Its not a great period for Indian cricket as it was earlier, the uno ranked team is getting all sort of set backs to get tormented at the hands of the English lions.Whatever the legends or the older ones of cricket are finding for the loss, may it be the amount of cricket they played or the injury or the lack of preparation. lets make an analysis of what could have played a spoilsport behind the media glares and the fame&money they been getting.
First, the main reason for the WC glory could be sub-continent factor, we were not the the best when it comes to seaming wickets and blowing wind. Men in blue were really the tigers when it comes to their own hunting ground, so hunted mercilessly their opponents.
secondly the uno ranking we achieved is because of the laurels created by the greats of the cricket, who were presently part of it too.
keeping in mind of these two factors, lets analyze from a point of a fellow Indian fan who would like to see them Coming out of the Blue to tornish the english reputation.
lets think about the fatigue factor, we can we by this way as we been playing non stop since world cup, ipl, windies , then england, so there was some amount of fatigue caused to the players, but we shouldn't forget that the players have their own rights to opt out of the match including the star-dusted captain. so we can't complain on this side.
If it is said so, then its the wrong decision of board, team to implement a rotation policy.
secondly injury, most of them say injuries are part of life. ofcourse its of part of game to get injured, but opting to play before getting fit is the worst thing of the game. even when the players are not fully fit, how he can be allowed to participate in a test match, that too when he had already opted out of a tour match after having strain or something like that.
Secondly sending a player as a replacement when he hasn't played any form of cricket for some time, just for a solo reason of having performed in those conditions when the team visited previously. then sending a specialist in the other departmernt for an injured specialist of another department.
Thirdly lack of preparation, its been said that we have to play atleast three tour games before a match to adopt to the playing conditions there, remember suffering against newzealand last time in their grounds. only young players are playing tour matches, the playing XI should be playing the matches for sure.
After all these rather than having the board on top of the money makers of the game, try to increase the bench strength and choose players wisely using a rotational policy. Stop playing the politics inside boards, make it under the RTI act. if u say u don't get any funds from government, then don't expect tax benefits for IPL. Arrange for your own security, have a team after something, not on our country. If the team is representing India, then it should under the eyes of the people.let the power be on the hands of politicians or sports governing bodies, what we need is the transparency in each and every matches being conducted, etc. if its a Indian team, then "IT SHOULD BE UNDER RTI ACT".Raise against corruption, save India.
