even though bengal wicket keeper got a chance to make his test debut,i think the best option was rohit sharma.he is very talented.eventhough in the last match he didnt perfoemed well,dont forget the triple century made by him in the ranji trophy.

Rohit Sharma was injured at the start of the match and hence Dhoni was forced to play Saha. It was not a decision he wanted to make, but was forced to make. So in that sense it is not because Saha is more talented, but because Dhoni had no choice to make. I do not think Saha can play as an out and out batsman, so the balance of the team is definitely affected by this, but when there are no options available, you are not bothered about the balance.

I heard Rohit got injured while practicing. Actually he was selected to play in the place of Laxman if Laxman is not available. Young pace bowlers should have got the chance to play. Selection of final 11 players could have been better but only captain and coach can choose the final eleven. Happy Mylotting!

Well my friend I think you have not followed the news from the start. If you would have seen then you would know that Saha was picked because Dhoni was not at his 100 percent. Which meant the team should play an extra player who can keep. Dravid is out of question. And so the obvious choice was Saha. And more over, as far as I know, Rohit Sharma is also injured or had some problems. But I guess the best player for this situation would have been Dinesh Kartik. But the sad part is that he is a part of the team.

I also read the news that Rohit Sharma had got injured and that is the reason why Saha was picked. I think most probably selectors should have picked some extra bastsman rather than injured team. I am on the opinion that there should be a fitness test and the players who are injured should not be picked and other players should be given so that they don't have less players to chose for the playing eleven.
