India ODI team selection, Aug 7th, 2008

Selectors of Indian Cricket team are trying to do a fair job. I would say still they are a bunch of jokers and stupid.

To retain in Sachin, they are kicking out Robin Uthappa. He will get another chance soon, with Sachin's groin in question. Sachin will open with Sehwag. Gambhir will bat in a #3 and Raina at #4. Dhoni is back, so he will be in at #5. Yuvraj at #6. I Pathan #7. Then Praveen kumar, Bhajji, Zaheer Khan (umimpressive nowadays!) and Ojha. Virat Kohli gets a surprise call. Why? Ishant Sharma is rested, and be back for Champions trophy.

Hopefully, Munaf will do justice. But why is Parthiv Patel there for ODIs? Is he the 3rd test WK? Dinesh Kaarthick shown the doors?

Squad for Sri Lanka ODIs
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Parthiv Patel, Irfan Pathan, Praveen Kumar, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, RP Singh, Munaf Patel, Pragyan Ojha.

Squad for Champions Trophy
Same as above.
In: Ishant Sharma.
Out: Parthiv Patel, Munaf Patel
