Evolving times in Indian Cricket

July 1, 2008 @ One Comment

Indian cricket and BCCI is living through times that probably indicate a change in outlook and expectations. Post the super success of the IPL, BCCI is laden with public expectations of improving the state of cricket at the domestic and absolute grass root levels, which off course everyone believes is its core responsibility. There are fresh hopes for better stadiums, better talent search and development programmes for budding players and there is no doubt about BCCI’s ability to plan and deliver post the IPL, but its core responsibility needs someone like Lalit Modi to take charge and execute.

As far as the team is concerned, post the highly successful Australian tour & exemplary perfomances in the IPL by star players, fresh hopes are being harboured by all with regards to domination in both one day format. The team is silently witnessing the break from the Ganguly-Dravid era and its likely that these stalwarts may not play for India again in ODIs & Twenty20. The team is bubbling with fresh and young talent who are being complemented by reborn players like Sehwag, Gambhir, Irfan and modern day stars like Dhoni and Yuvraj.

Its only in the Indian Test team that time seems to stand still. The Fab Four will continue to be at the helm of things in the middle order & Kumble and Zaheer will continue to be the bowling spearheads.

All this means we are in midst of a major change in Indian Cricket …… while ironically we seem to resent change !!
