Cricketism: T20 World Cup without good Bowlers!
-DR. ABDUL RUFF
The world cup in t20 in Sri Lanka has clearly shown that if the bowlers do justice to their profession cricketism would be interesting,. The team that has serious bowlers who refuse to leak runs by wasting deliveries ostensibly seeking wickets has advantage over the team were the bowlers and fielders do not work for the success of the team but want wickets by wasting any number of deliveries.
The tournament has also shown that if the bowlers make the batboys shine- and not to let them toil without runs- the batboys would happily shine by hitting big 6s and huge 4s. On the contrary, if the bowlers do not offer the batboys space for expansive shots, and fielders take the work seriously and honestly, batboys fall one after another, because none of the today’s batboys is accustomed to standing at the crease without scoring runs.
Boys are paling international cricket without real bowling, throwing and catching practices and home this is done deliberately to let the batboys shine. That is without proper defence of the field. how Sachuins could shine for too long by driving the harmless ball to the boundary consecutively It is a shame that on a huge ground there are only 11 fielders, including bowlers and keeper.
It appears the cricket teams among the cricket playing nations are under tremendous pressure to find a replace meant for Sachuin Tendulakar so that India‘s gods association could just ask him to relax and enjoy non-cricketism life. The clumsy cricketism situation of India is now deeply worried that Sachuin is finished and there is none to influence the bowlers to offer enough runs to shine.
Today India is on a fault finding mission to fix the causes of its pathetic runout at the 20/20 world cup. When India loses an important match like the so-called world cup ( this is not really a world cup almost every nation is outside the cricketism exercises and ony a few teams play it) but India become restless and quickly blames the bat, field, pitch or something else and it sees everything blue and grey and red.
At long last Sachuin has declared himself out of cricketism job from the field, unwillingly and tentatively and is obviously awaiting final orders from the “concerned”. Have his disciples, unable to see a fast failing god, asked their god to retire?
Interestingly, some teams like New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and South Africa came just enjoy life and not to win and they returned early. They do not have effective bowlers. Their bowlers are trained only to offer too many runs by wasting deliveries. Only West Indies, Sri Lanka and India have somewhat ok bowlers. Some good bowlers is the secret of success. Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan are weak teams. Pakistani players can lose at will because not many take it seriously enough. Afridi, known as Boom, is unserious about his profession and has become Busss. One cannot however say he is responsible for the team defeat at the hands of SL bowlers. Maybe they were told that the hosts Sri Lanka is the favoured team for some reasons. Umpires were sporting blue uniform which is the SL colour. Does n it mean anything?
Indian media supported India first an SL next. But after Indian exit without seeing the Semis, they canvassed for SL
India has reason to be happy that Pakistan did not reach the finals, though Indians would prefer to cry for Pakistan’s entry into Semi-finals.
The question is not who should win, but how can they play international matches without good bowlers and fielders.
