    Although Dhoni has been made captain for the ODI side I don't think BCCI will go this route for the tests. Keeping in a test and then having some batting responsibility will put too much pressure on Dhoni.

    On top I think that Sachin has this internal desire to captain the team again one last time before he waves his career goodbye. And I have this gut feeling that was also the reason for Dravid resigning as captain as Sachin had made his desire clear to the BCCI.

    Conspiracy theory i know, but I don't see the board going back to Ganguly, nor to Dhoni, nor to an Anil Kumble or VVS Laxman. So Sachin it will be.

    Interesting point - the indian captaincy also gains prominence with the series against Pakistan coming up. Given that it will probably be the last test series for the India seniors in India the question becomes - will India go for Sachin as a captain in tests? If we wins, he gets a a storybook ending. If he doesnt it spoils his retirement plans etc

    Whats interesting is that Dhoni is winning the race in the poll. And also that Ganguly has a vote.

    Oh and yes, its a major series for the likes of Sachin, Dravid, Ganguly who would probably be playing for the last time against Pak, atleast on home soil. For Kumble as well.

    I suddenly feel that this series holds higher importance for India than it does for Pakistan. :-/

    Well, Sachin has declined. So I guess it will be Dhoni, who btw got 48% votes on our poll...I guess people want him too.
