Assalam-o-Alaikum. Adeel Naseer from rawalpindi, Pakistan, my opinion for the best bowler is (Lasith Malinga in fast bowling category and for spinners is Chawla) Batting point of view, Ahmad Shehzad could perform well

India has a serious decision to make. The seamers have been attrocious in both the warm up games. Zaheer will be only seamer worth looking for some positves. Kohli can bowl some medium pace to use the new ball. Should India go with 3 spinners + Yuvraj + ZAK? Secondly, Kohli's place in the team must be guaranteed because he is in the ICC rankings too. How can he be dropped? Lastly, India should maintain fitness & avoid injuries. That will be the key to victories. Indian batting is the one that has to click for India to win consistently,/

U ALL DNT WORRY ABUT NEHRA PATHAN N OTHERS. DHONI IS SMART ENOUGH TO CHOOSE THEM N HE HAS PROVED IT IN THE CASE OF CHAWLA. NEHRA IS IMP IN CLOSE MATCHES AS BOTH PATEL N SREESANTH CANT DO THAT. HE IS A GOOD OPTION ALONG WID KHAN WHEN THE OPPOSITE TEAM REQUIRES 25 IN LAST 4 OVERS. RAINA HAS NOT PLAYED ANY GOOD KNOCK IN CRITICAL CONDITIONS. HE PLAYS WELL IF THE SCORE IS 180/3 IN 32 OVERS. KOHLI IS BETTER THAN HIM. BOTH YUVRAJ AND RAINA ARE ASSETS ON SLOW N TURNING TRACKS OF DHAKA/MIRPUR/COLUMBO/MUMBAI.

The best team for India in this world cup.... Sachin, Sehwag, Gambhir, Kohli, Raina, Dhoni, yusuf pathan, Zaheer , Harbhajan ,munaf, Chawla/ Ashwin.

Drop yuvraj and bring raina in his place.......... Raina has the ability to score big and his fielding is the biggest asset for the team. Yuvraj's batting and fielding is not good now a days.....

Ashish Nehra is an excess baggage in this team. He is not fit and he is very expensive as well. We would have been better off with an additional batsman or some other bowler who could bat a bit. I dont see a role for Nehra in this WC at all as the pacers place would be taken by Zak, Sree or Munaf.Even Ishanth would have been a better choice looking at the way Nehra was bowling in the Warm up Matches.

why didn't pathan bowl in two warm up games?

Great 2 c a sizzling win against the kiwis. Best of luck ..INDIA :-)

once ZAK is back in the line up,it will be a different looking indian bowling lineup.

But yes PK would be missed dearly

The only thing that separates India and the world cup is the pressure of the S/F & the Final!
