The age of Kris

We might be in for a change in attitude towards transparency in selection matters. I am hoping, against all history and most logic.
If there is one thing that Kris is, it is that he is talkative. Straighttalking? I can't say. Probably more of someone who has little control over what he says, is what he is more likely to be.
The BCCI does not stand a chance with a gag order.
So either we have a very short Kris Srikkanth tenure or the BCCI comes to accept the fact that Kris will talk and write bullshit.

i can already see media licking its lips...

Very true. Somehow I think it might be the former, unless Cheeka falls for the lure of the bucks.

If the imbroglio over player payments preceding the Pakistan tour is any indication, Kris will do okay because he has his heart in the right place.

However, if he pushes for Aniruddh Srikkant over other worthy contenders, I will change my opinion just as quickly.

Cheers,

the player payment imbroglio in 1989 - sorry to not be specific.

John said...

Thanks Homer. I was too young to be aware of players, forget player payments.

Yes, SP, VM: either way, the ,edia will have a ball.

Cheeka has been an establishment man mostly...and the buzzy fuzziness about him is merely a vehicle to slip a point across the table.
