why do you think pathan is not given a chance . he has not played in world cup matches also... do you think Rahul Dravid dont want him in the team....or the Selectors dont want him... does his carrier in cricket will end ?

I think Irfan has been given enough chances in the last few months but he just hasn't shown the kind of form that he showed at the start of his career. Besides, due to India's debacle in the World Cup, now selectors are looking to give chances to other people who have been doing well in domestic cricket. I think Irfan will have to do what Zaheer did, that is to do well in domestic cricket and force his way into the team on the basis of strong performances. I don't think Dravid hates him or anything. Its just that right now he isn't in good form. But I think he is a very talented cricketer and has a bright future in the game. Probably this experience of staying out of the team will make him mentally stronger and he will understand how difficult it is at the highest level and it will make him value his place in the side the next time he plays for India.

Friend i must tell you that Irfan Pathan is not a old player he has just been made sit out of the tournaments because he is not in the form,and others who are deserving chances are being included in the team, even sachin and ganguly had also been not included in the odi team.this doesn't means that their career is over.this is just a game and many talented players are being ruined by the politics of this cricket,but now better that upcoming players who are talented are being included in the team.its not rahul dravid nor the selectors who ruins the career buddy but only the player himself.
