Bye Bye Ganguly...

When there was no one saving India then came GOD, he gave Ganguly the gift of Tennis Elbow. A great era has come to an end.

Only two jobs are of any consequence in India. The Prime Minister's and the cricket captain's. In other words, the captain has a high-pressure, media-intrusive job. No wonder, every Indian skipper goes through a bad phase, but Ganguly didnt play for 2 years and the team didn't do well for the last one year, so it was time.
If Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Mohammed Kaif and Irfan Pathan are doing India proud today, it's because Dada backed them through thick and thin. Ganguly may not be great in making field placements, marshalling bowling changes or chalking out strategies. But he is an expert in man management. Words such as 'groups' and 'camps' have vanished from the Indian dressing room.
Ok enough of him now and we have Dravid as captain and all the best to him.
The squad for the coming one day series is, Rahul Dravid (captain), Virender Sehwag (vice-captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Venugopal Rao, Suresh Raina, M S Dhoni, Harbhajan Singh, Murali Karthik, Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, J P Yadav, Sree Santh, R P Singh, Gautam Gambhir.
Watch out for Sree Santh and all the best to the Indian team.

You're right about this one.

I have no idea why Laxman was dropped though. I wonder when the selectors will realise that we're freakin' lucky that he's freakin' Indian!
