Opinion: The selectors are experimenting with these five Indian players in the limited-overs format
Team India has been in sensational form of late and has been winning most of their matches across all 3 formats of the game. They have been non-stop playing cricket for a long period of time and that is the reason why the selectors have been experimenting with new guys in order to help other players maintain their shape and balance for a longer period of time. In the recent past, the Indian selectors have gone with many new faces or have brought back the players who have been performing well in the domestic circuit.
India now has a large pool of players to choose from and it is quite evident from the fact that premier spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja are not getting their opportunities in the limited overs format as two young guns Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have performed exceptionally in their absence. Kuldeep lost his place against New Zealand in favour of Axar Patel who has the ability to restrict the batsmen with his tight bowling.
Let us now have a look at 5 such players who have been tried by the Indian selectors on an experimental basis.
The stylish middle-order batsmen have abundance of talent but the stroke maker has failed to realise his talent on a consistent basis. He played a match-winning knock during the ODI series against Australia early in 2016 and helped India chase down a mammoth total. With the promise he showed in Australia, many cited him to be the perfect middle order batsmen India was looking for.
Despite his inconsistency, Pandey has an impressive ODI record. In 19 matches so far Pandey has amassed 430 runs at an impressive average of 43 with his highest score of 104* coming against Australia. He hasn’t been a permanent member of the team but still has a long way to go. He will look to get some runs under his belt if he does get the opportunity to play in the ODI series against Sri Lanka.
