Ajit Agarkar For Captain

I think the press and the BCCI are insulting India's greatest ever cricketer by not even considering his name. He is the best choice for the following reasons
1. Match Winner
2. Guaranteed Place in Test, ODI, Twenty20 teams for next 10 years
3. Guaranteed to play in 2011 and 2015 world cups
4. His performance cannot drop below his current levels because of captaincy pressures
5. The only cricket player to have delivered consistent performance all through his career.
6. Can be relied upon to deliver during crunch situations.
7. Tries his level best to ensure victory even if situation is dire.
8. Will never fail to deliver on people's expectations.
What more does anybody want? Can anybody contest/dispute even one of the above-mentioned 8 points? Just try, I say.

I would like to add a couple of important qualities of Agarkar that makes him an even stronger candidate.
- Helps in marketing cricket like nobody has ever done b4. The audience were introduced to a bowl-out for the first time in International cricket that won lot of media attention
- Brings the best out of rest of the bowlers in the team. Sreesanth's last over was an inspired performance after Agarkar's penultimate.

Agree to all of them....just some caveats...

1. Match Winner - For the opposite team
2. Guaranteed Place in Test, ODI, Twenty20 teams for next 10 years - Depends on Mr Vengsarkar (or) Sharad Pawar's presence in BCCI
3. Guaranteed to play in 2011 and 2015 world cups - Depends on Mr Vengsarkar (or) Sharad Pawar's presence in BCCI
4. His performance cannot drop below his current levels because of captaincy pressures - No question
5. The only cricket player to have delivered consistent performance all through his career - Very good observation
6. Can be relied upon to deliver during crunch situations - :-)
7. Tries his level best to ensure victory even if situation is dire - again this applies to the opposing team
8. Will never fail to deliver on people's expectations - Yes, absolutely amazing...

No doubt, Ajit Agarkar is the most permanent member of the team. He consistenly delivers 14/15 match for the opposite team and 1/15 for the Indian team. No player has been as consistent like this as Ajit. I think its the time for Sharad pawar (who himself is not able to efficiently handle the agriculture ministry) & Co. to consider or at least groom him as the future captain to take the Indian Sports to the next level.

We cricket playing nations (except Indians) love you Ajit!

agarkar is like the YGM of cricket.

I love Agarkar for the same reason I love Gasquet. I think he is a good bowler who lost his way in international cricket.

Hawkeye said...

bharath,

he tried his level best. that it led to bowl-out shouldnt be his fault

anon1, anon2

:-)

I,

yes! finally YGM found a soul mate

juvvi,

he has walked in 8 out of 9 test playing teams , what do you mean ?

Juvvi said...

He was a good bowler to begin with. I haven't seen cricket for a long time now so I can't say. He is still the best outfielder had from what I know.

Why do you think he is in the team? No, I don't think its because of a lobby or something. Its because they don't have a replacement. Indian bowling sucks and Agarkar is a part of it. Why single him out? Dravid backs Agarkar, right? Are you accusing Dravid, the model of sincerity, of favouritism? He simply has something that we don't know. May be some untapped genius that's waiting to burst out or something. Indian cricket has always relied on such nonsense things to win games. Why O Why Agarkar is the scapegoat now?

I said...

Juuvi, there are/were equally bad cricketers who can maintain the same low standards and did not deserve any less than agarkar. But agarkar has been like markandeyan, just refusing to die or go away. Other mediocre people were not given half as many chances as him.

Agree with you 100%. We should also make him the Congress I president while we are at it.

Kiran said...

Don't you dare accuse Agarkar - He has snatched defeat from the jaws of victory ohh-so-many-times for India. A special tribute for him on India winning the T20 world cup in my latest blog...chk it out!

Hawkeye said...

GB,

I suggested PM in one of my earlier blogs, but I agree cong I president is a more powerful position for this high achiever.
