As for us, Compton looks like he is back in the box seat for the test. So we will go in with an opener totally out of form and leave out a guy who scored a ton. Makes sense.

Dhawan is a rare species as well, in that he can actually offer 120+ kph of medium pace inspite of being a batsman.. Dhoni would dearly love it if he were international class with the bat as he would give him the much needed option of the 5th bowler who is a "decent pace" seamer..
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

Check out this awesome e-fed:
I think it was more likely that he just bowled in the tour game.. I am pretty sure he was bowling reasonably nipy medium pace even in the Windies during the A tour..
I can't even actually remember when I saw him bowl - IPL game maybe? Might even be imagining someone else but cricinfo has him down as offies on his profile page as well.
compton did enough right
