India’s Younger Generation

Give them time, I say. M. Vijay threw away good starts, as did S. Badrinath, but they both looked solid enough to merit places in the squad. I’m still unsure how the team will accommodate them as time goes on; I’d rather not have a situation where Dravid and Laxman are missing again at the same time.

Perhaps if Laxman moves up to No. 3 when Dravid eventually retires (he’s 37 now), that will give the younger ‘uns space to breathe in the middle order, nuzzled among the likes of Tendulkar and Dhoni. But these newbies will have to answer a generational challenge that few have matched before. Across the world, we will soon see the end of Kallis, Ponting, Dravid, Tendulkar. Is this the end of the batting wave? Will bowlers finally have their time on the pitch?

    DB,

    Always wanted to ask you if you have a twitter account? Like Prem, cwb and Dileep. It would be so nice to interact with you on twitter about cricket.

    For me, i think cricket is one game that sends adrenalin through ones spine. When it comes to both India and South Africa. I consider those two to be the best teams in the world.

  3. Great information! I have been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!
