    Ganguly's Suspension - Great news!

    I was looking forward to India dropping Ganguly,but it seemed impossible because of all the politics in the India board and the Dalmiya power,but Lloyd has done a great job by suspending him.Now atleast Ganguly will not again take undue credit for India's win over SAF in the upcoming test series(which seems probable)...Ganguly has done too much injustice to players like Agarkar,Murali Karthik,Kumble...If he believes so much that a player shouldn't be dropped by taking into account just one-off bad performances,then why does he keep dropping Agarkar and keep people like Zaheer,Kaif,Parthiv all the time in the eleven?Clear Double-Standards.
    Also Saurav holds a personal grudge against Murali Karthik when the latter performed a small jig after dismissing him in a domestic match.Even some commentator (think Sanjay Manjrekar)said Karthik performs much better under Rahul and looks under pressure when under Ganguly.
    And lastly it goes without saying his batting sucks nowadays,even I can take his wicket bowling short and quick...

    He does misjudge some players, but he does judge others like Yuvraj, Kaif, Sehwag, Harbhajan, Zaheer, Pathan well, doesn't he? Rahul is not a good captain for India in the long term, he cannot really pull the team together like Sourav and I am sure Sourav thinks differently about Kartik nowadays. As a matter of fact, I think I have seen a change in Sourav's thinking about Kartik ever since last season's TVS One Day Series. Chopra still has time to make amends, but should try to convert his starts and the only thing wrong about Sourav's handling of Agarkar was the number of opportunities he got.



    BTW, before we all get carried away, the BCCI have appealed against the decision as we all saw the amount of time consumed because of the dew and injuries to Butt (3 or 4 times), Dravid etc. Plus, the noisy crowd meant that it took longer for both captains to cry out to their fielders and get their attentions while making field changes. I think a severe warning and a big fine should have done the job as I don't think this was deliberate on the part of Sourav. Mind you, I have seen him slow down games deliberately before, but this was not one of those occasions, I am positive about that.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Wouldn't a fine suffice for slow over rate?

    If someone needs to be sent for Rehab then it is Mcgrath, Warnie and Company.

    Ganguly is doing just fine. Btw the ban is suspended.

    It was Ganguly's fault that Salman was fasting and was cramping due to that, infact Ganguly should have instructed his bowlers to bowl without drying the ball.
