IPL 2013: Srinivasan and Sreesanth - two different worlds

N Srinivasan has never been a pushover - his performance in Kolkata on Sunday afternoon was masterly, something he backs himself to pull off each time. And unlike Srinivasan, Sreesanth probably doesn't have the wherewithal to go anywhere but down from here.

Given a choice, and the chance, S Sreesanth would probably have gone to watch Any Body Can Dance and not The Great Gatsby last week. The film, Gatsby, was not a patch on the book - they never are, are they? - but Sreesanth, if he'd seen it, would have started at the (somewhat altered) line: "The loneliest moment in life is when you watch your whole world fall apart, and all you can do is stare blankly".

Stare blankly is precisely what N Srinivasan is not doing. The gent is staring rather hard in the eyes of his critics, defiant as ever - he isn't about to let his world fall apart.

"I have done nothing wrong," said Srinivasan. It's a fair statement, I suppose, given that the man whose actions have pushed him into a corner is his son-in-law. Yes, haul me over the coals for this, but I don't believe Gurunath's crimes, if any, should be grounds for Srinivasan to be scrutinised. At least, not solely because they are close relatives.
