Well, well, well, had to bid adieu to Bhajji, but look whom did I find instead.
Like Malinga, I am curiously wondering that why wasn't he picked until now.

There’s no better feeling than stealing someone’s pick! :p

I wasn't looking to get him in at all costs to be fair. :p He was my pre-T20 rotation option for the finger spinner role.[DOUBLEPOST=1604409886][/DOUBLEPOST]
:ar: Sunil Narine


Guess my post was a dead giveaway that he was still up for grabs. :p Outstanding pick too!

Brash, brutal and brilliant to watch, Brendon McCullum can bruise bowling attacks like few other men in international cricket. A wicketkeeper-batsman, McCullum has been used throughout the New Zealand batting order, but whenever he arrives at the crease it's impossible to look away. He muscles balls over both sides of the field and was responsible for getting the IPL off to an electrifying start, lighting up the tournament's first match with 158 and showing what the format had to offer. And he reprised that style in Tests too - striking the fastest century in the format's history in his final match. (from espncricinfo).

IPL wouldn't have been the IPL we see today if not for that magical innings in the first ever IPL match[DOUBLEPOST=1604423462][/DOUBLEPOST]
That batting order really needs some promotions. :spy
Well I don't think 4 5 6 7 are fixed position in a t20

All of them are floaters depending upon the match situations and the overs left.

:ind: :bat: Kris Srikkanth
Never played Twenty20 cricket

ODI stats: 4091 runs @ 29.01 (SR: 71.74, best 123, 4 centuries) in 146 matches
Batting VARP (opener): :up: 4.21%

upload_2020-11-4_21-28-22.png

Kris Srikkanth was India's Twenty20 opener from before Twenty20 was actually invented. Although his career numbers look bang-average, he was unusually explosive for the era in which he played. How explosive? Well, of the ten fastest ODI innings by openers before 1990, five of them belong to Kris Srikkanth: #1 (46 off 27), #2 (95 off 66), #6 (39 off 29), #7 (57 off 43) and #9 (75 off 58) on that list respectively. Although those aren't great innings by Twenty20 standards, one has to assume he'd be capable of bigger, better innings had he come around in the Twenty20 era.

BAPU NADKARNI

I had planned on him being my spinner from the start of this draft. Bapu Nadkarni was the most prolific run stopper in the history of test cricket, as he boasted an economy rate of 1.67 runs per over from 45 test matches, and 1.64 from 191 First Class Matches. Bowling multiple maidens in succession was never a problem for him, as when he played people were used to see figures like 32-24-23-0 (against Pakistan in 1960), followed by 34-24-24-1... And yeah, he holds the record for most consecutive maidens bowled when he bowled 21 successive maidens in his 32-27-5-0 against England at Madras in 1964.

One may think, he played in an era where the batsmen played slow, but a quick statsguru query shows that economy rate for the other bowlers when he played was around 2.20... So that is still a vast difference.

I can hope him to be as economical as hell, during the middle overs.

And yeah, he could bat a bit...


SACHIN TENDULKAR

Most prolific run scorer in the history of cricket... :tick:
Was a good IPL player even though was past his prime... :tick:
Consistent player, with no major weakness... :tick:
Gives my team a massive fan following... :tick: :p

In all honesty, I didn't expect Sachin to be available to me at this point. I was not gonna pick him until I saw this post by Aislabie...

So instead, I'm going with the system of players being judged by whichever is best out of their peak career performances (over a period of three-ish years) or by their peak IPL performance (over a period of three-ish seasons)

Changes the whole scenario for Sachin that.

Everyone knows his peak career performance came during the year of 1998 when he averaged 65, with a strike rate of 102, with 9 centuries and 7 fifties. If that 1996-1998 Sachin played in the IPL, I would just be sorry for the bowlers who would have to face his wrath...

As for his position, the opening batsmen could vary between Rahul, Sehwag and him. For now, he stays at the opening batsman position with Sehwag at three.

Tendulkar was someone I expected to have gone at the round two at most and was very much the person I had in my mind when I asked that query. Still wonder if I could have gone for him. :p Incredible pick along with Nadkarni who was possibly one of the most miserly bowlers in existence.

:ind: :bat: Vinod Kambli
Never played Twenty20 cricket

ODI stats: 2,477 runs @ 32.59 (SR: 71.94, 2 centuries, best 106) in 104 matches

upload_2020-11-5_19-52-7.png

Despite never quite achieving the giddy heights of schoolfriend Sachin Tendulkar, Vinod Kambli still played 121 times for India and finished with a Test batting average of 54.20. He was a capable six-hitter, a huge scorer, and a happy punisher of bad bowling. He will likely come in at either number five or six in my team, as I've not completely settled on what my lower order is going to look like, and what role I'm going to burn my last past Indian player in.

My next pick will be Syed Mushtaq Ali
The Indian domestic T20 competition is named after him for good reason, his aggressive style of play was way ahead of his generation.
He scored India's first overseas hundred and did it in 150 minutes which really shows the skill and his style of play.
