    God or whoever, make the axe fall away from Ganguly!

    Now that the Indian team showed their spineless back and lost shamefully on day 4 at Karachi, the question arises about who the culprits are and some would be dropped for their below-par performances for the next Test India plays. Let me just voice down my list.

    The above list is only about the XI that played in Karachi. Harbhajan Singh alone manages to find a spot there as that expectation suits him very well.

    I really fear that Ganguly would be dropped from the side for the England series citing that he failed in Karachi, but you have to remember that it was the first time he got to bat in the series.

    well for once i find someone with a similar view of Tendulkar.he may get runs in Test but he is unlikely to win any Tests for India.
    In one day things are not vaguely different either.

    Well said. It is time we give a serious thought to the Indian teams that sans Tendulkar. It was once again poor timing on part of the selectors and Pawar and co. to announce the team for the one dayers even before the test series was over. Laxman looked like a pedestrian in comparison to the last tour to Pakistan. Sehwag can play his natural game but the failure rate is too high for comfort.

    Not really! Tendulkar in fact was very fluent in both the innings before he got out. His leaving the ball on offside was exceptionally good ( not so on the leg side when you see Fisalabad test) and he has to be given another series against England. Laxman certainly has no place anymore in this team.!

    Gana: not just the offside, even the ones directed at the stumps, he left it pretty well in both the innings ;)

    aren't we all going overboard. come on, let us just whip pakistan 4-1 in the one-dayers, england 2-0 in the tests and 5-2 in the one-dayers and just forget about karachi ;)
