Sachin's record for Mumbai team is not so thrilling that it will prompt cricket fans to shake their legs.Rather if Mumbai Cricket Assocaition decides to drop sachin then his fans will set mumbai on fire.

its not about the sachin's records for mumbai but the 'value' for mumbai...vikas...

if sachin announces that he is leaving mumbai for the state association corruption...his fan will set mumbai on fire...as you have yourself said...

we should see the value of jatman threatening to move haryana in similar vein... he is undoubtedly the face of delhi...

SP,

The difference between the two cricketing cultures is that we care a bit more and are a little more passionate about the game.

I think the difference is accentuated when you consider Vijay Dahiya, coach of Delhi, talk of "how excited his team was to see Dhawan hit Akhtar for six" when Delhi lost to Pakistan in a warm up game.

Vide too Akash Chopra talking about his 190 odd in the Md Nissar Trophy instead of focusing on the fact that Delhi was the first team to lose the Trophy to Pakistan.

Contrast that with both Muzumdar and Amre apologizing for Mumbai's poor domestic season in 2007/08.

That is the difference between our cricketing cultures.

When I called the Delhi team "spineless bastards", Delhi bloggers were outraged that I could use "such language" but beyond that, Delhi remained strangely indifferent.

I expect the DDCA to call Sehwag's bluff. And I also expect Sehwag to toe the party line and become a nice cushy doormat for the DDCA to step all over. Some cosmetic changes will be made, given the media interest in the issue but beyond that, expect more of the same.

Cheers

had you posted your comment on NC's you would have known that what i said or feel about delhi...

but having said that we are talking about cultures who are extreme in one way or other...

while mumbai is overtly possesive where even a sneeze is enough for ppl to flok steets delhi barely cares about sehwag going to haryana...

where a captain or coach has to apologize to lose a sport... a game... and another coach can talk about a six in losing cause...

...and i have always believed that its admission of one's failure to put across a point or argument when one resort to abusing...

Vikas said...

SP,
My first sentence was with reference to what Mumbai will loose by droping Sachin Tendulkar.It's Delhi fan's looseness that they are not responding to this crisis.

straight point said...

you are right delhi as whole is not responding to the crises as it should...but jatman is garnering support by each day each hr passing by...i hope something positive comes out of this 'manthan'...

tho don't expect miracles... :)

SP,

The point is not the language, but the apathy.

Cheers,

much like ipl vikas..?

Vikas said...

SP,
I wanted to say that Delhi Board should not let their player go easily.They should not leave any stone unturned to happen this crisis.


In my previous comment I had written that Delhi Board should allow their players to go.Sorry for mistake.

straight point said...

its ok vikas... :)

this is the way it should happen but what we are hearing from arrogant officials as if they are lining up in queue to sign noc for sehwag...

Vikas said...

SP,
They should stop this nonsence as this grievanve is not acclaiming Delhi Board's prestige as a good cricket board.
