India's ODI Squad for home series

My take on India's just announced ODI side for home series against Australia and Pakistan:
  • As expected, Dhoni is declared the Captain - My disapproval nod and best wishes.
  • It is always good to have Pathan back.
  • I am not so happy to have Bhajji back in the team. But it will ensure that Powar will not be complacent.
  • I would have liked to see Sehwag in the team. Home series is always good to get someone important back in form.
  • While all the batsman have picked themselves up naturally, it is sad to see the young Rohit Sharma replaced for the series.
  • I am glad that Agarkar has been dropped - I just hope that this time it is for good.
I think that this series can be a landmark series for Indian fast bowling. India can afford to play 3 fast bowlers in a match and 2 spinners-such is current form of Indian seamers. Pathan and Zaheer will be automatic choices and RP or Sree can give them good support with Chawla and Powar/Bhajji.
