    batting has been awful since WC.

    if batting previously (like 2-4 yrs ago) was 4 out of 5 stars, it is now 2.5 stars

    if bowling previously was 2.5 stars out of 5, then it is now 1.5 to 2 stars.

    essentially back then, india would win games on back of great batting displays (sehwag, gambhir, laxman, and tendulkar were excelling together) instead of great bowling. bowlers would just do enough to win after the batsmen had put a big total on the board.

    now that the batting's **** now, team's been found out both home and away.

    if india drew back the series, i get the feeling that the players and the management would go on about how they are still a strong side etc and deny that they have been uncommitted and just dreadful in every aspect since the world cup compared to their opponents, thereby resulting in no serious changes being made to the side.

    Then 2-3 months later, australia 2-0 up...

    Look, for all the problems you have, I really don't see anything that couldn't be solved by putting Rahul in charge. What a guy.

    Yeah, him and Ganguly are speaking an awful lot of sense. Guess they don't need the hassle of being a selector/coach though and all the hate that would go with it if things didn't work out. Just been a very good interview with Ganguly on Sky.

    Jadeja! Great pick. Haters gonna hate based on limited overs failures but his skills translate so much better to FC cricket.

    Dropping Zaheer but not Sharma is so weird though.

    Zaheer is a ballsy move. Might be it for him.

    Yeah, look I wub Zak, but he's moving towards being a pastiche of his former self currently. Tubby 34 year old seamers with what would optimistically be called a chequered injury history have a limited shelf life.

    rahane would probably still play ahead of jadeja, but two triples in a season bodes well for the latter

    unless they decide to drop some other ****

    Dinda's been in the squad the whole time, so he'll probably play. I think Awana would be a better pick though; much higher ceiling as a player and is having a killer Ranji season, especially the last few weeks.

    Gotta say, there's no way Sharma or Dinda are better than Zaheer at the moment, IMO. He may be a shadow of his former self but Zaheer's shadow has always been a better bowler than those two. I could understand if they dropped Sharma as well or Yadav was fit but as it stands I think it's a bit of a knee-jerk.
