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.
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.
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 am very happy and it will allow me to have lot more rice."
Eoin Morgan on being given a rice cooker for being Man of the Match in a Dhaka Premier Division game.
And he looks awful with my man Kohli on the other end oozing sexyness.
I guess we are about to find out what Kholi is made of.
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.
Yup Kohli>=Pandey......for now
Raina>Kohli for match winning ability....
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.
