Well it is a tough choice as Uthappa is the man in smashing form who deserves to open on current form with sourav. But team management is banking on sehwag's experience and his past record and it is more like taking a gamble on sehwag if it comes off great and if it fails there are others to do the job. Besides if sehwag is to be in the playing eleven he is most effective as opener as he likes to hit boundaries which he can do in powerplays. I feel both uthappa & kartik deserve to be in the team but sehwag inclusion means one of them will not play which is bad.

i think sehwag will be the best...Coz he is a regular opener for indian team.....For uthappa i would say that, he is a good opener but problem with him is that he can't capitalise on his inning compare to sehwag... And I think india should not do any experiment in this worldcup..Coz we saw all the outcomes, when they had experimented with the positions(batsman) ....

well i think that sehwag should be given chance in first two matches and utthapa should come one down. reason for this opinion is that he got experience onhis back and he has the capacity to win matches alone and in case if he doesnt get going by the time it comes to big matches, i mean by the super 8 stage we can switch to utthapa. i think i have writen in proper english. hmmmm

well it's the opening stand that decide the base of a good score as they ly the foundation............ sehwag's bad form has really harmed india and if uthappa is doing this job well,then he deserves to open with ganguly..................... sehwag has been given many chances and if this continues then i believe he should be replaced by some other player.......... so at this time uthappa is the better option 2 open with ganguly..........
