The Team Meeting Before The Match With Victoria Bushrangers

Friday, October 16, 2009 at 12:39 AM

 

Just came from the team meeting. The mood was much lighter today as compared to the earlier meeting. Boys looked pretty confident and resolute. But the most notable trait was the camaraderie amongst the players.

It’s heartening to see a budding young Indian player sitting between the best South African wicket-keeper and the fearless New Zealander. The last victory, the weeklong stay and the coach’s efforts, together have combined to bring the boys so close that it appears as if the team had been playing together for years.

In the meeting, the coach applauded the team’s effort in the previous match and highlighted the fact that the team never let the intensity slip till the last wicket was over. He even got calls from his peers from South Africa who noted the determination with which the team kept the match in throughout in hand.

Ray felt that we can still improve our fielding and called on youngsters like Virat to set the examples in the field.

Ray also mentioned about the two of the senior most players’ birthdays this week and called on players to gift them victories in the next two matches. Kallis would be celebrating his 34th Birthday tomorrow. Anil’s Birthday is on the day of Diwali when we would be facing the Delhi Daredevils. How big can a day get? By the way, the three fanatic fans have personal invitations to Anil’s B’day party.

The meeting ended with this wonderful video that Ray has prepared using Siva's photographs to highlight the joys of success and togetherness.
