hi friends. the countdown for world cup has already started and team india in test matches are doing well. but in ODI,they have to go either by plan A or Plan B. Plan A: use the last few ODIs before world cup to give the players who are certain to make into the world cup squad some match practice and not make them to continue warming the bench and carrying bootles. plan B: time is still there so lets try out more new talents like rahane before world cup and dont give your playing XI any chance to play as a full strength team before world cup. seriously,india have tried out 9 fast bowlers on the last 7 months and guess who they are sticking to? zak,ashish and praveen. why wasting the time give chance to new talents? they will have plenty of time to prove their talents after the world.

ya, why we are not giving chance to the players who are certain to take part in world cup. and what is the use in experimenting new legs very near to the worldcup? dont know what is the selectors and team management trying to prove. anyway lets hope for some good performance.

Both your Plans have points to prove. But I believe India is only lacking in the bowling department that why we are experimenting and giving everyone a fair chance to prove themselves. We are yet to find a couple of consistent wicket taking fast bowlers. Zaheer Khan the fast bowler and Harbhajan Singh the spinner are the only two bowler from India who are in the top 10 ICC ranking. The next one in the ranking is far below. So searching and experimenting is still on and let's hope we should find them soon and this time India should bring home the world cup.

Well, i think india should stick to plan A. Give match practice to all their main players before the world cup. Because i don't thing that these is any sense in giving opportunities to the youngsters just before worldcup as they are not going to try any of them at the world cup anyway. Thanks for your response.
