As expected, the media is heavily agog with criticism of Indian cricket team. But how much of it is fair?
The other day, star news aired a program titled something like "Sharm ho.." Some of the comments like the above are highly objectionable.
No doubt, the team has havily under-performed, decisions on the field backfired, and lots of mistakes happened. But its too foolish of these so called pillars of democracy to show them as some kind of villains or careless people. They need the support when things go wrong.
As supporters of Indian team, its our duty to be with the team during crisis or bad times rather than spew venom like hyper-aggressive beasts.
The players have complete freedom to give importance to whatever they want.
If they think IPL is more important to them, then they have complete right to do so.
All that they need to do is take a firm decision like Sachin, who has decided not to play international T20s more than a couple of years back.
There has been many blunders beginning from the selection of WC team before the IPL even began.
Some of the best Indian players in the IPL have been resting at home whereas underperformers went to the windies with the comfort of past performances.
No doubt media is meant to collect, analyse and present news to the public.
But at the same time, its important to give a constructive feedback and not to always create "bouquets or brickbats" situation.
We are with you Team India. We have a world winning team and all it needs is the maximum utilisation of our resources!
With love.. Anil
