    Aren't LOI tracks all over the world flat nowadays? It certainly helps to have supreme quality FTBs in your XI.

    I don't understand how he was not backed over Rayudu/Karthik. He didn't have too bad stats when he was dropped also.

    Great innings. This innings may lead to his selection in T20Is as well. If he can bowl that part-time legspin, we can replace Kedar with Gill

    Time to give Iyer a lengthy run in the side - I'd promote him to number 4 as well and drop Pant down to 5 or 6.

    Looked solid in both the matches. Certainly not as timid as Rahuls and Pants! Looks like King Kohli's ego didn't allow Shreyas to get into the team earlier. He dropped this talented player for Rayudu. And gosh! We even had Kedhar Jadhav and DK in WC19. Kohli should be brutally punished for being such an idiot in not choosing players like Iyer for WC.

    He had better game awareness than all the other youngsters. He starts in the third gear if need be. He can turn out classy if nurtured properly.
    How well we could have done with him at 4 in the world cup.
    Kohli really messed it up with this guy.

    He has improved against genuine pace. Let's see if it sticks.

    And all our other options for middle order have failed so far anyway. Pant needs a break, Jadhav and DK are over it and KL/Gill/Shaw/Agarwal are top order bats.

    I don't remember it too but he can cut with ease. And he is Mumbai boy even if that no longer guarantees any technical proficiency against short ball.

    He is predominantly a frontfoot player. Good one at that. India at times get tied down by spinners these days in the middle overs. This guy is a good addition.

    T20 WC is in Australia. SENA countries, Pak and WI have decent fast bowlers. He won't get anything in his arc. Coming to ODI, he may be ok since next WC is in India. Outside India i am not yet convinced.

    Just because he can't attack as well as he does with spinners doesn't mean he can't play. There are other guys in the team that will complement with him. Others are more comfortable against pace. You need someone to dominate spinners besides Pandya.

    It is not that he can't attack, he gets bullied out. And in T20s, you just can't select the type of bowler to attack, not enough time. In ODIs, maybe.

    I don't think he selects. He smashed the seamers also today. Just that he is much better against spin.

    Firstly, he only attacked against Soumya and Fizz slow ball, but that is completely OK. Fast bowlers from outside won't be lenient serving balls in his arc, is what i am saying.

    He is doing well for India and eyeing the no.4 spot for India in LO cricket. Hopefully, he keeps up his form and ends up as a long term prospect for India for no.4 position.

    India's biggest mistake was not persisting with this guy earlier. He may have struggled in SA, but he deserved a longer rope. Giving somebody like Rayudu a long rope over him was strange.

    He is taking his opportunity now and should nail down that no 4 position.

    I believe you are alluding to his 2010 WC knock and i would like to remind you it was on a SC type pitch at Gros Islet. Barbados was a spicier, bouncy pitch on which India, except for Rohit were wiped away and against WI as well. I really hope Iyer work on his shortcomings because, like Raina, he is mentally very strong.

    While I'm still not sold over Iyer but Rayudu, what the hell did Kohli & Shastri look in him? Oh, Dhoni probably found him to be good enough biryani cook.

    And what about that guy, Karthik? Playing him towards the business end of the game's premier trophy!! They probably weren't serious enough to win WC'19 I think.

    Raina was good middle order batter for us and very useful bowler but he never worked on his shortcomings. His first first class stats tell the accurate story and his test career tells it all.

    Iyer is a better long format batter. I had doubts about his technique when i first saw his batting. He played away from body and bat always came down in funny angles. He has tightening up somewhat now. Good enough for limited overs middle order bat. Temperament was always present.

    Ganguly didn't have much of a game against short bowling but he did have an alright career. Whilst its great to be good against all types of bowling, one can augment his shortcomings in one particular area by being stronger in his other aspects of batting.

    He is in plans and was even selected once in squad but currently no place available in middle order and Vihari is clearly ahead in pecking order when a spot opens up.

    This is true.

    We've everything at our disposal and see what we are playing in our ODI lineups, garbage! The WC loss was solely down to Kohli's pigheadedness....

    Honestly, the way we struggled for a player at no. 4 spot, there couldn't have been a better solution than Iyer. Good time watching young blokes given their share of chances to establish themselves.

    They never made an attempt to try many players. They announced long back Rayudu was no.4 It sure dampened the spirits of many.

    Iyer and Rahul should be at their peak of their career by the time we would start calling Kohli as Uncle 'Kohli'.

    We have guys like him and we persisted with trash like Rayudu, DK, Jadhav leading to the World Cup? Our selectors are the worst cretin.

    What did Iyer do wrong? He was smashing sixes in all domestic tournaments in 2018 while India were persisting with Rayudu who kept his place by playing safe innings and staying not out after Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli had already won the match.

    Rayudu only played to keep his place in the side while Iyer is playing to win the match for his team.

    Ponting had said during the WC that he would have liked to see Shreyas Iyer take that no.4 position. How can India miss out on this?

    Too early to judge him but iyer seems to be in the right path to becoming that #4 India so wanted to fill up. And hope he does perform well in the ODIs too in this tour...

    Kohli screwed up by backing Rayudu and Karthik for so long. But he won't take responsibility for it. This alone screwed up our World Cup campaign.

    Watched a lot of him before he became a regular in the Indian team. Never understood why he got a chance earlier. He averages over 50 in first class cricket as well. Will be a very good player for India.

    He is a hack should play more domestic cricket. He is lucky to be playing international cricket. These days players getting picked up too early for international cricket.

    Can play 360 degrees versus spin . Decent against pace. Has good acceleration and times the ball.

    You don't understand batting if you think he is a hack.

    His biggest strength is he understands the game situation and plays accordingly.

    Sehwag didn't played as team situation also. Anyways, a bad comparison. Not everyone can be Sehwag and still end up with such great numbers.

    6-7 years is a long time. Players lose fitness and form or superior replacements come forward.
