Team India is a blot and a disgrace not only for all cricket lovers in India but for the hordes of companies that have their products endorsed by these packs of “flaky” outfit.
I see only one way to redress this appalling situation - and trust me, this would bear result faster than all of Chappell pep talks.
Here is the mantra. Have BCCI announce tomorrow that players' salaries and, more importantly, their product endorsement contracts would be amended to have the payments split into various instalments and that each instalment would be tied to the player's performance in the last five games immediately preceding the payment.
Take my word. This will work like a charm. Our players have got so comfortable to the celebrity lifestyle that there is no downside to non-performance.
