Lone Man Standing…

That just about puts Punter’s innings in perspective. Such grit and resilience! A fine example of leading his team from the front. For him, just for him, I prayed hard that the Aussies would draw the match! I think post the match result, he will put this innings right at the top of his favourite… Continue reading »

The Ashes – Part III

Day 1 witnessed some proud moments: He surpassed 600 wickets on the very ground that was witness to a defining moment in his career; the place where he bowled the ‘Ball-of-the-Century’. He almost bowled it again to Strauss in the last test match. It was only befitting that the ground was a witness again to… Continue reading »

Mind if I ASK?

Small incidents in life teach you lessons, and remind you of some that were constantly drilled onto you as a kid. Remember how teachers always opened their study lessons with ‘Students do not hesitate to ask’. However silly, however stupid the question. Ask! You will come to know a lot of things you did not.… Continue reading »

Phew!!!!

That’s exactly what the Poms must have felt after they snatched a two run victory over the Aussies yesterday. There was a House-Warming ceremony at my best friend’s place. She had flown down after a year and since both sisters would be flying back again, her parents decided to have the pooja to invite all… Continue reading »

Underdogs on their way…

Finally the predictions are coming true, finally the underdogs are on their way. After seeing the delivery Strauss got in the last over on day 2 I was dead sure the lead of 99 runs that England had got would prove to be crucial in the end analysis. Warne was the killer yet again and… Continue reading »

Missing McGrath…

What a freak injury that was and bad timing! Surely the Aussies missed the Pigeon yesterday. Poms were on a rampage. 10 sixes and 54 fours in 79.2 overs!!! A run-rate of 5 throughout the day. Don’t want to take anything away from the Poms. 407 in a day in a test match is very… Continue reading »

Battleground Edgbaston

I’m glad I can finally call the Ashes a Battle. Engand are slowly putting up some fight, and some fright in the Aussie Camp. The first test had an exciting start. Harmisson had the Aussies bundled out for 190 and Glenn McGrath celebrated his 500 wickets in style by getting a five wicket haul for… Continue reading »

Ganguly hit 51. Should I be happy? No, I’m not! In 110 balls??????? For heaven’s sake we are playing ODI not a Test match! The pitch can’t be that bad! One can’t get so selfish to save his place in the team! I miss the old Ganguly, the man-in-charge. Have to put up a blog… Continue reading »
