# Sandpaper Gate!

It’s been a sad day for all the ardent cricket lovers ! After the end of the 3 rd day of the 3 rd test match at Capetown , Captain Steve Smith and Cameron Bankroft admitted that they had tampered with the ball . Smith confessed that the leadership group had a plan in place and that they were caught red handed.

The first thing to understand about the whole incident is that tampering of the ball is a relatively minor part of it . It has been happening for years . Captains have done it , players have done it , fielders have done it ! And that is why it’s not such a major crime in the gallery of crimes . Fixing a match is much bigger that that . The reason that the entire incident became so big was that a leader of a very proud cricketing nation went and told the media that they had actually planned it !!

There is an enormous feeling of being let down among the Australian Community. It’s actually believed that the Captain of the Australian Cricket team is the most important person in Australia. They like their players to use their language, to play some harsh, aggressive sport. If you go to Australia they won’t ask you what are your qualifications.Instead they will ask you which sport do you play. That’s the amount of pride they take in sports. And then the Captain to come and say that ,’ You know what, we cheated! ‘ is shattering!

Smith was supposed to be the greatest test batsman only after Bradman.It was recently that he was awarded ‘ The Australian of the year’ ! The Australian Captain is actually a big part of the Australian culture.

It’s an unbelievable error of judgement. To actually believe that they could get away with it .How on earth did they believe that they would get away with it ? They come from a land which has the best coverage in the world . That was the most stupid and naive part in behalf of them.

However inspite of it,I do believe that Cricket Australia’s punishment for the 3 players is a bit too harsh !

The way he was treated at the South African airport was absolutely unfair. He is an international cricketer not a murderer or a drug mule . To be bullied and mobbed by the African police was absolutely unacceptable. Smith looked beyond remorseful in the press conference. To see him confronted by his father was absolutely heart- wrenching. Hope he and his family gather courage during this tough time. Hope he comes back stronger than before!

A bad mistake should not define the caterer of a player as great as Smith. It’s time for us to give them some space . A ban for a year for ball tampering is no less than joking.

Winning is important, but winning in the right way is more important. Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching. Cricket is a gentleman’s game and it should be played with all the true spirit of sportsmanship.

The ball – tampering incident is an eye-opener for all the cricketers . However, I hope that Cricket Australia reduces it’s ban on Steve , Warner and Bancroft for the future of Australian Cricket !

The winning streak continues…..!

There is no stopping team India.They started the one and only t20 in the same form in which they left the ODI and test series.They defeated Sri Lanka by 7 wickets leaving the hosts and their fans crestfallen.

After hitting back -to -back centuries in ODI Virat Kohli continued his sublime form by hitting a yet another blazing half century.Also he became the first Indian captain to clean sweep a whole foreign tour.He also became the only Indian captain to score in all formats of the game.The chase master added another feather to his cap by winning the most man of the series award in t20 cricket surpassing Shahid Afridi’s record.

Chasing 171 , India rode on a 119 run partnership for the second wicket between Kohli(82) and Manush Pandey(52*) to achieve this target with four balls to spare.Legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal also played his role by claiming three wickets.

Grinning Kohli in the post -match conference said,“Very special (whitewash across all formats) hasn’t been done before.Credit to all the hard work that the boys have put in over the past couple of months in all formats of the game”.

“That’s evidence of the fact how hungry the players are in Indian cricket.The bench strength is coming out beautifully..results are amazing to see as a captain”,he added.But more than the trophies that the team India will take back home ,Kohli will cherish the new found confidence that should help team India scale new heights in the coming days.

Stardom vs script-The story of 2017 so far

As 8 months of 2017 are already over we find that the Bollywood industry’s so called superstars have not had a dream run this year.This year has seen the most perplexing and atypical for our Bollywood biggies.Movies released this year proved that big names and action-packed masala dialogues do not guarantee success at the box office.While the industry is studded with superstars ,the box office is not.It is because of our poor script because of which we are lacking behind when it comes to comparison with Hollywood.

So the question is why is this so?Are the failures of big budget movies at the box office an indication to the makers that the audience now demands story over stardom?Its not that movies with big names are failing because the audience does not want to watch movies anymore.Its just that now the Indian audience has become more aware and is now demanding quality writing.

The failure of movies like ‘TUBELIGHT’ and ‘JAB HARRY MET SEJAL’ with promising and evergreen superstars like Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan is proving this true.On the other hand movies like ‘Lipstick under my burkha’,‘Bareilly ki barfi’,‘Shubh Mangal savdhan’, ‘Hindi Medium’ , are having a dream run at the box office.With absolutely not-so sought after and unconventional actors these films have managed to survive at the box office on the mere basis of their relevant and well -built story.

While many superstars have failed at the box-office there is one exception who surely stands out when it comes to the collection at box office -our very own “Khiladi Kumar”(Akshay Kumar).He has proved that even with a low-budget and not -so glamorous heroines a movie can fare well at the box office.His movies have set to be significant and mind-blowing.His movies have set to be an eye-opener and have raised the issue of our social problems with a strong and a meaningful message.He surely is the Mr.Consistent of Bollywood.

It is high time now that our Bollywood biggies idolise our unconventional actors and stress on the importance of a good script that connects the audience throughout.It is only a good script that will help the audience remain hooked to cinema!!Khushi
