Gurkeerat, Mandeep, Hardik, KP, Axar, Tewatia, Hooda, Samad, Sarfaraz, Dube, Sundar, Parag etc etc.. what is common for them? They are all lower MO (5-7) batters for their teams in IPL. What do we learn from them? The gap i.e. there b/w domestic and IPL. How? 1️⃣
The gap in playing genuine quick pacers. Why? Simple reason, not enough quality in domestic. So what can be done? Learn from MI and how they groomed Hardik and KP. You need to be patient with them and have to make them play such bowling day in and day out irrespective of the..2️⃣
.. result. On field experience is the best experience and IPL is the platform that can help these players learn without expectations and if given consistent run, you can see the result from the 3rd-4th season (I know its long but that's how it is and its a domestic tournament)3️⃣
Who look good backups for likes of Pandya and Jadeja in the Indian team? Right now None. Sadly noone in the above names have been given that run till now. However, in 2-3yrs if consistent run is given then Dube and Tewatia can be our preferred T20 finishers by 2023.4️⃣
Axar Patel as bowling AR looks a good option as of now but the chances he gets in batting is pretty less. 5️⃣
And yeah Sundar as well!!

" Yorkers mat daalna. (Don't bowl yorkers), else you'll get hit for runs"
23rd Jan 2016:
Ind vs Aus: Sydney 5th odi:
Aus had already won the series 4-0 and India were gearing up for World T20I by playing a 3 T20s vs Aus that were going to be played in India later that year.1️⃣ Image
India had chosen likes of @Jaspritbumrah93 and @hardikpandya7 for the T20 series. However, there was 1 last ODI to be played and thanks to an injury to @BhuviOfficial, Bumrah was handed over the ODI cap and it was the 44th over Aus cruising at 282/5, Dhoni brings in Bumrah...2️⃣ Image
.. and worried about being hit, Dhoni tells Bumrah to focus on the basics and avoid bowling yorkers. Bumrah gets hit for 10 runs in that over. He comes back in the 49th over and tells his captain to let him bowl yorkers since this is the only thing he knows.. 3️⃣ Image

Ah! this poll. I have seen some great accounts like @deep_extracover say it is very straight forward. but actually it isn't. Infact my analysis will vote Kohli in both the formats. Below are stats comparison of Abd before Kohli debut, till the rule change & until he retires1⃣ ImageImageImage
As we can see there is very little to chose from Abd and Virat in ODIs. @deep_extracover is brave enough to say no brainer for ABD in ODIs. Indeed, Abd's best format was ODIs. His peak coincided with Kohli's debut. The greatness of Kohli lies in how early he found his peak!!2⃣
and amount of consistency he has shown over the 2 periods. He has been in the top 10 avgs in both the periods (No. 1 post 2012 Oct) and has maintained more than par averages. Batting at No. 3 and 4 in ODIs, there is hardly anything to separate these 2 legends since 2012. 3⃣ Image

All teams have found their near best XI (exception SRH:needs to get Samad in). The gulf b/w Top 3 teams and bottom 5 is significant and therefore, expect KXIP to throw in some panic among the 4,5,6th ranked teams. Also, you can count CSK and SRH out at your own risk. 1️⃣
These 3 teams can also find hope in the way the no. 4th team (KKR) is playing atm. The two possible elimation atm looks that of #KKR and #RR .For KKR, its about form. For RR, Stokes injury might help them get Butler back at the top. Butler-Uthappa look formidable at the top. 2️⃣
Smith's return to form augurs well but there is no sign of progress in the way Samson has played his cricket in these years. Bat him at 3, ask him to hit 20 odd quick runs. Parag at 5 & Tewatia at 6 look real solid top 6. Get Curran at 7 which will help them leave Unadkat out3️⃣

9 Aug 1990:
19 year old Leg spinner @anilkumble1074 was selected for the tour of Eng. He debut in the 2nd test at Manchester. However, average outing (3-170 runs) meant he was soon dropped from the side for the next 2 years. 1️⃣
26th Nov 1992:
22-year old leggie was called back into the team after he picked up 13 wickets in the Irani Trophy against Delhi while playing for ROI. He hit the bulls eye this time as he picks up 6-53 in the 2nd inngs of the 2nd test in Johannesburg. Overall 18 wkts.. 2️⃣ an avg of 25. He continued his prime form when England toured India later in the year. Picked up 21 wickets at an avg of 19.8
On 13th Mar 1993, Kumble became the fastest Indian bowler to reach 50 wickets by dismissing Campbell (Zim) in his 10th test match. 3️⃣

All players have certain weaknesses imo. mental strength defines a player despite fallacies. Among the 90s born Ind players, I find Iyer ahead of everyone (the way he seized opportunity by attacking Unadkat is a great testimony). He has in him to be one of the ODI greats! 1️⃣
While currently I don't see him adding much value in the other 2 formats with both Rohit and Virat in the team but going forward He will surely be one who can captain Indian team in all 3 formats. 2️⃣ other players who have impressive mental strength and adaptability are
Imo, SKY, Harshal, Axar Patel, Tewatia, Dube, H Pandya, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Pant, Gill, Sarfaraz, Markhande, B Aparjith,Parag, Sundar, Chahal, D Chahar, Bishnoi, Vihari, Bumrah, Saini, Natarajan, Gurkeerat, Arshdeep, Abhishek Sharma, Tushar, Unmukht.3️⃣

🔥 @rahultewatia02 🔥
@rajasthanroyals thread:
Quality 1: Temperament
"Let's take the game deep and wait till the the 15th over. We both have the capabilities to smack 60 runs in the last 5 overs"

Tewatia who had just come into the crease, said the above words to @ParagRiyan..1️⃣
.. who probably had the same plans, got the go-ahead from his senior partner. Like an elder brother, he reminded Parag of his capabilities, and made sure young @ParagRiyan has the confidence to execute his plans. Parag obliged. @rajasthanroyals were 94/5 @/15overs.2️⃣
Both batsmen (@rahultewatia02 7 (11), @ParagRiyan 12 (14)) batting at less than a 100 SR.

2nd Quality: Confidence and Ownership

"You take a single 1st ball. I have a plan against @rashidkhan_19"
Royals had taken 18 off Sandeep's over. For the 1st time in the inngs,..
3️⃣ Riyan Parag hitting Khaleel for a sixTewatia had his share of aggression started against Sandeep.
