Should Harbhajan be picked for the final test against Australia?

I think he should. And Wasim Jaffer is the one who should be making his way. Whatever runs India has scored in the series so far, they have all come without any substantial contribution from Jaffer. So dropping a batsman wont make nmuch of a difference. Further, Harbhajan's inclusion will strengthen India's bowling attack and variety. In the end, I guess the pitch will play a huge role. There's talk of some grass being on the pitch. India is contemplating Dinesh Karthik as a possible replacement as well. Another thing which they need to keep in mind is that if Harbhajan does come into the squad it will mean Dravid'll have to open. Is that gamble worth it? What do you all think?

Harbhajan should be played in all matches which India plays.

The entire selection procedure should change..India have to include both young and experienced players... Young players are the most plus point of any team...so we have to build a team with young talents..For this we have to programme deep searches through out the country... But At the same time there is an important role for experienced veteran stars...They give the inpiration and experience to the young also... So we have to made a team with giving importance to this facts...

Dinesh Karthik should be included in the final 11.Wasim Jaffer is going through a poor form & he must be dropped.India can play with 2 seamers & 2 spinners.It may be the best selection.So Ishant may not get a chance.

Hello,try32ends! it is no use having two specialist spinners in the 4th test.the present squad is quite capable of delivering the goods.of course Jaffer has so far failed to make any impact on the Australians,and for this reason if the captain so feels he may opt for Karthik who will open the innings in place of Jaffer.i think the second spinner's role can best be assigned to Sehwag and Sachin who have proved fruitful in the past.so it is better to take a spealist opener is important.thank you.
