India's Cricket Tour Australia 2011-12

It is a shame to see the overpaid cricketers concentrating on shopping and go-karting rather than on playing well in the test matches. One thing is clear, pay money I play well. For the BCCI sponsored representation of India, where the money is lower, we concentrate on holidaying!

It quite apparent from the IPL4 crowd response. For sure it is dwindling. Recent one-dayers with West Indies was an eye opener with 15,000 in Kolkatta stadium which can accommodate nearly 70,000..

In my view, the current generation is an intelligent lot. They seem to be moving towards other games, especially Soccer!

With the IPL style football leagues on the anvil, popularity of soccer should zoom in the coming 2to 3 years.

In the meanwhile, Shewag, Laxman, Dravid should retire and Gautam, Dhoni should be dropped from the test squad.

Either Suresh Raina or Virat Kohli should be groomed for captaincy with talents like Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu should be given more chances.
