India v. West Indies: Heads I Win, Tails You Lose

by Devanshu Mehta

I know I’ve been harping on this all day, but I have one more thing to add. First, from Cricinfo:

In all, India are without Tendulkar, Dhoni, Sehwag, Yuvraj, Zaheer, Gambhir and Ashish Nehra for the ODIs. They will also have to do without Tendulkar, Sehwag, Gambhir and Pujara for the Tests.

Here’s what I have to say: if India lose to the West Indies, perhaps someone of some importance will start taking this issue seriously.

If India wins against the West Indies, god help us. If India wins, it means two things:

  1. An Indian B-team is good enough to beat the current top West Indies team at home.
  2. No one will take seriously the schedule and conflict of interest issues highlighted by the the top-half of the team sitting this one out.
