Partly yes. They should have selected 7 batsmen and 3 pacemen in the team rather than 6 batsmen and 4 pacers. In India it is very unlikely that 3 pacers play in a team of 11. So 2 would have played and 1 would be in buffer. Also, Saha was there as reserve-keeper, but i guess Dinesh Karthik is better. He has also proved himself.

Cricket players, at recent times, are more concentrating on IPL like cash bash crickets........They play BCCI games as just for getting good value at IPL, ICL etc. I can remember my childhood, at Eden garden(Kolkatta) or Feroz Shah Kotla (delhi) where Viv.Richards or Imran khan who use to practice upto 10.30 or 11.00 am at morning whereas all other players were practicing maximum upto 9.30 am. THAT DEDICATION IS NOT THERE AT INDIAN TEAM.....ALL ARE BUSY IN MAKING QUICK MONEY THRU ADVERTISEMENT, TV PROGRAM HOSTING....and other glamour activities..... At australia, south africa..... most of the players are at least spending 4-5 hours everyday at practice..... NO BODY TO BE BLAMED.....IT IS THE ATTITUDE OF INDIVIDUAL PLAYER, POLITICS AT BCCI ....to be blamed... Why BCCI selection committee is full of un-professional players ( full of political leaders) ? .......We all know the reason..... ganda hai par dhanda hai yeh.....

Selectors have to choose from a basket of players whose past performances were far better than the rest. So its not the selectors fault.

Selectors are party to it. They selected 16 players out of 100 key players and left to captain to decide the playing 11 , the major task was performed by them , Mohinder Amarnath \"Jimmy\"once called the \"Bunch of Jokers\"and even today if you look at the selection committee its the same, do they have any reasons for excluding Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Citteswar Pujara, Abhishekh Nayyar, Ravider Jadeja, Manish Pandey, Mohammed Kaif, Wassem Jaffer etc.... Every player are vurnerable to certain team and stands up to certain team , means raises his performances, we do not have right blend of players , even we have not identified perfect replacement of Saurav Ganguli (Yuvraj is a stop gap arrangement, neither he has sound technique nor patience to play test cricket) let alone thinking about Rahul Dravid & Laxma...It was the great opportunity in their absence to expose our younger player under the experience hands like Sachin Tendulkar....For sure Sele ...more

They selected a right team but some of the senior players like Gautam Gambhir and Dhoni failed to perform.
