    Harbhajan recalled to the Test side for BD.

    WTF.

    Why.

    Can't believe it. This is India's version of the recent Trott fiasco. Just because Kohli wanted to show the world Dhoni isn't in charge anymore by sacking Sir Ravi.

    cited the no of left handers in the bd lineup as one of the reasons. surely there must be other viable options than going back to harbhajan.

    Well that's pretty unexpected. He played just 2-3 games this season. Not cool, though hb is right when he says the cupboard is bare. Pitches and T20 to blame of course.

    They could try Jayant Yadav who did not look bad when playing for DD and has had a good domestic season with Haryana but it looks like there is a bit of "remove all CSK players coz they were all Srini's associates" starting to happen within Indian cricket.. It will not end well if it is what ends up happening

    Dunno about that, Raina is a test failure, and Jadeja has fallen out of favour in test cricket recently. The likes of Ashwin in all formats, and Raina, Jadeja and Dhoni in t20 and ODI cricket seem to be part of the furniture now.

    It's good to see Harbhajan back in the fold really. While he didn't bowl much in FC cricket this season, he is a test wicket taker and some one who thrives in the confidence of the captain. Not bad to have competition for the places imo.

    Should have gone with a young spinner. This is a step backwards.

    I'm not so sure it's as awful as what people are making it out to be. It's a one-off test, in the sun-continent and Harbhajan can trouble the left handers. It's obviously an issue that they haven't seem to have found out a second spinner - Karn, Kuldeep, Ojha, Mishra all seem to not be first XI quality. But perhaps we can get a good year out of Bhajji while the others - particularly Karn and Kuldeep - improve.

    Oh, and about time Jadeja was dropped from the Test team. Apart from that blitz at Lord's, he's been playing as a bowler and not an all rounder.

    All India have scheduled in terms of Test cricket for the coming year so far is the one-off match against BD.

    Might make sense if we had a full year ahead of Tests against some tough opponents away from home and needed a competent spinner to backup Ashwin, but as it stands this Test would have been a great opportunity to test out someone new.

    Yea I googled it. Can't find anything. Even all Cricinfo has down is the BD Tour then the World T20.
