Well, Indian bowling has been not impressive except for two (Zaheer and Harbajan). I think Shreeshanth could be a good choice for second bowler in tests, as he has good bowling record in test matches. I think Ashish Nehra or RP Singh should be given a chance in test matches. Both are swing bowlers and can swing the ball in both ways... May be one of these two should be a good choice as a third bowler for India in tests... Thoughts please

What's the use any one can do the job its just the change of hands and pockets,just a time pass and time waste for all of us,hence it will be better to play someone new who has the equal right to play for the country again just like all of us so let the new faces be encouraged and say good bye to the old-fatty generation b'coz these are no good for the future of India cricket again b'coz of their presence does not make good for the country world cup prospect; it is better to play the younger ones.

well to be a part of the indian pace attack,that too if you are gonna play a home series,you must swing the ball very much or bowl at 145kmph pace or have too many variation or to be just clever. zaheer belongs to all 4 catagories thats why he is the bowling spearhead but as for ashish nehra and rp singh.i am not sure. you see back in the last tour to england,zaheer and rp troubled the english batsmen with their swing and we won the series but once we got into home comdition with most pitches flat and not assisting bowlers,rp singh faded because he doesnt bowl in 140s,he doesnt have variations nd not much swing available. i dont remeber the last time ashish played a test match.its been a bit too long to recall.though he cant swing it that much,that guy got some serious pace.if i remember correctly,our bowlers started to bowl at 140's after nehra bent his back at the 2003 world cup against england where he got six wicket. so it has to be ashish or some new kid who bowls very quickly
