India to have two cricket teams: Pawar

The process of accountability has begun after the Indian Cricket Team's disappointing performance in world cup.

In an exclusive interview to NDTV BCCI chief Sharad Pawar said that there will now be two cricket teams for India - India Seniors and India Blue.

While the seniors will, as the name suggests, consist of the more experienced players, India blue will also get a chance at international games.

Pawar has also quashed rumours of an interim coach being named.

Earlier, there were reports that former India player Sandeep Patil was approached for the top job.

Pawar said the board has not yet decided to replace the captain or the coach. The decision will be taken only after the meeting in Mumbai, he said.

The board's working committee is scheduled to meet in Mumbai on April 6 and 7. All former Indian captains have been asked to attend the meet.

Well, this is an indirect way of following the Bangladeshi model of team building. I bet India Blue will consist of players like Bangladesh has, and ultimately, they'll use those players for their important matches. Oh well, finally Bangladesh had to show everyone that it really works :)
