Fab Four find no place in the ICC's World Test Team.

The unimaginable has happened.

 

For the first time none of the fab four have found a place in the ICC's World Test Team. Until now, one or the other has always been Indian cricket's representative in the World Test XI.

 

The exclusion of the fab four by a selection panel comprising of Clive Lloyd (Chairman), Greg Chappell, Shaun Pollock, Sidhath Wettimuny and former Bangladesh batsman Athar Ali Khan and the inclusion of Virendar Sehwag as the lone Indian cricketer indicates that the others in the cricketing world have started looking beyond them.

 

It is also a clear signal to the Indian selectors that it is time Indian cricket looked beyond the fab four.

 

The question is do they have the guts to do it.

Im back Ottayan and I see that you are still talking about sacking your big 4.

Who are the replacements?

I think it will serve Indin cricket better to ease out the seniors 1 by 1 rather than all at once.

Q,

Glad to have you back.

If you notice I am still talking about the ugly Aussie's too.:)

I am also for easing the seniors out in a phased manner. The problem lies there.
