    Jadeja is an awesome selection. Monster FC All-rounder.

    Good to see the back of Yuvraj and the weed. Zaheer, if fit should have been retained and Sharma dropped.

    Gotta say, there's no way Sharma or Dinda are better than Zaheer at the moment, IMO. He may be a shadow of his former self but Zaheer's shadow has always been a better bowler than those two. I could understand if they dropped Sharma as well or Yadav was fit but as it stands I think it's a bit of a knee-jerk.
    i think the management still believes that ishant has alot of potential and can come good

    Awe come on!

    The selectors were so close to the perfect squad! Zak being dropped is seriously lame, have they consulted with Dhoni about this?

    Jadeja needs to play the next test, this guy would have been a wrecker on the Mumbai pitch. Dunno much about this new pacer, but I'll take him over Ishant and Dinda for sure.

    Rahane has not been selected as an opener as stated before, so most likely he'll be slotted in at 6. Making a statement by dropping Zaheer but I would've preferred him over Ishant and Dinda tbh..

    Wonder who the two seamers will be (unless they go with Jadeja, Ashwin and Ojha). Dinda all but assured of a test debut I guess, which is lame.

    Think it says a lot that these are considered worthy of being remarked on rather than assumed as a given.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Apparently Dhoni was off to a meeting with the selectors after the game, so yes.

    Its worth noting that Zaheer, Harbhajan and Yuvraj are 3 of the gang of 4 I was talking about with Sachin

    Jadeja and Ashwin as lower middle order bats is sounding really awesome already. I'm still a bit concerned about Jadeja's batting, but he has scored a load of runs in Ranji so hopefully he finds his place.

    Parwinder and Dinda for the next test. Ishant can gtfo..

    If we don't put a decent show and Dhoni fails in the next game, I think it's over for him tbh.

    Ah, I still disagree with this Zak decision, hopefully he's back for the Aussie series, we'll need him. Anyhow the rest of the selection picks are awesome.

    Looks like this new committee is aggressive and isn't afraid to make bold moves, good stuff.
