Winning is delight. In sports it gives us rare moment of oneness….rare moment of delight…rare moment of unity.

The Mahi Army is giving us more and more goosebumps nowadays.  match after match they are looking invincible. The way they (yesterday) won T20 match vs Sri Lanka shows their fighting spirit. Down and out. Infact I watched soap opera yesterday thinking that match is lost. But to my delight WE won.

I am great cricket fan. And I understand cricket. After all I have over 25 yr of ‘watching’ cricket experience. I may prefer to play with tennis ball than with the real ones (because i fear for my ‘balls’). I analyse games like many of our commentators wont’. Infact of late most of the commentary team on Neo are repetetive. Excellent shot. Excellent delievery (!). too muchrepetition to the point of irritation. And on news channels the analysis is even worse. Infact think of an experience viewer like me to hear expert (!) comments fro likes of Madan Lal, Yashpal Sharma, Nikhil Chopra, Chetan Sharma, Nayan Mongia. These were International cricketers who did not live upto their potentials. And imagine thay analysing cricket performances when they could themselves not follow them. Imagine Kiran More analysing. Now we all know that it is during his tenure as Chairman Selection Committee Indian Cricket underwent through one of its worst phase. He then shifted to ICL to ru(i)n it…!

I reteriate that I can analyse better. Sehwag is getting run out after another. Although he is in great knick. This is because of pressure to be a good runner. He has seen graet batsmen  like Dravid, Ganguly and VVS Laxman criticised for not good runners. Inthis eagerness they aremaking mess of things match after another. Coach should calm them Now. Now what is Robin Singh doing with the team. Now that putting extra pressure on team. And also on BCCI in this times of global recession. Fielding is pathetic. Individual efforts are their but to give credit to excess bagaage’robin singh’ for it is not due. Venkatesh Prasad is definitely doing job that is wort noticing.

Winning is delight. In sports it gives us rare moment of oneness….rare moment of delight…rare moment of unity. And what more if its in cricket its balle balle…
