Sanjay I agree that both Aaron and Yadav are great talents for the future however I think India needs to manage these players and ensure that they don't go the way of past promises like Munaf Patel and RP Singh, who through overuse burned out and lost pace. I think that we need to cultivate these bowlers and let them develop and a reasonable pace, especially Aaron who has a pretty average first class bowler (I think he averages above 40) would suffer if he was thrown into the international Test scene. At the same time I am disappointed by the Indian teams exclusion of Praveen Kumar who was by far the best Indian bowler in England, I don't think he deserves to be left out. What do you think?
