Dhoni- Dhoni: The monk who does not have to sell his Ferrari

 I thought of several titles to describe Mahendra Singh Dhoni: Zen master, Fire fighter, Tight rope walker, Deadly Finisher, Captain Cool. But I realized the most defining quality of Dhoni is his ability to be still and calm in the midst of chaos and imminent risk and high-pressure situations. It is far easier to remain at peace in a forest meditating alone, than to drive a Ferrari in full speed with a knife waiting to behead you everytime you fail the expectations of a billions cricket loving souls. Yet that is Dhoni’s unenviable job everyday.   For a 90s kid

Is it a Bird? Is it a plane? No, Its Jonty.

Jonathan Neil “Jonty” Rhodes (born 27 July 1969) is possibly the best fielder in the history of cricket. He as we all know played for the South African cricket team between 1992 and 2003. In cricket good, rather brilliant fielding is synonymous with Jonty. He is probably the only cricketer who is not remembered for his batting or bowling but for his fielding which is still possibly considered a secondary skill as compared to the other two.

The Battle Royale: Where the heart and mind went with different Teams

Long after the last spectator at the Garden of Eden has left for their quaint little homes. Long after the din of furious key strokes pounding at the keyboards has fallen silent and match reports are submitted. Long after the night sky had cleared enough of the electric fireworks. The pitch at the Garden of Eden will stare into the open sky, her companion when the game ceases to exist and open her heart out about what transpired earlier in the day. A vanquished Dale Steyn had come down to rest his breaking body and broken heart to rest, his
