Now dat all da batsmen are putting up decent performances, a tough ask for Dhoni arises as to make which batsman to sit out once Sachin returns bac to the SA series... Here r da possibilities.. 1. Sehwag - No way wit his incredible form and da destructive kinda batting approach. 2. Gambhir - Cant say..He is having a dream run in tests as well as one-days. 3. Kohli - Came in as replacement for Sachin; but having performed very well in the triangular series, can he be asked to sit out again?? 4. Yuvraj - vital player of da team; but not in such a gud form compared to others. 5. Dhoni - Captain; no way 6. Raina - NO i guess...he is such a gr8 finisher..! 7. Jadeja - all-rounder..!! 8. I cant type-in da final option..!!! Sachin to sit-out.!! NO WAY.... Wats ur opinion??

i will preafer a team with 4 bowlers (jadeja ,bajji,2 pacers). so all problems solved . i am sure that even if india plays 11 bowlers the opponent will score runs(no doubt on it). so what is the need for bowlers. these 4 bowlers will bowl 40 over remaining overs will be done by yuvi ,sewag ,kohli. if needed raina & sachin will bowl. so what will you say!!!

I think you are confusing between One day and test match squad. because both are totally differ at this time. Kohli, Raina, jadeja are not placed in Test match. Test match need to play at least 5 days so every batsman need to stay for a long time but Raina, kohli, jadeja are very young all are striking batsman. So no more doubt about the three persons will out from the squad and Sachin, VVS Laxman and another one will again place in Indian Cricket squad for the further Test trophy!

i think you're right sachin will sit in next series also,because i don't feel if sachin is there,it's helpful for India the batting side is OK now,but in next series the bowling side should change because,the bowling was so poor and worst,so better harbajan will sit out from the squad.so this is my opinion.

If bajji sits out, bowling department will be much worse..! In batting, dats not da case. If Sachin sits out, dere's a strong reserve bench for batting. V dont have adequate good bowlers..V can experiment only if dere's a good replacement for da out-going candiadate.. I think Dhoni shud believe in Tyagi and giv him much more chances..

Inspite of absence of master-blaster ,Indian cricket team is well balanced. If any of top 5 five batsmen except Dhoni, is replaced by the little master, then the team will be perfectly balanced. Sachin's presence in the team will definitely keep up the spirits of all the team-mates.

MAy be we can still keep sachin and Kohli in the final 15 men squad... they might keep a cycle changing kohli and jadeja and Raina... when Sachin comes back it will be his permanent spot.. coming to the bowling option they can have Tyagi, Zaheer, Bajji, Dinda.. sreeshant and nehra should sit out.. Then too a question arises... Dinesh Karthik.?????

I think its time that Yuvraj is shown the door..see Ishant sharma was in peak form last year and now he has been out of form even though he is one of the premium bowlers of the country..i think that dropping yuvraj might make him to do better in the next series..by that time another person in the team would be out of form..so that player would be dropped and yuvraj would be inside the team..i think this would be the best option for now without making sachin to sit out.. Happy Mylotting..

Yes it will be a tough ask to replace a player for giving a place to Sachin.but I do think that Dhoni will have to let kohli out and place in sachin in the squad as all others have proved their places.there is one more place open which is in place of Raina as he did'nt play to his potential until last match,but he is a great hitter of the bowl so nothing can be taken away from him.It will be a tough ask for Dhona.

Well its going to be a tough task for Dhoni to decide who will sit out once Sachin is back in for the South African series. Kohli got his chances and he grabbed it with both hands. He scored two great hundreads under pressure and a few fifties as well, unfortunately he was out cheaply in the final. It would be an injustice to leave him out of the next series. So he has to be in. There is no way in the world you can leave Sehwag out of the next series, especially against an attack like South Africas. He can destroy any bowling line up on his day He is as importanat as Tendulkar so Dhoni will not even dream about leaving him out. Raina was a strong candidate to be left out, but he scored a good ton under pressure. and he has done well with his limited opportunities. The only thing they can really do is give Gambhir a rest to charge up before another long season.

Really a tough one this time as the players are playing really good. Thouogh there are players like Yuvraj who had not performed atall in the whole series, but it's difficult to remove him. Also the way Kohli and Raina had performed it is hard to replece them. Hence I think Jedeja may give place to Sachin. Also to clarify, Sachin was not kept out of the team, he willingly kept himself out for rest. Hence there is no way to stop him to enter the playing eleven.
