Sunny Side or Shady Side?

Inspite of Pathan scoring 35 off only 25 deliveries, the signal that was sent by demoting Tendulkar wasn't a good one. The little champion, when he came in to bat, scored at a strike rate more than 100 runs per ball as if to show that he has not lost it. Then, what about Harbhajan's promotion above V V S Laxman and Mohammad Kaif who is an acknowledged one-day specialist?

Yes, we have seen Pathan's promotion in one-dayers work in India but this changing of batting order was exactly the same thing that Ganguly was castigated for in Zimbabwe. Now, it's called experimentation but when the former skipper was doing it, it was called spreading panic. Guess it depends on what media relations one has.

The title of Gavaskar's latest article reads, "Change in batting order uncalled for". Well, I think those two paragraphs in that article of his are totally uncalled for. For me apart from Jaffer's two knocks, the only positive for India from the Nagpur test was that final session on the fifth day. The simple logic behind promoting Irfan and Dhoni ahead of Sachin was to give themselves a realistic chance to have a go at the target without risking a collapse. Now how hard is that to understand?

I agree with your comments not. It also gave the Indians the upper hand going into the 2nd test, which can only be a good thing.
