    His attitude happened. And his last 10 innings were 9, 19, 40, 0, 0, 6, 18, 0, 27, 28.

    Compare with his first 10 being 16, 18*, 224, 227, 125, 4, 120, 5, 82, 57.

    I quote Cricinfo.

    His footwork was dazzling against the spinners - he once smashed Shane Warne for 22 runs in an over - but he often got himself into a tangle against the short ball, and his flash to gully soon became a trademark. Kambli's problems were compounded by indiscipline and an obsession with the width of his bat-handle, which had nine grips on at one time. He made as many as nine comebacks into the one-day team, but played his last Test in 1995 before he had turned 24.

    Most people have a poorer 2nd season so that doesn't really indicate why someone with probably the best record ever for 7 tests failed to make it (Note: he has the most runs of anyone betwen 5-10 innings, yes better than Bradman, Sobers & Weekes who were leading the pack)

    Adharcric or SS would probably be best qualified to answer that.

    I will say the Indian selectors have a strange way of operating.

    I seem to remember that Kambli and Tendulkar were schoolboy prodigies together (highest ever cricket partnership or something)????

    In this case, the selectors were probably right. He had huge problems against certain types of bowling and his attitude of never listening to anyone and disobeying the team management wasn't helping.

    He was the highest run scorer in cricket history over his first 10 innings and he still finished his career with an average of 54.20... why wouldn't he have a chip on his shoulder...

    Did Sachin Tendular? Did Rahul Dravid? Did VVS Laxman? Did Saurav Ganguly (to such a large extent)? Did Mohammad Azharruddin? Did Navjot Sidhu?

    No.

    And that's why they all got in ahead of him.

    I thought it was impossible to have such a large chip on your shoulder, as Ganguly did.

    Nah, by all accounts Kambli's was far, far more significant.

    Otherwise Ganguly'd not have had the success he has. It's also easy to omit (and you'd only have been 3 when he burst onto the Test scene ) the fact that with Ganguly it's very much an acquired thing, particularly when he ascended to the captaincy in 2000. Kambli always had it.

    Sorry, but none of the above ever achieved the same success as Kambli over their first 7 tests..... again, why wouldn't he feel superior, he was 21 with the best Test record ever! .......we should be so lucky......
