    A very predictable Indian squad for first test against Australia

    With no intention of rocking the boat, for e.g. by agreeing with Ricky Ponting's claim that Ganguly was going to be left out, the new bunch of selectors have included Amit Mishra and S Badrinath in the 15-man squad for the first two tests against Australia.

    It was always on the cards that Ganguly would be included. I never understood the fuss. A new selection committee was highly unlikely to take a bold decision like leaving Ganguly out, especially when Australia was the opposition.

    There're a few surprising aspects of the squad though.PS: Over an hour after the squad was announced, the BCCI website has no such update.

    Update: The BCCI website now has a press release.

    actually it is quite unpredictable squad..Ganguly was not sure that he will be inside for the test matches.

    buzzz: What if Sehwag or Gambhir gets injured 1 hr before the toss? Sending Dravid out to open would be a pathetic solution.

    dheeruyadav: I have no idea why you thought Ganguly would have been a surprise selection. I didn't expect anything different from a new committee, despite him not having been selected for the Irani trophy. The surprise selection was Amit Mishra ahead of Piyush Chawla or Pragyan Ojha.
