Indian cricketers would continue to let down the Nation’s fans as ever
Before; because they are part of a “Secular Team and not a National Team”
I have been closely monitoring Indian cricket PSL Live Streaming from quite sometimes now; but how deeply I was hurt when our team failed to qualify for World Cup and has forced me to carry out an insight analysis of the debacle. The team has not only played with the sentiments of over a billion people but also let down the National esteem as well. Some of my friends have even gone to extent of saying entire team as traitors. Are they?
I would try to take back my readers to money minting Shaarja one day cricket series of yesteryears where India had lost most of the finals either by hook or crook. Any common Indian could have analyzed the cause of such loss of esteem; but neither our cricketers nor Cricket Control of India (BCCI) had ever felt the humiliation of losing National prestige. Every defeat was considered mere game.
Though, some of the readers would debate the issue of linking politics with the game; but I would say that the games are the image of a Nation. We Indians have to understand and accept that so far none of the Indian cricketer, barring Kapil and few others, had thought for the Nation; but they have always played for individual records and status. Most of the times, our team had disappointed Indian fans repeatedly.
After over three decades of my study, I feel that the Indian cricketers would continue to let down the Nation as ever before because we are a “Secular Team and not a National Team“. Indian fans would continued to be deceived by not Sachin and Ganguly only but all those money minded cricketers; whenever Indian fans would like?. They would never perform when Nation wants; but would only perform to make individual records and mint money. The cricketer’s identity is with that of a Nation and not as individual entity. Once, Steve Waugh, Australian captain has made very important observation while replying to so-called Indian legendry Cricketer Sunil Gavaskar that Indian cricketers play for individual achievements. He was right and is even right toady. The Indian legendry cricketers; who had only played for themselves and not for the nation, have all the World Records of batting in their names but never had they played for the Nation. I am sure that 99% Indian cricket lover and fans would support my views.
Infact, Kapil Daa is also pursuing similar goals; and shares my views of awakening Indian Cricketers consciousness, but the barefaced Indian media has made these Self Centered Players (SCP) National heroes, despite knowing well that most of the world records holding Indian cricketers have always ditched the nation when Indian fans needed most.
Infact, these players have betrayed the faith of over a billion Indian in the recent world cup debacle. I still do not believe that our team was incompetent; but the Bengali entry and internal rift had ensured that Dravid does not get the credit to carry world cup home, thus, making a history. The similar story of internal rift amongst the players was aired by most of the channels, a few months later, as to why Indian team faired so bad? Truly speaking, the traitors are within us. A few selected traitors in the past like King Ambhi, Jaychand and many more; have made Mother India (MI) slave for over 1100 years; but the present teams betrayal had buried hopes of over a billion Indian.
I would like to comment on the style of getting out. How can you expect a player; after playing over hundred matches getting out with inner edge bold out? My repeated match video visuals analysis of Sachin, Ganguly and other player’s style of getting out, has indicated a set pattern. I still feel strongly that these players were unwilling horses who are forced to drink water because they are senior players. Simply these players applied inner edge to a inner swing rising ball to upstick the bails. Has, once; the team’s failure proved that billion Indians are being betrayed?
A very tricky question; indeed, needs to be read well and replied by our record holders. Readers should not be surprised as most of the players knew well as to how to get out without getting blamed?
Anyhow, with the time, our team perceives that it has become professional but infact the team actually began to drift towards glittering life styles of wealth. While witnessing matches, if every a common man can analyze as to how a player is performing so poorly or getting out why cannot BCCI? Though, our irresponsible media has been blaming Sehwag for his failures; but I would say that he always lost his wicket while playing a shot and not advertently delaying runs or trying to create a record at the altar of National esteem. So far various Indian veteran cricketers have almost all the records to their credit, but they had rarely performed when country’s billion fans wanted. Is it a matter of shame or pride?
