The most amazing thing was they must have seen him bowling in the nets when he was called up and still played him to serve 115 kph pies.

forget the first over, guy was huffing and puffing between deliveries. Don't know what was the rationale of playing him.  That said I do love rp Singh as a cricket expert on shows.

i saw that match when RP Singh was suddenly called , RP looked like 8 KG fatter than what he normally was. He was always a 135K to 145K Bowler but during this stage of his carreer , he was a 115 to 128K Bowler. when he bowled anyone who has played cricket even at Club level could understand that He is massively short of Net Practice.

 

first it was a mistake to call him, 

Secondly if he was looking short of match Practice , give him to come in rhythm and then play him. He was played immediately and He was hit like anything.

 

Crazy decisions were taken by MSD too ..he had varun aroon in team but he was never played.

It happens as Gambhir said when you create monsters in dressing room. Dhoni won the world cup and he thought he could do anything and get away with it. They brought in Fletcher as a coach he couldn't care less. Next few years were some of the worst in Indian test history.

 

The Fletchoni era was very dark. Dhoni arrogant and not giving a toss about tests while Fletcher was picking up a last cheque before retirement.

 

0-8 whitewashes to Eng and Aus was the nadir. Shudder just thinking back to thst period.

Also, his luck ran out. He took some "inspired" decisions like giving the last over of the T20 WC to Jogi, etc which paid off handsomely. But at some point, things can go the other way as well.
