My team would be...Sehwag, Dhawan, Pujara, Sachin, Kohli, Dhoni, Jadeja, Ishant, Dinda, Kumar/Ashwin(depends on pitch condition), Harbhajan....12th man Rahane Sujit K Ghosh

Edward Jones would be my pick. His experience would be invaluable for a relatively inexperienced Indian middle order

What an absurd question. Jadeja finally got his chance as an allrounder and a 5th bowler, which India needs. In his first test, he did very well with the ball and only got to bat ONCE in the test. Surely one would give him at least another two test matches before deciding his future? All of Rahane's international outings have been a failure and Vijay has comprehsenively failed in tests, don't just show his vs Australia record, which is AT HOME.
