Settling for hope
Perhaps, for those with a partiality to miracles, Ganguly will rediscover his batting machismo, field with enthusiasm, be sitting in the team bus before everyone gets there, heal every team rift, and re-take control of his team. It is improbable, and instead of being pro-active, Indian cricket has settled again for hope. Indeed, the only man who took a stand is Chappell and we're so unfamiliar with it that we have been reduced to platitudes of "best interests of the team" and "miscommunication". Instead of confronting a problem, we backed off.
So says, Rohit Brijnath in his latest article. There is an ancient Roman saying which says - "While there's life, there's hope!". But for an Indian cricket fan, the saying changes to - "While there's BCCI, there's no hope". As Rohit says in his article, the team is broken and they had a chance to build a new one. Instead they opted for a temporary glue that won't stick.
