Dreadful Dream...

shared by straight point on Tuesday, November 20, 2007

last night i saw a dreadful dream which i want to share with you...

i saw that BCCI has become more professional. sharad pawar has given way to harsha bhogle.... there seems to be transparency in whatever bcci do...be it selection...media coverage...selection committees...etc...they have appointed a ceo...the coach is doing very good job with indian team without any interference...players are becoming more focused toward fitness with no emphasis on 'star system'...with every player is told of his role in the team...with clear emphasis on performances rather that reputations...selectors are professionals with 3 years terms and accountability to selection committee...there is media manager with the team...manager appointed is also a professional...tour committee goes in advance to see the itinerary is well etched out in consultation with players work load...with more emphasis on camps and tour games with an eye on getting more accustomed to the conditions of visiting country...there are only few ranji teams...with overseas players dying to get into our state teams to get much needed match practice to enhance their career prospects...with the backup of such system we have become world champions in virtually all forms of cricket...infact so much is our dominance that icc is considering to the proposal of finishing next world cup in two days flat....first day teams will come together for the opening ceremony and on second day all teams will unanimously handover the world cup trophy to team india...in short virtually everything which we carve for...

dreadful did i said...hold your breath...here comes the second part....

with no competition in sight the cricket is becoming boring by each day with team india winning more matches than ever...with professional media manager appointed there is no chance of getting 'sound bites' a la lele, niranjan shah and dbv...every information regarding team, injuries etc are distributed well in advance before press conference begins...captains are relieved from facing media at the drop of hat...getting more time spending on cricket rather the off field activities...there is nothing to report upon other than a perfect match so the journalist are getting repetitive in their applause...reporters in tv are yawning with VERY SHORT CRICKET NEWS...that we have again defeated australia with huge margin...and their captain is under pressure to show up with some fight...anyway with nothing spicy happening in indian cricket media has diverted all its attention to indian olympic association and indian hockey coz the 'real stories' are happening there...

no worthy indian blog left to burn energy and web space on how the bcci should go about it...no one is writing long posts of who should be in our team, who should be our captain...who should be our coach or where he is gonna come from...instead we are taking about the state of affairs of cricket with other teams in the world...that too very sparingly coz how many times we can talk about same topic...office and social life is getting increasingly bore for nothing to talk about other than weather...no long hot passionate discussions about previous match...or bcci not doing this not doing that...often people are looking at one another with blank stare...

i was getting increasingly restless with some drops of sweat appearing on my forehead, throat was getting choked...and then i woke up with some noise...i switched on tv and saw reports that selectors are threatening to quit...there is no sign of coach yet...after they failed to get any worthy here on earth, are now planning to go in to space for the search of one...read in newspaper that BCCI is acting like a dictator...got a call from a friend that only a day left in test match and we don't even know the composition of team...some mysterious injuries has come to fore with no one to explain to media what the real problem is...and smile was returning slowly to my face...

i was beginning to breathing again...i felt like i have come out of suffocating jail...everything seemed so normal...i heaved the sigh of relief...

isn't this enough for all of us to realize that we owe so much to BCCI for being what they are...for our own sake...and yet we want them to become what i saw in my dream...

dreadful isn't it...
