Cricket, Issues in India, P U Krishnan

Glorious Uncertainties!

Cricket is said to be a game of uncertainties and this saying has come in handy for some of us to explain away the humiliating defeat suffered by India at the hands of the visiting English team in the 5-day matches. As far as matches played on home grounds are concerned, India used to have an edge over any team, but, on this occasion, we have to take shelter under the good old saying “The game of uncertainties”. And, close on the heels of this humilitating defeat, came our convincing victory against the same team in T-20 match… as if to prove this theory of glorious uncertainties.

Now, it is time for our players to look ahead, leaving all such theories behind and cling on to “Practice makes perfect”… The ODI matches are round the corner!

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.
