    Heaven help the selectors to figure out which batsman he'll replace.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    How about Yuvraj, That would mean poor Parthiv would be going to the Alter (Open the Innings)

    It does not matter whether he plays or not....every player has to contribute and they should play as a team. All 6 batsmen should score runs. All 4 bowlers should take 20 wickets. All extra runs should be saved and stopped. All catches should be taken. Even the slightest.

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Ticket sales have obviously soured for the Nagpur test, as a result of his return. Hope the game is good so that they dont feel hard done by

    He could fail anyway. Not necessarily on account of match fitness. Sachin has , so far in his career, not been less than very serious about his injuries. He has not been in a great hurry to come back. I will be surprised if he was going to risk an injury at this stage of his carer.

    That said, I have no doubt that the 'short of runs' Laxman and Ganguly would be much more at ease mentally with Sachins name added to the batting card.

    The only thing India can do wrong now is to make a mistake as to who will open.

    If they have any sense, they will open with Chopra and drop both Yuvraj and Kaif (bad luck for Kaif). The second best would be to open with Parthiv and drop only Yuvraj.

    It would be a disaster to open with Yuvraj and have him give catching practice to first slip and Sehwag fall to the law of averages

    It will undo all the advantage India might be anticipating with Sachin's return.

    Agreed 100%, although I just dont like the idea of Patel opening.
