There is an overdose of cricket and there is little quality in watching bowlers being smacked in batting friendly wickets and smaller grounds. The number of blogs and comments that are anti-IPL have become a tad too much

#Playingitmyway: The Sachin Tendulkar Autobiography Review

“This book all in all is pretty dry, but for some strange reason in the end it still made me cry”. It perhaps is my little way of being privy to the journey of the hero we have revered so much. The book in itself traverses his journey in finest detail.

Teach him that for every critic there is a friend. It will take time, I know; but teach him, if you can, that the respect earned the hard way is

India vs Bangladesh: Will it turn out to be David vs Goliath?

We always love it when David challenges Goliath. Those stories in cricket are cricketing dots in a timeline view of the entire cricket we watch.  When the fable was narrated, we’d picture a sad looking David, getting inspired to knock off the complacent Goliath. Bangladesh, have yet to get out of that skin of David after playing around 27-28 years of international cricket. They are like those 100-meter sprinters who choke in a marathon race.
