Naming XI is no 'rocket science'.........it wud be what everyone would expect it to be:

Sehwag, Gambhir, Dravid, Sachin, Laxman, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Zaheer, Harbhajan, Mishra, Ishant

.......atleast for the first test.

Badri, Munaf, Vijay and Ojha.......just passengers doing 'drinks and towel' duty unless a few fail miserably in the first test.

Absolutely ! Irfan vs Munaf we should go for munaf. He is a far better bowler who did well last time the english toured india.

Ojha- is he suitable for the longer version?

Has Ojha been tried?

Well Yuvraj has been tried for the 'longer' version and he has failed. But he is in XV and might also be in XI (courtsey Dhoni) based only on 'shorter' version.

What a logic.............!!!

Now we enter into an unknown zone. We have always learned to see Kumble and Harbhajan and now we enter into a zone which is new for indian spinners. Good, harbhajan can add loads of experience and groom the upcoming spinners. Well somebody has to take the backup spinners slot. If its ojha, he has got because of his good performances. Lets wish he capitalizes on this opportunity.

But the irony is Ojha would have to be in the XI to capitalise.......Will Dhoni look beyond 'Amit Mishra' after his (Mishra's) exploits against the Aussies........?

Hopefully......NO.......so Ojha might end the series with 'drinks and towel'.

My question is, will Ojha be given a chance against Amith?

This is a battle between Yuvraj, Badrinath and Vijay for the no.6 slot int he batting order.

Yuvraj is obviously the front-runner but the guy's form in Tests is so poor that I'd start with Vijay - considering his performance at Nagpur against the Aussies.

Between Yuvi and Vijay........obviously Yuvi would make the cut.......courtsey Dhoni....

If somebody has to play , somebody has to sit out. Unfortunately cricket can only be played with 11 players on each side and there will be 4 reserves who can be called up when needed. Amit has used his chance well and he is the tried and tested man. He has to go before Ojha. If amit performs well continuosly, i am afraid its drinks and towels for ojha. But i am sure ojha's time will come and he shud take that opportunity with both hands. See establishing yourself is the key in Indian Cricket and taking up opportunities is the best chance you have. It is a tremendously competitive environment and there is no other alternative. If you establish yourself then dropping you will not be easy !

Anyway, it is difficult for them to make it to the playing XI, whether it is Raina, Badri or Vijay...
