It is a balanced side with a lot of youngsters full of promise .India will miss praveen kumar but it is a wonderful opportunity for the likes of u mesh yadav, varun Aaron, Rahul Sharma.The bowling will be spearheaded by Ishant sharma .The bowling may look weak on paper but considering the opponents it good chance to try youngsters ,let's hope they come good.Ms Dhoni could have been rested because he has been playing non stop , he is human too how long can he go.?
