Day four brought just a little bit of relief to me only as a KKR fan…..with the win it seemed like I wasn’t a sucker,supporting some team without a direction! However, seeing them win without Duckworth Lewis method being brought in would have been greater joy….the real game is about playing it and as a fan its the adrenalin that players bring in us mere mortals which gives value for our money and love for the sport…

Taking on from my last blog, Day 2 was much interrupted with rains and D/L was name of the game then. I raised concern about Lalit Modi’s gamble on SA and as I was wiping off the fears of more bad weather as the pessimist in me…it strikes again.

I am writing this blog impromptu as the news about today’s attack unfolds and without going into any detailed research can only say it is another very sad day not only for Pakistan but for the Sub-Continent.

With the ‘LTTE Gone Bonkers’ in Sri Lanka, ‘Mumbai Under Siege’ a few months ago and now ‘The Massacre in Lahore’ we have sent the right signals to the world – STAY AWAY FROM HERE !

On another note it is time for all citizens in these countries to revolt – against their blood sucking, greedy, dishonest politicians – sooner the better.
