The celebrated Indian batsman and former captain Gundappa Vishwanath in a solitary off-cricket test match did something quite impeccable yet deviant. Following the dismissal of England’s wicket keeper Bob Taylor, he rushed to the umpire and had Taylor call him back to the crease, as he believed he had not taken the catch neatly. Decades later the illustrious batsman said in an interview, “Do you know I am still jeered for that?” referring to that decision of recalling Taylor.

Football is the most popular sport in the European continent and parts of America, oh scratch that, football is the most popular sport in the world, no wait it is a religion.
Its origin dates back to Han dynasty in 3rd century BC where leather balls were filled with feathers and kicked around. In Greece, a sport called “Episkyros” was played in which there were no rules as such besides the rule of kicking the ball into a net (they took the saying that there is just one rule very seriously.) The game had no particular size of field or number of players at that time so yeah there have been times when team had entire clans as their on field squad, wasn’t very different from war in those times.

Most of us probably won’t remember him because it is hard to remember something which never caught your eyes or fascinated you while it had last but for many of us who had seen him almost throughout his career and even at his prime would wonder how it lasted that long. To his merit Shivnarine Chanderpaul struggled but he survived.

Before I start, let me clarify that I am considering the world cups which I have watched. I rather not comment about the ones before 2002, because I haven’t seen them live, so to not upset the pompous, bombastic and loud mouthed so-called football puritans and elitists.

Celebrating small wins with the entire team is acceptable. But not at the cost of the game itself, isn’t it? Certain times, players lose control over their emotions and tend to celebrate their wins even before the declaration. And the probability that the opposition team takes the win in this period is more likely.

Have you ever thought why do some people achieve something which is beyond human limits? Sheer will power might be one answer, but when you have “Horsepower” you are a legend!
Sports and other fitness activities is a valuable asset, if practiced in a routine, for excess of everything is bad. All the sports-persons desire to do something extraordinary and make their name in the game. What pushes them across limits is their nutrition!

England’s team of 2015 marched on, picking up another 3 points with almost effortless ease, as goals from Hector Bellerin, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud sealed a comfortable victory for the Gunners, who have now picked up 30 points from 36 this calendar year.
