It's in our hands now : We must choose - Country's Pride or Country's Gamble Cricket?

Suresh Kalmadi, Chairman of the Organising Committee of XIX Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010, has written a letter to MS Gill, Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India, to reschedule the India-Australia Cricket Series that coincides with the Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010. Two test matches of that series coincides with Commonwealth Games. One from October 2 – 6  and the other from October 10 -14, 2010. In addition, the Australian Team will play three ODI’ s and three practice matches as part of this series. Indian people never consider any sports other than Cricket. Many of us are mad over cricket. So, if a cricket series is played at the same time as Commonwealth Games, it will reduce the viewship and interest of the people towards CWG. This could be harmfully dangerous to our nation’s grand event.

Suresh Kalmadi had requested Sharad Pawar and BCCI, not to schedule any major cricket events at the time of CWG. But, as usual, cricket stupids had ignored them. So, Suresh Kalmadi has written a letter to MS Gill to intervene in this matter and convince the Gamble Board (Board of Control for Cricket in India) to reschedule the cricket series.

Most Indians are mad about Cricket. But, Cricket is lazy man’s game. If you want to honour the real sporting spirit, then support Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010.

So, “Come out from Gamble and play”

Good news to spirited sporting fans all-over the country!

The Indian Hope

Saina Nehwal, World No. 3 Badminton Player,already the first Indian Badminton player to win Super Series Badminton Title, also the first to clinch the Singapore Open Super Series title last week, clinches her third Super Series Badminton title today. She is really a 20 year old marvel from Hyderabad. She successfully defended her Indonesian Open Championship. In the final, she defeated Japan’s Sayaka Sato 21-19, 13-21, 21-11.

It’s an hatrick for Saina who the Indian Open Grand Prix and the Singapore Open Super Series in the last 2 weeks. I am upset when she lost in the quaterfinals of the Beijing 2008 Olympics. But, she improved here form very much. So, I am confidently saying that gold in Commonwealth, Asian, Olympic etc., Badminton events will be ours!

When they will come out?
