    Well i disagree with Yohannan. He doesn't deserve the cap. He best is 6-117 and avges around 40 in 1class games. He didn't perform well in tour games also. Rakesh Patel and Pathan should get the chance.

    Agarkar and nehra have had their chances, they have proved nothing special and are not front line bowlers who can get wickets regulalry. India should have been experimenting with players long ago, now any substitution wil do ! because they replace agarkar and nehra.
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box

    He really doesn't seem that impressive...definately not a savior who's gonna carry your attack for years to come...he might be useful but I doubt he could become a Srinath...

    And may i ask you as 2 where were you able to watch him in action? have you seen the Indian domestic matches, because Balaji haven't played a single Test/oneday match till date.

    Mark my word, Balaji is here to stay and will reach glorious height

    I have my ways anyway Pathan looked good...but he will reach glorious heights? Like Khan? Who's only just reaching some sort of consistancy? Or Nehra who got his test average under 29 for a bit before it was blasted up to 39...or Yohannan who played 2 Tests and has since struggled in FC cricket...?

    What has Balji/Pathan 2 do with the other pacers??? Before Srinath India didn't had a genuine fast bowler, it didn't stop him from reaching the top!

    Just because Nehra/Ajit has struggled doesn't mean that Balaji and Pathan will also struggle, the later bowlers aren't a cloned verson of Ajit and Nehra so its not sensable to write them off

    I still think Nehra should be in the team. He had only 3 bad matches. He had 5 or 6 good series before that. Why is every body saying that he is no good :O. He had a very good eco. espially with the new ball before this series.

    Nehra and Ajit will be in the 15 man squad for the WC but they won't be in the first choice 11 for the matches!

    If Ajit doesn't perform with the ball, he does it with the bat, thats why he's a vital member of Indian oneday team.

    Just a nit..... Srinath cannot be called Nath.That's neither his last name nor his nickname.

    He is Javagal Srinath !!

    Are you talking about Harvinder Singh ? That guy sucks so bad that I haven't seen a worse bowler.He played some ODIs in 1997-98 or so against Pak in Toronto alongwith Debashsis Mohanty.While Mohanty was almost unplayable in the swing friendly conditions in Toronto, Harvinder was spraying all over with no semblance of any line or length.Bad balls of all types....you name it and he had it.

    Oooooooookay...we've had a Yohannan lover which I thought was a bit bizzar to say the least...but an Agarkar lover????:O This is a guy who looks like he's about to thump the batsman as soon as he gets hit for 4...which is getting more and more common now...
