    Yeah, sounds awesome, but Cairns and Darwin?

    The Indian A-team will definitely feature young openers Shikhar Dhawan and Robin Uthappa, as well as Raina and Venugopal, as well as Niraj Patel in the middle-order. However, the people in charge have to focus on bowling all-rounders and tearaway pacers, so expect Yusuf Pathan, Joginder Sharma, Munaf Patel, VR Singh and Abid Nabi in the team. And for corn sake, PLEASE don't pick another so-called wicketkeeper-batsman!

    Excellent idea. And is it because of the weather in those places in July/August? I heard that it rains in the traditional centres around that time of the year.

    That's a large part of it, yeah. July/August is mid-winter in Australia, but Cairns and Darwin are both warm and fairly dry around then. The last two off-seasons have had tests about that time in those locations, and they've been successful.

    Perhaps because it is an expensive flight or a 20 hour drive away?

    Right. Keep out all those who've played for India A countless times, such as Bhandari– he's played enough for India A to be considered for the national side– If the selectors don't want him, it's a different matter, but India A doesn't need him.
