Fun on the Run – Breaking news III

Posted by Sathyamurthy www.sathyamurthy.com on December 20, 2008

Back to the wall situation for Rahul Dravid but he himself was The Wall and he had his back to that immense wall that he had built over 12 years when his form deserted him in the past one year or so.

Most cricket lovers in the country including yours truly cried for his head.

He walked out to bat under tremendous pressure and like his current form (prior to this test) the weather was gloomy (more suited for the English bowlers?) and there was added pressure of India having lost Sehwag the devastator when the Indian score was just 6.

And what an innings Dravid played. Full of application and determination. He just completed a hundred. I will rate this hundred of his as equal to his hundred made in the historic Kolkatta test against Australia since the pressure here was no less than the pressure that he faced while batting in that test, except that this was more personal. A veteran of 10K run having to prove to himself that he is still good and speak with his bat to his detractors.

From Back to the Wall situation, Dravid has now come back to the forefront with runs under his belt. For India, it is a happy return back to THE WALL. 🙂

Hats off Rahul Dravid.

Fun on the Run – Breaking news – II

Posted by Sathyamurthy www.sathyamurthy.com on December 19, 2008

I had a funny dig at Rahul Dravid after his failure in the Chennai Test and reading that Tarun commented in my post that Dravid’s failure was may be due to the fact that the Indian openers were off late rather consistent.

Being a pressure situation player, Dravid was not able to give his best when there was no real pressure when he stepped out to play. Good point Tarun. But we should not forget that India was under tremendous pressure when he stepped out to bat in some of the tests in Sri Lanka due to the Ajanta Mendis menace. Dravid wasn’t successful there either.

In any case, today the second test vs. England has started in Mohali and Rahul Dravid has gone out to bat at the time of me writing this post with India having lost Sehwag for naught.

Lets see if The Wall stands strong today.

A cricket fan’s letter to Rahul Dravid

Posted by Sathyamurthy www.sathyamurthy.com on December 19, 2008

Dear Dravid,

We very easily get the scores that you score from extras. We have no problem in going in with 10 players into a test match as thenwe will not have someone (a) waste deliveries (b) create pressure for other players (c) drop catches. Extras plays better than you in any given match.

We humbly request you to take a leaf out of Dada’s books and say Tata!

Best wishes for your retired life, do not make us tire any more.

A Cricket Fan
(aka Triplicani)
