Parthiv Patel should be given a run as India's back-up keeper

“ Parthiv fits the role perfectly ”
“ India has better alternatives ”
Monish Moorthy: Parthiv Patel's height belies the big responsibilities he can carry. He is not the flashiest batsman or devastating but is among the few you'll see comfortably attacking short pitched pace. And not much is out if reach for Parthiv with the gloves on behind the stumps.

Dhoni's reserves Saha and Dinesh Karthik haven't had too many chances either. Saha's time spent away from the domestic cricket on drinks duty with the national team is detrimental to his game. Karthik has made it to the team twice this season already, giving a middling performance as a specialist bat in the Champions Trophy and failing as a back up keeper in the Asia Cup. He once again failed to convert his domestic and IPL form into a long run with Team India and his missed stumpings cost India a group stage exit from the Asia Cup.

Parthiv is a lot more decisive in his stroke making, has the experience to bat anywhere in the order and has even opened the batting in limited overs games at a surprisingly good clip. The slot in the middle order could yet be his and he certainly deserves the chance to claim it.
Vidula Menge: Having played just 20 Tests and 38 ODIs, Parthiv Patel's performances for India have been strictly average. In comparison, Dinesh Karthik has been fairly impressive in terms of batting as well as wicket-keeping.

India's current back-up keeper, Wriddhiman Saha has hardly played any international cricket and pushing him up the ladder with MS Dhoni still around might be another option. Though, as far as experience is concerned, Karthik stands out purely on the basis of his strong records.

Since all three are almost in the same age category, the choice is now between giving exposure to the inexperienced Saha and going with the seasoned Karthik.

he don't worth to be there...
03 Apr 2014
i dont think parthip fits for this time
03 Apr 2014
I think Parthiv has been given fair enough chances..His wicket keeping ability is not up to international standard though he is handy bat..Same for Dinesh Karthik. As long as Dhoni is playing i don't think Parthiv has any chance at all..
02 Apr 2014
could be

dinesh kartik would be the better choice as a back-up wicketkeeper for indian team
31 Mar 2014
yah absolutely right
27 Mar 2014
India can also play with Dinesh Karthik. He also has a more good record as compared to Parthiv Patel as a batsman and also as a wicket keeper!
27 Mar 2014
DK
26 Mar 2014
Robin deserves the most.
26 Mar 2014
No
26 Mar 2014
There are better options than Parthiv. I would rather prefer Dinesh Karthik over Parthiv due to the latter's batting prowess. Parthiv, on many occasions, has failed to build innings when an early wicket falls. This is something that Karthik can do.
26 Mar 2014
no chance
24 Mar 2014
ther r better options
23 Mar 2014
He s not having enough skill to do that job, that's why selectors should focus on some youngsters.
23 Mar 2014
Sanju Samson is Better than Parthiv patel, DK, and Other.... Give this Youngster a Chance
22 Mar 2014
his performance in ipl is also below average and raydu is better keeper than him, in comparison DK is better than him...
22 Mar 2014
We have players that are better than parthiv.examples include Dinesh Kartik,Manvinder Bisla,etc.
