Cricket is like a soap opera

Siddhartha Vaidyanathan‘s (http://sidveeblogs.wordpress.com/ & former Assitant Editor Cricinfo) take on Cricket, IPL et al:

What is it about Cricket that we all get hooked to?

It’s like a soap opera. It’s also like reality TV. And it’s (mostly) unscripted.

Cricket ka Karmayudh- IPL: 

It’s a bit too early to say whether the negatives outweigh the positives. The IPL is not going anywhere. It’s here to stay. 

Post Ganguly – DravidLaxman – Tendulkar era: 

I don’t think there is going to be any player appearing out of thin air. The core group remains Kohli, Pujara, Rohit, Raina, Rahane, Mukund. Sehwag and Gambhir will be around. And Yuvraj too.

About Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar

He takes every practice session seriously. He is completely devoted to the game. He’s humble. These are rare qualities, especially among extraordinarily successful people.

Missing consistency in Indian plays: 

You need players who can be unpredictable. If every player was consistent, this would be a boring game. I love Sehwag’s unpredictability. It’s what makes him score 219 on one day and 0 the next.

Assembly of a commentary team from Twitter: 

I would sure like to see many of these Twitter folk talk about cricket in a pub. The way they argue, there may be blood.

In Siddhartha Vaidyanathan’s dream team God of Cricket Sachin is rested. Others includes, Sehwag,  Jayasuriya, Laxman, Lara, Mark Waugh, Carl Hooper, Gilchrist, Wasim, Ambrose, Shane Bond &  Warne .
