We should grow up as a nation, see Australia... what Clark said winning world cup needs skils not emotion. we as fans should not be so moved either in a win or a loss after all there can only be 1 winner, we in India have been always following kings, political leaders, reel life hero, sports persons... its in our genes. better we should develop ourself to be fun loving and professionals. In Australia these world cup winners are all working for their living they do some JOB and not like our cricketers doing some advertisement and earning more than any engineer, doctor. Cricketers should be treated as just the other person in a around us don\'t make them GOD.

well said Mr Ranjeet. We are the first to enjoy the winning and last one to be with losers. We are not practical. We only follow the winners. We go to the extent of searching personal life of our players in case of failure which is not expected from followers of Gentlemans game
Mr. Shastri and the present hero are sailing in the same boat.
They lack commitment once a person attains certain height he feels he can do what ever he wants, the fans will love you if you have commitment towards the game rather than with your GF in a Sydney resturant, you cannot flirt with your GF one day before the big game, it would have been rather advisable to give some more time to your practice and concentrate hard this is the style of great player e.g. Sachin Tendulkar. The movement Virat arrived on pitch it was very clear from his face that he was very tired and would not last long. Please play the game in the spirit of the game for the country rather than perosonal gains. Further I am sure he will play well in IPL for the reasons known to all....
He is the biggest opportunist. He is eyeing benefit and favours from the IPL via Srinivas & Dalmia & Co. and therefore it is but obvious that he will praise their team (Dhoni, Ashwin, Kohli etc. even if they fail) Making runs is not a big job as a batman is bound to make runs in a match because there are no quality bowlers in opposition as they were in the past. Shastri's praise for them is purposeful.
My thoughts: Every Indian team member is on a job which they are paid for and paid quiet heavily!! Like, we - you, me we all who work for any organization if make mistake (like the one Virat did) at our workplace, we probably would lose our jobs or get cut on our pay. At the same time we get recognition when we make good contribution. So why not in this case players who did not perform gets laid off or gets a pay cut. After all they are also on Duty!! It is all the same...there\'s no difference between us and them...then why make any difference? - Comment if you like!
Let us have the facts straight.In recent times, Virat Kohli has scored most of his centuries in Test matches and not in One dayers.His form in onedayers have been disastrous in England and inconsistant in Australia.In actual, Virat Kohli is a media hype.We have to find out reliable consistant No 3 or 4 batsman like Dravid or Tendulkar.Definitely Virat Kohli will not fit the bill.But Ravi Shashtri is right in one aspect. This very mediocre Indian team whichdoes not deserve to go beyond Quarter finals of world Cup has played beyond their competency level to advance to Semi Finals. That is really praiseworthy.
Had Virat stayed one more over on that day that too at that situation! definitely he would have taken India past Auz's score. He is the only one available in Indian cricket team confident enough to take on Australia.
Really sir every bodies heart were beating on that day of 26/03/2015 because missing of two zeros 00 front of 1 security person watching very well through out the night fortunately he slept at the time of steeling but he is a good watchman what to do
