Jaddu gets to play against England.. again

Ajay Jadeja, the Rajasthan Ranji skipper has been named the captain of the Rajasthan Cricket Association President's XI to play against England in a warm-up game before the ODI series. His last match against England was in the '99 world-cup in which he helped India win with a crucial cameo of 39 (off 30). Flintoff is the only English survivor from that game.

RCA President's XI
Ajay Jadeja (capt), Gagan Khoda, Gautam Gambhir, Venugopal Rao, Suresh Raina, Parthiv Patel (wk), Vikram Rajvir Singh, Rudra Pratap Singh, Ramesh Powar, Rohit Sharma, Piyush Chawla, Vidyut Sivaramakrishnan, Pankaj Singh, Sanjay Gill, Dishant Yagnik (wk), Jaidev Shah, Vikrant Yadav.

There are some interesting names in the squad. For some reason, 17 players (understably, a few too many from Rajasthan) have been named. There are quite a few with international experience. Gambhir, Rao, Raina, Powar and RP Singh are in the ODI squad selected to play against England and would want to treat this as an opportunity to impress the team management for a place in the final XI. Jadeja and Khoda would want to show that they are still good enough against quality opposition. VRV Singh has made it twice into the Indian dressing room in recent months without getting a game and would be keen on proving a point or two. Piyush and Rohit, the highly talented under-19 world cup stars would be hoping to get a hit against an opposition like this. Parthiv is the main wicket-keeper for this game. Rajasthan's Dishant Yagnik who was in the news recently for scoring a last ball six off Ganguly's bowling in the Deodhar Trophy is the second keeper (why 2 keepers?). Tamil Nadu's Vidyut seems to have somehow learnt how to get into these "President" squads. Hope he makes use of opportunities like these. The rest of them are fillers from Rajasthan and other Central Zone squads.
