The perceptions change fairly quickly. I heard a lot of people praising Sahara for picking up the best palyers paying huge sums. Coach Geoff Marsh was loaded as well. Pune was described as the most balanced side after the auction was concluded. At the same time there was wrath all around for Kochi. People said the management was all at see and they did not know what to do. Geoff Lawson was ridiculed by many as a man without proper cricketing vision. Now see what happened? Things change fairly quickly. Kochi is now a formidable unit while pune is nosediving to greater depths.
