  2. I think the BCCI and the controversy between Sehwag and Dhoni which is the cause behind Indian Cricket team loss in Test Series against Australia, and media has unnecessarily create hype for the senior players to go. Actually Dhoni should quit from Test Cricket who show his willingness to quit Test Cricket. This is not only the Drawid who had bad Test Series but also the other senior players and the junior players. Why BCCI and media forced Dravid to quit test cricket.

    According to me players like Sachin and Drawid are treasure of Indian Cricket and they should not be forced to quit like this. This is very bad that such a nice player of Indian Cricket has to quit like this. We will see how junior players or Dhoni or Sehwag will play like Drawad.

    It is very bad that Drawid has to go like this.

    1. You are right test cricket goes woe for INDIA as there was surely rift between Sehwag and Dhoni. Also the statement made by Gambhir about the finishing the match and reply of Dhoni to it was an evidence to it. Also hipe of Shewag captaincy after Dhoni get banned for one match. Dhoni has already say that he will quit test and that is what he will.

      I don't think that the tension among the team mate lead Dravid to quit nor the performace, he already mentioned in his retirement speech he want to open gate for Youngster. Well you can see the video in the post.
