At last Mr srikkanth &co have opened their eyes.This Indian team is young ,vibrant and full of talent.Injuries are nature 's answer to the excess of cricket being played these days.Why is it the selectors can't think of anything fresh ? why do they wait for injuries to happen ? why can't they groom youngsters ? I THINK ROTATION IS THE ONLY ANSWER .Results are not always important unless it is an important tournament like ''world cup'.
thanks for giving us the team on sports vale mr Brooks.
