India Win T20I Cricket Series Against England: Reversing The Syndrome And On With Experiments!

Thanks to India’s non-stop experimentation we got to see a brand new opening partner, none other than India captain Virat Kohli, with Rohit Sharma, and the duo treated us to one of the most exhilarating batting displays in recent times. Rohit was the dominant partner hitting the ball all around the park in his cracker of an innings of 64 runs off 34 balls with 5 sixes and 4 fours while Kohli played the sheet anchor role perfectly, allowing Rohit go berserk. They piled up 94 runs in just the ninth over, and the momentum thus built never slowed down as Suryakumar Yadav, the sensation of the 4 th T20I match, came in at no.3 and made a quickfire 32 in 17 balls. And then, the run-feast was left open to Kohli and Hardik Pandya both of whom played some incredible hits over the fence to post India’s highest ever T20 total against England, 225 runs to win for the demoralized visitors.   The match was almost sealed in favour of India, although England did try putting up a brave front with J

Asia Cup Cricket: What A Relief, India In Super Four!

Yes, it is indeed a huge relief that India have reached the Super Four stage of the Unimoni Asia Cup-2018 and that they are going to play Pakistan at least two times, the big one coming up tomorrow in Dubai. Because, Team Hong Kong has suffered two losses--one at the hands of Pakistan and the other to India tonight, the latter being a most unwelcome thriller for Indian fans. This sense of relief owes its origins to two basic reasons, like it or not. First, after the ODI series loss and the Test series disaster in England Team India has suffered a telling loss of credibility. There, only captain Virat Kohli played with some of the bowlers in tandem, and now here in UAE even the captain is missing with the one day specialists brought in again. Therefore, you never know who in Team India will play and who will play how. Upsets are common in tournaments, and last night Afghanistan eliminated Sri Lanka, one of the main contenders for the Cup despite everything. Tonight's match

A Tale of Two Teams!

There are two Teams you know all about. One Team lacked its usual stalwarts and was happy to get what it achieved. Maybe a little more effort, a little more risk. But the team leader did not even come out to take charge. The other Team had all its stalwarts, but still did want to achieve what it could have achieved. A few points would illustrate this further: If someone does excellent in the job assigned to him, you are very right to promote him. But after promoting him you certainly do not want to deprive him of the job itself. Maybe you want him to excel in another important job, but at the same time you must give him time to finish the first one satisfactorily.  If somebody is corrupt, he will be at it whatever job you assign. First you must make sure that he had given up corruption permanently. So, it does not make any logic to put him out of one job and assign another. Better put him out permanently of any job. If you have to bow to pressure, you must do so consistently too.
