A couch potato's recommendations
Sachin: I wouidn't mind you failing in the final as long as you take us there
Saurav: Silken cover drives, dancing down to off-spinners. An odd failure against Shane Bond is ok.
Dravid: Find the gaps not fielders. Remember against the aussies in the final, Sachin and Saurav are gonna fail. Standup and play the innings of your life in the final
Uthappa: BTW did I spell your name right? Mate, you have got the strokes but remember its a 50 over game not 5
Sehwag: Vote against your inclusion in the 11 each time you are asked to, thats the best you can do for the team right now.
Yuvraj: Clean strikes, impossible chases, breathtaking catching, the odd chinaman..prove your substance even if not in style
Dhoni: Carib grounds are small for you forearms. Remember to take the catches, you are the keeper.
Karthick: tamizhan yendru sollada thalai nimurndhu nillada
Zaheer: You are not a pace bowler. Whenever you get carried away, remember the last world cup when you got carried away from the field as a corpse.
Anil: You are India's best ever bowler and BTW Aravinda D'Silva is not playing this world cup. Wipe the tail off and prevent nasty last over hero all-rounders:)
Pathan: Ask Wasimbhai, Munnabhai, Dawoodbhai for tips, but for god's sake starting swinging the ball better than the bat.
Harbhajan: Band bhaja gore log ka
Agarkar: No longer can you be pardoned as "wicket taking bowler", watchout for the runs you give
Munaf: Sock it in to them and when it comes to 1 run needed off the last ball, find that streaky edge to third man
