Dravid run out again


The 1st ODI against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi is going on right now. And Dravid’s run himself out again in yet another woeful way. At this rate, it won’t be too long before he surpasses Haq as the player that’s been run out the most often. On a slow pitch as this one, he’s our most important player. After a close call the previous ball, now Pathan’s run himself out too. These guys need to work on their running between the wickets. And diving too. I’ve now seen quite a few times that when batsmen are diving to make their ground, they hold their bat sideways, which means it bounces off the floor. Surely, somebody in the dressing room must be noticing this on tv.

On a side note, I am disappointed to see both Sehwag and Kaif “rested.” This most likely means they will both play in the next game. Since they’re out of form, India needs to make sure that we don’t play them together. But the management doesn’t seem to mind that.

    Yeah, it is becoming a very serious issue with Dravid and his run-outs (if it hasn’t already become so).
    About the “rest”, well, it’s just a cope-out. I agree with Gavaskar’s comment that players are making too much out of the “tough schedule”.
    How come not a soul complained about the overcrowded schedule when players were paid match-to-match rather than yearly contracts? Tough it out, fellows. You wanted standard contracts and you got it. ICC and the individual boards are well within their rights to ride your asses in exchange for the hefty paychecks you get. So, quit your whining and bitching and just play the damn game. If not, just stay home.

    I don’t agree with Gavaskar. Will post more about that soon.
