Today they have selected Indian comprising 14 member squad, although combinaion is good, I think it is more Pro-Mumbai, any way ILC is coming up to give a representative cricket of Indian boys.

I think the Indian team is a more balanced outfit. A new captain at the helm, Anil Kumble, and a good mix of batsman and bowlers. Jumbo is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve and can be expected as usual to give more than his 100%. I felt that Irfan Pathan deserved a chance considering his good form against Younis Khan and Yousuf. Probably Murali Karthik and Harbhajan along with Kumble are one spinner too many. Hope the Indians come on top of the Pakis.

I think indian cricket board is a bit biased as you termed it promumbai.but i think now it has improved comparing to the past when indian team used to be flooded with mumbai guys,infact south indians were not given chances at all.for example if sreeshanth was there five years back, i dont think he would have got any place in the team.but even today they continue to give a priority to the players of mumbai.by this they are actually depriving the team of young talents who needs to be supported and grown.infact they are causing a big disgrace to the nation.hope the situation will improve in the coming years even though the chances for such a change is very less.

Biasing and politics in cricket were part and parcel of the game called cricket. It is not only involved with mumbai but can be easily seen with all the zones and this is not the particular zone that is responsible for this but the whole system is bcci is rotten and hence this bad sitation at the moment.
