Indian Cricketers must be taught not to get runouts

India fuel strike

As seen in the fourth and fifth ODI between India and Australia played on second and fifth November respectively Indian batting and bowling doesn't look as threatening as the issue of them getting run outs. Although Indians too managed four Australian run outs in the fourth match, they ran themselves out in two occasions to run out of the match. Likewise in the today's match where Master-blaster and a Real Man of Honour:Sachin Tendulkar scored 175 runs himself which is exactly the half of the runs scored by the Australians, remaining Indians could not manage to overcome his personal score collectively. Here again two of them ran themselves out to stand themselves upon the loosing sides. I wonder do the Indian Captain and Couch discuss on these issues on how to teach players not to run themselves out.

Poor fellow Rabindra Jadeja really needs to be taken for some counselling classes because he seems to have faced this problem more than any of the Indian players. I think it is the high time people started teaching him to calm down his nerves in pressure situations and take his country through because millions of people watch patiently (some in excitements) to see their nation and their favourite team to register the victory. It is the responsibility of those eleven players to bring smiles on their millions of supporters because as it has been seen today even great man Sachin Tendulkar cannot make a team win if others dont put their head down to achieve the success. Winning a team game is a collective collective effort, it is not merely a "One Man Show"
