Post Views: 0   Captain RED: I call Gambhir captain RED because he has been a personification of anger all through the season, yelling and screaming at the bowlers and fielders.

Post Views: 15  By Atul Singh  जलता ज़ीवन जलते तुम हम, ख़त्म हो गई राहें सब ।  आगे है घनघोर अँधेरा दुःख की बदली छाई है । साथ मिलाकर छोड़ गए सब, क्यूँ तू संग मेरे आई है ॥ क्यूँ करू तुझसे प्रणय निवेदन, क्या तू जीवन सार मिला । किया तिरस्कार तूने है अब तक, क्यूँ अब तेरा प्यार जगा ॥ तू ठहरी अलका का वैभव, पर अवनी का मैं भी पुजारी हूँ । प्रेम
