Indian Squad, against South Africa

BCCI selection commission has declared 14 members squad for the upcoming test series between India and South Africa in the Indian home ground. On Monday, they decided that the squad is for the first two tests of the three-match series. The series will start form 26 March in Chennai and the second test on 3 April on Ahmedabad.

Before the test two counties is mentally strong because India played a mind blowing cricket against Australia and South Africa also showed a strong performances against Bangladesh both ODI and Test. Mentionable, Indian performances in the Commonwealth Bank tri-nation series was so aggressive. Although the some wrong decision through India form the victory of test series.

The declared squad is looking good but I am confused about why Zaheer Khan is not on the in the squad. Here are three spinners and three pacer although Irfan Pathan is considered as a little bit all-rounder.

Squad: Wasim Jaffer, Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganguly, Vangipurappu Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Irfan Pathan, Anil Kumble (captain), Harbhajan Singh, Murali Kartik, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Rudra Pratap Singh.
