Where's India's next generation coming from?

After India's twin debacles in England and Australia, Makarand Waingankar in The Hindu asks if there are any solutions in sight to improve Indian cricket

After India's twin debacles in England and Australia, Makarand Waingankar in The Hindu asks if there are any solutions in sight to improve Indian cricket. The Talent Resource Development Wing (TRDW) which was successful at one time in fast-tracking Indian players, was inexplicably scrapped.
The BCCI must appoint a fact finding committee under Ganguly. As he is still playing, he will know the ground realities and can decide better. He should be allowed to choose his committee members and present his report of solutions in two months. Asking seniors to retire is no solution. We need to find replacements and start India ‘A' tours immediately.
In the same newspaper, former Australia captain Greg Chappell writes that until fielding and fitness are given more importance, India cannot be successful.
Before the series there appeared to be very little between the two teams but, once they walked out onto the MCG, it was obvious that Australia was the team prepared to do the hard work necessary to win.
Successful teams are just that, a team. They bat and bowl in partnerships and they support their bowlers with a committed fielding effort that leverages the bowling performance
