Gulu Ezekiel's Blog: Challenger Trophy
by
Sep 27, 2006
The timing of the Challenger Trophy, to be staged at Chennai from Oct. 1-4 is somewhat odd in that the team for next month's Champions Trophy has already been picked.

The tournament is an unusual mix of young and old and pits three teams against each other in an event in which individual performances has always carried more weight than the team's show.

Last year's event at Mohali brought a number of young talents into the national spotlight. S. Sreesanth, Piyush Chawla and Robin Uthappa all made their mark and entered the international fray as a result The selectors have this time too decided to test out a bunch on newcomers.

Rahul Dravid is captain of the India Blue side while Venugopal Rao and Mohammad Kaif will lead the India Red and Green respectively. Under-19 stars like Tanmay Srivastava and Rohit Sharma will get a chance to compete against the cream of India's cricketing talent. And as always, the comeback chances of Saurav Ganguly 'playing under the leadership of Mohammed Kaif' will be the topic of much debate.

Sachin Tendulkar is part of the Blue team but will miss the opening match as he has asked for a bit of rest.
