while the whatmore is easily recognizable, and Younis recognizable aftera bit struggle, Gul is lot difficult to make out from the cartoon. I keep on wondering why Satish does not put the names. It has been problem with Satish's cartoons most of the times. many a times, when guessing takes a lot of time, it takes toll on the humour behind the cartoon. Satish, why don't you add either tags or if not tags, a comment of your own to show the intended parties in the cartoon?

It appears from the cartoon that both Umar Gul and Younus Khan have been dropped due to their dismal performance. The reality is Umar Gul has been rested because of heavy load of intl' cricket whereas Younus Khan has been genuinely dropped due to his poor performances in the recent past.
