Mumbai: Former captain and India A team coach Rahul Dravid on Wednesday said there can not be a one-size-fits-all policy on workload management and players are smart enough to know where to draw the line. I don't see him as a shrewd captain or a tactful captain as well.
Going into the last ODI series before the upcoming World Cup - against Australia - India skipperVirat Kohli had said that Indian players' performance in the IPL wouldn't have any bearing with selection in the squad for the showpiece event. Pant could not have asked for better guidance to foster his goal - he is now being overseen by the duo of Rickey Point (team coach) and Sourav Ganguly (team advisor) at the Delhi Capitals as he prepares for the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Former Indian captain SouravGanguly on Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant said, "If you put Rishabh Pant on number 4 he will score runs for you". What he has done with the bat in every format of the game. We have seen the best in the world do that. "I believe in one thing, as a player, when you get an opportunity, play, never say I don't want to play".
Interestingly, both Rahane and Iyer are ready for the challenge and feel that a good show in the IPL will definitely make them contenders for that No.4 spot that has had players coming in and going out without consistent success. How many Indian wicketkeeper-batsmen have got Test hundreds in England and Australia, and he scored them at ease.
Sourav was convinced that the Delhi lad could be an asset for the Indian team in the near future.
Kohli had said that it is up to individual players to deal with the issue to keep their body fit and be in contention for a place in the World Cup-bound squad.
"I'd play him at number four in the Indian team". I don't know why they are questioning, maybe because you need to speak about something before the World Cup.
However, Zaheer Khan, the legendary left-arm pacer, feels it will certainly be a factor to freeze one or two slots still open in India's World Cup squad.
Former Australia player further said: It is very minimal what I am doing around the Australian team.
Even Kings XI Punjab, who had played a few of their home matches in Indore during earlier editions, will play all their matches in Mohali. Getting opportunities at the worldwide level, at the IPL level, this will never come back, so find a way to get rest, find a way to stay fresh and keep playing. "Yes, IPL was not there as it came towards the end of our career, but cricket-wise, it was the same", he added.
"It'll be a good and competitive World Cup because the format is really good".
Stormy weather anticipated for Sunday
The threat of severe weather will likely increase throughout the day, the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center said. The National Weather Service of Fort Worth went on to rate the tornado an EF-3, with 140 miles per hour winds.
