The man who took out his cricket shirt on the world famous cricket ground, the lords after winning the series against England, has got a breather from the BCCI selectors.
Dada , who is undisputedly regarded as one of the best one day batsman by several cricket magazine is now facing problem to make into the team. But today it was a great relief for one of the legend in India cricket.
I personally consider him the father of aggressive cricket in India, he pioneered how to play aggressive cricket he has given so much to Indian cricket. And when there is time to repay him we are betraying him.
I think he is victim of strong politics in BCCI and his proximity to former BCCI chief Jagmohan dalmiya other wise no one can question his ability as a player for both one day international and test cricket.
Saurav inclusion in the team was in danger right from the last test cricket series against Sri Lanka and it was confirmed by not giving him place in Irani Trophy. But our dada has never say die attitude which brings him back to the team despite of much effort by the selectors of BCCI to keep away from team.
Keep rocking dada. Not only Bengal but entire India is with you!
