Pankaj, on the other hand, is 100% fit. He just had one poor game this season, which was after Awana was picked over him. Maybe the next game will be good.

Twenty20 used to be boring.
Haven't seen him play but heard today that he has gained pace this season, after working with Meyrick Pringle.
Is bowling 135 to 140 Km consistently. If true, then selectors really must his face or something.
The Indian selectors seem to have something against people who have played enough FC cricket to have figured out their game, worked out their strengths and weaknesses, etc.
It makes no sense. They are looking for the next wonderkid who's going to take over the world instead of taking a much more 'known' quantity who can actually contribute. Yes, the step up is big for the next level, but that's true no matter what (whether you select from the A team, U19 team, etc). If you're not going to use FC as a barometer to judge who is ready, then why even have a FC system in the first place.

Here's a Video of him bowling this season. Consistently bowls 135 to 140 now. 6 feet 6 inches and pretty accurate and also can bowl for long durations, if required.
That is very much an India-ready bowler. Tall, muscular, decently fast, very accurate and also capable of moving the ball well. Easily an immediate replacement for Ishant Sharma, and should be playing ahead of the likes of Ashok Dinda. He'd do well once Umesh Yadav returns and partners him, with Bhuv Kumar first-change. Fits in nicely. There's not much you can debate against that video, as it's not a stat sheet or a training recording.
Ignored for Fast bowlers camp which had 11 seamers and 7 spinners. Ignored for Rest of India team to play Mumbai in Irani trophy. Ignored for India A team to play Australia. Ignored for Boards president 11 to play Australia.
Bloody hell. He surely has pissed someone off in the BCCI. Must have been close to Lalit Modi or something. Ludicrous.
Must've been banging Sreenivasan's daughter on the sly (if he has one). How in hell does that guy not get a game when you have utter chuts like Dinda and Jadeja waltzing into the national team?
