Dravid and men in blue: leaving on World Cup mission

By John Cheeran
Indian cricket team is leaving on mission World Cup today.
Let’s hope Rahul Dravid and boys stay back at least for the Super Eight stage. Well, in 2003, our the young men from Pakistan were in a hurry so that they had to come back before the Super Eight began.
Giving logic its space, one should admit that anything is possible. Such as India sinking without a trace in the Bermuda Triangle.
Also without reasons or rhyme are the World Cup commentaries given by former cricketers.
Go near a veteran cricketer with a microphone and lo, behold, his jaws will open. Kapil Dev, the man who led India to their lone World Cup triumph in 1983, has now found it strange that Sachin Tendulkar is the vice-captain of the World Cup team.
Indian cricket board has taken its decision to make Tendulkar the vice-captain much earlier and why is Kapil quibbling about it?
What’s Kapil’s problem when Tendulkar himself has no problem in being the vice-captain?
And I believe, Kapil wants Sourav Ganguly as deputy to Rahul Dravid.
That, indeed, is some radical way to run India’s World Cup campaign.
Thank you Kaps!
