Congratulations to another Rahul, wish him long career.

FYI, Uthappa and Vinay were never in the same team as the others. It was Dodda Ganesh and Vijay Bharadwaj.

I am very proud of him being the first player to be selected at Test level from our district. However I am sorry as long as darling of Dhoni and Srinivasan is in the squad I doubt this youngster will be a victim like those youngsters who sat on the bench for ever & shunted out of the team by selectors.

Cricket is full of politics and good and genuine players, who do not have godfathers in the Board or political parties, they will be shunted out. If one wants to succeed, he should make atleast one politician as Godfather.
