    Indian Squad of 17 for Test Series v Pakistan (not in batting order), providing they are fully recovered from injury:

    1 A. Chopra
    2 V. Sehwag
    3 R. Dravid
    4 S.Tendulkar
    5 S. Ganguly (c)
    6 "Very Very Special" Laxman
    7 P. Patel +
    8 I. Pathan
    9 A. Agarkar
    10 A. Kumble
    11 H. Singh (replace with R. Powar if he is injured)
    12 Y. Singh
    13 G. Gambhir
    14 A. Salvi
    15 L. Balaji
    16. Z. Khan
    17. D. Dasgupta + (???) (I haven't seen the other Indian Wicket-keepers lately, Ratra etc.)

    S. Ramesh - poor footwork, IMO doesn't possess a good enough technique to warrant selection at test level, would be especially harsh on Chopra to drop him as well given his good performance is Australia.
    A. Nehra - Has been very poor since the WC, donkey in the field, donkey with the bat. Leave him at home.

    Batting order is settled IMO and does not need to be changed apart from injuries.

    Apologies if I have missed out anyone obvious.

    No to Waqar Younis. He is well past his best -- sad but true.
    Pick Osama bin Shariar or Mohammad Irshad instead.

    I don''t think Salvi or Harbhajan will be fit for the pakistan tour.
    Vinayak Mane is a much better player than Gambhir IMO -- but I doubt if either will be picked.
    Amit Mishra should go but again he probably won't.

    Is waqar playing? I thought he wasn't picked.
    Wasim Akram: The most sKiLlFuL bowler in history!

    Mcgrath said he is fond of the genius "Akram would power through the crease and do whatever he wanted with the old and new ball"

    Allan Border "If I ever get a chance to be reborn as a cricketer, I would want to be Wasim"

    Richards, Tendulkar and Waugh described Akram as the most dangerous bowler they had ever faced.

    It's very very unlikely Mongia will ever play for India again.
    As for Bahutule, its possible although I think India would be making a mistake picking him -- Mishra is a better prospect.

    I want ramesh to be given a chance with the test team. He has done no wrong. ppl always say his footwork is poor but the fact is he has got runs. even in australia he got runs, but was unlucky not to play. So he should be in the squad as well.

    My Indian Test Squad to Pakistan:

    1. Akash Chopra
    2. Virender Sehwag
    3. Rahul Dravid
    4. Sachin Tendulkar
    5. Sourav Ganguly (c)
    6. VVS Laxman
    7. Yuvraj Singh
    8. Ramesh Powar
    9. Parthiv Patel (w/k)
    10.Ajit Agarkar
    11.Anil Kumble
    12.Irfan Pathan
    13.Zaheer Khan
    14.Amit Bhandari
    15.Lakshmipathy Balaji

    Ive been very impressed with Irfan Pathan and Lakshmipathy Balaji over here on the pitches here in Australia. Both these bowlers have a lot of heart and will complement Zaheer and Agarkar very well. Nehra misses out, due to consistently poor showings at the top level.

    Ramesh Powar adds that all round versatility the Indian's have been looking for a long time. His off spinners are very handy and his batting is quite solid as well. Pathan and Agarkar are good exponents of reverse swing and should get it in Pakistan.

    Overall, I feel that this squad has the ability to beat Pakistan in their own backyard. Yuvraj adds as an extra batsman, just in case of an injury or a form slump.

    i think that waqar should be picked for the side as his experience is tremendous.....yes he is past his best but agaibst the indians its gonna come down to alot of crunch situations and u need someone like him to fight it out......otherwise the pakistan bowling lineup is great......shoab sami and shabbir make a great trio and complement each other well.....i think that waqar may not find a place in the side but should be in the sqaud incase of ijury to any of these three........the spinner is an issue and i strongly feel that saqlain mustaq should be given the go ahead in front of kaneria and malik........

    i think the series is gonna be close but the pakistanis should edge it.....the bowling attack is far superior to the indians and shoaib has been n great form for the past few months.....putting in series winning performances against south africa and newzealand(the kiwis ofcourse were on their home turf)

    I don't see anything great about ramesh powar. And I rate S.ramesh higher than akash chopra.
