    Columns by Inzamam, Srinath, Woolmer, Ganguly and Greg Chappell

    Inzamam feels that Pakistan's victory was primarily due to hard work & working as a team.

    Srinath is concerned about the showing by India's quick bowlers and is aghast at the unprofessionalism wherein the coach has quit and nobody has a clue about who the captain is. Come on, Sri. You dont expect the BCCI to have a modicum of professionalism, do you?!

    Bob Woolmer is all praise for Sehwag and talks in depth about his technique and his ability to dominate opponents. He does compare him to some pretty big names in the game. I think he is quite surprised about how Sehwag's performances in one-day cricket do not reflect his test cricket performances. Perhaps he's asked for it. We'll find out in Jan 2006.

    Ganguly is in favour of having better wickets for one-day games in India, which would be useful to the Indian bowlers and batsmen since they will have to adapt accordingly.

    Greg Chappell, whose hat is very much in the ring, not surprisingly says things similar to Ganguly, about not having a knee-jerk reaction, and instead feels that a period of rest would do the Indian team a lot of good. Not if the BCCI has its way, Greg!

    Excellent article in Hindu by Ganguly (the one you have linked to)! I ahve always been impressed by the off-field analysis of Ganguly.

    His approach is no-nonsense and direct to the point. He identified the right issues; pitches suitable for batting (something I also pointed some time back in my blog, that this Indian team is not suited for winning on typical subcontinent pitches) and nice strong-charactered coach.

    I also feel that there is an additional pitch related dilemma with this Indian team ! They have a test setup which will do well on typical Indian pitches, while the ODI team will do well on pitches abroad. I know it may sound ridiculous, but thats what I see and analyse !
