    Your India and Pakistan team for comming all important test series?

    Who would you like to Play for their respective team in the comming Indo-Pak test series?

    I would personally like to see following players in the teams.

    INDIA

    Sehwag
    Gambhir
    dravid
    Tendulkar
    ganguly
    laxman
    karthik
    pathan
    khan
    Kumble
    Harb


    Pakistan

    Butt
    umar
    Younis
    inzi
    youhanna
    kamal
    Moin
    Akhter
    shabbir
    Arshad khan
    Danish

    Gul is still injured and hence can't be considered, Sami will be in playing 11 though he shouldn't be the part of a test squad coz the guy is a disgrace really.

    Saqlain is past his best and on top isn't fit to play so its better to overlook him. I picked Arshad Khan ( a mediocre off-spinner) as there is no other good spinner in Pakistan right now.

    In case india want to go in with 3 spinner then i believe Zaheer should be shown the door as Irfan Pathan is too great a pacer to be left out.

    Yuvraj can also open for India, however Gambhir has done a good job so far and should get the nod.

    Never! He should stick to running singles and hitting big shots in the middle order. That's best for him.

    Kaneria and Malik are better, and Mushtaq Ahmed is not yet out of action.

    Given how the third spinner has performed, Sehwag should perform that role. He can't do worse than no-ball Karthik.

    We do have Mansoor Amjad the leggie and Tariq Mahmood the Murali clone.

    I suspect Mansoor Amjad will be picked sooner or later.

    Depends on your definition of great.

    Mali is NOT A SPECIALIST spinner and on top his action is under scrutiny.Arshad is certainly a better option.

    Mushtaq will never again get a call, a Pakistani team with two leggies ...IMPOSSIBLE

    Danish? Just took 8 wickets in a match so he is no good?
    He's good and therefore is in my team, when i was saying there isn't a good spinner i meant that the team lack a good OFF-Spinner.

    You can forget Tariq as he's a pure chucker.

    As for Amjad, he will have to do something special to replace Kaneria.i don't think Pakistan will go into a match with two leggies.

    Kiran More and company have to think twice before recalling the little thin man as a strike bowler- that will definitely backfire. Career average of 44. That's excess dry weight. They can use that place to play a young fast bowler who's in good form- maybe Gagandeep or RP Singh.

    He's still better than specialist spinners who are very ordinary.

    Well i guess then i'm wrong. I never liked Ashad khan and never rated him, but have you guys actually seen him ? (since you all prefers a bits and pieces player like malik for bowling option over Arshad)

    There is no one who can get the nod over Kaneria in tests if you consider sheer quality. Malik is goo for the one dayers. Whatever I have seen of Arshad Khan 2-3 years ago has been utter crap.
