among the 3, gambhir is the biggest politician followed by tendulkar and then sehwag. We can say that sehwag got hit by wrong side of the age. He could have done better if he did not get entangled in the selectors politics.
If Sachin and Sehwag do not play it is impossible for India to go to final in try series. you may blame both the players for their poor performances but simultaneously you have to accept this irony also. young stars are also useless
Dhoni feels that playing young players will save 20 rus but he forgets that when a batsmen saves runs in the field and does not score sufficiently it makes no point and moreover why not play manoj tiwari as he is also a very good fielder but Dhoni's excessive backing policy is surely not good for the teams interest.
Most of the times, dhoni slips the catches, and missing the stumpings, is it means he is very bad in behind stumps, tendulkar and shewag are taking very good catches and stop many runs on the out field. Even rohit also miss some catches in CB series, Is dhoni say he is the perfect fielder?

agree. even he does not know where to stand when filder throw ball and because of that in last two match two run out was missed.
The rule of perform or perish should be applicable to all the players of the team. We should not target a selected group of players calling them as senior players may not be acceptable. Look at the average of the Dhoni during the test series and the average of the suresh raina. Are they not be punished because of their poor form? As Manjrekar rightly said that the selection does not have the luxury of the support of the fans and media. If you rest Dhoni, i guess it will be another "Ann Movement" in India. It is the fans and media how has to support the selector so that the young guys with aspiration to represent India will get a chance based on their performance.
Surprisingly, we allow the players to gain the lost form at the cost of nation. We will not allow them to go and play the domestic cricket and gain the form. We give as many chances as required so that the player can hit a hundred and then goes into out form again.
Rahul Dravid is the only player at the senior level, to the best of my knowledge, is playing the ranji matches. I think the seniors should learn from hi.
