    If Ronchi was good enough for Australia he wouldn't have moved to New Zealand.

    Hey we don't want him either, but you're welcome to enjoy Wade as your back up backstop.

    Nevill FTW.

    Still, there have been other keepers who started out rubbish and came good....he might be useful some time in the future.

    Third trade seems dumb. I doubt the Windies would give away their leading fast bowler who has the potential to average ~25 for a batsman who's never played Test cricket. Better trade would be Manoj Tiwary for Fidel Edwards, as Castro could be an upgrade on their existing seamers and Tiwary won't regularly play for India most likely.

    Yes please for Trade #2. Even Indian fans would take it, as Badrinath won't play anyway and Johnson has to be better than people like Sharma.

    Not sure on the first trade. With that said, Shakib's no worse than most of our batsman, and when you add in his bowling will help our balance quite a lot. So I would probably take it.

    Some other possible trades:

    Morne Morkel for Saeed Ajmal

    This sounds controversial, but Pakistan have a good alternative spinner (Rehman), South Africa have a load of options for the third bowler (Kleinveldt, de Lange, Abbott, Morris, etc.) and Morkel would fit Pakistan quite well, as a bowler (IMO) not particularly reliant on conditions. As good as South Africa are, they probably need a better spinner than Peterson, and this gives them one. Philander could work too, but I have doubts about his effectiveness on flatter wickets, those which aren't good for fast bowlers.

    Alternatively, Rory Kleinveldt for Pragyan Ojha. Ojha isn't making the India squad, but would be very helpful for a side without a high-quality spinner. Kleinveldt is probably an upgrade on their crap seamers, and is less raw than their good ones. South Africa are probably better off having youngsters for their reserve quicks.

    Luke Ronchi for Haris Sohail

    Sohail has seemingly an excellent FC average, but is behind several other bowlers in the pecking order. This trade gives New Zealand a potentially excellent bat, and a probable upgrade on some of their current ones, and Pakistan get a wicket-keeper which probably knows how to hold a cricket bat the right way.

    More to come when I can think of them.

    It's pretty much any bench warming Indian batsman for bench warming fast bowler.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Sri Lanka is much more desperate for seamers than India, but have less batsmen to throw away, perhaps Prassanna Jayawardene could be swapped for a fast bowler from Australia, similar to the last one I posted.
