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 think Ganguly is the best opener with Sachin. Since they both make the best opening in the world and have proved themselves.

yes i think these players should get a chance to open ...india has tried everything so there is no harm in giving them chance..and its better that we find a good opening pair if india wants to win this world cup

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.

Tendulkar & ganguly -  I love this Pair
i think ganguly should open the innings with achin. he is well experienced & once he sticks then he will make a good score. it will make him to get more confidence & it will make us remember the old pair which was speading fire on the feild

ganguly and sachin hold the record for scoring most runs as openers together, they should be tried again if they succedd it will be boom-boom time and kaif is not in team

Sachin and Ganguly should be the openers and Uthappa should be in the down order in place of dhoni and dhoni should be 2 down followed by yuvraj and kaif

My choice is that, let ganguly and sachin open the innings. Thats a good pair and they had rocked several times in opening.
