    WIndies will find a way to sneak in a couple of tests imo, they always do.

    FTP suggests you've got:

    Tour of Sri Lanka
    Home series v South Africa
    Tour of Pakistan (most likely in the UAE)
    5-0

    Are we still following the FTP tho? I thought that was dissolved?

    Cricinfo has all the 'confirmed' series penned in (Ashes and SA in BD and the like), but nothing for India, which suggests none of those are confirmed yet?

    I think it's only got the confirmed ones for 2015, not 2015-16.

    I think the Sri Lanka/India series may be off, but the other two are probably still on.

    Bhajji could be useful in a home series against SA tbf. Faf ABDV and Amla are all righties but Jadeja isn't really worth his spot in the Test side and if Bhajji is anywhere near his best he can be a very useful support act to Ashwin.

    India will probably stick in a series between the SA series and Australia in January, now that the SA series has been brought forward. Opens a window for IPL 2 (a short tournament they are reportedly planning in Dubai). Didn't know it could start as quickly as this year. I am happy we have 7 tests in the next few months.

    No way. This is the worst possible spinner they could've selected. Even if the spin cupboard is a bit empty after the Ojha ban, give someone else a chance, anyone.

    Why's the SL series off?

    Would be a very interesting series to watch. Both teams filled with youngsters virtually all the way through the order.

    It's test matches, not ODIs. If some one is not breaking the walls down, it's better to have some one who they feel can do a job. It cannot be a coincidence the Virat is captain and Harbhajan is back. Dhoni just didn't have the confidence in him which affects the performance.

    That makes no sense, Pratters.. Bhaji was the third spinner even against Australia in 2013.. He just sucked so bad that he had to be dropped.. In a couple of those games, he even got a bowl ahead of Ashwin... He is washed up.. That is the plain and simple truth. He has been coasting by with mediocre performances with Ganguly and then Sachin around and was dropped only when it was so obvious that there was no upside to having him in the side. I would have preferred another spinner but if India wanted a second offie, he was really the only choice.


    Now he may not even play given that Karn is also in the squad and Virat rates him. But I am guessing we will go in with 3 spinners.

    He was washed up then, but is he washed up now? I don't know about that tbh. It's worth giving a shot as it's not like we have lot's of other spinner breaking the walls down. It's not that difficult to understand HB.

    I'd be ok with him being selected in ODIs. What on earth has he done in the last year to be considered for a test recall though? He's barely played any FC and been rubbish the few times he's been on field. Bring him in in place of Jadeja in ODIs if you want, he can definitely do a job. But he just should not be in the frame for tests, sorry.

    My point is very very simple... A washed up Harbhajan still happens to be the second best off spinner in our country.. And hence he has been selected. But he is not in great form and I do not expect him to set the world alight.
