Decent debut...

10-0-46-1 Yadav; never mind that the one wicket came gift wrapped when Cairns had a duh! moment. The most complimentary thing you can say about his bowling is, he is smart enough to bowl within his obvious limitations. Would reckon though that it's a touch too early to rate him -- you need to see how he goes when he doesn't have the luxury of bowling on the back of an incisive opening spell.

  • Agree. He can be a good ODI bowler and useful bat. India should try him for atleast 15 ODIs.

    Same issue, bowlers not able to wrap up the tail. NZ will end up close to 250. India under pressure, batting collapse etc..

  • Hi everyone. Isn't this Yadav's 4th ODI? Quite a gettable target, providing we don't lose early wickets like NZ did.

  • Agarkar has done with his quota of 2 wkts and he will be there for the next 5 matches

  • rajg, are you saying Yadav should be tried for 15 ODI's? That would mean well into 2006. Personally I don't think he merits that kind of attention unless he improves dramatically. I could be wrong, I only saw a couple of his overs today, but his lack of pace and variation is a drawback.

  • Lets not mince words here. Yadav ,for all his industry, is a trundler in the Madan Lal, Mohinder mode. As an effective fifth bowler over a long term, lets just say he is not likely to be confused with Shinola - as our American friends would put it :)

  • Boy..i missed some action. I slept after Nz inn. Back to work....late.....
    JP should be tried because everyone else are failing....if he clicks well and good.
    Ip and JP should be sent earlier in the inn. Drop SG, Rao from side.
