    The ODI team that is playing WI is likely to be and should be retained for the SA tour with space for one more fast bowler(Dhawal Kulkarni if he is out of injury) if the squad is made into 16. The team for ODIs: Dhoni, Kohli, Dhawan, Rohit, Yuvraj, Raina, Rayudu, Ashwin, Jadeja, B.Kumar, Shami, Mohit, Unadkat, Mishra, Vinay and Dhawal

    For the Tests in place of Sachin and Amit Mishra, Gambhir/Baba Aparajith should be picked as an additional batsman and Ravindra Jadeja as additional spinnner and additional fast bowler in Zaheer Khan or Mohit Sharma/Unadkat/Dhawal Kulkarni (depending on whether the selectors want to try out the inexperienced bowlers only or to go in with experience) may also be brought in to complete the squad of 16. The team for Tests: Dhoni, Kohli, Dhawan, Vijay, Pujara, Rohit, Rahane, Ashwin, B.Kumar, Shami, Ojha, Jadeja, Gambhir/B.Aparajith, Ishant, Umesh, Zaheer/Mohit/Unadkat/Dhawal

    Vijay is also under tremendous form...failure against windies and now a duck and 38 in a flat track.....better to go with gambhir played in a good sporty pitch..roshanhara

    @ Aashiq.kb what do you mean sporting pitches... @ Athul Raju rightly said he is a good batsman of spin bowling as well as fast bowling he just needed some confidence which he was lacking ..

    RISHI DHAWAN should be given chance by selectors. he is far more better then VINAY KUMAR & ISHANT SHARMA in all three departments of the games. He is the leading wicket taker in this season. He can be better option in south africa if TEAM INDIA playes with 3 fasters.

    Hope the selectors aren't considering to include Gambhir for the SA tour. I haven't seen his knock (153) but I honestly feel that his style of batting is only suited for Indian pitches which are tailor-made for batsmen & spin bowlers. He looks pathetic when the ball starts to swing, seam & bounce!! In simple terms--Gambhir doesn't have it in him to play for India on sporting pitches!
