Acording to me it was Shehwag, Dhoni, and some bad decisions that team management made.

I think its the complete failure of indian batting that has led to the demise of this team in recent matches. I don't think indian team has gone to south africa with such superior bowling attack before. But sadly batting failed miserably on this tour. We can put fingers on sehwag for not giving good starts but almost evryone has under performed by their reputations. Though sehwag is to be criticised more because he has not performed for a long time. I don't even remember when was the last time he won india a match.

i think the main mistake was selection of team for third test they should droped sewag and also theyshouldnt have selected the injured munaf patel. they should have gone for harbhanjan sighn.

hey sorry to just distract you but you know what i would like to say that now india is at the peak of its what we say bad form and it is not only that any of the one person is responsible for it. whether the qestion is: Q.should sourav be made the captain of the team? Q.is sourav giving the team what people were expecting after his come back? Q.sehwag is not playing good? Q.tendulkar out of form? Q.dravid took this or that decision wrong? Q.the coach is not good? Q.the coach is more a politician? Q.wrong decision of the board of taking this bowler in the team whereas the other one was required? Q.coach taking gangully case personal? ...... and many mre do not you people think that all what is happening is not good and what these people are doing is just decreasing their world cup chances? do not you think that it is not the problem with one person whole team is responsible? wrong strategies,bad form... what is this is this what indian team has to show to the world that we are the one?

I THINK IF ANIL KUMBE WAS BROUGHT TO ATTACK BY DRAVID AT RIGHT TIMES WE COULD HAVE WON THE TEST SERIES..AND THE BATTING BY DHONI,SEHWAG AND DRAVID SHOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER..BOWLING BY SREESHANTH AND ZAHERR KHAN WAS TOO GOOD BUT MUNAF PATEL AND OTHERS WERE NOT UPTO THE MARK.. THE BATTING DEPARTMENT SHOULD WORK MORE HARD TO WIN THE MATCHES OR ELSE THE WORLDCUP WILL JUST BE A DREAM FOR THE INDIAN CRICKET TEAM!!! GOOD TO SEE SACHIN AND GANGULY BACK TO FORM..AND I WOULD LOVE TO SEE SEHWAG AND DHONI BACK TOO... AND IN BOWLING HARBHAJAN SHOULD ALSO BE THERE...ALONG WITH THE MASTER KUMBLE.. SACHIN TENDULKAR HAS SHOWN GOOD SIGNS OF COMEBACK AND I A M SURE THAT HE WILL BLAST ON THIS WORLD CUP AND HE WILL SURELY GET US THE CUP.. ALL THE BEST FOR THE INDIAN TEAM...

According to me the faliure of the top order was the main culprit in lossing the test series.Moreover it was also a chance of luck.The Indian team was also used a lot of experiments which also plays a leading role in the series loss.

All the batsmen played so horibally at crucial stages of matches ...so it was batsmen's mistake for Indias rout in the recent Indo-Sa series

According to me it was definetly Virender Sehwag,Sachin Tendulkar , anil kumble and M.s dhoni according to me 1)virender sehwag's performace itself says that he doesn't deservers to be in the team... 2)Sachin tendulkar is now old and cannot bear the burden of the indian team as used used to do earlier 3)anil kumble has also been out of form 4)and mahender singh dhoni diidn't performed upto his own level

No, it has to be 'tokku master' Dravid and 'shorty' Tendulkar for their negative batting in the final test. Can you imagine these 'world champions' not being confident against rookee spinner Harris?

The failure of the top order was the primary reason for India's shameful defeat in south africa.also some bad umpiring decisions added to the pain.i dont know why the hell dont they make use of technology for close calls.everytime its bad luck for sachin tendulkar.he's caught lbw for the ball which is leaving the stumps.this really gets on to my nerves.
