Too many changes to a winning combination

The title sums up the loss.

A winning combination should not be changed. It might be okay to change the rule a bit but  I think we made too many changes all round. Not just the team but the order too.
The most disappointing bit was that one of most successful opening pairs of the tournament was changed!

Would have been better to swap ross with one of kp or white instead of risking so many changes. especially in the blowing line up.

The problem is the next match we have to make amends again, and who even if the old combination works! Insecurity all round!

That said, i think today we lost cause kp and kallis could never get the run rate going. And by the timeout it was already too difficult.

Again, its sad to see Dravid not coming in or coming in at helpless situations.

Well I feel Kallis and peterson gave away the match to Delhi. Man can u believe two of the best in business could manage just 20-25 runs in 5th- 10 th over period.

I feel we cant afford to have dravid, kalli and peterson in a single line up, onehas to go and that I feel is Peterson.
There was no sense in dropping Steyn, praveen.
I feel the batting order should be like this in the next match

dravid(only if wicket falls early)

KP is not serious, full team momentum has changed, need to act fast.......sit out KP

Bring in steyn , van der merwe and eoin morgan in place of kp, kallis and white and also pandey and kumar in place of appana and mithun....
kallis , kp and white were very sluggish in their latest outing and created a lot of pressure on the middle order which was very capable but made to score 13-14 runs per over from the 11th over itself.....AND PLEASE ...send dravid at his position that he's known to play all his life that is no. 3 spot...make utthapa and pandey to open to sieze the initiative in the first 6 overs. give morgan a chance to prove his mettle becuse he is the new surprise mix of brains with aggression in world cricket..

Play Merve he is definetely a match winner

we cannot expect ROSS or Robin to win matches for us every time.. one should understand that how badly KP and Kallis batted and made life hell to Uttappa and Taylor.. ball was not coming on to the bat .. agreed.. but wicket was not that pathetic to score 54 runs in 10 overs.. It shows how pathetic our so called world class batsmen are.. they need to uderstand that T20 is not about anchoring... it is about being aggressive and adapting to situations when required.. hope they would have learned something from yesterday's defeat...

I think Uthappa should have opened.And why is Ross taylor coming at the end.If the runrate is 12 or 13 why is Uthappa going why can't Ross Taylor go so that if he settles he can smash the bowlers and if you give him only two or three overs he will surely get out and do'nt forget that Taylor has now only come from the hard bouncy pitches in New Zealand.And why is Mithun coming in for Pandey.First of all Pandey is a batsman and not a bowler and Mithun is a bowler.So why are you swaping a batsman with a bowler.You could have taken Mithun for Vinay Kumar instead.I still do'nt understand why did'nt Pandey or atleast Steyn did'nt play because both Pandey and Steyn have supporting others and are like rocks in the line up.

Even i voice the same opinion that many others have told..Drop Kallis and make Dravid open the innings along with Pandey..What Kallis can do,Dravid can do it better..we dont want a 42 ball 54 in a 185 run chase..Also drop KP,he is useless in T20..To hell with everything,i wanna see Rahul bat up the order..
vinayjayaram on 05 Apr 2010, 11:12 PM
Foolish to drop Pandey....
But its time to move forward...
Remove KP...... He just does not look like he is a t20 player...
And White has to bat down the order.. we wasted his services by sending him to open just like IPL 1..

It's just hell to make out so many changes for a winning team.Pandey gosh! are you insane Anil Bhai not to play him.What about bowlers,Who was our striker?,They should make KP and White sit next match with mithun,Appanna.Bring in Steyn,Merwe,Kumar and Pandey.its good to have 3 pacers and 2 spinners.Also with merwe Steyn and Kumar we still know that they can Bat too.Think in a realistic way Anil Bhai than to make foolish desicion and pending on luck against The DD

KP should be replaced Coz he cant hit the Big Sixes easily in T20.....Everyone knows this... He is not a kind of Player who can hit 50 off 20 unlike White, Uthappa and Taylor. We have players like Kallis, Dravid, Kohli to do that sort of a job.
This would be the best combination:
9.P Kumar
10.Appanna/Vinay Kumar
