Half empty or half full?
By sundararajan on Mar 24, 2007
As expected (especially after loosing to Bangladesh), loosing to Sri Lanka followed! Here is my "half full" perspective:
- Cola companies would probably rethink about their strategy - ads. showing cricketers morphing to tigers?. Good joke!
- Cricket (for that matter most sports) is for youngsters. If a team member is 30+, he should probably retire - unless if he is a super performer today! - past glory (?) is immaterial. I hope there will be some pressure at home.
- TV channels would probably show other interesting things. Cricket "experts" everywhere... pre/post-match analysis... voting on everything by SMS... come on, cricket is not the only thing in the world. Viewers deserve better than that. I hope channels will get the message soon [and switch to focus on celebrity marriage/divorce instead ? ]
- Last but not the least: due to timezone difference, I had to be awake from 7.00 PM to 3.00 AM to watch matches. Now, I can have sound sleep in the coming days (may be just watch the highlights of good games like SA vs Aussies).
