Gulu's Blog: Drugs, drama and fireworks! None on the pitch!
by Gulu Ezekiel
Oct 16, 2006
Just 10 days into the Champions Trophy and they has been action and drama galore, not all on the field of play.

Imagine the lowest total in the qualifying league being 80 all—by the holders of the title, the West Indies! And still they easily qualified along with Sri Lanka, the joint winners in 2002.

They have already been three centuries scored—two by Upul Tharanga—but the bowlers have generally dominated. The big guns, Australia will fire on Wednesday and it will be interesting—and not so much fun of you are a Windies fan—to see how the holders fare against the mighty world champions.

Then again, who cares about the cricket alone? What about the weird sight of Herschelle Gibbs being cross-examined by the Delhi Police over a case that is now six years old?

Then at Jaipur it was an unscheduled fireworks display that broke the concentration of the Indian captain! And to top it all, Pakistan are once again self-destructing. After the captaincy musical chairs back home, we now have the shocking spectacle of their two star fast bowlers being sent home in disgrace after failing dope tests conducted by their parent body!

Wonder what else is in store over the next three weeks? Should be bucket-loads of masala to come!
