      wow..India Asia cup champions again..!

      Truly only team in this squad who deserved the cup..baakkiyokke orumathiri school pillere poleyaa kalichathu....

      Kohli in great touch, Rohit was on and off in this series...Dhawan was lucky early in his innings...

      Yuvi and Raina seems to be in touch....top order ithrakku strong aayittu vere teams undo..doubt aanu...

      Dhoni annan started connecting well again....hopefully will do again during World T20...

      Honestly I prefer a lucky not so technically great player to technically good but unlucky player. Ultimately it is runs that count. Dhawan gets those - Rahane doesn't.

      The most frustrating thing about Rahane is how he squanders such opportunities.

      Also SS Iyer of Mumbai is coming up fast, hope the selectors pick him sooner than later.

      Rahane doesn't score runs and you prefer dhawan ahead of him? seriously? Rahane was our go to man in critical situations in last year and half. then dhoni was skeptical about rahane in odis and it didnt took him much time to show the skipper how important he is to the current odi team. now coming to t20s rahane was consistent in last 2 ipls and if given the right opportunity he can deliver for current Indian T20 side.

      Okay, we need to break this into format wise analysis, and analyse last two years performances

      Tests
      Dhawan has averaged around 37 as an opener in tests. Not a great number, but not really something that can be used to drop him either. And given mostly we were touring, that number isn't really torrid.

      Rahane on the other hand averages 45 odd. Which is excellent given the circumstances. But at no.3 he averages only 35, and is exceptional in the middle order, where he has made most of his runs.

      So my thoughts? Dhawan to open, Rahane to be automatic pick for middle order.

      ODIs

      Dhawan has been one of the best ODI openers in the world in the last 2 years, averaging over 46. Rahane's numbers are bad either opening but those are not really at Dhawan's level.

      Thoughts? At present, hard to dislodge Dhawan-Rohit partnership. Kohli is now no.3. Rahane should continue fortifying our middle order which looks a tad iffy after Raina's poor run of late and Yuvi not there anymore.

      T20s
      Dhawan is going through a bit of a tough phase but with his power hitting, a special innings like the one against Ban in the final is just around the corner. And besides why change a winning combination? Middle order is already configured with Yuvi back in reasonable form and Raina being a natural T20ist. Moreover, frankly, Rahane's game is not suited to the T20 format given he takes a lot of time to settle in and worse, lacks the power hitting game to make up for it. He averages a mere 16 anyways and other than being a stop gap doesn't deserve to be in the starting XI.

      Overall thoughts?

      Dhawan is a shoo-in in every format India plays at the moment. Rahane should look at becoming sorts of next Laxman by making the middle order spot his own (no.6). I am still skeptical about ODIs though Rahane hasn't done much to hurt his chances in that either. But no Rahane in T20s please.

      I want SS iyer to come and occupy no.3 in all formats and give the openers a bit of healthy competition and also let Kohli set into Tendulkar position.

      Biggest problem with Dhawan is his inconsistency. his averages might say a different story. reason why many select rahane ahead of dhawan the time and place in which he score runs. he is more of crisis management guy. where as dhawan would have scored most of his runs in good batting wickets and when we were in a comfortable position (its not his fault that he is an opener).

      now coming to rahane and dhawan as openers in T20s. Rahane's stats in IPL stands out compared to dhawan. only arguement imo against rahane instead of dhawan is experience in indian t20 side and its better not to change the winning combination.

      btw iyer is a good prospect and whatever i have seen of him are impressive to say the least

      1. I don't believe in this concept of "batting in good wickets" thing. Being an opener is one of the most toughest things in cricket. In fact, Dhawan's test average in last 2 years is worse in India as against overseas (25 vs 41).

      I don't understand what you mean to say that Dhawan "scored most of his runs when we were in a comfortable position" because being an opener he walks in first, so there isn't really anything called as "comfortable" position!

      2. I don't deny that IPL is a reasonable indicator of a player's potential in International T20 cricket, but it cannot have precedence over actual T20 International performances. Dhawan is head and shoulders above Rahane in T20I in every manner so there is not much of a comparison anyways.
