    Would Tatenda Taibu get in the India test team?

    my honest opinion is yes he probably would, he strikes me as being a player who is a better keeper and batsman than eitehr parthiv patel or dinesh karthik.
    please discuss

    Interesting questions. I expect most Indian supporters to say no, but I venture a yes. I rate Taibu as a good little player and if he didn't have to carry the Zimbabwean batting, he'd be better statistically. Excellent wicketkeeper.
    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."

    I'd suggest that Denesh Ramdin is/will be as good/better than he is within a year or so. I'd also say that Jacobs is in tremendous batting form. I wouldn't mind him in there though.

    I think Taibu would comfortably make the Indian Test side, there's the added bonus of his massively underused off-breaks as well.

    Undoutably so. Comfortably a better gloveman than Karthik, Dhoni or Patel, and an accomplished batsman. Heck, I'd pick him in the England Test and ODI sides...

    No I wouldn't want taibu in the indian team. His batting sucks, karthik is better.

    On the other hand, if gilchrist is available...................
