Johnnie Walker Super Series - The Replacements

Sachin Tendulkar is not playing in the Super Series. His problems with his "tennis elbow" has now reached proportions where his die-hard fans have stopped watching and following tennis (Sania or no Sania). The good thing is that this does not seem to have any effect whatsoever on "Brand Sachin". The Jerry Mcguires and the Arliss Michaels of India are making sure that the brand would be intact for a life-time.

Sachin has been replaced by Inzamam in the tests and by Dravid in the ODIs. If the selectors had snubbed Inzamam again, the whole of Multan would have gone on a hunger strike. It is nice that Inzy has accepted the invitation and is travelling to Australia (He had earlier hinted that he might reject the "replacement player"
offer).

Herschelle Gibbs has also ruled himself out, and Chris Gayle (deservingly) will be taking his place for the ODIs. I saw Gayle in action recently during a 20-20 game and he did not show any signs of rustiness due to the long layoff.
