Having virtually failed to take off in the recently concluded Sri Lanka test series, Saurav Chandi Ganguly, may find it a bit difficult to 'hang on' to his position in the test side.

He has already been ousted from the ODI team, courtsey Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

It would be really unfair to squarely put the blame entirely and only on Ganguly for the Lankan debacle since all the members of the Fab (Glam) Four club failed to click.

Vengy and Co, meeting on Monday (08 Sept 08), would find the going tough since they have a dictum from BCCI to pick virtually a test xi sans the Delhi players for the Irani Trophy ROI team.

Keeping the on-going 'looking into the future' policy of BCCI, the selection committee may choose to fiddle around with atleast a couple of the Fab Four.

Laxman, Very Very Special, has been quite effective against Aussies and is a cause of worry for the Kangaroos. So he may escape the wrath of the selectors.

Sachin considered to be demi-god, might also make his way into the dressing room. This is also keeping in mind the fact that he is just 70-odd runs away from creating history.

It then boils down to the duo of Dravid and Ganguly. Selectors may also think of retaining the 'Wall' and the hence the axe, if it is to be used, would fall on Saurav Ganguly.

Assuming Ganguly is shown the door, the ideal replacement for him should be in the form of either Suresh Raina (who has perfomed well in Lankan ODIs) or Rohit Sharma (who is expected to do well). Maybe Subramaniam Badrinath's wait would be extended.

I think its better Ganguly should be played in One day rather then Test Matches like S.Jaisurya of Sri Lanka because h ecan contribute with his balling as well.But he has to take care of his fielding.

Why Suresh Raina and Badrinath were not given a chance? It is good to give chance to new comers rathar than to someone like Kaif who had been already given several chances. Equal opportunity should be given to all players. I do not know why some players are given extended chances and others are not. It will be better if uniform selection policy is adopted and followed. I agree with the dropping of Ganguly. One by one all senior should go if they do not perform.

newbegin - Badri and Raina are going to play in the triangular tournament between India 'A', Australia 'A' and New Zealand 'A' and hence miss out of the Irani Trophy game.

Ok lets ask us this question..

Will Ganguly play the Test series against Australia? I doubt it at this stage.. I get a strong feeling that either Badri or Rohit will get a chance in the Test team..

I think it is end of the road of Ganguly. As far as Badri and Rohit are concerned, they may get a call during the course of the series, if one or more seniors fail repeatedly. Badri should be given priority over Rohit as Rohit has not been among the runs recently and is very inconsistent. The big players does not take too long to express themselves in the scence.

Ya but what about Kaif getting picked? If Kaif scores well in the Iran Trophy tie, he may get a look in against Australia...
