"No Dhoni ? Seriously.. No Dhoni?"

Wadekar also feels that though places must not be taken for granted, Virender Sehwag, if back in form, could just make the difference.

"India require a player like Sehwag who can get you those quick starts. A blazing start lays the perfect foundation for players like Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar," he added.

He said either Mahendra Singh Dhoni or Dinesh Karthik should be included, since Dravid can take up wicketkeeping duties in case of an emergency.

"I would certainly prefer Karthik, since, I think, he is a good wicketkeeper and is in good batting form."

Ajit Wadekar has served Indian Cricket well in various capacities and his name will feature prominently in the chapters of Indian Cricket History. But when he suggests that he might not pick Dhoni in his WC squad of 15, you can't help but wonder if all is well with the 66 year old's brain cells. You shouldn't be entitled to say foolish things just because you celebrate your birthday on April Fools' Day.

Karthick has done enough this season to deserve a spot as a reserve batsman. He made good use of the limited opportunities that came his way. Raina and Kaif didn't do the same and that is the sole reason why they are currently not in the side. And as far as reserve keepers go, I really don't see Dravid keeping wickets again. If for some reason both Dhoni and Karthick are indisposed, young Uthappa could do the job.

Dhoni is probably the 3rd person I write down for the Indian team. When I read the original article, I couldn't help thinking what agenda this man had.
