India wins against Srilanka at Mohali
Greg Chappel does bhangra.
India lose against South Africa at Eden Gardens.
What will Greg dear do?
Welll one day prior to the game Mr. Chappel already does quite a bit of damage.
I got to know this through one of the tv channels i rarely watch (Zee news) who i believe should get an award for dramatisation..ohh they’re probably second to aaj tak maybe..(repeated views of certain footage, freezing them and showing them again n again..ohh and the way they describe-Cricket,Kolkata aur Kalah -something like that..heights) But what they pointed out was decent enough..
My city- is one of passion!! And so are the people here..
I’m sure everybody knows quite a lot about the Chappel-Sourav controversy. People here in cal idolise Sourav-he’s the king, the god for them. So since all this controversy..lead to Mr. captain being thrown out of the team (on the basis of no form and fitness-i got to know today- always avoided this entire controversy cause frankly i don’t care much about either parties)
All this mayhem obviously enraged the crowds here..afterall he is their king..and no one would like to see injustice being bestowed upon their idol..and well not only the crowds- even the celebs, few politicians came out actively supporting him- they actually demanded "no sourav-no match" today at Eden…even a popular radio station has been having this "support for sourav" campaign.
Their arguments- why all the blame on sourav? If his form is lacking why is he being thrown out, while others who are also out of form still manage to stay in the side..despite making less runs..why is he being picked again and again when even sachin has bad days, laxman,sehwag too were out of form-how come they were never thrown out??…Also..besides Sachin he is the only Indian batsman to cross 15,000 runs (that was what they showed on tv…i do not know bout the stats-do Not blame me if am wrong here) We’ve probably forgotten that he brought that killer spirit in the team, the passion…(ohh btw I loved all the recent India vs. Pakistan matches..)
So now back to the point..since the last few days- there have been people screaming "we want sourav".crowds gathered outside Eden today shouting slogans, burning Gregs effigies. So back to the zee news drama- Yesterday post practise Greg was welcomed outside with shouts of ‘sourav,sourav’ ..he is shown walking towards the bus, climbing up and from the window his hand comes out and Mr. Honourable Coach all the way from wherever flashes his middle finger to the crowd.
I mean, hello? You hate sourav, alright but this is not done..So zee news keeps showing this clip again and again and again.very dramatically..his finger encircled in red and all that….and asks for public opinion – who are Obviously enraged by this action of his.
The question here is- how can he take out this personal grudge against sourav on the crowd..?
He’s a celeb..has some moral responsibilities…he should apologise atleast..
I am no big Sourav fan…but Now i absolutely detest Greg Chappel..the guy is unethical! They got him cause he’s experienced, professional and all that blah..and this is how he behaves! (the last time i heard bout some celebs finger flashing incident was that of britney spears-the dum blonde)
John Wright- we miss you!
