If Kuldeep manages to bowl the same way he was in the nets...  Dare I say he'll win us the game.  Time to unleash the true heir to Warne in his favorite hunting ground.  Hopefully both Ashwin & Kuly play together. 

Problem is Kuldeep loses confidence if he gets hit in first few overs and then starts bowling short. Against Aus in Dharamsala and Sydney he got early wickets and changed the course of the match.. so its a gamble..

Thing with Kuldeep is he barely bowls long hops or hit me balls which is usual for a leggie.  He can be over pitched at times or slower off the pitch to carve him out.  Gabba negates his weaknesses to an extent coz of zip & bounce.  Let's see though would be a massive gamble but one I think worth taking..  Considering other options we have.

4 bowlers is incredibly risky since load on Ashwin will be too much, he isn't match-fit as per latest reports. And Aussies are capable of sending a couple of our quicks to hospital making it a 1 man bowling unit. Whatever Mayank/Shaw score at #3, Kuldeep will do 80% of that at #8 and he will bowl 25 overs per innings with the capability of changing the course of the match.

Maybe with Rahane - a calm, patient, encouraging guy - being the captain, Kuldeep can hold his emotions together better than he would under Kohli.  Just a thought ...

Assuming none of these guys are available:  Jadeja, Ashwin, Bumrah, Vihari, Rahul

 

Sharma

Gill

Pujara

Pant

Rahane

Agarwal (or if Pant can't keep, got to go with Saha)

Thakur

Yadav

Saini

Tyagi

Siraj

12th man:  Nitin Patel

 

-- To state the obvious:  Having a solid all-rounder like Jadeja is invaluable for team balance!  Tough to pick a team without a multidimensional guy. 

-- In 2 matches, Siraj goes from being debutant to senior-most seamer?  Bizarre.

Where does Rahul come from. He is already in b lore. We have 4 no 11s. We need more batsmen
