Reasons for Indian Failure
February 8, 2010 4:28am CST
1. Poor selection of team. it is a fact that the Indian side is hit by injuries but i never knew V. Kohli carried an injury neither did Karthik. 2. Poor usage of players. Saha is an excellent keeper and an average batsman. Dhoni needed to stay free of fatigue. Keeping glows should have been given to Saha. If Dhoni did not have confidence in Saha. He should not have picked him. Badrinath is a handy leg spinner. He was not given even a thin chance to bowl. 3. India doesn't have a match winning spinner and a true turner of the ball. Indian spinners couldn't dismiss SA on a track which is turning on the second day itself. 4. It has to be accepted that Dale Steyn was too hot for the Indians to handle. 5. Indians lack in every department 6. Last but not the least, M. S. Dhoni's beginners luck is gone. By, An Indian fan who is hoping still for an Indian victory. My message to Indian cricket team, Guys please play like champs, please.

The point u are mentioned for the reasons of Indian failure is mostly correct one. But i think the selection of team is main cause of Indian failure because all the big players are hit by injury. There is very few player who can stay in the pitch for a long time to face dale steyn. I didn't think India team can save this test match.

ya i agree with you. but do you know that dhoni have never lost a test under his captaincy, so lets hope that record stays intact. the main reason i belive is the poor squad selection, because it should have been a 16 member squad in the absence or injury condition of senior players. and missing virat koli and partiv patel/karthik in squad is a real blunder.

I accept your comments there is weak point on bowlers that's why India in trouble,and also the batting of Indian team is not good,they must improve their performance,then only India can defeat the south Africa,otherwise they will lose this series,so,this is my view about this discussion and have a nice day my lotter.

I do agree with you. Mainly the spin department is very weak. No bowler is capable of troubling the opponents. And in fast bowling they select Ishant even if he is not in form. Mithun was in great form during the Ranji season so they could have given him a chance. And the same with Tyagi, they select him but don't allow him to play in the final eleven. At least, if India loses this match, they will get some sense and act reasonably. Hope players fight it out in the second innings! Happy Mylotting!
