Indian Cricket: Dhoni Is King And The Pitch Puzzle!

The humiliation at the turning pitch of Mumbai at the hands of England was not enough enough to make the Indian cricket Board (BCCI) wonder ponder and take action. India captain MS Dhoni is still the unquestioned King. He is having his way right royally.

Nothing has happened to any of the non-performers. Team India remained unchanged except for reserve pacer Ashok Dinda coming in place of injured Umesh Yadav. Chief selector of BCCI, Sandip Patil, had just one say--team selected only for the third Test in Kolkata and not for the rest of the India-England Series as expected.

Interestingly and most significantly Dhoni is still King for his 'pitch' demands too. The aborted and most slammed experiment in Mumbai Test was not enough enough either. The veteran curator at Eden Gardens pitch of Kolkata has been sidelined and BCCI has reportedly asked its East Zone curator to take charge urgently.

What the King is up to this time in Kolkata? Well, his larger subjects have a democratic right to know! Democracy is reeling already under pressure all around all round! Herr King...please!

Just an afterthought! Considering the walloping transparency of the overwhelming business done would it not be advisable for Team India to play only IPL or all T20 only?
