Part time options?

A rather curious omission has been the part-timers -- RD just switched JPY back on; this plus the field setting clearly indicates the Indian intent to slow the game down and force the Lankans to make the play.
Given that, there's a case to be made, really, for getting Viru Sehwag and possibly Yuvraj to bowl quick two, three over spells here; both bowl tight and full and slow, in keeping with this gameplan; five, six overs from them at this point could help India keep overs of frontline bowlers spare, in case any one of them gets tonked in a late assault in the slog phase.

  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Sehwag start off as an offie who could bat?

    I always felt that there was a case for mixing things up during the middle overs and swapping part-timers around so that the batsmen don't get a chance to get used to any one.

  • Prem:
    My take is...keep the wickets intact and start going ballistic in the slog overs(42-50).A score of 250 odd is a strong possibility.And,if India loses a quick wickets,we are asking for it.
    Also,why isnt SRT given bowling??Even he could be a welcome change--and he can very well deliver.
