Yes, forward line looks messy. We have been waiting for long time for Akashdeep, Ramandeep and Uthappa to improve and now are waiting for Mandeep, Talwinder and Satbir also to do the same for last couple of years at least. Will they improve some day like Chinglensana and before him Dharmveer did ? We can only hope.

Yes Sameer, I'm ok with guys that improve like Chinglensana and Dharamvir and before them, Gurvinder Singh Chandi (although injury curtailed the latter's career).

Akashdeep, Mandeep, Uthappa and Ramandeep have been in the squad for 3+ years. In my book if you can't trap on the open side of the stick and make simple 10m passes when under little pressure after such a long 'trial', you need to go away from the national team and improve yourself before being considered for selection. On top of that these guys get dispossessed almost 80% of the time. We simply can not carry so many poor players as we have to contend with awful umpiring.

Affan, Sumit, Gurbaj, Gurinder, Gurjant and Nikkin would have given us a much better chance of success.
