    Assuming everyone is fully fit and in form the Indian line up would be:

    1)Sehwag
    2)Tendulkar
    3)Gambhir
    4)Yuvraj
    5)MS Dhoni
    6)S Raina
    7)Robin Uttappa
    8)Harbajan Singh
    9)Zaheer Khan
    10)Praveen Kumar / Ishant Sharma
    11)Ashish Nehra

    I realize that Uttappa hasn't played an ODI in over 2 years but I really feel he is perfect for the finisher's role. He has a wide range of shots and can go big anytime. Also unlike Yusuf Pathan he doesn't struggle with the pull shot, if anything I would say he is one of the better players of short bowling (in terms of scoring off it) in India.

    I wrote all their names in the also-in-the-run category. They're all in the run for a place in the playing XI for WC2011. But none of them should be certain of their places based on current form and class.

    Yuvraj, not a certainty based on form; but one of the contenders for that no. 5 spot, surely.

    Yusuf, same for no. 7 spot. Irfan too, specially if we are playing 2 specialist spinners (Harbhajan, Ojha).

    Nehra looks good at the moment, certainly one among the better contenders for the 4th bowler slot, but not a certainty especially given the fact that WC 2011 is gonna take place in the subcontinent (so there's a good case for playing 2 specialist spinners).

    He is gutsy and gritty, doesn't scream talent at all IMO. Could be a good solid player for India, but not one that will pull off the spectacular.

    Besides i rate Pujara,Raina And even Pandey somewhat ahead of him.

    Lol @ Pandey though. The guy couldn't handle the ball moving one bit in the latter stages of the IPL. To say he's better than a guy with a ODI hundred when his team was in trouble is a bit much.

    After watching Pandey again, I still have the same opinion. Not convinced at all.

    Really find his footwork awful, particularly with the moving ball. Sehwag may not move his feet but his bat comes straight when necessary and his head is still. Pandey looked at sea vs Albie with the ball doing a bit.

    I guess we are about to find out what Kholi is made of.

    But ultimately Pandey top scored with 52 and Kohli got out tamely for 14 .
    For the BRC only Pandey put up a fight and the reason Pandey looks awkward in the IPL is because in a T20 game he is always looking to manufacture forced shots(which he is good at too) while in First class cricket he looks more steady.

    Besides Looking good is only part of the package,ultimately it is the effectiveness that matters.Dhoni being top ODI batsmen for a long period now shows that .
    Both Vijay and Kohli,look good while batting but if i were to be picking for the test team at the moment i would pick Pandey and Badri ahead of them,also Pujara and Raina.

    Kohli got out because he was trying to win tbh, and he hurt his back. Bit harsh claiming Pandey played better when because of Pandeys inability to hit the moving ball in the first 4 overs, kohli had to walk in with a required rate of 12.

    To claim Pandey was good last night is ludicrous. Hope he proves me wrong, and he may very well do so. But Kohli is so clearly ahead in terms of a ODI slot.

    Panday looks quite mediocre will do well on sub cont pancakes while Kohli is just awesome all the way.10000+ runs minimum.

    Yes. Pandey has been highly disappointing recently.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
