Laxman recalled..

VVS Laxman, who was originally deemed physically challenged to play a part in India's ODI plans has been asked to fly in as a replacement for the injured Dravid. It needs to be seen if he would be able to land in time for the next game on wednesday. Laxman has had an ordinary start to the current domestic season - scores of 15, 50, 3, 45 and 31 (Duleep and Ranji games) are quite modest for a player of his stature. The team's morale is at its lowest ebb and Laxman is the kind of player who relishes in situations like these. The last time he featured in colored clothing for India was in August last year in the Indian Oil Cup, which incidentally was Chappell's first tour as coach. Zaheer and Kumble are already back, Laxman is making his way back - add Ganguly, Nehra and Balaji to the squad and you have pretty much the same set of players from the pre-Chappell days..

The madness that is Indian cricket continues. I just hope they don't bring back Ganguly. It'll only help in maintaining some sacntity about the proceedings.

TIME TO KICK OUT CHAPPEL

Its time to kick out Chappel and get someone more experienced and level headed Indian Coach. Is it a coincedence that all the players with whom he has had the opportunity to work with for more than a year have forgotten to do what they were originally selected to do for the Indian Team. Take for Instance one by One

Rahul Dravid Once considered a wall and a technically sound batsman who could also keep wickets. He has forgotten to Bat, He has forgotten to field has dropped vital catches playing as captain for the Indian Team and he has been a miserable captain. Nobody in the Indian team wants to play under his captaincy, he mumbles in press conferences he makes a poor show as a person. Who is to Blame? Greg Chappel thought he would be a Good Captain afterall.

Sachin Tendulkar. Some people call him a blaster some call him Tendlya. But he has failed miserably with the bat.His statistics in South africa test series is 20. One days he has given a poorer account of himself. Well earlier he used to take some pretext of some elbow injury, Back spasm, Tennis elbow etc to avoid such critisism but now he can’t do it because we all know he has actively involved himself to fight for exclusion of Saurav from Team India. Sachin’s situation is Just like Pakeya in The Film Rangeela. why…. ! He is Pakaoing the Indian fans and spectators with no shows, and more importantly you must remember Pakeyas dialogue in Rangeela, where he tells Raja (Aamir) about how he was treated when he proposed to a girl, he says that the girl slapped him with her chappals and then Raja Says ” Agar eisahi chalta Raha Na to bahut Jaldi Ladies Chappal Ka Dukan Kholna Pardenga ” Sachins state is something like this he is continiously trying to propose to the girl which is Indian Cricket and every time spectatators gets no shows. It is a matter of time that spectators will go with Ladies chappals to the stadiums and will help tendlya realize his ultimate nightmare, if he does not tighten his shoe laces. Pimping his cause is Gavaskar but such pimping will stand him no chance in the eyes of Indian Spectators. Now who is to Blame for all this definitely Greag Chappel.

Shewag used to get into the team because of his explosive Batting but now he is accomodated in the team because he can bowl off spin. Thanks Greag you have made a bowler out of an explosive batsman.

Irfan Pathan was a brilliant bowler, however Greg with his Coaching skills has converted him to a Batsman. Now he has forgotten how to Bowl. Brilliant WOW what Coaching! He was one player who stood by the Coach in his kinky plans called experimentation as a player, NOW WHILE SUPPORTING HE FORGOT HIS BASIC SKILLS, here greg was not man enough to support him he was send back in the middle of a series. Wow Greg you must be a good Coach a Man after all.

BEFORE TAKING ACTION AGAINST TENDULKAR, DRAVID SHEWAG AND PATHAN WHICH IS NECESSARY. KICK OUT GREG AND THEN ASK DRAVID TO STEP DOWN AND THEN CHOOSE THE TEAM ON MERIT AND MERIT ALONE.
