definitely if you are talking about rahul dravid, he is THE sportsman who can make a come back in indian team even in his 40s. this lack of consistancy has everything to do with his present state of mind rather than the so called 'old age' syndromme in cricket. age does not matter for this class player. eagerly awaiting a long innings.
It is one thng to register wins from the get go on foerign slois but how can one call themself # uno rank team - If they struggle all the time on its own docile pitches against the competetion which is not at its prime.
This crucial postion of batting @ 1 down has been let go for last years. Question would be why? As much India is appreciative of his contribution in the past.Why cannot we come to terms that His time is OVer. After all Hayden (Prolific opener was forced to retire after only few failures). Also Immaturity of Selectors parts to select out of form Ghambir over In-Form Vijay in the first test. Beside Pathetic #uno Indian Test Cricket team - STruggle in first test on flat pitch in their own backyard and struggeling again in 2nd test against a 2nd string Bowling attack. By the regarding another headline "SRT lately @ his ever best " - For whom? Cannot expect from him when it matters or when it is really expected of him? - SHame on these Multi Millionaires - DHoni, SRT, Dravid
Manjerekar , Always biased and here he says with one good knock recently , Dravid have only a mental problem, I guess Dravid is out of form and age is started affecting his game.
Sanjay has gone wrong in all his judgment in this series, see his previos articles, he said First test heading for a Draw But India won if not Aussies surely had won, So there was a result. Again he said Aussie batting a worry, but they post 478 in first test ,
Cricinfo please scrap him he is not a good commentator, He only things commentating in India is only criticising Sachin and Get media attention.
dravid is in the worst slump of his career. I think he is one of the best batsman of his generation. he should remove his mental models and just go out there and try to score fast rather than grind. Iam just worried that he may end up with an average less than 50 at the end of his career. lets not hope for his sake.
yep he needs to sort his off stump issue needs loads of time on the net and i guess he should be facin zaheer most times cos he's also a left seamer.....once he gets tht right he'd be getting more runs ......just one innings more needed if he does it well in the 2nd innings well than gud or else he'd have to wait for the nz series
