    No, but I guess six 5 wicket and one 10 wicket bag in 13 matches against Australia does....

    I'd say that had a fair bit to do with it, with the selectors maybe viewing taking an underprepared Tendulkar, and Flintoff - who on batting alone doesn't deserve to be in the World XI - as opening themselves up a bit with the batting if Australia are on song with the ball.

    However unlikely that seems looking at the current series

    His strength is shown when he plays the Aussies, and that is what should be required in the upcoming series.

    I think you'll find that with good bowlers around him, Vettori could actually turn out to be a star performer in this series.

    Still, there must be a few that are annoyed a couple of Indian players didn't get the nod over Vettori.

    I am pretty sure I would take Kumble over Vettori any day of the week as a spinner, under any conditions, against any opposition.

    How about nine 5-fers, two RECENT 10-fers and four 4-fers at home and away against Australia in only one more Test?

    Lets face it, if success against Australia on australian pitches were a criteria then Michael Vaughan would be a shoe-in.

    Thierry you obviously haven't seen Daniel Vettori bowl against Australia. During the series in New Zealand he was literally the only Kiwi bowler to gain any sort of respect from the Australians - he conceeding around 30 runs per ten overs and also picked up a number of wickets. His recent form against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe (the only other teams he has faced for months) was superb. His batting has come along brilliantly and with that extra batting down the order I think his selection was justified.

    Then why arent Vaughan and Laxman and Kumble in the team if performance against Australia matters so much ?
