    Crickets are okay as long as they're not inside the building at night, otherwise they'll keep you up all night. The chirping they make is very loud up close, which is why we had them fried and served for breakfast (I'm joking, but I do know someone who does that sort of thing)

    On many May nights

    On many May nights
    distant chirping can be heard
    from the bushes, trees, and roofs
    as if they'd awoken from their roots
    to sing, as the only ones who spoke to them
    were the birds as they lingered in the land of dreams.
    But upon closer inspection, if one may look,
    they would find an insect much locust-like
    which leaps a few feet high when surprised.
    And the sound it makes is harsher
    than the ringing inside an ear.
    Late summer comes with stormy weather,
    come nightfall with no wind.
    A cricket shows up, serenading for its mate,
    too lovesick to even notice nightjars and bats
    who would so often prey, delivering cruel fate.

    Sachin Tendulkar

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MASTER BLASTER

    From not getting chance to play in first eleven matches of Ranji
    To playing most matches for India
    You showed that patience is must

    From walking silently on umpires wrong decisions
    To answering them with the bat in next match
    You proved that anger is not the solution

    From 10 is just a number
    To 10 is an emotion
    You become the reason behind this

    From Cricket is just a sport in India
    To Cricket is a religion in India
    You defined the aura of this beautiful game

    From entering as Sachin Tendulkar
    To leaving as God of cricket
    You are still ruling our hearts

    Dreams

    On my point, dreams were absolutely a Riddle.

    When you sort it out, you may found a perfect solution for life.

    I loved to bowl fast
    and being a left armer
    definitely helped.

    I hated batting
    and my fielding was sloppy
    yet they'd select me.

    In a crucial match
    we were in deep trouble when
    I went into bat.

    But I ran out the
    other batsman and then
    got out for a duck.

    Even my bowling
    was wayward and my captain
    took me off quickly.

    Our opponents were
    close to victory when I
    dropped an easy catch.

    The simple catch, if
    taken, would have swung the game
    into our favour.

    Undoubtedly, I
    was going to be slaughtered
    after the defeat.

    They needed four runs
    to win when their last batsman
    hit a lofted shot.

    I was at long on
    and the ball travelled towards
    me like a rocket.

    Not exactly known
    for my catching prowess, I
    stood there like a pole.

    When it came very
    close, I acted, jumping up
    and raising my hands.

    And fortunately,
    the ball didn't abandon
    my butter fingers.

    For me, taking that
    difficult catch was no less
    than an adventure.

    The match was won and
    I had saved myself from a
    terrible thrashing.

    Life is cricket

    1
    Life is like a cricket match
    Hit every ball whether fast or slow
    But don't try to make shot on every ball
    Stay on the pitch ; wait for a good ball and when it comes make a six .
    2
    Life is like a cricket match
    Try to make century and create your own records but when will be out in case do good fielding and give 100% in everywhere.
    Whether in any case when you feel injustice remember ' god' is 'third umpire'.

    //how much do we loose to gain what we didn't want but needed to forget what we desired//

    As the hero flung his cricket kit over his shoulder and marched out of the scene with a swagger, she sat still, hit by flashbacks. She reminisced of the days when she used to be the one with the kit on her back and practicing at the nets. The days when she used to be fit and active, with such quick reflexes as to die for. With talent that was being astonishingly chiseled by the rigorous training. Her spin was tremendous and outshone that of every player she had ever played with. Her batting was also improving impressively. She was very lucky when it came to fitness, having never incurred any serious injuries.

    ****************************************************

    Her ambitions were lofty. Being an all rounder of the ranks of Kapil Dev was what she dreamt of. And actually it looked all the more achievable. Be it her bowling, batting or agility as a fielder, all were par excellence compared with anyone her age. Though not her coach's favourite, she had clearly impressed him. It was a matter of a few months, when she would be facing the trials for the U-16 cricket and was sure of qualifying without much trouble.

    She had become fond of cricket at a very young age. She obsessed over it day and night. Having a sharp brain helped her glide through studies even though cricket left very little time to devote to matters of the written word. Her parents never quite objected to her hobby of cricket as long as her marks didn't suffer. Petty things like fractures in her fingers, were not told to anyone in the family. Inter-school cups were a given whenever she set her foot on the field. Her ease on the pitch was akin to a that of a bird in the sky. Soon she was the youngest in the school and district cricket teams.

    ****************************************************

    Cricket had so intertwined in her life that both were one and the same. She did not even realize she had reached ninth standard until she flunked, for the first time, in chemistry. That day, she was called upon by her father. As she had thought, he was infuriated though unsuccessfully trying to hide it under his soft voice. The discussion was long...Unexpectedly, she came out unscathed! She was able to convince him of getting good marks in next tests. However, she could not muster enough courage to tell him of the upcoming trials. She knew that her grueling practice for the trials had been the cause of the low scores and that once the routine became a bit less exhaustive, she would be able to study and scrape through the tests...

    The eventful day of the trials finally arrived. She outshone everybody who appeared for the selections. Having done for the day, she left highly hopeful of her selection. A week later, she was dumbstruck to find the list of selected players but without her name... She broke into a run and did not stop until she found her coach. He did not need to be told what had happened. With a grim look, he brought her face to face with the bitter truth of her beautiful sport. There was money which needed to be fed to the right people to get into the team or shift to a prestigious coaching in another city. Her heart shattered with the realization that it had to be the end of her pursuit... With no money to spare on things beyond necessities in a family of seven, and under their expectations to be earning for the family- studies were the only options she had.

    ****************************************************

    A poke in the ribs by her flatmate, brought her back to the present, where the hero was now hoisting the world cup over the elated team... Ten years had passed, she was sitting in her rented apartment in the stranger city, where she worked as a data engineer, in a reputed firm. She was great at coding and it came easy to her, given her sharp brains. Her family was proud of her accomplishments, she won accolades at her work and a fat pay check smiled at her at month end. At the core of her though, a younger girl kept on with the net practice for the trials.

    She got up, brushing popcorn from her lap. Her heavy figure walked gloomily towards the balcony looking out into the dismal city traffic. The little girl inside her implored her to bowl, hit and catch... She looked onto the street below with an air of boredom, to find filthy looking street kids playing cricket with battered plastic things...

    ****************************************************

    And an idea bold her! She felt victorious! Finally she was on the strike-end. Turning back into the house, she sat down, penning the first details of the sponsorship camp she would set for kids who wanted to take up her favourite sport.
    She had her bat again and aimed for a six..
    Wish her luck.

    ಮಹಿಳಾ ವಿಶ್ವಕಪ್ ಫೈನಲ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಸೋತರು ಎನ್ನುವುದಕ್ಕಿಂತ, ನಾವೂ ಕಮ್ಮಿ ಇಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಭಾರತೀಯ ನಾರಿಯರು ತಮ್ಮ ಶಕ್ತಿಯನ್ನು ಪ್ರದರ್ಶಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಎಂದು ಹೇಳಬಹುದು. ಇದೇ ಮೊದಲ ಬಾರಿಗೆ ಫೈನಲ್ ಪ್ರವೇಶಿಸಿದ ಇವರಲ್ಲಿ ಅನುಭವದ ಕೊರತೆ ಕಾಣುತ್ತಿತ್ತು.
    ಆದರೂ ಮಹಿಳಾ ಕ್ರಿಕೆಟ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾದರಿಯಾಗಿ ನಿಂತಿರುವ ಕೆಲ ಅಟಗಾರ್ತಿಯ ಕುರಿತು ಈ ಲೇಖನ.

    Cricket

    India qualify for the first time ever in the finals of the t20 women's world cup.. will face the four time champions Australia at their home ground.... Can India win the match and they will declared as a champions of this icc tournament... India played very well in this tournament... The team effort stands them in the finals deserving finalist ..... India already beat Australia in the group stages.... Can they did again and becomes the champions let's see in the finals at Sunday.... The team who gives their best will becomes champions.....
    India has a strong bowling unit ... But the batting is not upto the marks... The tops 3 batsman is not upto the marks they are smriti mandhana, Rodrigues and harmanpreet Kaur... If they will contribute a big innings in the finals... Then it will be a tough fight... I think 180-200 is the expected scores in the final.... Hope for the best.....
    All the best to team India for the finals

    MSD THE LEGEND

    एक साधारण सा लड़का था।।
    एक सच्चे दिल का लड़का था।।
    सात नंबर की जर्सी में, वह आया था।।
    क्रिकेट की दुनिया में
    अपनी मर्जी से, वह आया था।।
    अपने छक्के से आसमान को
    इस कदर फाड़ा था।।
    जिसे सिल नहीं पाया कोई दर्जी था।।

    जो अनहोनी को भी होनी कर दे
    उसका नाम महेंद्र सिंह धोनी है।।

    जिसने भारत को नया नाम दिया
    इस क्रिकेट के जगत में
    शायद वह इंसान नहीं लगता है ।।
    वह अवतरित हुआ किसी रजत के खान में

    मां बाप के मुस्कान के लिए
    वह काम किया रेलवे में
    जब भी बल्लेबाजी करने आता था
    खेल का रुख बदलता था वन-वे में

    झारखंड का नाम रोशन किया
    अपने क्रिकेट के हुनर से
    भारत को तीन आईसीसी ट्रॉफियां जिताई
    अपने क्रिकेट के जुनून से।।
    A TRIBUTE TO MSD THE LEGEND.
