I wish Dravid were more of a wicket-keeper. :-( But he has only
kept in an exhibition match, as a "one time" thing.
If Jadeja is not going to bowl, then we must consider him as a
specialist batsman. And, by most yardsticks, Kambli, Sidhu and
Dravid are better than him at that...The last 2 are quite brilliant
Also, just as the batsmen (Jadeja, Ganguly, SRT) must bowl more, the
bowlers (Kumble, Srinath, Chauhan) should contribute more with the bat.
Currently, it seems the bowlers don't get to bat much at nets.
