The Australians have a consultant psychologist in their team. I think it’s high time they hire one who understands the “Indian” mind better than the one who currently dons the mantle. The folks (I’m sorry the Blokes! 😉 ) seem to have tried everything possible to bring the Indian Cricket Team down to the ground – accusations, blames – even blatant lies!
Ricky Ponting rightly said at the post-match Presentation ceremony – “I think our cricket has dropped over the last week!”
Duh! – What else do you expect? .. When you have people in your side who are more into playing mind-games than cricket, your cricket will obviously “drop off!”
Focus-shift … (swoooooooosh!) … Indian Captain – MS Dhoni – Now this is something both Sunil Gavaskar as well as yours truly observed – Dhoni does not like hogging the limelight. After receiving the trophy, the bloke (sic!) was near invisible. He lets his team enjoy their moment of glory – He doesn’t need to prove a point to anyone. They know!
It’s been very entertaining cricket for the last couple of months and the controversies are something that will make Bollywood proud! Amen to a great series! – India has won the Commonwealth Bank Tri-series down under!
The title, by the way was coined by Sachin Tendulkar – on the eve of the 2nd Final – “Khatam Karo, Ghar Chalo” .. (Let’s finish it off and go home!) and what a way to do it!
