Why Sreesanth? He is too good a Test bowler to be left out of such a crucial tour. There is no disagreeing that he has failed miserably in recent games in the IPL and the World Cup, but that is no measure of what he is capable of and has achieved in Test cricket.
Why Harbhajan? Simply because there is no other spinner in Indian domestic circuit who is half good as him in terms of committment. He may be lacking the sting that he earlier used to have but then it is just a matter of time before he gathers himself up and starts delivering the good.
Now that we have made the choice let us see what the selectors do when they pick up the squad for the tour to England. There squad, we assume would be like this:
Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, M S Dhoni, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh, Ishant Sharma, S Sreesanth, Praveen Kumar, Parthiv Patel, Amit Mishra, Virat Kohli
