injury to rescue...

shared by straight point on Monday, October 13, 2008

next match at mohali...known as the most pace friendly track...something like perth of india...

playing two spinners there seems one too many...

we shudder at the thought of captain being lone spinner in the team...on current form...that is...

so how to overcome this selection dilemma...

pop comes the news...captain is injured...

everybody smiling...the problem is resolved 'amicably'...

this brings me to the question...

why did captain played in this match in first place...carrying injury?

for i am yet to find an incident in this match when this 'injury' happened...

did i miss something?

this is the point OTT...

why you are playing if you are not fit...

no other spinner left other than him and bhajji in india?

AK played for the same reason srt and zaks played thru injuries. Call it the "Main Kheloonga" funda, just not that cute anymore.

Sad bit, they were never his team on the field. Tho he was their manager off it, down under.

jumbo deserves better. but then doesn't everybody?

Q said...

Kumble is injured? when did this happen and when did they announce it? Is he ruled out of the 2nd test?

So who will captain? Dhoni?

Straight Point said...

we will play even if it costs us match...so what...

so what if one goes without a wicket...aren't other players there too to take wickets?

shame.

Straight Point said...

yes Q, though there is not official confirmation but the reports which are emanation from 'sources' are that he wont play 2nd test match coz of 'shoulder injury'

scorpicity said...

To start with, he better be made to go through a fitness test.. second, Mishra might have momentarily licked his licks in anticipation but reality is the team has announced that he is very much fit for the rest of the series.

"The shoulder is shaping up well, and hopefully I should be 100% by Mohali" - AK

Straight Point said...

john and scorpy

yes...i heard that...so its small matter that while his shoulder was coming in nicely he was as toothless as bite of an old man...

utp said...

hehe...DOLDRUMS is the word...the current state of affairs...

Sanjay Awasthi said...

coz he knows if he kept out for a match even due to injury, can cost relutantly retirement.

Straight Point said...

you hit the nail on its head SA...!!

if he sits out and other spinner performs admirably it will be difficult for him to walk in the side...hence the reluctance to take rest even if it costs india vital opportunity to break thru...

Sanjay Awasthi said...

SP,ultimately you understand my concern.... He (AK) would not like to take chance and let the chance go to any other spinner for his brightttttttttt future...

about me...
