India A in West Indies 2012

Why not Harbhajan Singh for India A?

Apr 29, 2012: While the batsmen picked in the India A squad for the summer's tour of the West Indies show a move in one definite direction, the bowling ensemble seems to indicate a bit of jumbled thinking on the selectors' part

A cricketer most evolved

Aakash Chopra

Why bring the spirit of the game into it?

Mar 8, 2012: When India appealed for run-out against a non-striker who was backing up, and against a batsman who touched the ball with his hand, they were following the laws. How can that be morally wrong?

A tale of three legspinners
