England will crush us if we have Ishant and Sreesanth. Sreesanth can produce golden spells, but having both him and Ishant risks an innings in which we have two bowlers bowling absolutely terribly. Ishant has to be replaced by Munaf, imo.

Praveen Kumar is the one I forgot earlier, in England he could be good!

For India will the coming tour be an anticlimax?

I think India could bring

Khan
RP Singh
Patel
Sreesanth
Sharma

then there is Irfan Pathan

RP Singh will never be called up, neither will Pathan. Their time will come again though.

I hope Ishant has some form if we pick him, for the one Sree amazing spell in whole tour, I'd prefer a consistent Ishant throughout.

It will all depend on who does well when we rest Zak in the WI.

And of course this series wont live up to India SA in the winter but it will still be pretty good.

On current form nobody apart from Zaheer deserves to go.

RP has been long forgotten and have become an IPL only product.
Praveen Kumar never plays test cricket. Well he only plays IPL these days.
Munaf might be the second choice.
Sree is too inconsistent and Sharma is just crap.
I hope they recall Pathan

You do realise Pathan hasnt even played a competitive cricket game for over a year! It'd be incredibly stupid to put him in England unless he plays FC before then.

Praveen Kumar averages 23 in FC, he'll be considered this time for sure.

You wouldnt think, based on his time with Warwicks, that hed be much of a test threat over here - however decent a bloke he was.

What is the situation with Sharma?

He had bowled 3 overs for 10 for Deccan in the IPL the other day alongside Steyn...but his last over went for 14.

I think he played a little First class cricket for North Zone but not sure it went that well.

He's only 22, so got to have hope that the IPL is good to him.

Much as Sharma had a crap 18 months following a good start to his test career, intermittently he did show signs that he was capable of bowling at least in the mid 130's kph after spending a good amount of time impersonating Dougie Bollinger in Adelaide after he had hit the wall. As DDB says at 22 his time could well come again. Sree also has had a few spells to suggest he could come good. They will need more than 1 seamer bowling well if they want to threaten England over here.

RP Singh was unbelievable on the last tour to England. Swung it boths ways from over and round the wicket. Only KP managed to master him if I remember correctly. It's a shame his career has gone backwards.

Sreesanth and Sharma are surely nailed on certainties to make the touring party alongside Zaheer? I'd be surprised if Munaf Patel didn't make the squad too leaving potentially one place up for grabs.

He can certainly swing the white ball both ways at will. Can he do the same with the red? If so he looks like he'd do pretty well in English conditions.

Praveen is certainly the second Indian seamer that interests me the most. He lacks any real pace, but has excellent control and can swing the new ball prodigiously both ways, and is a combative character. Has more than a bit of Zaheer Khan about him. 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.

I really hope Ishant comes again. Such a waste otherwise.

Hopefully playing and training with Steyn does him some good, he's been in the press saying this is where he will come back to form but he's shown little so far.

I have my suspicions that Kumar is a tad too slow for test cricket, maybe a threat with the brand new ball. However I've not recalled a bowler of that pace be a real success in recent times, he's still slower than what Asif was last year.
