Beware of Those Empathizing with Crying Steve Smith

Use of sandpaper by Australian cricketers to alter the ball condition by rubbing it on it - now called the "sandpaper gate" has already resulted in few casualties.

Steve Smith (captain of australia cricket team) and David Warner are banned for 1 year from playing cricket. Darren Lehman, the controversial coach has resigned as this article is being written. These guys won't participate in 2018 IPL edition too.

In his press conference, admitting the sin, Steve Smith cried. While one can understand Smiths emotional state, what has been intriguing is some of the Indians who have also shed their tears along with him, and asking cricket Australia to forgive him.

complete statement of steve smith as he cries during press conference accepting his mistake in ball tampering saga

While there has been no statement from Virat Kohli on Twitter Facebook or Instagram related to ball tampering controversy, quite a few cricketers have spoken their mind.

Ravichandran Ashwin has just tweeted : "The world simply wants to see you cry, once you have cried they will feel satisfied and live happily ever after. If only empathy was not just a word and people still had it. God give steve smith and bankroft all the strength to come out of this".

Here one can understand Ravichandran Ashwin and similar reaction by other cricketers like Michael Vaughan and Faf Du Plessis empathizing with smith and calling him a "one good guy".

Vaughan, former captain of England has posted this tweet : "Good people make mistakes. I honestly feel Steve Smith and Cam bancroft are decent guys who had a moment of madness, they deserve a second chance and hopefully get the right support around them now. Takes a lot of guts to do what they did". This is same guy who blamed VVS Laxman of India to use vaseline on edge of bat few years ago.

Faf Du Plessis was spotted putting chewing gum like material on cricket ball in Australia and was fined too. While powerful cricket board insured that Rahul Dravid got away with similar incident in Australia during his days as Indian cricketer.

Common thing here is every incident has Australia Cricket team as a common. Let's move on and back to topic.

What is beyond logical mind is tears shed by people who constantly attack indan captain Virat Kohli for his aggressive attitude, and made everyone believed over the years that he is a spoilt bratt. 95 percent of such people are those who have occupied Indian cricket's commentary box, and have influenced people, and have created an Image, a bad image of Virat Kohli.

We have heard these people commenting on TV "I have no time for such things". These are the men who seems to be in forefront to empathize with cheater Steve Smith (by his own admission).  These are the same men who never forgave S Sreesanth, even though honourable court cleared him.

These crocodiles (Indian cricket hijackers sympathizing with Smith) are the ones who blindly suggested many a times to enforce Aussie domestic cricket structure in India too, blindly ignoring the length and breadth and diversity of India.

While they may have quite a few fans, millions of them, following them on social media and hypnotized by their artificial simplicity, those who are new to cricket, it's a humble request: "Beware of  those empathizing with crying steve smith".

Virat Kohli is already the best Indian Cricket Captain

How do you measure : Who is the best captain of a country's cricket team? Who really has been the best captain of Indian Cricket Team? Some of you will look at stats and would rank a captain based on win percentage, the number of matches won against the matches that India lost under a captain.

Some others may focus on how many big tournaments, like an ICC World Cup, or an ICC Champions Trophy, a team has won under a captain. And greater the number the higher a rank a captain may get based on that number among the best cricket captains.

But there is more to measure a captain. Best captains not only win tournaments and series but also address and try to correct the age old problems in the teams, without making excuses.

This is where Virat Kohli has already succeeded when compared to his predecessors. The perennial problem of Indian cricket teams is the attitude with which they play cricket. Most times it has been dull, boring and defensive. This has been backed by everyone who has …

One Record Virat Kohli Must Go For

Virat Kohli is the modern run machine. Every time indian cricket captain takes the field records starts to tumble. There are many virat kohli records which his fans are extremely proud of, but there is 1 cricketing record, a batting record, which Virat Kohli must go for, for if he is able to achieve it he will be extremely proud of himself.

We know Virat Kohli doesn't care about records. It happens for him.He is one of those record breakers who breaks and runs, and finds a next record standing hopelessly in front of him so that he can  break it. Breaking records seems to have become a second nature for him. You think about a cricketing record and you will find virat kohli chasing it, or very close to breaking it.



Virat has made so many records that breakdown of all his records will need a separate article. But here is 1 record which virat kohli must go for and something which we want to discuss about.

Record for Maximum Number of Runs in a Single Tour: So far virat kohli has amass…

Don't blame Kohli for Loss When You Can't praise him for Wins

India has just lost couple of test matches in South Africa and battle ready swords are out pointed towards Virat Kohli, the captain of Indian Cricket team.

The quickness with which these swords have come out of scabbards shows that majority of indian cricket critics were waiting for an opportunity. An opportunity that Virat Kohli denied them ever since he took over captaincy in middle of the test series in Australia from his predecessor MS Dhoni.

So called experts in Indian cricket had no doubt whatsoever that Virat Kohli will fail as captain. They thought he is over aggressive, arrogant, and what not. And when he lost that first test as a captain at Adelaide while going for a chase, the critics got off to the perfect start.



While Kohli thought he had sawed right seeds in encouraging team to go for a win in a overseas test (a rarity in India cricket), critics called it a nonsense and arrogant move.

For the next 6 months no stone was left unturned to remind kohli that he committed a s…
