Hmmm Saurav Ganguly
It seems Saurav was asked by Chappel to step down before the first test in Harare. It is surprising considering the camraderie these two had earlier! But I still think that though Gangulay is at the end of his career, there is no one suitable to replace him. We can blood youngsters but they should show some potential atleast. I guess players like Azharuddin and Siddhu lasted such a long time as there was no one to replace them or seriously trying to upstage them. Thats the biggest irony of Indian Cricket - its unlike Australia where the selectors ask you to get going before you know you are down the hill. Dont believe me? Ask Alan Border, Mark Taylor or Steve Waugh!
