Cricket... and more

When my friend and colleague, Anil Nair, accuses the Left of "subsidizing wounded self-esteem," he is referring to more than just Sourav Ganguly, the subject of his piece. He writes:
[S]een objectively, at the heart of Ganguly's sacking is the fraught question of managing the country's transition - as much in other walks of life as in sport - from a protected environment to one that is internationally competitive.
Indeed. And that's just why, whether or not it's right to drop the man, it's a matter in which politicians should certainly have no say.

By and by, cricket blogging has resumed at 23 Yards, as I'd mentioned before.
