India in New Zealand ODIs, 2019

Post by prasen9 » Tue Jan 15, 2019 4:07 pm

I hope we can get Gill, Kedar, Rayudu, Karthik are all given five games in New Zealand. That way we have enough data about their capabilities against the moving ball. Put in Shankar too.

Dhawan, Rohit, Gill, Rayudu, Kedar, Karthik, Shankar, Kuldeep, Chahal, Siraj, Khalil.

There is no use to winning this series. We must get as much data as possible.

If you want drop one of Dhawan and Rohit and put in Jadeja.

The ODI team should again be old especially given that Pandya, Rahul, and Bumrah were withdrawn. Here are the old and the young:

Old: Dhoni (37), Kedar, Dinesh, Dhawan, Tirupathi (33)
Young: Gill (19), Khalil (21), Kuldeep, Siraj (24), Shankar (27)

This Karan guy has managed to spill coffee on India’s roadmap to preparing for world cup, he is old enough and mature and could have edited what the impressionable boys spoke and could have mentored them what not to speak on tv shows.

No way he'll do that as he will miss out on all the publicity.

True. It's not his prerogative to "mentor" these two adults who should have known better what to say on National TV. On the contrary the more Masala and controversy, it's better for his show so why would he edit that out.

Irrespective of his intentions, the net result is that this issue is now out in the open. I am glad that some action is being taken. Rahul is completely replaceable. Wrt Pandya, it is best that we find some alternative to him because anyone can get hurt. Gill, if successful, can replace Rayudu. Rahul would perhaps never be even given the chance to.

On another note, our record in New Zealand is abysmal. 10-21. I am hoping that the -11 can at least be brought down one or three matches.

I think this New Zealand team is better than current Australian team and we can probably get a sign of how India is going to fare in worldcup in this series. I wish Dhoni gets to play all the matches which apart from giving the match practice he needs, also would even out the extreme wave of luck he has been surfing on during Australia series! 4-5 lifes in one match with extemely low strike rate especially for 6-7 overs until he finds his touch may work out in bilateral series where nothing much is stake but not in the worlds.I go by stats and data and these two links sumup his stats of late.
But i am afraid the over supportive team management will fix it up to have some one else play instead of him in NZL and seal his place for World Cup.
He is in the bottom performers in a sample of similar middle order batsmen compared across all teams

Thank you for the data Srini. The second link did not work for me. But, the first link is very interesting. I thought Dhoni was unable to get singles. But, his dot ball % is the same now or about the same. His 4 hitting ability has drastically diminished and his performance in the last 10 overs is bad. As I have been saying, there is no way to play him except at #4. If one of our openers are hurt, send him in as an opener and ask him to hit over the top. I think he can hit over the top but when there are 4 and 5 fielders outside the circle now, he cannot pierce them. Maybe he is a split second slower due to worse reflexes.

Ideally, of course, he can get hurt (I do not wish it on anyone but this is one exception :-)) just mildly so that he is out of the WC but gets well soon after it :-) Let's have Karthik keep and find the best bat to replace Dhoni whoever it is: Pant, Gill, Iyer, etc.

Poor fielding from Chahal, Kedar(simple catch dropped), Rayadu. Doesn't look like a good fielding unit at the moment. Although chahal picked up 2 good catches on his own ball.

It is fun to watch the two leggies play in tandem. I hope they get to play as first choice players together. And are told that if they do not work hard on their batting and fielding, then Jadeja will play instead of them.

Complete idiocy to take Rayudu back into the XI. He got a life first ball, and was beaten all ends up second ball. (He got a four off that first-ball edge). On 6, he was actually caught behind (the replay showed) but nobody appealed. Now he ends not out, and bolsters his average. Ridiculous!

Rayudu looked very ordinary in the few balls he faced. After being dropped in the last game against Australia, he makes a comeback for NO reason. It was a great time to give Shubman Gill a go for 3 games and see how he fares...would love to see one of Prithvi/Mayank/Shubman get into the WC team instead of Rayudu.
