Things Are Very Easy In Indian Cricket?
Hmmm....India were reeling at 60/4 in the third test at Bangalore against arch rivals Pakistan.Then came a man at the crease to put up a 300 run partnership for the 5th wicket which made it to the record books for most good reasons.The man was no other than the "sixer hero" Yuvraj Singh.If that performance was to shape up his career as a test cricketer it was only to be mistaken.
The wonderful effort was followed by as many as "six" flop shows.The series of flop scores are as follows:0&5;12&0;2 & 3.How interesting eh?This is the way it has been going on with the Indian Cricket Team for years altogether.All that is needed is a place in the squad and not to question about their performance.Play one great Innings and you'll be considered.This is the attitude about most Indian players.Well Yuvi!Being dropped from the Perth test i guess he can spend some time with Deepika padukone.Wat?Speak up guys!!!
With the likes of Jason Gillespie,Andy Bichel,Michael Beaven,Shane Watson,Simon Katich and much more who have proved to be match winners in most of the games they've played and still having no option other than to play some domestic cricket or warm the benches,it is a pity that guys like Yuvraj,Wassim Jaffer,Dinesh Karthik etc are finding places in the team despite a series of failures based on one good performance in a bluemoon.Well!Is that the reason why Australia is far ahead of the rest of the world????
