New Delhi: Seen a war? Watched a movie on war at least? Seen how the heroes gun down bad-bad villains despite being surrounded on all sides? It's called a script.
Seen a cricket match? Watched India against Australia? Saw how super-stars with the bat and ball fell apart against the hosts? It's called a sport. It's called a slump. It may be called an opportunity. It's definitely called life. And life is never scripted.
Missing the point here? If yes, then you're the target reader. From fans to foes, from Australian press to us back home, from experts to former players - no one has spared the chance to take pot-shots at the Indian cricket team.
From Laxman to Dhoni and right upto Fletcher, the now villainous characters of the national Indian cricket team have been blown to smithereens for their devastating form and performance. This write-up though is not a justification on behalf of the players or that 'monstrous cricket board of ours.' It is but a request to abandon the extremities that cricket fans in the country find themselves in, time and again.
