    Who will be Sehwag's temporary opening partner?

    With Sachin out and Ganguly most probably out for now, Team India will need a new player to step into the opener's role. Who will it be?

    I assume this is for ODIs.

    I think Yuvraj is the most likely candidate.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Yes, it is for ODIs. Some things I would like to see in this series:
    -Yuvraj and Kaif need to prove their mettle with the bat, but they are very important to the team because of the athleticism and energy they bring to the field.
    -Keep a 3/4/5 spot reserved for Kaif, another for Dravid and another for Laxman, because those three are essential cogs in the side and aren't as valuable at other positions.
    -This means Dhoni will have to shift back down to the 6/7 spot. If Yuvraj is sent to open, India can bring in an all-rounder like JP Yadav at the #7 spot. If Gambhir, Jadhav or someone else is sent to open, Yuvraj can remain at the 6/7 spot.
    -Our only secondary bowling options now are Yuvraj and Sehwag, and they cannot be depended on to bowl 10 overs between them on a consistent basis. Thus, an all-rounder like Yadav becomes more important.
    Sehwag, Yuvraj, Dravid, Laxman, Kaif, Dhoni, Yadav, Pathan, Harbhajan, Zaheer, Nehra
    how's that??

    I wouldn't be in the least surprised to see them opt for Dhoni, in the expectation of an Afridi-esque effort. He's the new Gilchrist, remember?

    I have a feeling it'll be Dhoni, although I wouldn't be surprised to see Gambhir get another shot.

    I think they will go for Dhoni but think Raina or some other agressive option should be tried.

    They should and I think they will opt for Dhoni...
    Though after Ganguly's ban is over, I guess he will open

    I'd go with the erstwhile Flying Scotsman (Rahul McDravid) - but throw His Royal Lefthandedness Ganguly straight back in as soon as his stinging slapped wrists allow.

    Which nobody knows when it will be, because the Indian board refuse to accept the rules.

    I doubt Dhoni will become Sehwag's partner. Yuvraj Singh has the highest chance out of them all to open.

    I would think it should be Gambhir.
