The Karthik conundrum
Watching Karthik sitting on the sidelines is a sad reminder that this lad can't seem to arrest his downward slide. How the mighty have fallen. I've always considered him a better bat than Dhoni, thought he would get his wicketkeeping to a point where he'd excel MSD, and even reckoned he was captaincy material. But he's played himself out of the test side (various factors have contributed to this state of affairs, of course), and when given chances in ODI games, hasn't quite seized them. It's a long way from the glory days of 2007.
