India won the world cup in 1983, under the captainship of great all
rounder Kapil Dev. But just after the world cup victory, the Indiancricket team faced 3-0 in Tests and 5-0 defeats in ODI by West India. After this defeat , several players like Mohinder Amarnath, Roger Binny, Madan Lal, Yashpal Sharma, Balvinder Singh Sandhu were taken out although they were the Heros of Indian Victory in World cup,1983.
Now, the history is repeated, on 2nd April,2011 India won the World Cricket Cup again. Recently, India tasted the shameful defeat of 4-0 by England team. It’s a right time to drag out players like VVS Laxman, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Zahir Khan from Indian squad. Moreover, they all are not fully physically fit and not giving 100 per cent performance in the crucial matches. So why we are giving more chances to them.
Now, we should give the opportunity to upcoming talent like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Pragyan Ojha who may prove their worth and become more useful players for the future then the latter ones. The media and cricket pandit raised their figures about Sachin’s retirement, we should accept that He is an exceptional cricketer and really God of Cricket. It is he who will decide his retirement. Let him enjoy the game. The Indian selectors should come forward and select the young and talented players.
Only then Indian Cricket Team can gain No.1 slot again.
