    Cut some slack man. You are trying reserves. WHat can he do with these guys. Boult is missing. Ferguson is missing.

    Blow it all up and start again, a clean sweep across formats might bring it.

    Kane needs to go in T20s, ODIs and Tests are fine.

    He's got too much going on atm and needs to give T20s away, it's neither his game and will give him a break.

    How about the fielding, it's been pathetic in both matches.

    We were the best fielding team in the world a few years ago now we're awful and involved in a comical mishap too often.

    Pant is an indian player and is currently warming the bench(thankfully). If you were actually watching the match you would have noticed that they showed him on camera as well. So I can talk about him whereas Rayudu isn't even part of this squad so why were you having discussions about him today?

    We've been an ordinary fielding team for several years... a lot of fielding has to do with attitude and under Kane the standards have dropped big time. With McCullum he held them to a standard and he would drill that into them. It's the same with India who have improved immensely under Kohli who puts a lot of importance on fielding.

    NZ threw away this game because they came out trying to hit 240+ and ended up with mere 130 odd runs on a wicket where 160 would have been a winning total.

    Credit to India too because they put that fear in NZ with their stunning chase in last game. That's what great teams do they force opponents to make mistakes trying to do something 'extra' when it's not required.

    We lost this game because our batsmen thought 130 would be enough 12 overs in.

    I know this is too early and we have done Jack in terms of winning silverware for some time but this middle order with Rahul, Iyer and Dube started to give me hope again. Put Pandya in the mix and we have a dynamic and explosive middle order to support our ATG top order. At the very least refreshing to see a team building process without the likes of TTFs. If Kuldeep could get his shitz together we are good for next few years LOI wise.

    For T20s:-

    Rohit
    Rahul
    Kohli
    Iyer
    _______
    Dube
    Pandya
    Kuldeep
    Shami
    Chahal
    Bumrah

    Dube and Pandya are both solid hitters while Iyer is a reliable player who also can hit big sixes as per match situation.

    Sir ji, I will tell you some good news. Pannauti pant cost India the odi series vs Australia in 2018 in India, World Cup semi final and also several other games this year. In fact India lost the first game vs Australia only when pant played. The moment he was swapped with Rahul, India won both games and hence the series.

    Pannauti pant should focus only on test cricket or forget keeping and play as a pure batsman.

    Dube and Pandya are both solid hitters while Iyer is a reliable player who also can hit big sixes as per match situation.
    If Bhuvi is fit he might come back. Dhawan will definitely come back. These guys won't allow their buddies to warm the bench even though Dhawan is completely unfit for T20.

    Release speed is the same. But of the pitch it is different. Shami is very quick of the pitch. Bumrah actiong itself is a huge advantage. His release point is much later so a 145k ball from him would look like 150k because he gains a distance advantage at the point of release. Also he comes at an angle. And above all without any change in action he bowls slower ball, yorkers, bouncers, slow bouncers. So it is hard to line up against him.

    Dhawan should focus only on ODI cricket now. I think he still is very good for ODIs but I don't see his place in T20 team now.

    Pannauti pant should focus only on test cricket or forget keeping and play as a pure batsman.
    That is good news for all indian cricket fans not only me. Khushiyaan baant ne se badhti hai, share it with naveen sir also.

    India are coming into form ahead of the World T20. Pandya needs to be in the team and that is them set.

    I rank them as favourites for the World T20.

    If you are talking about me then I was one of those who wanted Rahul in the LOI team only on one condition and that was to keep wickets just like Rahul Dravid because as a batsman alone I won't rely on KL Rahul. Keeping wickets has improved his confidence and game just like Dravid did.

    Yes boss. Look man I totally agree with your view on pant but I still believe he can turn things around. He is young and clearly talented. So let him focus on test cricket in domestics or perhaps tests in general as Saha isn’t young. He can forget about odi unless he can play as a proper batsman. For now he is a definite no in odi and t20.

    You can't have both Dubey and Pandya in the same team lol. I would rather give Shaw/Gill a chance. Much better than Railu Kattas like Pandya or Dubey.

    In LOI's he is getting tough competition from Rahul, Samson and Bharat. It won't be easy for him there. In tests also I think Saha will play for another 2 years. There is less competition in tests for his place.

    Yawn. As if NZ have been setting the world on fire with your ICC chokes. Perpetual bridesmaids. Atleast we thrash you in bilaterals.

    And those expressions were nothing compared to the looks on Kane's, guptill s and choker Boult's faces after the final.

    India are that kid that studies hard and aces the mock exams. Then comes the Finals which are actually important and worth something, they fail badly because they thought they were prepared thinking what was in the mock exam was going to covered again in the Final.

    Maybe. NZ are that kid that slogs his backside off and fails in both mocks and in the finals.

    Nah, we do average in the mock and do better in the Final

    First team in history to lose a WC despite not losing the Final.

    I full well expect us to improve, it's the confidence and team management I have a issue with and that could be a concern.

    Either way, I hope we meet again in the WC KOs because I feel it will be deja vu for Virat and the boys

    Right. Rankings in tests, your number of ICC tournaments won, bilateral record against top 8 nations are clear indicators of that .

    We've made the last 2 Finals of the last 2 WCs.

    Drew one and lost the other to the GOAT cricket nation on their home turf in our first ODI game in Aus in years.

    The last time India made a WC Final outside India, Bumrah was still in his diapers and George Bush was still president of the USA.

    Dude, they're playing more T20Is because of the World T20. When the World T20 is over, they'll probably go back to 2/3-match T20I series again.

    Don’t worry India will win the World Cup in 2023.

    Besides India have been world number 1 in tests for the past 4 years. Test is what matters mate.
