Recommended Posts

We have blind bhakts who feel they can do no wrong once they are treated normally they might come back down to earth.
Nope they won't- Fame ka naasha hai yeh.
They will go bonkers about the lack of recognition and will become even more aggressively psychotic like before.

TBH, they don't care about cricket as a whole.
Only IPL/ tourneys Somewhat matter because that has been a tradition but cricket is not an emotion like it was before.
People now simply don't give the * about cricket- they are too busy with their life to entrust the cricketers to uplift the honour of the country.
We are not the closeted socialist country with a hapless economy anymore that we need the cricketers to talk for our nation in international stage because our government/army can't do anything.
Let the current generation grow old/die out - the Hype about Indo-Pak cricket games will also start to quieten down

Dhawan is not at all popular LMAOO.
It is largely Kohli and Dhoni now.
Though I don't think Kohli will get ever fired and shamed publicly, he will never have a positive legacy in history.
He has silently built a bad perception and his inability to win a major tournament will worsen it despite him winning bilateral LOIs.
His overconfident **** talk don't help either.
Dhoni has the entire fanatic Tamil fan brigade eating out of his hands.
Not to mention he has won all the major cricket tournaments and has an effective PR who can throw all his shitty stuff under the carpet.
He is one of the last cricketers people have a massive emotional connection with
But Kohli and the future generation is going to be the ones who get forgotten after retiring.
I feel like Social media has actually instilled a silent Shame in Indians about liking cricket(especially In new Generation urban areas) because it is only played in a limited number of countries and the white counties which play the game don't consider it as their chief sport.
We are gradually realising that The world is not limited to Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Australia , England and WI.
And I don't think People will be interested playing Nepal, Afghanistan, etc etc, even if they become ridiculously good.
Also a silent negative perception about cricketers being party *boys who only care to date Bollywood starlets is building up.
Progress maybe slow but eventually we might see cricket going downhill in terms of popularity in the country.
Especially if football becomes really big.

Not only big players, even the "best" players of neighbourhood cricket academies have hugely inflated egos and behave just like Regina George from that classic film Mean Girls.

I agree and add to that cricket is gradually losing its appeal in metros with younger generatiom. I see my nephews/niece showing very little interest in cricket, in fact I don't think any kid in my family plays cricket. Its all basketball or football. Sure IPL gets their attention for a month, but I just don't see them care about cricket or cricketers like we did.

He will go to  HOTEL  CORAL  ESSEX  and be pawned  !

 

The hotel has a neon sign and the lights of the following letters are not working

 

- - - EL    C - - - -     ES - - -

 

 

He will see it as a chance to make money on the side and get on his knees. The irony being most of his customers through the night will be fellow team members.

I don't put it beyond Kohli and drunk shastri to drop Murali Vijay and play dhawan

 

Like they did for no reason in West Indies when Vijay was dropped for garbage Rohit Sharma

Vijay wont be dropped....Dont worry.

it seems dhawan has shot himself on his foot by getting a pair...Seems he is destined to be dropped though I would prefer him to be in the 11. RAHUL will also play and Rahane too. Karthik Seems to be in good form and he may end up coming ahead of Hardik in the line up.

My dear bowler SHAMMI who is seriously required as it seems the attack is going to be

umesh/ishant/shammi/hardik and One Spinner most likely Ashwin ( i prefer Kuldeep but my preference is not imp).

with this bowling attack it seems ISHANT and UMESH are in form and have some teeth.

Shardul got just one wicket , so it seems he is also not looking too good.

Shammi bowled 21 overs and did not get a single wicket where as Umesh and ishant bowled 18 overs each and got 4 and 3 wickets respectively ..it shows that there is some thing really wrong in Shammi's bowling as normally he is a bowler who is bound to get one wicket in 10 overs even on FLAT tracks so this is crazy figures no wicket in 21 overs- it is a very unimpressive analysis, it seems Shardul could be picked ahead of Shammi if Shardul is looking good in the nets.

Hardik also did not bowl well and did not get any wickets..thats also not good and Hardik's bowling is a little inconsistent but i have faith that he will suceed as he has the capability to stretch and can push himself and since he will be the fourth pacer, he would get hardly 10 overs to bowl in a day so he should try to bowl fast and quick and get wickets.

 

Kuldeep is bound to suceed if he is selected...seems jadeja wont play and ashwin may play ahead of Kuldeep.

Shami is playing a match after a long time.  Perhaps after a gap of 3 months. He was bound to be rusty.

 

Whereas Umesh, Ishant and Shardul have all played cricket in this time.

 

This is why practice matches are so important.

 

The main issue with Shami is whether his mental focus is back after the allegations by his wife.  If he is focused, he will improve a lot as he gets some overs under his belt.  If he has not got his focus back, it would be a big risk playing him.

I dont think cricket is loosing popularity across India, I have seen boys playing the game with same enthusiasm as it has brought in huge amount of money,they are well aware evwn if they dont make the national team,they can afford a luxury life by getting ipl contracts,the craze in metros seems a little dull just as the kids dont get those open spaces to play the game which they used to have 15-20 years ago,but still they go to academies to sharpen their cricketing skills,the fading popularity which you re talking here is happening with football too,the Latin nations have been talked about their  loosing interest towards football.

Its just happening with every sport,in some its quite rapid,while there are some nations where the decline is gradual..the world has become chaotic than it was before people dont crave for any particular game no more,anxiety to stay competitive socially is eating their passion ,emotions sadly....
