Ganguly, gambhir or uthappa with Sachinas opener

Take your pick guys, there are 4 openers selected in this team against West Indies. Also rahul dravid has opened in past year in one dayers. I will always prefer ganguly over uthappa and gambhir as he is an experienced player and who has opened a lot with sachin in the past

i personally would prefer to see saurav ganguly to open the innings with sachin tendulkar. they have a great track record in the past and i think the right and left handed combination also should help, especially against the inexperienced bowling attack of the west indian one day international cricket team. this will also give ganguly the chance to play freely and without any additional pressure of being a few wickets down. he will also be able to attack if he wishes to. gambhir and uthappa are still young and their chances will come. anyways, they are a part of the squad and they can always be tried if ganguly fails in the initial games. yes, i think sachin-saurav opening combo would be great to watch after a very long while.
