Game On…

Game On…

I wonder myself that what it takes me to write so much about Cricket, passion or obsession, interest or madness, love or fan-ship and finally had to settle down on everything. I woke up to my fate at 4:40 am this morning to catch the action on my computer and was disappointed that India lost the a crucial toss. Being a Day-Nighter the due factor in that part of the country and specially that ground (with new turf) will be…

The curry and the kangaroo – Part 1

The curry and the kangaroo – Part 1

And the series has started yet again, with a flamboyant style with almost a perfect end. India and Australia yet again face each other in this 7 ODI series true to their existing ICC ranking regards. The world’s No.1 team competing with No.2 team on turfs that are always witnessed in thousands and million across the tubes is nothing less than spectacular. The 1st ODI had all the ingredients of a brilliant drama with an exquisite screenplay. Both teams tried…

Arrogance Paid

Arrogance Paid

If there is one Cricket team that can only be more arrogant than itself, pat comes the answer as ‘Australia’ from any one. The team boasts itself of using ‘sledging’ as one of their main tactics and were always one step ahead of their opponents. This time around, the arrogance has been paid its due. Ashes defeat is not  just a display of two teams competing each other on Test Cricket and take the rubber away. England had proved what…

The TEAM that is!

The TEAM that is!

I could have not imagined that I would pen down appreciation for Pakistan in my dreams, but exceptions are not finite and I could not wait to scribble this down. More than any team in this edition of T20 World Cup, Pakistan has shown everyone what a TEAM means. When you have harmony equally mixed with happiness, the result is always success and Pakistan had more than demonstrated that on the field yesterday to run down South Africa and reach…

The four fingers

The four fingers

There is a saying in our tradition, if you point one finger there are 4 left, pointing oneself. I felt sad at people pointing fingers at the Indian team failing to go to Semi-Finals. The so called supporters suddenly withdrew the support and started raising their voices and filled up the blogs with their analysis. Dhoni admits mistake, write most of the columnists and people started finding mistakes in the strategy. Unfortunately you would only find those flaws when you…

Idle Premier League

Idle Premier League

Sitting on the sidelines of job lookout is no fun, having thrown everything that I can at the non-opportunist market, things are not going too well at this time. As with any other momentary ‘looser’, I was on roll to find my peace and what else than Cricket would be up for grabs. IPL came to my rescue to control my aggression and perform the consolation choir and the good news is I may get to see all the matches….

of game, god and goodbye

of game, god and goodbye

Everyone hoped that India should have won the Wellington Test. They have indeed, until the God decided otherwise. Technically they have won the game and more than anything in Dhoni’s words they’ve “set the standard”. Cricket fans had great time with the game and so does New Zealand’s small little economy. Cricket provides people with great relief as it just not a game that they come to witness, but all those legends who have graced it. Winners and losers are part…

The train and the coins

The train and the coins

The train is approaching and the good old copper coin is on the tracks. The coin has two fates. Get crushed under those hot iron wheels or simply fall off to a side. In my view the first option is better. The coin becomes flat, bigger and the shine of copper comes out, crystal clear. The coin is new having learnt a lesson to survive and come out bright. Teams playing with India had similar fates recently. And, New Zealand…

Leg Before Wicket (Keeper)

Leg Before Wicket (Keeper)

Let me first congratulate the Indian team to have won the series, although it was obvious! Sehwag and Yuvraj were ruthless and Sri Lanka truly deserves this punishment, having playing with 12 players, of course including the umpire. Coming back to the title of the story, Sri Lankan umpires has re-defined LBW by just adding ‘Keeper’ to the wicket. Sachin was given out LBW 3 times in as many matches and none of them were right, of course in the…

Thank You Sachin

Thank You Sachin

For the first time in life, I have not followed Cricket. Mumbai scars will never ever fade away. After talking to my friend over the phone last night, I was then aware of what was going on as he mentioned Sehwag’s outrage. Today morning, after a long break from Cricket, I opened up the browser to see that Sachin’s century has won a game for India. Nothing, nothing in this world would have made me feel consoled, be it my…
