The comment what I thought important is this : I read one of your mind working body not working stuff. Here again you erred on what is towards pshycology, philosophy but they admit that they have no solution. Your comment was from one view which is discredited. In India all these mind talk is bogus, everybody says this, few are english/philosophy graduates to give a background, few silent ones among them have some introspection on this stuff, so everyone talks confidently, but it doesn't work.

On Yuvi being out, you mentioned "Lack of talent? Deficiency in character? "... actually it is none of these. Even it is not about planning 75 balls 50, the doing 50 balls 50, then doing 40 balls 50 etc. It is something about lack of cordination between focus, feeling and thoughts. In the socialist and mechanistic envs, this aspect is not considered, though culturally we should be able to do it. It is very easy to disturb this aspect ... all this if we discount a good ball that genuinely overpowers the batsman. Personally I thought Dravid was going towards the disaster when they collected those singles. Ranatunga is right one this, One can hit Vaas, Murli, but when one is having problem with lesser mortals in hitting 6 runs an over, scoring to Vass is much risky. So Dravid should have picked the panic button around 30 overs, Dhoni should have been promoted ahead of Kaif, they should have demoralized them into a hopeless position with asking run rate of less than 5 for the last 10 overs. It is different that Flintoff, Ponting, Arnold etc can up the scoring rate, I think Dhoni and shehwag can do too without much risks, when they are settled. The idea of coming at the top and batting through 50 overs is destructive, Instead they should bat like a batsman, taking maximum burden and doing the difficult things. Instead in a screwed up logic, they keep the runrate high for the tailenders. Somebody is giving them wrong ideas, this is merely my opinion. AGain there are stuff beyond ideas, that is conveyed differently.

This is not to start off pro and anti SG comments again but who, in your honest opinion, should captain India keeping in mind WC 2007 and the possiblility of Ganguly's form dipping even further?
