Arjuna (despite his current erratic politics) was an exemplary leader who subdued some pretty big egos and built a winning team. He was the man that Kipling and other colonial poets wrote about - never once thinking it might be a native son of the conquered soil. He taught "the man" a lesson and Mathews may (insh'Allah) follow in his footsteps. Angelo is still young and we could forgive him an abysmal failure this WC until 2018/9 when he will be in his early thirties and at the top of his game as a leader. That said, as a fan, I hope he, and SL, go well in 2015 and beyond. We do not expect small miracles or wonders as yet, but just 11 blokes playing their hearts out for their country and country-folk. "That'll do" as the farmer said in 'Babe'.
