bad captaincy by tendulkar??

bad captaincy by tendulkar... 3rd test RSA vs India.

ok.. the 3 bowlers he tried were taking wickets.. had reduced the powerful
SA batting to 95 for 7.. but with them failing to break the partnership
.. klusener and cullinan taking the score all the way to 222!!!!... why
didnt tendulkar change the bowling... try different bowlers... Ganesh, for
eg. is our 4th strike bowler.. whoever he is.. i dont know how good and
all that.. but he is in the team as a bowler.. but Tendulkar
hardly even tried him!

strange to see Tendulkar, the so-deemed (and rightly so in many ways)
intelligent captain not try different sleeves up his trick when he
was short on time and was not able to get a wicket. there have been times
when gavaskar has been used or even kirmani to break a set partnership.
Not using a regular bowler seems a strange and stupid decision to me..

SA 2n innings bowling analysis..

Bowling                      O      M      R      W
Srinath                     24      6     89      2 (3nb)
Prasad                      15      1     59      2
Kumble                      23      7     40      3
Ganesh                       2      0      8      0
Tendulkar                    2      0     18      0
Ganguly                      2      2      0      0

Yikes!!!!!

Oh well... 2-1 would have sounded so much better.. especially with defeating
SA at home... Sorry Rahul Dravid and Ganguly... somehow your efforts all seem
to be in vain.

There seems to have been a 25 minute delay by organisers even after the
umpires called for the covers to be taken off. Before that, the delay was
mainly due to the poor facilities. The authorities did not have a supersopper
which is available at Madras and Bombay. This being the case, SRT had to
desist using bowlers who took time to bowl. That is the reason that even
Srinath was pulled out. His long run up would have used up precious time.

sorry, you are wrong. Withtout their effort it would have been 3-0. a 2-0 is
definitely better than 3-0 (wash/sweep etc).

don't you think!!!!!!!

I am sure you meant "different tricks up his sleeve"!

I believe that the light was pretty bad when RSA batted
second on the last day. If Tendulkar had used his pacers
the umpires would have called off the match due to bad
light. Cullinan & Klusner did bat well. Klusner seems
to have been the find of this back-to-back series and
should be a thorn in many a opposition sides in the
future.
