What is meant by players going on strike?
Hockey though national game was never popular.In near future there are no chances that it will become popular.

20-20 was born as need of creating some exciting stuff from dieing cricket.

One of my friend�s comments: 20-20 World Cup and Britney�s performance in MTV Award are same. Both were efforts to hold loosing grip on public.

Holiday for celebrating the Vicorty thats Stupidity :roll: there are far more important issues, take leave from your work or School

20-20 Might not be greatthing its a relief for cricket fans after so many poor performances, but the attitude of the players and media should be more professional dont hype too but still encourage

Cricket is Revenue generating sports hence the players have big cash awards, There are no sponsors for sport like Hockey

Politicians are taking advantage of the victory and have started giving election speeches. India may have mid term pools early next year

Hi All,

I dont understand why people like kapil dev will not be elected as president of BCCI.So that there will be only cricket not politics.No politician should be there in BCCI.

Regards,
Nik

There would be recognition only if you win at International levels like olympics or world sports event, or unless that sports has craze. you cannot expect a reward or recognition just because some one is playing.
Given the current scenarios its not easy for cricket players to make it Indian team those who make it really work hard to stay there.If some one achieves awards at international they are rewarded by Govt and the corporates its silly to make so much of Fuss

Twenty-20 - World Cup Final Post match presentation interview between Shastri and winning caption Dhoni

In the post-match presentation, Ravi Shastri to Dhoni "Congratulations to you and the whole Indian team for winning this world cup. You guys have produced a great nail baiting show.. and deserves the cup. We welcome you to share the joy with us."

Dhoni "Thanks Ravi, the match was pretty close encounter between two great teams and our guys held the nerve to win the game and cup."

Shastri, "Who was the main reason for this thrilling victory?"

Dhoni, "All us played well but I would say the main reason and man behind this great victory is Ajit Agarkar"

Shocked Shastri..., "Agarkar ? ? .. how come Agarkar... he didn't played in the final"..

Dhoni, "Yeaph.. that's the reason we won this low scoring match.. if he could have bowled in final, Pakistan would have scored the winning runs from his 4 overs...."

Shastri, "ok.. fine, To whom you want to thank for winning this final..."

Dhoni, "The team doctor deserves the credit... he really helped us to prepare for the final..."

Shastri, "Is it? ?.... how the doctor helped to prepare for the final... he is not the coach or physical trainer...Dhoni.. I am confused"

Dhoni, "Ravi... nothing to confuse... he failed Sehwag in the fitness test according to our game plan and we managed to pick a good playing team.. thus we weigh the doctor's contribution as very high... infact its better than our team effort in the field.. our game tactic worked well"

Shastri, "To whom you want to dedicate this World Cup?"

Dhoni, "The entire team including myself wants to dedicate this cup to Sachin, Dravid and Ganguly..."

Shastri, "I really really appreciate you... its good that you have so much respect to the seniors....and you ...."

Dhoni interrupts.... "Ravi.. let me complete... India would have exited in the Group matches if they decided to play in the series... thank god they opted out and we managed to play cricket and won the cup.."

Shastri, "The match was thrilling encounter and was concluded by a single mistake of Misbah.. Isn't it? "

Dhoni, "Yes you are right, after lofting the ball Misbah told me that he sent the ball to where there was no one....but he didn't know that there is a Malayali in every corner of the world.... This single mistake has costed the game to them and we won the cup..."

Shastri faints and Dhoni receives the CUP and thats the end of the great Twenty-20 world cup
