It’s embarrassing that in one of the least rainiest of the cities in India, we’ve had three matches spoilt by rain. Of course, I must say that Chennai has been a very rainy city this year, with so many rainy days, though not too much of rain, save the deluge of Oct 27.
With two matches to go and 1-1, it’s indeed interestingly poised, though a 2-2 results is very much on the cards, unfortunately!
The most interesting development in cricket over the last 24 hours was the appointment of Rahul Dravid as captain for tests. All this is fine to me, but the only dissappointing thing in the whole issue is how we’ve treated one of out top ten greatest cricketers and that it needed a damned foreigner to intervene in the whole issue. Comebacks are always heartening — let’s see if Ganguly makes one; the fact that the next game is in Kolkata is going to have a big say!
