Not yet, but will be I think.
Bhogle wrote an article about Gambhir, some interesting points raised.
Ideally I would never want to fiddle with Sehwag-Gambhir partnership but the only reason I opted for Gambhir at 3 is because in the situation in the future of an Indian team without Dravid, Tendulkar and Laxman, I can rely on an excellent batsman like Gambhir to take the responsibility more than an untested M Vijay. I havent seen any of the other players, I dont think much of Yuvraj or Rain at the test level.
However if Vijay proves to be good, I would be happy to send him at 3 and leave Gambhir and Sehwag alone.
While separating Sehwag and Gambhir is indeed not a great idea. I would surely like one of them to come down the order and strengthen the batting once the trinity retire. Three new faces with Yuvi makes me a bit queasy.
Besides, the Indians have still not found a replacement for Kapil Dev and Manoj Prabhakar, or even Anil Kumble (or maybe they threw that replacement aside inexplicably) in this team. But they seem to cope well with that, so why not the trinity? One of those three is already on his way out.

Twenty20 used to be boring.
If Murali has another poor test, how will this performance in IND go down in comparison with Warne's record in IND?
Murali definitely has been the bigger threat in India when compared to Shane Warne.
I feel Murali is regaining form. he has discovered his old dip and flight, and the ball that got Gambhir is a good example of it. He is ripping it a bit more as well. If he gets suitable conditions, for the last time, he may run through Indian batting line up.

I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran
Interesting match ahead. Test match after 36 years at the stadium. Pitch seems to be a pretty good one for a result. No 1 ranking at stake.
Got a bad feeling about Murali. Might come up with something special this match.
