Return of Good cricket (Telecast!)

So we have won the Test in Joburg. That's miracle if we go by our form in ODi series. people will different reasons for this turn around like Ganguly,laxman's batting, Sreesanth's bowling. But for me its important that we won.
Another good thing happening is we are watching the telecast on ESPN-Star Sport which is a treat for 2 reasons.
1. You have good commentators like Sunil Gavaskar, Harsha Bhogale, Alan Donald.
2. There is no foolishness like SET Max team like mandira bedi, Rohit roy and for that matter Siddhu.

If you watch the telecast and listen to the comments carefully you will learn a lot of thing about the game on ESPN telecast. But what happened on Set Max is just not cricket. Thank god that they did not contract for any other event beyond this world cup. But till that time we have suffer them!

In our childhood, may of us, must have read stories in book called Panchatantra. Still I remember one story from the book

Two foxes, while crossing the river were attacked by leeches. The leeches had covered almost entire body. The younger fax asked the older fox, should we remove the leeches?

The older fox said, No let them remain. They have sucked our blood to their full capacity and now they are satisfied. They won’t suck blood any more. If you remove them, again fresh lot of hungry leeches will attack and suck our blood again.
Time is changed, situation is not.
