stray thoughts - placid pitch scorer ... prices of CNG & PNG

Its mad crowds everywhere.   ,….. but before you read something on the record attendance at Melbourne and something on a cinema (yes Movie preview !!)   read the post on Kanithamethai Ramanujan movie : – there is lot of rhetoric from the Congress' anti-corruption avatar, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi expressing  reservations on the manner in which the Maharashtra cabinet rejected the Adarsh probe report. "I don't agree with the Maharashtra government's rejection of the Adarsh probe report. Adarsh probe report should be reconsidered," Gandhi said at a press conference in New Delhi which was attended by all Congress-ruled chief ministers including Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan

And as AAP is preparing to take oath of governance, comes the news that prices  of compressed natural gas and piped natural gas are rising in Delhi, while they are falling in Gujarat. CNG is auto fuel and PNG is the cooking gas distributed through pipes. The development has the potential to queer the pitch for a war of words between political parties at a time when the newly formed Aam Aadmi Party, which had high energy and water prices as the theme of its campaign, is about to take charge in Delhi. That Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi is the main opposition party’s prime ministerial candidate only adds more colour.

At Durban, the second day began with grey skies and a persistent rain that wiped out the morning session but when play began, more than three hours behind the scheduled start, it was in blazing sunshine with the fans reaching for the sunblock.  As we looked forward to dominance from Indians and century by Murali Vijay, Steyn scripted something else.  He rolled over the lower order to have a 6 for and had India reeling to  334 from 198 for 1….. despite Kohli and Rahane making some runs India folded suddenly with ducks by Rohit Sharma and Jadeja who got out to Duminy….. Manjrekar was part of a discussion on whether Dhawan is a wonder only on placid wickets but……… what about the most talented Rohit Sharma ?

At the time of posting this, England are 105 runs ahead after scoring only 255 in first essay……….. they bowled well and should be blaming themselves for that last wicket partnership which took Aussies from 164 to finish at 204.

On a Saturday, how do you feel going to work ?!?
