Bengal tiger dethroned again…!

Dada in problem again. John Buchanan, the coach for Kolkata Knight Riders has dropped Sourav Ganguly as a fixed captain for IPL 2020. Buchanan who feels Ganguly does not fall in the T20 scheme of things and he doubt his fitness for T20 format games. He says several reasons for this decision and opting for unique concept – no fixed captain. Whatever may be the decision ..finally Ganguly is targeted and put in trouble.

No need to Prove again...!

No need to Prove again...!

No one knows what is exactly behind this decision. Hope dada has proved himself a good captain in the last years IPL and his batting strike rates are good. And moreover IPL is more into business and not into sports. The unique aim of the format is to getting revenue. The game plan and format were designed according that. It’s not country oriented…its totally into business. Sourav has proved himself by bring more revenues in the Sharukh khan owned KKR in 2008 IPL. Hope Buchanan tries to wear the mask of Greg chappel/kiran moore/vensargar. As a most successful, aggressive captain and player of world cricked, I don’t know what else he have to do to prove himself as a best captain/player. He is out of international cricket…but still he is targeted.

Anyways …despite of all the problems I/we wish to see some demolishing strikes from dada this season. And no need to prove himself again….we know you…!

The game was over …!

It’s all over for the Bengal tiger with the Indian Cricket team. Saurav Ganguly , the most aggressive and successful captain of Indian Cricket team, announced his retirement and his last day of cricket was today. The man who shown a different look to the Indian team in the overseas grounds. As he mentioned earlier, he left with a winning note.

As a great fan of Saurav , I always admire his aggression and the leadership quality in him. As one of the best left handed batsmen of Indian cricked team, he contrinuted much more than other players. He has numerous records both in batting and as a captain. It’s one of the sad day for kolkatta cricket lovers and for the fans of ganguly. And as sachin said , it’s not the day to worry about the retirement , its a day to appreiate the legendry crickter for his contributions made to cricket.

Every player will have a bad n good times in their career. As such ganguly faced lots of hurdles for the past three years. Despite of his best recovery in form and proven batting , he was not respected.Thanks for Srikanth for selecting him for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, and its good on ganguly to announce his retirement. Since he wanted to end his carieer in a positive note. Thanks for M.S.Dhoni for handed over the captancy to Ganguly for last few overs and made to him to leave as a captain.He deserves it.

Tiger’s Story in numbers

Apart from all the controversies on him, we Love Ganguly for what he is. BCCI, India/world cricket fans will remember his contributions to cricket. Hats Off Saurav n sorry for the things happened…! We miss you a lot !

Great Entertainer …IPL – T20

Atlast DLF-IPL T20 matches got over. IPL has finished up with a nail-bitting thriller final match . Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai super kings.

Hats off to the IPL committee and the organizers. Really a great job by them. They took almost all cricket fans with them for the past two months. Such an unexpected response from the peoples..it reached every corners of India. IPL acted as a hunter and discovered few young talents from state teams. A great commercial success.

I always looked IPL teams as a individuals team (private team) it was not owned by a state or represented by a state. Hope this should not bring some enmity between states. I was upset with the Knight riders team and Mumbai Indians team getting out of semi finals. Happy with Ganguly’s notable performance (not remarkable) as a captain and player. Love to see Viru in form. Felt pity on Dravid for his Test team squad in T20 matches. Wondered at Warne’s confidence and power of young team.

I don’t want to go too much into match statistics ..just stop over here. Anyways good to have some entertainers like this. Hope this summer was good to every one and bad to the Theaters and multiplex’s. And now the producers can release the movies as per schedule 🙂 . Hope all these matches will help out our young team to perform well in forth coming series.

Congrats Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super kings. Good luck Indian Team.
