can we have a kamraj plan for Indian cricket?
all 3 of sachin, dravid, laxman should have gracefully retired from tests once india reached number 1. That would have been some sort of glory. instead they chose to continue and are now unable to reconcile to the fact that they are in a position to be dropped and not go at the time of their choice. Sachin should have announced his retirement from international cricket after the world cup win which would have been fitting. instead shamelessly he is trying to cash in on the 100th 100 which is of no use or significance now when india has been thrashed and humiliated so badly abroad.
Yes! Sehwag should be the one that should be kept out of the Test Team first.
In the last 18 innnings only once India had got a 50 + runs partnership from the opening pair, with Sehwag & Gambhir being the pair for 8 times.
Sehwag should be rested, and other player should be brought in to test. later on remove Laxman, the backbone so far in the middle order and bring Sehwag in, if he proves he has got the patience and knows the way to play Test Cricket, or else provide the chance to other player.
One should remember that, it is Sehwag who plays the blinder and not Laxman who plays good test cricket.
Dada was forced to Quit and the Media had a role in it as well.Today the same is being done with VVS as well.
As much as VVS deserves to be dropped the same must be applied to Viru and Gambhir.
To be honest Tendulkar and Dravid have been tolerable ,but VVS has been pathetic.
There are 3 liabilities in the Indian team VVS,Viru and Gambhir.Just drop them.
This is what happens when you have a quota system and further "Quota within Quota' in composition of selection committee. Instead of Gas bag like Shrikant, bring somebody like Mohinder and Dilip.
Get back Vengsarkar! He knew hpw to select...
We'll come to the players in a bit. First can we please be finally rid of blowhards like Mr. Srikkanth? And off with the rest of the morons in BCCI too. Ohh wait, they are self-appointed aren't they? So if we don't elect them, we can't get rid of them either. I see.....
THE WHOLE THING STINKS ...if you get the ..err....drift.
