Brickbats Can Wait

A blog by meg:


..for right now, I am just going to enjoy the fact that we finished our most successful tour of NZ.

After all, what is not to celebrate? We won a Test series in NZ after 41 years. We won the ODI series comprehensively. Gambhir had a terrific tour Test-wise and Sehwag took the honours in ODIs. Indian bowlers outshone their counterparts by some distance. Most of our batsmen were amongst runs. Dravid had a good series(words cannot describe how pleased I am at this). He now also holds the record for most catches. Even when the team was in a tough spot, there was always someone who put his hand up and pulled the team out of trouble. Most importantly, Dhoni passed the “overseas series” test.

Sure, people will raise legitimate concern about poor fielding/catching. Some will say that the pitches were hardly how they usually are in NZ, NZ is one of the weaker sides right now, Dhoni should have declared earlier, blah blah blah. Well you know what. I don’t care. I really don’t. So, for now, why don’t you pass me the brickbats….and I’ll forward bouquets to the team instead :)

Absolutely! As someone who has seen the team getting walloped abroad very frequently, I am happy to take small steps towards being the best team ever..

agree on your take on Dhoni as well…

Thanks meg

yes,
the PM can wait
all criticisms can wait
I am happy the most because we have proved ourselves as a “team”
a team to be reckoned with.

I am also happy for Dhoni
he needed this success to strengthen his voice – and hopefully he will get it.
