Not recommended.. Its the form and momentum thats hugely important in tournaments like these. and especially considering that we are moving into the playoffs stages.
Gayle has the form. So it would be a mistake to even think of disturbing that. We all know hes mercurial, If he’s off he is off and if on , he on big time like he is now.
Yes we are dependent on him but if he gets out I am sure AB has enough class to take us through. AB is the most under rated high caliber batsman in world cricket and is clearly in the league of pontings and tendulkars as far as technique goes, though doesnt have the achievements to match them.
And please.. Lets get Saurabh Tiwary to play some overs. Infact I would want to see Saurabh at 3 cos we know Virat is excptional talent and can be a floater.
