    Rest of India v Mumbai

    This looks like a pretty big domestic game (from Sep 22-26 at Mohali) coming up in India, ahead of the Australian tour.

    Teams:
    Rest of India
    1 Aakash Chopra, 2 Gautam Gambhir, 3 Dheeraj Jadhav, 4 Dinesh Mongia (capt), 5 Sridharan Sriram, 6 Ambati Rayudu, 7 Parthiv Patel (wk), 8 Murali Kartik, 9 Shiv Shankar Paul, 10 Zaheer Khan, 11 Yogesh Golwalkar, 12 Venugopal Rao, 13 Joginder Sharma, 14 Siddharth Trivedi

    Mumbai
    1 Wasim Jaffer, 2 Vinayak Mane, 3 Vinod Kambli, 4 Amol Muzumdar, 5 Bhavin Thakkar, 6 Vinayak Samant (wk), 7 Sairaj Bahutule (capt), 8 Ramesh Powar, 9 Robin Morris, 10 Avishkar Salvi, 11 Munaf Patel, 12 Vineet Indulkar, 13 Nilesh Kulkarni, 14 Swapnil Hazare, 15 Rohit Sharma

    Anyone there (apart from those who have already played tests) to watch out for ?
    In 1995, 16 commandos of the GRU Spetsnatz went
    head to head against 16 US ARMY Rangers in Alaska in ten tests of physical strength and endurance.
    Final Result: Spetsnatz 9 US Army Rangers 1

    RIP Vladimir Belyanov (d December 24 1942) Tamanskaya Division (Taman Guards) - Pitomnik Airfield, Stalingrad

    sorry dude, im confused... you have no tendulkar, dravid, etc. there, yet you have players who will (should be) selected for the indian squad i.e. chopra, khan, patel, plus a few maybes.

    If Sachin Tendulkar's elbow recovers in time, I'd be very surprised if he didn't turn out for Mumbai in this game.

    theres no chance he'll be playing again by then, even if his treatment is a 100% success.

    if chopra can have a good game i think his position would be pretty safe (with yuvraj's form(or lack of it) and all).
    pathans place in the side is fixed but none of the others (bala, nehra, agarkar,zaheer(to an extent)) are any good. i'm hoping(no hype) salvi and munaf can do a better job than this lot.

    I heard he could be in doubt of even making the Aussie series?

    I for one certainly hope so - he has a good partnership going with Sehwag, and it gives the Indian line-up a lot more solid feel IMO.

    Of course, SRT's injury may mean he's in anyway with Yuvraj in the middle order.

    Yuvraj does not deserve a place in either the Test or the ODI side. Even Pathan can bat better than him now. They can choose Sridharan Sriram instead, he's more seasoned, and can play spin a lot better.

    The Mumbai team is quite good...no complaints about that. I only hope Agarkar does not have a good game- he's had too many free rides.

    As for Rest... there are too many players here not good enough to make an Indian team. Chopra and Gambhir should have a good game, and should edge out Sehwag and Patel. Hmmm...why Patel? The new keeper, Dinesh, is a lot better, and he's not too bad a batsman- he's better! How many chances will Murali Karthik get? He just goes for way too many runs between wickets! And who's this Yogesh? Clearly, this is a shady selction, probably to get some reservation for Central Zone, but why wasn't JP Yadav picked? He's an all-rounder and a lot more seasoned than this Yogesh.

    The timing of this match is atrocious. A lot of the Indian team's best players are in England, and the quality will be lacking. This is an age-old problem with Indian domestic cricket- the national players hardly ever play in the domestic matches, even when they're out of form, and back home, there are some very consistent players, who hardly get a game for India.

    Sridharan Sriram if he doesn't play a Test for India will probably go down as one of the better players not to play Test cricket for India.

    At this stage it is likely that a spot is opening up, for him or Yuvraj to get a spot, hhowever, only as a fill-in for Tendulkar.

    Sriram should walk in, but Yuvraj has to have a very superior Champions Tropht to get into the Test team- he should not be considered on present form.

    I think Yuvraj would get in on his form v Pakistan earlier this year.

    what are you smoking ? can you back that statement up that Pathan is better then Yuvraj as a batsman ? First of all we are talking about the Aus series which is a test series. Yuvraj as far as I remember had a pretty decent test series last time he played in Pakistan, and he has played only 4 matches and BTW he averages 51. In ODIs his last 50 came in the Asia Cup(and that was not eons ago). He has failed in the matches since, but that's been only 6 matches after that. yes he is on a lean patch in ODIs lately, but we are mostly talking about selection in the context of the Aus series which is a test only series. but could you please enlighten us on the batting accomplishments of Pathan that make him better then Yuvraj.
