    Well Dravid certainly played that series because I remember him being promoted to three and being trapped lbw instantly by Lee in this match, but yes, somehow I'd forgotten that Dhoni had already take the ODI captaincy by then.

    Dravid stepped down after the England tour, of course.

    Getting the ODI series in India and the CB Series mixed up.

    Thought you were referring to the CB series, hence my comment about Dravid not playing.

    I think Dravid played the first few games of that series, and was dropped for the last couple of games.

    No no, meant the ODI leg of the tour for which the Test leg is taking place as of this post.

    Yeah, got that from the scorecard you linked.

    Just when you referred to the "Australia tour" I assumed you meant India's last tour of Australia.

    He's not the best we've had, but nor is he the worst imo.

    "Tour by Australia" would probably have been a less confusing description (and the post now reads such a thing).

    Ah, so he was. Then it's fair to say Kumble's not had a single half-decent series as captain.

    Will be interesting to see who are the top captains from this generation. Captains these days are so often the teams best player or right at the top anyway.

    NZ = Vettori
    Eng = KP
    Aus= Ponting
    SA= Smith
    SL= Jayawardene
    Bang= Ashraful

    How will history look at these guys legacies? Never been too fond of Smith as captain, KP and Vettori will be looking to make their mark in coming years. Ashraful seems kind of dire as captain, and Jayawardene in my books is the top established captain.

    By the way, how many people think it might be a good idea for Hussey to take over the number three spot and for Ponting to come in at number four ?

    Hmm. They've both done exceedingly well at 3 and 4 respectively for a long time. Also Hussey is the stronger against the Indian spinners, and whoever comes in at 4 will have to start their innings against them.

    It could work. Why exactly would you try it though?

    I was not thinking of this series but more long term really. Although in India he seems to be more roubled by the pacers than spinners

    Its just a thought. Nothing concrete. I would like to see if Hussey at number three will give us some big double hundreds for one. Also, maybe, Australia today needs less of strokeplay and more solidity at number three with the openers not the force they were.

    As I said, just a thought

    Hmm, i don't think the trouble with pace is a long-term thing. Sharma just seems to pull one out of the bag to Ponting every time.

    Would be very interesting indeed to see how things changed, but i think it's an unnecessary risk ITBT.
