Munaf Patel called up


I thought that was a good decision by the selection panel. A little harsh for VRV Singh who’s been dropped without being given a chance, but such is the game. Patel had made an irresistible case for his selection, and has been justly rewarded.

Now it will be interesting to see if the team management give him a game. India needs to start playing with five bowlers (with at least three pacemen), moreso now that our wicketkeeper and one of our bowlers (Pathan) are decent bats. Bowlers win Test matches, and virtually depending on two pacemen to take all the wickets in the first innings is not wise.

I find it unlikely that that will happen though, since it means leaving out either Yuvraj Singh or VVS Laxman. What is more likely is Harbhajan or Sreesanth making room for Munaf Patel (that is, if he plays at all).
