Brian Charles Lara

Hello World !!!

Brian Charles Lara !!!
Well what can we say about this great man.
Everytime he goes out to bat you can be sure he will entertain you.
Right from the time I've seen him bat -
I make it a point to watch the match when he is batting.
He is truly amazing.

Look how he played in the last two tests against Pakistan.
First test a patient century against fighting circumstances to avoid defeat.
Second test he comes out all guns firing to make one of the fastest hundreds of
all time. 7th fastest to be precise. He went on to make a double hundred.
9th double hundred. This takes him on par with Sunil Gavaskar on 34 tons.
Sachin is ahead of him with 35 tons and Ricky Ponting is chasing them with 32 tons.

One thing i hate is when people compare Brian Lara with Sachin Tendulkar.
Common folks these two guys might have started out their career at the same time;
but nowhere can you compare these two. The comaprison some other time.

Take care folks ! Cheers !!!

ICC Cricket

Hello World !!!

Well long time no blogging !!!
Quite tied up at work of late.

Australia finally broke their jinx and lifted the ICC Cricket Champions trophy beating the Windies in the Finals, quite a one sided finals i must say !
India were pathetic as they lost to the Aussies in the semifinals.
Guess we have to get Saurav back !

The winter is setting in in this part of the world ! Getting pretty chilly in the mornings and evenings ! Have to get all the warm clothes out ! Mornings dont feel like leaving the warm and cozy bed - but somehow drag myself to work. So nice to lie in bed all day and if somebody nice is there with you ! Seems like heaven !!! Hmmmm....

Have a nice day !!! Cheers !!!
