As for the rest of then team, Sehwag who should consider himself lucky to be in the team must be given a chance to redeem himself at the top of the order, Gambhir could return to his opening slot, Uthappa could be promoted back to his number 3 position, followed by Rohit Sharma. Lastly, India would do well to revert back to the five bowler combination because ultimately India needs five bowlers including an all-rounder (Irfan Pathan) to be able to win consistently. This means India would do well to rest Sachin, Ganguly, RP Singh, and Zaheer Khan for this game.
Ideal 11 for the last ODI:
Gambhir, Sehwag, Uthappa, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Pathan, Karthik, Sreesanth, Praveen Kumar, Harbhajan Singh.
One thought on “Final ODI: Time to Experiment and Not Indulge in Half-Measures”
Looks like Dhoni reads your blog. Good call on team composition. They should have “rested” Tendulkar as well. Prasad
