India decides @ 9 - more reasons to like Sunil Gavaskar.....

Sunil Manohar Gavaskar was quite handsome and played quality Cricket in his days. His defence was strong, his dress was impeccable – he displayed devotion, dedication, determination, concentration, application and more………  He was the first to reach the great landmark of 10000 runs in Test Cricket; wore helmet [specially designed skull protector] only very late in his career and can orate very well.

Now that IPL is over, every other channel not knowing what to do has only one panel discussion – ‘whether N Srinivasan should resign or not’.  A strong politician was asking whether BCCI is above Police and how they can have a probe………………. could not understand the logic at all…. when something is amiss, it is but the natural for anybody / organization to have a probe  at least to know what exactly wrong… what is wrong in BCCI having a probe – whether with N Srinivasan staying or not… anyway that should never impact the Police investigation rightfully.

Now at 9PM – there was panel discussion in many channels – and in NDTV – Srinivasan Jain was organizing one – with Mr Vinod, Hyderabad Cricket Association, Mr Kirti Azad ex-cricketer and Sunil Gavaskar…

Mr Vinod sought to portray that ‘that Srinivasan should go’ is a public opinion and he has conveyed that – though his opinion is not so at this stage…… he was asked why he lacks the courage to speak out in BCCI.

Sunil was smiling all the time and when his turn came – he politely spoke – ‘when India toured West Indies in 1971, the public opinion was that Ajit Wadekar should not be the Captain overlooking Mansur Alikhan Pataudi.  Wadekar went on to win 3 Series thereafter and hence public opinion can be wrong and need not be the yard stick’ – the same stout strong defence that he displayed during his playing days.

Kirti Azad elaborated the various financial irregularities and improper accounting that reportedly occurred during IPL 2 when the game went to South Africa and asked Gavaskar as to why the report detailing irregularities is gathering dust and no action taken.

Sunil again with a smile said…. ‘before I speak anything, Kirti owes me 1 dollar in 1984 and that it has earned much interest’………………..

Wadekar analogy and 1 Dollar……………….. are you able to place anything and this is a elite panel discussion……….. Sure you have enough reasons for liking the master batsman, masterly spokesman named Sunil Manohar Gavaskar who makes you think all the time !!!!!!

  2. Gavaskar sure was a good batter - but was also a great politician dividing the team and promoting coteries... Can any one forget the 36 he made in 60 overs in the first match of inaugural WC defeating not self, team but also captain - poor Venkatraghavan... Aalavayan
