Its a great cartoon. What a character this fellow Amarnath is. Killing the team spirit right before a crucial test match. Good one Satish.

@ EMADTHEGREAT Players like Afridi and Sachin can never be dropped. I mean how many players hold fastest century world records and how many players can score 200 in an ODI?

@agupta429 ... agreed ... I am only asking anyone to explain what the cartoon intends to prove?

Dhoni is basically saying the selectors should not show character and drop him from team/captaincy... He is refuting Amarnath here... Good one Satish

Selectors of Pakistan are also showing attitude by dropping Afridi.

BTW..Amarnath is not a selector now... You can do it better Satish
