It’s not loosing that hurts us but the effort and spirit while playing, lethargic attitude on the field costs not only series but also step down position test ranking.
1 or 2, max of 3-4 players may not be in form not the entire team, how can 1 man score in all the matches and rest can perform so badly.
AGAIN its not loosing which has hurt Indian cricket fans, but the effort.
I do not agree when people blame cricketers for showing up on AD when injured because playing cricket is different and doing an AD is different.
Playing requires lot of effort but not shooting for AD.
A Cricketers professional life is very short unlike few like Dravid, Sachin, Ganguly, who have been for long time now so I don’t see any harm when they earn some decent bucks by doing some ADs. There are many cricketers who have played couple of matches for INDIA whom we do not even know. Because of selectors politics or personal grudge on a particular state their lives are ruined Ex: Robin Uthappa who did play well initially but after he was rested he never got a chance to comeback even after performing good in domestic cricket and IPL, what about his future???? Does he appear in any ADs now ????? so whats wrong in doing some commercials when are playing good to secure their future?
We have ODI’s and Champions League coming in few days lets see how they’ll perform in ODI and Champions League. Will they continue to perform the same in ODI’s, comeback to INDIA and regain their form immediately to play well in CHAMPIONS LEAGUE which proves what are the players upto ??????
