Of COURSE , AGE IS A NUMBER
by Shilpa Mehta on Jan 31, 2017 10:37 AM  | Hide replies


On what base or criteria should we select any team : Age OR Performance ??

What is the use of selecting a 20 year so called young player who is not performing ??

Is Team selection a GOVT JOB , which needs upper age limit to get selected ??
NO - - THEN ??

Any fit player can easily play up to
38 - 40 yrs of age .

Better have a 35 year player who is putting all his experience & winning matches for the country .
Team MUST always have correct blend of experience & few young upcoming players .

Can we win all the matches if we select all young new players , like Under 21 Team ??

NO - -

Raina , Yuvraj , MSD , Nehra all are experienced players & are doing good job at the moment .

REMEMBER , NO PLAYER CAN PERFORM IN 100 PERCENT MATCHES HE PLAYS - -

Small Correction my dear. All these oldies you are talking about all are useless nowadays. They perform in one match by making huge score & remains in the team for 10 matches without performance.

But today's youngsters may not perform in 2 matches & scores in remaining matches. Present youngster are match winners like Bumrah, Pandya, Kedar,Rahul, Manish pandey etc.

But Useless Nehra gave 16 runs in his last over & also went wicketless in first match. It was Bumrah who won the match for India. Veterans like Yuvraj & Dhoni so far peformed only in 1 match.

Nehraji Age is ofcourse a number & not alphabets. not only it is age, but there r several areas concerned with human activities other than age where people have to encounter with numbers. if they ought to think u. itwillspell a doomsday 4 them. e.g if a person writes his bank a/c no erroneosly & deposits huge amt of money,which also goes without notice of bank official, D amt gets credited 2 wrong party,D party who gets credit, has every chance to withdraw someone else's money, close D A/C & Chalte bano.Thus do not take NUMBERS LIGHTLY. B'cos soometimes it may prove costly. Then instead of net pratise . 1 may have 2 hang with D nets.

23-3-2003 RICKY PUNTER took us on ride but AASHISH spell was 10 overs no maiden 57 runs no output Javgal was most generous to give 87 runs in just 10 overs while ZAK was kind enough to give 67 runs in 10 overs only BhAJJI GOT 2 WICKETS IN 10 OVERS spell at cost of 49 odd runs so it was perfect mess on 23-3-2003 by SAURABH and SACHIN as we won toss and lost the match poor decision making of DADA

INDIAN T20 TEAM SELECTION LOOKS FAULTY
by damodaran mohan on Jan 30, 2017 05:40 PM

Yes full marks to vintage Nehra for the brilliant bowling although I do not agree with him on age factor especially for a fast bowler.For T20 where only 4 overs are bowled mostly in 2 spells it is easier to maintain the fitness level but for 50 Over games Nehra himself looked woefully short of fitness and form in the practice match against England at Mumbai. Now coming to the Nagpur T20 match full marks to Bumrah for his match winning death overs but still India were lucky too with at least two crucial wrong decisions going their way.I feel it is not the best T20 Indian side with the selection itself looking faulty with exclusion of Kedar Jadav and another young pacer all-rounder who must be identified in the coming IPL.Again while Srs like Dhoni and Yuvi are Ok for 50 overs game where batters get more time to settle down however in T20 you don't have the luxury and the two-some are unable to get into the grove or rotate the strike quickly especially on such difficult wickets.Yuvi was looking helpless unable to connect as seen umpteen times in the past in T20 matches.I think at Banaglore Rishabh Pant should replace either Yuvi or Dhoni.It is going to be a high scoring game and let's hope Virat wil play longer at least till the 15 over.Regarding England Eoin Morgan must be kicking himself for having lost a game in his pocket till the 20th over!Joe Root was the main culprit playing from over no.3.1 to 19.1 for paltry 38 runs!T20 doesn't permit such luxuries.

Wish our cricketers let their bat & ball do all the talking for them & shut their blah, blah & blah. We won yesterday from the skin of our teeth when we should win comfortably with full authority. Tho' we batted 1st yesterday, team must focus on winning with big margins by batting 1st.

Our batting looks strong only on Paper and it was a sheer luck that we won yesterday.We do not look like a champion team now in one day and T 20 in home conditions and will be a cause of worry in England

Home conditions dont give us advantage anymore because pitches dont help spinners that much, scores were in excess of 330 and other teams have also played in India in IPL. So there is no such thing as home advantage anymore.

Like Raina,Dhoni,Yuvraj must not get selected in T20s for ever. They can perform once in 10 matches
