India did not win this world cup.They said it was a big lie that was covered up by Dhoni’s men.It’s true that Men in Blue were fatigued and most of the key players including Dhoni and Yuvraj were unfit for playing this worldcup.But what could have we done , the schedule was way too hectic.Immediately after IPL the worldcup started.Even if the injured players were rested we would have lost this world cup.I think it is a waste of time complaining about
Rewind into past
‘Glorious moments are often hidden among the Shittiest of times,You just need Guts to find those’
“Remember the 1996 Word Cup Quater-Finals,there was a media news that Navjot Singh Sidhu was suffering from viral fever.The team management asked sidhu if he was okay with playing the game.It was sidhu who took the gut decision to play the game and he won the match for India.This is an example of ,NOT allowing fitness reasons to stop your spirit of sportsmanship”
“Another instance, was India’s match against Pakistan when Wasim Akram was suffering from some injury I guess.He played the game still and pulverised the Indian top order.Akram won that match at Sharjah single handedly for Pakistan.Sportsmanship”
I am sure Playing irrespective of the injury was again one of Dhoni’s Gut decisions like the one I noticed from other players in the past.If we had won, the media would never have cribbled about the loss.
We can’t expect success all the time.Failures do come very often,and they are very much necessarry only then we understand the value of success.This time we didn’t succeed , so what !!
For Fuck sake , stop complaining about India’s poor performance
There was another intance when Saurav Ganguly failed in the so called fitness test on the day of match.The match was the final of a Triangular series between INDIA/ NEW ZEALAND and AUSTRALIA.The Aussies were the clear favourites to win the final as they had been on top form and had dominated throughout the series.The venue of the final was in Eden Gardens the home of fanatic Indian cricket fans.Nobody wanted to repeat the 1996 Semi-final.And it was Saurav’s first final on his home turf.The flash news on NDTV read
“Saurav fails the fitness test ; Rahul leading the Final”
It might have been true, or it could have been like this as well.We wanted just good cricket and do not want any mob in Eden Gardens, that too.The history said Indians have never lost any final in the Eden Gardens.Still the Aussie storm was so strong that the mob looked inevitable.
So,what happened was,a Drama of fitness test and Saurav failed in the fitness test (strangely ,the coverage was shown on all TV channels) and the local fans were saved from watching their own lad being pulverised by the Aussie turf-rollers on their own soil.
The cricket community either managed the media very well by not letting them know the real reason or even the media was an accomplice in this lie for a greater good.
So, What you need to do now…
Sit back and enjoy the final on Sunday.Have a Gala time with friends…it’s WORLD CUP final between PAKISTAN and SRI LANKA.
Update: Pakistan won the Final of the T20 World cup England.Who’s next time Sri-Lanka ??
