Guess what! SHIKHAR DHAWAN dropped for pakistan match! Rohit and virat will open, Yuvi one down, Raina, MSD,..Ashwin dropped and Sodhi replaces him..India brought him for huge sum.Paki looks as favorites
with a poor run rate of (-)2.35 India are virtually out of the completion. Even if we win next three matches semi final birth is not sure. This reminds me of 2012 WT20 where India were eliminated even after losing just one match against Australia. I don't know why selectors have picked up out of form players like Yuvraj,Raina,Shikhar etc. and why did they drop Manish Pandey after scoring match winning century is still a mystery. I will be surprised if India reaches semi final this time..
With a poor run rate of (-)2.35 even if we win next three games we have to depend on others to qualify for semis. This was bound to happen with 4 non performers Shikhar, Raina,Yuvi and Jadeja. If selectors showed some courage to pick players like Manish Pandey we could have save our face. Indian fans like me should be ready for another heart-break
Indian team thought they are going to face tennis ball in spin?Their wrong shot selection and over confidence that if I fail others will do made them in.Being favorite for the title they must not take other teams lightly instead learn from Gyle as how to hit the ball at will for a 4 or 6,Simple
Is SHIKHAR DHAWAN playing in the team for a mere show-off ? What is his contribution with the bat ?
ROHIT SHARMA bats once in fortnight & that too when INDIA IS BATTING FIRST & when pitch is FLAT. He invariably throws his wicket while chasing a target.
SURESH RAINA is a flat pitch bully & becomes a dead fish on fast & spinning tracks with uneven bounce. YUVRAJ SINGH has already past his prime. He no longer look even the 1/3 of the player he once used to be during his peak. He miss the simple scoring opportunities even full tosses.
RAVINDRA JADEJA is only a good fielder, An average bowler & a terrible batsman. I feel pity on the intelligence of those who call Jadeja an all-rounder. He has not been scoring with the bat for a significantly long duration.
HARDIK PANDYA is a good fielder, an average bowler & one dimensional average batsman. His technique is horrible & he won't survive against good bowling.
DHONI ALWAYS BLAME OTHERS. Sometimes it's PITCH, Sometimes it's CONDITIONS, Sometimes it's BOWLERS, Sometimes it's BATSMEN. When conditions are favourable he promotes himself up to FINISH THE GAME but when conditions are supportive to BOWLERS, HE NEVER TAKE THE ONUS TO FINISH THE GAME.

Nehra leaked too many runs in death overs that proved very costly for us in the end.
Some people call Ashwin as the best spinner. But he was the most expensive of all spinners. Even Raina bowled better than him on Spinners paradise. Ashwin has a long way to go to call himself best if he can't take more wickets on spinner friendly tracks.

You exercise entire control, so excuses for Pitch conditions are not valid for hosts! Put it simple - Indians are no longer good against spinners on a turning track.
