That's a very strong squad! Bhuvneshwar Kumar really struggled yesterday, he will be a big miss for India. Do you think that Kuldeep Yadav will play alongside Ashwin?

I guess it will all depend on the pitch conditions. During this time of the year in England, pitches tend to be drier as we had seen during the ODI series. Kuldeep, given the way he performed in both the series may be in the playing eleven straightaway in the first test match. But that being said,if England provide a green seaming wicket Kuldeep's chances of playing nullifies. Ashwin is a sure starter because of his recent county stint and the fact that he can contribute with the bat as well.
