Cricket is known for its gratitude, actions and verbal slangs are part and parcel of the game but those should have a boundary too. Don’t you think so? After all, Cricket is known as ‘gentlemen’s game’ and we are bestowed to have witnessed captains like Kapil Dev, Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid maintaining the dignity and the baton is well carried forward by MS Dhoni who we hardly see in any brawl. Virat & Ashwin’s cold war is open to all from quite few games.
My only question in this forum is… Is this much of aggression actually needed? Shouldn’t the energy be utilised in managing the spirit of the team rather than missing a catch? Isn’t Captain Kohli coming into bad light in the sight of few actual cricketing fans? Who just want a nail biting ending and good overall cricket?
Eventually Cricket turning filthy is the last thing we would want to watch on our Idiot Box.
Will messing up with Captain Kohli cost Ravi Ashwin his place back into the Indian Squad in future?
