    It's likely that we will field Sharma and Dinda as our pace bowling attack next text.

    i'd rather they played an extra spinner instead of a 2nd pacer. (assuming it's dustbowl/turner)

    Yeah but it's Chawla; not really a better option anyway.

    Jadeja's in as a batting all-rounder, surely?
    - As featured in The Independent.

    Well he was always picked as a bowling all rounder in limited overs cricket, but I think he's equally good in both facets, not exceptional obviously, but one aspect isn't considerably better than the other, it's a similar situation as Ashwin, even though Ashwin gets picked as a bowler.

    Jadeja is a solid pick. Much better bowler than Yuvraj and the other parttimers. On current for he's probably better than Ashwin. Good batsman too.

    Think it might be Dinda and Ishant next test...which is awful. Dinda is awful. Can't see either of those two taking any wickets apart from tailenders.

    Jadeja is a gun pick - might actually work wonders for India IMO. Far, far, better than Yuvraj anywho.

    Interesting squad, at least they have done something but it would seem that 4 of the top 5 get another chance to fail and Zaheer carries the can for the bowling being poor. Must admit I never expected Zaheer to get the chop in this series.
