Irani chai

Few questions for the selectors when they pick the Rest of India squad:

Since both Test openers will be playing for Delhi, what is our second choice opening line-up?

Will the middle order comprise the same people that were befuddled by Mendis? Any chance we might get to see Badri, Yuvi or Rohit?

Who will share the new ball with Zaheer? This selection might give a clue regarding Sree's future, and the selector's plans for Praveen in the Test side.

The break from blogging was prompted by a job and location change. With a new job and an apartment in strange Mumbai, I will try to be more regular.

I for one would like to see Yuvi and Rohit play.

good to see you John. not so good to see Jaffer. Reckon Delhi could've loaned RoI an opener.

Ya, it looks like they've more than enough..
Jaffer looks like he has nothing left to prove in the domestic circuit.. So they could've gone for a new guy - Asnodkar maybe..
Sree is missing. Is it the beginning of a long hibernation?

Thanks Homer.

Ott,
Long solid innings in ODIs will convert to a Test spot, is the message the selectors under Venx sent out - Gambhir and Dhoni being examples of that. Yuvi and Rohit have had the opportunities to do that in the recent past, but have not made that defining score that would carry them over the edge.
