Sports 360 degree

     Sports 360 degree is the phrase that should be used to describe the current trend in India.  All the focus has now shifted to sports and it looks a little tiring now with too many events stacked up.
It all started with the IPL in the year 2008 which was a grand success and it has reached season 7 this year.  Following the success of IPL similar kind of tournament has started to take centre stage as the Pro Kabbadi league was also a great success with a great fan following. Now it time for Football as the first edition of Indian Super league is reaching great heights and by the end of the season, we might see a Tennis competition.

     Its good for sports but it tests the fatigue level of the spectators.  Lets hope that the section of crowd stick to their favourite game and encourage budding sportsmen in India.

Another version of MSD

     This WT20 saw another version of MSD. World saw MSD as a hard hitting batsmen, quick handed Wicket Keeper and Captain cool. Now the time to see MSD the human being.

      This incident happened when India were at a training session before the final when there was a Pakistani Cricket fan from Chicago who's wife is from Inida, his name is Mohammed Bashir. MSD spotted him as he saw this person before the Champions trophy match between India and Pakistan. Bashir told MSD that he didnt get ticket for the final even after flying from Chicago to Bangladesh. MSD arranged for a pass for this fan and also offered him fruits as Bashir was standing there for quite sometime.

      Bashir gave an interview before Indo-Pak match stating that he was there to support is motherland Pakistan and also his wife's motherland India. After meeting MSD he said that he is a Pakistan fan and for the day he became a fan of MSD. At least one cricketer from a generation from India shows that humbleness is the way that leads them forward.

World T20 2014 - A different Story altogether

Its known that the World T20 is being played at Bangladesh in the Indian sub-continent. This is the 5th edition of the tournament. The previous ones were won by India (2007 South Africa), Pakistan(2009 England), England(2010 West Indies), West Indies(2012 Sri Lanka). In each of the previous editions, the batsman dominated the tournament with some big scores and the bowling just did a support role. This year at the WT20 2014, the Spinners are having a huge role. They are simply dictating terms and making life tough for the batsmen. Biggest talk inside the cricketing fraternity is that the players from the sub-continent are not good players of fast bowling on bouncy tracks. In this tournament their noses have been broken as these fast track players are proven to be kids in facing decent(If not quality) spin. This is a big boost for the format as it was said to be a batsmen oriented format and the bowlers are just to make numbers in the team. In this world T20 its "A different Story altogether" Business end of the tournament is on. Semifinal 1 Srilanka Vs West Indies Semifinal 2 India Vs South Africa Cheers!!!!!
