India should retain players like yusuf pathan , yuvraj , kohli for the world cup. The way pathan handled kiwis was amazing.

surely these players are match winners and can single handedly take the match away from the opposition. i thought yuvi was the one who has not played upto his talent, lets hope his good performance in the next match. yesteday yusuf pathan was really superb. hit the ball out of the stadium, he hits with massive power, no doubt player like him should be always in the team. brilliant knock from yusuf.

It was an amazing innings from Patan. We all knoe his strength to hit the bowl out of the ground,and he proved it once again. he managed the pressure well.

Yeah the Yousuf Pathan's inning against New-Zealand was really awesome. And he handled the pressure very well. When rain stopped the match, Indians were 15 runs behind the D/L score and I guess first target when Yousuf came on creaze after break must be to score fast and get to the safe mark. And that was the time when S Tiwari has just entered. So pressure and expectations were tremendous on the Yousuf. He batted like a matured batsman and scored without playing loose shots. And he deserved the every word media had written in his praise. He was supported well by other batsman. He also took 3 wickets. Anyways, the question again comes if Yousuf Pathan, Kohli has to come in team who should be rested. I think its good sign that India is facing this crisis. India has very good bench strength, as Krish said. Good to see competition. Hope India will emerge as a World Cup winner.

Yusuf Pathan is a great player when he is in his groove. I hope he maintains his form for the world cup. When he is on song no baller can stop him and no target is great enough for the side. I wish him all the best in the world cup.

BCCI selection committee will get scared for ignoring the above mentioned players in the squad of upcoming World Cup. There were no question of Yuvraj's class but his inconsistency these days are our headache and Kohli has proved himself whenver he has got opportunity. And Yusuf Pathan was always a big hitter but he has proved his matuerity in his last innings. There is no scope of dropping these three players. They are the key players of the middle order of the Indian team

I think the most suitable all-rounder available for team India at present is none other than Yusuf Pathan.It also became crystal clear with yesterday's innings against Kiwis."Massive....".Ther is no other word from me for his innings which led India to the highest chasing victory in that venue.Yesterday Yusuf Pathan was very controlled at the beginning of his innings.But as the rain struck and interrupted the play India was lacking of the runs which should be there according to D/L .But soon afetr the rain Pathan changed the "batting gear" with a six in the first ball itself.Also congratulations for scoring his maiden test century which was right at the time.

Yusuf Pathan really has improved his ability to deal with short balls and tht worked big time for him yesterday. He surely deserves a place in world cup squad as an allrounder but needs more game batting in more upper order.

He has secured his place in world cup team with this innings, I enjoyed his innings very much. He showed what he can do at lower oder, if he plays 50% of this intention India's hope to win world cup certainly boost up.

The only word I could say to describe that innings is awesome. Eventually he scored 70 runs in just 14 balls(7*4 ,7*6). I was elated .I think every Indian enjoyed the innings more than any thing else.Every one will remember this innings for many many years. Thank you. Have a nice day.
