And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
I definitely think this is a good time to drop Tendulkar (we are due to announce the team for next 2 tests, aren't we?). The younger batsmen have responded well, and in home matches, now is the time to allow them to build some confidence.
RIP Phil Hughes. Forever 63*
Something else that hasn't been mentioned is that these guys have been playing cricket professionally for more than half their lives - they don't know anything else. I don't see why they would retire if they still have a passion and love of cricket, which I am sure they do.
Cannot understand people talking up Hughes as a replacement for Ponting, where would he bat? Surely Khawaja is next in line. Quiney would have to go too, surely. I think Punter is safe for now, but i guess it depends when Watson comes back. We cant have 4 openers (Warner, Cowan, Watson, Hughes, 5 if you include Khawaja who has opened most of his life) in the team.
hughes would go in at 3. out of all the possible problems with hughes, the shift to 3 from opening isn't one of them

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
I actually want sachin to play his 200 test.. he is like 8 tests away.. I don't think we wil see anybody else playing that many tests anyway at least in our life time..
plus he is a better player than ponting..he has been better player throughout his career.

The end is nigh, one feels. Another cheap dismissal for Tendulkar.
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
Tendulkar can't play SLA
So if you replace Yuvraj with Rahane, who do you think should replace Sachin? I'm a Rohit fan, but are you telling me he is a better bet to win India the next test? (since that is what you are getting at, you're not talking building the future, you're talking win the next test). Same goes for Mukund, do you think he is more likely to win the next test than Sachin?
The fact you think Sachin should have been dropped in 06 and have refused to admit you were wrong is ridiculous frankly.
As for dropping - if you don't perform, you need to be dropped. If you score runs again, you should be picked again! It's really that simple. Frankly, he was a passenger in the side for far too long and other players could have done better. If he had found his form again in FC cricket, I'd have no problem with immediately putting him into the team again. I don't see why anything except performance should be the criteria for selection. Obviously, you don't want to drop someone after a couple Test matches, but I don't believe in sacrificing the next Test match in order to potentially win one a year from now.
