SECOND OF THE SECOND OF THE SECOND………………..
It was astonishing to find that everyone connected with the Indian cricket team, right from the coach onwards and the media talking about the desire to be the second best team in the world, after the all-conquering Aussies. Now, India, Pakistan and England and not forgetting Mickey Arthur’s Proteas are supposedly in the race for the tag of ‘second best’. With India losing to Pakistan in the test series, and the defeat at Mumbai, they have slipped to being the second of the second of the second of…………. the second best.
It was quite ludicrous to read in the media, glowing tributes to the methods employed by Chappell and his team to make India the second best team. I am not sure whether Chappell ever said this. But if there is any truth, then it is time to do something that the English FA did to Sven Goran Erikson.
