Breaking/Brief news

    News from England

    Harbhajan Singh has very mischievously signed on with Surrey from July. It isn't immediately clear when his term there would end.

    With the Indian team having more unfit players than fit ones, he will fancy his chances soon. I'm sure Varindar Seewag Virender Sehwag is also on the look-out for a county side which would accomodate the tremendous starts he'd provide them as an opener in all forms of the game (for e.g., 23 in 21 balls in county cricket, 23 in 16 balls in a one-dayer and 23 in 11 balls in Twenty20).

    Today is also the 75th anniversary of India's first ever test match (Lord's, 1932) and the 24th anniversary of Kapil flashing that toothy grin (Lord's, 1983).

    I'm not going to claim I saw the World Cup final live. I was fast asleep. As an eight-year-old, I didn't know what was happening, except that there were a bunch of uncles and aunts staying up till late in the night to see India take on West Indies. The first time I knew about the result was when they excitedly shook me awake screaming something to the effect of "We have won the World Cup".

    More than being a fly on the wall in the Indian dressing room after the win, I'd love to have been around in the West Indian dressing room! Of course, retribution was quick and painful!
