In my opinion, one of Ganguly, Tendulkar and Dravid should not be picked for this 20/20 world cup (i would want two, but india wont do it considering that we are more star oriented).
Kaif and Raina are a must for this format. ODI's itself place emphasis on fielding these days. More so for 20/20's where fielding specialists will work well. Also we need to bring back Pathan to get an all rounder. We dont need express pace bowlers. We need bowlers who can bowl line and length, and Pathan would fit in well (he is on the redemption road).
I feel India can try out a new captain for this tournament (though its unlikely). Dravid is not suited for this particular format, and he has become really slow these days. I would spring up a surprise here and give the captaincy for this tournament to Dinesh Karthick. He has been hailed by Chappell as a leadership material, and he was the captain of the winning Tamil Nadu side in the domestic 20/20 championship that was held recently.
If we can do most of this, India can be a major force in this tournament. I am more keen in India getting into the semi finals than the India-Pakistan match. Want India to go a good distance.
My ideal team would be:
Dinesh Karthick (captain)
Dhoni is made Indian Captian, just because he used to play very fast 'LONG AGO'. India can never depend on Dhoni; He plays good innings 1/7 times. Dravid, Sachin & Dada have already quit. So my ideal team would be :
Virendra Sehwag (Captain)
MS Dhoni (Wicket Keeper)
Yuvraj Singh (Vice Captain)
And just :uprayPRAY:upray for INDIA
