Manish Pandey is playing on my mind.

by Naked Cricket

Why wasn’t he playing for Bangalore today? Who makes these calls – good if it was Mallaya Jr. and not Kumble Sr.

Not that there’s an unwritten code that Pandey should play every game, but why would you not play him? It took us a while to realise Pandey wasn’t playing. What, no Pandey, said I. What??! No Pandey said another.

Bangalore wanted to get all their flashy firangs in, that picked KP, Taylor, White, Kallis + two more middle order desi hitters - Kohli, Uthappa + Bachao!-Dravid.

That’s seven batsmen, and no place for Pandey – and to hell with his first Indian IPL 100, have a look at his scores in the D trophies.

But then you look at BRC in their first year with Jaffer and Joshi, and you realise they’ve come a long way, baby.

Look at KKR too, they pick Che Pujara almost every second game, that’s great for the future of Indian cricket. Long as the past of Indian cricket plays all the time, why should we complain?

SP, if they had to play RD, then play him in between the hitters - not after the game is lost. These were ideal desi conditions for RD, he couldn't have done much worse than KP. Oh right, KP was MoM last game, to hell with the conditions.
