April 27, 2010 2 comments

IPL 2010 closing ceremony, the billion dollar are more brand IPL, was this empire build costing the Indian Nation its Vaues, and Trasparency pormoting Corruption in a game which is like a religion for its people.

This Country has proved it many a times the rich and the powerful have been taken to task and pulled and punished for breaking laws regularly.

Here the case was so many, so many very rich, very popular, very influential and very powerful joined hands  on a very challenging job of setting up IPL which they did and brought it to levels which India had not seen before.

But…But… they all forgot there are limits and checks and crosschecks and rules to be followed. In the rush to make big big money under the shield of IPL success they committed themselves to acts which they thought are manageable.

But destiny and People like Tahroor who was the odd man in the ring as he happed to be out spoken and broadly transparent in fact triggered the whole “Pot of Evils to leak and eventually break in to peaces spilling all the filth all over”One good man Tharoor, though he has allegation on his head was enough to trigger the fallout…  There is no comparison to Tharoor to Modi.

Tharoor went with grace and he will be winning elections and people will be with him and our great Modi even in disgrace is acting like a victor only time will teach him right lessons, just wait for the time to pass. Read more…

Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar plays a shot during the second one day international (ODI) cricket match between India and South Africa at The Captain Roop Singh Stadium in Gwalior on February 24, 2010.

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar became the only player to score a double ton for a world record during the second One-dayer against South Africa in Gwalior. The double century came off just 147 balls and was a complete master piece from the master batsman. With 200 runs, the little master also broke Saeed Anwar and Charles Coventry’s record of 194 runs respectively. Tendulkar smashed 25 fours and 3 sixes during his marathon innings, much to the delight of the crowds at Captain Roop Singh Stadium. Let’s congratulate Sachin Tendulkar for adding yet another feather in his cap.

Sachin’s Innings has somuch to say beyond Cricket, It reiterates his comitment towards India and the pleasure he takes in being Indian first, and who has raised the heads of Indians with pride,  in his untiering journey to be on top of the world circket, record books.  This is a realy treat to Indians, in thirties, and sujected to critisisim from  some quarters on his getting old, he proved all his critics wrong.

Will,  Thakrey Brigade,  put a ban on Sachin celebrations, accross India , by all Indians,  And claim, the right to be happy is only with the Mumbaikars and Mharashtrans, as Sachin is a Mahrashtrian. 

A point is made by Sachins bat, that  Sachin is Indian first.  

I wish Sachin many innings of  greater glory.  Let India celebrate.

February 16, 2010 1 comment


Deccan Chargers Winners of IPL 2, Upset with IPL Managment, It is shame, of IPL a Francise has to fight for its rights in Courts. Are the venues fixed by IPL Management.

Feb 15 Deccan Chargers today slapped a legal notice on the Indian Premier League and threatened to skip the third edition of the Twenty20 league beginning next month if its home matches are not re-allotted to Hyderabad and Vishakapatnam.

In a legal notice sent to BCCI president Shashank Manohar, Deccan Chargers’ solicitors have asked the cash-awash league’s authorities to reconsider their decision of relocating the home matches of the defending champions to Hyderabad and Vishakapatnam.

The notice claimed that the decision to shift the matches have been taken “arbitrarily, unilaterally, without our client”s consent and in complete breach of the Franchise Agreement dated April 10, 2008 pursuant to which the rights and obligations of both the parties i.e. BCCI-IPL and the Franchisee, i.e. our client are governed”.

The notice further charged IPL that the decision to shift the matches was against the objective of having franchisees from various regions of the country and against public interest and consequently was not acceptable to Deccan Chargers.

Game of Cricket Ditched, by Kotala Pitch. Cricket is off, Blame game is on.

Disappointed and angre, the full capacity crowd was cheated, on a Sunday in holiday season become mere spectator to the Pitch Drama, ultimately abandoning the Match.

Match with the full capacity Fans sent for a six. Kotla Let down,  may raise question, and  exerts pressure on much talked India’s  Prepared ness of the common wealth  games, scheduled in the Indian Capital  very soon.

In a very embarrassing turn of events, the fifth One-Day International between India and Sri Lanka at the Ferozshah Kotla Stadium in Delhi has been called off due to poor pitch conditions.

Since the start of the play on Sunday morning, it was clear that the newly laid Kotla track was uneven, with a few deliveries giving the Sri Lankan batsmen a scare. Tillakaratne Dilshan was hit on his left arm as a ball took off unexpectedly, leaving the batsman in pain.

But play continued till the 24th over when a Sudeep Tyagi delivery kicked off the pitch and skipper wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni struggled to collect it.

Sri Lankan batsman Thilan Kandamby first had a word with Dhoni before he approached the umpires. Umpires Marais Erasmus and Shavir Tarapore soon conferred and Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara was seen gesturing to his teammates from the dressing room.

Sri Lanka were 83/5 when skipper Kumar Sangakkara came onto the field to have a chat with the umpires and his Indian counterpart MS Dhoni. He looked clearly unhappy with the conditions.

Subsequently, Match Referee Alan Hurst also walked in and they were joined by Kotla curator Vijay Bahadur Mishra and BCCI Pitch and Grounds Committee chairman Daljit Singh. India coach Gary Kirsten joined them along with his Sri Lanka counterpart Trevor Bayliss.

Delhi and District Cricket Association officials, including vice president Chetan Chauhan, had offered another pitch to Hurst.

But the final official announcement came more than one-and-half hours later and by then the two teams had already left the venue, along with the officials.

The Kotla tracks have been long criticised for their quality, including during the Champions League T20 tournament. No Ranji games were played in Delhi this season due to the pitch. 

A huge crowd that had kept aside the weekend to watch the Delhi match was disappointed. While some spectators held up posters saying “I want my money back”, some fans turned violent and broke the chairs in the stadium.

“DDCA regrets the inconvenience caused to all spectators and others. We offer our apologies to them,” Arun Jaitely, DDCA President said in a statement.

He also said all gate tickets will be refunded. “All gate tickets will be refunded. A detail announcement in this regard will be made shortly,” he said.

The embarrassment, however, may not end here as ICC’s latest code of conduct regarding poor pitches states that a first such breach should be met with “a suspension of the venue’s international status for a period of between 12 and 24 months together with a directive for appropriate remedial action and the need for prior ICC re-accreditation as an international venue”.

The last time a match was abandoned on India was in 1997 in Indore. Jayasuriya, who scored 31 on Sunday, was the only player to feature in both the matches.

As reported in the media.
