India team needed an attacking batsman.As now viru form is sliding and sachin is ageing .except dhoni there is no attacking batsman who will put pressure on bowler unlike peterson in england. indian batsman are more defence oriented

There are many attacking batsman in Indian team but the thing is that they need to perform. If they can't perform then what's the point. We got all sorts of talent but they just let us down. So I think that we need new people who will actually deliver something to the team.

I dont think that we really need any attcking batsman because now if we look at our present indian team then we have SEHWAG DHONI SACHINE TENDULAKAR DRAVID GANGULI these are those batsman which can attck if situation demand so presently i dont think we need any attcking batsman

attacking batasmen is not needed as India is having sehwag and dhoni, what Indian player need is consistency in their game and that can be done by doing more practice on fast pitches Indian players are good at home because there are slow pitches but when they are playing outside india they mostly failsdue to lack of practice on fast pitches, Indian team need to work hard, India is already having hitters like Sehwag and dhoni what all they need is consistency in their game. I was very happy to know when there was a news that the player would be paid according to their performances and their grade would also be decided by taking performance as the base. Like irfan has been sent back from SA because he is not able to perform, so this kinds of techniques should be incorporated to make the player perform

Sehvag is such an attacking batsman but he has gone to bottom of his form and everybody including himself have forgotten that he was a attacking batsman once.now,some new attacking bats man may come and again he will be out of touch.Instead of that what we need is a consistent batsman rather than hitter who remains for a year or so and vanishes.
