you merely have big numbers against your name India played five bowlers in a game and got murdered; and Dhoni probably thought it doesn’t really matter if I am increasing the numbers but not getting a better attack The point about the rain against Australia was valid but it cannot mask a greater truth There were people on that bench that the captain wasn’t excited about You always judge a team by the strength of its bench and there wasn’t a bowler there who was forcing the captain to pick him MaybeHarbhajan deserved another game but that’s really it It was India’s batting that should have instilled fear and I am not sure it did Experience wasn’t an issuein fact apart from Virat Kohlithe entire batting unit is from a pre-IPL erait has been around for a long time I just wonder though if India’s cricketersincluding the captainaren’t jaded Sometimes you aren’t physically tired just lacklustrethe desire dullsyou aren’t as excited about being on the park I looked at Virat Kohli and I saw optimismfirecockinessdisappointmentpain…everything was on display and that is not something you can do for the cameras Kohli was the kid who just wanted to be there It could be because he was in formbecause that is his personalitywhatever And that is why teams must always have enough people desperate to make a markthey must ideally outnumber those are anxious to keep their place That is why I wonder if it may not be a bad idea to start building a young squad around Kohli There are such few T20 internationals that you can actually give people a break and let a busy young group of people feel their way and make a statement The next World T20 isn’t for another two years and at least four or five from this team aren’t going to be there It might be a good time to try out a young lotsearch for players who are hungrywho are different and whomore than anything elseare livewires on the field Maybe look for a Naman Ojhaa Menariaa Rayudu (who isn’t the youngest but is hungry)a Binny maybe Certainly a Rahane It will also force people to search for bowlers who are different The IPL should have thrown a few by now Reallyapart from Ashwin andto some extentJadejathere hasn’t been much emerging from there Or maybe they just aren’t there because the standard of Indian players in the IPL isn’t good enough You need a minimum of 80 Indian players and there aren’t that many in India InevitablythereforeIndia will become a condition specific bowling unitonly capable of winning if the pitch is a steadfast friend There will now be four test matches on tracks made for India’s spinners You must seek to win at home but must be careful that that is not the only way you can win The new selectors have a test team to pick and that won’t be a difficult exercise But I will be waiting to see a new direction in the team they select for the two T20 games against England The schedule and the timing is perfect to launch a search for freshness. 2013 12:11 am Related News It is easy to forget that behind the icon there is a private man As much loved icon Nelson Mandela hovers in the twilight zone between life and death, IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Published: December 19, there was no major Hindi movie release this weekend.
