Indian cricket: Middle order (?) or its absence

After the humiliating defeat of Indian cricket team by at South Africans at Nagpur, I liked this one by Mickey Arthur; specifically, the following two points, which precisely capture my (and I believe most of us feel the same) thoughts.

but if the Indian middle order represents the next generation then the current number one ranked team have problems for the future.

and then

Harbhajan, who has in my opinion been below his best for several years now, must be questioning his future. His bowling lacked the zip and sting that was so characteristic in the early years of his career. He must be honest with himself and the management and selectors must be honest too. There is no place for sentiment in Test cricket — reputation and history should count for very little when selecting your best XI

Although, I don’t think Bhajji man is questioning his future place in Indian cricket team – who else do we have? Hopefully, he has targets to improve his own self!
