i think he will b seen in the playing 11 as there none other in the squad who is in a gr8 form..!! Even if there is sum1 2 replace him still Uthappa will b given a chance 2 play in the 1st two games.. If he fails then they wud think of replacing him!!!
i agree ananth, but who ll u replace robin with..?? can i have domestic 7 players of urs..!! remember Kallis ll b seen in the playing 11 for sure in the beginning of the series as Roos and KP ll b missing. Kallis can manage 4 overs… !!
In indian conditions, you need two spinners for sure.. kumble and Van der Merwe are the automatic selection. Pitches in india are batting friendly, that why need a lot of variations and bowling options. I went for Praveen, steryn (sumtime he is very erratic), vinay kumar and ofcourse Kallis..
my ream will be:
Van der Merwe/Virat Kohli (depending upon the situation)
White Virat Kohli/Van der Merwe (depending upon the situation)
Shreevats Goswami (wk)
Steyn (esp how he bowled against india in nagpur!!!!)
I feel vijayMallayaboys (Can I call you VMb or something?) is right. I think Robby is an amazingly talented but considering his form, it is difficult to say. He is just a knock away from form, so I’d back him up, but wonder what the think tank thinks about this….
yaa Robin is a rare TAlent!! wen he is in FORM no1 can beat him!! its just an amazing sight to watch him play!! n this time in the IPL he will play at his home ground with support from every1 which is sure to be his main DRIVING force!! he is sure to ROCK!! thus he must play in the 11!!!
