    Always humbling when we hear stories of stars coming from such backgrounds.

    Good luck to him, whether he makes his debut or not.

    Well, well, Awana has had some life already and he couldn't be much worse than Ishant Sharma, to be cynical. I guess the value of having Jadeja in the side is that he can provide variation and depth to the Ashwin-Ojha pairing. But I really don't see him justifying his place too well because we really do not need another lower order batsman, just better upper-order functioning. The changes I really want to see will not be happening I guess. First, I wanted Rohit Sharma in the side. Since that will not happen, I would really like to see Rahane open with Gambhir, and Sehwag play in the middle order, preferably at number 4. He has wanted to do so for so long, and it might be the ideal change. Sachin can be pushed down to number 5 and Kohli at number 6.

    good luck trying to get Tendy to change his batting position
    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

    Maybe it should be presented to him as a final frontier kind of a thing. Tell him how past masters like Viv Richards moved down the order in their twilight years.

    Yeah, and since he's such a sticky sort and unlikely to go by himself, maybe we can keep presenting him with new final frontiers down the order until he's 12th man

    Don't think tendulkar has batted at 5 for a long long time (cases of inserting a night watchman excepted). Last I remember was when both Ganguly and Dravid were in godly firm and Azhar decided to put them at 3&4.

    Tendulkar will bat where he's asked. I'm sure he'll say he feels more comfortable at four but I'm equally sure that if Dhoni said "we're not travelling too well so I'd really like to try something different", he wouldn't have a tantrum over it.

    Yeah, agreed. Though at the same time not sure what's the benefit of playing Sehwag at 4.

    Yeah I think it'd be a pointless move too, but if Dhoni and the team management said they wanted it to happen, Tendulkar would not cause a fuss over it.

    Well, Sehwag will be better off down the order since his hand-eye co-ordination is deteriorating. Plus, ideally, the number 4 slot should be filled by either Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma.
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.
