A whole lot of Indian bowlers need to work on their speed, and it often won't work. They don't seem to get it right, as a thirst for extra pace results in lack of accuracy and even overstepping. On the other hand, bowlers with the basic element of accuracy, as well as added skills of ball movement (and extra skills such as old-ball bowling, as also runs and fielding), should be picked, and pace should take care of itself with scientific techniques. They tried to play Sreesanth, Munaf, VRV Singh, Tyagi, Dinda and Yadav as pacers and failed. Somehow, picking bowlers on promise of pace doesn't work with India, and they need to approach this differently, although picking bowlers of sufficiently robust or streamlined build will also help.
While A-team tours have often brought to the fore many batsmen, a few spinners and that odd seamer, the lack of emphasis on multi-role players is disappointing.
