India in a lot of trouble with their bowling attack. Going to need their batsmen to have an amazing series unless some bowlers find form.
the best solution for India will be to play 2 frontline spinners (and 2 pacers) in their attack. India has no dearth of talent in spin bowling department. Besides Harbhajan, we could choose anyone between Mishra and Ojha in the playing XI (even Chawla has an outside chance). And this time the tournament being held in the subcontinent, this strategy should work.India in a lot of trouble with their bowling attack.

He is in brilliant form right now,no denying that.I have a feeling he has peaked too early though.And when I say he isn't the ODI bat he once was,I mean he is nowhere close to his exploits in the 90s.His 200 was brilliant but not his best ODI innings imo.What people have to realize is that he is getting on in age-turns 38 next year.It would be too much to expect a lot from Sachin,great though he undoubtedly is.His best shot at the WC was in 2003.I don't see him getting anywhere close to his exploits in that WC and I would be happy if he proves me wrong.
What did he do in his last match again?

McKay/Southee/possible batting option
Possibly our best shot ever of taking out the world cup. Clearly going to lose in the semis to the runner up.
