  • Bakvas selecters ever

  • 'We are looking at him(Shankar) at No.4'!!! He will not be No.4, given Rayudu who unfortunately not there with 3 hundreds with an average better than Butler & Williamson-Shankar(0) & Karthik(0). In addition to that, Mr. Rahul 343 runs minus 100 vs Zimbabwe making 243 runs in 12 innings. With all this absurdity, Pandya should now play at No.4 and Shankar at No.7 with Jadeja at No.8. Mixing the bag with 3 spinners including Jadhav and 5 medium/fast bowlers!!

  • Everything is fine but in my opinion rishabh should be in the squad at the place of rahul coz rahul is just a back up opener he has failed brutally in middle order so rishabh should be picked as he is a middle order batsman who can open the innings if needed also brings the needed x factor to the team. Otherwise team is good and happy to see shankar there

  • Vijay shankar is not really good either in batting or bowling , he cant be considered as a match winner, we already have Hardik as an all rounder .. Rayudu have been a better option as he brings his experience and stability in the middle order. Nevertheless there is no point in blaming.. Hope players who got selected utilizes this opportunity to perform for India and bring back the cup..

  • I think Rayudu should be taught a lesson , for mocking own team mate , in a ridiculous way . Rayudu cannot be oversmart than the BCCI . So shut up and wait for the chance again . In last few matches Rayudu ‘s form is pathetic , and Shankar has played exceptionally well .

  • Whoever thinks that vijay shankar is good for No 4. Should not forget the Nidas trophy final.. and what he is doing now in IPL. What has he done in the international cricket? is there any match wining performance from him? No.4 is crucial for any team and we have lost that prime position. He is dump as stuart binny.. how come he is the best fit? Is the most talented player to hold that position? Get lost selection board

    Rambo FedrasRambo Fedras7 दिन पहले
  • We haven't seen him playing consistently then how come he will fill the gap of no 4 position . He will become great players in future but currently he is not fit for WC tour ..... It's sad that no one has conquered no 4 spot after Yuvi...... Its better to go with kartihk instead of him ..

  • One of the worst cricketer is Vijay Shankar. If u see his batting there is no power and no timing. And even in his bowling no pace, every one can hit at least 15 runs in his over. And definitely you will that we selected a waste guy. It's totally waste selection. Lets put Raina and yuvraj back. Then it will be perfect middle order.

  • Pant should be preferred over Dhoni he has much greater strength and talent than Dhoni and more agile. Dhoni is past . Pant is future. I am surprised why you selectors have made gross mistakes in your selection of players. Vijay Shankar has a lot to learn in cricket. He has let down SRH many times. He should be omitted from World cup team. Ambati Rayudu is lot better than him. Please give chance to Pant and Ratudu. One more request Virat is a capable batsman but a bad captain . He has attitude problem and scolds other team mates . It is better to have Dhoni as a captain who is a cool headed man and more experienced than Virat. As a well wishes of Indian cricket team please reconsider your selection and make necessary changes. Thank you.

  • For me probably this is the best team for WC2019. But MSK Prasad said that Karthik is a best wicket keeper than Pant. I won't agree on this. Pant has not been selected only because of his careless attitude in the field. If we compare talent wise then Pant has advantages over Karthik.

  • As harsh it may sound on Rayudu people, Vijay Shankar grabbed his opportunities in every single game. He has shown the temperament which Rayudu could only in one 90 against NZ. And comparing with KL Rahul is not possible- because KL is back-up opener, while Rayudu was slotting for number 4. So the team selection has been great with respect to the performances. Sorry for Rayudu- but this is the truth.

    • +Nikhil Singh They are Your views and I respect it bro, but I personally did not find Rayudu temperamentally strong. He has scored only one 90 in difficult situation. I think Vijay Shankar can bat. Adding to the fact, India don't have any bowling option in top 5 adds to the misery of Rayudu. Rayudu had average of 30.87 in 10 games in 2019. Shankar had 33 in 5 innings. Shankar fields well and can bowl 2-4 overs. His technique is also good and he showed temperament. That is why I said Rayudu needed to score a big match winning 100 apart from 90, otherwise he is as good a batsman as Shankar is. Yes even I hope that we lift the WC]19 for MSD- but the big threat is England for me I think.

    • Karthik has performed and won matches in crunch situation many times compared to Pant. On the other hand, Shankar has done really well in whatever limited opportunities he was given. Rayudu's saviour would have been another match winning innings or another bowling option in top 5.
