It's a big mess atm, you have 3 guys at the wrong end of 30, the guys on the right side of 30 are struggling with form. There is only one youngster in the batting lineup, there needs to be at least 2 and 3 would be the upper limit. Laxman is definitely gone and the guy that joins him looks like it would be one of the openers.
Arguably the biggest problem here (possibly already mentioned) is that Dhoni has suggested he will retire from one format at the end of 2013, and one would have to assume it will be tests. Who takes over as captain?
Sehwag? Too old.
Dravid? Too old/retired
Tendulkar? Too old/retired
So unless it's Gambhir/Kohli or one of the bowlers, they are going to have to bring somebody in and fast-track them to be captain. It seems as though India have no long-term plans whatsoever.

I don't have much hopes for the future after reading this piece.Everybody just making excuses and the attitude of N.Srinivasan is totally sickening.

Check out this awesome e-fed:
IIRC the selection panel in India only picks the touring squad, not the XI for each test?
yep.. the playing XI is selected by Dhoni and Fletcher, AFAIK.
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Seinivasan is like that hypothetical Sachin fanboy who everyone hates
You're the one who is friends with him though. Bigger indictment on you HB
