In a move which oozes confidence and sneers at short sighted doubters like this one here, Rahul Dravid has announced the 12 for the game starting tomorrow morning at Mirpur.
And no, there is no sign of any pressure of having missed chances or the risk of going home 0-0. What there is , is a belief in his men. For anyone who thought that panic would put process in perspective, this is a strong statement.
- VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh and VRV Singh don’t make the cut.
- Wasim Jaffer will still open.
- There will be 5 bowlers.
- One of Ishant Sharma, Romesh Powar or Rajesh Pawar – one assumes – will sit it out.
Basically, Dravid – Shastri and Co are saying that we came here believing that these were all the resources we needed to do the job. And to learn in the process. We still believe so.
If I was in a team, its what I’d like my leader to say.
Sun Tzu says ………..
If a General has confidence in his soldiers and his orders are obeyed, all will gain.
