Last thoughts on Gangs

No matter what happens, and what form the end of his career takes, I'd like to acknowledge an Indian cricketer with qualities I've often wished other Indian cricketers possessed: personality and guts. The first man to say something to a television or print journalist that went beyond the trivial inanities that Indian cricketers subject us to (Tendulkar included). And the first to stand up and talk back to a whole host of folks, notably the BCCI and opposing teams!. Maybe he has talked back once too often and his lack of cricket form has caught up with him. But hes done a great deal to put some resolve into this crew. There is a huge rush to show Ganguly the door. Fair enough. Lets go with the best team but lets not forget what this man has done for Indian cricket.
