One small step for Yuvraj, but a huge step backward in time for India. At least it seems so. The guy Yuvraj replaces, loses his place for doing nothing wrong. Let me quote a oft repeated cliche here. They always say that a hundred criminals can go scot free, but not a single innocent should be punished. Isn't this guy, who has received his share of the accolades everywhere from the Gangtok Times (Google cache) to The Hindu, not to mention Cricketnext and Cricinfo, innocent of any wrongdoing? Or is doing what is asked of him, crime enough to warrant such a punishment?
One just hopes India wins this Test and also that this experiment succeed just this once. And one also hopes, in the six months between this last Test at Pindi and the next one, the first test of the home series against Australia, Ganguly or whoever makes the final decision then, see the sense in getting back Chopra to the top of this order.
