Why Team India Thrown Out?

Buzz this
What we predicted has happened. Indian Cricket team has been thrown out of the Tri-series in Zimbabwe, quite convincingly. The host Zimbabwe has beaten India twice in a week to remove Team India’s chances of playing final of the series.

So, what went wrong with Indian team? As we have already discussed in our previous post, the selection of team India was the main cause of the team’s dismal show. The team comprised of all youngsters with no big names. The most shocking decision was to exclude the skipper, MS Dhoni. The selection was pathetic.

However, I support the idea behind the selection, to give chance to the youngsters ahead of Asia Cup-2010. But the way this idea was executed, was absolutely unacceptable. You just cannot afford the risk of playing all the young 11, without any experience, and most importantly, under a very inexperience captain.

I also feel sorry for the youngsters who played in the tri-series. They were put under enormous pressure, with inexperience captain, and without any experience players to learn from. This might just ruin the future of these young Indian players.

This decision of excluding all the big names has backfired. India has lost the 2nd position in the ODIs and has moved to the
3rd spot. More importantly, Team India has lost the winning momentum which they have been maintaining for the last few months. Apart from T20 world cup-2010, Indian team’s performance has been exceptional.

Now, it will be difficult for the team India to get onto the track of victory again. Only time will tell, how the MS Dhoni men will be able to cop up with the challenges ahead.

The next big event for India is the Asia Cup-2010, starting from June 15 in Sri Lanka. The tournament features all the Test playing Asian teams including, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Team India has also announced the 15-member squad for the Asia Cup. Not surprisingly, Yuvraj Singh has been dropped from the squad. Yousaf Pathan also could not make it into the 15-men team.  Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar has also been rested for the Asia Cup, which is unfortunate.

The Indian team for Asia Cup-2010 includes: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Praveen Kumar, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Pragyan Ojha, Ashok Dinda, R. Ashwin, Saurabh Tiwary.

Your Turn Now:  How do you see the Team India’s demotion to 3rd Spot in ODIs? Do you think the decision of dropping Yuvraj Singh is justified? Should Sachin Tendulkar have been selected for the Asia Cup? Or Anything Else…Tell in your COMMENTS!
