Even bigger joke is him in playing 11 :P

Nah.😂

He was doing so well at no.5. As this isn't part of super league this was best time to give Gaikwad full series as opened and Venky as allrounder. Trust this moron management to screw it up.

Rahul himself admitted that once rohit comes back he'll drop himself to middle order so was a great chance to try ruturaj. Doesn't make sense not trying him esp if Venky Iyer is not going to ball. Might as well play a specialist batsmen in his place.

Lol, ODI main bhi muh kala!!

 

Kohli looks at Score caard, oh 50 ho gaya, Avg maintained hai, chalo chala jaye!!

Why didnt venky bowl a few overs? And people want him to be test captain. 

 

Its stupid.
If you want a pure batsman, play Sky.
Y play iyer.

n today bowlers went for runs, so it was apt to bowl him.. 

Cant believe we are losing to this SA side..

+ 1 to this.
No point rahul opening.
He was doing good at no 3.

I think Dravid should take complete control of the team. Anywayz there's a new captain for all formats.
Should make better changes and get some sense back and not follow what was happening in the past

Till when we are going to excuse Dravid?

 

Kohli has resigned. Rohit is injured. Rahul is new captain and still sh*t is going on in team selection which means the entire blame falls on the coach. Team selection cost us test series, same is happening in ODI too.

Well, everyone said who cares we are winning so many Bilateral series when we can't win an ICC Trophy. Captaincy change has made sure we don't win these bilaterals too now. This team and it's performance will find it tough to beat even Bangladesh let alone a top tier team. Everyone used to jump quickly to blame Shastri/Kohli combo when we lose, now who they gonna blame?

I said it before, I say it again, KL Rahul should not even be a captain of a club team. He has Zero qualities of being a good leader. His stupidity of opening the innings made sure we didn't had a stable and in form opener in Gaikwad and then again we didn't had the finishing power. Then he goes on to bat in test mode both games and kills all momentum right at the start. We got respectable totals because of Dhawan, Kohli, Thakur in first game and Dhawan, Pant, Thakur in second game. Rest all are in SA for vacation.

Kohli has 9 50+ scores in his last 15 ODI's and everyone is quick to say he isn't in form. What more people want. Can't make a century after century. Still doing much better than most in team. BCCI will soon realize what blunder they have done by this Captaincy saga. Especially in tests. Ganguly and Jay shah are the worst thing to happen in Indian cricket administration since the Greg Chapell saga.

Our bowling barring Bumrah looks so pedestrian.

Bhuvi needs to go. No pace, no movement, no death bowling. He is a liability.

Ashwin too needs to be axed from white ball and new crop like Bishnoi etc needs to be a given a go.

Thakur though expensive is a wicket taking bowler and plus his extra runs with bat justify his selection.

Venky Iyer was promoted too soon in national team. He needs more season of domestic and IPL to rise up.

On a side note we need an opener like Shaw. Who smashes the ball from the start. Even if he works in 3 out of 5 games we will be set for a big one in those 3 games. Just like Sehwag used to do.

In last game make Gaikwad open. Push Rahul to 5, give Sky a game at 4. Pant will bat 6 followed by Thakur. This gives more batting depth. Although with this bowling attack I have less hope.

Rahul is sh*t. Better to make pant VC in odi’s. From what you can hear on the stump mic, he seems to understand the game and have a good head despite the shots he plays. 
 

and surya needs to play and play for the next 15-20 matches even if he doesnt score much. The way he walks to bat reminds me of viv richards from whatever little ive seen of his game. Full of attitude and self confidence. We need such players in the team currently.
