He "wants" won't do in international cricket. Even Raina "wants" to do well in Tests' date=' shouldn't he be given another shot as well?[/quote'] one has scored 100 in last game other slogs in tests and i will back raina when he is compared to player of similar ability if tht player is alsi:hysterical:

Rather one has scored a "meaningless" 100 in the last game. :giggle: If people start judging others on their previous game then Kohli should be kicked out of the ODI side with Raina at no.3 as he has scored 4 50's in the last 4 games. :winky:

loan us herath :(( he is best in world after ajmal imo
I don't like to rate them but yes Herath is an underrated bowler. You can try some damp wickets and unleash that Bhootheshwar and Ahamad against the Aussie's top order.. who knows might work. But sorry, we can't loan Herath. At best the only spinners we can offer you are Dharmasena or Ashoka De Silva. They were handy spinners in their days but now even more effective because both can "turn" the game on his head single-handedly :winky: (specially in India, without the DRS).

Dhoni opts out of Irani. Not sure if his attitude is right towards test, yes he's playing a lot of cricket and honestly if he felt he needed time off, should've rested himself for 5th ODI well in advance.

it is going to be the same team and same strategy that we used against england. However much the indian cricket fan wish, the thick skinned sponsors of players are not going to be affected. Expect watching a replay of last series. Dhoni might come up with some new excuses this time though. Some of my guesses - "you know they are experienced batsmen.. if they cannot score how can we expect any youngster to perform" "we need to give more exposure to ::: since he is the best spinning allrounder we have. He will develop with time" "their fast & spin bowlers outballed our veterans" do not expect any pitch stories this time. Another day in life of ever optimistic fans!

Warner not coming would be a huge blow for Australia. He would have plundered runs against our attack. Hope he recovers and get fits by the time 1st test starts, 3 weeks to go
Lol..are you serious? He hasn't got the class of KP in Test cricket to do that. Was struggling to put bat on ball in West Indies where the ball wasn't turning a lot compared to here. He might have hammered us at Aus but I don't see him having that class to do the same here.

Point made based on a few things: - He's a left hander - Has had an up and down career - Has looked susceptible to spin so far Jimmy Adams, Hayden, Flowers, Chanderpaul, Cook, Srrauss, Darren Bravo , Ryder etc all of whom who have had a few things common with Warner either launched / relaunched their test careers in India against better spin attacks than the present one.. All it will need for him to score 100s at will is a few 4s in the first 3-4 overs, Dhoni will gift him with well spread fields which no other skipper recently would have given.

Possible XI Warner > Sehwag Cowan > Gambhir Hughes = Pujara Watson > Tendulkar Clarke > Kohli Khawja/Smith = Rahane/Jadeja/Rohit Wade = Dhoni Johnson = Ashwin Pattinson/Starc > Ishant Siddle > Sreesanth/BK/Shami Lloyn < Ojha IMO On current form, India have only one player who is doing better than the Aussies. Tough series ahead for us.

Surely Australia cannot win this series. No seamers made a huge impact in last series, the England spinners had the most wickets and best averages. Australia doesn't have 2 quality spinners, Lyon is decent at best and inexperienced in these conditions. My prediction is India somewhere between 2-0 and 4-0

Isnt there a restriction on number of players in a touring squad? Shameless Aussies trying to plug in maximum - after all will it be not India who will be bearing the expenses of food and stay for these many?
No i do not think there is.England have a performance squad touring with them everywhere.India had a huge squad in odis in cbseries.

Strong bowling attack with Siddle, Jhonson, Pattinson and Lyon likely to be the first choices. Against our out of form/declining batting unit, they would be a handful. Among the batsmen , I expect Clarke, Warner and Hughes to score plenty of runs. Advantage Australia.

Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav doubtful for Australia series

MUMBAI: There is a big question mark over India's leading pace bowlers Zaheer Khan and Umesh Yadav making it to the national team for the first two of the four-match Test series against Australia starting on February 22. Zaheer is yet to recover from the calf-injury that left him stranded during one of Mumbai's Ranji Trophy league matches last month. On Wednesday, the bowler was at Bangalore's National Cricket Academy (NCA). Reports from the academy suggest that he has been advised "some more rest" before he regains full fitness (approximately two weeks).The injury has ruled Zaheer out of the Mumbai squad for the Irani Trophy against Rest of India starting February 6, and the two warm-up matches against the visiting Australians who will arrive next month. Yadav, suffering from a lower-back stress injury, missed the last three of the four Tests against England and is still recovering. The youngster from Nagpur is a serious case-study for someone who has been mercilessly over-bowled in the last one year. Yadav played the three-Test series against the West Indies in November 2011, flew to Australia in early 2012 for the four-Test series and the ODIs, played the Indian Premier League which was followed by the two-Test series against New Zealand, the Twenty20 Champions League and finally the first Test against England in Ahmedabad after which he broke down. Presently recuperating at home, Yadav is expected to take another three weeks before he can regain fitness. India's preparations for the Test series against Australia are likely to begin with the Irani Trophy, followed by the two warm-up matches against Australia. These matches will also help the selectors keep an eye on all pace-bowling options available to choose from. While this is Yadav's first painful brush with injury post his international debut, Zaheer has suffered several injuries in the past and was on the verge of breaking down all through the past year before the selectors finally decided to drop him for the Nagpur Test against England. With no opportunities to prove his form and match fitness in the coming two weeks, his selection for the Test series against Australia remains a very unlikely prospect. Yadav, meanwhile, is not just bearing the brunt of a packed schedule. Sources say most Team India batsmen insist on facing him during pre-match nets and other practice sessions as he is one of the fastest bowlers in the country. That has taken a further toll on him.

3 Seamers will be useless in Indian conditions in Summer. They dont have good spinners and they have an untested batting lineup in Indian conditions. But Indian team is not doing well in tests at the moment. So hopefully we will see a good contest.:two_thumbs_up:
