Test Cricket – Why it intrigues true cricket fans.

Published

on

test cricket

The first test cricket was played way back in 1877 between Australia and England which Australia won by a decent margin of 45 runs.

Time has flown by, but the beauty and charm of test cricket never fades at least for a true cricket fan. One day international cricket started in 1971, and first ODI was played on 5th Jan 1971 between Australia and England.

Colour clothing in ODI cricket was introduced way back in 1992 during the 5th edition of the world cup. The game got faster and more unthinkable shots came into existence. Truly it brought colours in the life of cricket fans all over the world.

Then a decade or so ago came t20 cricket which brought more excitement to cricket. More strange shots such as dool-scoop, reverse sweeps, switch hits came into existence. Leagues such as IPL attracted huge crowds, and the atmosphere with people cheering their favorite team and players is just electrifying.

But why a true cricket fan wishes to see test matches as often as he can or why does he come back to test matches.

The answer is simple; only test matches can test as the name suggests all the skills of players. It may be technical skills, the temperament or the ability to adjust on any pitch anywhere around the world. You will be exposed as a cricketer in test matches, and if you do well, you will earn respect.

The thrill of watching a test match where a team needs to play out say one and a half day to save a test is unmatched to any form of cricket. The way tide keeps on swinging over the course of five days is simply amazing. One bad session and you could be knocked out.

If cricket is a body, then test cricket is its soul. You can customize the body as much as you can only if it has the soul. So no matter what form of cricket exists or may exist in coming years, test cricket will always remain the DADDY.

IPL madness is here!

Published

on

 
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.

Sahil Khattar: I can anchor anything!

Sahil Khattar, who is currently hosting Pro Wrestling League and has anchored Dance India Dance in the past, says that he loves being a host. The actor adds that he is quite a pro at it now. “When it comes anchoring different genres, I can anchor anything from a baby shower to a funeral. I enjoy it the most as you get to be yourself while hosting an event,” he says.

 

 

In fact, he finds it very thrilling as well. “There’s a thrill and kill in doing a live show. The thrill is that if your impromptu senses are high and if the idea you get is liked by the audiences, you will be on top. But if the same idea takes you down, you will be gone before you know it. If there’s no mistake then it’s fine, the response comes in right there, so that’s the thrill,” he says.

 

Talking about hosting PWL, he says  “There is lot of fun in doing Pro Wrestling League season 4 because I hosted the last season as well. This year, the new thing is that we are travelling to Ludhiana, Chandigarh and Delhi. The wrestlers are very experienced. I am more confident now and I understand the game well. A lot of people tell me that I have eased up and they are liking it, so it leaves a mark on people even when you leave,” he says.
