CRICKET - THINGS YOU CAN LEARN FROM THIS GAME
10.38 PM, 14th Dec.2010 - I Have just called my Digital TV customer care executive to start Ten Cricket on my Set Top Box so that I can enjoy IND-SA series starting from 16th Dec ( Yaar PCC exams khatam ho gaye ab toh dekh sakta hoon na !!) .
I am crazy about cricket just like any other cricket follower. In India Cricket is more than a sport and Sachin ,another name of God .
Is Cricket just an another mode of entertainment ???
My Answer is No. It is more than just a game and one can learn a lot from it's Historical Events .
So you don't agree with me !! . Hmmmm.....Again I have to apply my writing skills to convince you . Give me some time to think !!

(2) I equally respect each and every game and one can learnt from any sports.... Ok then Get , Set and GO ..........
(B) CRICKET - THINGS YOU CAN LEARN FROM THIS GAME
Anil Kumble with a broken jaw and gets Brian Lara lbw -India vs WI 4th test Antigua 2002
This shows your Commitment towards your Profession. Choose the Career of your choice and then give your 100% to it and you will get unbelievable results.
The sight of Anil Kumble emerging from the pavilion, ready to bowl, his face bandaged, in the Antigua Test of 2002, is one of cricket's most inspiring.
He bowled 14 consecutive overs and finally dismissed Brian Lara while bowling with a broken jaw. He was due to fly back to Bangalore the following day for surgery, and as he said, "At least I can now go home with the thought that I tried my best.
"It was one of the bravest things I've seen on the field of play," said Sir Vivian Richards later.
Batting at No. 7 (Ajay Ratra at No. 8 made a century), Kumble was hit by Mervyn Dillon. He spat out blood but batted on for another 20 minutes.
This shows that the biggest Motivator in this world is you yourself. If you want to do something then do it for yourself.
(3) LEADERSHIP - LEADING BY EXAMPLE
GREAME SMITH BATTING WITH BROKEN HAND - AUS V/s SA , 3rd test 5th Day, Sydney , 7th Jan.2009
S.A. was struggling to save test match against Aussies and with 9 wickets down and there was no way that the South African captain Graeme Smith could come to bat in the last wicket, “Smith walked out at No. 11, looking to survive 8.2 overs with a broken hand, his own blood recently injected into his right elbow, and a desperate Australian attack”
It was a special moment in World Cricket to watch Smith come out from that dressing room to bat in No. 11 with his broken hand and all the Australian crowd giving Graeme a standing ovation was really inspiring.
There is a saying that a Leader s'd lead from the front by setting an example for others and that's what we learn from this instance.
(4) NEVER SAY DIE ATTITUDE
MOHD. KAIF AND YUVRAJ PARTNERSHIP AT LORDS, NATWEST SERIES FINAL , IND V/s ENG , 14TH JULY 2002
Chasing as mammoth a target of 325 , India was struggling at 5-146 with all big guns back to the pavilion. Two Youngsters Kaif and Yuvraj were on the crease but no one was expecting miracles from them.
