Dravid and friends: Don't cross the border if you lose...Plunge into Padma..

By John Cheeran
Many events have happened in Indian cricket since the World Cup fiasco. More rest for Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, and then the BCCI President Sharad Pawar’s statement that sponsors are influencing the process of selecting the national team.
I’m interested in Pawar’s statement where he pointed put that some of the seniors are unhappy with the presence of newcomers in Indian cricket.
Ah, and immediately after Pawar’s pronouncement fast bowlers S Sreesanth and RP Singh have given seniors the jolt. Sreesanth gave a scare to batting icon Sachin Tendulkar and two days later R.P. Singh bloodied the nose of Indian skipper Rahul Dravid.
Quite an auspicious beginning to India’s Bangladesh tour!
Team manager Ravi Shastri has urged the fans to give seniors more time to deliver the goods. Yes, you need time to rebuild your tattered billboards. The quicker the seniors do it, better for themselves.
One thing is certain than ever. Rahul Dravid and his pack of oldies and rookies will be playing for themselves. And it would be preposterous to entrust these bunch of jokers India’s tri-colour.
Go guys, play for yourselves.
If you lose in Dhaka and Chittagong, do not bother to cross the border.
River Padma will be an apt place for Resting in Peace..
