There was news about the last minute replacement of Ojha in the place of Mishra in Indian Team for the second test against Bangladesh. It is said that, Dhoni preferred "Ojha" and Sehwag wanted "Mishra" Considering the performance of Amit Mishra in the first Test (Over all 7 wickets and a half century!) leaving him out is a bit demoralizing to say the least. What more could he have done to keep his place in the team? Though they wanted to experiment, the manner in which his name was removed at the last moment speaks of something else. Favoritism is always a problem and it affects the team. What you think of it? Share your views! Happy Mylotting!

This thing really sucks in case for MS Dhoni,how could he think of such kind of favor for Ojha whereas on the oder side such a big blundere for the carrear of Amit Mishra. Favoritism strikes india everytime.Mishra was faboulus in the 1st test with a half century and 7 wickets.He deserved the name in the list.As on the TV is also seen his name was struck off on the last moment in the list. That was more of an embarrising for such thinking by one of the most successful captain of India.If this goes on India will not sustain on the top rank for more :(

corrrect for test matches spinners need to improve a lot and harbhajan needs some1 to stand beside him to.on the other side i would say amit mishra tried to stand beside him and he got kicked it LOL

Since ages these things are happening everywhere. Ours is not the only country. Dirty minds rules everywhere. We can only feel sorry for the victims and pray for them.

yes it is always observed that there are people who misuse their authority or power. The decisions should be taken on by the reason of justice and reason and not favoritism or interest. Happy Mylotting!

i think droping mishra is not a good decision. he had bowled well in last match . but dhoni is prefering ojha.

Yes dropping Mishra doesn't make any sense unless the decision is a planned one to give Ojha a chance before South Africa Series. But the last minute change indicates it is not a planned or discussed decision! Happy Mylotting!

firstly i would like to say that our indian team was divided as M.S.Dhoni and V.Sehwag .dhoni preferred pragyan ojha and sehwag wanted amit mishra.Of course,in the last minute mishra as dropped and replaced by ojha in the indian team for the second test against Bangladesh.In my view Mishra was also a good spinner as well.But Ojha is a young player and need much practice whereas Mishra played in the first test and scored 50 runs and overall 7 wickets.

I think the exact reason is unknown. May be the team want to give a chance to ojha after they have decide to go with two spinners, when Sreesanth was ruled out. Hope Ojha does a great job and contribute for the team's vitory.

There is no doubt that Ojha is a good bowler. And he also needs chances to prove himself. But the last moment changes are not good, especially when two seniors preferring two different players. And Dhoni using his Captaincy power changing the list at the last moment. This creates misunderstandings and can also affect the unity of the team.

dropping mishra and playing Ojha would not been a big deal at all because mishra is an established bowler.he gives a lot of air and he bounds to give some runs but he also get wickets. now to the discussion.yeah i also heard this BREAKING NEWS that mishra's replacement was a last minute decision even showing the paper where mishra's name was scrapped. lets say i am a lil disappointed.telling a guy that he did well in the last test and we wanna give the youngster ojha another chance so take a break for this match is totally different from scrapping his name at the last moment. it just gives the impression that whether you perform or not,we are gonna axe you. not good if you wanna be called the numero uno team

Yes, giving a break after discussing together is different and just swapping the names at the last minute is different. It shows the lack of good communication in the team.

This is the problem with India. Nowhere else in the world, such sort of things happen.After scoring a match saving 50 runs in the second innings and taking 7 wickets, Mishra is dropped. When YuvarajSingh is given so many chances, when he has consistently failed, why should a success like Mishra be dropped. Dhoni is on a high now days and he can do what ever he likes and get away with it. It shows the arrogance of the man, and I feel the power has just gone to his head.

At least they should discuss before doing any changes in the final 11 players to play. Last minute changes are not good and it also shows the team lacks unity and good communication.
