Kyunki saurav bhi kabhi "dada" tha

The recent news that indicated a split between saurav and the coac greg chappell ,soes not seem to augur well for indian cricket.

I personally feel Ganguly has crossed the line by going public with greg's comment on his exclusion.If ganguly was that determined about getting his place in the 11,he should come out all guns firing ...and silenced the critics with his bat doing the talking.But instead the "prince' decided that ..he would use a few political gimmicks that would win him some sympathy from the public at large.

I feel chappel was right ..in asking ganguly to step down as ganguly was more of a liability in the team,than a member who was contributing.Ganguly has to digest the fact that his days in the sun are almost over...and he seems to play with a fear and premonition that is totally uncharecteristic of him.

His frequent statements of him being "temporarily" out of form...does not go well with me..as a guy cant be out of form for 5 years. He has scored 5 centuries in the last 5 years...all coming at points when his form was hitting nadir.. with only the hundreds against england at leeds and the aussies at the gabba being knocks he dominated against a quality attack.

recollecting...his other 3 centuries have been against NZ and ZIMB coming against some lacklustre dibbly dobbly seamers...

So I personally feel that neither do stats save ganguly nor his present form and given the fact that youngsters like kaif,yuvraj and badani are on the bench because ..ganguly is unwilling to hang his boots..indian cricket portends a not-so-safe future.

Contrast this to aussie and pom (england) style of leadership/selection criteria ...wheer some one as reputed as steve waugh ,mark waugh ...were just shown the door ...as the selectors felt they were inmpediments to the growth of young blood in the team.

Our captain ..here with a so so record gains sympathy from his supportesr with the claim that he is india's most succesful captain....but 10000 miles away someone with a 80 % success rate ...like ricky ponting has the damocles sword hanging over his neck after a pulsatingly close and nerve wracking series...

strange are the ways of the yardships ...selectors use to select people..

Talking from ganguly's side ..the fact that he had moulded a side from scratch and converted them into word beaters ..is true ....but those acts of the past cannot be a ticket for the future...and it is this feekling that ganguly is not able to digest...his ego ..is not allowing him to progress any better

so all i can say ..my dear "PRINCE OF CALCUTTA" is that the days of the "RAJ" are over ...and its better u hang up ur boots...when the going is good rather than being chucked out.
