even still there is a bit of talk that sehwag should drop down the order or even go play fc domestic as a middle order and comeback if he scores runs. india do need to transition through past sehwag and tendulkar but you have to think with dravid going not that long ago and laxman having just gone should sehwag and tendulkar stay around even if performance doesn't warrant it? the kids need guidance. i think keep tendulkar and either sehwag goes or he plays at #6 that way they can blood and groom another young opener (rahane or mukund). as usual though, india is spoilt for batting talent, chand is coming through as another good opener, gambhir still has some years left in him then there is tiwary, sharma, reddy and a few other middle order talents.
