pathan has performed well in the domestic cricket after his poor perfomance in the recent one dayers..he can again be given a chance in the srilankan series..if he performs well he can be included in the world cup squad..if not then we have to lose one of out best all rounders..the first problem is that he is not consistent and then he was not allowed to play his natural game...he was asked to bat at no.3 and so he has to concentrate in batting and he was constantly asked to increase the pace..these affected his perfomance, now he is back with his normal pace...i beg u please let him continue the same way..

His performance is not up to international standards in the bowling department.He has developed into a batting all rounder.He should not be picked for the world cup for his bowling.He is not taking many wickets and concedes too many runs.He should be dropped from the side. He can play as a batting all rounder but the Indian side has too many specialist batsmen in the team.He should not be taken at this crucial event.He is not an all rounder as per international standards.

I really feel if pathan has to be selected for the world cup it has to be as bowling allrounder since he was always bowlwer who could bat and we have lot of batters one more wouldn't make that much differnce. I feel he has been batting quite well in recent tiems. but had lost form in west indies and south africa. I feel hes hould be given the new ball as he is attacking bowler as his natural inswinger and outswingers esp. when it swung late works best when he is attacking with new ball esp. to right handers. I feel he is capable of doing it and needs to do it matches hoepfully he has regained confidence and form so that he coes back as genuine wicket taker then he surely desges place in world cup as we need a genuinely good allrounder esp. when we take on sides like australia in crunch matches who captialise on any wickness in opp. ranks.
