Dropping Sreesanth makes no sense

The Indian team under Dravid-Chappell appears to have decided on an experimentation strategy. ie., try out the talent at hand and eventually pick the best for the world cup. In theory, this is most welcome and admirable. But how do you explain the continued mysterious use of Agarkar in the team while Sreesanth a hot recent talent is relegated to the bench after one match? We all know what Agarkar is capable off. The Indian batting is currently at its best. So India doesn’t really depend on Agarkar’s batting skills. Then why bother with him?

Experiment with Sreesanth instead. Dropping him after 5 overs in the first ODI makes no sense whatsoever. I guess we have another product of the infamous quota system (e.g., Tinu Yohanan) in the making?
