But, Harbhajan Singh is not straightaway going to walk into the Indian side with his bowling credentials, as spinners such as Ashwin and Ojha have been carrying the Indian mantle for some time now. Looking at the current situation, it seems that the player is the third spinner of the current line up. Unless, India decides to go with three spinners, Harbhajan may only be a bench warmer. Ashwin's performance in recent matches has made him India's premier spinner, the title which was held by Bhajji for many years. He needs to fight back to get into the starting 11.
With Murli Vijay's inclusion, the selectors have sent a warning to the Indian opening pair of Sehwag and Gambhir, who have looked below par in the matches that they have played during the year. Muri Vijay has been an impressive player in the domestic circuit, hence he has got a fair call from the Indian selectors.
This is the best possible squad that the selectors could have come up with. Though, one may ask about the extra spinner that has been included in the squad, but all in all, the squad looks strong to start the series on a high by winning the first Test match at Ahmedabad.
