The new looking indian squad for the upcomming test series against Srilanka announced. The squad consist of following players..... MS Dhoni (c/wk) Virender Sehwag (vc) Rahul Dravid Gautam Gambhir Harbhajan Singh Zaheer Khan VVS Laxman Amit Mishra Pragyan Ojha Suresh Raina Wriddhiman Saha(wk) Ishant Sharma Sreesanth Sachin Tendulkar Murali Vijay Yuvraj Singh Raina was a good pick to the test squad after the consistant perfomance in limited over cricket.He really desreved the place. Sreesanth and Ishant made their comeback to the squad after a long time,they have not made any good perfomance in recent cricket.then on what basis they were selected? But its not a very poor selection also as these players are capable of taking wickets even though they gives a lot of runs. Why Saha selected for the test squad.this is the poor selection in the squad. Dinesh karthik is far better than Saha,he has experience also. So what do you feel about the new test squad????

Well Saha will be touring Sri Lanka by seeing all the places there, he will not get chance at all unless Dhoni want to take more rest by not playing one test match. His selection is utter waste may be he had given good bribe to selectors or his board. Whatever, he is hopeless player and what the team is expecting from I do not understand. Neither Sreeshant nor Ishant can do any wonders in the bowling department, both can do only one thing is prove to the world that their selection into team is not worthless. Remain team is fine, lets us see what will happen, Will Dhoni use all the places or not is something which I would like to see.

ya exactly. saha is there only to have a pleasure trip. and will be only used to supply drinks and bats to the players in the field. and sreeshanth and ishanth both are similar type bowlers and selectors should not have picked these two together.

None of these 3 nor M Viay deserve a place in Indian team against them Rohit sharma, cheteshwar pujara,virat kohli, parthiv patel and robin uthapa should have been picked for bowlers why not pick freshers when guys like shreeshanth and Ishant sharma going for unnecessary runs at least it will give new player confidence to pay in international cricket . They should have tried youngsters in this series as the future series against New Zealand and Australia are not going to be easy and will not be worthy to try new players against stronger opposition.

ya i missed murali vijay but i dont think he will get a chance in playing XI. but virat kholi would have been a better option than him.

I'm not tell that it is very poor selection also not a good one there are few guys who doesn't place in the test squad as you have said saha is in the team yeah! saha and sreesanth might be a not a good choice they haven't perform a good innings in last few months hope they will in srilanka tour Ishant is good can perform better. One thing which furious me alot why they are ignoring the manish the guy who superbly played for RCB and Robin Uttapha seems that they are envy of someone in BCCI that's why they are ignoring not included in WCT20, ZIMBABWE TOUR and this tour also and same with dinesh karthik they are doing same mistake as they send the fool player in zimbabwe and the result we know shameful defeat from zimbabwe twice.

ya this team is not bad but not that much good. robin uthappa is always missed. even raina has not got chances in test, so why should we say that? lets hope that this team will display some good performance.

I think they have retained the team based on the past few test series rather than any latter performances. Even then I am surprised that Saha makes the team. I think the poor guy was played in one match as a batsmen and failed miserably. But still I agree Kartik is better choice than him as the keeper. There rest of the team seems ok to me for the job at hand. Cheers! Ram
