the best possible team was chosen, the only change would have been pathan and vijay. instead uthappa and rahane should have been given chance. Talking about viru,gauti,yuvi - has the author not watched ipl they are in worst form of their lives. the 3 teams for which they were the marqee players have sunk to the bottom
For the World Cup 2015, we need to have Pujara and Rahane in the side. And if we need to have them, we have to give them chances/blood them now itself and let them settle into the ODI side. But the selectors dropped Rahane and arent interested in giving Pujara a chance. Pujara can be a terrific ODI cricketer because he can score at a good rate and yet he has technique for testing conditions. And Australia/NZ is going to be testing for sure. I dont see Murali Vijay sticking around for long with the kind of technique he displays. Rahane and Dhawan to open, Kohli at 3, Pujara at 4, Raina at 5, Dhoni at 6 and the rest..... Have the likes of Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik and Manoj Tiwary as backup.

my friend joke is that. both yuvraj, gambhir nad sehwag are stil good enough. If rohit sharma aftr getting 80 games cd do nothing.. Let him play in CT and win it for India to prove himself
He has done changes in the team and shaped them well for the world cup victory.under his selection panel India won the world cup after a long time.he backed yuvraj always and he was the main contributor for the world cup.
