GOD SPEAK

GOD SPEAK

I wonder myself how it would be to listening to God’s voice? And then I get the answer this morning. It sound sweet, sweet as in when Sachin hits a cover boundary, a roar like an exquisite straight drive, sublime like an backward punch to extra cover, rhythmic like an exceptionally timed flick and dominating like an fiery pull over mid-wicket. AND GOD SPOKE TODAY! My friends tell me (they actually taunt) that comparing Sachin to God is little overboard,…

The curry and the kangaroo – Conclusion

The curry and the kangaroo – Conclusion

Wondering why there is no Part 6 and 7 as we have one more one dayer to go? The reason is simple, India have lost the mantle in Hyderabad, let alone the Guwahauti match. In any sport there are two ways to win, one by out-playing the opponent and the other being rewarded by a bad play from the opponent. For materialistic geeks and number buffs, this might sound crazy, leaving aside that they always draw the same conclusion in…

The curry and the kangaroo – Part 5

“Commit all the crimes you can, God is busy watching Sachin Tendulkar bat”. It is not unusual to see comments like that when a great man is at crease. Brilliant knocks from Watson, Marsh and White has seen Australia post a mammoth 350 on the board and chasing that score is a near impossible task. One man on the brink of making 17000 runs in his ODI career stood alone in what has world witnessed a spectacular display of sublime…

The curry and the kangaroo – Part 4

I guess I won’t be able to present a clear picture as I am unfortunate to have missed the proceedings having buried myself deep into work-meetings. However, based on the commentary and have watched India’s batting till Tendulkar was departed rather hastily, I would bet that Australia had bowled wonderfully and suffocated Indian batting line up. Some events are rather strange and hard to believe and they do work as domino affect. I guess Tendulkar’s dismissal is one such thing….

The curry and the kangaroo – Part 3

Predictions are always predictions and the good part is they are always backed up by a guarantee, the 50-50 rule. Seldom it happens that they come true and man thinks that he got it right. The beauty of Cricket is that it is a complete game, played by brain and body equally. Loosing the toss to Australia in a third trot was not easy for Dhoni and neither winning in succession. There is a good reason for the team rankings…

The curry and the kangaroo – Part 2

For a moment, I had a gentle smile on my face. This good friend of my mine often exchange heated debates over Cricket with me and he normally supports teams playing against India, be it Australia or Zimbabwe. He plays good level Cricket but his problem is in understanding the game. I admit that I get little emotional when someone downplays Sachin or India, but I must be honest, it is totally natural. For one, I am a ‘good’ supporter…

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

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…

The tale of two Gods

The tale of two Gods

Don’t expect anything close to mythology as my definition of God is a spirit who goes beyond divinity in what they do or perform. As biased as I can be, nothing shall redeem my love towards Federer and Sachin, the two Gods of two worlds. Unlike any other persons in their era, they have cast huge clouds on all the rest with their love towards their individual games and over-shadowed everyone else with their huge but naturally bread talent and…

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…
