Is this cricket?

Munia was disgusted with me for not being happy with India's victory today. My point that it was not good cricket, England being without 7 members of their ashes team, did not wash water with her. The truth is that I dont consider this to be an Indian team bcos this is not the best 11 we have. Adding to that Chappel's arrogance, More's blatant high-handedness and Dravid's shameless spinelessness....no, there's no support for this team from within me. I do like it when youngsters like Sreeshant or Raina come good..but support for the team? NO WAY! How do you guys feel?

even i hate to see this team win,it is not about ganguly being thr anymore its the misuse of power by undeserving ass.... like more and that bio-mechanist.more ,chappel and dravid now give a feeling that they r bigger than the game,they can do whatever they want all they give is balls to the indian sentiments.

yes munia i would have been happy. because thats the only way things will change. whats happening now is disastrous for the future of the game in this country. chappel has dangled the WC carrot and everyone is dancing along..but think of the fact that for one raina coming up, we have 8-9 young promising cricketers who are falling by the wayside.

the only thing i know is i feel happy when india wins, i feel sad or angry when india loses, and i DO NOT feel happy for the team that beats india, even tho i may grudgingly accept that on a given day, they were better than us. of course saying this means i accept the fact that i am not 'mahaan' in that i dont celebrate when india loses, whatever maybe the goings on behind doors, that i am very 'not happening', and i absolutely stand by it. it also means that all said and done, i too luv the game..........and that is it really. it is just a game!!!!

I really hate to see this team win. Its not becoz saurav has been dropped but becoz of the servile attitude of dravid and the high-handedness of Mr More. Rahul dravid appears a disconcerted man with the worst man management skills and More is cleverly exploiting the shift in the BCCI powers to his advantage. Chappell is certainly the winner; he is coaching INDIA without any prior formal coaching experience (he never got to coach any of australias county teams), he is earning good money as well as fame, he has migrated from the coach to the boss of the team and most importantly for him there is none in the board to raise his voice against him even when he points the middle finger to kolkata crowd. Indian cricket at the moment is mired in politics and favoritism principles and god save indian cricket

As the second hand Indian team keeps on winning I cant help but whining. Why is that i dont feel happy when the Indian team wins these days. Is it just about Sourabh. I dont think so.. And Opu's summarised it will. Its now a den of corruption. A corruption of the mind. And I dont like corruption anywhere..
