Dear Srikanth and all BBCI members, Please take care of RAHUL DRAVID and LAXMAN, If Dravid gets backing he will over take Tendulkar's top score as he has true potential. Dravid and Laxman need solid backing from BCCI
In the Fab Four of Indian batting, i would rate Dravid and Laxman far above Sachin and Saurav.Mainly because they were team players to the core and didn't mind any sacrifices for team interest.In contrast Sachin and Saurav mostly played for themselves and records 9(Sachin specially).Rahul and Laxman faced bias from selectors while Sachin is the blue eyed boy of the selectors even now.Rahul was pushed up and down the order, forced to keep wickets, sacked from one day team when his performance was better than the others, and Laxman was always the sacrificial goat when someone needed to be dropped.So Laxman deserves all respect and the BCCI should acknowledge it's fault and felicitate Laxman and Dravid and apologise to them for the harm it did to their careers.And then the BCCI should go ahead and sack Sachin.Remember how he cried like a baby when Dravid declared when he was not out on 190 odd?He was selfishly going slow for a double hundred against team interest.Good move by Dravid,the eternal team man.

Very good message .VVS and rahul have done yomen service to India and god know why particularly VVS was not given his due .I would go miles to watch his silken batting.Even in One days he has given his best India won the series in WI.He is not a star and he has no backing from the selectors the way Saurav had from Dalmia .It is a shame selecters from south lack the back bone .His battery is sheer symphony. By the way what has rediff moderator found objection in the posting of Anuraug I am not sure .Some devotees of Sachin must have found objectionable when a mention was made .It is a reality check

I agree.Also Atul Wassan was a better bowler than Richard Hadlee and Wasim Akram.I also like Arshad Ayub,Paras Mhambhrey, and Amey Kuruvila.All star bowlers who never got recognition.

ha ha ha.. he missed to type 'to rescue' But in few one day matches he was there in the team when india was failing and eventually he lost his position in one day. To me, he is a class test player.
Mal Loye and Lancashire openers also scored heavily against opposition. It proves that Yorkshire bowlers are mediocre. Laxman should prove in other more tougher matches in county to prove his batting form in this season.

u want laxman 2 prove again??? Just try 2 remember 2001 home series with australia. At that time they have world class bowling attack of McGrath, gillespie, warne, kasprowicz and d captiain himself steve waugh. Mr Nayak, laxman has proved in many situations and now its ur turn that u r not running out of memory.
Laxman in pure artistic. He is a class of his own. He is a thorn in the flesh of the Aussies. Time and again he has saved India fr. distress. He is a match winner. He can easily walk into any form of cricket. If Dravid can be re-instated in 50/50 format so too Laxman. His strike rate is far above Dravid. Are the selectors watching & listening. He is much above Sachin also in case of match winning knocks or match saving knocks. Sachins knocks have been mostly in vain. India have lost mostly whenever Sachin scores.Its a proven fact.

Such a crap message .... It implies u dont know about cricket... Sachin has the good record whenever he strikes with his bat and He fails rarely ..... Dnt u knw he only sets the platform.... So u think India got alot of wins without any platform built.... Such a foolish judgement...
