Why Sourav must go

I am with Chappel on this. First of all, the captain chose to disclose the information (that he was asked to step down as captain) AFTER he made his 100, not when he was asked. And it was right in the middle of a test! How unprofessional. We are talking about a captain who promoted himself to #3 in batting because “he was too tired of waiting to bat in the middle order”

And Ganguly says that all that matters is that he won the tests 2-0 and got our first overseas win in 20 years. He won? He scored a hundred? Come on, even Karthik would have led India to a victory in Zimbabwe. His disclosure to the media itself made him unfit for the job, not counting the other reasons Chappel mentioned in his email to the board.
