Bowling in Cricket and Politics : Siddle unsettles Indian batboys
has made a superb return to cricket, shedding its dependency on batboys for
their survival and gradually occupying the center state age it should have. India
had no answer to Australian attack both with ball and bat. The Aussies bowling
has become really marvelous.
the highest wicket taker in the series shared by all bowlers, but Siddle
really shook and crushed the partnerships by his thorough line attacks.
Indian batboys were nervous with a ball in Siddle's hand.
biggie Indians were blown away by Aussies bowlers in just one blazing session
on day 1. Australia thrashed India yet again in Perth securing the series win
3-0 and it is certain they would clinch the series 4-0 now easily in
Adelaide. This has been a thoroughly dominant performance by the hosts and the
Aussies are elated and rightly so looking for the final test in Adelaide.
routed India by an innings and 37 runs inside three days on 15 Jan to seal another
most crushing 3-0 series victory against the hapless tourists. It was the
second Test in a row the tourists had been beaten without Australia needing to
bat twice. It is suggested that Warner's knock had already taken the game
away from the Indian side.
always seeks 100 plus for its batboys and fixes matches accordingly by letting
other teams also enjoys some "records" as per the unwritten but
accepted "norms" of exchange program. They have made
bowlers ineffective. .
captain Clarke justifies the test cricket format because they could finish it in
just 2 days and a couple of hours. Clarke who enjoyed 300 plus in the previous
test at Sydney has been, like Ponting and Hussey, made to toil without any runs
in Perth. Clarke praised batboys. “Great performance from Warner and
Cowan in pretty tough conditions” For him, the bowlers are only secondary and
they in Perth “continue to exhibit their skills”. There has been enough for the
bowlers in all the wickets. He stands exposed with his double-talks on
pitch: “The Perth track has made the batsmen work hard for runs” but how
Warner could blast 180 by huge 6s and big 4s? Will he answer?
Even with less powerful bowling unit, South Africans
did worse for Srilankan team than Australians did to poor hapless but highly
boastful Indians. As South Africa bowlers
hit very extra hard of a clear length and made the test extra tough for Sri
Lankans, the Lankan batboys just collapsed. Notwithstanding their own bowling prowess, Sri Lanka folded for their lowest score in
ODI history. Peterson ends the fun with an arm ball.
After offering 300 plus urns to the hosts - where Amla,
Kallis and Malinga starred - the Colombo boys thought their batboys would be
able to win as they thought their batboys would hit back with 4s and 6s and the
team had the chance of chasing down the target. But the South African bowlers and fielders did
a dramatic effort to throw the SL batboys very early with just 40 plus runs.
This is Sri Lanka's heaviest defeat in terms of runs.
This is the 4th lowest score in ODI history. A tame surrender by the Sri Lankans and South
Africa went 1-0 up with a whopping 258 run victory, to be followed by more wins
subsequently. A lot of credit to South Africa's pacers! What a humiliating surrender it turned out to
be! SL skipper Dilshan admitted that the key point was the
first 5 overs as the SA bowled really good lines and it was very difficult to
SA captain AB de Villiers
said that it was a collective work and thorough team performance.
Luck also played its part.
Many Indian cricket strategists who do not want to replace
S. Tendulakar, considered a major Hindu god by the parliamentarians , among
others, and want him to play until his
son is ready to replace him , view the Indian defeat better than the Lankan.
the silver lining has been the performance of bowlers and fielders, although
much more needs to be achieved by them to make cricket a real completion
or entertainment, even if not as a sport.
none has guts in India to speak up to wind up S. Tendulakar who has been kept
by all concerned at the crease for years now, blocking the entry of new
cricketers. None in India condemns the illegal occupation of Jammu Kashmir,
massacres of Kashmir Muslims and persistent state silence over the rebuilding of
Babri Mosque. Indian state has pledged before the nations and world to rebuild
the Babri Mosque at the very site where it stood as an Islamic cultural heritage.
Indian Hindu fanaticism must end.
is the collective crime of India.
must consider revising its fanatic policies both in JK and cricket and quickly
rebuild the Babri mosque, destroyed by the Hindu terrorist with state protection.
terrorism and cricketism must not go hand in hand.
