    John Wright hints at exit

    http://www.cricketweb.net/article.ph...&NewsIDAuto=85

    Definitely, one of the greatest coaches India's ever had. Would be difficult to find an equivalent replacement, if he's seriously considering not extending his contract.

    If he goes in May that's a shame, really.
    Unfinished work, IMO.
    The chemistry of Kiwi-Indian has worked a treat.
    Personally I think John Bracewell would make a much better coach of India than of New Zealand.

    Especially since Bracewell and New Zealand coaches in general give a lot of emphasis to team work, good fielding, fitness and bowling.

    India's always been good at batting, but we need a coach who can really 'coach' the next generation of fast bowlers. The talent is there right now with Irfan Pathan, Joginder Sharma, Gagandeep Singh and so on, but we need people who are qualified and know what their talking about.

    If John Wright leaves, it will be unfinished business as Richard said.

    how about a swap - Wright for NZL & Bracewell for IND??????

    that way Braces gets his spin to play with, and NZL gets Wright's attitude re batting performances................I don't think he'd have much chop / tolerance on the NZL penchant for batting collapses...............

    I wouldn't mind seeing that actually. If even sadly John has to depart and go home (which is completely understandable by the way), I wouldn't mind the coaches swapping. I can see Bracewell improving India's bowling outfit.

    It'll be sad to see John go though.

    It will be sad to see him go, but the guy might be tired of all the travelling and might wanna spend some time with his family, without having to think about cricket.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Bring in Steven Waugh, a champion player like Waugh would transform India into a force that might match Aus team

    What a pity he's Australian, and 40.

    This is coming from an Indian fan, but mate, India will take an awful long time to become a force that matches Australia.

    To think India will become the best ever side in the world is laughable.

    The politics, the Indian culture, the facilities of Indian Cricket and the socio-cultural status compared with Australia is like comparing chalk and cheese.

    Steve Waugh, Geoff Marsh, John Buchanan, bring in anyone, they might boost India's ranking to second or third, but India cannot become the best team in the world with so many things going against it.

    But not because he was a champion player.

    I agree with you two, a swap would quite conceivably work very well for both teams.
    It's remarkable, really - there's speculation Duncan Fletcher could be leaving after this Ashes (and personally I hope and pray he won't); that John Buchanan could leave Australia at the same time; and of course Ray Jennings' South African contract is only a short-term one.
    There's been enough speculation to last a lifetime about certain of those being approached for possible vacant jobs left by others.
    I'd be amazing if Tom Moody or Stephen Waugh did get one of the jobs - suddenly we might see Duncan Fletcher of South Africa, Tom Moody of Australia, John Buchanan of England, John Wright of New Zealand and John Bracewell of India!!!!!!
    I doubt it (and like I say, with Duncan Fletcher I really hope against it) but wouldn't that be unprecedented - a total reshuffle of World coaches!!!
