curious case of BossDK...

by straight point

never has there been a player in one’s memory who simply walks into a team like BossDK irrespective of his scores and performances...

yours truly used to be a strong backer of his but that is changing of late...

but is it easy being BossDK...?

to his credit he never appears out of form... he is the sort of player who is like 'quick-fix' that can be summoned at the 11th hour and still he will do what he is supposed to do... the difference of time-zone does not seem to matter to him neither does jet-leg... and as a bonus... he ranks right there as far as fielding of his preferred peers concerned...

never has there been a player also has been shunted up and down like him... he is made to do what team management wants him to do... if the opener is injured he is our opener... if the middle order bat is injured he is our middle order bat... even there, there is no fix no. given to him... the only thing remaining is to have him bat down the order alongside zaks and nehras and ask him to bowl when a bowler gets injured...

selectors and team management know his worth and that is why he has always been that 16th member of squad and I bet even before first 15... his visa is made and cleared in advance... this is why we never see him entangled in visa issues as certain yadav discovered to his horror recently...

yet, as i said he never appears out of form and yet due to all his 'quick fix' worthiness his name is never written in final xi team sheet... if all players are fit that is...

its partly to do with when he is given the chance to feature in final xi unchallenged... like in zim tour... he blows it as quickly as he ‘fixes’... he has this penchant of playing good cameos and then as if somebody reminds him that he will always be a ‘replacement’ throws it away in favor of his established colleagues... as if he is happy to remain as a ‘quick fix’... as if it is part of a deal...

time has come that either he is given more responsibility, as india has been investing in him for a time now, in the form of regular place in final xi in middle order coz that is what he is, a middle order bat, and assessed at least for a full series or we move beyond him and explore more talents...

but the question is do we have another talent who offers as ‘quick-fix’ a solution as BossDK...?

I saw him bat on 39, not surprised he went on 40, but what a tame dismissal, clearly BossDk is losing his touch - did he play a reverse sweep?
