Team selection is one issue that always sparks off discussion. On Wednesday, India named their team for the Test matches that will begin in West Indies in early June. Ramesh Powar and Suresh Raina have been picked after their impressive performances in the one-day internationals. VRV Singh, the Punjab fast bowler, and Dinesh Karthik, the Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper, have also been included in the squad.
