Cricket


There are indications that as it always happens always with cricket in India, a stop gap solution would be found with a compromise formula. It would be a triumph of mediocrity over justice if there is a compromise and Ganguly retains his place and the captainship of the Indian cricket team.

Update: 10:30 p.m.
The English language has got a new definition for miscommunication. It is a 6-page confidential email, written by a coach to the cricket board, and leaked by it to divert attention from its wrongdoings and mismanagement.

Thank God the Indian selection committee and the cricket board has got nothing to do with education or the software industry. By the way, these guys can be effective HR guys.

The BCCI meeting, as expected, washed the whole episode off with a contrived compromise asking Ganguly-Chappell to work together for the benefit of Indian cricket.

If Greg Chappell has self respect he should quit the job. The Indian cricket team doesn't deserve his services. India deserves a hopeless cricket captain and they've got one.
