Well in a low scoring match against Afghanistan Pandya gave more than 50 runs in his 10 overs. Apart from this there were maximum wide balls from his side. There are five bowlers and if Pandya alone gives away more than 50 runs in his 10 overs then 6 wide balls which is 56 runs. If he gives away close to 1/4 of the runs then how is this economical. Poor bowler.
Jadeja has the best record against West Indies as proven last year. So he should replace Kuldeep Yadav and Pant should replace Vijay Shankar. They should try out DK instead of MSD. The same team should be retained against Bangladesh.
Asofnow not to panic. The role of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kholi and Hartik Pandiya be made clear. We do not want many bombshell untill some one is needed to carry the bat right from the beginning and not like a relay race where the baton is changed. That is what has happened. The way the Afganistan match was talked as if it is going to be a pracice. To day, bangladesh and Srilanka has a goo spin bowling option and our batmen should know how to know to handle the spin and score with the required run rte. No reckless irresponsible shots like KL Rahul and Virat Hholi has played. Then any one can play a long innings.Once the play the first 20 over, then the match can be made interesting. So the openers should commit to play the first 20-25 overs. Please insist all the players that they have to play the basics in cricket. Not to play any loose/careless reverse sweep etc.,

Replace Hardik Pandiya. He is an expensive bowler. He neither scored runs nor bowls properly. He gave away almost 1/4 of the total runs scored in a low scoring match. In his 10 overs he gave 51 runs with more than 6 wide balls. Shankar is doing his job well.
In an interview Jadhav has already made it clear that the middle order is not getting much of chance in the middle to settle. In addition to that he can also bowl but Kohli is not using him since last few matches. Any new replacement will again take its time to settle. Jadhav has already played few matches and now will take less time to settle.
Afghans has exposed Indian batting and if necessary actions not taken we are waiting disaster to happen... KL Rahul should be warned against playing for himself and not the team. Instead of having Vijay and Jadhav who are no specialists we can have Pant and Jadeja. And lastly Kartikh should replace Dhoni. By doing this we will have 5 proper bowlers, a good batsman at no.4 in Pant and a good keeper batsman in Karthik...
