The timelessness of Indian cricket

by Bhaskar Khaund

First off, why the heck must we have series like this triangular? To say it's boring would be to attribute more substance than it deserves. God what an utterly meaningless bore....If there's to be any balance - not to mention interest - at all in these kinda series, the next time they field, say, a New Zealand team outside New Zealand, they need to ensure its a rugby game with the NZ rugby team playing our cricket team. Still suffering the effects of yesterday ...It was an evening when Paul Simon would have changed his lyrics to "....i'm empty and aching / and i DO know why / (It was that game)"

Right. On to subject line. Ok, you watch Ashish Nehra open the attack and you're in 2003. Couple hours later you see Rahul Dravid come in to bat and that takes you to 2005.

Two years in a couple of hours !

You get a sense of how fast and how quickly forward Indian cricket is moving.

But then you consider the bevy of trundling beauties slow mo-ing in like an ultra efficient line of left handed robots feeding a run feast, dishing out their 120-130 kmph pies to be carted around the ground. Take this brother - may you massacre my figures. And this. And this again.

It feels like acute Deja Vu but then you remember the deal.

Forget 2003. Forget 2005. Forget 2009.

Not for nothing is this the no.1 cricketing nation.

Indian cricket is timeless.

If yesterday's kiwi side played today's english team, you had a game on your hands. And for good measure throw in the Banglas, and you got a tri-series.

I like the time travel, esp when you can watch SRT from 2011 today.

Nehra, Dravid and now Ganguly is mulling Ranji stint and Kumble keeping himself fit on ramp. India rewind.
