to lead the team. It defies logic that despite stating during the England tour that he’d have to retire from Test cricket for leading the Indian team in the shorter version, the people managing Indian cricket refused to take cognisance of the same. Why? Is Dhoni as great as Mike Brearley to find a place in the Test team despite his pathetic performance as a player in the recent past? Accountability has never been the cornerstone of Indian cricket. Else, players like Zaheer Khan, Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh and MS Dhoni would at least be taking a sabbatical to set things right with their game. It seems the Indian obsession with creating records is coming in way of the game of cricket. And what to talk to records? Remember, the great Kapil Dev prolonged his career to break Sir Richard Hadlee’s record. And then Kapil’s record was eclipsed soon enough! It seems the Indian team needs to told: “Think game, not records.” Else, the 2011 Cricket World Cup win will go down the annals of history as a fluke.
