Openers Selection Dilemma

The Indian Cricket team management today gave a hint that Wassim Jaffer won't be opening for India. Sehwag, Karthik and Irfan Pathan are being considered for the top 2 slots. Sehwag and Irfan showed immense talent and responsibility in Perth Test. Sehwag thrashed the Aussies bowling attack during the initial overs and Pathan played some impeccable shots all around the ground, later Pathan was also awarded the man of the match award. But selecting Karthik will be the brightest choice because he has the experience to bat in the upper order and also he contributes himself completely during fielding. Selection of openers is very important as they lay the initial foundation for a massive score.
