Tu mera Viru : An open letter from a fan

Dear Viru,

This post is overdue. Not just overdue, it’s very late. Still it’s not as late as you played your favourite cut shot, leaning away to slash the ball over the waiting slips.

To be honest, it’s taken me time to finally come to terms with the fact that you will no longer play competitive cricket – no test matches, no ODIs, not even the IPL. That you will no longer essay any further classics. That I will just have to make do with old memories on YouTube.

Let me try to describe the thrill of watching you bat.

When Ganguly came out to bat, I knew there would be a silky cover drive. With Dravid, I knew that his forward prod would be technically correct. With Sachin…well…I knew that the ball was going to hit the middle of the bat.

But when you came out to bat the only thing I knew you would do is smile.

The Orange Cap : Time for a re-think?

It’s quite clear most of you think ABdV is the main man at the IPL. With a massive 40% of the votes, followed by Baz at 15% and Chris Gayle at 12.5%, the South African skipper is streets ahead of the competition.

But if you are following the IPL 2015, you will know that Ajinkya Rahane (who was not even a part of the poll!) leads the run scoring charts and wears the Orange Cap.

Then again, it makes complete sense.
