    mine would be the same as yours. I think you have picked the obvious ones. Maybe, with the supersub rule, guys like Dinesh Mongia and Sriram could be considered ahead of this Raina... But that is just maybe.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Fully agree, except-
    • Rajesh Pawar/Amit Mishra for Kumble
    • Ramesh Powar for Irfan Pathan
    • Sriram or Jadeja for Raina
    • Maybe Bhandari or Bangar in place of Balaji

    So far....
    • Off-day for Zaheer. Let's just hope he gets it right in his last over.
    • JP Yadav gets 2/50. No idea what he bowled, but he got out Sehwag and Badani.
    • Nehra had an off-day too, but got 2/49.
    • Venugopal gets 75 (at present) at number seven.
    • Sehwag got 96 off 77, while others got out in single digits.

    Nehra ended up in type then.

    A superb 11 from AA was the key contribution,

    Let's just hope Dravid XI smash their way home. Can't imagine any of those bowlers in the ODI side.

    Just saw JP Yadav LUNGE to the off-side and hit a Pathan wide for four and win the match for Dravid XI. He's more or less 5'10", built square and long-haired. That's all I could see of him. Irfan got Dravid out playing a loose stroke.

    Still, the Indian frontline (more or less) attack got smashed all around by Gambhir (especially), Laxman (especially), Yuvraj, Dravid and Niraj Patel. Poses a few problems for the selectors, but they have Zaheer (actually the best seam bowling option at present- maybe the only good one so far), then Nehra getting two (for a little too much) and Yadav getting two top wickets for not too many. A pity the match was interrupted by rain.

    Rahul Dravid scored 40 in 39, with just 3 fours. Ditto Gautam Gambhir, who was scoring a run off nearly every ball and smashed one six off Irfan, and countless boundaries off Agarkar, on both sides of the wicket. Good running between the wickets, good gap-picks, partnerships built well, the Dravid XI had batted very well, from the power-packed opening partnership between Gambhir and Laxman to JP Yadav's lunge. Can't say much of their bowling, which I could not watch, though the final overs were a problem.

    The Indian team does not need Suresh Raina- he's one batsman too many.

    He is unproven, untested. So you cannot make such a huge statement.

    Pathan got absolutely belted. Not good signs at all.

    7.2 overs, 1 for 58 and the 1 wicket was Dravid, and was the ball before Dravid XI hit the winning runs. Yadav hit a 4 off his first ball to finish.
