4 - Ranatunga and Lehmann

There's obviously a connection there. India _SHOULD_ have picked Powar!

Oh hell yeah..... it was a 9 wicket win....

jagadish.... india have picked Ganguly .... yet another cricketer in the grand tradition of assertive southpaws....

In terms of fitness, the three are comparable too... :)

The last question - Jason Gillespie most probably. Not sure if Wasim averaged under twenty.
