Cricket Vibes

After many years India is fast adopting a positive ruthless attitude and is winning matches consistently. Defeated Aus in ODI 2-0, Aus in Test 2-0 and defeated England in ODI with a 4-0 lead. But some people, so much used to a negative mindset, are giving odd reactions.

One reporter of a channel started babbling what England is doing and what it's supposed to do. Well, it's a fact that the weaker team always loses and you don't ask, hey buggers, why are you so weak! You criticize them identifying the areas of weakness. But you have to laud the winning team for its victory. Mercifully the reporter was cut short.

Another scribe wrote that England lost the last two matches due to the D-L method. Yes, the D-L rules are complex, but it cannot possibly harm the better team. In the Kanpur ODI (Nov 20, 2008) India was in a sound position, 198/5 needing only 43 runs off 9 overs and at that point they won by 16 runs due to D-L. What's wrong in that?

In the Bangalore ODI (Nov 23, 2008) D-L put India only at great disadvantage: they started the innings for a 50 over match, then they faced 44 overs and after the last interruption the match was reduced to just 22 overs. Having played 17 overs already India had only five overs left suddenly. This was a defeat situation, because they didn't play for a 22 over match. But Team India changed gear brilliantly and plundered 60 runs off five overs and so the D-L rationalization made the final target a very stiff one. Even then Engaland had a great chance, but Team India played better and won. What's wrong in that?

Be positive, yaar.
