Gulu's Blog - Sound effects
by Gulu Ezekiel
Oct 30, 2006
It’s a surreal feeling sitting in the luxurious press box of the PCA stadium in Mohali. Sealed off and air-conditioned, most of the crowd atmosphere is cut off. So much so that at times the journos inside decide to slide open the windows to allow some of the sound effects into the ‘box’.

There were a fair share of roars when India were batting on Sunday, particularly with Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid scoring half-centuries.

But Dravid appeared to give up the ghost from the start when the world champs came out in their bid to reach 250. With the opening bowlers spraying the ball all over the place from the start, within a few minutes a sudden deathly hush descended over the ground. It was as if the crowd was sharing Dravid’s pessimism.

The Aussie bowlers on the contrary were in the face of the Indians from the very first ball. It is obvious by now that Glenn McGrath has got Sachin Tendulkar’s number.

Steve Waugh’s ‘mental disintegration’ ploy appears to be having a delayed effect on the Indians—it is wearing them down during the reign of not Waugh, but his successor Ricky Ponting!
