You’re only as good as ….

Its really refreshing to see Saurav Ganguly amongst the runs and back in form. He has earned his place in the team by his recent performance. I am reminded of (jimmy) Mohinder Amarnath and also Jimmy (a real coincidence) Connors who staged some great comebacks in their sports careers. Welcome back Saurav!

But then why should some others continue to stay in the playing eleven just on the basis of a distant past or on account of their clout with the powers-that-be?

Given that there is so much money to be made (both on and off the field) in International cricket, each and every one needs to prove himself consistently or be out! A look at the Australian team over time clearly shows meritocracy at work.

There is and should be no holy cow!
