Dalmiya Steps Up, Pawar on the Backfoot!

The India cricket “circus” is in full cry. On the field the team is being routed without mercy by the South Africans. Off the field, the politicians back in India have stepped firmly into the ring to join the discussion. The most recent entrant being Jaggu (Dalmiya) himself. Sensing that his nemesis Sharad Pawar was on the backfoot (given India’s performance, the recent ruckus in Parliament both prior and after Chappell’s comments etc.), Dalmiya has demanded the return of Ganguly. Its interesting to note that Dada himself had fallen out with Dalmiya earlier and had openly campaigned for Dalmiya’s openent in the CAB elections.

The bad news for Team India of course is that its mainstay Dravid is ruled out of the next two ODIs and the out of form Viru has been asked to lead. VVS , meanwhile, gets a last chance to stake his for a World Cup slot.

    Oy Pran,

    Got a hold of John Wright’s “Indian Summers” when I was in India last week. Terrific book. Very easy to read and gives insight into a lot of things that happen at BCCI. Remind me to loan it to you the next time we meet for lunch. You might enjoy it.
