It's official, he's out, the elbow hasn't cleared up.
He hasn't delivered yet, and IMO no.7 doesn't look like the position for him. Indians might hv done better with Mongia (at 3/4) who has been in some good form playing for Lancashire. Or maybe give Karthik a go instead of Gavaskar at 7. I honestly cant see wht Gavaskar can do at 7 ....Sudeep said:What's wrong with Gavaskar?
two reasons that mongia was selected ahead of Laxman was that he is a much better feilder and is not that shocking as laxman is in runing betwen wicketsAndre said:To me, Gavaskar offers more to the side than Dinesh Mongia. Gavaskar is a well composed batsman, competent part-time bowler and excellent fielder. For mine, Mongia isn't as good with the bat, ball or in the field. He's a proven failure at ODI level and it was a disgrace how he was selected ahead of Laxman in the World Cup.
ahhhh my child, it is called the 'Champions Trophy' to find the champion team not player. can india compete without their best player? if not, it may just show how much of a one-man team they are (it has so far...) nooot gavaskar, put in a keeper IMOmasterblaster said:Not much of a 'Champions Trophy' without a true champion playing in it.
