We don't want seniors in Team India?
Just a year back Sourav Ganguly was forced to retire from cricket and there was also the discussion over whether our seniors like Rahul, Sachin or Laxman should continue cricket or retire, excuse given was that they are old and not agile, not good fielders,etc. but in last four days we found how important our seniors are. Had Sourav Ganguly not forced to retire he must have played Test Match against South Africa because last time against South Africa Sourav played some important innings both at home and away. We would not have missed injury hit seniors that much because atleast we had two vastly experienced players in middle order but such is the attitude of our selectors and captain who don't want experience in the team. In one-dayers we missed exprience of Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid very much as we lost most of the final matches because of temperament of our young players who often need guidance of seniors. I hope now selectors and captain must have understood the importance of seniors and now onwards they treat them with respect.
