India's disastrous defeat
India loss to New Zealand today was disastrous. It was sheer luck that the team recovered from 44 for 8 to 164. Why this team can't perform is mysterious. Probably their performance must hit rock bottom (if it has not already) or even a stage lower than rock bottom; the standard must dip to the worst in the world; then all the hype and glamour will die down; no cricketers will asked to model for products; then we will begin to rediscover cricket, we will learnt to play it afresh; then, hopefully, a new chapter will open...
