Now we have a problem with the spinners doing well against England. We got difficult decisions to make. Not forget the players who missed that match. they have won a lot of games for India for their own. It will be difficult decision but we will play with best eleve in the Super Eights. 

It was a difficult decision, we request our senior players to opt rest during the match against England . All of them co-operated and said to me go ahead.

Harbhajan and Piyush Chawla play realy well against England.Rohit Sharma is talented player it is important if guys are responding to give them a few extra games.
