This morning a news agency, the Press Trust of India, sent Cricinfo comments by Dravid about captaincy. I began rewriting it and had completed a considerable portion, where he said that captaincy would not hamper him, when I read the words, "I'm delighted to be capain for the Sri Lanka tri-series." This news was a month old.
In came a colleague with a tale to blow this one away. "This is nothing. UNI was worse. They released an obituary for R Venkatraman. He had to deny his death by appearing on television."
