Mani Shankar Aiyyar on NDTV asked some right questions ---- are CWG 2010 STADIUMS be useful after the games if so how ?
are CWG stadiums be accessed by Indian school kids and college kids ?if so how ?
I feel he is right in asking those questions ,even today after so much corruption ,I feel if any even NEW DELHI school kids access those stadiums after school hours by travelling on METRO ? ------- instead FUNDS must be infused at school level and college level
Can anyone tell me --- even Today in India if one wants to be a cricket player only New delhi ,mumbai ,hyd ,bangalore are possible places
even in those places ,one has to hire coach as per discretion and just practise hard
otherwise some CRICKET ACADEMIES like Azhar has set up in Hyderabad or Ifran Pathan bros will set up somewhere in GUJARAT (not yet )
but how many Indian kids can access AZHARS cricket academy - defintely only Rich kids (upper middle class from Hyd and secunderabad cities) ---- rahul dravid must have studied in some christian missionary school at Bangalore ,fortunate the school has proper ground in some sense likewise many others ex players and current players ------------------ Most Indian schools do not have grounds ,if they do they do not have any access to kits or stuff (Iam talking about zph govt schools and some Private schools as well)
so really CRICKET is accessed by Mumbai Bangalore Hyderabad New delhi elite kids
sachin was exception ,he shifted to his aunts place and got up at 5 am and practised at Sivaji park
That means - 6 X4 = 24 years Indian hockey was world champions
during the same period PAKISTAN was playing good ---------- after that both India and Pakistan lost world rankings and are over taken by Europeans and Aussies
Spain Germany Dutch Australia
even last CWG 2010 games HOCKEY - aussies thrashed India by 10 GOALS -- so what are the reasons ---- i)I feel lack of facilities like Synthetic surface at school level (Grass roots)
ii)Lack of professionalism in Indian hockey board more political appointees rather than Players to oversee administration and other matters
iii)Lack of using more Technologies compared with Germans or aussies ----- Questions are ----- why does TELUGU film actor Nagarjuna send his school going son AKHIL all the way to australia for Cricket Coaching ? -- why does west bengal police send NAXALITES who gave up arms to sports inst in GERMANY for soccer training
answers are --------- we do not give importance to PROFESSIONAL SPORTS INSTITUTE ?
ok they did CWG 2010 GAMES And those stadiums ,I have serious doubts which school kids in NEW DELHI will acess those facilities ?
Even BCCI all it does is gets some Foerign coach or physio thats all
Does BCCI have a min white paper or policy standards like what are the minumum practise that Indian team should undergo before embarking on a tough tour like AUSTRALIA?
To all people out there ======================= It is just not CRICKET
even when with so many PUNABI sikh players ,Sonia ,Rahul etc watching CWG 2010 finals
INDIA was thrashed 10 goals by AUSSIE mens team samething with the NET BALL TEAM aussie women thrash Indian women netball team (again many PUNJABIS too in the team)
IT is not because we lack talent It is because we lack preparation and foresight by BCCI
-- HOCKEY we lost beacause ,not many Indian schools or even colleges have HOCKEY ground even if they do they do not have SYNTHETIC surface -- same way BCCI for last TEN YEARS never bothered to lay GREEN TURFS AT home
make attempts to have INDIA A team tour overseas and play tournaments in Australia ,west indies or South Africa
VIRAT KOHLI YUVRAJ SINGH etc are all from INDIA UNDER 19 youth team that won WORLD CUP(UNDER 19) AT KUALA LUMPUR MALAYSIA years ago
BCCI should have either made Ranji Trophy more competitive or laid Green turfs at home
or better should have sent every year - overseas to Australia(Pura Cup) South Africa domestic tournamnet West Indies doemstic tournament
just like how Vic bush rangers and NSW Blues and others toured India for IPL tornament
That way those 19 years olds would have been exposed to pitches and conditions overseas
coupled with that BCCI should invest in indoor nets with BOWLING MACHINES and hot spot technologies so Indian batsmen can review their shots with Hot spot technologie

India was so bad that the first question that came Clarke's way at the press conference was "did it feel as if you were playing Bangladesh?"
