The Indian cricketing season.

Duncan Fletcher has hid himself under a blanket. Sachin Tendulkar has undertaken hibernation. The captain cool has caught cold. The celsius has indeed taken a toll on team India.
Death bowling is dead. Batting line up is a revised format of skittles. Fielding is a free sample of stock market – sometimes the best, other times the worst. Allow me to exaggerate, but the team is like the constitution. It needs amendments.
Dismay for previous losses. Anger for the loss to England. Rage for this loss to Pakistan.
No longer do we bleed blue, but just bleeding  over the losses that have accrued over the past few months. The balance between players getting enumerous chances and the players striving for a chance needs to be verified. We have been pushed back, and have been reduced to a defensive outlook and a crude approach.
At this circumstance, the Indian team is left with only two options; either to dare or to face the bitter truth. Somewhere I feel, captaincy may just be slipping out of Dhoni’s hands. A nightmare for Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja.

It is too early to call spring up but the team does need that replenished energy and new spirit. If cold decisions are the need, then be it. It’s time we show them how hot we are. Waiting for a thunderous performance.
