Dravid is not the only one being blamed for the recent slump, coach Chappell is being heavily criticised as well.
Holding Chappell responsible for the recent defeats, RPI MP Ramdas Athawale demanded the removal of the coach and
BCCI chief Sharad Pawar however supported the India coach, saying: "There is no question of sacking him. Till the contract is
there, there is no need to interfere in it.
"It is true that their [the team] performance was not up to the mark and there is tremendous scope to improve, but one should
not forget that it is the same team, the same captain and the same coach which had given extremely good results in Pakistan,
Sri Lanka and the West Indies," Pawar said.
Is there truly a slump? When Parliamentarians and the lay cricket fan talk in one voice of the golden age of Wright-Ganguly, are they on the mark?
We present a comparitive analysis of the two regimes -- tell us what you think.
