Indian Test team for WI series


MS Dhoni – Captain – Selectors feel he does not need rest.

Gautam Gambhir – Concussion free & injury free he will be crucial.

Virender Sehwag – If he is fit and if he fires and if he can bowl and if if if …..

Rahul Dravid – No comments

Sachin Tendulkar – No comments

VVS Laxman – No comments

Yuvraj Singh – Is he fit? Is he good enough for Test matches? Am personally not convinced

R Ashwin – Very good in T20s and ODIs, 134 wickets in 35 first class matches is not the best record to get a break in tests. Again am not convinced he is test material as yet.

Pragyan Ojha – He should be in the team and playing in test mtaches.

Ishanth Sharma – Is he fit? Will he fire? Another question mark

Umesh Yadav – Glad he got picked. Deserves a few chances

Virat Kohli – He is the future of Indian cricket at the moment. But I will reserve my comments as far as tests go.

Varun Aaron – Raw pace needs to be encouraged. Better pick than Sreesanth

Ajinkya Rahane – Pipping an unlucky Abhinav Mukund. Unfortunately a match winning 91 in a home ODI is considered better than 49 in a losing cause at the Lord’s Test.

Rahul Sharma – 10 first class matches and 18 wickets in 5 years for Punjab!! What is he doing in this team?

Dropping of Bhajji was expected but am not too sure it was the right thing. Praveen Kumar has probably been rested. Raina has finally been found unsuitable for tests which is a good thing. I was half expecting them to pick Jadeja ahead of Ojha, but Cheeka and company felt that the inexperience of Rahul Sharma would serve India better. I think players like T Suman, Bharath Chipli, Paul Valthaty, Mayank Agarwal will definitely feel that an India call is inevitable. BTW why no mention of  Rohit Sharma??  My son looked at the side and said they could have picked Jakati!!

  1. They didn’t pick me :@

  2. I agree with Harbhajan being dropped. I do not understand some other selections. This is a series India can experiment – WI are only marginally better than Bangladesh. So, the more youngsters play – better it is. We can play the big guns at Boxing day !!!

    I think there is a TN quota and Ashwin got in – so others can not get in !! like Abhinav Mukund or Murali Vijay.

  3. your son is right!

  4. I totally agree with your comment. specially Dhoni need rest.
