Interesting part is only one fast bowler and 3 spinners and one part timer, Jadeja.
I am still confused whether Jadeja is bowler who can bat a bit or batsmen who can bowl a bit.
Big problem Indian team is facing now in the tests is the IPL !!
It just gave the players to make good money in short time and the playing doesn't require any special cricketing expertise, just hit every ball out of boundary without any technique. There is nothing special about bowlers there as it is just a hard hitting batsman game now.
So our players are just looking for the next IPL edition than the tests and one days these days.
The other sad thing is Dravid,Laxman retirement who were the only players with technique and more to it is the patience required to play a test. The only left over person is Tendulkar and unfortunately he is not able to coup up with the team will which is mostly filled with youngsters without any experience.
So, till the ranji becomes stronger and IPL is stopped we will never have a right team for tests and one days
More to this, the politics from BCCI !! and a useless coach
