There are a number of young lads with their hammers and chisels out. Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Robin Uthappa... And by the looks of it, a few old hands as well. Dilip Vengsarkar, Venkatapathy Raju, Ranjib Biswal, Sanjay Jagdale and Bhupinder Singh Snr.
So while Rahul is out of the first 2 one-dayers against Pakistan, he should be on the flight to Australia. The boys certainly aren't yet in a league that can negotiate Brett Lee and company over anything more than 20 overs. In fact, you just might see Dravid ushered back into the team against Pakistan. Akthar (I hear he's back) and the rest of that talented bunch of cherry handlers could very quickly have the selectors ducking for cover behind the Wall.
