Just like in flash, in life too one needs to realise when it is time to pack. But it does not come naturally to a man who has always played the 'blind' and taken his chances in life.
Whether or not lady luck obliges, this man remains unfazed by the risks involved in his belligerent ways. But sometimes it is just once too often. The sorry end to Sourav Ganguly's IPL innings has come as a shock to his supporters, but some would say 'Dear Dada' missed the tacit message which underlined the decision of his own team to not retain him. It was indication enough that the management was not sure about what he brings to the table.
The other franchises decided to play it safe. And one cannot really blame them for it. IPL is as much about money as it is about cricket. Hence the intention was clear, invest in the future.
