Why Indian Team Was Supposed To Lose and How Can They hit Back: Analysis

That moment when Ishant Sharma tamely chipped the delivery in the air for Moeen Ali to complete the catch, the humiliation was well & truly complete. What started as a tour where India started to look as favourites after the Lords win to outsmart England given their vulnerability as a test team after their recent losses against Sri Lanka & Australia in the Ashes, ended without a whimper. Indian fans found themselves on familiar territory when it came to expectations of their team’s performance in overseas conditions – a promising beginning squandered culminating in a series defeat. A multitude of

Ebb And Flow – With The Highs Come The Low

Phew! Finally back on the blog… I don’t understand why it happens in spurts but perhaps the innate writer in me is layered and covered in laziness and inertia a tad too soon. But am back with my latest musing. And it is not just slice of life but also something that I have watched and observed with others. As we go along our merry way in this river of life… we go thru many an ebb and flow. Those who manage to stay on and extend the high and swing back up quickly from the low are the ones who are

Paper Tigers & Lions Den! India’s Tour to SA

There was a time when Team India were labeled tigers at home and puppets abroad. This was the phase when other cricketing nations toured India and lost series after series comprehensively. They were bamboozled by crafty spin bowling and often complained for bad water and poor hygiene environment. India on the other hand never managed a decent performance overseas. They were smothered by pace and swing, they also did not have an option of bad water and poor hygiene. Barring a few Indian players none managed to make an impact. Then the tides changed, One man inspired a bunch of

Young Team India Head South Africa For Their Biggest Challenge

The emotional hangover has yet not settled, and the viewers have an African Safari for experience in the next forty-eight hours. The legend has just about moved on with his commercial engagements, some having already misfired, yet we the viewers are not complaining. Yes, in hindsight we definitely would have preferred a complete tour. The coolest captain made some strong statements before leaving India, if he fails ‘God save thy Man’ but if he pulls of the coup we all so desperately want then ‘Indian Cricket’ will achieve a status like never before. The home team captain has already rubbished

Rebut To The Author Who Wrote “Rebut To Chennai Super Kings Fans vs 1.230 Billion Indians”

Pretty lousy in your rebuttal Mr. Author! For starters, if the article written by Anuj was “unnecessary”, you needn’t have published it in the first place. You ought to be careful of your words when you write dude! Being a critic is alright, but you’ve gone the extra mile, hurting the sentiments of many with your HATRED! So, here goes my rebuttal of certain points you’ve made. 1. Dude, all the teams playing in the IPL have the same amount to spend on their players. It’s no different for CSK/MI and for the rest of the teams. Ain’t our fault

Why Dhoni’s Silence On IPL Spot-Fixing Is Not Justified!

The last few days in Indian cricket have been the darkest since the 2000 match-fixing fiasco which saw the fall of stalwarts like Mohammad Azharuddin and Ajay Jadeja amongst others. The names of famous players went for a toss as Indian cricket’s image got tarnished. After 13 years, the rot of fixing is back but with a new name… This time, it is called spot-fixing! But the fact of the matter is that fixing of any sort remains ‘fixing’ and courtesy that, the sport and the ordinary cricket fan have suffered the most. From cricketers to bookies to team owners…

Chennai Super Kings Fans vs 1.230 Billion People

  1)  Oh please bear with me! Yes we are indeed the most consistent team. Guess its one of the similar reason that people of other cricketing nations unite while playing against Australia as well. Aussies, the most consistent team used to have the maximum haters as well. 2)  Majority of the people love MSD, Ashwin , Raina , Jadeja and Chika (Kris Srikkanth)… Then I think its definitely not the players. Its got to be the CSK fans who add fuel to the fire by acting fanatical. But are we the same fans who praised Pakistanis at MAC stadium.

Why CSK Look Good To Win IPL6

As I write this one, CSK are joint top of the points table alongside Rajasthan Royals, a team which just broke some over confidence that might have set in the yellow brigade. For me this loss comes at the right time. It will help the team get back to the drawing board with a few concerns after the easy victories that came their way off late. They also lead the fairplay awards tally. Apart from this the orange and purple caps sit proudly on the heads of two of the most consistent men in the yellow brigade, Mike Hussey and
