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

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

Carbo-loading: Myth or Reality?

I’ve been around athletes for a while. I even work with one at the same company. And before any competition, this coworker of mine ingested large amounts of carbohydrates. I asked him why and he explained, when taking part in endurance competitions, athletes need to maximize the storage of glycogen in their muscles. When they put their body to work for over 90 minutes, they need all the energy they can get. So athletes consume large amounts of carbs to make sure they don’t run out of fuel. Sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? In fact, it’s not that simple. read more
