Indian Cricket Team to the British Isles

The Indian team to Ireland and England was announced today. The overall team balance looks very nice. Sreeshanth and Zaheer spearhead the pace bowling and should be able to exploit the English conditions very well. Zaheer especially is expected to do well given his county experience. Sehwag’s dropping is a welcome change and Dinesh Karthik’s inclusion is a strong indication that strong domestic performance will be amply rewarded. Our strong batting needs no introduction and hope they actually deliver this time around. Kumble would be counted upon for his experience and given that Monty Panesar did very well against the windies, we can expect some good leg breaking from kumble.

Hope this team does the country proud and reconnect with the disenchanted fans.

Test squad: Rahul Dravid (captain), Wasim Jaffer, Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Vangipurappu Laxman, Mahendra Dhoni, Sourav Ganguly, Yuvraj Singh, Dinesh Karthik, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Zaheer Khan, Anil Kumble, Ramesh Powar, Rudra Pratap Singh, Ranadeb Bose and Ishant Sharma.

One-day squad: Rahul Dravid (captain), Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Zaheer Khan, Rudra Pratap Singh, Piyush Chawla, Ramesh Powar, Ajit Agarkar and Rohit Sharma.
