The Mercy Killers
A tweet (by @sidvee) I came across after the first test in Kotla seems to precisely capture the insatiable craze surrounding the satirical world of Indian Cricket:
‘Indian victory in vain as Tendulkar falls short’.
While it’s tough to keep a straight face on realizing the relevance and wit of the deliciously-wicked take on the current situation, it is also a bit scary to note that an entire country has been taken hostage. The famous Indian thirst for glory and statistics seems to be towering over the vastly-improved home-conditioned Test squad, and every Test match played after April has been subject to wild mood-swings and broken destinies. Even the England debacle seems to have had little effect over most mentalities, with the obsession now reaching comical proportions. What’s more, even Sachin Tendulkar has started to look ordinary now.
