Book Review - Eden Gardens: Legends and Romance
Oct 20, 2014
Few experiences can match being in the stands at the Eden Gardens, Calcutta (now Kolkata) in the 1970s and 80s during a Test match where close to 100,000 fanatical spectators would practically raise the roof whenever an opponent's wicket fell or an Indian batsman reached landmark.
Shastri is the ideal man for the job
Oct 13, 2014
Shastri was no saint. But he was something more important - a professional who gave his best for the team. India missed out on a long-term 'Shastri Era' because of some weak men in the BCCI.
Anecdotes tell more about players than statistics
Oct 08, 2014
In the reserved seats at KSCA Stadium, anecdotes flow, history is recalled, often whimsy and quirkiness reign, competing fantasies are bandied about (as when picking all-time XIs). Players, past and present drop in to say hello, journalists clarify doubts.
Other countries should take a cue from Pakistan on chucking
Oct 01, 2014
Within hours of PCB taking the tough stand, former captain and off spinner Mohammed Hafeez, 33, with 36 Tests under his belt, was reported in the Champions League where he turns out for Lahore Lions. Could this be the beginning of the kind of introspection that might see one of cricketttÃ?s biggest problems solved?
How the Chepauk test was Tied
Sep 23, 2014
In the tied Test, Maninder had been given out leg before to the off spinner Greg Matthews by the Karnataka umpire Vikram Raju, a gentle soul with whom I had played club cricket in the 1980s.
Picking an all-time West Indies squad ahead of the team's 500th Test
Sep 15, 2014
As the once-great West Indies play their 500th Test match this week, no one who worshipped that team of incredible batsmen, fast bowlers and outstanding fielders needs any invitation to indulge in sport's greatest fantasy - the choosing of an all-time squad.
Srinivasan calls the shots - In or out of office
Sep 09, 2014
The BCCI has changed its rules before, and will doubtless do so again. And, as they say about winning cricket teams, the top job will go to the man who wants it most desperately.
England and India take turns to make other look brilliant
Sep 03, 2014
There are two ways of looking at India's performance in the one-day series. The more positive is that the team raised their game with determination and rare grit. The other is that Indiaaâ?s young players no longer consider Test match cricket important.
Why is Dhoni scared of change?
Aug 27, 2014
There seem to be no clear lines of authority. From Dhoni's statement, one presumes that Shastri is the overseer, Fletcher the boss - and Dhoni himself the super boss.
India's pathetic showing in England
Aug 19, 2014
There is nothing you cannot say about the 2014 disaster that was not said after the 2011 disaster. We blamed the openers then, the middle order, the lack of sting in the bowling, the poor preparation, the excessive focus on the IPL to the exclusion of most other things.
The odd series win at home does not compensate for the many losses abroad
Aug 11, 2014
Since July 2011, India have played 16 Tests abroad, and lost 12, all but one under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. This is a miserable record for Indiaaâ?s most successful captain.
