    Well I think you have to look at who's in front of the selectors eyes.

    i.e. What is likely to be the ODI line up that plays in the tri series?

    Dropping Dravid after a couple of bad games is insane, he was their only good player in England. Would sooner drop Tendulkar than Dravid.

    All very well saying you'd drop x y z but it's not worth much if you don't suggest who takes their spot.

    Yeah I think that's the thing.

    I think Rohit will/should come in, and as always I think that will be at the expense of VVS.


    I will not rest until I see Duncan Fletcher's name written on a donkey in downtown Mumbai though.

    Sack everyone.


    You don't play another overseas tour for ages so there's no rush. I will say though that Dravid is looking like the first of the big 3 to go now

    Kick out all the old guys bar tendulkar and Sehwag for home games. Make Praveen Kumar the captain. Make Kumble the coach. Bring back Harby (yeah he's not a great spinner anymore but at least he knows how to scrap) and forget this seam bowling direction for now. India's strength has always been spinners, and should still be spinners.

    Ensure that players have to meet specific fitness standards before being allowed to play.

    Grow a spine.

    Learn how to bat/bowl better.

    I'd drop Ishant/Yadav for Praveen (when he's fit) and VVS for Rohit, assuming he fails to make an impact in this series. Pujara comes in in the event that one of Kohli or Sharma fail.

    Wouldn't drop Sachin/Dravid. We've all misjudged them in the past and I think it's best left to them when they think they should leave the game.

    Oh and of course, drop Mithun from the squad and bring in Irfan.

    Nah, keep Yadav and Kohli imo. Both good finds who will probably come good in time.

    Yadav should be playing in English domestic cricket for me. Kohli would benefit there too.

    I've seen enough of Kohli to think he can definitely play at Test level tbh. Just needs to learn how to knuckle down and play a proper Test innings, his technique looks decent enough.

    Praveen should definitely be playing when he's fit though. Maybe not in Australia, but certainly everywhere else. If Yadav has to stay than Sharma has to go, really. Although I suppose it's a moot point as Zaheer isn't really fit all that often so they need three non-Zaheer seamers anyway.

    I'm sure there's a random seamer who took a Test five-for some time in 2008 that will save you.
