Recurring Decimals…..

Everything here is irrelevant

Jeers and cheers…

Having won the test series and considering the recent dismal ODI record of the Indian team, I have not been watching the current, massive 7-match one-day series with England with much interest. Still, when the team allows the Poms, England for christsake, to creep back to a win from 99 runs to go with only 3 wickets in hand, you have to wonder what abysmal depths this Indian team has dropped to. This is not Australia or South Africa, its a team that by its own admission plays ODIs reluctantly. And we let them have a 3-1 series lead.

Of course, it does not help when we are handicapped by having only 6-7 fielders while bowling.

Meanwhile, congrats to the other, less celebrated Indian team, for a whiff of good news in a long, long time. I am talking about the football team that won the Nehru Cup. I am not sure if the opponents had brought along their full teams or not, but still, this is possibly the best news coming from Indian soccer since the ’86 Merdeka Cup.
