Unmesh, Srikanth, the selector didn't do that bad either. The only mistakes he did were giving prolonged opportunities to the spinner from Tamil Nadu on the Australian tracks when Pragyan Ojha would've made a big big difference. We needed wickets desperately. Well, the rotation policy in Australia is more of a Dhoni's work than Srikanth's. He selects the squad is all he does. The Sehwag rest for Asia cup, well, that is not really a mistake. May be he really needed rest. I would like to be informed if he really did any big mistakes in Team selection.

@Astonished Arsi watch the WC 1983 Final. He was the highest scorer for India with his 'illogical shots'.

I really liked Srikanth as a batsman. In the era when most batsmen played defensively, he was like somebody from another planet..he was very unpredictable. He is unpredictable as a selector too, but not in a good way! As much I liked Srikanth-the batsman, I dislike Srikanth-the selector. This is a hilarious cartoon though.

Illogical shots often caught. That why you have test and ODIs averages in 20s.
