    Can the world press do everyone a favour by not interviewing Arthur or, if they do, tell him to shut the **** up!

    He is part of a selection committee that has picked a terrible squad and the wrong team for every match

    He is a coach whose players have technical and tactical deficiencies

    He is a manager that has perfected the art of mismanagement

    In short, unless the world wants to hear how not to do it, please ignore him

    Arthur is seriously a worthless coach. There is a reason SA got rid of this clown.

    Australia has meagre chance this ashes but with arthur at the helm they have no chance.

    Mismanagement to the core.

    Chopping and changing squad members. Destroying confidence of those trying to get into the team. Picking the wrong squad. Discplinary for some pie in the sky homework

    Graeme smith must be laughing his head off

    Does Smith even know who he is?

    The draw and NOT having Australia get even a sniff of a win was obviously on Dhoni's mind a lot more than a win.

    clarke is clueless he believed aussies could take 10 wickets in 30 odd overs, that run chase should have been much tougher for india if australia employed negative tactics

    He had no choice. 2 down so going for a win was the only option. No point going from the draw from the outset just to lose the series 2-1 at best.


    Overall. How many overs were lost for the match?

    Truth is Sachin has been on the wane for a long time - if he can't get runs against NZ, England and Australia at home - how's he gonna get them away against South Africa ?

    India are better off with Sachin retiring at the end of the Delhi test - you're almost certainly gonna lose in SA with or without Sachin. I'd rather it be without and blood a younger guy who you know will use that experience to be a better player in the future.

    That's just it though, he's more likely to score in SA than at home, just the way he's been playing over the last few years you can just tell he doesn't like these dusty spinners where the ball doesn't quite come on the bat. Tendulkar has always preferred pitches where the ball comes on nicely (even if there is swing or bounce on offer).

    I do hope he scores big at Dehli though, dude NEEDS a 100, it's been forever.

    He failed miserably on India's tours in 2011 to England And Australia.

    What's there to suggest that he can turn it around in South Africa ?
    All the evidence suggests he's gone.

    Why not blood a Rayudu or a Rohit Sharma and see what gives ? They may fail but hey its no worse than Tendulkar. WHo knows - you may strike gold with a youngster in much the same way that India did with Dravid at Lords in 1996.

    uh, since when does averaging mid 30's = to "failed miserably"?

    He looked (and averaged) A LOT worse against NZ and ENG at home than he did away against AUS and ENG

    Nah come on now, that is just being a sensible captain.

    Dravid at The Oval 2007 vs. England was playing for a draw. And fair enough, 1-0 up in England, historic series win on the line, did not blame him.

    Dhoni was not doing anything stupid to allow Australia a win. He never gave up on the win.

    There is a world of difference.

    He was our best batsman in the first 2 tests (where the test series was lost). After that Kohli stepped up, but series was gone by then.
