We have not adapted to the overseas conditions as yet. And seniors like viru and sachin have not contributed anything so far. The youngsters have been really very poor apart from Kohli and Dhoni still continues to back them as every captain must do. Am surprised to see Dhoni batting at number 6. He has been a consistent run getter in this series and i want him to bat at the top of the order. The bowling is doing no good as it was apparent from last match Viru giving the final overs to part timers. this shows the lack of confidence in the regular fast bowlers. But when we think about the last time when CB series was held in 2008, India were in a similar position. They started as undergoes and finally Gambhir and Dhoni helped India in reaching the final and Sachin ensured that we won the Tournament. Can we hope for the same turnaround even this time???

what i think is completely different from others . I know i am getting a bit selfish but this is what i think is correct. Well , i think that india is moving well with strategies in batting as well as bowling but what is missing is an agressive intent or you can say other thing that is their lucky charm . They need a bit of luck to go their way . I am sure if Vinay Kumar or Umesh yadav if Sreesanth would have played ya he would also have given 58 runs in 8 overs as umesh yadav gave but he would surely have got wickets as well as he brings luck to the team which is the most important thing missing in the indian team right now . what are your thoughts about this

Probably their next strategy would be to do a shopping for returning home, going to pubs, and having fun around. Every team other than India has a strategy. And Indians have the strategy of not having a strategy. At any point all along the tour, they never came up with any strategy. Only in the matches when opponents played badly, Indians have won. There are lot of wasteful players. (Raina, Rohit, Vinay and Jadeja are total waste. Ashwin is 50% waste.)

I believe the team is demoralized. Part of the reason is that seniors are not vacating their berth for the younger players. Effectively, the younger ones have little choice but to try to impress the selectors within the few opportunities that come their way. Therefore, it is not surprising that their performances are also not upto mark. They are tense because if they fail to impress they wont be selected in the next round. But if established players like Sehwag, Tendulkar, Dravid, and VVS fail, selectors would overlook such things. We need a standard actually. Opening batsmen should not get out before 50 runs in three consecutive matches. If they do, they should be dropped. One down and two down ditto. Three down and four down 35 each, while five down and six down 30 each. Rest are there to help us survive should others fail. Again average number of runs in the year should be considered. For this, the year should refer to the player's year and not the calendar year or season. This average for Opening batsmen, one down, and two down should be more than 50. Fitness matters of course. Reflexes too. But going the statistics way will make it difficult for the selectors to justify inclusion of players who are not in form.
