    India [180/3] defeat Sri Lanka [87] by 93 runs in first T20I, lead series 1-0

    Sri Lanka will feel this is their best chance to win a series on this tour as India are without several of their star players. They have already won away series in South Africa as well as Australia this year so they will definitely feel a series win is possible.

    I see Karthik is selected again. The guy has been playing for India for 13+ years and has such an average record. If he couldn’t succeed in 13 years why do the selectors and management think he’ll start now?

    Rahul has great potential. But not playing him frequently enough is hurting his career.

    Exactly. I would make him a permanent fixture instead of panickid Manish pandey or Karthik. Even if he fails in few games, it's important we stick with him. He's a real game changer.

    If Rahul doesn't score atleast 100, he deserves to be dropped out of the T20 squad.

    4th position is the place I want Dhoni to bat in odi and t-20, he is not playing test so not tired anymore with no captaincy. He can really time his innings perfectly from this position.

    Good, that's what I am telling either at No.4 or No.8. Nothing in between. At No.8 he can go berserk (plays the yorker very well). But for the moment (given India's unstable batting lineup) he is very much needed at No.4

    Kohli, Shastri & Co treat him as specialist opener (just because he does the toughest job of opening in Test Cricket while Rohit/Dhawan usually hide out! e.g., Australian series! Watch out for upcoming overseas tours where his real essence will be understood!) Even I was hesitant about having him in LOIs because of his inconsistency, temperament & fitness issues. But given the fragility of Indian LOI middle order currently, he is more than enough to be given maximum chance at this point because we are not going to lose much (actually a chance of gaining his confidence which is essential!) As we are playing lot of away matches, he should be part of all formats (hopefully he has worked on his fitness, now he cannot afford to miss any chances given to him! This is the make or break time for cementing his position in Indian team and establishing as a premier batsman!) It is not that he has to open. He can be a floater in this side and if needed he can do the wicket-keeping job as well in case of injury to Dhoni (or when he opts to rest or when retires!) Indian management has to think in wide angles and even Rahul has to be serious about his temperament (needs to work out by talking to seniors!)

    We don't have other alternatives. He has to be given few more chances (let him play some overseas tours). Its a wrong decision to open bowling with him (especially in T20s)

    He was rightly booted out of ODIs.

    Next T20s.

    Then Tests.

    We don't need players like Rahul who can't score 100s.

    We need Dhawans who can.

    Absolutely dreadful from our lot. Losing is one thing there's no shame in that but the way they just throw in the towel again and again when the going gets tough is pathetic. Even when on top manages to mess everything up. Have zero match awareness minnow level stuff as usual. Anyways congrats India even India B is too good for this mob.

    In ODIs when you have to consider limiting runs as well as taking wickets, yes. Kuldeep is different class in Tests though.
