A heart-wrenching tale

Killing Test at its best!

It was a pitch that even the best bowlers of all ages would have struggled to come to terms with… a pitch that had the batsmen licking their lips and the bowlers praying for the heavens to open up and provide them with much needed reprieve... a pitch that faced tremendous criticism and bored the spectators to death. In short, it was a pitch that was ideal for murdering Test cricket.

An ultra-successful opening ceremony, people shaking to the rhythm of the swaying cheerleaders, the exhilarating contests on display and most of all, crowds pouring-in like thunder clouds dumping rain on a peak monsoon afternoon, all point to just one fact -the Indian Premier League is fast gaining fame and reputation.

Hashim ‘The Rock’ Amla

At Eden’s Theatre of Dreams, Hashim Amla nearly pulled off a miracle with his marathon 8-hour batting effort and almost spoilt India’s quest to retain their Numero Uno status in the ICC team rankings for Test playing nations.

Demise of the bowler

Since my early childhood, as far back as I can recall, cricket has always enthralled me. Not just as a game, but at one stage, it had become a beacon of my life. The day started with watching coverage of whatever matches were being telecast and ended with stuffing my mind with facts and trivia by reading cricket books or magazines.

Let’s root for Tests

For a die hard cricket devotee Test cricket will always remain at the pinnacle.

Masala tea…umm…Masala cricket

I do not exactly remember how and when was the first time that I tried a cup of masala tea, but it has definitely been a few years.
