BCCI is Mindless ! ~ allowing and in fact ensuring Indian Cricketers succumb to Mind Games in International Matches even at Home in India!
We lost away in England and Australia ~ in fact got thrashed !
We lost to England at Home !
And Now we have lost to Pakistan at Home ! ~ Disastrous Batting and Not Penetrative enough Bowling ~ except for some stray performances !
All under Captain Dhoni and BCCI !
Sehwag takes the Catch in slips aff a Jadeja Ball and Wk Capt Dhoni runs off to celebrate with Jadeja ignoring Sehwag !…
…….and they call it the Dressing Room Divide !
The Divide has been created by BCCI and Dhoni ~ a Superstar who’s unable to command respect from other superstars !
It’s all about Monies ! and the Arrogance and how Power Corrupts and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely ! ~ you are in control to spend Billions of Dollars in the BCCI Kitty the way you want ! ~ why do you think top politicians head state cricketing bodies ! ~you create a hotbed concept like IPL and run it like your fiefdom ~ This not only is corrupting young talent but also is affecting the game of established Indian Cricketers who approach Test Matches and 50 overs ODIs with a T 20 mindset and throw their wicket cheaply attempting uncalled for and rash strokes
I completely am in sync with the worry that just retired Rahul Dravid voiced ” I’m more worried about the lack of Solid Batting Talent in India once the legendary powerhouses have all retired ! ~ Who will take their place !”
Who will indeed !
What can we do about it !
When Dhoni came onto the scene years ago in a fearless swashbuckling style with iconic long hair and helicopter strokes ,I became an Instant Fan ~ He deserved all the Adulation and Endorsements and Monies he made ~ but clearly the past few years all this has gone to his head and his game and captaincy has suffered ~ some of his on field strategies have been inexplicable ~ often a strong impression is felt that he simply does not care if we win or lose! ~ no fire in the belly ! no passion ! ~ that we saw in him when he burst onto the scene years ago ~ got him and Harbhajan Singh at the Town Hall Stamp Duty Office in Mumbai a few years ago registering property they had invested in now upscale Lower Parel area in Mumbai ~ Nothing wrong in such judicious Investments except that it creates an impression that riches from the Fat Fees from BCCI and State Bodies and IPL and ofcourse Big Endorsements and the hero worship by a cricket crazy nation has gone to their head and led to complacency and underperformance and taking their place for granted in the Team
