no qualms there, could easily replace abul i agree. whether he should be there for sunny i guess is personal opinion. i like to back players unless they have a horror run, i think if you drop someone just because they aren't in top form then it's going to be tough for them to find form because they won't be in the team long enough. an out of form sunny still took 3 wickets in the first innings of the warm-up game, so if that's out of form then i'd still take that guy into my playing XI with the chance that' he'd come into form. if a player is having a real horror run and never taking wickets, or barely taking wickets then fair enough to be dropped, especially if someone else (or more) is knocking down the door. but if they've had a really strong run in their career to date and are still nabbing a few wickets when out of form then i think they deserve to hold their place and try to re-find form.
