'Eleven fools are playing and eleven thousand fools are
Witnessing the game,' said G.B. Shaw about Test Match.
But One Day Match totally changed the nature of Cricket.
So, when 11 Indians are playing 110 crore hearts beat here!
The question of everybody now is 'who is going to beat who?'
Betting on matches goes beyond control all over the world.
Beating all emerges one as winner after a month and more
Until then day and night in the mind cricket comes to the fore!
What is the significance of sports in the world arena today?
Sports stop enmity and breed fraternity among all nations.
The passion for war to win is transferred to sports in spirit
That activates the skill of all players to contribute the best.
So, Wars of the World have become the wares of the worn out.
When this is so why there should be wars in the name of any
Is it not funny to go to war to solve the problems of mankind
Like the savages did thousands of years ago before civilization?
Defeat or victory cannot be predicted and so, it is immaterial
But the materials of the defeated may be destroyed by men,
Whose expectations are not fulfilled in the world cup match!
So, has the attitude of men changed although world chooses sports?
