Cricketers Dilemma – Resolve and Doggedness Part-2
“World Cup T20 every match’s outcome is full of miracles;
and fortunate Indians are part of every such sensation”
I extend my and my families heartiest congratulations to both Indian and Pakistan cricket teams who, despite being seen as out of race, have made miraculous return to prove their mettles. Though, Indian and Asian fans have not pardoned both nations’ Cricket Teams (ICT) for their betrayal in the World Cup, but the same fans have now embedded their teams like diamond in their crown.
Is entry of India and Pakistan in the finals of T20 World Cup (T2WC) miracle or efforts?
I meekly say YES and loudly scream big NO. The initial attempt of Pakistan in bowling out New Zealand to make first forceful ticket to final is a perfect match of consistency and dedication but Indian cricketer’s victory over World Champion Australia on 22 September 2007 at Durban was miraculous. How every bowl made a difference for Indian team steps which were inching towards T2WC final? The one over of Sehwag made every Indian fan quaver but ultimately it was his dedicated start that made the entire difference in the last over.
I would congratulate Indians for:-
· Bowling consistency of aiming over mid wicket which en-cashed every batsman’s miss to kiss his stumps;
· Sreesanth’s good line and length has outshined his over fifteen wide bowls against South Africa;
· Team Captain Dhoni’s reposed faith in Joginder Sharma at the end; and
· Fine knock of 70 runs of Yuvi at most crucial time.
My readers would appreciate that failure of world champion Australia to qualify
into final was as miraculous as Indian teams victory. At one point of time, when Hyden sent a loose delivery over fence, it was felt that Australia would qualify. Why Australia has lost is also attributed towards team efforts of Indians? Australia, despite having run rate over 7.75 per over was always seen vacillating at field. What I feel that; had India would have not missed three chances of run out and dropped two invaluable catches; the entire Aussie’s team could have been bundled out much early.
Smith’s admittance of losing a match sealed South Africa’s probabilities of entry into semi finals were enthralled with deep pain and remorse. Despite winning the match, I would like to bring out a few glaring slipups of Indian players.
One; bad fielding;
Two; dropping of catches at regular intervals;
Three; players were moving with the move batsman rather of baller’s;
Four; bad line and length of bowlers except Rudhra;
Five; lack of will to play whole heartedly; and
Six; poor field layout gave a few boundaries which could have been stopped.
Asian fans though, with the exit of both New Zealand and Australia, are jubilant, but the baiting market world has tripled up their sale. No one can predict the amount of baiting money, which exchanges hands in India- Pakistan final? Guess, it may be over a million or trillion of rupees over night. Every ball bowled after 10th over shuffles Crores of rupees here and there. The baiting market’s role in fixing and predicting the outcome of every match is so unfathomable that even baiter some times doubt about their money muscles. The big fishes silently operating from safe heavens have large stakes. The T2WC final on 24 September 2007 would have shaken the baiting world. An unpredictable outcome of both sides reveals something fishy. I hope it is not the large underhand transactions of the field which has changed the course of final as destiny or struggle back to victory.
If India has to win and anyone of them can read my article, the Indian players must:
1. move with the baller rather than after batsman stroked the ball;
2. remain active and warm up rather standing lazily with coiled hands;
3. not to drop any catch;
4. en-cash every opportunity of run out; and it can only be achieved when Indian players have practiced enough to hit stumps directly from any where inner circle and on to stump in the hands of baler or keeper from anywhere in the field;
5. try to prevent every boundary fired;
6. always layout field on my Stand Line Behind (SBL) technique to stop over throw and miss field fast deliveries;
A few tips for the ballers that would matter every delivery they release. As T2WC is
the Game of Strokes (GOS), I believe that my tips are hidden inside the Rudhras balling spree against South Africa on 20 September 2007 and Sreesanth’s against Aussies on 22 September 2007. I work out my match outcome on my famous formula of NANAS Tips;
Never throw full throw, short delivery unless aimed bouncer
Avoid leg wicket deliveries, thus, avoiding wide and extras
No balling when angry other wise all deliveries would meet Yuvi’s deliveries fate against England and Broad against India;
Aim Always Mid Wicket
Shoot direct deliveries at chosen point between batsman and good length; and
Ultimately the stroke of destiny coupled with opponents hiccough had made our team achieve unbeatable. I hope if any cricketer who follows the guide to NANAS, he would make his team proud. With best wishes to both India for V and Pakistan L. Readers comments are solicited at [email protected], [email protected]
