Ind 249/8 | Aus 252/4 -- What is killing Indian Cricket?



Imagine- India winning all league matches and sailing smoothly into semis and then on to finals. Imagine India winning the final match to become champion.
Not able to imagine? It is not your fault. Indian cricket lovers are into an habit of watching India buckle under pressure and then losing crucial matches. Indian tigers who flicker in one or two matches do not perform when it is most needed. Sachin is great, Rahul is best, Sehvag is cool and Dhoni is supercool; But India is still not the champion.

What does India lacks? Team spirit? Good bowlers? Good Coach? Killer Instinct? Fitness? Where the answer lies?

खेळाडूंना क़िकेटपेक्षा ज्ञाहिरातीचे जादा उत्‍पन्‍न मिळते. त्‍यामुळे खेळाकडे दुलँक्ष होते.

I think the cricket is played very seriously the team india should not worry about the whys, hows, whens, or whatever, but beat around the ball and not to worry about losing or winning, there is very little time for the world cup and it time just to cool down take it easy, believe in yourself and do your own thing- play cricket and yes no advertisment at all, or play kho-kho.

like Australians, our Indian cricketers should be professionals.

The fault lies in super Guruji, selection commitee and captain of the team. When in India we are strong with googlee bowlers, Ramesh Owar was kept out of team. All should be removed

those who don't performs take them out, poor kaif he is not getting enough chance, now selectors threatend him to perform or leave. Can selector answer what is his fault? and why are they not blamming Sehwag? Kaif's average(42.36) in last five innings is more than sehwag.

The whole Indian team is overrated by the media and commentators.there is no winning spirit left.Till performance is made the sole criteria for selection ,I dont think ourplayers turned models are going to do well.

The selection comitte has bad habit of keeping the players in the team just because they have performed some time back.

This shouldn't be the case. If someone not performing, kick him out ask him to play Ranaji, Dulip, let him perform there and them bring him back. Till that time we can check for our other options.

OR

Select a team which will play throughout the year irrespective of individuals performance BUT if someone fails pay them according to their performances.
