Roaring King Harbhajan!

Six of the second last ball reminded us of the 1986 match against Pakistan  Sharjah. It was Javed Miandad then who hit six of the last ball of Chetan Sharma and winning the match and ruining Sharma’s career . Harbhajan Singh was super charged when the ball crossed the ropes and with that India registered victory against Pakistan. It was a very exhilarating match like all India Pakistan match. Bhajji has always shown his potential with the bat and is a true match winner. He was roaring like a Lion King and one could not miss the tussle between him and Shoaib Akthar


Pakistan could well have made runs in excess of 280 but credit goes to Indian bowlers who restricted to 267 runs. It came down till the last over where Harbhajan Singh came to the party and hit a six when 3 runs were required of last 2 balls.India has now qualified for the Semis  along with SrilLanka. 

Black Tuesday

While one would have viewed great cricketing action in all formats of the game, the incident in Pakistan on 3rd March 09 has shattered the slightest amount of peace that was still prevailing in the minds of both the players and fans.

The Sri Lankan team was attacked in Pakistan some hours before the start of the Second Test Match at the Gadaffi stadium. The Lankan’s had shown a courageous move by agreeing to play cricket in Pakistan despite the fact that most of the countries had already backed out. The incident has been highly condemned by the cricketing bodies and the fans across the globe. More than 6 of the Lankan players got injured and chances are their carrier would be in stake. The question has already being raised to ban Pakistan as a venue from the international arena.
The attack by some filthy anti social elements translates a fact that Pakistan is no longer a safe venue for cricket. Similar sort of incident had happened while New Zealand had toured Pakistan in May 2002. There was an explosion in front of the hotel where the New Zealand Players were accommodated. Time and again such incidents dent the psyche of the players as well as the fans. Cricket is loosing its beauty due to such kind of incidents.

The IPL which is supposed to start in April 09 is under a cover as security will be a major concern in minds of every cricket players.

Steps taken by England Players of continuing the tour despite attack in Mumbai recently could be stated as ‘Courageous’, but we are very much sure that such moves will now be reduced to be termed as ‘Stupid Move’ rather than ‘Courageous’ .

We were all set to view cricket’s greatest debacle of the World cup in 2011 that was supposed to be hosted in the Asian countries. The recent attack has already raised question over the venue of the World Cup and our dream to watch the World Cup Finals at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai is now completely shattered!!

Princely Buthcered!!


The Prince and the Sultan together butchered the Lankans in a deadly style, allowing the men in blue to register their eighth straight win.

Yuvi has once again shown the power of his willow which he had during ODI series with England. He has been in some terrific form.

For Sultan of Multan- Viru, the only way to play game is Attack.

Poor Ajanta Mendis was hit all over the park and he would have reached Ellora as a result..

Both of them were in immaculate touch and one record after the other. Yuvi became the first batsman to score a century in Srilanka after 10 years, some moments, Viru became the second one.

Every cricket fan in India should remember that fantastic moment when Yuvi punched his fist in air and signaled toward Sachin in Pavilion balcony indicating “This one is for you buddy who’ve been victim of wrong LBW decisions.

It’s always said before start of match that on paper India’s batting is strongest in world, but with their running Juggernaut it seems justifying.

The present Indian side is properly balanced as we have some great playing guns in the side with the likes of explosive batsman in Viru, Yuvi, Gambhir, Dhoni, Raina, Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan and of course the Master Blaster. India’s bowling attack seems to be in great shape with Zak & Ishant in form of their life and well supported by leggie Ojha and medium pacer Praveen Kumar.

With the men in blue in supreme touch, and series win in their kitty, eying the top position in the ICC ranking is not far away. It’s a healthy competition amongst three teams India, South Africa and Australia.
