Coming back to cricket, it is shocking that cricket kills cricket! ODI and IPL Twenty 20 matches have killed its own Test matches! Now die concept of cricket is, hit die ball hard, grab as many runs as you can, no matter even if you play cross- bat shots and earn! Gone that term that Cricket is a gentleman’s game! Every ball is to be played according to its merit, but it is ignored nowadays. More over, it is felt that winning either by hook or by crook has become the general concept. There are only a few stroke and stylish players, whose game will be very impressive to watch.

My uncle tells me that Glenn Turner, former skipper of New Zealand was a very stylish batsman. And so was Barry Richards of South Africa. In India we have Rahul Dravid, a perfect stroke player who treats every ball according to its merit. But the sad thing is that he is underutilized, while Sachin is treated with velvet gloves. Another drawback with our cricketer is the lack of devotion to the game.

Our boys should read the autobiographies of world famous cricketers. For example, John Snow, the former pace bowler of England (a bank official) used to visit his farm house during week ends and chop off woods with an axe. This was to enable him to develop muscles and wings.

The moment they pick up a few wickets and become popular, they fly sky high, make more money by acting in commercials, hit the bottles and team up with the washed up Hindi movie actresses, who always looks for such players! This is a fateful situation here in India. It will never change!
