Though whether he has mastery of reverse swing like Zaheer (which is what makes him such a fine test bowler) I am unsure as I have only ever witnessed him in the shorter formats.

Sreesanth, Ishant, and RP Singh are all bad bowlers IMO, and have no future in international cricket.
Sree has a future whether he's good enough or not.

Ishant is 22, big statement to write him off already IMO, he does average 29 in his last 5 tests which isnt bad.

I'd play PK ahead of both in England though just cos he can swing the ball, cant see the selectors taking to that view though cos he's injury prone.

Dravid on his and Sachin's return to Australia to lose 4-0.
