Yeah you are right. In the 83 world cup squad we have 4 genuine all rounder but in this team we dont have a single all rounder. people are saying Pathan is an all rounder but i dont think so coz he cant do the double role in a single match. If we consider pathan as a all rounder then why we should not count Sehwag, Yuvrag, Sachin, Dhoni

ya its sad that our team lacks a quality all rounder........... dont know whos at fault the selecters, coach or who coz i believe that india is full of talent........... pathan has a fairchance of turning into a gud all rounder......

well actually i feel the indian team has lots of players who are a bit selfish, in the sense who strive for personal records.. as such they dont concentrate on their all round performance .. i mean they r keen on either battin or bowlin so that they can go for record breakin.. i thnk pathan has chances of becomin a gud all rounder though..

Yes vinayak.Its been crucial issue over the past few years that we should have a good allrounder in the team.But say it coincidence or badluck that After Kapildev India are unable to find a good allrounder.It hurts when we have to choose from the option wheter to play 7 batsmen,4 bowlers or to play with 5 bowlers and 6 batsmen.
