and if there is a bowler who doesn`t bowl that well but is a good fielder and if there is Munaf then I will go with Munaf, who I saw take some good catches in the IPL. For a bowler to be considered over Munaf he has to be in that league. Zak and Ishant should be rested so what other options do we have apart from the ones that i listed
on Gambhir, he is one of the better openers India has had and I don`t want to waste him in a not so important series like the ODIs in the WI. It would be better for him, if he took a break, analyzed his game, worked on it and came back stronger, along with taking a much needed rest. he has been like a workhorse in the past few months
on YP, I don`t think he is good enough to bowl 10 overs effectively on a consistent basis. He would need someone to help him out with a few overs. He is better off playing as a batsman who can send down a few useful overs on a regular basis
