A lot of Indian hopefuls currently in the IPL will be nervous right now, desperate to make a mark in the IPL games leading upto April 15th.

I wonder if SKY will be picked, now that KL Rahul is beginning to show some form.

My guess of the likely 15 players chosen for the World Cup for the Indian team

1. Virat Kohli
2. Rohit Sharma
3. M S Dhoni
4. Rishabh Pant
5. Jasprit Bumrah
6. Bhuvi Kumar
7. Y Chahal
8. Kuldeep Yadav
9. Hardik Pandya
10. Deepak Chahar
11. Kedar Jadhav
12. K L Rahul
13. Mohammed Shami
14. Shiekar Dhawan
15. Ravi Jadeja

IMO, Umesh Yadav will lose out to Shami.
Sir Ravindra will be preferred to Krunal Pandya
Deepak Chahar will get a chance instead of the more experienced Ishant Sharma
Vijay Shankar will lose out to Hardik Pandya
Kedar Jadhav will prevail over the likes of Mayank Aggarwal and Manish Pandey
Dhawan will sneak in and SKY will be ignored again.

This I think will be especially important while choosing pace bowlers. From an Indian perspective, the following are worth considering IMO

1. Jasprit Bumrah - not a big swinger of the ball but his accuracy and awkward angles making scoring difficult on any wicket. Automatic choice.
2. Bhuvi Kumar - Not in the best of form at present and leaking to many runs at the death but very likely to revel under English conditions. Certain choice.
3. Mohammed Shami: Currently going through something of a purple patch but I am no convinced of his ODI capabilities. Will probably be chosen but place in final XI depends on performance.
4. Deepak Chahar: Very good at the start of an innings and probably in the middle. Swings the ball and could do very well in England. Should go and be tried out.
5. Sandeep Sharma: Can be very effective if the ball is swinging but not otherwise. IMO, also worth considering and his results could be better than expected in England.

Chahar and sandeep are crap. Other 3 ok. I rather take spinner instead of a tuk tuk fast bowler.

Well, my team has 3 spinners in Yadav, Jadeja and Chahal. Personally I would not take Ashwin (either of them) or Chawla. No other spinner of worthwhile quality, certainly not that Mayank Paykhane.

IMO, Chahar is maturing as a bowler. He can swing the ball. If they are going to include a wild card bowler, my vote would be for him.

If you notice, I have NOT included Sandeep Sharma in my pick of the final 15.

There is something else. Over reliance on spinners has brought Indian teams of the past grief at crucial times, especially on wickets outside the subcontinent. Despite what Paddles also argues, I would exercise care in that department.

Once batsmen figure him out - and they invariably do - almost every "mystery spinner" falls flat on his face.

Well, I got 13 out of 15 right in my above prediction 2 days ago. DK instead of Pant Understandable) and Shankar instead of Chahar - not sure about that. Sharkar can bat of course but his bowling is slightly better than non-existent. That means India have only 4 pace options and one of them is an all-rounder. Pandya's batting might come in handy in the World Cup but not sure of his bowling on English wickets.

If they play Bhuvi, Shami and of course the Bum, IMO Shami should do the death bowling with the Bum and not Bhuvi.

I wonder if India would consider something off the wall like getting Pandya or Jadeja to open Narine style with Rahul or Dhawan and getting Rohit Sharma at #4 after Kohli?

I am still not comfortable with Rohit Sharma as an opener. He has forced himself into that position and despite some successes, I have this nagging feeling that he'll get out early in crucial games. But they will surely put him in #1.

The problem is the team lacks flexibility if you have to shoehorn 2 top spinners into the final XI.

1. Rohit Sharma
2. Shikar Dhawan
3. K L Rahul
4. Virat Kohli
5. Dhoni or DK
6. Kedar Jadhav or Vijay Shankar
7. Hardik Pandya (or Ravi Jadeja on spin-friendly wickets)
8. Bhuvi Kumar
9. Mohammed Shami or Kuldeep Yadav (Depending on the type of wicket)
10.Y Chahal
11.Jasprit Bumrah

The issue is that unlike in the T20 format, a team cannot afford to have a long tail in the 50-over game. Pandya and Jadeja are all rounders and both cannot be accommodated in the XI. Either can bat at #7 and the choice would be on the type of wicket. Of the specialsit bowlers, Bhuvi can bat at #8 in an ODI and for #9 Shami might be able to strike a few blows. From a batting perspective, K Yadav, Chahal and Bumrah are rabbits or will be under English conditions.

Australia’s World Cup squad: Aaron Finch ©, Jason Behrendorff, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa

So Australia leave out Handscomb and have no reserve keeper at all. Interesting strategy. SA is relying on Miller to glove man in an emegency. Eng have no issue with Buttler Bairstow.

I think if Carey gets injured for 3 or 4 games, Aussie will just send him home and bring Wade in from the A squad. Better than losing a batting spare – that's pretty smart given Carey is not exactly killing it like Gilchrist.

1 Finch © 2 Khawaja 3 Warner (in whatever order) 4 Smith/SMarsh
5 Stoinis 6 Maxwell
7 Carey
8 Pat
9 Starc
10 Jhye/Dorf/NCN/Lyon
11 Zampa

Virat Kohli©, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja

Rayudu gets axed. I'm not surprised to see no Pant. Karthik is the better gloveman, but I think Karthik's best days are rarer with the bat now. Rahul is more the capable for an odd game anyway being an IPL wicket keeper most years now. Dhoni was always going to be the #1 keeper due to his on-field captaincy. If you have a closer look, Kohli spends the last 20 overs down at long on and long off and Dhoni is in total charge of bowler rotation and field setting the entire game seemingly.

This is a massive rise for Shankar. He looks talented with the bat – and while his bowling is bog ordinary, at least its something seam up to contribute in an emergency or Hardik getting injured.

1 Rohit 2 Shikar 3 Kohli 4 Shankar/Rahul 5 Dhoni 6 Jadhav 7 Hardik 8 Kuldeep 9 Chahal 10 Shami/BK 11 Bumrah

Jadeja may play ahread of Chahal to lengthen the batting and improve the fielding. Krunal must be a lil miffed.

Doesn't matter how India try to plug it, they have a hole at 4. Its been years since Yuvi got sick – they still havn't solved it. And with Hardik at 7 – India's middle can fall away really fast with only Jadhav starring of late as Dhoni declines.

I don't think its the right move to drop Kohli down the order to 4. At all. You want to give him the best opportunity to bat a lot of overs. He's too good.

Bazinga :)

Tbf - it's India's only hole is the weak middle, esp at 4. They can make the tail solid if they want with Jadeja at 8 and BK at 9.

But Jadhav has been great. I expect him to continue on his merry way. I'm surprised they don't try promoting him to 4 or 5.

The seam attack is its best ever, the spin attack is going great guns and may one day be deemed its best ever.

The top 3 are magnificent. Jadav is an ace. Dhoni even with less batting is still a brilliant strategist in the field. India fans must like their chances.

Meanwhile NZ is sending a very sad bowling attack, CdG and Munro, and while solid, a slow scoring top order.

I don't know how the NZ bowling attack got so sad. This time last world cup, it was on fire. Absolute fire. Now its just dire.

NZ needed to form the bowling unit around Scott Kuggeleijn to work this into a good one. They missed a golden opportunity.

I agree with the hole at #4 but Rayudu was never the man to fill it. He has NOT international standard - never was.

But while Kohli definitely needs to open or come in at #3 in T20 games, #4 is perfectly fine in 50 over games. In fact, might even be better if he gets a chance to watch how the ball is moving and gets to talk to the first man getting out. But if they insist on having Kohli at #3, then my idea of getting Rahul and Dhawan to open with Rohit Sharma at #4 will solve the problem. The keeper at #5 followed by Kedar Jadhav or Vijay Shankar (either of whom can act as a risky 6th bowling option). #7 has to be Pandya or Jadeja with Bhuvi at#8. If you drop Bhuvi then both Pandya and Jadeja must be included at #7 and #8 with Shami, Chahal/Yadav and Bumrah to follow.

India MUST have at least 3 pacemen going into any game and on some wickets like Headingley, even 4. Over reliance on spin in England will definitely backfire big-time.

In a T20 game, opposing batsmen do not have much time to get used to a spin bowler under the prevailing conditions and that's why in most cases the spinner's first 2 overs or so effective. If the same batsman is at the crease, usually they score more freely off the next 2 overs. But in a 50-over game, the batsman has better opportunity to get used to a spinner and still have sufficient of his overs left to slog later. The logistics work differently in a 50-over game.

Rohit is only a threat when he bats 40+ overs. Moving either Kohli or Rohit when they're among or the best in their position, and then bat after more wickets fallen or less time seems counter-intuitive to me.

Daanav wrote:The keeper at #5 followed by Kedar Jadhav or Vijay Shankar (either of whom can act as a risky 6th bowling option).


Jadhav has to be a lock. I'd play both unless Rahul suddenly looks like he can handle the middle order.

Jadeja can easily slot into 8. You just lose Chahal.

Daanav wrote: If you drop Bhuvi then both Pandya and Jadeja must be included at #7 and #8 with Shami, Chahal/Yadav and Bumrah to follow.


Shami has been impressive of late. I think BK is in a fight where he is now relying on batting.

Daanav wrote:India MUST have at least 3 pacemen going into any game and on some wickets like Headingley, even 4. Over reliance on spin in England will definitely backfire big-time.


Shami, Hardik, and Bumra is 3. If SHankar bats 4 you can get a few early overs between 10 and 20 out of him nicely. As for over-reliance on spin, the England team has been reliant on spin at home since 2015. Their whole bowling plan revolves around Ali and Rashid. When Stokes was injured/court/etc, they replaced him with Hales and Root bowled giving England 3 spin options.

Here's Headingly since 2015, you'll see spin has done fine with Ali and Rashid doing very well, and taken the most wickets. Even Duminy as a second spinner had a good day. England won all 4 games and played 2 spinners.

http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine ... pe=bowling

Look at the scorecards and its confirmed:

http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/1137 ... eland-2015 (Moeen motm - Duminy okay)

http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/1137 ... eland-2015 (Ali had a great day, Maxwell a good one)

http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/1801 ... n-eng-2018 (TOTAL SPIN DOMINANCE BOTH teams - England and India)

http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8499 ... f-eng-2016 (Pak destroyed by spin of Rash and Mo - Wasim does his job)

Teams really need to pay attention to modern England conditions.

I don't know what you're trying to claim here. I watch and follow far more 50 over cricket than t20. But I don't see any of this is relevant as against a seam bowler. I watch and follow a lot of England cricket as I support them ;)

England used Rashid as a death bowling option more and more. Moeen bowls earlier, Rashid later. Root sometimes bowls first over at the end of the powerplay. The point is, England has been winning at home with 2 front line spinners, and uses Root whenever Stokes is out (who is replaced with Hales). Spin to win is very much a valid way to go in England. Its certainly not Wood's heavy ball.

The reality is, the game has changed in England since 2015. Drastically. The pitches are flatter, its a kookaburra ball, and spin get through those middle overs, and even become a valid and great back end death option if a wrist spinner. Pak will play Imad and Shadhab both. Bet ya. NZ will think about it but probably get too nervous about a long tail and having Neesham having to bowl more early overs. But its on the cards. SA won't - and they keep losing there... despite having the champion stable of endless fast bowling talent. They've been getting smashed in England in ODI. Maharaj took 3 wickets the 1 game they did win in 2017 vs England, and Tahir 4 in their win over SL. Pak beat them with double spin there, India beat them with double spin there. And England beat them with double spin there.

http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine ... ew=innings

This won't be test match conditions like in the least. Its a lame kookaburra ball on roads. Spinners can take the pace off the ball and stem the scoring. Want to take them on, do so, but it gives the opportunity for wickets.

1) Looking at the BCCI squad again, I think they missed a trick by not picking Prithvi Shaw.
Rahul is lucky to be in the squad, after his disastrous tour last year.
Thing is, he has been found out - so every reason to believe he will be exposed again.
Unless he has worked on it, and sorted out his weakness.

But then he's only a back-up opener, if either Dhawan or Rohit fail badly.
Hopefully they won't.

2) While Vijay Shankar has impressed me of late with his SR, I've only ever seen cameos from him.
If he's batting as high as #4 in a 50-over game, he'll have to do a lot better than cameos.
He has to start thinking in terms of 70+ scores at an SR of at least 125.
I'm still not convinced - but that's also partly cos he has stolen Pant's spot.
And I do rate Pant - he's more than capable of getting a 70+ score.
And he'd do that at an SR of 140.

I disagree with MSK Prasad's statement that Pant or Karthik would come into the team only if Dhoni can't play.
Pant is worth taking a punt on - purely as a batsman.

3) Vijay Shankar's bowling is not at all convincing.
Is he going to be your 5th bowler? Or 6th? Or 7th (after Jadhav)?

4) Who will be the 5 BCCI mainline bowlers?
Bumrah, Shami, Bhuvi, Pandya, one of (Jadeja/Chahal/Kuldeep)?

6th bowler, Jadhav?

5) Their bowling capability apart, this looks like a long tail to me, esp if you don't play Jadeja.
After Pandya then you have 4 proper bowlers.
OK, so Bhuvi is an OK bat - but I wouldn't count on him getting more than 10-15 runs.


All in all, the more I look at this squad, the less convinced I feel.

Yesterday evening I thought this was a decent squad - capable of winning the Cup.

I still think, except for Pant, there isn't any glaring mistake I'd complain about.

But overall, is this a Cup-winning squad? I'm not convinced.

Everyone's been on and on about the #4 position, but I don't think that's the only problem.

Bhuvi can bat well enough to help with 20+ runs, especially if there is a higher order batsman at the other end. He can manage the #8 position in the line-up but if he is not playing, then Jadeja has to be included at #8, along with Pandya at #7. If you put Shami or Yadav at anything higher than #9, the tail gets too long and weak.

Dhoni has 3 functions here. Senior Wicket-keeper, middle order batsman with a finishing touch and adviser for Kohli. IMO Kohli is a poor captain and is not as good as MSD in getting the best out of his men.

Looking at the Indian squad again, I wonder if they could have picked Mayank Aggarwal instead of Vijay Shankar. Aggarwal would have been a solid #4 option giving flexibility to the batting lineup. Shankar is nominally in as an all-rounder but we all know that his bowling is little better than nonexistent. As a batsman, he is more in #5 or #6 category but those places are taken up by the wicket keepers and Jadhav.
Perhaps teams should be allowed 16 players ;)

england world cup priliminary ( provisional ) team has Joe Danley .

Jofra Archer not in England's preliminary World Cup squad

Hosts England go into the mega-tournament as the favourites

Jofra Archer hasn't been included in England's preliminary 15-man squad, led by Eoin Morgan, for the upcoming world cup. The pacer, however, has been included, along with Chris Jordan, in the 17-member squad for the five-match ODI series against Pakistan, and will be in contention for a place in the World Cup side depending on his performance in the series against Pakistan. England will finalise their final 15-man World Cup squad after the Pakistan series, which comes to an end on May 19.

While the batting line-up, which has been the pillar of England's ODI dominance in the last four years, has no surprises, the pace attack comprises of Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Liam Plunkett, David Willey and Tom Curran. The most surprising pick, however, is Joe Denly, who will serve as the back-up for the spin duo of Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.

The Barbados-born Archer, who completed his three-year qualification to become a British citizen on March 17, will be available for England selection for the first time. Archer, whose father is English, has a UK passport.

"In line with ICC regulations, we have to name a preliminary squad of 15 for the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup before April 23," Ed Smith, ECB's national selector, said on Wednesday. "However, all 17 players named in the Royal London ODIs against Pakistan can stake a claim to be in the final 15-man squad, finalised at the end of that series.

"The selection panel has been impressed with Jofra Archer's performances in domestic and franchise cricket. He is a very talented and exciting cricketer," Smith said.

Jordan, who has been out of the ODI side since September 2016, has come back in the reckoning after impressive performances against Sri Lanka and Windies in T20Is

England wc

Preliminary squad for world cup: Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Alex Hales, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, David Willey

Archer could have been included instead of Woakes. With their lineup, England don’t need Woakes’ batting and in present form, Archer is the better bowler.

Woakes is essential to England with all his batting, not to mention his death bowling. RCB used him so wrong its not funny. He's the world's best #8 in ODI.

Wood and Tom Curran are very very lucky to be there ahead of Archer. Wood has had one good tour of WI. That's it. Suddenly he thinks he's G McGrath. And being all vocal. PLunkett is on borrowed time, he has been great for England, but he's in decline. His pace is dropping reapidly.

Tom Curran is just ordinary. There's nothing special about him at all.

If Archer plays against Pak and does well - he will be in the WC squad. They will change it. One niggle and someone will get axed. He's the best bowler England has for limited overs. The entire world knows it.

Archer is the future of England bowling (tests as well). Everyone knows it. I expect to see him playing the Ashes at some point. Broad's place is in danger now.

He's young, fit, fast, tall, short run up, can bat wellish, he's a complete package. The WI lost a superstar.

Well, I somehow instinctively feel that England should have picked Archer. To me he seems like a natural limited overs bowler. I know that one cannot make decisions based on IPL but overall he seems like a good package. Whether it was instead of Tom Curran or Liam Plunkett it does not matter; he should have been part of the squad.

Not sure how this "preliminary" selection things works but I hope that Archer somehow gets his chance. If he does not, he could well become disilluisioned, which is not good fir a young sportsman.

:dance: ICC WORLD CUP 2019

https://m.cricbuzz.com/cricket-news/107 ... cket-plans

SRILANKAN TEAM

A day after naming Dimuth Karunaratne as the captain for the 2019 World Cup, Sri Lanka have announced their preliminary squad for the mega event, beginning in England on May 30. Having made a left-field choice while selecting the captain, the panel sprung further surprises with the inclusion of Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeevan Mendis, Avishka Fernando, Jeffrey Vandersay and Milinda Siriwardana in the 15-man preliminary squad.

Meanwhile, former captain Angelo Mathews is back in the set-up after having missed most of Sri Lanka's Southern Hemisphere sojourn with a left hamstring strain. He made a comeback into competitive cricket in the recently-concluded Super Provincial One Day tournament - which also acted as a selection trial tournament for the World Cup aspirants. Playing for Dambulla, Mathews scored 227 runs in four innings, including a century and a fifty.

Karunaratne's inclusion will mean that Sri Lanka will have a new opening pair with one of Avishka Fernando or Thirimanne partnering the skipper at the top of the order. Avishka, the 21-year old opener, has had modest returns since his debut during the home series against Australia in 2018 - but his ability to combine solid defensive skills with big-hitting prowess caught the attention of many. For Thirimanne, this is yet another comeback into the national team. Picked for his enormous experience, the stylish left-hander, who enjoyed a prolific time during the 2015 World Cup, last played an ODI in December 2017.

On the other hand, Kusal Perera, who underwent treatment for his hamstring injury, sustained during the tour of South Africa, has been passed fit and is expected to take the gloves from incumbent Niroshan Dickwella - whose poor recent batting form cost him a place in the squad.

The panel also kept faith in Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya de Silva - despite the pair not turning promise into performance at the highest level. Isuru Udana's power-packed batting during the South Africa series earned him his maiden World Cup call-up and he will link with Thisara Perera as the two pace-bowling all-rounders for captain, Karunaratne. Jeevan Mendis and Milinda Siriwardana will ad further depth to the set-up - two spinning all-rounders who can be used as floaters in the batting line-up.

Despite being deposed of captaincy duties, Lasith Malinga, who will probably feature in his fourth and last World Cup, will headline the bowling attack which also includes Suranga Lakmal and Nuwan Pradeep. Springing another surprise, the selectors have opted for leg-break bowler Vandersay ahead of mystery spinner Akila Dananjaya.

The selection panel has also included four standby players - Oshada Fernando, Kasun Rajitha, Wanindu Hasaranga and Angelo Perera - who will travel with the team for the showpiece event. While the last date for submission of the preliminary squad is April 23, teams can make changes to the squad until May 23; beyond which any changes needs to be ratified by the International Cricket Council.

Sri Lanka will fine-tune preparations for the World Cup with two One Day Internationals against Scotland, on May 18 and 21 and will follow it up with warm-up fixtures against South Africa and Australia. The 1996 champions begin their title challenge against New Zealand at the Sophia Gardens, Cardiff, on June 1.

Squad for the World Cup: Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Avishka Fernando, Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Perera (wk), Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Jeevan Mendis, Milinda Siriwardana, Angelo Mathews, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal, Jeffrey Vandersay, Nuwan Pradeep.

Standbys: Oshada Fernando, Kasun Rajitha, Wanindu Hasaranga and Angelo Perera

SOUTHAFRICAN TEAM

South Africa pick Nortje for 2019 World Cup; Mulder misses out

Anrich Nortje is expected to recover in time for the World Cup

Anrich Nortje is expected to recove
Injured fast bowler Anrich Nortje has been picked in South Africa's 15-man squad for the 2019 World Cup, while all-rounder Wiaan Mulder

South Africa have picked Andile Phehlukwayo and Dwaine Pretorius as the two all-rounders in the squad, while also putting their faith in the experience of an out-of-form Hashim Amla.

Squad: Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy, David Miller, Dale Steyn, Andile Phehlukwayo, Imran Tahir, Kagiso Rabada, Dwaine Pretorius, Quinton de Kock, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Hashim Amla, Tabraiz Shamsi

Accompanying Amla in the batting department is Aiden Markram, whose exceptional form in the domestic one-day competition was enough for him to edge out Reeza Hendricks.

The pace attack will be led by Kagiso Rabada and Dale Steyn, while the injured Lungisani Ngidi - who is expected to recover soon - has also been included. Imran Tahir and Tabraiz Shamsi have been picked as the two spinners, with JP Duminy bringing in part-time spin bowling to the attack.

Quinton de Kock is the only wicket-keeping option named in the squad, with the likes of David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen expected to fill in as back-ups.

South Africa will begin their 2019 campaign against hosts England at the Oval on May 30.

IMO both Hendricks and especially Morris should have been picked. I wonder if Morris' exclusion was part of the quota system.

:lolup: Pakistan omit Mohammad Amir from provisional World Cup

Mohammad Amir has endured poor form recently


Fast bowler Mohammad Amir has missed the cut as Pakistan announced 15-man provisional squad for the 2019 World Cup. The door may still be open for the quick to make a late entry as he and He and Asif Ali have been picked to play in the ODIs and T20Is in England. Teams have until May 23 to lock in their final squads for the showpiece event.

Senior batsman Mohammad Hafeez has been picked, but his inclusion will be subject to fitness. Hafeez suffered a hand injury earlier this year, and was even replaced by Salman Butt in the Lahore Qalandar's squad in this year's Pakistan Super League.

Pakistan's provisional squad: Sarfraz Ahmed (c), Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Abid Ali, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez (subject to fitness), Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Shaheen Afridi, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Hasnain

As many as 11 players in the 15-man squad were also part of Pakistan's Champions Trophy winning squad from 2017.

What I want to see is whether Hardikhead Pandya's strutting confidence and devil-may-care performances remain when he dons the Indian national (lighter) blues and becomes Hardik Pandya again. If he starts acting like shrinking violet in the World Cup, he should be tried for treason.

I have a feeling that the so-called "assassin" or IPL will turn out to be just an "ass" in the World Cup.

Not really. They won both Test matches in South Africa. I luckily watched that last wicket partnership live. After that they went off the boil big time.

That's what I mean. In that horrible MI blues he is the arrogant, strutting, gesticulating Hardikhead who seems to be able to hit any bowler to any part of the ground. But when it comes to doing his duties for India, he suddenly turns into a Hardikmouse scared of his own shadow and seeming to struggle getting his bat to ball.

What are the rules regarding these "net bowlers" going to England to help the main team? For BCCI they include Deepak Chahar and Navdeep Saini, both of whom have been reasonably impressive in the IPL thus far and might be able to use English conditions. Are the team allowed to "exchange" one of them for a selected team member (say Bhuvi) if the latter is underperforming or has there got to be a more substantial reason like an injury or "personal issues back home"?

Not under perform but for example: Shami injure >>>than Avesh khan will be most likely to be pick >>> ICC also allow other Nation fo Net bowler but NO FAMILY MEMBER DURING 48 MATCHES WC

besides Deepak C // Saini will go as net bowler.
Avesh better bowler in 50/50.
