Opening combo

If India go with five bowlers, Sehwag will once again find it difficult to make the XI. In his absence, who should partner Tendulkar? Gambhir looks good at one down. Uthappa has not convinced everyone he will be consistent at the top of the order. Is Praveen Kumar going to be our man?

irfan has shown what he can do in lower middle order...and dhoni too seems to have understood this...

throwing praveen kumar to brett lees pace will also be suicidal...so i guess we will see munaf going out sehwag coming in...

if this not happens then we will see tendulkar/robin combo however fragile robin looks against good pace...

Unliely, but I'd still go with Sehwag on top. If they pick him, it might be for Munaf, who along with Sehwag and Sree Santh are expendable every few games. My gut says, with Sehwag, the extra spin option will be more than useful. Big Q: who to drop then?
