Bowled Over By The Selectors????

After the historic win at Perth against Australia,it was all cheers to the Indian team as well as the fans here.But that moment didn't last too long.For the selectors threw an axe with a dissappointing act by dropping fellow inform batsmen Sourav Ganguly and 'The Wall'-Rahul Dravid with an intention to give chance to some rarely known faces like Suresh Raina,Yousuf Pathan,Gautham Gambhir,Piyush Chawla so on..

The selectors can be called as dictators rather who do things according to their own wishes and care for nothing be in a disaster-who cares?The reason behind the selection being to give youngsters a chance.But is even Sachin Tendulkar a youngster?I never knew this..Did you?

It looks like the selectors do get some commission if India fares badly we beleive.Probably that was the reason why VVS Laxman was replaced by Dinesh Mongia in 2003 WC.Thats the reason why Parthiv Patel (who had not even featured in state games and India A team untill then) was made to keep wickets untill Dhoni proved his calibre.And the sideling of Anil Kumble(India's highest wicket taker in ODI's) and VVS Laxman in one dayers for so long says it all.

If its not form and fitness then what is it that takes to be a part of the squad?Does anyone know?

With their(selectors') places so confirmed there's no one who dares to ask them in a republic country.Does the selectors consider the players as human beings or puppets-to sack them whenever they wish to do so without any reason?After the slection and ommission,a team as predicted would look like this:

Piyush Chawla

Pankaj Singh

Dinesh Karthik(wk)

Praveen Kumar

Suresh Raina

Robin Uttappa

M S Dhoni(c)

Virender Sehwag

Sachin Tendulker

Harbhajan Singh


Well!If things go well,the credit should go to the selectors...Else the axe starts hanging on the senior players especially captain M S Dhoni.God please save the Indian Cricket Team.
