Our Thala is Back!!!


Dhoni is back!!

Yes, our Thala Dhoni is back to CSK!!! Let’s put a whistle to Chennai Super Kings & MSD!!

We are World Champions


Cricket is something which unites us irrespective of caste, color, creed, religion or language… This is one game we take it soo serious that we make our players Villan’s when they loose and break their house… And we make them real super heros when they win… Today we had a bunch of Super heros led by my Thala(Leader in tamil) Dhoni… What to say I really have no words about this victory… Some synopsys of this world cup;

  • Booked room at Green Park hotel for England match and the match ended in draw.
  • We to a pub in green park for South Africa match and we lost it.
  • Then decided not to venture out and tried watching the match from home & I didn’t take bath for the match with Australia & we won it…
  • Followed same sentiment and i dint take bath, wore the same costumes I did for previous match & this time it was against Pakistan… I was restless the whole day… All I wanted was to win against Pakistan and even if we had lost the cup I’d have forgiven our heros… Hooray we won against pakistan too…
  • Then it was finals yesterday & same sentiment continued & we won it against Sri Lanka too…

Immediately after the victory I wanted to celebrate it with bunch of my city folks and immediately caucht up couple of folks in a pub & went to Bessie (Besant Nagar Beath…

Bhoy it was absolute party all over the roads… I was very emotional and so as others… Now this will last for a week atleast & this is one of the special day in my life… Here are some snaps I took & in next blog I’ll share the videos taken…

Never mind Mahe!!!


I think it is high time for Indian fans to get mature when it comes to their expectation on Cricket. Personally I’m a great cricket fan and I can’t tolerate India loosing. But we have to understand how we loose. For sure the current team is the best even team India has produced in last 60 years and it has got lot of laurels.

But yesterday I got frustrated to watch a Tamil news channel telling Dhoni would be removed from Captaincy for Team India’s exit from T20 world cup.

Also I think Media is going over board in doing their postmortem. All I can say is Dhoni has proved his mantle as a captain on more than one occasion and this one defeat should not question his capabilities as a leader.

We must acknowledge that T20 is a game of luck. In this format of game any one player’s overwhelming performance can turn any match. This is evident from Team’s like Ireland & Netherlands winning prominent teams which would have been a challenge for them in One day format.

T20 doesn’t allows any martin for error compared with one day format where in you can make up for your mistake. This short version of game is highly speculative and more of a gamble.

We must also blame our Media for this defeat because from the beginning of the game they created lot of unnecessary issues like Shewag incident, IPL fatigue etc. Their interference on player’s privacy and team’s privacy has gone beyond limit. All we have to do is to control our media from doing nonsense job of criticizing.

I’m sure Dhoni & Co will bounce back strong with their capabilities. Good luck Team India for future endowers.

IPL 2009 To-do


IPL starts from 18th and more importantly it starts with Chennai Super Kings & Mumbai Indians… Last year I didn’t show much interest in the beginning but over days the tournament pulled me and also had opportunities to watch matches because of my friend Prasad’s influence with India Cements… This time I miss the tournament in India coz I can’t watch matches from the Stadium… Anyways let me do put a to-do list and make my schedule such that it doesn’t affect my work and watching matches…

 

  • Download Matches Schedule and Place it in Desktop & stick a printout of schedule in my table…
  • Subscribe for Sony Max in Sun Direct DTH… This is first priority and this must be done tomorrow itself…
  • Buy Chennai Super Kings T-shirt from Reebok…
  • Block Rs.10,000/- for betting with friends particularly with my twitter mate Sameer…
  • Change my caller tunes to Chennai Super Kings song…
  • If possible perform a special puja for Chennai Super Kings to win the cup this time…
  • Form a group in Madurai to watch matches… In Chennai there is no need as there are lots of group which I must choose and join…

Also last time we went with my MBA group for matches… This time there is a get-together on April 27, 2009 before the graduation day… So, I might not miss my MBA group this time…
