The Selectors have picked many players for the various upcoming Series.  On the one hand it is heartening to see the depth of talent available, and also to see that the BCCI is providing great certainty by picking the various squads so early.  But as the selection of FORTY odd players for the various series in England last summer demonstrated...just picking a lot of talent... but having poor planning in scheduling warm up games and also being a bit too rigid in later selection means that even with a potential bench of FORTY plus India still came out on the short end in both the ODIs and Tests... only managing to win the T20I series. The same mistake must not be repeated.  In a late breaking news it is now learned that the selectors have added Kedar Jadhav to the squad for the last 2 ODIs versus West Indies.  I guess his loud squawking about his being left out had the desired effect... though to be honest why he was not included in the squad in the first place defied logic. Also, a bit sad to see that Varun Aaron has not found a place in any of the squads... He did a stellar job for Jharkhand who reached the semi-finals of the Hazare Trophy, and it would have been useful to have a bowler with serious pace.(150kmph+) available for Australia in case the pace bowling needed to be beefed up.
