What is the BCCI going to do?

By this time tomorrow, Greg Chappell would have handed over his report to BCCI and would have tabled all his thoughts on the current team and the reason for the World cup debacle. If the media is to be believed, this is what he would have written in his report-

  • Seniors in the team form a coterie (or “mafia” if you please). This coterie has a strong influence on the captain, Rahul Dravid
  • The seniors (Tendulkar, Ganguly, Sehwag, Kumble, Laxman, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh, Agarkar) do not let youngsters flourish
  • They lack commitment and generally do not do what they are instructed to do.
  • They put personal interest over teams interest.
  • The coterie persuaded Rahul Dravid to choose batting if India won the toss against Bangladesh (against the coach’s advice). This is just one of several instances where the coach’s advice was ignored.

Raj Singh Dungarpur has also said that the manager Sanjay Jagdale’s report will be completely unbiased and the board will give more importance to it.

I have three questions –

  • What is BCCI going to do with these reports?
  • If the reports say that the players have attitude problems, what are they going to do about it? (Drop, discipline, or do nothing)
  • Is BCCI going to make these reports public?

Guess we’ll find out soon.

  1. Ajit Wadekar has already come out against Greg Chappell. BCCI can discard all the comments of Greg Chappell and can continue “status quo”; and can appoint Ajit Wadekar / Ashok Mankad as the coach. Is that good for the future of Indian cricket ?

    I have decided not to spend any of my personal money on the current Indian cricket team. I bought World cup TV coverage for $200.

    Ajit Agarkar is a senior, huh ? I never understood why he was in the team for so many years.

  2. Agarkar has been playing international cricket for around 9 years now and has more ODIs under his belt than Sehwag and Yuvraj. That probably makes him a “senior”. What value he offers is a completely different question though :)?

    IMHO – Only Dravid, Ganguly, Laxman and Kumble can seriously lay claim to the “seniors” tag.

  3. Oh, and I missed out Tendulkar in that list
