@Diabloo well perth is supposed to be a fast pitch so woud suggest more number of pacers and also people who get the bounce off the pitch which is why am suggesting sree.
One more point is regarding aggression we would need a bhajji or sree to do it and get aussies on the back foot

My 11th player would be:
11. Sreesanth/Ishant/Pankaj/VRV (bowl) (whose so ever bowling style suits Perth pitch)

Harbhajan's aggression can make the Aussies run for cover and put them on back foot, but the problem is we need somebody who can be aggressive with their bowling, not with their talking

If Indians fail in Perth, nobody in India will also come to their support. This has to be made clear to them. I'am sure Ponting and their set of jokers will put up a strong fight after whatever has happened during past few days.

On a different note, tell me something - do you guys think Billy Bowden is blemish free? He has his fair share of howlers as well!

I say get Pankaj Singh in the team and unleash him on the Aussies. Ask him to bowl bodyline and fasssst and staright. and keep at it the whole match.

Yup exactly my first thoughts. Billy has quite a few howlers to his name. Just a marginally better replacement I feel.

Good point. I clearly remember that incident and its really shameful to see such indiscrimination mooted out towards the Asian countries.

Coming back to cricket will someone tell the team management to drop Yuvi and take Veeru or Irfan in his place? For the wonderful scores Yuvi has managed being "IN FORM" I think Pathan would have scored more in the two tests as well as supported the bowlers.

Well the selectors want our team to be in news always so Yuvi provides all those eggs and loose change on field and he bowls maidens off it.

yuvi just blew up the last chance he had...if karthik can play well in next 2 tests, he might take yuvi's place in one-days as well.

its time yuvi thought more about his cricket than deepika's and kim's.

Btw, cricinfo reporting pawar said "tour is not in peril even if harbhajan is not cleared"....dont know if cricinfo miunderstood him or some horse-trading has taken place.

anyways, dont expect harbhajan to be cleared as it will be a damnation of procter...

Yuvi is more interested in the events off field nowadays. He is not concentrating in his infield activities. With Veeru cmong back into form, I think the Perth Test will be more watchful and wonderful. Time to make the way to Veeru.

i cannot understand we bowled 17 overs expecting the below par ACT XI to chase 315. Unbelievably stupid, whys couldn't we declare earlier ?

Hey buddy, this match was for practice and not to go for kill or rest peacefully in the hotel room. Those 17 overs gave our bowlers some match practice.

You can see the difference in the Perth test.

Note: Pankaj, VRV Singh were unimpressive in the 1st innings of this match but they seem to be getting into the groove in 2nd innings.
