Back after long gap

My last post on this blog was in May 09, Now its Oct 09. Was out of action for really long time....and was in a pursuit of a different goal. And since that has been postponed, am back to the pitch.

Yesterday's win over Auz was emphatic. It was great watching Dhoni hit aussies all over the fence. Super innings Dhoni.....a captain's knock and that to a new record of highest score by a captain against the kangarooooos......

This is what going to happen with Kolkata Knight Riders. The King Khan's team is placed at the bottom of the points table. The other backbencher teams (both Royals) have improved their performance and moved ahead. The big guns Gayle and Mc Cullum have not come up as expected. Dada is not at his best. He played a good knock against Rajasthan Royals but unluckily got out just when the team needed him. We all know what happened after that. (Yusuf Pathan and the Super Over).

The problem lies at team management. Give the captaincy back to Ganguly and see how the team leaps back. Ganguly is good at managing the team as a unit. Just look at his record as a captain. He is cutout fot that position. Buchanan and previously Chapell have always found fault with dada. They are the actual cause for his and teams' decline.

IPL version 2.0 released

The much awaited IPL season 2 has taken off with a bang. A few good knocks and shocks have already been witnessed. The Rajasthan Royals have straight away created a record for themselves. The record which no team ever wishes to break. The record for the lowest ever total in IPL T20. The absence of Tanvir, Watson is hurting them.

Many of the players remind me of Button. No, not the F1 speedster Jenson Button, its Benjamin Button of Curious Case....Senior players like Shane Warne, Kumble, Hayden....are awesome to watch, who says they have retired, Look at the passion in them, they are playing superbly. Many more are lined up to explode, cant wait to see Gilly, McGrath, and ofcourse our own dada, to follow their footsteps.

Blame it on....

After winning 4th ODI comfortably, India lost the 5th ODI comfortably. While 4th ODI will be remembered as Sehwag's masterpiece, 5th ODI can be remembered as Rohit Sharma's disaster at crease.

Sharma who is struggling in form, was responsible for Sehwag's wicket. This was echoed by kiwi commentators. He made Sehwag wait at non-striker's end while he practiced his shots. had he taken a few singles, rotated strike, Sehwag (who seemed desperate and itching to bat) might have gone to play another good innings. I guess this's the opinion of many. Also, he was involved in two run outs. He took a lot of time to score 43, Seems he has started practicing for the upcoming test matches from the last ODI itself. I guess whether he is in test sqad or not.

i said its coming

In my last post, I predicted that a score around 400 is coming and it came .... with a bang. We are now 2 up against kiwis and tomorrows match will be fun. The third ODI was a high scoring match. 392 was a huge score. Thanks to master blaster, he was at his peak, he was marvelous. His absence from 4th ODI might give an advantage to Kiwis

India vs New Zealand vs Rain

Sheh.....Rain has washed off second ODI. India was placed in a excellent position and had a good chance to take 2-0 lead. Tendulkar, who looked dull initially (played a supporting actor's role when Sehwag was the main hero) was back in action with a score of 61(69). Its really a good sign for Team India. At one time, the projected score was 400 (at 10 per over). With all the players in good form, it seems a big score is just a match away.

Wise decision

Indian Govt decision not to send our team as a repercussion of 26/11 Mumbai, proved to be lucky for our players. If the attack were on Indian team's convoy, the situation would have been worse. There would have been huge uproar among all Indians for action. With general elections just months away, Indian Govt would have reacted strongly.

Already there are talks of postponing/rescheduling the IPL due to security reasons. Given the resurgence of extremists in our neighbouring country, and elections round the corner, its going to be tough time for a decision on IPL.
