MS Dhoni
Karun Nair
Risbah Pant
Sanju Samson


Want to put Rana in there now too.

Suspect we may see a Raina-Rana switcheroo in the India team soon enough.

Are we done with the Yuvi vanity exercise yet?

Sporadic with the bat, poor in the field and a host of young talent ready to take his place. The clock must be ticking.

top order looks ok for tests with either Vijay or Dhawan to open with Rahul, followed by Chet, Kohli and Rahane.

the big question is depth - in spinning conditions Jadeja and Ashwin add depth to the batting, but can we really pick them both in SA, Aus, Eng or NZ? Probably means we pick Ashwin and then we have 3 out of Bhuvi, Shami, Umesh and Ishant so does that mean we have a 6th batter (Rohit?) or do we stick with Pandya as an all-rounder?
