Man Vs Machine !!!

Fans wave the Indian flag during a match again...



When cricket started,there were no provisions for third empire and other electronic gadgets for calculating speed,direction or any other facility was provided.But still Cricket went all through decades to make people cricket maniac.In India cricket became far more than just a game…it beacme a religion.Everyone sat together,with no discrimination and cheered for Men In Blue.With the advancement of technology,TV empires came up,many electronic devices came up to reduce basically the human error of judging the batsman out or not.So as to decrease the cases of partiality or any other discrimination.
But ,unfortunately with the advancement the human errors also increased,atleast for the Indian Side though.Men In Blue became prey to many Australian umpires and were started to rely totally on machine rather than the well-trained humans…Initially,wrong decisions were taken as a part of the game.But as the frequency increased,the anger,frustration too started to swirl in the minds of Indian fans as well as in Men In Blue. Repeated avoidable mistakes lead to thought of discrimination and hate.

Recently MS Dhoni was caught in the trap which resulted in apologising of ICC to Indian Cricket Team.
Till the end,the questioned remain the same “should we replace human decisions by that of machines every time or not ?”


India Vs West Indies !!

Ishant Sharma at Adelaide Oval



India vs West Indies test series is among the most thrilling series I hace watched in my life.I just switched on my television and was shocked to find that Indian batting order was struggling again !! They were playing at 44 with 4 wickets back in pavalion with Rahul Dravid among them.Only VVS Laxman,Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh were left to stand up a good score.VVS Laxman proved his experience and played with hard bat to score outstanding 85 and reaching aggregate of 8000 runs,after Sachin,Rahul and Sunil Gavaskar. He played like a matured batsman,hitting fours with so much ease that gave confidence to Suresh Raina,a young talented and ya ofcourse Poster Boy of Indian cricket team to help India reach a somehow good total of 201.VVS Laxman is now counted among very few batsmen in the world that can sting with the tail.He played marvelous innings with tail-enders,helping them to gain confidence and score for the country.This match ,I am sure would be stored among his classics.

In return after this shocking start from India,I expected the same situation for West Indies also (as happened in last test match which gave me  confidence to think beyond possibilities). Same thing happened with West Indies,as they were thrashed by furious bowling by Ishant sharma and Praveen Kumar.They bowled so beautifuly that created havoc in West Indies pavilion.West Indies batting order collapsed like cards and were helpless and ya,choked to fight against cruel Indian Bowlers.

At last,India was back in the match…with Indies losing their 5 wickets with 60 runs on board…and Men In Blue gave another hope of winning…

Wow…What a match!! A perfect nail-biting match between India and New Zealand played at Guwahati. Indians not only thrashed Kiwis by 40 runs but hinted their motive for upcoming World Cup Series. Indian squad headed by Gautam Gambhir played an outrageous innings and defeated Kiwis with a huge difference. India started with Murli Vijay and Gautam Gambhir and proved to be a crucial partnership. Virat Kohli took the command and scored a brilliant knock of 105 of 104 balls and hence giving India a starting edge over New Zealand. Indian batsmen did their task by providing a good target of 276 for New Zealand. Indian bowlers too did a good task and hence not disappointing the fans by bowling out Kiwi’s at the score of 236. From New Zealand squad ,it was only Ross Taylor who scored a crucial 66 and proved to be a wall between India and victory for a good time.
