About a week ago I made an impulsive decision to abstain from posting cricket related issues in my blog at least for the next few months. (Un)fortunately I am finding it difficult to abide by that rash resolution. There is so much going on in the cricketing world; The Ashes, The West Indies contract dispute,
The prime quality expected in a cricketer playing for an international team is self-motivation. Cricket was well into its Glitz-ridden era when kambli padded up for
Despite kambli’s abysmal decline of form and stature, Sachin made sure that he was given one last opportunity. When Sachin became the captain it was he who stood behind kambli and backed him. This, I feel, is the only move that comes anyway close to unethical in Sachin’s glorious career. But again, Captains with preferences are not uncommon even from olden days. Kambli didn’t show even the slightest amount of fire in his belly during his supposed “resurrection.”
A decade has gone by now where kambli has dabbed his hands in the showbiz and entertainment world. Just when he seemed to have become a ghost to the cricketing world, he has now thrown a sucker punch at his long standing mate via a reality show , revealing that sachin did not encourage or motivate him enough in his career. The irrational, angry part of my mind comes up with 3 words in response to this…”Load of Crap.” The rational part of my mind?? For once it agrees with the irrational part!!!
