The test match at Bombay (I don’t like saying Mumbai) between India and England brought a great disappointment, in terms of the result and some unusual yet idiotic behavior from the crowd as well as few former (so called) test players.. Forgot to mention, an umpire as well… A friend of mine was supporting England team right from the day they landed on Indian soil…He wanted England to win just because his DADA was not in the Indian team..
It is amazing to see how people put an individual ahead of the country… He never used to ask the score during the match; rather he used to ask “How many of your team gone??”.. That word “Your” really sucks … Even an umpire falls to this category of people… Sometimes I used to ask this question to myself “what if a third umpire gives a wrong decision in spite of having the luxury of modern technology” and now it has been proven that even the third umpire is useless…
I suggest why not have a panel of umpires (say 6-8) who could discuss on each and every decision referred by the umpire on field.. Later they can be allowed to cast votes and the decision with more number of votes will be the final verdict…… Actually this can give our players some rest till the decision is given…
Why do you have to punish only the players for not following the so called code of conduct?? What about these idiots who do not even know whether the bails are intact with the stumps or is it in air (In spite of seeing the replay some 20 times)??? Or was he trying to be too loyal to the British… I sometimes (actually many times) get this feeling that many people in India have not yet come out of the coma of colonialism…. Thanks to our politicians for having planted such a doubt in peoples mind ( Behaving exactly the way British used to before the Independence) for the past 59 years…( Great job… Well-done guys keep it going.)
There are people who say that they have adopted Australia as their home team… Why??? Coz they win almost all the matches they play and almost on every soil they step into… I have a small question to these people.. Suppose if your son/daughter does not perform well in exams, will you say to him/her that you are no more my son/daughter; I have adopted the boy/girl next door as my child… If you say so, you will be thrashed left and right by the child’s parents next to your house… (Have some common sense guys…)
Indian team might have performed badly…. I am an optimist who still believe in my team… I am still an ardent supporter of Indian Cricket team…We will bounce back (Bounce back hard). People need to have a bit of patience to actually see this Indian team evolve…. We will be there as on of the strongest contenders of World Cup 2007….. Keep watching and Keep supporting…..
