Why is Harbhajan in the squad?

Is it because he was the default spinner after Anil Kumble?

His bowling in the last 2 years has not been any impressive at all...The figures seem to be better against Sri Lanka and especially in the sub-continent pitches. Otherwise, it is not good at all.

Is it because he is in good terms with the captain MS Dhoni (he is supposed to be a business partner as well)?

Of late, Ravinder Jadeja and sometimes even Yuvraj Singh have bowled better than Bhajji. On spinning pitches, it is not a guarantee that Bhajji will win the match for his team.

Pragyan Ojha, Piyush Chawla need to be given chances very soon. Harbhajan is living on past glory, clearly.

Probably a rest is what is advised for Bhajji - some domestic matches against opposition who play spin well will help his bowling.

How long will the patience of MSD and selectors go on?

Selectors - Play him in the test matches is fine but ODIs - please rest him!!!
