I have always speculated in my Blog about Dravid's captaincy, our Coach and the lack of a proper game plan. Ravi Sastri has echoed similar opinions. I am not surprised here at all. Sastri in an interview has told that Chappel is controlling the show while Dravid has absolutely no power or control in the management. If this is true, our great Indian team has reached new low level. Congratulations . We can now feel why Chemistry failed to work for Gangu and Greg Chappel.

Indian team's batting management was totally below par in the recent tri series. Even at the school level, when tail enders play with a well set in-form batsman, the standing order is that - in-form player maintains the majority of the strike. If the in-form player does not follow this golden rule, it is the responsibility of the captain to send the message across.

Other day, for some reason the tail enders were not protected. Unwanted singles were taken and Tail enders were exposed to high voltage. No message was sent to Dinesh Mongia or the tail enders. Very poor batting management by Dravid. Brett Lee just needed few minutes to wipe the Indian @#$@#$ out. What was the coach and the captain doing? These are basics of cricket. As if this was not enough, Agarkar played the most irresponsible stroke known to man kind and our predecessor - the monkey kind. Is Agarkar really playing for India?

Coming to Dhoni, he was caught of a no ball, fine! - mistake of the umpire, still Dhoni played a very poor stroke. I dont blame him here, because his batting position changes like Nasdaq quotes. I think our Coach Gregy boy uses a "lot" mechanism to pick the batting order. Do you know that Dhoni has scored more runs at number 3 position. Who in the hell changes the batting order at random? , There is no reason for Dravid to open the innings, The batting order should be Sehwag, Sachin and Dhoni, followed by Dravid, Raina and the rest. Once again, Dravid and the million dollar coach should account for their pathetic display. Since our great worthless coach is not an Indian, he really does not care about Indian public sentiments. Call me crude, I felt he was happy to see Australia win.

Pointing was seen animated and of course! misbehaving with the umpire when during Sachin recall drama. Umpire was well within his rights to recall. What Ponting did was a clear Dissent. However ICC , has cleared Ponting from Dissent. Match referee none other than Chris the Broad Minded B..D cleared him. The fact stands good - ICC is partial to some countries. Thats all for Cricket for now.

Watched a great Tamil movie called "Thimiru" , honestly why do they make such films and waste money?. Throwing money into a river is considered a better usage. There is a great song in this movie - I want all the Tamil pundits to listen to it - Jil endru oru kathal is definitely Sentamz when compared to it, the first 4 lines in the pallavi comes with 20 million mistakes , while the singer uses freely keyless entries and exists through out the track. Gowdamani style sonna IOOODA SAMI.

ps: Golu is is full swing, I will upload some pictures tomorrow.
