Pick your team...

shared by straight point on Wednesday, January 09, 2008

back to cricket...the way we used to discuss it...in not so distant past...remember??

amongst the rumor that india team management is still not happy of this truce...and hope that perth test will be played...i think team india have some problems in their backyard too...

of picking the right team. after the hindsight of two tests they must have come to know about what should be their batting order and what bowlers will they pick...hopefully...

so here is my team in this order...

sehwag
dk/dravid
vvs (coz i am still not convinced of dravid's form and convinced of lax's)
sachin
ganguly
dravid/dhoni
pathan
kumble
harbhajan
rp
ishant

i believe that whatever are the conditions we should field our best bowlers...and hence the selection of harbhajan...i think its no coincidence that wasim was called/asked to see pathan and him saying that pathan has re-gained some pace and in swing movement...adding his previous experience of bowling in australian conditions and batting depth he provides to the team gives him advantage over pankaj singh and vrv...besides i wont field two rookies after so much happened and the pressure cooker scenario of perth...

the only thing is whether they will drop dhoni or play dk...although i guess that dhoni's day has still not come but i would like team management to field dk...coz manner of all dhonis dismissals (except last one) were like beaten for pace and perth being pacier wicket i would bet my money more on dk than dhoni to succeed...

what is your team??

Ottayan said...

The replacements dont inspire trust.

KP said...

I agree with Ottayan. I agree may be jaffer isnt good choice...may be shewg to score more or maby be yuvi is dropped and go back to originial lineup.......rest is kool

John said...

Same line up but for the fourth bowling spot, toss up between Bhajji and Pathan, depending..

KP & John

going by the way both jaffer and yuvi are getting out...they both looked uncomfortable and doesn't inspire any confidence that they will turn the tide...

we don't have to forget that we are already 2-0 down and its high time we sort our batting order out...bowling surprisingly has hold its own so i am not overtly worried about that...

Today Yuvraj and Sehwag failed against what i could best describe as a club cricket attack .

Straight Point said...

uncle very true...

but more than yuvi i was very disappointed to see sehwag getting out himself out with reckless stroke...untill that he was looking good and good outing here would have served him good...anyway i will wait for second innings...you never know...

I will bring in sehwag for the opening or DK, which means yuvraj out and retain the old tried and tested combination.
