from all that ive seen of him playing he looks like a great player and would be a great asset to the indian test side - particularly in the field, however the indian batting is strong and it would be hard for him to get in without an injury.
he could replace Chopra, but he has been a valuable asset opening the batting...
the other batsman he could replace is Ganguly - Yuvraj has a higher first class average than Ganguly by 1, so you would think that there wouldn't be too much difference in the batting strength but Yuvraj is a far superior fielder - yesterday the channel 9 commentators where commenting on what a difference someone like that can make to a feilding side.
as for the captaincy - Tendulkar, Dravid, VVS or Anil Kumble all like to have their say and im sure could do at least almost as good a job as Ganguly if not better. just a thought anyway cause the Indian ground fielding could realy use a boost
