Why are you people cursing Sachin? Have you considered and realised following points also?
1.Why Raina was kept on giving priority? 2.Why RP was summoned when Munaf was available? 3.Why Sreesanth was selected despite his dismal perfomances? 4.Why Abhinav was not given prioroty? 5.Selection of team is what Srikkanth select.One day he will select his son no surprise while other senior player will be around.

Never go by misconceptions.Be wise while writing here. Srikanth never used any player except Mukund from Tamilnadu.He has been quite fair in selection compared to the selectors who prevailed earlier. No one raised voice when 7 players from Karnataka played in the Indian side. No why do we raise such lame things.It is not selectors job to play on the field.If the team fails as a whole (which this team is called as the best possible team),what better can be done?

Raina was selected because he is a kashmiri, that one I know for sure. The strong advisors in the background are still kashmiris, gujjus and shiv sena. it stinks
Over the decades India's improvement in overseas matches has been because of a strong opening pair. This changed after Gambhir and Sehwag arrived at the scene and the middle order got some cushion to bat under.
The intermitent firing of this pair reduced pressure on the entire team. The middle order got a breather and typically faced an older ball with conditions after lunch sessions.
Raina in particular was exposed when the top order fails and if the middle order was out of form suddenly Raina had to play a big innings which was not possible for him.
Hopefully, the arrival of Rahane, and then Rohit Sharma, Pujara and Tiwari will solve this issue.
The replacement of the middle order could have been handled properly with the start of the SA tour. Positions, #4, #5 and #6 were available in the WI tours and it should have been given to Rahane, Sharma, Tiwari since Pujara was injured.
Sharma has an domestic FF average of 61 and was persisted too long for one dayers. Tiwari was never properly integrated as a middle order Test prospects who opened a disastrous 1-day innings.
Pujara has done well India with the potential of being the future. The chances with Virat, Raina and Yuvraj have been wasted in Tests, instead the Rahane, Sharma, Pujara and Tiwari was a better bunch.
People are compalining that why selfish Dravid is still in the team. Makes me laugh to pieces that if he wasn't in the team our scoreline would have been even amazing with atleast 3 of the test matches would have been finished within 2-3 days.
THIS IS THE FIRST TIME A WORLD NO 1 TEAM HAS BEEN MADE TO LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF MCBCS
IMPORTANT POINTS NOTED
DHONI IS JUS ANOTHER ORDINARY CAPTAIN, WHTHR IT IS CAP COOL OR NIMBU PANI HIS LACK OF COURTSY IN NOT APOLOGISING TO THE HEARTBROKEN FANS MAKES HIM APPEAR LIKE A RETARD HIS STOCK REPLY THAT WE HAV BEEN OUTPLAYED BY A BETTR TEAM PROVES THAT STILL HE DOES NOT KNOW UP TO WAT LEVL HE HAS ALREDY SUNK
SACHIN TENDULKAR IS A HIGHLY OVERATED BATSMEN. HIS COLLECTION OF SMALL CENTURIES HAV NOT MUCH CONTRIBUTED TO INDIAS CAUSE.ONLY BIG CENTURIES MAKE AN IMPACT OVR A GAME
RAHUL DRAVID IS ONE OF THE BEST PLAYER V HAV. BUT HE CAN PLAY GANDHIGIRI OUTSIDE 22 YRDS. HIS IDIOTIC DECISION TO WALK OFF THE FEILD WHN INDIA WER REELING IN THE THIRD TEST WITHOUT ASKING FOR REVIEW WAS A HOLIER THAN THOU ATTITUDE
FINALLY IS DER ANY COACH IN THE WORLD TO TEACH SREESANTH AND CO HOW TO THROW STONES AT MANGOES
THE ONE AND ONLY POSITIVE OUTCOME IS THAT OTHER SPORTS MAY GET SOME LIFELINE AT INDIAN CRICKETS TIMELY DEATH
Is Sachin had any important role for winning any series for INDIA ?He piled up runs as his age grown up,other than piling up runs do any of his Innings denote/refer/cherish for importance. Look at the India Population.There are many youngsters waiting for a chance and it is very disgusting to see the role play behind by some sorts of group ? BCCI ? Selectors ?regional Commentators ? allowing him to play for such a long period by denying geniune young players.
It is high time to apply force by all like BCCI, Selectors, Bombay commentators,Ex-players to make him retire or else to take a hard decision by BCCI and Selectors?

ok.Dravid is a selfish cricketer but on this tour he has shown that he can hang on to the wicket.That's what was needed.His three hundreds were not the best, he was often found struggling against swing and away going movement but he held on,showed his resolve and thats what is great.can you name any one else from our famrd lot- all paper tigers with no depth or class and this includes the over rated sachin.take it or leave it.

yes that is nice observation but nothing new....we all knew since 2001 itself that sachin is cellfish and BCCI is allowing him to make centuries because BCCI gets 50% of his earnings.Okay?Now about rahul dravid, yes he is not cellfish.if he is cellfish he would play more strokes because he has teh strokes and make runs faster and get triple centuries but he plays slowly and slowly and he doesnot have any big scores. You know also sachin is not heping new talent, he is only helping his son.What business his son has to play cricket in lords and that too not alone but with his friends?what business zaheer khan has to be bowling to sachin son?But yeh india hai janab...corruption...dishonesty...sab apne apne beti bete ko promore karte hain.

india& poor countries MUST ban Test Cricket& 3 day macthes forever&Play ONLY T20 matches so that millions of man or woman hours are NOT lost watching monotonous Test cricket& 3 day macthes,etc.It is possible. This game of cricket lasting many days was invented by British looters like inventing british double agent mahatma gandhee& dirty trick of non-violence, to fool people of colonies& to make them lazy&morrrons FOREVER too by addciting them with all types of dirty tricks. BCCI& rulers are still behaving as slaves of Westerners, shame they have appointed white skinned westerners as coach,etc paying millions of dollars though we have excellent indian coaches like jimmy amarnath, madan lal,etc who can do better jobs than foreigners.BCCI& government must NOT allow more than 2 foreign players in each team&Give greater opportunity to indians.Shame that BCCI& rulers are behaving as slaves of westerners even now or are they getting huge kick-backs in the deals involving forein players,etc,Millions of cricket fans mustNOT allow our country to be looted again by foreigners&foreign agents.Hope millions of indians are listening& give justice to indian public& to national honour&pride too.

yes agreed, but only one change send this foolish mallu sreesanth home and ensure he is never selected again, same goes for r.p.singh as for bhajji the devil will now get his due
