Split Wide Open
“I have given my heart and my soul for 17 years. No coach had mentioned even in passing that my attitude was not correct. Cricket has been my life for all these years and will always be. Again, it’s not that we are defending ourselves. We do realise that we played badly and, as a team, we take full responsibility for that.But what hurt us most is that the coach has questioned our attitude.”
This was in response to the coach Greg Chappell’s accusations that the senior team members often teamed up against his and Dravid’s decisions. Milind Rege, former Ranji Captain says that:
It is completely out of control. Indian Cricket is in a mess right now and unless and until the BCCI come strongly with decisions that are for the players to accept, for the selectors to accept, for those who control cricket to accept, Indian Cricket is going to head for serious trouble.
Definitely not a good direction to head in, for Indian Cricket. Ok, they lost to Bangladesh and were kicked out of the world cup. Lets just forget it as just another match and move on. The way the politicians and the media are hyping this issue, it looks like Indian cricket will take a u-turn and head Zimbabwe’s way, into oblivion. Please, let it not happen like that!
