When M S Dhoni retired from Test Cricket

Published

M S Dhoni retirement

Our test captain, M S Dhoni retirement from Test Cricket must have brought tears in the eyes of many. But now he has additional time to himself. Of course, since the country plays very less test cricket, this additional time is not much. He has decided that this additional time will be dedicated to practice for the one-days, for the T-20 internationals, for the IPL , for Champions league. And hopefully in the same order…not in the reverse order. But alas, man proposes…god disposes…or rather the better-half disposes. We hear the better-half has started demanding more time from the ex-captain. After all, for all these days she had to do the domestic work…where she was the captain of their domestic team. Now the star batsman with the helicopter shot and with safe wicket keeping gloves and great captaincy skills was a great potential addition to her domestic team. So she laid out a list of training tasks for the great one himself. He was put in charge of training the domestic staff-

Task 1) Sweeping the floor – what better way than to employ the helicopter shot where the dirt can be deposited from the place where it is, directly to the dust bin . Advantage – saves time.
Sometimes the sweep shot can be employed to remove dirt from below furniture. Advantage – with the strong arms of the captain the dirt can be easily displaced from its current position to somewhere near the dustbin.

Task 2) Fetching the eggs or tomatoes , potatoes or onions – with the safe hands of a wicket-keeper, the respective shopkeeper can be asked to directly throw the required items from across the street to the balcony where they will be safely caught and then deposited to the containers. Advantage – saves the necessity of going all the way to the market.

Task 3) Washing clothes with the clothes pin – whose technique will be better than the best bludgeoning batsman himself!! After all the the clothes pin certainly resembles the bat. Advantage – the clothes are now very cleanly washed…of course sometimes the cloth gets frayed …but it’s a part of the biz.

Task 4) As you all know, the captain sometimes likes to chance his arm over and bowl…so what better way to use this skill than to put it to use in cleaning the overhead fans. Advantage – the fans now circulate cleaner air.

Task 5) As you all know, the captain plans out all the field placements and directs the fielders to their places by pointing out the locations – this skill is used by asking him to direct the domestic helps to their proper positions – Advantage – new josh in the domestic staff in doing their designated duties
So this is how the freed up time of the captain and his well known cricketing skills are put to good use by the better-half.
And advantage to the captain in all this, did you ask? Well he certainly gets a good workout and practice to come out on the top of his game, whenever he will next play for the country and that too without leaving the comfy confines of his house. And on top of that he keeps his better-half in good humor, which is very important in this epoch.
Do you agree with me, friends…?

वेळ संपत आली आहे
कदाचित दोन तीन सामने नंतर हा ना फील्ड वर दिसणार ना इंडियन जर्सी मध्ये, हीच ती व्यक्ती आहे ज्याने जिंकण्याची सवय लावली,
हीच ती व्यक्ती आहे ज्याने सर्वच ICC ट्रॉफी जिंकण्याचा विक्रम केला, हीच ती व्यक्ती आहे ज्याने शेवटच्या २ चेंडू वर १२ धाव हव्या असताना पण जिंकू शकतोच हा विश्वास दिला
थोडेच दिवस आहेत द्या त्याला मान सम्मान खेळू द्या त्याला हवा तसं
नंतर तर ” असा फिनिशर होणे नाही ” हे बोलण्यात आयुष्य घालवायचे आहे
एक गोष्ट लक्षात ठेव माही, तू एकदा टीम इंडिया मधून गेलास ना तर कसा होईल माहित नाही पुढे, हा तरुण वर्ग फक्त तुझा फॅन नाही रे तू यार आहेस सगळ्यांचा
जेवढे कधी ते कुठल्या मुलीला मिस करत नसतील ना तेवढ तुला करतात
रेल्वे टीम साठी खेळताना पहिली बॅट हि मित्राने स्वतःच्या पैश्यातून विकत घेऊन तुला दिली होती आणि एक जगजेत पर्व सुरु होणार होत
पण खरे आभार तर आपण त्या बॅनर्जी सरांचे मानले पाहिजेत , जाळीच्या पुढं चड्डी घालून उभं राहणाऱ्या पोराला त्याने तीन लाकडं मग उभं केलं आणि त्याने आज तिरंगा अख्या जगात डौलाने फडकवला
डिसेंबर २००४ , मीरपूर – बांग्लादेश,,,, हातात धोपाटणच जणू, ४२ इंच छाती, लाल लांबसडक केस, चालणं तर अगदी कसलेल्या मातीतल्या पहिलवाना सारखं । पण पहिल्याच चेंडूवर शून्यात धावबाद, रुको भाई हर झिरो कि भी एक कहानी होती है , कारण आता याचे टढके सुरु होणार होते, श्रीलंका – जयपूर-१८३ धाव चामिंडा वासला २ खणखणीत कव्हरला ला खेचून नाकातला वास घायला लावलास रे
पाकिस्तान – पेशावर-१४८ धाव अर्रर्रर्र त्या राणा नावेदला ३ लागोपाठ षटकार ठोकून त्याचे केस आणि करिअर दोन्ही बरबाद केलीस, आणि तिथून परवेझ मुशर्रफ तुझा दिवाना झाला
इंग्लंड – धर्मशाळा १३८ धाव तुझ्याकडून वाचावं म्हणून तो अँडरसन पायावर यॉर्कर मारू लागला , पण BC तू त्याला विनातिकीट हेलिकॉप्टर मध्ये बसवून थेट बर्मिंगहॅम ला सोडून आलास काय राव तुझा पाहुणचार अस करत्यात व्हय र भावड्या
१०-१५ वर्षात तुझ्यामुळे विकेट कीपिंग मध्ये एक हि वाईट दिवस आमच्या वाट्याला तू दिला नाहीस आज ३८ वर्षाच्या वयात हि २२ यार्ड धावपट्टी पार करताना तू उसेन बोल्ट ला हि मागे टाकतोस
तू खूप काही दिलासा तू खूप काही शिकवलंस , आपल्या ध्येयांवर तू प्रेम करायला शिकवलंस
आज तिसऱ्या नंबर वर येऊन अधिराज्य गाजवणारा कोहली ओपनिंग ची संधी दिल्यासोबत २ द्विशतक झळकावणारा रोहित शर्मा , ६ षटकार ठोकणारा युवी पाजी , रैना पंड्या सारखे फिनिशर्स, पूर्वी १० धाव म्हटल्या तरी तंतरणारी आपली बॉलिंग आज ४ धावांची हि सहज मॅच जिंकवणारा बुमराह आणि नुसत्या क्षेत्रक्षणाच्या जोरावर मॅच फिरवणारा सर जडेजा
संघ हरला कि तू सर्व जवाबदारी स्वतःवर घेतोस पण जिंकल्यावर फ्रेम मध्ये मात्र कॉर्नर ला दिसतोयस कसं शक्य होत रे तुला हे ?
विराट, जडेजा , रैना, अश्विन, शमी , राहणे हि तुझी इन्व्हेस्टमेंट आणीबाणी च्या क्षणी तू चक्क सिनिअर्स ना डावलून यांच्यावर विश्वास दाखवला होतास किती टीका सहन केल्यास , पण आज हि या इन्व्हेस्टमेंट चा रेफाऊंडबाळे प्रॉफिट मात्र तू क्रेडिट नाही घेत
मुलगी जन्मली ,पण तू ऑस्ट्रेलियात , तिला तू चक्क ४० दिवसांनी पाहिलंस तेव्हा पत्रकारांनी असा का केलास विचारल्यास तुझं उत्तर होत ” आधी देश – इथं भावना ड्रेससिंग रूम मध्ये सोडून यायच्या ” इतका कसा रे तू खणकर वागू शकतोस ?
हरल्यावर इतरांसारख्या बॅट, ग्लोव्हस तू फेकल्या नाहीस शांतच राहिलास इथं गल्लीत एक वाईड बॉल फेकला कि अख्या खानदानाचा उद्धार होतो राव आमचा इथं तू एवढा कसा रे कूल ?
टेस्ट ची रिटायरमेंट अनाऊन्स करण्याआधी रात्री एक वाजता तू रैना ला हॉटेल रूम मध्ये बोलावून घेऊन त्या व्हाईट जेरकय वर सेल्फी घायला लावलास , रैना ला काही संजयच्या आत तू म्हटलंस ” इथून पुढे मी कसोटी क्रिकेट खेळणार नाही” आणि तशीच ती व्हाईट जर्सी घालून तू झोपलास.
या पोरांच्या डोक्यावर तुझा परिसरूपी हात पडला आणि पोरांनी अख्या जगाचं सोनंच लुटलं
तू ज्या दिवशी क्रिकेट खेळणं बंद करशील त्या दिवशी तुझ्या घराबाहेर तुझ्या निर्णयाच्या निषेधार्थ रस्त्यावर उतरणारा मी पहिला असेन
“प्रिन्स ऑफ कोलकाता ” खुद्द दादा म्हणतो अस
मी जेव्हा मरणाला टेकेन तेव्हा मला फुल्ल वोल्युम मध्ये रवी शास्त्रींच्या कंमेंटरी सोबत धोनी चा वर्ल्ड कप विंनिंग षटकार दाखवा हे चक्क सर गावस्करांचे बोल
तू दुसरा गिलख्रिस्ट नाही होऊ शकत कारण तू पहिला महेंद्र सिंग धोनी झालायस ” यष्टीमागच्या तुफानाच हे वक्तव्य.
माही तुझ्याकडून महत्वाचं शिकतोय , ज्याला जिंकायचं आहे त्याला माहित पाहिजे कधी लढायचं आहे आणि कधी शांत राहायचा..

IPL madness is here!

IPL is just around the corner and our favourite actors tell us how they feel about the tournament and who they are supporting this year.
 
Ssharad Malhotra: IPL is one of the coolest cricketing franchises and I’m so looking forward to all the KKR and Mumbai Indian matches. Yes, if time and my work schedule permits, I would love to and go witness the hysteria live in action.
IPL is a mix of glamour, fame, money and cricket as well. It serves as a complete entertainment package.
I support KKR all the way. The first and foremost reason is that I belong to Kolkata (hometown ) and secondly the team’s face and the owner is Mr Shahrukh Khan who happens to be my all time favourite Bollywood actor.
 
Rohitashv Gour: I am not very excited for IPL as when it starts, the television shows’ TRP starts dropping. It’s only a means of glamour and money. I have never supported IPL and I think that all of these matches are fixed so there is no point in spending time on it. I am not at all excited for IPL.
 
Rohit Purohit: I am very excited about IPL as I love cricket. I will definitely try to go to one of the matches. Yes, there is glamour and a lot of money in IPL but I don’t think it has changed the meaning of the game. In fact it has taken it on a different level altogether after all it has given India so many amazing players. So many players have got the opportunity and chance to come out in the limelight due to this platform. And since I am from Jaipur, I always support Rajasthan Royals and then comes the number of Mumbai followed by CSK.
Jason Shah: IPL is definitely very entertaining. It has changed cricket in a lot of ways. People play better cricket now. I personally don’t watch it anymore as most of these games are match-fixed and most of the times the matches are turned around and it seems uncanny. So, I  sometimes watch here and there and keep up with it. I think it has does  not have to do with the performance overall. It’s a different ball game,. I support Mumbai Indians but I am not a die hard cricket fan.
Bhanujeet Singh Sudan: I don’t take IPL as a cricket match. Rather, it’s an event which happens everywhere. There is a match happening and there is also dance happening, superstars coming, parties happening. If you really check out the details then it’s not a match but an event. It’s a means to make money. I have always support Mumbai Indians. I am excited for it. 
Jasmin Bhasin: I am excited for IPL. I support Rajasthan Royals as I belong to Rajasthan. I don’t get time because of my hectic schedules so I haven’t thought of going to watch live matches. But if I get the time then I generally watch it in bits and pieces. Yes, it’s true that IPL is a mix of glamour and money and then comes the performance.
Tinaa Dattaa: I am very excited for IPL. I support KKR and I try my level best to follow the matches of KKR. Yes, I believe that the IPL game  has become more of a glamour and money affair then real cricket. But when people watch it then it’s worth it. It’s both a mix of entertainment and cricket. So I am excited about it. 
Kishori Shahane Vij: Yes, I am very excited for IPL. I don’t think that the real meaning of cricket has changed but a lot of new talent have got the limelight under IPL. IPL has provided a platform for new talent, thus performance has to be at the peak. There is glamour and money and there is nothing wrong in that as everyone wants to be rich. I am supporting Mumbai Indians as I have always adored Sachin Tendulkar and he is the ambassador of Mumbai Indians and the second reason is because I like Nita Ambani.
