    Great win for the Windies. India shot themselves in the foot while batting. Windies bowled and fielded brilliantly in the last 20 overs but even then India should have managed much more than 240, at least around 260-270. The last game, I felt, was more of Windies winning than India losing. This one, I think, was lost by India more than won by the Windies. When u win the toss and bat first on a good track like that, u gotta do better than this. Rao and Kaif in the same team is ridiculous to say the least.

    Ramesh Powar and Suresh Raina have been picked for the Test series in West Indies after their impressive performances in one-day internationals. VRV Singh, the Punjab fast bowler, and Dinesh Karthik, the Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper, have also been included in the squad.

    India opted to go for the third spinner in Powar and left out Ajit Agarkar and RP Singh. Robin Uthappa was also omitted as the selectors decided against the reserve opener for Virender Sehwag and Wasim Jaffer, who passed a fitness Test on Tuesday. Kiran More, the chairman of selectors, said that they had Mahendra Singh Dhoni to fill the opener's slot if needed.

    That's it. As if there was any doubt, the Indian selectors have officially gone bat-**** insane. MS Dhoni as an opener. That'll be fun (for the Windies).

    I disagree. In my humble oponion all the top 8 are at par with each other.

    LOL @ Dhoni opening the batting if an injury occurs to Sehwag or Jaffer. Its obvious Dravid would do it.

    You don't open a keeper in tests anyway. I know Sanga plays first drop but even that has been crticised previously.

    Welcome to the world of Indian Cricket. Where hard learned lessons are forgotten during selection meetings.

    I was merely warning the members that although we know that, the selectors are still most incorrect in their assumptions.

    His selection would also have provided a back-up opening batsman...

    I think Dhoni up the order could work. I remember the few times when he has come up the order he has scored big so maybe India could use him up the order.

    Not in tests. Don't even think about that. Plus Sehwag + Dhoni wouldn't match well. You'd be 100-0 after ten overs, or 5-2 after three.

    Kiran More and his team of selectors have gone Crazy. How else can one explain AA's exclusion and their plans to promote Dhoni as opener.

    Dravid/Chappell should give a rest to their constant shuffling of batting orders and focus on building a robust batting order where everyone knows his role.
