Here is my team for the semi’s (Vs CSK):
If we batting first, then
3.Pondey (In case if we don’t loose the openers early(after 10th over), then Akhil has 2 come in place of Pondey)
4.Taylor (If we loose 2 wickets early then Taylor should be replaced by Kohli)
6.White (Keep whity in 6th or 7th place, he is not a gud hitter for spinners….let the CSK fast bowler come)
3.White (If we loose any one openers early then Kohli and White have to exchange their positions followed by Akhil & den Taylor)
One more good option is replace Pondey with Du Preeze, so that we have a enough strength on the bowling side as well.
But then Uthappa has to open with Dravid, Preeze has to come in 6th or 7th position.
Tips for (You all guys are grt, but here and der I found few things… If u r come out of this, u guys will really rock ..
Praveen Kumar : Don’t loose the temperament man… That will have an impact on your bowling…! And also try to give the strike to batsman, in case if he is in other end.
Kumble : Make use of Kohli, Akhil, white has part timers ( U did a gud job using one in last match)
Uthappa : You really need to work hard… Focus on keeping as well…
Dravid : Be careful with the back foot shot man (especially 4 Muruli and Ashwin), You might end up in LBW or Inside Edge bold.
Taylor/ White : You guys have to fire… Focus on batting.
V Mally : Make yourself free, come and encourage the team. We really need you man
For All the Bowlers : Focus on yorkers, that’s one area where we really need to improve. i didn’t even see a single yorker on MI match.
And as always short delivery for Indian batsman’s.
For All the Batsmen : For CSK, spinners are the key. Please focus on who you ppl can handle spinners.. Especially Muruli..!
And finally our Fielding is the Key….Need to work hard ( Especially Praveen & Kumble)...!
