    Would Stuart Broad make India's strongest test XI?

    Stuart Broad, a player mediocre at best with the ball in test match cricket but for some strange reason a nailed on starter for England despite their strength in depth in this department.

    India, despite their number one ranking a team lacking test quality fast bowlers. Zaheer being the one exception.

    Does Broad make their strongest eleven?

    Yes.

    Even if one rates Ishant as a better bowler (I don't), he's better than Sree, Larry, Curly or Moe or whoever takes the third seamer's spot.

    He very much is a better option than Ishant or Sreesanth. Whether he is a better option than Munaf remains to be seen, imo.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Is he really better than Sreesanth and Ishant as a bowler?

    Not sure at the moment, but would probably make it for the extra batting.

    Women's Reservation Bill or the The Constitution (108th Amendment) Bill, is a pending bill in India which proposes to provide thirty three per cent of all seats in the Lower house of Parliament of India the Lok Sabha and state legislative assemblies shall be reserved for women. The Upper House Rajya Sabha passed it on 9 Mar 2010 [1].

    The seats to be reserved in rotation will be determined by draw of lots in such a way that a seat shall be reserved only once in three consecutive general elections.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    I think it's debateable with Ishant, but Sree's way too flaky.

    Anyway, moot point as you say; Broad's a far better all-round package.

    Surely Broad's definitely a better bowler than Ishant and Sreesanth? Am I missing something here?

    They both bowl in the subcontinent, so the fact they've averaged 750 for the last 2 years is the equivelant of veraging 15.
