    I would have thought it would be the best stroke player after Tendulkar.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Earlier Laxman used to play a lot of strokes. Now a days he slowed down to gain consistency.

    Where are these "fast" bowlers? First of all, we don't have genuinely quick bowlers, they are all medium pacers. Secondly, other than the ones I mentioned, who else is there who merits national selection? You don't take a raw, inexperienced youngster to the WC and hope for a miracle(We have had only one miracle in the pace department in our cricket history and that was Kapil Dev). You should make do with what you have and this unfortunately is what we have.

    I can see this horribly heading off into Balaji-land. Please prove me wrong...

    Why keep to Rayudu? The topic is about the Indian squad to the WC, isn't it? So, even if it goes into Balaji-land(I can only assure you that I won't be the one to take you there), it is still relevant.

    It's just that I'm getting recurring visions of pointless re-statement of points

    I fully agree with you about the quick bowlers anyway

    If we're discussing the Indian World Cup squad, surely we shouldn't talk about either of them?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    By fast bowlers i wasn't suggesting genuine quicks, no need to get into that detail!

    An inexperiance pacer or even a bastmen can prove to be costly thats why i would select Ajit Agarkar as the 4th pacer! But suppose Ajit or Nehra get injured and can't be slected then India will have no choice BUT to select a raw pacer.As i have pointed out earlier, both Zaheer and Srinath are injury prone, suppose they break down in WC then what? Do you suggest that Kumble should open the bowling then? Just avoiding selecting a pacer is not a wise move and will only disbalance the squad!

    I think that's a bit harsh... no-one has got no chance, it's ODI cricket after all, but not much is more accurate
