Strange Cricket...

ODI no. 2707
Kitply Cup - finalIndia v Pakistan
2008 season
Played at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur (neutral venue), on 14 June 2008 - day/night (50-over match)
Result Pakistan won by 25 runs

Once again we put up a fine performance through out the league stages, mmmm cannot be termed as league stages as there were not much matches, between finals and the league stages.
But how often do we see our team scrambling towards finals and losing it in the boundary as if it is an unknown territory. I am sure this might be the feeling of folks who have viciously started
watching cricket due to the heroics of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar where team revolved around him and fell like a house on fire around him.

But atleast that sort of one sidedness i.e. towards Sachin (not Towards opponents) prevail. Fine for the fact that every one started contributing . I strongly feel that the team effort in Defeat is still better than the one man's show in victory. Some of my friend's won't agree that Defeat is better than victory. Yes of course. But looking at the Team effort it has to come over the matches rather than the one man show is always the Show stopper. If he fails then it becomes the crunch game at that point itself.

So i'm strongly still in favour of cricket in my country with the mightiest self belief i have ever had for the team. Yes the team india is playing as team india now. Probably this might be the real dawn for the era of Indian cricket domination in the field.

Even after all these things and talks i have started watching cricket only because of Sachin and i', watching it only because of him. A true architect of cricket in which once said to be prevailed gentlemannes (My Discovery - Don't Grab a Dictionary) still prevails in Sachin....

Hats off to Sachin for which he has taken our cricket to the next level.
P.S - "Doctors beware of your jobs, Sachin in the field leads to one billion healthy Smiles:-)"

Me, Myself and the thinking Brain

I always love to express myself amidst others thinking that's the way to capture people's imagination.
I spend every single penny to be happy to the core thinking that's the way to live as if there's no tomorrow.
I spread my wings of imagination to explore the world thinking that's the way to purify youself
in draining world.
I jump in joy when i play cricket thinking that's the way to bring the child in you alive after all you cannot be an adult without being childish at times.
I punch hands in air when i solve my official issues with ease thinking that's the way to react when tough gets going and threatens to win dubious race in which you are the other racer.
I sob when i come through the difficult part of my life thinking that's the way to vent out
frustrations as i already mentioned myself as an expressive human.
Now the difficult part of my thinking brain takes lime light and asks me "You very expressive, joyous, imaginative, innovative "YOU" why do you think twice to act for sponsoring a child, who also has all the right to express your kind of behaviour".
My thinking brain works overtime these days thinking to alter my altar.

Three cheers for Indian triumph in Aussie den

To go ahead with the way Indians have played, yes we get the feeling that Indians are out there to match word with word also matching performance to performance starting from ball to ball and eye blink to eye blink.
We can see a transformation in this Indian team from rejecting the seniors and captain taking on the gamble with his youngsters. It seems to have well paid off. This was the same case in 2000 when dada too had started a new era in Indian cricket which we should not forget. When thinking about this team i have finally found a difference. There when dada started experimenting with some of the youngsters they let it slip by not fulfilling the faith of their captain.
But here like an age old fairy tale whom ever Dhoni asked to perform they have turned gold and performed like there is no other day to perform. That is the nice attitude to be spread among the team. The key to the success of modern day cricket is to adapt the conditions pretty quickly.
That has been the watch word which was instilled by Anil kumble, the man who took the mantle to the highest summit in the test series. That was well fought and this ODI series was truly a reflection of the hunger of new found indian team.
Let’s not jump the spots and get into the discussion of whether this is the team for WC-2011 instead we take the steps gradually and hope we revive ourselves for the newly attained throne amidst of the reviving controversies.

Drink, Drank, Drunk

I’ve got this energizing passion for drinking. More than that it is to spend time with friends in a lively way. I’m not insisting on the fact that this is the lovely way to spend time with friends. Whatever i’ve mentioned here is purely my opinion.
When going gets tough, tough gets going:-) come out of box to think that i’m still high from my yesterday’s drink. Nothing of that sort. I’ve had friends who were very much feeling offensive when we even take our drinks to their room in search process of a shelter with in the reach. But that always happens. But sooner or later we had not thought of the fact that those friends would come into the same groove of mine or even a notch higher to call them top notch party animals. It all happened in 1 or 2 years after our college days. Yes more than the fact that they started partying, the way they came out with an explanation does leave me in deep abyss of identity crisis:-)
I’ve become vivid watcher of “In high Spirits”, a TV programme which explained about the combination of spirits to keep up your higher spirits nothing but cock tail explanations. What ever you do if it is within your personal space and not interupting others’ personal space everything under your roof is pretty much fine on your part rather my part.
Lot of things come into my mind when i write this piece but still i love not to be Bacchanalian also on the other side not a teetotalar. Love to drink and spend time with my friends with a warning tag on my head hanging bright and a notch higher “Drinking is still injurious to health”.
