Shastri is in talks with Dave Whatmore to take over as the coach of India after this series. What are your opinions on the same? Do you think he is the right choice? Cheers! Ram

though coach is important whatever the players has to perform what matters is how they plays in the maidan other than in the practice session where coach plays an important role.i think whoever be the coach players should take up the responsibility and whatever problem outside shouldn o t affect the game

That's absolutely true. The coach can only provide guidance, the performance is from the players alone. Cheers! Ram

I am not a sports buff! Especially cricket! I just watch the sport when India plays and I enjoy the game! But otherwise I am not really not crazy as many people who keep statistics of players and they keep a track of the things going in India Cricket! But even then, today having lost the World Cup tournament miserably, I think its time to review our selves and think twice before appointing any foreign Coach! Don't we have a capable Coach in India? Are our players not capable to make runs and take wickets with the statistics what they are having for their credit? Now having undergone a big disaster the top notched players of Indian team they are saying that Greg Chappell never used to talk with these players at all! If a coach is not in talking terms with big players of the team who are the pillars of the team , then how can one expect the team to win for him? Recall the adamancy showed by Greg Chappell when Ganguly was sacked ! He played politics in the team for captaincy and spread a atmosphere of hostility in the team itself! Don't you think history has repeated myself and we Indians again have fallen prey to a foreigner who came divided , rules , made profit and walked away by showing a finger to us? In my opinion . like Kapil Dev says, its always better to have an Indian Coach who can keep our integrity intact and that's what is need for Indian Team, as we are otherwise no way less than any team in the world, with the quality of players we are having with us in Indian team! I have put forth my opinion with what ever knowledge I am having with me and it is purely my personal opinion and it may not appeal to every one! Thanks for initiating such a though provoking discussion!
