Anil Kumble to captain India in Tests


As I had indicated in my post yesterday, without any sensible way of extricating themselves from the crazy corner that they had pasted — no plastered — themselves into, the selectors had no choice but to offer the Team India Test captaincy to Anil Kumble.

The appointment, in true BCCI fashion, was only for the series against Pakistan.

Myopia? Naaah! “We are like this only” [shake-head-right, shake-head-left]

A post-appointment interview with Anil Kumble is available here.

  1. I can not think of any other rationale for this policy other than this myopic – short term – policy which makes the selection committee more powerful.
