    Haha, I understand it is harsh on Virat Kohli, but who would you remove from my eleven to accommodate him ?

    Excluding Kholi over Yusuf, Raina, or even Yuvraj and Ghambir seems bizarre to me. He's been excellent, why leave him out?

    I've always considered it vital to have five front-line bowlers. Making do with part-timers isn't enough. If you need your #7 to make a big hundred you've failed. Lower-order batting is barely used, but even if you bowl brilliantly you need that 5th bowler. Dhoni at #7 is a waste.

    I really haven't seen much of Yusuf's bowling. Is he an all-rounder or a part-timer? I'd be willing to give hime the benefit of the doubt.

    Playing all-rounders at 8-9 is a big part of what got India out of the T20 this year, while playing 5 planned bowlers is a big part of what won it for them in 07.

    Tendulkar, Sehwag, Gambhir, Kholi, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Harbhajan, Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Zaheer, Nehra

    I don't think Yusuf's actually a better bowler than Yuvraj at ODI level. Picking him wouldn't give them five frontline bowlers; that's why Jadeja was persisted with for so long.

    Yousuf Pathan vs Virat Kohli is an interesting one. There is no question that the latter is a far more accomplished bat, but the former arguably brings more balance to the side. Kohli would be a misfit at number six or number seven, and unfortunately for him, the top five spots have been taken.

    Yuvraj Singh has to play in my opinion. He is India's most destructive batsman in ODIs bar none. As for Suresh Raina - he is a very good finisher (Asia Cup match against Pakistan anyone ?) and he is in fine form. Like I said, it is harsh on Virat Kohli, but it is hard to accommodate him in the first eleven.

    The only way India can NOT win the WC is a batting collapse. Virat Kohli will be a better option than both Waterboy and Raina to prevent that, regardless of opponents and playing conditions and form.

    Nah, I don't think Virat Kohli is a better ODI batsman than Yuvraj Singh; it is not even close. Suresh Raina is a number six-number seven batsman, which means if there is a collapse, it will not be because of him. Anyway, India cannot afford to be thinking along those lines.

    DWTA TBH. IMO the only way India can not win the WC is the same way we didn't win the 2003 WC - the bowlers getting it horribly wrong. And the chances of screwing up are greater now since we have a worse bowling lineup than in 2003, and there are 3 knock out games this time around.

    Disagree personally...If you look at India's ODI losses in the last few years, most of them involved a batting collapse somewhere, major or minor...

    I agree with this.

    Would be my squad too.. But I would probably play Kohli ahead of Yusuf.

    Wouldn't he be wasted at number seven ?
