two great debutants seen in d last 2 weeks Hamish Rutherford n Shikhar Dhawan

Dhawan has made a fantastic debut, and based on what I read in an article in TOI wherein the selectors want Sehwag to improve his attitude and for the time being have decided to restrict Gambhir to ODI's, I think they have finally gotten it right.

Prior to Dhawan's innings, Laxman thought that Sehwag was just about to hit form and it was wrong to drop him. After Dhawan's innings Dravid in his interview was quick to clarify that celebrate Dhawan's innings today but just based on one innings he is not a great like Sehwag yet. Now both of these people are obviously attached to their former team mate and might have made valid points. It may also be argued that Sehwag and Gambhir still have talent and a few years left in them.

Plus who knows, Dhawan might fail in his first trip to South Africa and England and it is premature to make him a God based on one innings. But I will still insist on making Dhawan the first choice opener for South Africa and England with Sehwag as the reserve

Rahul needs to get closer to the microphone and maybe speak a little loudly so that we can get a better quality recording.

What is the point of having a video when you cant even hear Dravid's voice properly. The quality is pathetic!

Agree, and we need to see also that Australian and world cricket doesn't find a strong weakness (like short ball for Kambli) in his batting....... Though lets enjoy another record in name of an Indian.......... :)

@Bipin I don't think nowadays Australia is the greatest team... they are the weakest Australian team ever

records upon records are being made and its against one of the greatest team ever.. so its a good kind of cricket that India is playing so far.
