RE:Team & team Critics

Thats exactly what we need as i pointed out earlier.
Our current Indian team selectors are Dilip Vengsarkar. Bhupinder Singh Sr., Sanjay Jagdale, Ranjib Biswal and Venkatapathy Raju
Other than Vengsarkar and Raju. Does anyone know who all this 3 guys are. Have they played any International cricket
Bhupinder Singh Sr - PLayed only 2 ODI's and scored 6 runs and took 3 wickets Sanjay Jagdale - son of former Indian national team selector Madhavsinh Jagdale Ranjib Biswal - son of the Orissa politician - Basant Kumar Biswal.
How can we have such idiots as selectors.
Its like a 10th grade failed person teaching Post graduate students. Will anyone pass?
Thanks Vengsarkar for dropping Ajith agarkar..atleast now you know that he has been a real burden in the end overs and refuses to learn and rectify his mistakes...Again do not make the mistake of bringing him back for the one dayes and 20 overs .. mahadevan

dont write crap... its becuse of people like u and media that forced dravid to resign and also its the pressure u peoepl put on indian players and wich doest let them play their natural game ... u are a reason for them not performing well .. and also u are the cricits when they are not performaing well ...so show soem respect to them ... this a request from my side u all of you... nothing personal ... just wanna see india on top and all is required is our support .. so please support and dont criticize ...
I wonder how this man can make it to national team soo many times. The reason could one of these 1) political quota. 2) reservations ( back ward caste) 3) management seat 4)handicap quota ( with all those injuries)

These words are alien to Agarkar. He is there to kill his time and to kill everybody's interest in the game. Even batsmen like Dravid or Atapattu can bowl better than Agarkar. Agarkar should be permanently lifted out ot the circuit.

Thinking why didnt anyone target Dinesh karthik? He's doing well in the chances he gets. This is the only one day series he's not performed...when Sehwag was given so many chances during his slump, why not Karthik? He's a good keeper, an amazing fielder and a decent batsman. Give him a couple of seasons more. About Sreesanth, yes I dont think he should be in the team either...I pity Rohit Sharma but he's young and will come back. Powar..well he did bowl well in the previous one day series but his batting and fielding need to improve a lot...

Selecting Dinesh Karthick as a pure batsman for ODI cricket is plain stupid.He has scored only 2 fifties in 25 ODI matches he has played so far. Do not talk about his wicket keeping abilities as he never keeps the wickets.His ODI average is 23.57. Which is little more than what you expect from a tailender. not from a pure batsman.
Will accept Tendulkar or dravid or ganguly as a batsman if they score only 2 fifty from 25 matches. Will you accept the BIG 3 to have only 23.57 average in 25 matches and still get selected.
How does age matters when we are playing for performance. This is not under 19 team. Its Indian cricket team where talent matters irrespective of the age.
Even during his worst form. Tendulkar never had an average of 30 in his whole career.Tendulkar in his whole career was never had only 2 fifties in any of his 25 consecutive matches.]
If you are selecting a person has a pure batsman. then see his credits as a batsman.
Will you select a software engineer to work in a company who is best as a doctor. or will you select a doctor to work in the hospital who is best as a software engineer

Karthik has played only 25 matches. Most importantly he scored in difficult pitches. Remember hes got the man of match award in nagpur(correct me if iam wrong) when everyone was struggling.
the point is that, he has got right attitude to succeed. He has got wide range of shots. He can be successful in difficult pitches in australia. Just think about rahul dravid, whenhe began his oneday career. He was pathetic. Inspite of that he has got somany chances. Same thing is happening here.
And another thing is, hes trying hard to find a place in playing XI. He can be self-destructive to himself by thinking that hes just a backup keeper. But hes creating chances for himself and we've to encourage that.
Compare players like kaif and raina. Kaif has given somany chances although he has performed in very few oneday matches. samething about raina. Compared to them, he is giving justice to his team selection. Giving 100% all the time. thats what needed not egoistic persons.
Why are players like Rohit Sharma selected and then dropped without eventually trying them in any match. Why was he picked for the T20 world cup...to visit SA as a tourist at board's expenses?? Why don't India try more all rounders.
