Dude you just read my mind... Saurav Ganguly was good captain. No matter he didn't used to perform well but team work was good. I have seen him scolding players like they are little kids...

And the way Dravid was consulting Saurav during WC 2007 shows he still got the passion, talent and strategies which can make india Win...

I think we are all prone to knee jerk reactions. Tendulkar fails, get Dada. Dada fails, get Dravid. Dravid fails, get Dada. ***? Sourav was lucky he had some good people during his time that's all. And he was motivational I agree - but because he has a great ego (good in small measures). But he grew too big for his boots and had to be put in place.

Either give Dravid some time or get all the oldies out. Everyone is also busy blaming Chappel. Do we really know whether he was able to have his way with the team? NO. Sehwag can excuse himself from training, Dada can sulk and talk crap whenever he wanted and we don't say shyte. I am not giving Chappel a clean chit, but we are great at jumping to conclusions.

In any case, enough cricket for now. I am shifting to soccer. Disgusting.

No point passing the ball to ex-captains. The only person who still deserves his place in this Indian team would be Dravid. Dada can retire peacefully now that he has shown that he is good for a couple of knocks.

On what merits?
His Captaincy is the Worst in Indian Cricket!
His batting record in last 1 - 2 years is far below average!

He too should be dumped if you are asking the head of other seniors in the Team!

Default India's exit: Advertisers seek rebate

Team India's flop show at the Cricket World Cup is likely to haunt television broadcaster SET India, and state-owned DD to a lesser extent, as a host of advertisers are putting in requests for bonus spots or discounts.
The developments are expected to take an ugly turn with the Indian Society of Advertisers (ISA) objecting to a joint statement issued by the Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) and Advertising Agencies Association of India (AAAI) earlier in the day.
Among other things, the statement said that "cricket packages when bought or sold are not necessarily linked to the fortunes of the Indian team alone."
Later in the day, Srinivasan Swamy, president, AAAI, admitted that the ISA had not been consulted before the statement was issued. Concessions might be offered to advertisers, he added.
Though advertisers cannot force re-negotiations on ad rates, as they are bound by contracts, the dip in viewership and waning interest among Indian viewers is irking them.
Durables manufacturer Videocon, for instance, will spend Rs 10 crore on the World Cup, instead of the Rs 20 crore it had initially set aside. V N Dhoot, chairman, Videocon Industries, said the company will fulfill prior commitments, but will not make additional investments in cricket.
Anil Khera, CEO and director, Sansui, a brand managed by Videocon, was more candid. "We are in the process of negotiating with Set Max for 50 per cent reduction in the total bills," he said.
Prasad Narasimhan, vice-president, marketing, TVS Motor Company, added that his company was taking up the issue of a revision in advertising tariffs with the channel.
Retailer Subhiksha has managed to get free bonus spots on DD during feature film telecasts and a major telecom player has hinted that large clients will bargain with broadcasters, said sources.
Media-buying agencies shared the sentiments of their clients. A senior executive at ZenithOptimedia said, "We will meet SET India on Tuesday. We are concerned about India's early exit as we have put about Rs 90 crore in SETMax. We might look at spreading this spend much beyond the World Cup, but commenting on the situation will fuel speculation at this juncture."
As for Sony, Rohit Gupta, executive vice-president, SET India said, "It's unfair on the part of advertisers to ask for discounts." However, he did not deny that advertisers are approaching the official broadcaster for exactly that purpose.

Just look at the runs scored, the average and the strike rate. Dravid is not that bad actually. Compared to some of the other 'masters'.

Arre baba, there are no statistics for this world cup. 3 matches do not make a world cup, especially if 2 of them have been against bangla & bermuda. It is the attitude of dravid vs the attitude of the other seniors that i am talking about. Out of the 3, dravid is more a team man who puts team before self. Ganguly is highly egotistic & wants to be a hero all the time. Sachin, well, he is past his prime now. there are too many things on his mind these days.

Also Pathan ought to be groomed now to take up the all rounders slot .. Wonder whatever happened to Balaji ?? He was good at the death with those late inswinging yorkers ..
Fully agree with you!
