    India have named their squad, and four players are out with injury - Tendulkar, Sehwag, Zaheer and Raina. Munaf and Irfan have been dropped....

    Ravindra Jadeja, and Nayar are overrated limited overs cricketers, imo. Good to see Nehra and Karthik rewarded for strong IPL stints (Karthik found good form and Nehra was tremendously impressive) and Badri kept on the scene, though would prefer to see him in Test colours. Just remembered, where is Virat Kohli, he surely > Nayar and Jadeja.

    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    I don't mind Nayyar there at all.. He has the same weakness as Raina or Rohit against the short balls but he is a decent hitter and can chip away with nudges when he cannot get the big onside slog going... He is a decent bowler and fielder too for this format...



    Jadeja.. meh, better that he is in the in the ODI side than in the T20 side is all I can say.

    There are comments on the selection having a South Zone bias. I don't subscribe to that at all, it's just the Chairman of Selectors and the team manager who are from TN as well as three players. The inclusion of Vijay Krishnan has raised eyebrows and hence this tag, but it's better deserved than, say, Parthiv Patel.

    Ravindra Jadeja is a waste. He can't hit the ball long enough, and gets stifled by tight field settings. His bowling isn't far better than the part-timers, and only got away with bowling on the same slow wickets on which strokeplay wasn't easy. Maybe he has a chance in the Test team, but there's a far better player already in this team. Maybe more, but they can't afford to play as all-rounders as they're batting mainstays.

    Nayar was drafted solely as a replacement for Irfan Pathan. The selectors have taken a conscious step to penalise Irfan in particular for non-performance (then what about Ishant, Raina, Pragyan, Jadeja and Rohit?) but have thankfully gone in for a replacement. It wouldn't be a bad idea to have him playing as a bowler; his batting ability was never in doubt, but he would need to bowl long stocks regularly, not just bits and pieces. Both he and Yusuf will be crucial as all-rounders. That said, Praveen Kumar has been under-utilised as a batsman ever since he made his India debut; he can come in as a lower-order striker to send in with few overs to play.

    This is an exhibition tournament, not a World Cup match. The Indians can experiment; their best team still has a few holes to plug, and they'll get their hints from here.

    This is just India returning a favour for the four ODIs the WIndies played in India prior to the 50-overs World Cup....

    Does seem pointless, but tickets are selling fast, I understand. So, can't argue with that.
