we won't see a thread on another talent wasted.

    If you actually care to read the above posts you will know that I wasn't the one who brought Dhoni's name into this discussion. I have been saying it from the start that Dhoni has nothing to do with Pant's poor performances. Dhoni is finished. Let that legend take rest now.

    There are some fans who have nothing else to show for Pant in LOI's and will bring Dhoni's test stats to prove how great Pant is lol. His fans accused me of bringing in Dhoni but its actually the opposite here.

    If you want to say Shreyas is better than Pant, go ahead, I don't have any issues. Shreyas is competing with Gill, Pandey where as Pant is competing with Samson, Ishan.

    The legend had scored 18, 2, 15, 46*, 14 in his first visit to Windies.
    I don't have to come out of a cave because I don't hide when Pant performs in 2 out of 10 innings. I also don't forget to call fans like you out of their cave in the remaining 8 matches.

    And look at your reply again. I asked your opinion about Pant's inning today and once again you desperately brought Dhoni's stats into discussion which has nothing to do with Pant. Let me ask this again. What's your opinion about Pant's inning yesterday?

    You seem to have comprehension issues. If someone like Dhoni who hasn't done much on his first tour to Windies can get a long rope why can't Pant get a long rope. You are the one who said there will be no other wicket keeper like Dhoni so I just reminded you how 'good' Dhoni was on his first visit to Windies. With that 2 out of 10 innings performance he has already achieved something in tests and T20Is that 'consistent' Dhoni couldn't achieve - test hundreds in England and Australia, match winning 50 in Windies. Compare first worldcup performances of Dhoni and Pant you'll know who is better.
