    A former selector said that the board would have definitely stuck to Sourav as captain despite his form. They're left with no choice but to go with Dravid since Ganguly is proven unfit. For the first time, Gangs didn't get so lucky and Indian cricket fans did.

    Preferred playing XI-
    • Sehwag and Gambhir open
    • Dravid, Tendulkar, Yuvraj and Raina in the middle-order
    • If there are more wickets in hand, JP Yadav, Dhoni and Irfan may be promoted at the expense of one of the middle-order.
    • Irfan should open the bowling with Sreesanth
    • Nehra and Yadav come first-change and second-change, then Harbhajan comes in.

    I'm assuming that's only for the ODIs though. He's never been particularly effective in ODIs, so it's hardly surprising. It was pretty clear when the Chappell/Ganguly thing blew up that Chappell considers Laxman a good Test player only.

    What you say seems to make sense. But i would have preferred Vidyut in place of Gambhir for his sheer aggression. But your line-up looks good given the team that has been selected.
    I very much doubt Dhoni's abilities against quality bowling.

    But i would predict the result to be in favour of Srilanka 5-2.

    That is shocking to say the least. What wrong he has done when players like Raina could find a place in the team, why not Laxman. You cant always say youngsters should be preferred over people who are in their thirties.
    Talentwise, Raina comes nowhere near Laxman.

    The team has also been announced. Kaif, Zaheer are going to sit out. The only new face is Sreesanth. Hopefully Dravid should be able to do well. What I am, guess everybody else is waiting most eagerly for is the perfomance of Tendulkar. What do you guys feel, will he be able to recreate the magic?

    I am not sure if Sachin is going to be as good as he was in his prime, but I still think he will be good enough to be a very important player in INdia's scheme of things. And I quite like the side, actually. Perhaps, guys like Uthappa or Vidyut could have been tried ahead of Gambhir, but to be fair to him, he never got the opportunities he deserved in ODIs. So, this might be a good thing for him.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Excellent decision by the BCCI selectors and great for Indian Cricket that Dravid has been made Captain.

    Not so good from SL point of view !!

    I don't care, as long as it's a tournament victory. I don't support Tendulkar. I support India.

    You chose Vidyut, but honestly, he should be played as a spinner rather than as a batsman, to help the team a lot more. That way, you can also make room for a specialist wicketkeeper like Amir Khan or Ajay Ratra. What do you think?

    That said, Dhoni's good enough to play only as a hitter. Even if he doesn't get a century in nearly every innings like Tendulkar, it shouldn't matter as long as there is that attack in the final overs that takes the team to a big score on the back of a big partnership. He can do that far better than the other keepers. His wicketkeeping, however, requires some fine-tuning.
