Priorities, Guru Gary, and Sehwag's pick for Australia
Here is to Guru Gary - Gary Kirsten is making all the correct noises after being (contract not yet signed as of the time of writing the article) appointed the coach of the Indian cricket team. He talks about the respect for the Big 3, the honor of coaching India and how he wants to blend in with the thoughts of the team, rather than dictate things as his predecessor famously failed to do.
Sehwag's pick a good choice - When I initially heard the BCCI's squad of probables for the Australian tour, I could spot two gaping big holes in it, one which probably could not be helped and the second which I put down to dumb-headedness of the selection committee. Later, when the final squad was picked, out of the blue came in one of my picks, who wasn't even in the list of probables, and I couldn't help but applaud the selectors for once. Picking someone who wasn't in the probables sounds dumb but doing the right thing even at the risk of looking dumb is praiseworthy.
