I doubt the divorce proceedings would be in an Indian court as Arun Nayar is a british citizen too :P.

I think Warne would be a good choice, although I wonder whether our senior players would be willing to work with him. He did wonders as coach and captain of the Rajasthan Royals during the first IPL, with a very young side at his disposal.

Talking Re: The Cricket World Cup 2011 thread. EDIT: India World Champions !!

Yuvraj's reply to Shahid Afridi's change of heart :

"It's true that Pakistanis have a large heart. Or how would you explain their generous gesture of dropping so many catches during the India-Pak semis. The outcome of this World Cup could have been different had it not been for their largesse!"

It came as answer to the last question of the following interview :
World Cup: I knew no force on earth could stop me: Yuvraj

Just imagine Warne coaching Team India and giving tips to Sachin to improve his batting.

+1. But with a rider ofcourse. He can be appointed as a bowling coach or something like that. He might be able to help that Piyush Chawla who has been bowling anything but leg spin these days.

I feel Warney can contribute in a huge way to the fine tune the upcoming spinners in our team.

^^ thats the rule isn't it ? All 15 get it. Even though they have not stepped on the ground in the Finals. Nehra bowled well in some games and so did Pathan in some where he hit a few sixes and some fours in crisis. Everyone should get credit for team effort IMO.

As an ex first class player I got a free invite to lunch and one full day of partying by my State Cricket Association to celebrate the victory. And I didn't even buy the tickets to any match. Used my pass.

Those guys were at-least in the first 15

It seems that the Srilankans havent taken their defeat with sportsmanship spirit. After Sangakara stepped down from Captaincy, Mahela Has stepped down from Vice Captaincy. In fact the entire selection committee is mass resigning.

Mahela Jayawardene quits, Sri Lanka's selectors also offer to resign - Sport - DNA

Interesting news. Both Sangakkara & Jayawardene are good pals and J'wardene has followed his best friend in relinquishing the responsibilities

Dilshan has been mentioned as a possible candidate to be the next captain. It would be interesting to see if the Sri Lankan selectors will opt for him. I don't think that he is a thinking cricketer, case in point is how he got out to Tait in the WC

knee jerk reaction. How is any of it going to help?

Firing works in corporates to keep inefficient from trying to get to the top job or those at top from becoming inefficient. Who are they trying to deter here?

One of my srilankan friend has said that Matthew has told him something which Indian public will not accept. He is not giving much details but he said all these resignation in SL cricket is outcome of that.

I feel very sad for Sangakkara. Takes the game to the highest level and loses to the TOP team. And this is how they treat him.
