The 17-member Indian squad for the tour of
Australia has no Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh or Suresh Raina. Instead,
the selectors have decided to play it safe and named a squad on
expected lines.


MS Dhoni leads the team which has Gautam Gambhir
and Virender Sehwag as the two openers and Ajinkya Rahane as the back-up
opening batsman. Rahane has been awarded for some consistent Ranji
form, to go with some big runs in the ODIs.

Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman form
the crux of the middle-order with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma expected
to fight it out for the number six position. Yuvraj and Raina miss out
here after having got their share of chances.


Dhoni will be the wicket-keeper and Wriddhiman Saha will back him up as the other stumper.

The bowling line-up will see Ishant Sharma lead the
pace attack if Zaheer Khan does not recover from his injury quickly
enough. Praveen Kumar and one of Umesh Yadav or Varun Aaron should get
the third bowler’s spot.


R Ashwin will be the frontline off-spinner and
having shown his credentials with the bat after he got a century against
the West Indies, he should bat at the number eight position. Pragyan
Ojha will be the other spinner in the squad.

A very good selection for the tour. But for me, there is the disappointing news of the illness of Zaheer Khan. May he recover fast, and be included in the Australia Tour.
