I was expecting an update earlier.:P never mind,now that you did.
Well,what to say-we DID have a disastrous test series AGAIN,in a foreign soil,and that too within a year and it surely reeks of the declining test potential of the team in general as of now.The team needs immediate action to get its test glory back as well as most of its players need to get back their “form” and this very form leads the discussion towards the issue in hand-”rotating of the senior players”.Well,what EXACTLY do we decipher out of this action taken by the team-rotating Sehwag,Sachin and Gautam in turns? The reason for doing this is termed that “the seniors are “SLOW” on the field ” and it causes runs getting leaked.In an effort to handle the same,the seniors are being rested.Logic!
Now,isn’t a team,while chasing a target,SCORE runs in itself?Not ALL the eleven players of a team are exceptional fielders,they can NOT be! if the opposition team is scoring runs, the chasing team has got to score a couple runs more than them during their innings.Isn’t cricket BASICALLY about it?! And WHY ONLY the top-order batsmen were being rotated ?We had Manoj Tiwari accompanying the team who had scored brilliantly in domestic just before that and even in the ODI against WI prior to that?Is it just Rohit Sharma or Suresh Raina who deserve to be groomed for the next WC or cement their career?Irfan pathan nearly wasted himself on the benches almost throughout the series and got just a couple of matches and the guy proved his worth even during that meagre time he was provided.The ones who were given chances continuously didn’t even perform as to what was expected of them! and one personal OPINION of Gambhir was being twisted and talked about like he doesn’t understands the game at all! How weird is that?That guy IS a regular member of the team,and is entitled to his opinion.The win against Australia would NOT have been possible without his 92,that much should be kept in mind.! Throughout the series,He made sure he leaves an impact,in whichever game he played.56 in the T20 match,92,91,63=all have been his scores and he actually came up as the highest run getter in the series.But STILL,never for once,the deserved acknowledgment reaches him,Ehh!how unjust is that?The game-finisher leaves his impact by hitting a couple of sixes and some such big shots,but someone who actually anchored the innings,laid a base for the game is so easily overlooked.!
Well,Asia Cup is soon going to be held.I hope the team gains back its glory and everything in it,performs well and of course,Gambhir plays his part again,AMAZINGLY! Its India vs Pak on 18th and I was remembering the last series and Gambhir and Kamran Akmal’s clash..haha! would be worth the wait-this time as well.
and last but definitely not the least-Get well soon Yuvi! ! The Team NEEDS you.!
