The top 30

Pure Batsmen: Dravid, Kaif, Laxman, Rao, Uthappa, Gambhir, Badrinath, Rohit

Batsmen who can spin the ball: Sehwag, Sachin, Yuvraj, Raina, Mongia, TP Singh

Batsmen who can seam the ball: Sourav

Spinners: Harbhajan, Powar, Kumble, Chawla

Wicket-keepers:
Dhoni, Karthik, Parthiv

Seamers:
Irfan, Agarkar, Sreesanth, Munaf, RP Singh, Zaheer, SS Paul, VRV

The classification above might suggest Sourav belongs to a rare breed - a frontline batsman who can bowl useful seamers. Unfortunately for him, Irfan Pathan is now slowly fitting into that role.

About the uncapped players, Rohit Sharma is the most promising of the lot. For me, he is sort of the right-handed version of Yuvraj. TP Singh has had a good season in the shorter version of the game (runs in the Ranji ODI, Deodhar and the Top-End Series) and deservedly gets a mention in the country's top 30. He did get a few wickets bowling slow left-arm orthodox in the Top-End Series, but he is essentially a hard-hitting batsman who can bowl 2-3 containing overs. Badrinath has been in the top 30-40 for a while, but hasn't really done anything extraordinary of late to merit a place in the top 20. Piyush did well in the Top-End Series and is getting better by the day, but he might have to wait a while for his turn.

how many good all rounder developed by india, as they have developed two good wicketkeeper batman because kiran more was selector then, selectors dont know the worth of all rounder. A genuine all rounder is more important than a best batsman or bowler in team.
Here r some imprtant players who should be in team right now

Yashpal singh (services) averaging more than 60 in domestic cricket.

inclusion of new under-19 players in the world cup squad is very sad because they have not proved themselve atleast players should be tested two three domestic season before inclusion in internation team. no selection criteria there, selectors should not go for the young age they should go for good performances, they should learn from australian selector, in australia they are giving chances to hussy at 30, Hodge at 32. the player who proved them over 10 year those should be given chances. In india yashpal singh is proven player, pankaj dharmani is proven, Reetinder sodhi is now experienced all rounder but who cares selctor want under -19 players
