Include Uthappa

Its obvious that Sachin and Saurav are struggling to impose themselves in the opening overs.
They start by playing cautiously and then try to open out only to perish.
They seem incapable of hitting the first ball for a six.
To do that, I suggest that we include Uthappa.
Uthappa seems a maverick and seems to be playing cricket for the joy of it.
Lets have Karthick joining him at the top with everyone else following in the batting order.
Obviously, this means Powar has to sit out.

Uthappa may yet play today, but I fear DK might be sitting out today.

As you say, India lacks the momentum at the top. I really wonder why.

DK replacing ST or SG on the top ? Are you all right ? Sorry if i sound rude, but thats ridiculous. DK is a novice in ODIs and he deserves a kick on his backside to be effective.

He might be ok in Tests, but in ODIs as opener, a big no. We have 2 of the best openers in ODI history in our team and then 2 more are waiting in the bench, with one other makeshift opener in Dravid also available.

Smell a coffee sir.

My suggestion was in the hope that young free spirits would give a much better start than these old warhorses.

BTW, tried following you to your blog, unfortunately, I was denied access to your profile.
