: : >This is the sum total of the performance of the "Fantastic" Gavaskar of the
: : >80s who was "NOT a Spent Force" like "Kapil after 84".
: : in 1984 was 25 years old. SMG till his last innings ( that 96 againt Pak)
: : was never a liability. The same can't be said about Kapil. In fact he was
: : responsible for Srinath's keeping out of test cricket from 1992 to 1994.
How can u say that??Srinath's performance in his debut series in Australia
was nothing exceptional.Agreed he came in as a 1 down speeddster but u can't help
it, thats the way all the medium pacers of India are introduced, even Prabhakar.
Moreover, Kapil did very well after a long time in that Aus series of '91-92;
even in India against England, he and Prabhakar were chipping in with the usual
wickets here and there(of course the spinneres were doing all the damage), so there
was no need to play Srinath.But he sure was taken in for the ODIs where he did
nothing exceptional.So, there has been no injustice against Srinath at all.
And Kapil was not a liability at all.
: : is twice his good days. SMG was great for his first 9 years , good for next
Why can't u apply the same logic to Kapil???Also, a batsman can do well upto
whatever age he wants.gavaskar could have easily continued if he wanted to.
Geoff Boycott played till he was 43.
: : 7 years. G R Vishwanath was good till 1979. In his last 3 years he was so bad
: : that he actually became a liability and was hence kicked out.
No comments. :-)[Irrelavant stats]
: : Looks like my attack on Kapil is irritating you and hence the retaliation.
Of course, this is a counter arguement, nothing more than that.
Besides, u yourself got irritated when somebody omitted gavaskar
unintentionally and that was his personal choice of players that he liked.
So, i decided to play the same game on you by trying to find weak spots
of Gavaskar, who incidentally was also my favourite player.Besides u unnecessarily
abuse Kapil just because he had a personality clash against your favourite,SMG.
