Previous T20 Worldcup champion India has made an exit from super 8 stage of the tournament this time. Indian cricket fanatics have crossed the boundary line in expressing their views and opinions. There have been reports of Dhoni’s effigies being burnt to protest Indians exit in the home town of the team captain. May be, we might want to add to the traffic chaos and spoil the miserably bad roads a bit more by burning stuff on the public roads. Why not, everyone needs to a reason to express anguish. Should we really take it so serious? Come on give them a break!
It doesn’t stop there, now everyone takes a dig at the strategy adopted by the team. No surprises if a set of individual cricketers are targetted to play the blame game. Last time no one had expected this team to win, the expectations were very high this time even though Indians never looked so convincing throughout the tournament. Last time when the team arrived with the cup, a huge welcome parade was arranged on an open top bus to welcome the heros. God knows how it is going to be this year. Everyone wants to be a hero, but wouldn’t it be wrong to expect someone to become a hero when they really aren’t?
I have seen a couple of my friends openly saying on social network sites that they aren’t Indian cricket team supporters anymore! I fail to understand why fans can’t accept the reality. After all it is a game. Winning and losing is a part of the game. Take it easy folks.
