India as it will allow some of the deadwood to keep their places
Exactly, this will give short lived false hope to the team. They need to make the big players feel that either perform or see the door. Places should not be taken for granted. All the four senior batsmen need to be replaced based on the performace and this can only happen if we loose and loose badly may be in three days and by inning.
Yeat that is true. Interestingly currently the new ones in the team looks more certain than the seniors. Although I doubt that BCCI will have the guts to show the doors to the seniors even after this dismal performance.
True but we don't have a replacement too. We can get a better WK/Batsman but whom you will made the captain. All the probable candidates are themselves not certain their position in the team and no junior ie ready to take that up.
Although I am not so sure about this report but differences between Dhoni and Sehwag are not new are are well known and because Gambhir is always a Sehwag supporter so it is true that they both are not in good terms.
Anyway let us see how they cope up with this in next match. Anyway it is true that there will be some changes post this series and is required as well.
certaiinly his time has come , let him decide series by series(SRT also quoted this in an Interview).
but dont force him to any conclusion.
he had served for the country for 23 yrs. lets not forget that.
do support him in his dyeing career stages.
let him retire gracefully.
One of the reasons he's able to stay in the team is that our reserve players are all pretty ordinary. Had he been in the Aussie or SA teams they'd have dropped him earlier this year or forced him into retirement.
