This blog ain't dead
I been working so hard that I am actually feeling that I earn my salary. It isn't a nice feeling, really.
Anyway cheers guys ... the only positive thing I can say is that this series against Pak has been sooooooo boring that this is as good a time as any to be busy on non-cricketing fronts.
Just a thought here on Dravid opening .... capability wise, he was always capable even when he opened a couple of times under Ganguly's captaincy. It was just his mindset which let him down ... I remember his opening in South Africa and I had commented then "he came in looking like he was gonna be shot at dawn the next day". This time around the mindset seems to be different in the sense he has tuned himself mentally to the idea that for the good (read - balance) of the team, he has to lead from the front and take on the job himself. Which leads me to ask - is it bad to wonder why he didn't feel the necessity to do the same under Ganguly's captaincy? I have frequently talked about Ganguly's hypocricy when it comes to his bowling ... as a captain he never felt the need to work himself up over his bowling though it would have been helpful at times ... now every match he plays (domestic) he bowls a lot and "shows" everyone how useful his bowling is. Nonsense!!!
Anyways, back to the grind ... I cannot promise when my next post would be but can only say - This blog ain't dead.
