Australia won by 4 wickets in the 3rd ODI. Thanks to the inept bowling performance by Ishant Sharma, who’s over went for 30 runs as James Faulkner sent him to the cleaners. Later Mahi criticised all his bowlers stating that they cannot be ‘spoon-fed’. Well, here are few tips that we think Mahi should adopt in the next game:
Drop Ishant Sharma!
After the 1st and the 2nd game, but even the third! What was Mahi thinking when he first selected Ishant Sharma in the 3rd ODI and nonetheless giving him the 48th over. Surely, Ishant has lost his motivation and it’s time, youngster Jaidev Unadkat made his way into the team.
Pick Amit Mishra over R Ashwin
Ravichandran Ashwin has definitely had two contrasting series against the Aussies. While he bamboozled them in the Tests,the Aussies seemed to take him to the cleaners in the ODIs. Clearly, lost touch and Amit Mishra needs a game.
Suresh Raina needs a day off!
No doubt MSD’s plans backfires at times and this is the best example. Keeping 2015 World Cup in mind, Raina was picked as a perfect number four batsman, but in the current situation, he hasn’t been playing as one. Surely, coach Duncan Fletcher and Dhoni need to have a word with him and give him a breather.
Play Yuvraj Singh at number 4!
Comeback man Yuvraj Singh is struggling for runs currently. After his heroics in the T20 game at Rajkot, Yuvi is yet to start going as far as the ODI’s are concerned. Currently occupying the number 5 slot in the middle-order, MSD needs to take a gamble and slot Yuvraj instead of Raina or any other batsman.
