injury to one...opportunity for another...

shared by straight point on Wednesday, June 17, 2009

the news filtering from media is that sachin and jatman the viru will not be able to play in team india's coming tour of west indies...

i don't think this is such a bad news for india...

for forever-waiting players like dinesh karthik, badrinath, and our own 'che'teshwar pujara...that might just be the god send opportunity they were waiting for to stake claims...show their worth...

since the series is starting almost after the t20 world cup is over...and most of team india's current players are anyway carrying niggles...bruised egos...alleged fatigue...

why not include players who will bring in much needed intensity...willing legs to run that extra single...fresh body to stop that run being taken...why not use west indies series to test these gents...?

at least there will be some interest...

It's an ODI series, I'm for a complete overhaul, why not send Bangalesh instead, and have Dinesh Karthik captain them - if he can bring about any improvement, let him be the vice captain. Of India.

as if dk being the wicket keeper wasn't enough to detriment his career in the eyes of dhoni...you want to make him vice captain...?!!

how can you do this to dk...? ;-)
