    India must also be concerned by the inconsistency of the younger players. Across professions, consistency is a direct product of work ethic. The greats were defined by their consistency because they were wedded to work ethic. No oddball gambler ever achieved greatness - Harsha Bhogle

    The just concluded tri-series in Sri Lanka seriously exposed our so-called 'Youngistan's' arrogance. Apart from Virender Sehwag, no one even bothered/was able to join the fight, forget the party.
