    It's a big mess atm, you have 3 guys at the wrong end of 30, the guys on the right side of 30 are struggling with form. There is only one youngster in the batting lineup, there needs to be at least 2 and 3 would be the upper limit. Laxman is definitely gone and the guy that joins him looks like it would be one of the openers.

    Arguably the biggest problem here (possibly already mentioned) is that Dhoni has suggested he will retire from one format at the end of 2013, and one would have to assume it will be tests. Who takes over as captain?

    Sehwag? Too old.
    Gambhir? Possibly?
    Dravid? Too old/retired
    Tendulkar? Too old/retired
    VVS? Retired
    Kohli? Maybe?

    So unless it's Gambhir/Kohli or one of the bowlers, they are going to have to bring somebody in and fast-track them to be captain. It seems as though India have no long-term plans whatsoever.

    Well Gambhir's done a bit of captaincy for India already, so I assume he'll be taking over the reigns in whichever format Dhoni gives away.

    I don't find much wrong when Srikkanth says they picked the best possible side to tour Australia. Unlike England, there are no excuses of injury and stuff here. Everyone was ready and prepared and we were not that far away from taking the first test. But from that fourth inning, everything just went downhill. There are no easy answers here. I would love to write more on this, perhaps a seperate thread soon.. There is a LOT that is wrong with Indian cricket but the biggest thing is, no one in any kind of authority is willing to admit it. That is just plain scary.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    IIRC the selection panel in India only picks the touring squad, not the XI for each test?

    That hypothetical Sachin fanboy is not that hypothetical. After the Perth embarrasment, one of my friends put a status on facebook lamenting how bad we have been on this tour... Guess the first comment.. "God did his job. Averaged 50+. Thank God, it is the rest that have been bad." Hmmmm, are we thanking God now that Sachin did well even though we lost? It is just so so silly to see such posts from people you think, would know better.
