Asia Cup series 2008: Yusuf and Ojha have been called for Asia Cup

Tri-Nation ODI series finished few days ago where Pakistan team got the trophy. Now, cricket fans are eyeing to Asia cup begin where both teams will face each other once again. For the first time Pakistan will be the host of Asia Cup series. India should look for revenge for their defeat against Pakistan team in tri-series final match. A bunch of youngsters have been inclusion in India team where Yusuf Pathan and Pragyan Ojha are the shiniest future stars in the 15-member squad. Their excellent performance in the inaugural IPL helped them to get inclusion in the national side. Indian batting trio Sachin-Sourav-Dravid, who seemed Indian batting pillar, is missing for their poor performance and lack of fitness. Baroda all rounder Yusuf Pathan has already made his debut in the limited over match where as Hyderabad left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha is waiting to make his debut for Indian cricket team. I hope these two can fill up the lack of senior players in the team. Five more changes have been banned by selectors. They are banned Harbhajan Singh, Dinesh Kaarthick, Munaf Patel and Manoj Tiwary have been left out.

MS Dhoni’s India consists of young players. This team already got a record breaking win against arch-rival Pakistan team and proved that lack of senior players will not affect to consistence their victory.
