indian cricket riding a new high : LUSENET : The 1976ersBBoard : One Thread

Are you folks following cricket these days?

Gone have Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Sidhu to name a few.

Enter Ganguly, Laxman and Mongia. The recent OD series against Zimbabwe India were lucky to win, thanks to some fireworks from newcomers, Yuvraj and D. Mongia. This should be good news for India. We have players to fall back on especially without Sachin Tendulkar (who was rested).

Sriram, do you remember the good old days of cricket we played for JIPMER? Ofcourse in the first year we were just carrying the kit. I used to be vexed. We did practise a fair bit on mat in the side of the JIPMER grounds? Do you remember Sugumar he was the captain in the first year and Suri, Santosh, Sushil, Murali? Do you still play some cricket? I do once in a year. We have a intra-hospital match. Last year I scored 92 runs, believe it or not!! I am not fit as I used to be.

What do you mean by how many innings? One innings duppy. I have another match this summer.

Yes I remember Makhija. There was an equivalent, Henry Srinivasan in our senior batch who used to bowl like that.

Do your boys play cricket or has the talent died with you?
