Somethings just dont change

Yes, life goes on with myriad changes around you. Small kids no longer learn the 'twinkle twinkle' ryhmes. They gyrate to the tunes of 'Ek Baar Aajaa Aajaa....'. Science stream cutoffs in Delhi University is 80 %; for commerce it is 96 % !
The list goes on....

But some things dont the Indian Cricket Team's record overseas. It was pathetic before, and nothings different now either! Dhoni and Pathan, classified as demigods by the indian media are back to square one. Dravid, so confident about his boys before crossing over, is now wondering whether his team is anywhere close to a world cup winning squad.

Yes, a single 1-4 loss doesnt mean we should ring the alarm. But my point is a single (ok a couple probably) 4 - 1 win at home or in the sub continent was no reason for rejoicing either.

See after all we are Indians who have never been able to compete at the highest level at any sport. And we cant complain about lack of facilities or funding in the case of the pampered sport of our country. Then why do we perform badly when we go out of India? Not a difficult question to answer!

its not that we are always performing badly. its just that somebody is performing better than us. its high time that we stop treating our cricketers as entertainers. they are playing a game very professionally with the best professionals of this world. so its alright if they lose occationally.
