    Will Hardik Pandya cost India dearly at the 2019 World Cup?

    Poor with the ball and a total back with the bat.

    He can give performances here and there, but when attacked, especially on flat decks, he may cost India heavily.

    His bowling is gun barrel straight. Not good to be a 5th bowler. And also not reliable as a batsman.

    Tbh, India has a poor middle and lower order.

    Too early to say as WC 19 still relatively long enough away for Pandya to be dropped if keeps failing. But Pandya was excellent in England so doubt he'd be a liability.

    The top order and the bowling unit looks solid but the middle order is awful. Need to inject some fresh blood in

    He has to improve bowling lot - otherwise, it's better to play 6 batsmen and 10 make-shift overs. Has taken 2 vital wickets today though in 1st 2 overs.

    Lolz.. Bowling consistently in 140's and took 2 key wickets. For Indians, this series is not important, they are working on the best combination as well as giving enough practise to the potential players. So, I dont think Pandya will cost the Indians, he is just getting read for the next year.

    Read the OP again. OP has already mentioned Pandya will perform here and there but he is not reliable. Even Stuart Binny used to perform here and there but that doesn't mean he was a genuine all rounder.

    I’d hardly call taking AB’s wicket a “performance”. Just a loose shot from AB.

    This is ODI cricket sir. Most of the batsman do play loose shots and gift their wickets.

    Pandya is an investment. He is just 24. When he realises his strengths and responsibilities in the team, we can expect him to be more consistent. Good fielder and striker of a ball. Just needs more game sense. Expect him to improve.

    One word to describe it - fluke. Could have happened to any bowler, no skill there from Pandya.

    Is that Pandyas fault or AB fault for playing loose shot?
    There is possibility Pandya forced him to play a loose shot

    This wasn't in reference to the OP otherwise I would have probably quoted it, but to usual knee jerk reactions that were taking place in some threads.

    I really want to see Fahim Ashraf smacking him for three sixes in an over soon. Maybe the Asia cup will be when my wish is fulfilled.

    I hope team management looks at the overall performance of Pandya on this tour as opposed to his 2 wkts in today's match. Even Raina used to get wickets here and there. Pandya is just a part time bowler who will complete his full quota of overs 4 out of 10 times.

    It is not necessary that he should perform superlatively in every game he plays. No player ever does.
    In this tour Pandya has done better than tourists like Rahane, Dhoni and Jadhav.

    His performance in the first test, both with bat and ball, when everyone else was collapsing around him, itself speaks of his potential.

    And then there's his performance at the CT. He may have even single handedly won us the final, if not for that hack Jadeja.

    India's entire middle order is weak, but Pandya is one who has the potential to come good if given a few chances.

    Give him 20 more ODIs, he is very talented, and fast learner. His athleticism is bonus. His fielding has done some damage to oppositions alone. It's his first SA tour, he gets lots of benefit of doubt.

    His fielding made invaluable contribution in this series. Pandya has a killer instinct. Give him sometime, he will come good. He showed every bit of potential in every facet. Today he is touching more than 140 in his 6th over. Even kohli, rohit come to the party in their 3-4th year.

    As of the fourth ODI, his average speed was 130 kph. He doesn't get movement like Kumar either so it's clear that he has some ways to go before becoming a proper bowler.

    Faheem is no world class allrounder either but unlike Pandya, he isn't hyped as the next Imran Khan.

    You cannot replace Pandya who is the lone all rounder. A fast bowling all rounder is like gold dust. You cannot trash them that easily.

    Pandya can bat bowl and also field exceptionally. He contributes to the team in one way or the other. He is only 23. I am sure he will come good.

    Pandya is not the problem in this team. Its the No.4, 5 spots that is the weakest link in this Indian team. Ideally Pandya should come at No.7 and occasinally at No.5 when team needs huge hits.

    Replace Iyer/Karthik/Jadhav with Raina & Rahul.
