Is it good or bad for Indian cricket?

Last time, Badrinath played very well and helped India win the first match against SL. Later India went on to win the series. This time around he is not in the team. To add to this, even Shewag was rested for the first ODI. The same is the case with Vijay whom even Sachin, Boycott, Border, and many others appreciated for his technique. But today he does not find a place in the eleven. Does these things not affect the growth of the youngsters? Is it good to give a youngster a few ODIs and then drop even if they have talent?

It may not be that much bad for indian cricket as this has been happening for a long time as our team gives many chances to those who underperform and if a new player performs well he will not be there in next series and the same happened with murali karthik.Team shouldnot discourage those players as they lose their confidence.

Ya. You are right. But there are lots of youngsters coming in. There is no time to give more chances for a single person. Ishant sharma was also a new one, but he found a place for himself in the cricket. Each one of them have less time to prove. Because winning each match becomes necessary. Also, international pressure also building up. India is in race to No.1 position. At this time we cannot take risk by giving more chances to a single person.

Well who Badrinath? For ya kind information he has not got the technique required to survive in the international level. I think he was really lucky to get a call to the Indian side just coz' of Srikkanth in the helm. I think Vijay deserved another go but I think he is injured right now.
