" its different ball game now "

Cricket fever is raging across the country... World Cup action is set to begin on Saturday, and for the next  45 days or so, people will just forget about any thing , they will simply Eat cricket...Drink Cricket and Sleep Cricket (thanx to Commerce part of the game)....

There was a time when only five days matches used to be played....
Players used to behave like  gentlemen....
Ballers used to just walk a little and throw the ball to batsmen, without any rush of blood...
And appealing to tha umpire was so polite like telling...." i beg, out de do Sir ji...."
Even the spectators used to take a nap in between the overs...
So, over all it was a Gentlemen game......


But things have changed now... 
Like our life style, there is too much aggressiveness involved in the game of cricket now....
Cricket is no more a gentlemen game now.....
"Ab Baller, Batsman ko is tarah ghoortaa hai jaise Chabaa jaayega"


Even the spectators can't get a nap in between, and if they do so...they are certainly going to miss the Cheer Girls....;)

  6. Ya test cricket is loosing popularity now..so is one day cricket..all the focus is now on fatafat cricket..as far as aggression goes..it is more evident now a days because of hight quality cameras and microphones which get every detail on the field. And of course "Jo dikta hai, Wahi Bikta hai" mere dost..

  17. Oh, Even i was a great fan of cricket during my school days when 5 day match was the norm. I especially liked the last 20 mandatory overs which was total fun.

    Now, I HATE cricket.

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Asha: even i don't like to see much of it now... bcoz after all celebrations or otherwise when u come to know that it was fixed ball to ball, then feel cheated....

    even then heart beats for India.... :)

  21. I remember my school-days when we used to listen commentary on Radio as it was the only mode available with us to keep updated with latest score. Mob of cricket-fans could be seen hovering around Tea-stalls, Pan-stalls whole day only to know the latest score !

    My classmates even carried small transistor into the classroom in school-bag to enable us listen commentary. Such was the craze during those days which cannot be explained in few lines.

    Now everything has become Nano, five day Test Match reduced to one day………

  22. probably this is where cricket has won, see no matter what, it makes even people write about it! And the fever is everywhere , and most of the blogs have something or the other on them.

  27. what sir ji... still thinking about those black n white movies, every thing is colorful n vibrant these days and so is cricket.
    Life is very fast now who knows after few years only toss will be done to declare the winner...ha haaa.

  28. its not only test matches but 50 overs one day game is also on the back foot bcoz of 20-20 cricket.
    its our life style, we want every thing instantaneous. who can sit for 5 days in a row to see 11 people running behind a ball and chances are more there will be a draw.

  29. @sunidhi: you no one thing, people like me who neither belong to B&W era and nor to the present colorful one are really in problem...don't know which way to go???? hehehehe

    result from a toss... who knows that too all concerned captains n officials will be interconnected through webcams...hahaaaaaa
