The Sangakkara way

It was outside the off and he recognized it was in the driving area, what followed next was something like this. Led by front shoulder into the shot he took a full stride towards the pitch of the ball, bent down a little to adjust his body weight to transfer it into the front foot, his bat came down from slip keeping it as close to his pad as possible, he kept his elbow high and bat straight (The makers were proud of the complete visibility of their logo), he lent forward a little more (in perfectly rehearsed manner), the bat seemed like just kissing the ball, which to play its part in the whole act raced away all along the carpet to the boundary. The follow through was majestic (and natural). Over his 15 years international career where Sangakkara has struck 3001 boundaries many have followed the above routine. He was unique, not because the way he batted, not because the way he kept wicket, not because the way he handled his troops when in command, but because of the fact that all this traits came in a package. An excellent wicket keeper who was the mainstay of his team’s batting for over one and half decades, and one of the most important brains behind the success of his nation in international cricket post Arjuna Ranatunga era. And yes there were occasional cover drives which mesmerized the age-old purists and the modern day T20 loving youth alike.Sri-Lankan-cricketer-Kumar-Sangakkara-leaves-the-field-after-being-dismissed-at-221-runs-during-the-fourth-day-of-the-opening-Test-match-between-Sri-Lanka-and-Pakistan2 read more

Who the Greatest Footballer Ever: Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo

Before giving my opinion on who is the greatest ever, let us look at the analysis made by the new football experts, who have come out in force in the last few years. These are the people who make internet memes and trolls. The understanding they have of football is immense. According to them, out of Messi and Ronaldo, one is greatest because he pays taxes and the other doesn’t. One is greatest because he is married to his childhood sweetheart and other acts as a playboy. I can go on but I would like to tell these experts to go and play FIFA (the game) because their opinion is nonsense. But you will still find people believing them. read more

Bleaguered England Cricket aim to get back to past glories

The English cricket team has endured a tumultuous few months. Ever since Mitchell Johnson steamed in at the Gabba and destroyed the English top order in that fateful morning in the first Ashes test, something hasn’t been quite right with them. Just wColin Graveshen it looked like the scars of the Ashes had healed with a thumping victory over India at home, a disastrous world cup showed English cricket in grim light again. The change at the helm of the ECB hasn’t helped either. The incoming chairman Colin Graves has openly contradicted the previous stance that Kevin Pietersen would not be considered for selection. This has led to Pietersen cancelling his IPL contract and rejoin Surrey in a bid to regain his place in the English team. Quite what will happen if Pietersen’s batting starts demanding selection, only time will tell. The undoubted friction that comes with him returning to a side captained by Alastair Cook won’t help matters either. It is believed that Cook played a key part in Pietersen’s sacking after the Ashes. The problem arises due to the fact that Cook has not been among the runs for over a year now and fans are clamouring for the inclusion of Pietersen even if it meant Cook being out of the side. It is quite a pity that it has come to this, as both batsmen sit atop the list of highest ever run scorers for England in tests. read more

Rafael Nadal form slump: The mojo of the King of Clay

It is that time of the year again. The pulses start racing for football fans as the Barclays Premier League draws to a close, cricket lovers sit back to enjoy the start of the county season and tennis fans witness Rafael Nadal’s latest exploits in clay….only that the latter may just produce a few jolts this time around. Yes, for the first time in about a decade, Rafael Nadal will not start as the bookies favourite to win at the clay court masters series and in the second grand slam of the year – French Open. The certainty of Nadal winning in his fortress of Roland Garros has been up there alongside universal facts like the sun rising in the east. However, if Roland Garros was Gotham, a threat has been sent to Nadal on the back of a calling card of a Djoker. read more

The weekend in the Barclays Premier League

The Influence of Music on International Sports

How does it feel when a man plays the same music over and over again, if they get a good hit or a shot and they supervise on playing it for the rest of their lives just because it works for them and the opposite happens if it doesn’t work out at all. A sport is absolutely necessary for every human being to stay fit but in today’s scenario everything has become so commercial that people have actually forgotten the ethics and basic spirit of any sport thereby scaring and killing the strength behind it. read more
