A new coach for the men in blue!

Another coach for the men in blue would soon take over from John Wright. I for one believe that Wright did a few things right and a few things wrong. He indeed brought in a flavour of team spirit amongst the individual members. The team also began looking beyond the genius of one man trying to take the burden of a billion people - Sachin Tendulkar.

The things that Wright could not make a difference on were the team’s ability to loose a contest from a winning position - Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. This has been the bane of the team and there are n number of instances where the team has given up advantageous positions only to be defeated and humiliated later - Case in point the test series against the Pakistanis.

The new coach will have to make changes to the attitude of the players, make them stronger - physically, mentally both and ensure the shrug off the label of chokers.

So be it Dino the professor or Tom Moody or Greg Chappell or Dave Whatmore, it’s a tough job and hopefully we will see a successful tenure for the coach and the captain.
