India need to make changes to their side for the St Lucia Test, says Sambit Bal, Cricinfo's editor, and Ramesh Powar would be a better inclusion than Harbhajan Singh. Listen to him explaining why to Amit Varma.

Bal also says that both teams are not just equally matched, but they're equally mediocre. Barring Anil Kumble, their bowling attacks are equivalent to those of first-class sides, and their batting is equally good, though Mahendra Singh Dhoni at No. 7 gives India the edge. Bal also explains why Irfan Pathan will never be another Wasim Akram, and should be groomed as a No. 6 batsman and a fifth bowler.
