If there is one word that can explain Pakistan Cricket Team – it’s unpredictability. You never know which Pakistan team will turn up. One day they will come across as world beaters and the very next day they will look like the most ordinary team on the park.  For billions of India fans across the globe who bleed blue, the Pakistan team that played the final of Champions Trophy on Sunday were the world beaters. Fakhar Zaman just four innings into his international career, struck a [...]

India vs Pakistan Champions Trophy 2017

It doesn’t get bigger than this. The mother of all battles, it’s India vs Pakistan at Birmingham on the 4th of June. The cricketing ties between the two countries are at a standstill as the Indian government has taken a firm stand that they will not play cricket with their neighbors until the cross-border terrorism is completely stopped. In the wake of this decision, the only time the cricket lovers gets a taste of the [...]

Sachin Tendulkar – the name needs no introduction. Born on 24 April 1973 in Dadar, Mumbai, Sachin is considered the most complete batsman of all time. He was the face of Team India for more than two decades. Sachin started playing the game at the age of 11.  By the time he was 16, he was facing the likes of Wasim, Waqar and Imran in their own backyard when India toured Pakistan in 1989. He [...]

These last few days have not been good for the game of cricket. Touted as the gentleman’s game, the sport is in the news for all the wrong reasons. In a country where everybody is so engrossed with cricket that each has an opinion of his own, the news of match-fixing was a bolt from the blue. And we are not done yet by any means. The players involved in spot-fixing are under arrest and [...]

The Indian Premier League (IPL), the great Indian cricket circus, is into it’s sixth year and is a very successful event too. Yes, it has it’s detractors, but if it is going on for a sixth year in a row and the crowds are thronging the stadium, then it can be very well assumed that the event is a success. Going deep into what makes the event grand will leave you with many marketing master [...]

I will start this article with an anecdote. It is an incident that happened a few days back. Vishwaroopam was banned because it had a few lines against a religion they say, I saw the film but didn’t fiund any word leave alone a line insulting any religion. Coming back to the topic, the film was banned and the medium which I think stands for expression of ideas were nipped in the bud and the [...]

We Indians are very good at remembering the occasions and not the 364 days that are around that occasion. As we move in to February and are planning to celebrate Valentine’s day, we as a society have seem to forgot what happened on Dec 16 last year. The law will take it’s time as it does in India with all sorts of nonsense being thrown in as the reasons and all political parties engaging in [...]

Rahul Dravid unarguably and I use this word with much confidence here, was India’s finest no 3 batsman. A position he owned because of the amount of runs he made and how he got them. He made runs all over the world in difficult conditions where it seamed and swung he was more at ease than other Indian batsman because of his tight technique. A brilliant slip catcher, a record holder for playing 84 test [...]

Thank You Sachin !!! I was born around the same time Sachin started playing for India. My first cricket memory was Sachin smashing the Australians in the coca cola cup in 1998 in Sharjah. He was just unbelievable in the final and the match before. It was like even if god would come down and start bowling he would even smash him into the stands. From that day onwards he became my icon and cricket [...]
