    Changes that HAVE to be made in the Indian team?

    What changes do you think the Indian team REALLY needs? For me the first would be to drop Ganguly. Rahul Dravid should take his place and captain and I think someone like Kumble should be made vice captain. Next I am not saying drop Tendulkar but take him out of a couple of games just to give the others guys a try. Sachin should still play...but miss a couple of games here and there to let the other people show off what they got. Next get rid of Ghambir and bring Dinesh Kartik in and give him a go. I saw him play against Australia and I think he got what it takes to make a good player. Give Pathan all the games when he is fit. Murali Kartik playing instead of Pathan is just stupid. At the rate Pathan is going right now, he could very will become vice captain in the next 5-6 years and maybe captain the Indian cricket team after that. I also think Kaif should be get more test games. In ODI he comes in late and all he has is like 10 overs to play and thats why he slogs. But in test matches he would have more time to play and have a better chance of getting a good score.

    Gambhi hasn't had enough chances. He should stay on and anyway, Karthick also hasn't yet proven himself as a keeper, making him open would be too much responsibility.

    Applies for Laxman and Dravid too, one of the three must be rested for one of those Bangla/Zimbo tours or exhibition ODI series.

    Ganguly had been out of form for to long. Captain or not, he has to be dropped.

    Gotta agree with Nikhil, specially on the Kaif, Pathan and Karthik issues.

    Keeping Pathan out of the team for Murali Kartik is ridiculous.

    And yeah, I think Kaif needs to play more test cricket - ideally at Ganguly's expense.
    Making him the vice captain would also be a good idea -- I'v seen him captain Indian junior sides and he looked very impressive.

    I am amazed that I am saying this, but I think Sourav needs to be given a break. He seems to uptight. Perhaps, he should not go to Bangladesh. He should take a break, recharge his batteries and come back as the Sourav of the early 2004, not the Sourav that we are seeing now.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    More than changers in the team, changes in THE WAY THEY PLAY are important, and the coach has an important role here.

    Yeah,got to agree with the man who shares my name...especially on Ganguly...dont drop him...KICK HIM hard enough out of the team so tht while he is out,he can try and remember how good he used to be,and come back anytime as he has all the backing from the greatest cricket power in India,Jagmohan Dalmiya...seems a paradox,coz the reason he still is in the team is because of Dalmiya...What say u...

    For me it'd have to be stop over-reacting to being beaten by the better side.

    I'd think that the reason why a team is beaten by a better side is that the opponent is a better side!
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
