    Indian ODI squad

    India squad: Sourav Ganguly (capt), Rahul Dravid (vice-capt), Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Venkatsai Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Ajit Agarkar, Anil Kumble, Irfan Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Sridharan Sriram, Dinesh Karthik.

    This squad was named for the Jubilee game against Pakistan next week.
    Nehra and Agarkar shouldn't be there -- time to give the likes of Bhandari/Paul/Salvi a chance.
    The inclusion of Laxman and Yuvraj is also questionable as is Kumble whose time in ODI cricket IMO is over. The Dravid as keeper experiment must also stop.

    I think India need to be more innovative with their ODI setup/strategies.
    The seven batsman 4 bowler tactic is just not workable now.
    A squad like the followng would be much better:
    1) Ganguly
    2) Tendulkar
    3) Kaif
    4) Dravid
    5) Sehwag
    6) Powar/Joginder
    7) Dinesh Karthik
    8) Pathan
    9) Zaheer
    10) Harbhajan
    11) Salvi

    12) Murali Karthik

    Your'e taking a calculated gamble on the likes of Joginder,Powar, Karthik (wk) -- but I think its well worth the risk. Some imagination and flexibility is the required now.

    sridharan sriram gets a chance but i think he should be used in tests if they want him playing for the national side, did they name 15 players for one match ?

    yeah, that is a bit too much. I think Sriram could be tried as a test opener if Gambhir fails to use his chances against RSA. But I rate him as an ODI player too. He bats like Chanderpaul and Kirsten. You hardly notice him and he would have 30 or 40 on the board without using up too many deliveries.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Does sriram open for TN ? I thought he doesn't open any more.
    If he does, he should be in the Indian team as one of the test openers.

    Good to see Sririam getting a go (hopefully!) in the squad.

    IMO Sriram has a chance to play only if Ganguly fails to pass fit... I'm quite sure Dravid will relieve the glove work, and hand it over to Karthik.

    Dravid doesn't like keeping. I remember reading that somewhere or hearing it from some commentator.

    Even better to see the retention of the great AA.

    He used to open in the early days, but nowadays bats at 3. Still won't be a bad idea to ask him to open. He is technically reasonably sound and has a good temperament.

    Why are they having this silly match and the SA tour opener at the SAME time?

    Twenty20 used to be boring.

    From a tour opener? Maye they could have both matches on different days, so that younger and less established players can get a fair try.

    6) Powar/Joginder
    If you're talking of that Haryana bowler, he must get that bowling average higher up to get into the Indian A-team, and keep that average high to make the senior team, as well as consistently take wickets.
