Supersub?

Early -- very early -- days yet, but if this is how this deck is going to behave -- average bounce with the new ball, which could mean lower as the ball softens -- what say India looks to bring in its supersub in place of JP Yadav? On this deck, Murali's bowling would suit better than JP's... the downside being, JP was the only one, last time around, who showed some sense and some application with the bat (and Pathan, of course). Bit of a dilemma, that -- wouldn't have been as much of a one if the main batsmen were in anything like good form.

  • I think they would wait for about 20-25 overs until Bajji bowls to see if its worth getting Murali on...and may be if someone like Agarkar is having a bad day (quite probable) then you could replace him too.

  • Bowling looks flat, Kiwis look determined.

  • Get that third slip in, wouldja Ganguly?

  • I think they can get Agarkar and Nehra to complete their spell and then get in the supersub in their place. JPY is too much of a risk now ;)

  • i think they got the supersub completely wrong. in the first place, mk should never have been the supersup. if this was the 12 they wanted to go with, they should have played jp yadav as the supersub and karthik in the team. if we batted first, and the top order failed to do what it's supposed to do, bring jp yadav in, in place of karthik. now our supersub is virtually useless.
    what they should have done, imho, is played raina as the supersub with the same first 11.

  • why is it a waste.. we can still sub mk for nehra.. mk is a decent bat and goign by the thigns if the match went to the last few wkts for us (as it is always teh case), mk come in handy
