If Sachin and Kumble hadn't come along, Indian team would have disappeared without a trace.
I'm actually looking forward to Laloo becoming chief of BCCI.


Indian Cricket has always been graced by some good Batters but we have hardly got good Bowlers working in Tandem. Three Quality wicket taking Bowlers who complements each other in variety.
Kapil was fighting alone in his time with some support in between.
Kumble has been doing same, again with some support in between. No partnership.
Look into any Winning Team and you'll find some Good Bowlers.

It's no conspiracy theory - how can you explain that a country of > 1 billion people has to struggle finding good cricketers whereas a country of less than 30 million can find scores out of a hat?

Or are you saying that our team is actually quite competent and we shouldn't be complaining at all?

Cricket is really the only sport that India is involved in, whereas countries like Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and England are involved in many others and do relatively well in those.

What's missing? and where?

Well i can give you a list of sports where as a nation of 1 billion we havent been able to find talent in

Hockey .... on international level ... when was the last time we won any tournament.
Football ..... we dont even figure in Asian level .... mind you football is one sport which does not require any equipment .... just a football, a field and a will to play ..... millions of people play this sport in India ... but we have not managed to field an international level player .... forget a team
Atheletics .... again all it requires is a ground and someone with a will to run .... still we havent found anyone to do it .....
I can go on and on listing evry sport we have not been able to produce good sportsmen ..... cricket is the only sport we have world class players .....

In India politics, movies and cricket is passion ..... nothing else matters ... is if any one of these is not doing well we show our resentment .... when was the last time we as a nation mourned a loss in hockey ......... as we do in cricket

Yet, we win very few tournaments and very often lose out to other top ranking teams.
Recently, we have started losing to the lesser teams like Bangladesh, too.
I wonder how soon are we going to start losing to Ireland, UAE and Holland :P

The first one obviously doesn't require any special qualifications ;)
If a nation of 1 billion has only 3 passions AND we seem to have ample talent in the first two, what's lacking in the third dept. ?

Bangladesh is a young & upcoming side .... who have even beaten Pakistan & Australia in a one dayer ..... the same was true of Sri Lanka when they came into world cricket .... no one took them seriouly till they started beating good sides .... loss to bangladesh ... i wouldnt be bothered about it ... what bothers me is the inconsistent play by most of our players .... they need to work on that ... one match they score some runs & then the next match that effort is not there .... Ireland , holland UAE will come up & have their day in the sun.

Well do we have talent in Politics and movies on a international level???? dont think so .... as far as movies are concerned a small place like Hong Kong is more prominent in world cinema then India ... even though we produce volume ..... as for indian politics .... we are number 1 ... depending on what you are looking at :D

Agarkar is not playing in today's match and it will not help Indian winning the game. (SA 162/4 34 overs)

RP Singh: 7 0 39 1 5.57

Only performers should be in the team.

BTW, Agarkar is not dropped from the team, he is sick.

If we lose, it'll be because of lack of any bowling attack, Agarkar or whoever.
When Ganguly is the 3rd bowler in the side, it's truly a sad state of affairs.
We are so obsessed with batting that we have picked only 1 international, regular bowler in this game (Zaheer).
If Agarkar had been well, we would still have 2 bowlers.

Match is Gone. Team India Lost another one with 3 balls to spare. Not much of Bowling Option. Dravid could have tried Rohit Sharma lil earlier. He is good Bowling option for ODIs - 43rd over he went for 3 runs.

You were expecting a spinner to replace the medium pacers .... we already have two spinners in the side ..... with Dravid deciding to go with 4 bowlers .. there was no way he would have got the nod ..... if Chawla or Powar had been sick then there was a chance or if dravid decided to field 5 bowlers ..... which in hindsight he should have done .....
