Good choice. But ICC doesn't have to be so strict about replacements. They should have allowed us to use a temporary replacement until they recover. It is a bit like substitute. 

Cant come in and go as you please. Hence the rule. Have to agree here with ICC. But its a tough decision from the Indian Team Management , no doubt

They should make the final call as quickly as possible.Even if Dhawan gets fit towards end stages,changing batting orders will be problematic at that stage.If they play him & his injury aggravates,then that will be a messy situation.Unless they think Dhawan will recover within 10 days,they should make the replacement call official.

If team wants to have its cake & eat it too ,they should consider niggling one out of Shankar/DK/Jadhav. Sacrifice a pawn for The Greater Good. That way Dhawan can stay in the squad.Surely the world's richest board can find ways to do that .

Sensible decision. So happy that Rayadu or Rahane didn't get a call up. They are hoping Dhawan will recover but I doubt it. Injuries don't heal magically and take more time to heal than expected. 

Agreed.

If it's a hairline fracture it could heal fast but still he should be given 20 day rest.

Who knows with medical technology,.he gets healed faster.

Teams have to select 15 member squad and not 11. That's why there are strict rule about replacements.

Dont understand why the world cup standby players are not already in England... The conditions are very different & BCCI could have easily arranged them to play local club side or minor counties to get acclimatized . Travesty that some BCCI babus are already in England

Have a feeling pant will be successful  opening 

Definitely Not.

 

I have opened batting for 6 years ...slog hitting experts can start hitting only if they have good technique initially.

 

Sehwag got out at low scores (under 10) many times though he had a fair technique.

 

Pant will succeed big time at no 5. Higher than that -i doubt.
