Saurav Ganguly

It is sad the current captain of Indian cricket team took the easy way out by keeping his former captain out of the one day team ! It is unfortunate one of the most successful one player and the most successful Indian captain, is being dumped like that. I have never been an ardent fan of Saurav, preferring the classy VVS, aggressive Sehwag and idealism personified Sachin. But I do not approve how we treat our old heroes, how we treat our sportsmen and how we treat a human being. Unfortunately, our team seem to have played a catalytic role in forging a strong bond among the opponents ! Woolmer, incidentally was one of the contenders for the post of coach. Greg, true to his style, managed to elbow him out of the reckoning. India's loss is definitely Pakistan's gain. A word of advise for Rahul, very soon he too would at a similar position, unwanted and untouchable !

Indian team manage to pull of a win in the last test, against West Indies ! after getting thrashed 4-1, this win would not qualify to a 'consolation win' ! But then, the Indian-cricket-lover is most optimistic... looking forward to better things in future :)
