Perth game should include new talent regardless of the warm up results

India team has elected to bat first at the first tour game against Western Australia at Perth.

Looking at the team composition the new selections Barinder Sran, Manish Pandey, Rishi Dhawan and Gurkeerat Mann all are in the playing eleven. That is the right kind of exposure the new talent needs. 

Though the first ODI is four days away I would still like to declare my selection for the first ODI.

I would definitely like to see all the new selections in the first match at Perth,  so that there is no pressure on them to play to their natural abilities. 

Though some of them have good experience with the IPL like Manish Pandey and Rishi Dhawan. Playing away from home and in Australian conditions like WACA is going to be a test.

I would like to see them play early games and hope for the best.

Rishi Dhawan in place of Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey in place of Rohit Sharma, Gurkeerat Singh in place of Ajinkya Rahane and Barinder Sran should be there in the first match itself I think.

Murali Vijay had a good stint Down Under last summer, would've liked to see him in the ODI format too.

One or two or all is my selection for first game at Perth. My opinion is for new players in the starting games.

Team management is perfectly placed to make the final call. Final call is theirs. All the best team India.
