Rahul Dravid Steps Down
Talk about a bolt from the blue!
Just when he was beginning to do well, just when Team India was beginning to look consistent and seemed to have recovered from the shocker of a performance at the World Cup, Rahul Dravid has dropped the bomb.
I am very surprised at this decision because this comes just after he lead his team successfully in the England tour. There were no possible indications of something like this in the offing, perhaps a tribute to his mental toughness or perhaps something else…he is not as simple person as he looks! I honestly fel that he was doing well-enough to retire as a captain.
I am also concerned about his replacement. What choices does the board have? The names that pop-up are: Dhoni, Yuvraj and well, that’s it! And what about the tests?
So much for now…I’ll try to write a bit more later. Let the shock sink in.
