Indian ferocious opener, Virender Sehwag, has been dropped from Team India for the next two test matches against Australia because of his continued crippled performance !
Although, confident Sehwag says he will be back in the team soon, it reminds me of his issues with Captain M.S.Dhoni! Will he get a chance again till Dhoni remains the captain ? 🙂
The rift between Dhoni and Sehwag has made it to the news many a times in the recent past.
Virender Sehwag dropped from remaining two test matches against Australia
England broke 28 year old record of beating India in Test Series on Indian grounds and has also served critics of Dhoni’s captaincy to raise their voice, at least, against his Test Captaincy. Sunil Gavaskar,the veteran Indian cricketer, is of the view that its time Virat Kohli replace M.S.Dhoni .

Ricky Ponting retires
Australian Cricketer,Ricky Ponting,the only batsman who could compete with Sachin Tendulkar,in terms of records,has declared his retirement from International Cricket,leaving behind a debate if its high time even Sachin should retire due to his age and continued failure to deliver !
The former national level athlete(middle distance runner) who brought glory to the nation by winning gold medals at various international competitions has been declared a male, after tests conducted by doctors at SSKM Hospital,Kolkata.The athlete has been denying rape and cheating charges slapped by athlete’s live-in partner.The police has filed rape case on Pinki after the gender-determination test has revealed Pinki is a male.
Now,even if she may not be found guilty of rape( in case),she may still have a chance of being stripped off her medals which she won in women’s catagory. Hopefully,now Pinki would know the difference between a male and a female !
Pinki Pramanik a male-medical reports
Briton Ed Hawkins,a sports journalist who has spent several years investigating corruption in cricket,in his yet to be released book-‘Bookie,Gambler,Fixer,Spy’ , has questioned the authenticity of India Vs Pakistan World Cup 2011 Match which India won and eventually the World Cup!
With few Pakistani players, previously, found guilty of being involved in spot-fixing,the claims made in the book cannot be rubbished completely.This may also put Indian Cricket Team’s reputation and achievements to question,as well.
