Robin Uthappa doesn't seem to have the temperament
of a Test opener. Shikhar Dhawan seems a good
prospect, but the selectors should wait for a couple
of years before ***ing him in Tests. For the MO
spots, I would prefer to try out batsmen like Rohit
Sharma and Manoj Tewari.

I never rated him very high but he should now be

Bhajji could possibly make a comeback after Kumble
retires from Test cricket. Powar and Harbhajan would
then be fighting for the lone spinner's spot (in seaming
conditions overseas). IMO, Harbhajan at his best has
a definite edge over Powar.
